Luckily, my Uncle’s wife will be officiating our wedding (she’s a certified officiator, if that’s a phrase?).
Look to see if your state allows Notaries to legally marry people. If so, then you can pay for a friend who you’re close with to become a Notary and marry you. That was our first plan before my Uncle’s wife offered. I think it’s so much nicer to be married by someone you know, rather than looking in the yellow pages!

We did a Google search for nondenominational officiants in our area. After we got a few names, we checked out their reviews on wedding review sites, then contacted the best reviewed people for pricing. We met with the man who had the most reasonable pricing and was friendliest via email, and we clicked!

Inclusiveceremonies.com. I used the same one my sister used a few years ago. They write up the ceremony exactly the way you want it.

My future Brother-In-Law is getting ordained online to do our ceremony. I wrote our entire ceremony so all he has to do is read.

First I would recommend you start with type –
Religious or secular
Male or female
Want an Informal or Formal Officiant?
Ceremony – can you personalize or not?

We had a friend’s dad get ordained online through American Marriage Ministries. He had originally been a Justice of the Peace in Alaska, but now that we all live in TX, that wouldn’t work, so we had to get him officially ordained. It was free too 🙂

Ours came with e resort, and he was amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a better officiant.
