Ten Questions to Ask When Selecting a Wedding Officiant

Happy couple flanked by wedding officiants

If you are looking for a wedding officiant to serve at your wedding ceremony , ask yourself these ten important questions to assist you in your wedding planning search:

  1. Will you hold a religious or secular ceremony?
    If your ceremony is more spiritually centered, you might want to go with ordained clergy person of your same faith or denomination. If you have no religious or spiritual preferences, you can always contact officials such as justices of the peace, or others who are legally able to marry you in your state.
  2. Have you budgeted for a wedding officiant?
    Depending on whom you choose to perform the wedding ceremony, fees may apply. Just like with other wedding vendors, you should ask what the fees include and if you’re required to pay a deposit.
  3. Is experience an important factor in selecting a wedding officiant?

  7. Will you be required to attend premarital counseling?
    With some faiths, couples are required to participate in premarital counseling. This may be something you will have to consider if your heart is set on an officiant who follows this tradition.
  8. What happens if the officiant cancels at the last minute?
    Will your officiant have a selected backup or would you need to find an alternate yourselves? Ask the vendor about his or her cancellation/rescheduling policy to protect you in case of an unforeseen emergency.

  9. Will the officiant perform your ceremony if you are not married in his/her church?
    Is it mandatory that you’re married at their home church? If so, are there any exceptions to this rule?

  10. Will your wedding day affect the availability of certain officiants?
