- Wedding: November 2013
Hi Dallas brides! My fiance and I have decided to forgo a “traditional” wedding officiant and have a friend perform our wedding ceremony. I researched state and local laws, and basically it just says that you have to be ordained to perform a marriage in Texas. I called the County Clerk (Collin County) and they said that to sign the marriage ceritificate for us we just need an ordained officiant. I asked about the process of getting ordained online, and the woman just said that the officiant had to be ordained by a “legitimate” site but couldn’t give any examples.
Has anyone else had their officiant get ordained online? If so, what website did they use? Any tips?
