First Things First

Start your marriage off on the right foot before you even walk down the aisle!

First Things First offers premarital classes and events that will guide you to build a strong foundation in  your relationship.

Preparing for Marriage is a class taught at our office in beautiful downtown Chattanooga. We cover communication skills, how to have a good fight, developing your spending plan, passion and intimacy and much more! This class is offered once a month, so check it out and pick a date that works best for your schedule at FirstThings.org.

The Nearly-Wed Adventure is for those couples who can’t stand the thought of sitting in a classroom. We invite you to spend a day enjoying the great outdoors with your soon-to-be spouse, and learn the essentials of building a strong marriage that will stand the test of time. This event is so big, it’s only offered 3 times a year! So check it out at FirstThings.org today!

Plus, Georgia and Tennessee couples who join us for Preparing for Marriage or The Nearly-Wed Adventure will automatically qualify for a 60% discount on their marriage license. (Lucky YOU!)



1. What about your company or services makes you stand apart?

First Things First is a leading non-profit that aims to be a resource for relationships in every stage of life. We’ve offered pre-marital education for almost 20 years now, and we’ve seen HUGE results. In fact, out of 251 couples surveyed, 86% of couples who completed a premarital experience with us are still married with notably “high satisfaction” in their marriage.

2. How did you find your way into weddings?

Our headquarters are in Chattanooga, TN, and in 1997 our city saw a huge need for a resource that guided couples before and after marriage. Chattanooga’s divorce rate was one of the highest in the nation, and we knew something had to be done. So, First Things First was created and pre-marital education experiences and resources were developed. The outcome has been phenomenal not only in our city, but across the Southeast.

3. Describe the kind of couple who would have the most success working with you.

Couples who are on the path to have an AMAZING, MIND-BLOWING marriage, and who aim to be fans of their marriage and their spouse. And couples who think outside the box and aren’t afraid of being adventurous… we like to have fun!
