Well ours is my grandmother but I thought maybe there were websites you could look this up or inquire at local churches and what not?

Do you have a close friend of family member that fits your description? Pretty much anyone can get ordained online and that is good enough for the state of CA.  My husband has preformed 3 weddings for friends and he is online ordained!

We really looked for the cheapest price for an officiant.  We were having a pretty simple, short ceremony so I really couldn’t justifying spending $400+ (which seemed to be the average price in So Cal) for someone to speak for at most 15 minutes (I think it ended up being under 10 minutes total). We called her up, set up a meeting, and booked her then, we didn’t meet with anyone else.

My brother is doing ours. But apparently he told my mom yesterday that he wished he hadn’t agreed. My mom think he’s embarassed about doing it in front of our family, because he didn’t feel weird about it at his friends’ wedding. I get what he’s saying — I’d much prefer not to get married with my family around (except for my mom), but I’m not worried about the friends part. I’ve got to admit that knowing he’s anxious about it is not allaying my anxiety at all. 

Have you thought about having a loved one become ordained? I mean, if it’s not your thing, that’s cool. But it is a thought, if you’re for it.
