"I don't even have the words to express the gratitude I have for this man! From the very start he was so easy to work with and helpful. After my Fiance proposed, we decided we didn't want to wait too long to get married because his mother was sick and we wanted her to be there so we planned our wedding for September. Well a few weeks ago, my Fiance's mother took a turn for the worse and it seemed she didn't have much time left with us, so I reached out to Norm on a Tuesday and he was there that Saturday to marry us in the most beautiful backyard wedding that was planned in three days that has ever taken place! He sat with my mother-in-law and father-in-law for about an hour while I was getting ready and got to know them and they quickly formed a bond. During the ceremony, Norm said some amazing and unexpected kind words for my mother-in-law and it made our ceremony much more special and memorable. We lost our mother a week and a half ago and in her last days, she would always talk about the most beautiful wedding she has ever been to and how awesome Norm was. We held her funeral this past Friday and my heart wept when I saw Norm walk through the door to pay respects to my beautiful mother. We are still having our Wedding in September at the Highland Manor because my MIL helped plan and contribute so much to it and it's what she wanted. I know she will be there with us and I look forward to having the pleasure of Norm being a part of our big day again!"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.
