Why Hire a Professional Wedding Officiant
This is an exciting time in your life and you want your family and friends involved as much as possible! Since just about anyone can get ordained over the internet, you may be considering choosing someone close to you to perform your ceremony. Here a few reasons why you should consider a professional instead:
#1 Experience – Professional Officiants have knowledge and experience that only comes with time. They can write and ceremony that flows and perform it with ease and confidence. They help manage your day for you and your guests and handle any unforeseen circumstances that may come up; Making a less stressful day for you!
#2 Leadership – A professional will take the lead. They will be the point person at rehearsal to direct your bridal party, answer any questions and make sure everyone’s knows what to do and when. A wedding day can be chaotic and emotional, you will need someone you can rely on to confidently and camly guide everyone through, especially if you don’t have a coordinator.
#3 Personal, but Professional – A good Officiant will make your ceremony personal, but keep it professional. You will feel like you have more say in your ceremony without thinking you’re hurting family or friends feelings. They will perform your ceremony with emotion, but will not get emotional. Someone close to you may get a little too choked up or get caught up in the moment loosing the flow of the ceremony.
It’s important to get your friends and family involved in your ceremony! If they’re not in the bridal party, they can perform songs or readings, seat guests, or pass out programs. But mostly you want them to enjoy your special day too! Let the professionals take the lead ☺
