Church rates these days are really really costly! We've visited and asked the churches that we would want to have our wedding ceremony be conducted, and we're really surprised rates are from 20K-100K up! On the other hand, we did found churches near our vicinity that are around 6K-14K, yet the environment around is really not good (for us). So we thought what if we just have both the wedding ceremony and the reception all in one place? Like in a garden or on a beach? Some friends told us that it'll be more practical and will really be light on the budget. Now my question is, do priests allow this move? I've read some articles and I guess a lot of priests prefer couples to get married in the house of God (church). Its more Holy.
We do need lots of suggestions/comments/answers, so will do anticipate for an answer.
