8 Officiant Green Flags: How I Measure Up
Updated: Jul 13, 2021
finding the perfect officiant can seem daunting, my last post "8 Green Flags When Choosing an Officiant" hopefully left you with a few helpful tips to get you looking under the right rocks.
And now, here’s how I believe I measure up.
Laid Back and Down To Earth would be my dictionary definition. You are the coolest person I have ever met and I can’t wait to find out why!
I’m a pagan. I’ll just say it. I’m not a Christian. I’m not going to do a prayer or a Bible reading or communion. I’m happy to do a hand fasting or a unity ceremony or a reading from your favorite poet! I specialize in spiritual/pagan/wiccan and non-denominational ceremonies. My favorite are element based ceremonies and traditional celtic.
I’m gonna check on you, like...a lot. I’m gonna text you to see how the planning is going. I’m going to email you copies of your ceremony drafts. I’m going to make sure you know that I know that you know this thing is important to me.
Words are power to me and we all have words we want and words we can’t stand. If you prefer Universe to God or if Family is your F word I’m gonna make sure I know that and reflect it in your ceremony.
I like to chameleon. I think everyone should have a healthy dose of belly laughs and heartfelt tears during their ceremony. And I’m a huge fan of personalized jokes and innuendos.
I am a licensed minister and I will sign your license as “Reverend” because “High Priestess” doesn’t stand up in American courts of law for some reason *shrugs*.
I like to think I have a pretty clear and inviting voice. I used to teach middle school so I can talk loud enough for grandma to hear me. I also used to do stand up so I’m not afraid to stand in-front of a group of strangers and make sure everyone has a great time.
My contracts (and fee) are upfront and honest. You get a paper, I get a paper. Everyone gets a paper saying what I’m gonna do and how much you’re gonna pay me for it. Your ceremony is more important to me than anything so I don’t spend a lot of time on numbers but it definitely gets handled the right way.
