Congratulations on your engagement! You are in love and it’s the real thing. Together, you have made the big decision to get married. But now what? Not only do you have to plan a wedding, but you must also prepare for marriage.
Planning a wedding can be overwhelming! To give you peace of mind, our wedding coordinators will guide you in thoughtfully planning every aspect of your wedding – rehearsal, ceremony, and reception – to make it the joyful occasion you anticipate and creates memories you will value for the rest of your lives together.
Preparing for a marriage is required! We value the significance of biblical marriage as a sacred, life-long commitment that reflects the deep relationship Christ has with His followers – the Church. We are committed to helping you establish a strong foundation as you begin married life together.
All couples wishing to be married at Blythe Island Baptist Church or by a BIBC Pastor are expected to complete our premarital requirements involving three steps:
- Complete the online Wedding Application and discuss your needs with the wedding coordinator.
- Commit to attend and participate in our Premarital Workshop.
- Following the workshop, schedule a meeting with a Pastor to plan your ceremony and talk about your questions and concerns. An honorarium of $250 is customary for the pastor officiating your wedding.
We look forward to sharing this special time in your life as you begin a God-First marriage.
