- Wedding: September 2013
I hope I am posting this in the right place, just joined today.
I am getting married in a backyard type setting in September and I am having the hardest time finding an affordable officiant in Dupage County, IL.
It’s gotten to the point where we are thinking of just having the ceremony at the courthouse and the reception in the backyard later.
We have considered having a friend do it and getting him/her ordained online, but we were worried about how official this is. To add to that we decided we didn’t want to put that much pressure on someone on our wedding day.
So to make it all official we have been looking for retired judges or reverends that are part of a physical church.
My fiance is a foreigner on the extended STEM OPT, so I thought it would be best if everything was as official as possible. Especially since online minsters are a gray area in IL.
