"Terri was an absolute godsend!! She was able to rearrange her schedule so that we could be married in the middle of the week and the middle of the day! I told her about what the date symbolized to me and she made it happen! We were coming from out of town and I told her what my fiancé had visualized. She found the most beautiful location!!! We loved how she personalized our vows and our story. I highly recommend her!!!! 👰🏽🤵🏻👸🏽🤴🏻💍"

"We've known George and his wife, Kathy, for years. When we were getting married, we were so excited to ask George to be the officiant for our wedding. He's been married for 30+ years and has a beautiful family and ministry; we've always looked up to him that we couldn't imagine anyone else doing it. George and Kathy agreed to do premarital counseling also. They met with us both and guided us in setting a foundation for our marriage. George took time to get to know us and what was important to us for our wedding to design a wedding ceremony that was special for us and our family. He kept us smiling and laughing. We are so thankful to George and Kathy for helping to make our wedding a day of promises coming true! - Vince & Amber"

"My husband and I had an excellent experience with Alex. He created a ceremony draft based on what our thoughts were for our day. We sent our changes and even if we were not for sure how to incorporate something into our ceremony he assisted with doing so very well. He was very professional and personable and even said he would be our minister going forward... not just for our ceremony should we ever need him. We would highly recommend Alex for your ceremony and again we were so pleased with the way our ceremony was conducted. Thank you Alex."

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.
