I was just curious. Has anyone sent their officiant an official invitation to the wedding? So they have all the details?

Is anyone having their officiant attend the reception? If yes, where are you seating them?

We are getting married at our reception site. Our officiant is non-denominal. We contacted her specifically for the wedding. We don't have a relationship with her otherwise, like many people do with their priests or rabbis. Should we invite her?

yes and yes...but he has yet to RSVP

our congregation is small, and actually the pastor's parents and my mother's parents came to the states on the same boat and have the same last name!

Hi Amy

Yes, I sent our priest an invitation. He's the most important part of the ceremony except for FH and I. He probably gets invited to a lot of weddings so he'll probably not come but it looks nice to send him one.

I'm in the same situation as you... she happened to officiate a friend of mine's wedding and I knew she just stayed for cocktail hour so I just kind of asked her if she would stay for cocktail hour. I don't think you need to invite them to the reception...

Yes. We hand delivered ours to our officiant because we reserved him at the very last minute for our wedding. (Long story) We were very glad that he was available inspite of the last minute notice. However, he was not available to attend our reception not even for our cocktail hour.

A year later we learned from this board as well as other boards that our officiant, Reverend Karl W. Gillmeister passed away in February 2004.
