Q: Do I need to invite the Officiant to the reception? And a +1?


No, we’re not inviting the official to the reception. And here’s why. I’m a professional officiant. I’ve been doing this for 15 years, and I love standing with you on your wedding day and sharing your love and being a part of that moment. It is truly so amazing. But after that, you guys are swept away for photos and dinner and dancing and everything else you have going on. So for me, who doesn’t know anybody there, it can be a little awkward. I’m going to grab a drink and socialize with folks and hang out. But again, it’s a little bit of an awkward situation because I don’t know anybody. This is a time for your friends and family to celebrate and enjoy the company of each other, and I think that is an amazing moment for them. Also, I might have another wedding that day, so, quite frankly, I just can’t stay. I don’t have the time to do that. The one exception is if you wish you’re efficient to do the blessing for you, then yes, you must invite them to dinner so that they can do the blessing and then enjoy that dinner with you. Beyond that, don’t invite them. We love spending the time with you, but you don’t need to spend your money on us.
