Attention Couples: Want an Awesome Ceremony? Schedule regular meetings and work closely with your officiant!
Published: Monday, Nov. 18th, 2019
Hey Couples: whether you are hiring a professional officiant, or asking a friend or family member to officiate your wedding, regular communication is critical. Your officiant’s job is to lead the ceremony, and the better you communicate with him or her, the more powerful and memorable your ceremony will be!
In practical terms, this means that a certain amount of communication between the couple and the officiant should be scheduled right from the beginning. Regardless of who you pick, make sure they are committed to regular communication. Make sure they understand their role -- which is helping to translate your vision into words.
