SEATTLE, W.A., Jan. 1, 2019 -- American Marriage Ministries (AMM) is launching a new ordination package, called “Will You Marry Us?” that couples can purchase as a gift for a friend or family member that will be officiating their wedding. Building on the tradition of gifts for bridesmaids and groomsmen, the “Will You Marry Us?” gift package allows couples to share the excitement and honor with their officiant.
Asking friends and family to be bridesmaids and groomsmen is a huge part of the wedding experience, yet couples often forget that their officiant plays just as important a role in their wedding day and ceremony. Now, there’s a way to show their appreciation, with the “Will You Marry Us,” gift package.
Priced at just $95, this package includes the most robust ordination available, full credentials and documentation, training and writing tools, and everything else required to create the wedding ceremony of a lifetime.
By gifting the “Will You Marry Us,” gift package, couples empower their officiant to deliver a ceremony that people will be talking about for years to come.

Here’s how it works in three easy steps:
The couple goes to theamm.org/will-you-marry-us and purchases their “Will You Marry Us” Gift Package, which is shipped to them. Then they give it to their officiant (AMM can also send it directly to the officiant if that’s easier).
The officiant gets ordained online through theamm.org and enters his or her unique code that is included in the package. AMM sends the officiant their ordination documents, along with all required legal forms and instructions.
The officiant and couple can then use the tools and instructions included in the “Will You Marry Us” gift package to prepare and deliver a memorable and legal wedding ceremony anywhere in the USA.
