I am a hindu so we dont marry in Church nor in temple.We book big hall for whole day and marriage here is big affair.Genarally Indian marriages are big affair and it bring whole family friends together. I would like to marry indian way,wearing red sari and gold bangles in hand.I dont want to marry in civil way.Thats boring.

I hope one day someone will invite you to a civil ceremony that you don't find boring. it's only boring if you make it that way. my wedding was far from boring. lots of guests said it was the favourite wedding they'd been to.

This will depend on the couple's choice. But to me, it doesn't really matter what kind of wedding because weddings do not determine the kind of relationship when you get married. What's important is that you love each other and you are making your marriage work. Weddings are just for formality sake.

I had a big church wedding and my father invited around 600 people for the wedding. Other than the number of people invited, it was not very grand. We spend for decoration and transportation expenses, but we tried to keep it to the minimum. It was the first wedding in my family and my father wanted to invited all his friends and family members. I would prefer a small wedding with around 50 people. I think it is fine to go for a big wedding only if you have enough money, otherwise it is a waste of money.

if i were to ask also i would prefer a small wedding with the closest friends and relative around as i believe this would be the most solemn possible.

civil wedding are usually fast officiated because its not ritually induced ceremony, (unlike church weddings wherein you follow ceremonial acts, like marching of the sponsors, bearers, etc.) have you ever witness a matrimonial ceremony done by neo-cathecitical(a catholic charismatic community)not sure with spelling..hehe they normally officiate a matrimony lasting 4 hours, mostly singing praise songs and the couple normally face the audience in contrast to normal catholic way of matrimony. one sentiment though which i am saddened by how catholic officials propose weddings.. (i am a catholic too),they commercialize weddings ! imagine they offer packages special ordinary semi-ordinary weddings(special weddings cost much, around 10thousand in some famous cathedrals) they often times criticize those who opt to choose civil weddings as immoral and not a true blessed union, while they don't realize that the payments in a church wedding is expensive thereby making it to the masses unavailable due to budget constraints.. how come they don't normally preside free weddings if they are true to what they preach?

It is every woman's dream to walk down the aisle wearing a long white gown on her wedding day. My dream came true when I married my One True Love a year ago and nothing compares to the happiness we felt because everything was properly done and according to what we have planned. Have a good day!

It's really your choice. If you want it to be extravagant and bombastic then plan a church wedding. I don't any problems on a civil marriage. My fiance might. Lol.

I think Civil wedding is much more practical and more simpler than church weddings. But if I got to get married one day I still want it to be in the church. It's an old tradition that I really cherished from my parents heritage. It must be a simple church wedding not extravagant. After all it's the thoughts that counts. But nowadays when financial problems is still very much at large I might change my mind, But I will still save money for my wedding I want to give my future wife the special wedding she rightfully deserves.

I would also want my wedding to be in Church. It just doesn't feel solemn and all when it's through the judge. It's too quick. Seems like the feeling is so abrupt. I know it's more practical to do so, but for me when you get married it's the happiest day of a woman's life and the preparations just makes the couple more excited as the day draws near, civil weddings are just too informal for me.

Church is the best choice but also cost a lot. I think people wed in civil because of financial reason and not because they want it. Beside they can have a church wedding if they have enough money to finance the wedding.

I married last year, but it's very pity that I didn't go to a chuch to start the ceremony. In my honest, I really hope I can get my wedding there.

Choosing between a church wedding and a civil wedding depends on the choice of the couple to be married. It really doesn't matter what kind it is to me because the it will not determine the kind of relationship you will have when you are already married. If you want the blessing from God, then have a church wedding. But if you want just a confirmation then have a civil wedding. Weddings are formality sakes and they don't have anything to do with the marriage. There are lots to consider when marrying, the financial matters, the beliefs, the tradition and many more.

for me i prefer church wedding of course because im not only blessed in the eyes of man im also bless in the eyes of GOD and aside from that its gonna happen only once in a lifetime and its one of the highlight or one the most important day of my life, it should be special and i also want to experience what woman feel when she will walk in the isle while her groom is waiting, that would be so amazing feeling i think!

It is my dream to have a big wedding but practically speaking right now, it doesn't matter to me anymore as long as it is intimate and solemn that's my dream wedding. I also prefer christian weddings, I attended some and from what I experience the ceremony is very personalized because the preacher talks and addressed things directly to the couple, very intimate, not like some of the weddings where everything is ceremonial.

I think we all (men and women) crave for an elegant church wedding. However, it all depends on the budget. We might want it but then again we may not afford it especially given these tough economic times.
