My FH and I are trying to find an officiant. Most ones we have considered want to do couples counseling and we don’t really want to go through all that bc our schedules are already so tight. Any suggestions?
My brother is going to be our wedding officiant! He’s getting ordained online through Universal Life Church. If you have a friend or family member who’s good at public speaking, that’s always an option.

I wouldn’t say we want a non religious minister. We both are Christians. We just don’t have the time to do 4-6 weeks of counseling. Unfortunately, I don’t have FB though lol

I like Rachel's idea then of having someone you know become ordained and do it!
As silly as it may seem, I do think most Christian officiants want to at the very least have a formal meeting with you before the wedding (not that it's for them to decide if you can marry, in my opinion). Maybe not 4-6 sessions but you may have to squeeze an hour out of your schedule somewhere to do that.
Our DJ is ordained we really clucked with him and seemed like a great fit. He owns live events out of Springfield mo. He will be bringing another person to do the djing since he will be busy. His service, photo booth, and DJ services was around 1000 and he has 100s of great reviews travels all over the state.
We are using the Weston Center. Reverend Weston is by far a great asset for us. He is always in contact with us and when I requested him on here for pricing he called me within a hour. If I need him for anything he is there and always replies to me emails. Plus he was rated top on here! Give him a shout see if he is a good fit for you guys. Tell him I said hi!
We are using Dennis Cox out of springfield. He owns Live Events Missouri. We are getting married in Westphalia about a 3 hr drive from Springfield and it was no issue at all. He's really funny and outgoing a great fit for us
