Choosing Your Officiant Early Can Offset Arguments During Wedding Planning!

Can choosing your officiant early offset arguments during wedding planning?

How much time will you spend planning your wedding? 

A new study found that Americans spend 528 hours planning their wedding over the course of 11 months. Most couples said they were excited during the wedding planning process, but admitted they had around four arguments during that time. 

What were the flashpoints?

The list was pretty long, but deciding on the venue was the number one cause of disagreements, with other contentious subjects being catering and who to add to the guest list. 


Do we really need to invite your podiatrist? 

Some couples managed to keep the peace. Around a quarter of the couples that were surveyed said that they didn’t have a single argument while planning their wedding.  

With all the time you’re going to spend on wedding planning, the sooner you choose your officiant, the more time you will have to dedicate to on the other elements of the ceremony. 

Don’t forget, the officiant is  crucial to your wedding day, and is just as important as the rest of your wedding party. After all, they’re the one running the show! The officiant puts a great deal of effort into creating  a meaningful, once-in-a-lifetime  ceremony that sets the tone for the rest of the Big Day (and forever after), so it’s crucial to not only show your sincere appreciation for their efforts, but to provide them with the best resources and tools possible
