"My wife and I had the true pleasure and real honor of having Ira Liss perform our marriage ceremony in Malibu, California in 2015. She is Greek Orthodox Christian and I come from a secular but spiritual background. Ira was especially good at respecting our families' varied beliefs, and he helped us convey exactly what we wanted to about our own beliefs and values, and what our marriage means to us as a newlywed couple. I strongly recommend Ira as a wedding officiant. He is very thoughtful, well spoken and he does a terrific job."

"We had Lisa officiate our wedding this past summer and could not be happier with the experience. She was truly a pleasure to work with. She had a positive, friendly and warm way about her that we loved. She was extremely flexible with helping us design our ceremony. She provided guidance and suggestions while leaving it open to us to personalize how we liked. She was always available to contact through email or phone for anything. On the day of the wedding, she was a calming presence and someone we couldn't be happier to have been apart of such an important event and day in our lives."

"The impact on our life that Joy has made is apparent to all we spend time with. We were looking for a wedding officiant and found a person we consider "Family" now. Her personal and knowledgeable insights to merging two into one, helps us daily. We have reached levels of intimacy and understanding that were unknown to us through the skills and classes lead by Joy. Her outlook is so much more than a wedding officiant is, but, what it should be! We LOVE her and could not imagine anyone else sharing the "before", "during", and "after" as we became Mr and Mrs Hampton."

"We loved having Carey be our wedding officiant! She gave us beautiful vows that truly gave our marriage meaning and depth. Just practicing our vows brought me to tears! She gave great creative ideas for our wedding ceremony that went smoothly and was personally felt from our family and friends. She coordinated our wedding and was professional and organized. She made the experience so special that our children were filled with heartfelt emotion! I highly recommend Carey as an officiant. "

"We couldn't have asked for a better officiant than Kristen Hepp for our 5/2/15 wedding. We went into the ceremony planning with no firm idea of what we wanted. After discussing options with Kristen, we landed on just the right ceremony. Kristin quickly got a feel for who we are as a couple, and captured just what we wanted the ceremony to be. It was so personal, that you would have thought we were lifetime friends. She incorporated readings that we chose and included our children and grandson in the ceremony. The ceremony was perfect. Kristen was delightful to work with and brought eloquence and a sense of humor to the day! We had many compliments from our guests that it was the best wedding they have ever been to, and Brian and I couldn't agree more. Thank You Kristen and Colorado Commitments for making our wedding day an event we will never forget! "

"Kris was such a fun wedding officiant to have at our wedding. She's very funny and keeps things laid back in a situation when people are normally stressed out. She was very adaptable to things changing last minute during our ceremony. She is very affordable and this was very helpful for us because we had some issues finding a minister at the last minute. She kept things running on schedule and was very helpful with the processional and recessional since we didn't really know what to do or in what order. A lot of our guests commented that she spoke very clearly and they could understand her during the ceremony. We would definitely recommend Kris to anyone. "

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to officiate a wedding?

The national average cost to hire a wedding officiant is $150-$200. Wedding officiant rates are affected by the date of the ceremony, the time of day, and how far the officiant has to travel. Some officiants may charge extra for additional ceremonies like unity candles or sand ceremonies, as well as the cost of the supplies. Many wedding officiants have higher rates for larger weddings and lower rates for smaller, more intimate ceremonies. Personalizing the ceremony means a lot to some couples. Wedding officiants may have flat rates for standard ceremony templates, perhaps $100-$125, and charge more for a more customized experience, such as $150-$200. This allows the couple to collaborate with the wedding officiant as they are building a unique ceremony script. At the pre-wedding meeting, the officiant will ask whether the couple plans to write their own vows and how much input they have about the rest of the wording and flow of the ceremony. Additional planning meetings and extra communication can add up to a higher overall cost. If your venue has parking or other fees, you may need to pay on behalf of the officiant. Often wedding officiants can rent sound systems and wireless mics if you have an outdoor wedding location or venue that is not wired. These extras will also increase the overall cost.

What does it mean to officiate a wedding?

To officiate a wedding is to oversee the official union of two people in marriage. A wedding officiant is vested with the power to legitimize your union in the eyes of the court. An officiant also sets the tone for your ceremony, leading the couple through their vows and shaping the experience with the words they choose and the pace they set. An officiant may be based in a religious faith, may be an interfaith officiant, may be a secular officiant, or may be a friend or family member who has received ordination online.

You can have a traditional wedding officiated, or you can also have an officiant oversee a commitment ceremony, a vow renewal or an elopement. Once the wedding is complete, the officiant will ask you to sign the wedding certificate, and will then submit the document to the court on your behalf. This makes your marriage legal. Wedding officiants work with you no matter how simple or elaborate you would like your ceremony to be. The more involved wedding officiants are in the planning and customization of the ceremony, the more they will typically charge.

Who performs a wedding ceremony?

Anyone who is authorized by the court or a credible online source has the power to perform a wedding ceremony. Traditionally, wedding officiants were ordained members of a religious organization or civil officiants authorized by the court to legally marry two people. With the increasing customization and personalization of weddings, many couples are asking a friend or family member to become ordained and act as their wedding officiant. Wedding officiants can represent a wide range of backgrounds including Christian, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, nondenominational, interfaith or nonreligious. There is no legally required structure for a wedding ceremony, so couples can customize the language of the ceremony and their vows in any way they desire (though members of some religions may have specific requirements). To legally validate the marriage, the couple and the wedding officiant must sign a marriage certificate after the ceremony verifying the date and names of those involved. The wedding officiant should then submit the certificate to the court, which will in turn mail an official marriage certificate to the newly married couple.
