Wedding Minister – Characteristics & Importance

Posted on 14 October 2010

Most of the couples who are planning on their wedding spend endless time on every little detail of the decorations, attire, music and food. No doubt every one of the mentioned things are important for a marriage to appear good and a memorable occasion, but there are several other things that are commonly overlooked while planning for a wedding ceremony.

Wedding Minister

While planning for a wedding, one should keep in mind that the wedding is only lively when the guests are properly entertained, and feel themselves included in the wedding. You could have the best decorations ever, but your wedding is not going to be memorable to you or the other guests if you didn’t pay attention to the entertainment and the proper decoration of the wedding. We have visited many weddings which has just brought us to sleep some point along the way, because the decorators just lacked that touch of originality that was so required on an occasion like that. All weddings are unique, and what makes them unique is the couple themselves. The ceremonies are all the same.

So what exactly brings life to a wedding? Well the orator is the most necessary part. While planning for a wedding ceremony, you really have to pick out a good wedding minister for yourself, and that doesn’t stop there. What the couples have to do is to spend time with the minister, sharing their thoughts and dreams about the marriage. A good minister would be able to feel your heart out, would find out exactly about the couple’s likes and dislikes, and therefore would be able to provide just the touch to the wedding that would really give the “couple touch” to the wedding that would make it unique. Therefore, I have listed down five important characteristics that you need to look in a wedding minister:

1. Relational:

A good wedding minister must relate during the oration to the guests present, so everybody stays attentive.

2. Culturally sensitive:

Weddings often bring together people from diverse cultures and ethnicities. If even it’s not that in your case, your guests could be multi cultural. Therefore, it is essential that the wedding ministers is really sensitive culturally and does end up offending people.

3. Punctual:

A good wedding minister should be able to work within the time allotted to him, because normally people would have someplace else to go after your marriage or would get too bored if the ceremony is dragged on unnecessarily.

4. Fun and heartfelt:

You would want a wedding minister that is fun loving and heartfelt. Marriage is both a joyous and an emotional occasion, so the person must have these two qualities to properly design and go through with your marriage.

5. Creative:

Creativity will make your marriage unique and a memorable event by many. A wedding minister should have creativity encoded into him, so that he/she could make your marriage a fun time to remember.

Wedding is not something that happen everyday. It’s a joyous and emotional occasion that brings together two souls as one. Planning for a wedding should involve steps to make it the most memorable event ever.
