Your wedding officiant is very important, not only to legitimize your union, but set the right tone for your entire wedding ceremony. With that in mind you need a wedding officiant that understands your relationship what you are looking for in your ceremony and your vows. The best wedding officiants will have a personality that fits your taste. They should also have chemistry with your fiancé. At the end of the day your wedding officiant has to be able to relate to everyone involved.
A wedding officiant should also be good with people, an excellent public speaker and is in line with your spiritual beliefs. They have to be able to address the needs of both you and your spouse. This process is easier if you are on the same page with the little details. You will need to think about the type of ceremony you want. If you are not highly religious you will probably want a civil or a non-denominational officiant. If you are very religious you may want to consider a priest, a rabbi etc. Wedding officiants can also create unique interfaith or intercultural ceremonies based on your specific input. During the first meeting with an officiant, start by asking questions about his/her approach to the service and what the ceremony will entail. Whether there will be a speech or a sermon, and if input from the couple is acceptable, be sure to ask questions such as can we write our own vows, can others participate etc.
