"Rev. Suzi was our choice from among 3 candidates for a small, intimate wedding in the home. She was so kind and helpful with out last minute details and provided lovely vows (alt. to standard) that went along beautifully with our own impromptu professions during the ceremony. Suzi is gentle and truly concerned that brides have a lovely, unstressed experience at this beautifully pivotal moment in their lives. Her husband attended with her and was quietly helpful the entire time, complementing Suzi's work and being supportive. While our wedding was on a short timeline and very informal, Rev. Suzi still provided a sense of beauty and ritual that made it special, encouraging us not to diminish our moment just because it was not a full-blown event. I would recommend Rev. Suzi without reservation."

"Pastor Brian Pounds did such an incredible job on my wedding. He personalized the ceremony to fit my husband and I. He knew I called him "Charlie Brown" so he added a football reference about Charlie Brown. Little did he know, my husband was the kicker for our high school football team. He has a very special gift in making your special day one to remember!!"

"It was good meeting with Jazz and allowing him to coordinate our wedding. He was very funny and personable during our initial meeting, and was mindful of how we wanted our ceremony to go. He arrived timely as well. We provided our written vows and he delivered them clearly and concisely and helped make our day meaningful and memorable. Thanks again!"

"Honestly I don't know where to begin. Bludbot Ministries has absolutely more than fulfilled my expectations for a wedding. They were super responsive and kept up-to-date with me everyday before the wedding. They were absolutely spectacular, from the way they included what I wanted to the way they incorporated God in everything that we did. I couldn't be more blessed to have found someone who loves God and fulfilled my every dream for a wedding. I however live in Ohio and we did are wedding at Wichita Mountains in OK and just the way they were so inviting to help me in everyway possible was a blessing. I had no idea what anything would be like until it was actually happening which was a total scare for me since it was our wedding, but they made sure every need was met in such a timely manner and I couldn't be more happy. Thank you so much Bludbot Ministries for everything you did for me and my family. I hope God blesses you through your journey through Christ and marrying happy couples!"

"Nancy officiated our wedding New Years Eve 2015. She was extremely patient and supportive during the preparation process. Her presentation as the officiant as well as her presence was calming and professional. I sought her and her husband out for my wedding after hearing her talk and him play and sing at a church service. They are a very dear couple and we have become friends through the process. I can't think of one single thing that could have been better. I feel so blessed that they agreed to do our wedding. We HIGHLY recommend Nancy for your wedding and be sure to consider her husband for the soloist. He is also extremely helpful as the A/V guy."

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.
