Hello! I am having a crisis! My fiance and I are getting married in less than a month. We got a friend of ours ordained to do our ceremony through the Universal Life Church. Now, there is a slight chance that he will no longer be able to perform the ceremony so we need to have a back up!! We are wanting to get a different groomsman ordained just in case, but I completely forgot how long it took for us to get our other friend ordained. I’m not really sure what to do! Does anyone know how long it takes for someone to get ordained? Can we get it done in 3 weeks?

@sibens314: Fiance and I had this same thing. We’re looking at a JOP ceremony, and then whoever can do the actual ceremony.

Universal Life church or American Marriage Ministry or Open Ministry or one of the other online churches that ordains for free. The process only takes like 1 to 2 minutes.

I decided to check it out online. This site that I looked at…looks like an FAQ says that once one gets through with the training they can get the certificate immediately. I guess it depends on how much time one has to get throught with the training.
