Having a Family Member/Friend Officiate Your Wedding

Posted on July 26, 2015 at 12:55 AM

It can be tempting to ask a friend or family member to become ordained, and officiate a wedding. After all, you may likely have known them for a long time, and feel that they are the best fit for you. I have in fact had couples that have made the decision not to have me officiate their wedding, due to the fact that the friend or family member will officiate the wedding free of charge. I am here to tell you that before you make this decision, carefully weigh out this decision.

This is the most important day of your life. A seasoned officiant knows the ins and outs of advising you on the logistics of your rehearsal and ceremony as well as the design of the text and the ritual itself. The experienced officiant can be a wealth of information and ideas to help you create the ceremony that is perfect for you. They know what works, and what doesn't. Typically officiants like myself have a library of different ceremonies, readings, and specific extra touches to the ceremony that a friend or family member does not have. Furthermore, officiants like myself have had experience with those little mishaps that do in fact happen at times, and know how to roll with it.

 

If you are wanting a friend or family member to officiate, make sure that they have done their homework, and perhaps even sought out someone like myself to coach them on officiating what very well may be-the first wedding/ biggest speech of their life that they will ever give.

I must show some thanks to this writer just for bailing me out of this particular condition. Just after scouting through the online world and obtaining recommendations which were not productive, I believed my entire life was done.

I needed to put you one little bit of observation so as to give thanks over again for those pretty things you've contributed above. This is shockingly generous of people like you to offer freely all most of us would have sold as an electronic book to help with making some money for themselves, most notably considering the fact that you might well have done it if you ever considered necessary. These principles also worked like the great way to know that other people have the identical interest much like mine to find out a good deal more pertaining to this problem. I am sure there are several more fun instances ahead for folks who read your blog post.
