I’m pretty sure it will be nearly impossible to keep this from your future officiant. Would your family be supportive if you married now? Maybe they will agree with your reasoning and agree to a beautiful wedding/vow renewal later.

Ministers are required by their vows to keep your secrets. You can tell your story to a minister and they will not/cannot share with anyone else…they may not agree to do the marriage but i bet they will.

  • Wedding: October 2010

You’ll have to tell your officiant, because part of their job is to make sure that your wedding is legal. That being said, many officiants understand that people may need to get married for legal reasons prior to their wedding.  Not all wedding officiants are ministers or bound to keep your secret, but most are good people who will.

My fiance and I are getting married next October, but will be having a “signing paperwork” ceremony, with the same officiant who is performing our wedding, in January.  We are keeping it a secret, and our officiant had no problem with it.
