|Where to Begin - getting started...|
Planning your wedding can be an overwhelming and awesome task. To assist you in your planning, here are the top five things you want to do first.
ONE: Create a planning calendar. Click here for a planning calendar from Real Simple Weddings magazine.
TWO: Create a realistic budget. Click here for a budget worksheet from Real Simple Weddings magazine.
THREE: Reserve your wedding date at Central United Methodist Church. Arrangements for weddings at Central begin by meeting with the Church Administrator to select a date and time. Preliminary paperwork must be completed and returned the church along with the $150 security deposit BEFORE the wedding can be confirmed on the church calendar.
All weddings ceremonies must conclude no later than 6:00 pm.
FOUR: Get your marriage license. A valid California marriage license is necessary. Both parties must be present to obtain the license. Plan to apply far enough in advance. Please bring the license to the wedding rehearsal. The pastor cannot conduct a wedding without the license.
FIVE: Secure the location for your Rehearsal Dinner and Reception.
