Ceremony Planning



When it comes to working with an officiant, it's crucial that both you and the officiant have a clear understanding of what you want to take place before, during, and after your wedding.

You probably have alot of the details of your ceremony and reception already planned out, at least in your heads! However, to make sure some important element doesn't get forgotten, and so that your ceremony is everything you want it to be, communication between you and your officiant is best written down so that no detail falls through the cracks and everybody's on the same page!


With that in mind, I have developed several ceremony planning worksheets for the various ceremonies I perform. It would be helpful if you were to fill out the one that's appropriate for your ceremony, and have it available at our first meeting. Don't worry if it's not complete — you may not have made all of the decisions yet. Our initial discussion may actually help you nail down some of the details that you're still working on!
