You have decided to marry – you have a venue and a date, and plan to have a Justice of the Peace marry you. Now you have to find the perfect JP. How do you do that?
  • Start early –as soon as you have booked the venue. Good JP’s, like popular venues, book early, often 12 months or more in advance.
·         Think about any criteria you might have – age, gender, experience.
·         Do a search -- and are useful for my area.
  • Check out web sites – is the web site informative, helpful, and does it give you a sense of the person who wrote it and his/her values?
  • Send a contact e-mail with a few questions – availability for the date and location of your ceremony as well as fees are helpful. Do you receive a prompt reply and are your questions answered?
  • Schedule a meeting/consultation, usually at the JP’s home – find out if there is going to be a fee associated with the meeting.
  • Meet with the JP – have a list of questions prepared.
  • Decide whether the JP is the perfect person to perform this most important service for you – is he/she someone you feel comfortable with, will the JP be a calming presence for you, and does he/she share your vision for your ceremony or is he/she willing to help you create one?
If you are interviewing more than one JP, make your decision and inform everyone as soon as possible.

Next blog – questions for the JP.

Blogging about my wedding is something that I have planed to do. My wife and I's wedding just concluded about two days ago and I still feel very overwhelmed. The thought of being married has not really come to my mind yet. There are a lot of feelings and emotions that I am experiencing at the same time. I just want to write them all down and share them with everyone. That is why I am planning to make my own blogging website.
