Your wedding day is a momentous day that you will treasure for years to come. A ceremony is scared and sentimental so it is only natural to be picky when it comes to choosing your celebrant. If you’re looking for someone professional that is well-versed and experienced on officiating wedding ceremonies, then below are some things you should consider before you seal the deal.
Many people equate experience in terms of the number of years someone has been successfully doing something. In many cases, this may be true but there are celebrants who have been serving the industry for quite some time and yet are lacking on many things. A good celebrant should be able to give you a personalized ceremony that reflects you as a couple in order for your wedding to be truly meaningful.
List down the personality traits you want your celebrant to have. Does he/she have to be committed, younger, and open-minded? Do you prefer a male or female celebration? Or do you want to go with any middle-aged and religious person regardless of gender? Discuss with your partner and listen to your gut feeling.
The way your celebrant communicates with you and your fiancé is also another important factor to consider. Observe how well he/she brings themselves, their confidence, and the ability to make eye contact with you. If they cannot meet all those three things, then you may have to proceed to your next potential celebrant candidate.
Some wedding celebrants are fully-booked on some days which means they may choose to officiate, say, three different ceremonies in a day. Do you want to take the chance of choosing a celebrant that has other commitments on your special day? If not, then you need to look for one that only accepts one ceremony booking a day.
Even if your celebrant is excellent at communicating with you, it won’t matter if you don’t feel comfortable with them. If you don’t feel a good vibe from your celebrant, then it probably means that he/she is not the right one for your ceremony.
