BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU CUT CORNERS
First things first, from a legal standpoint you might need a government-approved officiant for your wedding, depending on where you are getting married. Without an officiant recognized by the local government in which you’re to be married, your wedding may not really be legal. However, finding a local officiant might be easier (and cheaper) than you’d think. A popular option (in some areas) for couples these days is to ask a friend or family member to officiate their wedding.
