“Some couples choose to jet away to an exotic or remote locale to celebrate their joining. Whether for economic or creative reasons, when you choose to host your wedding at a destination away from your hometown, family, and friends, chances are the choice of your officiant will become a big question. Many resorts and spas offer complete wedding services, including a licensed marriage officer of the country or state. You can usually have your choice of religious or secular officiant even in remote locations. If you choose to work with a local officiant, I strongly recommend that you develop a rapport with that person as far in advance of your wedding as possible.”
