whic is more romantic - church or beach wedding?

Recommended Posts

just last night, hubby asked me if i wanted to "marry him again" , this time a church wedding . while i find it very sweet, i just don't have the luxury of time to undergo the wedding preparation and hassle (again)

he insisted that church weddings are more romantic that beach weddings, oh we got married on Saboey, a Thailand beach wedding spot...

 

I definitely find the beach more romantic than church. Religion plays an important part our lives and relationship too but for me, it doesn't matter where the place is for as long as we invite HIM, He is still present in the whole holy matrimony process.

church weddings have many qualities that can make them better/more meaningful for people who are religious ... however i don't think they are "more romantic" at all. i am surprised (given what you've told us) that you actually went through with a beach wedding without then having the marriage blessed thru a religious ceremony in a church. religion seems pretty important to you both. for instance, catholics wouldn't even consider you to be married (which imo is a little silly ... i am not religious, but definitely believe that whomever you call "god" is present for all that you do when you follow your heart, whether it happens to be in a church or not)!

 

i don't know how long you've been married, but if it's important to your husband then maybe you should consider renewing your vows for your 5 or 10 year anniversary. love.gif

I don't either is more romantic than the other. I grew up in the South, and I saw church weddings all my life. I always thought I would get married in a church. It's funny how I'm so ready to go away and get married on a beach!!

I LOVE the beach! So it all depends on your preference.

If your hubby really wants to do it, maybe he can help you more with the planning this time around or like cougs said, revisit the idea in 5 to 10 years

I'm Catholic, so i grew up with church weddings all my life. So to me, a beach wedding is more romantic. But then again, we are not devout Catholics (we opted out of the wedding prep at a church since its soo much of a hassle).

 

I think since religion is important to you, then maybe a church would be nice -- especially since he's into the idea. How often does the groom have a strong opinion on wedding planning? Keep us updated on your decision!

I don't think one is more romantic than another...it is all just preference. If a church wedding is important to your hubby, maybe have a small ceremony to renew vows at some point.

Perhaps "romantic" to him means more spiritual?? By virtue of being longer and having more symbolic gestures, that to him might mean it's more meaningful and hence romantic?? In either case, having another ceremony locally would presumably allow more friends and family to attend and maybe that's what he wantshuh.gif

 

Bottom line - the fact that he wants to marry again is romantic!!!!!!!! cheesy.gif

yea, that's really a personal preference. to me, there is nothing romantic about a church wedding. but that's why we chose to get married on the beach! i like the renewing of the vows idea that someone suggested though if it's something that would mean something to the both of you.

According to me it has really very trendy to wed on beach.A beach is certainly one of the most beautiful venues for a wedding, it can be very secluded and intimate, and is the definitive "relaxed" wedding.I love intimate ceremonies where the guests circle the couple for their vows you can even ask everyone at your beach wedding to hold hands and surround you with love.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
