so my dream church venue seems to be drifting away from me :'( *sob* NOoooo…
so now i’m trying to find alternatives to a church wedding but still incorporate my religious beliefs in it. and i REALLY want a cross. but…the thought of a GIANT cross in the middle of …let say, a garden…doesn’t seem so .. appealing. haha
i tried googling, but i dont think i’m googling the right words…
so would you bees please help me and my fiance to find some inspirational pictures of non-church, religious wedding settings? that …incorporates the cross?
thank you so much for all your help!!

Dressing up a huge cross
Are you looking for suggestions for a venue? In what area?

Isn’t it generally thought of as kind of bad taste to put up a crucifix or cross in a place that is not meant for religious worship? Maybe I’m off base, but that is what I always thought…maybe some of the Christians on the board can answer that one for me.

@Wonderstruck: I have no idea! I never considered a non-church venue for our ceremony site so I’m looking to see if it’s even possible? i mean, i dont see why it’s not Possible, just wondering if it’s been done before and what it looks like… you know?
@julies1949: hi! no i’m not really looking for a venue, just looking for an idea of what other people have done with non-church ceremony that involves a cross. thanks!

it’s been difficult because apparently a lot of churches in my area don’t give up their venue for weddings in december!? 🙁 🙁
just for background:
i’m in Los angeles, and i’m looking for a more cathedral-looking church that is still protestant. i know…i have limited myself there, but i just really love the architectural appeal of such churches. my dream church was westminster presbyterian in pasadena but they’re not having weddings on my weekend. *sob*
oh and the church i’m going to now as a regular member is hosted in a remodeled theater, and i dont think they host weddings anyway so it’s not an option 🙁

@courtney1188: idk… I mean if it’s a secular place couldn’t it just be considered another decoration? Obviously putting a cross up in a mosque or something would be poor taste lol.
@OP: I really wanted to have a cross over us when we got married too, but we’re getting married in a cabin in the woods instead of a church. In the end I decided that our ceremony itself, which is very Christian, is enough to express our beliefs. I just couldn’t think of a good way to incorporate a cross.
