3 Things to Consider When Hiring Your Wedding Officiant

Posted · Add Comment

Every single detail can make a huge difference when planning the Big Day. The flowers, the music, the food – they are all important pieces of an unforgettable “puzzle” – and they should be carefully chosen as well.

For example, do you know what are the things to consider when hiring your wedding officiant? We have gathered some of them right below – so continue reading to find out more.


  • First and foremost, this is a person you should feel comfortable with. Your officiant should be versatile and flexible enough to allow you to personalize your own wedding, but they should also feel like a true mentor in the “art of getting married”.
  • Secondly, don’t forget that you will have to pay a fee (or a donation, if you want to have a religious wedding). Make sure you ask about the services covered in this fee (for example, will it cover just the wedding, or the counseling too?).
  • Thirdly, we do encourage you to check out the reviews left for your chosen officiant. Knowing what previous couples think of him/her will give you a much better idea on whether or not he/she is truly suitable for you.
  • Last, but definitely not least, remember to ask how many ceremonies the officiant will have to perform on the day of your wedding. The fewer of them there are, the more you will get out of your officiant, as he/she will be able to truly focus on you as a couple.
