"Carl did a wonderful job with our ceremony! He was very organized and made the process very simple! We met prior to the wedding and discussed how we wanted our ceremony. Carl had great ideas and was very helpful. He had each of us answer questions about each other and incorporated those questions into our ceremony making it very personal. I had so many compliments on the ceremony. He did a great job and I would recommend him to everyone! "

"Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU to Mary for your service. My husband and I are facing medical challenges, and we needed to have legal documentations notarized. Mary came to our home after most "normal" business hours to see us, and to attend to the matters at hand. She put us at ease, as all of this is very sad and stressful, and made us feel like we were dear old friends. She was very attentive and thorough to every detail of our documents. I would most certainly highly recommend Commerce Mobile Notary Service!! Thank you again Mary for your kindness and excellent service."

"I was planning my mom's 80th birthday party but I live out of state. Chris and her team helped me give my mom the best party she says she's ever had in her life. The theme was "Sassy and Classy" and the decorations and flow of the events was definitely that. Chris was so kind and attentive to my mom throughout the entire party. My mom had two back surgeries early in the year and she's still recovering. Chris went out of her way to make sure my mom didn't want for anything. Events by Chris made that day one of the best experiences for both me and my mom!!!! Thanks Chris!!!!!!!!"

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.
