SELECTING YOUR OFFICIANT
Many bridal couples are looking for creative alternatives to the traditional cookie-cutter ceremony. You deserve to have your wedding ceremony be like no other, and to develop a warm and personal relationship with your Officiant.
If the photographer or florist is a no-show, it’s unfortunate, but your special day can go on. If your Officiant doesn't show up — you've got BIG trouble.
When you speak with them, do they exude a calming presence? Does their energy fit in with what you are seeking for your ceremony?
Are they interested in hearing your story? Do they come across as enjoying or being passionate about performing weddings?
If you find yourself relating, smiling, or nodding in agreement as the Officiant speaks to you, that's a good sign that your wedding ceremony will be one that you will happily remember for many years as a result of their work.
Will he or she help you to craft a ceremony without restrictions--including all of your ideas? Does the Officiant view your wedding ceremony as the heart of your wedding day, or is it a job? Does the Officiant honor all spiritual beliefs (or lack thereof) and view their primary role as that of facilitator of your ceremony? Are you clear on how it all works, the booking procedure, how many meetings you will have together, timelines, etc? You will want an Officiant who explains things easily and clearly so there will be no confusion on your wedding day.
Do they seem to be an adventurous spirit and willing to try unconventional things?
Ask them if they have an example or two of creative touches they have worked into other ceremonies.
Officiant styles and items included in the fee will vary. This is another reason for thoroughly interviewing,
especially on matters that are important to the both of you.
At the end of the screening process ask yourself: Do I feel comfortable with this person?
Do I feel confident to hire their services?
If it feels right, then you've probably found the best fit for you.
