Maybe you can call the church and ask how far ahead they typically recommend meeting with the officiant?

We orginally met with our officiant when we decided on them, but definitely haven’t sat down with them to discuss and confirm the specifics.  In our original meeting, we decided we’d meet in a few months to start solidifying readings/etc.

I wouldn’t freak out just yet, but I would set up a date to meet with them!

Ha – we haven’t even contacted anyone yet. I hope everyone isn’t booked yet…

Best Wishes!

We met with our priest in October. We need at least 6mos of prep with the Catholic church though, so it was important for us to meet him earlier.

But I had a co-worker who didn’t really meet with hers until the month or two before the wedding. I think she booked them earlier than that though. I would probably start looking sooner than later. If you are getting married outside of a church, you should ask your venue coordinator if there is anyone they would recommend for you.

It depends on your officiant.  Is it a priest at a church or an independant officiant?  Ours was independant and we got started about 2 months before because we needed to create our ceremony.  If it is a church, you might need to have premarital counseling, so you should check on that soon.

At least you know who it is! Our priest is being transferred to another parish. And we live 3,000 miles away. I might meet the priest the night before!
