Pre-Marital Retreat Overview

Retreat Description

The WinShape Pre-Marital Retreat is designed to help engaged couples and those considering engagement build a strong foundation for a successful Christian marriage.


  • A weekend away to focus on your relationship and reflect on what marriage preparation is all about 
  • The chance to connect with other couples in a similar season of life 
  • Clarity around the next steps in your relationship 
  • Strategies for communicating effectively, managing conflict well, and creating healthy boundaries 
  • Tips to have productive discussions regarding finances, family members, and intimacy in your relationship 


  • Our Marriage Prep pre-marital retreat is designed for couples who are seriously dating, considering engagement, engaged, or recently married within the last six months. Couples married longer than six months are encouraged to attend The First Five or Intimacy 101. 
  • Couples who are not yet married will be given separate lodging rooms. 
  • Each couple in attendance will receive a notarized premarital educational certificate. Bonus—some states give couples a discount on their marriage license when they present this certificate.

$340 per person (unmarried) or $620 per couple (married)
