Take this Quiz Before You Ask a Friend to Officiate Your Wedding

Think you've found the best wedding officiant for your ceremony?



You’ve decided to ask a close friend or relative to officiate your wedding ceremony to make the day feel intimate and personal…


Congratulations to you, and to them! 


Having a friend officiate is a great way to get your favorite people involved in the celebration, and to show them how much they mean to you as a couple. And being asked to officiate is sure to make your friend feel special too! It’s an incredible honor to be asked to marry someone. 


But remember! Officiating a wedding is a big responsibility, too, so it’s important to choose a friend who’s up to the task. 


Good wedding officiants have certain skills – like public speaking, staying calm under pressure, patience, organization, and follow-through – that come easily to some people, but not as easily to others. It’s important to keep these skills in mind when deciding who to ask to officiate! 


Take this short quiz to make sure your friend or relative is the best person for the role.
