Choosing a Wedding Officiant

February 24, 2015

Congratulations!!  You have set your wedding date, purchased an armload of Bridal Magazines, and chosen your ceremony site.  Whether that site is a church, country club, bed and breakfast or on the beach or hotel venue, you are going to need someone to perform your ceremony.

The first thing you need to decide is to find the person that is right for you.  Someone who fits your personality, your beliefs and is willing to work with you in creating a ceremony that reflects your own unique love story.  Your ceremony sets the tone for the rest of your wedding day.  It’s the first impression your family and guests have of you as a married couple.  You want your families and guests to comment on how beautiful and heartfelt your ceremony was not just ho-hum and ordinary.

If possible always try to meet your officiate. If an in-person meeting is not possible because of distance, than spend some time with them on the phone.  Email should NEVER be the only way you communicate.  E-mail correspondence does not always convey to you the personality of the person – nor the quality of their voice, which is vitally important.

If you spend some time with choosing your officiate with some of the above qualities and guidelines, you are sure to have the ceremony of your dreams!

Finally, do you believe your wedding officiant will act as a trusted advisor capable of meeting your needs through listening and encouragement, assisting you with other resources, or providing direction if desired? This is your day – choosing the right wedding officiant will create a special memory for years to come.

"Christina was great to work with. Planning a Florida beach wedding from Indiana would have been very difficult for us. Christina put everything together including the location, the officiant and the photographer as well as offering great ideas and additions to our ceremony. Every email was answered right away and each change was accommodated. Our ceremony was EXACTLY what we wanted. I highly recommend Weddings By Christina!"   ~   Read More »
