"A SAINT!!!! Thank you so much!!! I am laid up from an accident, and the forms for Utah Workers' Compensation medical releases need a notary. I am in no shape to be going to a bank or anywhere. Imagine my delight to find that there re notaries who make house calls! Cupid's Corner was the fastest to reply to my inquiry. He made it out that same day and kept me notified when rush hour traffic looked like it might cause a delay. He still made it in time. He was thorough, fast, polite, and even my cat liked him. Thank you for the rescue!!!!"

"Thank you for a beautiful ceremony. When we began selecting a minister for our ceremony I feared that it would fell impersonal since we had not known each other prior. However, you managed to feel like part of the family and made every effort to make the ceremony as unique as Tony and I are. Thanks for being such a special part of our day - Chantel and Tony Rickards"

He was on time(even though we were not) The ceremony was flawless, he worked in wording so we could have certain members of the family participate.

"Miguel Carrasco helped my spouse and myself with the ceremony, the way he handled all of the ceremonywas just beyond perfect! Besides the fact that we were his first wedding, and it was really nerve wrecking he did such an amazing job at having everyone's attention and the way he spoke to us was knowing that there is love there was great. Our vows he helped us with and was really helpful, because I was so nervous I eouldnt have known what to say! Thank you Miguel for being such an amazing wedding minister and making us feel comfortable and calm when you were giving the ceremony. Thanks to you I'm with the love of my life and I wouldnt change it for anything :) "

"She was on time and patient. The thing that I was most impressed about is, that she listened to what I wanted. She asked me about the story between my fiance' (now husband). She added in facts about our life and our friendship. She one of the most caring down to earth people I met that helped prepare me for my big day. She probably ended up staying after the wedding longer than she wanted and was patient while my guests congratulated me, waiting for us to sign the papers. I highly recommend Denise."

"Chris was on time, professional, friendly and made our ceremony come to life. He made sure we connected prior to the wedding day to go over the ceremony script and make sure everything was perfect. Also, he made sure we dotted our i's and crossed our t's with the marriage license by making sure it got signed appropriately (which seems like a small task but on a big day I would have totally forgotten). Thank you Chris for capturing everything we envisioned for our special day! "

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.
