The ceremony is the most important part of it all. The wedding officiant plays a significant role in creating the experience for a couple of reasons. Not only will an officiant make it all legal, they will help you incorporate special readings, unique vows and symbolic rituals. Most couples want to create a unique ceremony with all of the their special traditions. These tips should help you find a wedding officiant to create your unique experience.

Legal or Not


Some choose a legal marriage over a commitment ceremony because of tradition and the legal status that gives them certain legal rights. The law generally works to the benefit of married couples when it comes to property rights, medical decisions, rights to children and some tax matters. However, there can be certain factors related to college financial aid, social security benefits and other financial and personal reasons that could make a legal marriage less beneficial. For LGBT couples, there was a long battle for equality and to be recognized by law and community. The changes in laws related to same sex marriages created a large number of legal wedding ceremonies to meet the celebration of a victory. Whether you choose a legal marriage or a commitment ceremony is a personal choice based upon your unique relationship and situation. Regardless of whether you choose a legal ceremony or a commitment ceremony, your wedding officiant will be the director of the magical moment.

Doing it Differently


Most couples want something different. Never be afraid to step outside of the box. Imagine how you want your ceremony to be, and create that. A wedding officiant is key to helping you design your ceremony and direct the moments. If you want to create your own vows, a wedding officiant can usually help you with the process. There are special rituals that can be incorporated into your ceremony, such as a unity candle and a sand ceremony. The officiant will be the coordinator of all your customs and rituals. They will deliver special speeches and pause for readings. They will explain traditions to your guests in attendance and lead you through the rituals of your ceremony. Your officiant will make all the difference in your special moments.


A Wedding Officiant that Fits


Each couple has a unique vision that requires the perfect fit to make the moments flawless. It takes a unique officiant to integrate those meaningful rituals into your ceremony. Some couples previously eloped, and are seeking to create the wedding they never had. Some desire to recreate the magic of their wedding day in a vow renewal. Others want all the magic of a wedding day without the formality of a marriage license. Culture and orientation can affect the way a ceremony is performed. Wedding officiants are people with unique personalities, different levels of experience and different backgrounds that can affect your ceremony. It is important to interview your officiant to make sure their personality and ideas fit with yours. Your wedding ceremony will happen once. Do not trust the moment to just anyone.
