The cost to attend your Marriage Encounter experience includes two nights lodging and five meals per couple. Differences in lodging and meal costs vary by venue and location.


We offer secure payment online at time of application using your credit/debit card or PayPal. Payment also can be made with offline registration and check.

Financial assistance may be available for those in need. If you would like to inquire about financial assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us prior to applying.


The all-inclusive lodging/meals cost per couple for each experience is refundable if you cancel on or before the deadline shown for each experience. Refund requests received for the all-inclusive lodging/meals cost per couple after the refund deadline date shown on each experience’s page cannot be accommodated.


On Sunday afternoon of your experience, you will have an opportunity to make a tax-deductible donation to Lutheran Marriage Encounter. Your contribution will enable us to continue this ministry, expand it, and provide the necessary funds to financially assist those couples who cannot afford the full amount for lodging and meals at our Marriage Encounter events. This contribution can be made by cash, credit/debit card, or current/post-dated check(s). Because Marriage Encounter does not receive outside funding, we rely on these contributions for Marriage Encounter to continue.


If you would like to give a Marriage Encounter experience to a special married husband and wife in honor of their wedding anniversary or another special occasion, you can do so online here – we thank you for helping make marriages happier!
