The first step in scheduling a Wedding Service at Madison Street United Methodist Church is to contact the MSUMC Wedding Coordinator. Upon initial contact with the MSUMC Wedding Coordinator, a date for use of the church facilities can be tentatively reserved.
Once the Inquiry Meeting/Initial Consultation with the MSUMC Wedding Coordinator has been accomplished and the non-refundable deposit has been made, the wedding date will be officially scheduled. This should be done at least 30 days, but not more than 12 months, prior to the wedding.
Due to the Church’s worship schedule during certain Liturgical seasons, reservations for weddings may not be considered. Those possible instances will be at the discretion of the pastor(s). If wedding services are considered in those instances, the options for wedding flowers/decorations may be limited. Those times could include, but are not limited to, Holy Week (the weekend of Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday), the seasons of Advent and Christmas (beginning with Thanksgiving, and lasting through Epiphany), and the weekend of the Tennessee Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.
You will also need to schedule meetings with the other church staff who will be leading the Wedding Service, and the church Wedding Coordinator will assist you in timing and contact information for that.
