What will my Officiant be wearing?

Fran Calhoon, Wedding Officiant
Have you given any thought to what your Officiant will be wearing? Since she/he will be in several of your photos, you might want to think about it! Are you having a religious ceremony? Then you’ll probably want your Officiant to wear a clerical robe (I personally give my couples a choice of black, pink, or light blue!) If it’s more of a secular service, then a nice dress or suit may be more appropriate. And on the beach? Something less formal, perhaps. This is one other thing you should discuss with your Officiant prior to your ceremony. It’s one of my questions to a couple when we meet – what would you like me to wear? I definitely want to present the appearance they were hoping for, and I also want to make sure I don’t clash with the wedding party! I know that a lot of couples spend a great deal of time picturing how the bridal party will look at the altar – colors, height, etc. Remember that your Officiant will be right in the middle, and he/she should blend well with everyone else 🙂 Happy Wedding Planning!
