when it comes to getting married which do you prefer? a grand church wedding or a simple civil wedding,. for me i want a church wedding, it does not necessarily mean a grand wedding, i want a simple yet solemn church wedding with the profer wedding rites. a garden wedding is also fine with me.

What's a civil wedding? I've only ever heard of a church wedding or a registry office wedding. I don't like churches, so I would want to get married in a registry office, or go on holiday somewhere and have it done on location.

civil wedding is the one you call a registry office wedding, it's done at the mayor's office or a judge office.

I experienced already a civil wedding before with my ex-husband nowAnd If I will be given a chance again to be married, maybe I would like to have church wedding even it is not so grand It seems I want to know how is the feeling of marching in the aisle and hwearing a long dress like a princess.

Neither - a garden wedding would be perfect for me, especially since my partner is not religious so a church wedding would be kind of pointless! I'm also a bit of an outdoor person so why not take advantage of a beautiful garden if there's one you really like. My partner & i will probably just elope - which i assume is what you mean by a civil wedding? I figure it all means the same thing & no matter how it's done or if it's done at all - it doesn't mean you love the person any more or less :) Both of my cousins were married in a church & i found it very uncomfortable (sitting on the wooden pues for so long) & it also got kind of stuffy in there - it was fairly warm when they both got married (late spring, 12 months apart) so being outside would be warm but refreshing at the same time!

I had neither exactly. I had my wedding at a friend's house, and all my close friends were around me. The marriage was performed by a Unitarian Universalist minister, which was awesome because my husband and I are from different religions, and our minister worked both religions into our service. =) A lot of people think that because I had a small wedding I must feel bad that my family wasn't there, but I remember looking around at my friends who were there with me and saying "All my family is right here" even though not one person in the room was related to me by blood. =)

Neither actually...My ideal wedding would be an outdoor one with my 'family' and friends and all the kids, we'd bbq, have live music, fun things for all the kids, no formal dress at all (just decent and clean)...it'd be a relaxing atmosphere and so on and it would be a Pagan ceremony....My actual wedding took place in Jamiaca at a resort and it was Pagan and just the 4 of us and two witnesses LOL

that would depend on budget,, if you have money for a grand wedding then go for it.. but if you dont have enough budget then go for the simple one yet memorable.. well ofcourse every girl dreams to be married at church.. well garden wedding is somewhat cute and romantic.. but i go for church weddings.. :)
