Booking your Wedding Officiant

10 Months Before your Wedding: Booking your Wedding Officiant

Among all the little but essential things that you have to think of for your wedding day, you should never forget about the officiant. One of the most important things a bride and groom should do is choosing their officiant.

Many times the bride and groom forget about choosing an officiant, but it is imperative to select your officiant as early as possible. The reason why you should look for an officiant early before the wedding begins is that you need to look for the right person.

Choosing the Best

Your wedding is going to be the better part of your day while the reception will be your best part. The words that will be said at your reception are the words you are going to remember for a long time. You should choose wisely who is going to say these words. Always ensure that they are reliable and someone who has some experience in officiating weddings.

Book Early

Many officiants are always booked very early. This is why you should book yours in advance too. You can do this one year or 10 months to your wedding. This will allow you to interview them and pick the best among the ones you interviewed.

Consider the Credentials

Most bride and grooms always love to have their closest family members officiate their wedding. This is also an excellent idea, but you should ensure that the person you choose has an experience officiating weddings.

The reason why professional officiants are hired is that they have had to officiate many ceremonies. Their experience makes them the best in what they do since they are well aware of what should be said and what should not be said.

There is a Difference Between an Officiant and a Minister

A minister, pastor, a priest, a reverend are all ordained professionals who have gained their credentials from a specific denomination. Their credentials may come from a seminary, college, or church. Most of them have or have had a church where they have held such ceremonies and officiated them.

Most of them have had churches where they have performed their various duties of being spiritual leaders. With their experience, they can give you a ceremony that is right for you and your partner.

An officiant, on the other hand, is someone who has received some training from an online company on the art of performing a wedding ceremony. There are many schools that train officiants with a very good curriculum to match up to their titles.

Do Thorough Research

Before deciding to hire a particular officiant, you should do thorough research.You need to ask some questions about things that you are not sure of. Your ceremony needs to be in the hands of someone honest and trustworthy. Furthermore, there are state to state rules on the people allowed to marry you, so make sure you check all these details before deciding on a particular officiant.
