Of­fi­ciant

Milwaukee Weddings - - The Ultimate Wedding Planning Guide -

There’s a lot that goes into a wed­ding (as these pages ev­i­dence). But re­mem­ber, be­tween choos­ing the dress, the venue and the DJ, the en­tire day is built around the cer­e­mony. Make sure the per­son you choose to lead you to “you may kiss the bride” is a per­fect match.

What’s the dif­fer­ence be­tween a min­is­ter and a wed­ding of­fi­ciant? A min­is­ter (also some­times called a rev­erend, pas­tor, preacher, priest, etc.) is some­one who stud­ied the­ol­ogy at a sem­i­nary, church or reli­gious-af­fil­i­ated col­lege and is or­dained in a spe­cific faith de­nom­i­na­tion. On the other hand, an of­fi­ciant can be some­one who has com­pleted a course of study from an on­line com­pany or col­lege for the sole pur­pose of per­form­ing wed­dings. The lat­ter op­tion can be a good choice for cou­ples who are not reli­gious or who come from two dif­fer­ent reli­gious back­grounds.
