Your wedding day is a big step in a relationship and the starting point of an exciting adventure ahead. Your marriage celebrant is the person who will make this special day memorable for both you and all of your guests, so it’s important to choose someone who will make your day perfect.
Choosing Wedding Celebrants
If you are looking to search for wedding celebrants Melbourne is the perfect place to start. With hundreds to choose from, the search could make you feel stressed out, but there are a few things to think about before calling each one up.
A top-rated wedding celebrant is very high in demand and gets booked quickly, so finding someone great is one of the most important things to think about. In general, a celebrant should be booked no later than 6 months before your wedding ceremony.
Before booking an appointment with a celebrant, look at reviews and check out websites or profiles to see what kind of personality they have. Are they serious, playful, unique? Find someone that appeals to and get your notes together for a chat.
Take a moment to think about the type of marriage ceremony that you want. Whether it’s traditional or something unique, the celebrant is the person who should match not just the type of wedding you are looking for, but also your personalities. Feeling comfortable with the celebrant will set the mood of the ceremony and make the whole event memorable and fun.
What to Expect
When looking for a celebrant, try to find someone close to you or your venue location. This will make it easy for you to meet and get to the wedding on the day. Also, giving your business to local vendors will help other couples find quality celebrants for their special day.
In general, a couple will meet with their celebrant 2-3 times before the big day. Yes, it’s possible to communicate via phone or email, but there will be at least 2 face-to-face meetings to discuss you as a couple, the type of wedding you want and finalising the certificate beforehand.
Also, keep in mind that highly rated celebrants will also cost a bit more than unknown names in the industry, but for good reason. To make sure your ceremony is perfect, aim to hire a professional who knows how to set the mood and stick to the decided schedule and theme. Overall, you should be prepared to set aside anything from $500 to $1000 from your wedding budget.
