Wedding Officiants

In the process of planning your wedding, there are many factors to deal with, of which all are considered crucial to the success of the wedding. One of the biggest details, and is in fact, may be the crux of your ceremony, is the officiant. It is no surprise that people spend so much time selecting an officiant, because the person tasked with these duties holds an enormous amount of influence of the proceedings. The person you bestow these honors to must carry themselves with all the professionalism, dignity, and respect that they can muster. In the end, it is all up to your preference, so find a officiant that fits your style. Do not worry about finding one, because Tallahassee is full of various options relating to officiants. Follow our tips below, and your life will be much easier.

The first tip we have is to decide what sort of ceremony you plan on holding. If you are planning a secular ceremony, the first option you have is hiring a Justice of the Peace. A Justice of the Peace is a court official, you can obtain a list of these officials from your local county clerk's office, where you can also obtain your marriage license. It may help to consult an online wedding directory as they are great resources of information on all sorts of vendors, including information on pricing, reviews, bridal testimonials, pictures, videos, and more! You should search up and call the candidates that are closest to you and your wedding location in proximity.

The other secular option, which is a fast rising one in popularity, is choosing a friend or a relative to be your officiant for the wedding. It really is not surprising why it is becoming more frequent either. There really is no way for another person, especially a stranger, to gain that level of trust and comfort with you in such a short period of time before your wedding. It is worth it to pay a bit of caution if you decide to go down this route, because you need to make sure whoever choose for these duties is not going to make a completely inappropriate joke, or say an offhanded comment during the ceremony that offends you or your guests. Your friends or relatives can obtain a temporary status as an official from the local county clerk's office, or alternatively, can become officially ordained via the Universal Church of Life, but be certain that the state recognizes that as a legitimate option.

If you are going down the route of a religious ceremony, and do not have a long time family cleric or church, this is still pretty straightforward. Search Google or Bing for local houses of worship that best suit your denomination, or your specific religious beliefs. You will want to schedule an in person appointment with each cleric so you can scope out the location, share your ideas, get a feel for their personality, and inquire about the specific religious rules of that house of worship.

The key factor in deciding the right officiant is if their personality clicks with yours. If you feel as though you cannot trust this person, cannot connect this person, and will not be able to do either of those things in the amount of time given before your wedding, you should definitely not consider them as a potential officiant. This will actually be a lot easier than it seems, so do not let it worry you. Trust your instincts, and you will have no problems with your officiant.
