Certain couples focus on their reception, whereas others place emphasis on the ceremony. For the latter, the wording is often a very important part of the process in setting the tone for the occasion. Working with a professional officiant that is skilled in writing wedding scripts can help bring an elevated sense of personalization to the experience. Customizing the speech is a great way to keep everyone entertained while shedding light on the uniqueness of the couple.
For the couples out there that are looking to spend more of their time in preparing their celebration, there are prewritten wedding scripts that can get the job done. Rather than completely depending on templates, many of these prospective spouses make the decision to use them as guidelines for drafting their own words. I believe that there is always a certain level of importance in making each celebration truly unique to the people involved.
Many wedding officiants in the Bay Area always use these premade pieces, at least to serve as basic foundations for their speeches. Though this is valuable in saving time, it is not always the best way to create a one of a kind experience. I like working with couples to tailor their wedding script to their experiences together and their views for the future.
