Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Let Ward Church support you on this special day in a God-honoring marriage that will last a lifetime.
Christians appropriately come to the marriage service in a spirit of devotion and commitment. We consider preparation for marriage a very important part of Christian service to the congregation and community.
When you have your wedding at Ward Church, your initial contact will be with the Wedding Coordinator who will assist you in the scheduling, confirming your wedding date, and assigning and coordinating the Pastor, Wedding Hostess, Organist, Custodian and Sound Technician. .
A Wedding Hostess will be assigned to all weddings at Ward Church. The Wedding Hostess will be on-site for your rehearsal and ceremony. She will act as director of both days and guide the wedding party, family, and friends in where they need to be at all necessary times of each day.
Special Note: for the wedding day, you will need to assign a friend or family member not involved in the wedding to act as “runner” with your hostess to help facilitate her in ensuring a smooth flow in your wedding program.
The hostess will not be the contact for deliveries and set up by florists. The couple will be responsible in setting up these vendors and making sure they know when to arrive at the church at the instructed time.
It is the responsibility of the bride and groom to provide a program and work with the Pastor on a ceremony, but the Wedding Coordinator will be happy to provide suggestions and website resources on Christian wedding ceremonies. We look forward to helping you have a beautiful and blessed wedding day!
