Frequently Asked Questions

Please see below for an Inventory list and FAQs for The Trinity Chapel. Our hope is to help you not only enjoy but savor this time of engagement! Your wedding is a beautiful day you’ll remember for your whole life, and you want it to be perfect. The trouble is, there is SO much to do and so much information to take in. Planning it can feel overwhelming. Many couples find that once the initial excitement wears off, they feel stressed and strained with their spouse-to-be, your family, and their friends.


Can we give you one little piece of advice? Don't get over-inspired! With magazines, blogs, and Social media, you have more inspiration and resources than ever! It’s fun and exciting to dive into, but as you explore, try and remember what your wedding is truly about. Don’t get caught up in the details. Your wedding doesn't need handmade favors or elaborate centerpieces to be perfect. Choose a handful of ideas you love and let everything else go.


Kelly, one of our past brides says: “Take a step back and remember what is important—you are marrying the love of your life! The dresses, cake, flowers, food, and drinks will have no bearing on the success of your marriage, so don’t sweat it and always focus on keeping a realistic perspective.”


Marriage requires lots of decisions, logistics, and communication. That makes wedding planning great practice! Unfortunately, under the pressure and stress, it's easy to lose touch with the person you love most — your spouse-to-be. Yes, you’re planning a wedding. But more importantly, you’re starting a marriage! Remember that a wedding day is just that: a day. Your happiness in life doesn't depend on it being perfect.
