Bring our own officiant?....
Posted 30 September 2008 - 07:38 PM
I posted my first thread this morning, but I don't think it was put on the PV thread.
Anyways, does anyone have info, website etc about whether you can bring your own officiant?
We are having our best friend be ordained and we want him to marry us in PV. Does this make it legal if he is performing the ceremony?
I've been on numerous websites and I can't seem to find a solid answer.
Thanks for any help!

But he can perform your ceremony, you would just need to be legally married in the states.

Our friend is becoming an officiant to perform the wedding in Mexico. I was under the impression that the officiant didn't need to be present in IL when preparing all of the legal paperwork. As long as the officiant signs the document(s) directly following the ceremony (which can be any where) and returns the paperwork to COOK county IL w/in 10days of our vows - our marriage was legal.

I don't believe the officiant actually has to be present during the legal part of it. I think he can just sign the paperwork later? I need to look into this more, because my dad lives in Minneapolis so I hope he doesn't have to fly in just to sign the paperwork!

The one that had a friend ordained said it was easy to do online and they just had to file paperwork when they got home to make it legal. I don't have information on where to find info on being ordained yet though.
