5 Top Tips For Hiring the very best Wedding Officiant or Minister FOR THE Wedding Ceremony
You put off "your choice."
You've got so much planned for the big day - casual or formal, big or intimate - And something of the last details left to cope with is finding and choosing the person to marry you!
If you are being married outside of a specific religious tradition or if you don't have a minister, rabbi, priest or layperson to officiate your ceremony, you will have to find an Officiant or Minister in the "outside world."
As a Non-Denominational Wedding Officiant/Minister, I've worked with a huge selection of couples of most faiths and traditions to create and delivery personalized wedding ceremonies. Over the years, I have learned a lot of things working intimately with engaged couples sufficient reason for "tribes" on the marriage day.
I give you these 5 Top Ideas to Consider and Remember As You Interview And Select Your Officiant/Minister:
1) Is Your Officiant/Minister Passionate IN WHAT They Do? Creating and officiating a wedding ceremony is serious business. It also requires that a person be passionate, excited and at exactly the same time humble about doing this work. As you interview Officiants, consider the "passion" factor. Is the Officiant excited about the possibility of dealing with you? Do they provide ideas and ideas for your wedding ceremony during your initial conversation? Is it possible to see this person associated with you and your Sweetheart and will you get a feeling of how they'll "be' in front of an organization?
The last thing you need is really a boring "blah, blah, blah" marriage ceremony. The goal is to find an Officiant/Minister who's exhibits kindness, generosity and leadership ability.
2) Does The Officiant's Personality Resonate With You? There isn't right solution to "do" a ceremony. And there is absolutely no "wrong" way to execute a ceremony. It's all about what you want/desire as a couple. I invite one to consider an Officiant's personality is paramount to a robust and memorable marriage ceremony. You need to like one another and when the Officiant selects you and you also select the Officiant, this is even better because you are setting the stage for a mini-friendship making the procedure of working together that much more fun and enjoyable.
3) Design of Work - How Will Your Ceremony Be Created/Crafted? Every Officiant works differently. Consult with your Officiant how they create and deliver a ceremony. Will your ceremony will custom written? Will you be asked to pick from sample ceremonies? What is the amount of personalization and customization involved?
4) References ~ The very best Officiants put references on the websites with the first and last name of a couple. Additionally, there are wedding reviews sites offering additional reviews and recommendations. Don't hire an Officiant without reading and/or looking into references.

5) The Contract Factor ~ As you make your final decision, insure which you have a written agreement and/or contract with your Officiant. You need all terms and items of understanding to be outlined in your agreement including fee for services, attendance at rehearsal, time of marriage ceremony and services provided for you.
