Your Wedding at Prestonwood Baptist Church
Pastor Graham and the staff of Prestonwood Baptist Church wish to extend assistance to you so your wedding ceremony will be a beautiful and memorable event. Care is taken to ensure that individuals are prepared spiritually and practically for their marriage. Believing that God has ordained marriage and that every wedding performed at Prestonwood Baptist Church should be Christ-honoring, the following policies have been established with regard to weddings performed at Prestonwood.
All weddings are scheduled through the Director of Weddings. Weddings are to be scheduled at least two months in advance. The Director of Weddings will confirm the exact date when the Prestonwood pastor or minister has agreed to officiate at the wedding.
The bride, groom, or their parents may schedule the Chapel up to twelve months in advance. Non-members are permitted to schedule the Chapel up to nine months in advance. To qualify for booking the facilities as a member, you must have been on the church roll for a minimum of three months. The bride, groom, or their parents may book the facilities.
Due to seasonal demands on the church facilities, wedding rehearsals, wedding ceremonies, or wedding receptions will not be scheduled on the following holidays: Easter weekend, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day weekend, Thanksgiving weekend, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day (and the day after Christmas), New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day. Wedding ceremonies and wedding rehearsals will not be scheduled on Sundays or at times that will conflict with church services or special church events.
While weddings are joyous celebrations, they are also worshipful and sacred. The staff of Prestonwood requests that the bride and wedding party select attire that is appropriate and tasteful for the wedding rehearsal and wedding ceremony. All parties involved in the wedding, including vendors and guests, should abide by the guidelines pertaining to conduct outlined in these policies.
Alcoholic beverages of any kind are not allowed anywhere on the church property, including parking lots, dressing rooms, etc. Any member(s) of the wedding party found to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be removed from the church property. Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the church building, including restrooms and dressing rooms.
