Wedding Advice

  1. Consult your parents concerning your intention to marry one another and their expectations of the marriage preparation and customs that they may wish to observe. The aim is to get their blessings and approval well ahead of time. Family support is usually more forthcoming when they are properly consulted.
     
  2. Plan well in advance, at least one (1) year ahead of the desired Wedding Date. It is advisable to plan a few possible dates. Attend the Marriage Preparation Course recommended by Faith Methodist Church. This is compulsory for all who wish to be married at Faith.
     
  3. DO NOT book your Wedding Dinner until you have received approval from the Church Office regarding the use of the Church premises and the Officiating Pastor. Please see the Pastor before making any plans and find out all other requirements and procedures for having a Church Wedding. (For Solemnization, please refer to “Checklist for Couples Marrying outside ROM” below)
     
  4. Plan your actual Wedding Day proceedings as detailed as possible, engage a Coordinator who will help to oversee the smooth-running of the plan. He/She must contact the Operations Manager for a briefing before the wedding day. Things to plan include:
    • What to wear for Bride, Groom, Page Boy, Flower girl, Best Man, Bride’s Maid, etc.
       
    • Printing of Invitation Cards
       
    • Guests List

  5. Confirm all your bookings as early possible, including your honeymoon plans. Ensure that your new home is ready for living in after your honeymoon.
     
  6. As a couple entering into a unique permanent relationship, the work of planning for your Wedding Day is a great opportunity to build a mutually supportive partnership. The key is to aim for oneness in your decisions. Never indulge in any act of abandonment or neglect in the crucial planning stage for any reason.
     
  7. Keep your Wedding celebration simple. The objective is to plan a memorable and meaningful celebration for yourselves, your families, relatives and friends. This is achievable only if both of you are committed to God and cover all your plans in prayers. PRAY for:
    • your wedding
       
    • the planning
       
    • the people helping
       
    • your guests
