Are you working with a couple who is having a friend or family member officiate their wedding? Have you seen the problems this can cause?  Let Asked to Officiate help you, help your couple.

We know that wedding professionals end up getting multiple questions and are sometimes put in a tough spot when the friend or family member doesn’t know what to write for the ceremony, or how long it should be, or even how to lead the ceremony. We also know that in the past you may have seen the five-minute ceremony, had the friend or family member flake at the last minute, or watched a drunk uncle try to perform the wedding ceremony.

Our vision at Asked to Officiate is no bad wedding ceremonies, and thus we have taken what we have learned during our many years of officiating and created very effective, yet easy to use, products and services specifically developed for the couple asking a friend or family member and the person who is being asked.

What do we offer to help your couple?

Asked to Officiate offers the following products and services that will help your couple, whether they are starting from step one in the ceremony creation process, or are part way there and just need some extra assistance.

+ The Asked to Officiate Workbook – an easy to use 110-page ”instruction manual” that walks the couple and their chosen Officiant through the creation, and presentation, of a beautiful, meaningful, and personal ceremony. Covers everything from making it legal, to writing the ceremony, to ceremony presentation and logistics. The workbook even comes with over a hundred pre-written pieces that can be cut-out and used to produce the perfect ceremony.

+ Ceremony Writing Services – two levels of ceremony writing services in which we use our proven process to create a personalized, or even completely custom, wedding ceremony for your couple.
