"Laura was our officiant at our wedding this past October and we couldn’t be more happy with our experience. My husband and I aren’t very traditional but some of our family members are and Laura made a beautiful blended ceremony where everyone could be happy. She met with us before hand, got to know us a bit, and went above and beyond her duties. She’s organized, punctual, and easy to talk to! We’re so blessed to have had her be apart of our wedding. Thank you, Laura!"

"Pastor was extremely gracious and courteous! I had to do everything last minute, and I am appreciative of how patient Pastor Matthew was with the "organized chaos" going on before the ceremony. There were many compliments of how well things went, and how beautiful the ceremony was! I would definitely recommend Pastor Matthew to anyone who needs a minister! And the Family Bible he provided is a beautiful keepsake! Thank you so much! God bless you!"

"Derrick is very professional, he responded to any questions quickly, hes friendly, he kept the music going an i would recommend him to anyone needing music services! He showed up early, he set up quickly an he got the people on the dance floor quickly! He drove clear into Topeka for our meeting an he didnt ask for anything else extra. Compared to other djs we heard from, he was by far the best person for our wedding day! All of my personal requests for my special day he did everything, it was perfect! He is amazingly priced, his work ethic was amazing an he even talked to people at the wedding! I would recommend him to anyone needing music at their events! I will be using his services for our next event. Hands down best man for the job. "

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.
