Congratulations! You’ve just gotten engaged and you’re now planning the wedding of your dreams. Planning a wedding can be overwhelming and I definitely know what that feels like. Mapping out the day itself is a feat in itself but lemme tell you, ladies, the requirements are one hell of an adventure, as well.
The main goal is to get your Wedding License. This is crucial before you can say your I Do’s inside a church or on a beach or in court. Without this, you can’t move forward so I highly suggest that you prioritise these above everything else.

REQUIREMENTS FOR CHURCH WEDDING
|Requirements||Where to get||Important information||Cost|
|Marriage license||City Hall|
|Baptismal & Confirmation Certificate||Church where you were baptised/ confirmed.

|Pre Cana Interview||Church||Paolo and I are planning to get our pre cana at the Archbishop palace for P 1,500.00 for a half day session. We’ve been told that you can do it cheaper for the whole day, with other people and that Discovery Camp is another great option!|
|Marriage bans||Church closest to you||As soon as you book your church of choice, they will present wedding bans to you that you need to present to the church nearest to you. This is basically a PSA to everyone that you’re about to get married and if anyone has anything to say about it now they can do it now and not during the wedding.||P 150.00|
If there are any corrections, please feel free to let me know!
I hope this helps all us brides! <3
