Do you know how to choose your wedding officiant?
Saying “I Do” is a huge moment in everyone’s life. The magic of these two words, their power, their meaning, the beauty of everything surrounding you on this special moment – they will all come together to create an amazing memory.
Of course, every detail matters when it comes to your wedding ceremony – but your officiant is one of the absolute essentials to consider. How to choose your wedding officiant, more exactly? Here are some tips you might want to keep in mind.
What type of ceremony do you want? If you want to have a religious ceremony, your officiant will have to be religious as well – but he/she does not always have to pertain to your specific congregation (depending on your faith, congregation, and so on).
If you want to have a civil ceremony only, you can be married by an ordained officiant, or you can ask a friend to get ordained. Remember, if you settle for the latter option, you will have to make sure you follow all the necessary legal steps to make this legit and valid.
It is extremely important that you are 100% compatible with your officiant. In fact, the last thing you want is an officiant who doesn’t believe in the same things as you do – and even worse, who starts talking about them during the ceremony! Have face-to-face meetings with your officiant and be sure to ask any kind of questions you may have.
