"Deedra responded to my initial message to her within 10 minutes. That was a huge stress reliever for me and my wife since our last 2 wedding officiants fell through. After 5 minutes on the phone with Deedra all our details were worked out and Vonda married me and my wife the next day! I totally recommend them to anybody that is planning on getting married!!!"

"My husband and I were so blessed and honored to be married by Pastor Rich. He truly ushered in the presenceof the Holy Spirit on our wedding day, and spoke truth and love into the beginning of our life together and the lives of our guests. Pastor Rich attended our rehearsal dinner and brought his beautiful wife Shari to the wedding. We felt a true connection to them, and felt ministered to by them almost immediately. Their love for each other, their definition of marriage, and their love of the Lord was a bright and shining example of the marriage that my husband and I have prayed for. He met with us before the wedding, was very responsive to texts and emails, and listened earnestly for the details of our vision for our wedding day. We are forever indebted to Rich and Shari for their presence in our lives, and we hope to maintain a relationship with them in the future that will foster our desire to have a marriage like theirs! ❤️"

"Matt performed our wedding almost 3 years ago and I couldn’t be more thankful that we had him do it. He was so encouraging towards my husband and I and brought so much peace of mind knowing that at the end of the day if everything else went crazy we were still getting married and he was going to make sure that went smooth. I would HIGHLY recomment him to perform any wedding ceremony!!"

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.
