My wedding is next month and I had every last thing booked min 11 months ago and everything payed within 6 months ago, tried not to depend on credit, so now we just wait for our big wedding day
Timeline goes for everything to book though you may find the one that will work to your best interest and your requests.
We luckily found one 6 months ahead of time and available reading the reviews to ensure he was the one and same characteristics as myself which worked out. I do hope you find yours to book that will make your day special.
I booked them fairly early. Someone said an officiant is someone you NEED to get married. If you want to find an officiant you love, I would book 1 year or more out especially with all covid postponements
I don't think there's any harm booking someone early as long as they don't mind. Your officiant is also arguably the most important vendor of all because without them you won't actually be able to get married. I wouldn't want to leave that until a few months before the wedding!
I booked ours before we booked anything else haha! Though it's a good friend of ours who is in ministry right now so we wanted to make sure he could legally perform it by our date! ... Once we booked the venue we confirmed the date with him.
If you have someone in mind I'd talk to them as soon as possible, with all the rebookings they'll be scheduled quite far in advance. You can get married in a home without a photographer you can't get married without an officiant.
It depends! My fiancé and I are getting married by a pastor from my church, and we’re over a year out and have secured him for our day. We also have religious counseling as apart of the marriage process, so for us over a year out is good. From what I’ve heard from friends that non-religious leaders may be more booked due to covid cancellations. I’d inquire now, and ask for their opinions. Its never too early to book any vendor. We booked everything else early because covid was causing vendors to be unavailable for our day, so after a few fell through we scrambled to find photography & floral.
Although Wedding Wire says to book 4-6 months before the wedding on the checklist/time line, Since there has been so many postponements I would start inquiring now - its a year out and dates between June - September fill up quick without the people who have had to postpone for two years now.
