arrangements committee

 The arrangements committee, which should include a member from the marriage clearness committee, works with the couple to ensure that all desired legal requirements are met and that the marriage is accomplished with simplicity, dignity and reverence. A wedding reception may become part of this committee’s responsibility.

 The arrangements committee should know the local legal requirements for registration of marriages and be prepared to help the couple take responsibility for obtaining, filing, and mailing necessary forms. <See Appendix 6d>. The final responsibility of this committee is to ensure that a minute recording the marriage is prepared for the Monthly Meeting’s next Meeting for Business.
