Getting Married at Webster Gardens
We welcome those planning to unite in marriage. We pray that as you enter into marriage, you will prayerfully ask God to be present in your individual lives as well as in your relationship as a couple. You have chosen to be married in the Christian Church, and that means your wedding will be a worship service where the primary focus is on God.
Below you will find information to help you plan your wedding at Webster Gardens:
Marriage Works is a pre-marriage seminar required for couples who will be married at Webster Gardens or by one of the pastors. This workshop will help you grow your relationship with one another, and is held once a year in January. Both the bride and groom are required to attend. (If your wedding is scheduled to take place before the next January class, contact the church office at (314) 961-5275 to coordinate a special date for your Marriage Works class.)
REQUIREMENTS FOR A CHRISTIAN WEDDING:
- Request to reserve the dates and times for your rehearsal and wedding service via our online form.
- Contact the church office to schedule an appointment to meet with the Pastor, who is conducting your wedding, three months before your wedding date. Confirm that you will have completed the Marriage Works seminar before your wedding date.
- Complete the Wedding Information Form with all details about your wedding
- This form must be completed no later than one week prior to your scheduled meeting with your Site Coordinator (on-site weddings) or the Pastor (off-site weddings).

- If Webster Gardens is ordering the Wedding Programs, all information for these programs must be sent to the church office no later than one month before the wedding. There is an additional fee for printing the programs.
