Dave the pulpit man was wondering he was our officiant for our July 30th 2016 wedding. He hit every point and did it so beautifully. He did everything he wanted said and plus some he helped me with some of the planning and it turned out wonderfully. I had so many people tell me how wonderful he did and is the best officiant speech at a wedding they ever heard. Thanks so much Dave.

My husband and I hired Alice to be our wedding officiant this past July. She was so so wonderful! First off, she was extremely professional and took the time to get to know us via FaceTime because we lived in Chicago at the time we were planning our wedding in Maryland. She got right back to us with a draft of our ceremony and catered to our wishes of having a very secular ceremony. Upon moving back to MD, Alice came over to our home to meet us in person and prepare a little more for the big day. She arrived on time for the rehearsal the day before, as well as on the wedding day. She completed her duties of signing and sending in our wedding certificate as well. We would highly recommend Alice to any couple looking for a down to earth, loving, and spiritual person to marry them.

We had amazing experience with Diane Hirsh as the officiant for our wedding. Diane has that rare combination of a high professionalism and warm sincere approach. She guided us skillfully through the preparation process - drafting the vows and planning the day of, she arrived ahead of time prepared and looking great, efficiency and warmly performed the ceremony with beautiful smile and kind spirit. We couldn't have wished for a better officiant. Great memories of the day have been created and will stay with us forever! Thank you Diane!

Marjorie was the officiant at our wedding this past Friday. She was outstanding! She worked with us to make some changes to the ceremony and even included our two children in it. She responded to e-mails promptly. On the day of the wedding she was on time and performed a beautiful ceremony. We received a lot of compliments on how personal she made everything feel rather than being scripted. She was so friendly and easy to work with. I highly recommend Marjorie if you're looking for an officiant!

Minister Keaton was a wonderful officiant for our wedding. She arrived promptly and even helped us to finish some last minute setting up of a few items at our venue. The ceremony itself was beautiful and Minister Keaton offered a fantastic mix of beautiful vows to recite, emotional moments, and even a bit of humor to entertain us and our guests. We were so fortunate to have her at our wedding and many thanks are extended to her!

We can't imagine having anyone but Rev. Norma as the officiant for our wedding. She brought in such a beautiful light with her insights and originality. Our wedding ceremony was unique and exactly what we wanted. It was inspiring for the two of us ashould well as those who were in attendance (many who were moved to tears.) She helped to create an atmosphere of love and joy with her words, her energy and her presence.

It was very delightful to work with Pastor Dave and Pastor Patty. Pastor Dave gave us several options for the ceremony, from short to long which we really appreciated. He saved us tons of time by providing many reading options to choose from. We also enjoyed the private session that we had with both of them at their house to prepare us for our marriage. We are so grateful for their guidance and the time they invested to bring our commitment to life and we would strongly recommend them to anybody looking for an officiant/celebrant for their wedding celebration!

Denise was amazing! From the moment I received and excepted the quote, she was communicating very promptly. I wanted a private intimate ceremony at home, and Denise delivered the ceremony beautifully. I'm very thankful to have had Denise be our wedding officiant.

Rev. Kaehn was the most amazing officiant for our wedding! She went above and beyond, letting us insert our personal touches into the ceremony, was super responsiveness to all emails, great price, had great laughs with the groom & best man waiting for me, and was so special to start a prayer chain separate from our ceremony for my mother who is ill. She really made our wedding extra special!!

From the moment my husband and I met Tara, we knew we made the right choice for our Wedding Officiant. Her warm caring manner was perfect for us and she took the time to get to know us and a little about how we met during the consultation. We felt an instant connection with Tara. She was very punctual on the day of the ceremony and remained afterwards to take a few photos with my family. I highly recommend Tara as a Wedding Officiant and her fee was very reasonable.

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.
