Don’t be late on your wedding date! Most Wedding Officiants will arrive approximately 20 – 30 minutes prior the agreed to time of the ceremony.

It is very important for Brides and Grooms to remember and understand that ‘ALL WEDDINGS MUST START ON TIME’ don’t leave family and friends waiting.

At times Brides (or Grooms) arrive more than 30 minutes past the agreed to ceremony start time; and in most cases without good reason, other than poor planning.

If one adds the ‘getting ready’ prior to the processional it can add to be a 45 minute delay!

This is not only unacceptable it is also very disrespectful to your guests – and if it is an outdoor hot day summer wedding it can be very uncomfortable.

Additionally, the Officiant has set aside a specific time for your wedding and more than likely has other weddings that day.

If the delay is excessive and the Officiant has other commitments he/she more than likely will have to leave.

Most Officiants (if possible) will return at a later time (at an additional cost).

That is however minor compared to simply being on time and not ruin the best day of your life!!

The simple solution? Plan to be be on time!!

P.S. Don’t blame your Officiant if he/she leaves due to excessive delays. He/she will always do his/her utmost to be of help but at times simply cannot stay due to other commitments!

A little planning goes a long way!
