You can’t have a wedding without a wedding officiant. You want an officiant who can guide you through the biggest moment of your life. Yet the critical importance of the officiant is frequently overlooked. You can’t have a wedding without an officiant, and the wrong officiant can easily ruin your wedding. Your wedding officiant should share your vision of the wedding ceremony.
Some officiants will simply perform a standard ceremony. If you want to include your own touches and personalized vows, make sure your officiant is prepared and able to handle these variations. Many officiants will help you write your own vows and come up with creative ideas for the ceremony. That is why you should know what you want before hiring someone to officiate at your wedding. Any experienced officiant should be able to provide you with references. If not, he or she may not be for you.
Your wedding officiant should take the time to get to know you and your fiancé and actually contribute to your wedding magic. If you opt for a religious ceremony, talk to your clergy member to ensure that the ceremony will reflect your needs and vision. Some houses of worship have limitations.
