For me, I was married the first time in a chapel, the 2nd time in a courthouse and the third time I was married in a courthouse. I would like to have a church wedding, but I can't afford that kind of extravagence, so we might go to Vegas or New Orleans to renew our vows. I don't think it matters, your marriage is in the eyes of God no matter where you are married.

I would really want a church wedding, or at the very least, one that is officiated by a priest. I've been brought up Catholic and most of the weddings that I have witnessed were church weddings, so since I was a little girl I had already imagined that I would be married in a church in the future.

yes we do have our imaginations and our dreams when we were little. but reality do set in sometimes. well I am very hopeful that someday you would have a church wedding and not merely as a witness. church weddings are always dreams and wishes for catholic upbringings. hope you would achieve these dream.

My hubby is an atheist so I cannot experience church wedding..only civil wedding sad to know but theres nothing i can do. I cannot force my hubby to believe in my religion its his choice because the more you force someone who doesnt not believe in anything.

I am not a religious person so for me to ever have even wanted a church ceremony would have been a bit silly but I know certain parts of the ceremony sounds romantic but I think it is even nicer for two people to put their own heart into a ceremony, I have been a witness three times for people in a registry office and i think they are so cold, I think maybe for two people to create their own surrounding and service and really put their hearts into it and make it so individual as possible sounds good to me.

For me, it would definitely be a church wedding. I came from a Roman Catholic family and was brought up with the idea that marriage must have to be officiated by a priest and in the church at that. I don't buy the idea of other people that church wedding is way much expensive than a civil. It can be a simple one, such as residence reception only with family members and close friends as witnesses to the ceremony. No need to spend much, what's more important is that the wedding was made more solemn since it was held inside the church.
