Once you have decided on a wedding officiant, the next step is consulting with them to discuss your ceremony needs. Your officiant should offer this service to provide you and your future spouse with the opportunity to give input on the ceremony. You may be asked to consider readings, prayers, vows and other elements to make your ceremony personal and meaningful. Don't worry if you are unsure of your selections during the consultation. An experienced officiant will get to know you and make suggestions based on your feedback.
One of the most important considerations when choosing an officiant is your comfort level. You and your officiant will partner together to create the ceremony of your dreams. Make the most of your consultation by getting to know your officiant and letting your officiant get to know both of you.
Keep in mind that an excellent officiant will work with you in the time leading up to your wedding day to make any changes you desire to your ceremony. The consultation is only the beginning of the partnership you will share with your officiant. Your wedding day is a celebration and the right officiant who creates the perfect ceremony for you will set the tone for your entire event!
For me, the consultation is key. It's very gratifying to create the right ceremony for the right couple. I love meeting the people who I will officiate for and am so happy to hear each love story!
