Ceremony: 10 Questions to Ask Your Civil Officiant
Having a civil ceremony? Make sure to ask your officiant these key questions.

If you've decided to have a civil ceremony but aren't sure how to choose an officiant, here are nine questions you definitely want to ask.
Is the officiant available on your wedding date?
Can the officiant travel to your chosen wedding site?
If you don't have a site, can the officiant suggest one or provide a courthouse or meeting room?
Does the officiant charge a standard fee? Is the fee a donation?
How long has the officiant been performing weddings? Why does he/she do them?
Does the officiant have sample wording/ceremonies/readings to show you?
Will the officiant let you specify ceremony details such as music, readings, and vows? Can you include religious touches if desired?
Is the officiant available for a ceremony rehearsal?
Does the officiant make you comfortable? Does he or she seem genuinely interested in you as a couple? Be sure you like and respect your officiant -- and that the feeling is mutual.
Would the officiant (and his/her spouse) like to come to the reception and rehearsal dinner?
