    Rev. Bill Cochran of Say “I Do” Your Way describes how to check a potential wedding officiant’s credentials before booking.

    Host: How do I know if my wedding officiant is legally certified in the jurisdiction I am getting married?

    Bill Cochran: It would be good to ask because it is very important that they be certified and so you would want to talk with them about their certification and the process involved and ask them when they were certified and whether it's renewable and if they are up to date on that. Those are just some preliminary things that would be important to ask.
