Wedding Minister

Posted in Alternative Custom Weddings


The wedding minister that you select to perform your wedding ceremony is one of the most important decisions that you will make for your wedding day. After all, this is the person who will walk you through one of the most important ceremonies of your life. In today’s article we go over discussions that a professional wedding minister should have with every couple in order to ensure their ceremony is a success.

It is recommended that the wedding officiant sit down with both of you in preparation of the ceremony. Not only should he or she become familiar with the each of your personalities, but there is a lot of information that should be discussed. Perhaps the first topic for discussion is where the wedding will be held. This will tell the wedding minister a lot about the big day. Perhaps you are having an informal beach wedding, or maybe an intimate back yard wedding. Additionally, the minister will need to discuss what ceremony readings you will have. This is greatly determined by the nature of the ceremony as it relates to your religions. Some couples opt for a more traditional ceremony whereas others prefer a more customized ceremony more in tune with their personality and culture.

Furthermore, it is important that the wedding minister know how many people will be in the wedding party as well as any other wedding ideas that involve the ceremony. Will you have a unity candle in the ceremony, or will you include a unity sand ceremony? Will there be any special music or anyone speaking during the ceremony other than the officiant? Additionally the minister will need to know if he or she will supply your wedding vows or if you are writing your own vows.

There is a lot more to add to your wedding checklist other than selecting a wedding minister. Things such as the wedding flowers, dresses, table settings, etc. Just be sure that the minister you select has a “template” of sorts for the standard of wedding ceremonies, that he or she is available for a wedding rehearsal, and that your minister is easy to work with. The minister that you select to conduct your wedding ceremony must also be calming, reassuring, speak clearly, and must be confident in his or her delivery.
