I’m no expert in these things, but don’t mind taking a look at it if you want to send it through.

I think the fact that both you and your FI (and mom to boot) are happy with what you’ve put together, you need an officiant who is flexible enough to give you the ceremony you want. Can you find someone else?

Hmm… is he just offering his professional opinion, or is he unwilling to perform the ceremony as you’ve written it?

Maybe you could press him to be a little more specific… what parts does he think will be awkward? Looks fine to me!

I would ask him to be more specific, like daydreamwanderer mentioned….but at the end of the day, its your ceremony and I think you should do what you feels right to you.  Good luck!

If you’d like another proffesional officiant’s opinion, I’d be more than happy to take a look and offer some suggestions – you can email me at [email protected]

Some officiants may just not feel comfortable with reading straight from a script – I know when my couples give me specific details that they want, I often put it in my own words, to make sure I’m comfortable speaking and being up in front of everyone with the words I am saying.  Maybe you could see what suggestions your officiant would offer on the ceremony to make it “flow” better?

I wouldn’t expect anyone to memorize it either.  Our JP just read it off paper – no biggie.  I was the same way – I wanted something that was totally just us.  Good luck – i know how you feel about coordinators – I could say SO many things about mine.

Put it in a very official looking binder or book…  Done…  Prob solved.  🙂  So glad.  I’m sure you put tons of work into it!
