Is A Meeting Necessary?

I am often asked whether a consultation (meeting) is necessary before the wedding. The simple answer is that no, it is not necessary. Officiants often arrive at a ceremony never having met the couple and always try to make their wedding beautiful.

But to have a truly special ceremony, meeting with your officiant is definitely advisable. The meeting allows us to get to know each other, to begin to plan your ceremony, and to answer any questions that you may have. Most importantly, it allows me to learn about you and the special aspects of your relationship. By doing that, I am able to personalize your ceremony, making it unique, meaningful, and memorable.

I consider the meeting fee of $50.00 the best money that you will spend on your wedding. You will be comfortable with the person who will be marrying you, you will have all your questions answered, and I will have learned something special about you. And besides, if after meeting with me you decide that I am not the correct person to perform your marriage, the fee is waived and there is no charge.You have no risk with the potential of great reward.

Next time -- what goes on at a meeting?
