There is always the option of getting a friend ordained if that is legal by your state.

Have a friend get ordained. One of my fiance’s friends got ordained years ago for a friends wedding. We’re playing with the idea of having him do it, instead of our preacher. Why? Because he’s a friend and it’d mean a lot to both Fiance and him. I think for people who don’t have preachers, they should really explore this idea-though it might not be right for them.

Have a friend or family member get ordained.  My aunt is performing our ceremony because neither of us are religious and we wanted to have someone close to us perform it.  Especially if you aren’t a member of a church, it’s a good route to go to keep it personal.

Hi there,

I’m an independent wedding officiant / Celebrant based out of NJ + NY.  Most of my couples do find me on the internet (by googling wedding officiant [state]), but I also advertise – check out WeddingWire.com (I love that there are reviews) or TheKnot.com to see if there is an officiant listed in your area.  You can also check with the Celebrant Institute (where I was trained) to see if there are any Celebrants in your area – http://www.CelebrantInstitute.org

You can learn more about Celebrants and how we create wedding ceremonies on my website, http://www.Eclectic-Unions.com or by checking out some of my posts on WeddingbeePRO!

Call your city clerk and ask them if they have a list. That’s how we found ours! He is a retired preacher who just marries people now Smile

Ask the venue where your reception is being held; or whom ever is doing  your music.  They’ll know good people.  They certainly have heard alot of them!
