Getting ready for the Big Day (and all the days after that)
Once the big question has been popped (and assuming the answer is “yes”), a lot of details have to be worked out. Who is going to perform the ceremony? Where will it take place? What will we wear? How will we keep Uncle Steve in check? With all of this stuff to think about, it’s easy to miss the most important detail: Are we ready to be husband and wife?
At Riverview, we are excited about your wedding, but we are even more excited about your future marriage. That’s why we hope we are catching you early in the planning process. We have decades of experience helping couples navigate their engagement, wedding day, and first years of marriage. We offer pre-marriage counseling, marriage mentors (that will stick with you from your engagement through your first year of marriage), and wedding officiants. We primarily perform weddings and offer the use of our auditoriums for our members (as well as prospective members) because we want to be more than just a wedding chapel; we want to be part of helping you build a great marriage!
Here’s how the whole pre-marriage thing works at Riv:
Step one: Get in touch with us!
Click below to fill out a brief questionnaire (note that each of you need to fill out this questionnaire separately). This will help us learn a bit about you. You will also have a chance to request a specific Riverview Pastor or officiant (although due to scheduling, you may not be paired with the pastor you request), let us know what date you are thinking about, and whether you are interested in a Riv building.
Step two: We’ll get in touch with you!
Once we receive your info, we’ll reach out to you to set up a face to face interview. During this time (about an hour) we’ll walk through the Biblical purpose behind marriage, and help you become familiar with our pre-marriage class and mentoring process. We’ll also talk through the date, location, and officiant details for your wedding ceremony so we can best plan to accommodate your wedding day.
That’s it! If you have any questions, feel free to contact [email protected]. Otherwise, simply set aside a few moments with your future spouse, kick up your feet, and click that button up there to get started!
We have a Pre-Marriage Orientation scheduled for August 2019.
