The Fonda Reformed Church Wedding Agreement

We are excited you have considered the Fonda Reformed Church for your blessed wedding day. We realize that as a couple planning a wedding, you have many details to think about and coordinate. You are not only preparing for a wedding ceremony but also a life of marriage. To make planning easier for you, the following agreement lets you know what you can expect from us as well as some things we are asking of you. We will provide you with a completed copy of the agreement for your reference once signed. If you have more questions, please ask.

1. A wedding in the context of a Christian church should be special by acknowledging God and requesting His blessings and guidance sought in the marriage. The minister of the church will provide the services of pre-marital counseling, conducting the wedding rehearsal, and wedding service. If an outside minister is your desire, our current minister must approve your choice. Please provide a contact name and phone number.

2. Music for the service should reflect the joy and dignity of the occasion. Our current minister must approve the music. The wedding couple is encouraged to employ musicians of their choice and/or provide pre-recorded music selections. If any audio-visuals are required for the ceremony, the church offers an Audio Visual technician who would be present at the rehearsal and wedding ceremony. Our technician will be responsible for microphones, sound system, and any audio/visual needs the church can provide. Upon request and if available, a DVD of the wedding ceremony is optional.

3. Decorating of sanctuary is acceptable during the rehearsal time. Please respect the sanctuary and use only non-damaging adhesives and decorations. Our current minister must approve all decorating plans for the service.

4. No smoking allowed in any part of the church or on the church property, including the parking lot and sidewalks. Please inform your wedding guests of this guideline.

5. No alcoholic beverages allowed on church property for any purpose, at any time, including a toast to the bride and groom.

6. No confetti, rice, birdseed or other material thrown in the church building or on the church grounds. Wedding bubbles are acceptable. Please inform your wedding guests of this guideline.

7. The use of our kitchen and Fellowship Hall are available for the reception. The church’s tables and chairs may be used for the reception; however, the wedding couple is to make sure someone is responsible for the setting up and taking down of the tables and chairs, as well as cleaning up after yourselves. Please leave kitchen and Fellowship Hall as found.

8. The wedding couple is responsible for the actions of their family and guests while they are on church property. To insure compliance with all of this agreement, a $200 security deposit is required to the church, along with this signed contract. The security deposit would reimburse the church for any damage, or the custodian for any extraordinary clean-up costs. The wedding couple will be responsible for any damages and excess clean up not covered by the security deposit. Upon inspection by the custodian and if no damages or extraordinary clean-up costs are necessary, the security deposit shall be returned.

9. At least two weeks before the wedding date, all fees for church services requested are due.
