We know, this may be your first wedding so even just securing the Officiant can be confusing. Here is a quick reference explaining the process of securing the wedding Officiant.

What to Expect

The ceremony is the start and the reason for your celebration and the officiant is the one who sets the stage for your big event. To achieve this, selecting the right officiant is crucial. You have provided your guests the best service and planned every last detail. Therefore, the officiant should not be the cheapest but the most polished to enhance and set the stage for celebrating your special day.

Questions To Ask When Search For An Officiant

Choosing the officiant for your ceremony is one of the most important decisions of your wedding day.  Yet, many times it gets lost in the excitement of planning their wedding. You want your ceremony to be memorable and meaningful, so it’s important to find the right person for you!

Tips For Choosing Your Officiant

Writing your own vows adds a personal touch to your ceremony. However, if writing your own vows are not for you there is no shame in using standard vows. Standard vows were written by famous, romantic and poetic individuals and have been used for years by many couples. We provide vows in our manual to each of our couples, so they can make the choice of writing their own vows or not. We have also varied the vows from traditional to contemporary, religious to civil.
