Hi all!! FH and I are scheduled to meet with two potential officiants over the next couple days. and we have NO IDEA what questions to ask. We've been going with our gut as far as hiring vendors so far and going with the people that "feel right". Any tips??
Fortunately for me, one of my best friends is going to be our officiant, but I would definitely go with your gut. See what their body language, personality, and delivery are like. You guys should feel comfortable around this person. Are you going to be doing your own vows, or will the officiant read them for you. Do you want the officiant to be funny, religious, short & to the point? Ask about traditional things, like asking, "Who gives this woman?", ect. Do you want him or her to tell a short story about your relationship? I would ask if they conduct the whole show, or will you and your FH have input in how they conduct the ceremony. Think about weddings you've attended, been a part of, or even seen on TV or movies... I hope this helps. Best of Luck Katie!
