Tips for Hiring Your Wedding Officiant

Every single wedding needs to have an officiant. The wedding is not going to happen if you don’t have one. Deciding who your officiant is going to be is a big deal. There are factors you need to discuss with your significant other before choosing one. Hidden Creek has listed a couple of tips to consider.

 

Speak with Your Significant Other

Talk to your partner about religion. Is it important that you have an officiant that matches that religion? If so, that determines the type of officiant that you need to book. If you are not religious or it’s not a big deal for you, then you can look at other realms of people.

Ask your significant other if they want a family member or a friend to do it. This is very special too, especially if religion isn’t super important to you and you aren’t trying to follow traditions. Hiring a family friend or family member is a great idea. Dads, aunts, cousins, best friends, whatever your heart desires is possible. All they have to do is get ordained. This is a simple process as well. They can do it online for a super cheap price. 

Choosing an Officiant You Have a Connection With

If you choose someone who is very special to you, even if it is a priest that knows the two of you, it makes the ceremony that much more memorable. It adds a personal touch to the experience. The officiant can share a special story about you and your fiancé or how you two met. This makes the experience more comforting too. It’s not just straight into prayer, straight into tradition or into marriage. It gives you and your partner a minute to ease into the ceremony and relax.

What Appearance Are You Expecting?

This is a touchy subject, but an important one to address. The appearance of the officiant is crucial for your wedding pictures and theme. This is the person that will be right behind you in all of the ceremony photos. Make sure you address the dress code and hire someone that fits what you want for the image of your wedding pictures. Each officiant has an image that they are planning to appear in, so communicate with them about what you expect them to wear. 

Choose a Prominent Voice

Make sure that your officiant has a good prominent voice too. Hidden Creek does have an outdoor sound system and microphone, but having someone with a prominent voice is going to make people pay attention and be involved in the ceremony. Their voices should command a lot of attention.

Additional Information

Check the date availability and ask for their pricing. You don’t need to hire one until 3 to 4 months before the ceremony, but make sure you don’t wait any longer than that.  A company will have a set price and a church will ask for a donation. An estimate for a donation is about $400 for an officiant. For a bonus tip, when the officiant says to “kiss the bride,” have the officiant step to the side so they aren’t in the picture.

The Perks to Renting an Airbnb for Your Wedding Guests

A wedding is no small party. Family and friends from all over the country travel to celebrate with you. This is especially true if you have bridesmaids or groomsmen that live in different states. Hotels are excellent places for hosting overnight guests, and there are many options available near Hidden Creek. However, a trending alternative to hotels are Airbnbs. Approximately 10 to 15 minutes from the venue, you will find a variety of Airbnbs to rent. Not only are these places great for overnight guests, but there are many perks to renting an Airbnb a day before your wedding day.

 

 

Airbnb Features 

Many of the Airbnbs have similar features, so you can’t go wrong while deciding on one. They have pools in the backyard, outdoor grills, plenty of land, and even a view of the lake. One of our personal favorites is Rockwall Estate, which is owned by a very sweet family. It has all of the features mentioned above, and 6 acres of land! It’s the perfect setting for a small cookout the day before the wedding. 

Rehearsal Dinner

One of the perks to renting an Airbnb, instead of booking rooms at a hotel, is the privacy and space. The Airbnbs near Hidden Creek have plenty of space to host the rehearsal dinner right there. Then, you could have all the groomsmen stay the night.

Staying Overnight 

Having your groomsmen stay at the Airbnb the night before the wedding will avoid the stress of dealing with them if they are late. You won’t have to call them to ask where they are at, nor worry about one of them forgetting their tuxedo and needing to drive back. Have all the groomsmen bring everything they need to the Airbnb the night before. Now, they will all be at one place and their tuxes too. Another perk is that the groom and groomsmen will have a place to hangout on the wedding day, while the bride and bridesmaids get ready for the ceremony. The men don’t need to show up to the venue until two hours before the ceremony because they don’t take much time to get ready.

Relaxed Dinner

Sometimes, going to a fancy dinner before the big day can be nerve-racking. Enjoy a laid back barbecue with your family and friends instead, at the chill setting of the Airbnb. This can help alleviate some stress off your shoulders. Enjoy a dip in the pool, the views of the lake, and some fresh steak or ribs.

Hidden Creek: Where Your Dream Comes True

Whether you book a slot for your guests at a hotel or rent out an Airbnb, it’s always a good idea to have them at one place.

After Nikkita learned that she was diagnosed with breast cancer, her and her fiance, Fred, decided to postpone their wedding plans to put their focus on treatment of this ailing disease instead. Since then, Nikkita has remained active by establishing a Non-profit called Kindred Angels that provides gifts and support to other cancer fighters like herself. Now with a two year battle behind them, Hidden Creek, along with The Society of Wedding Professionals & other vendors, teamed up to grant the organization’s first well deserved wedding wish to Nikkita & Fred. Hidden Creek Events was the first venue Nikkita & Fred toured and we ended up being the best candidate for full-filling this well deserved couple’s vision. Hidden Creek even donated jewelry to compliment this joyous occasion.
