Hey, I wanted to see if anyone had a rec for a good officiant to perform a non-religious ceremony? Also, does anyone know if there is a venue fee for receptions at resorts? I received the brochure with menues and cost estimates. I didn’t see mention of any venue costs other than for inside the park.

Thanks!

Here's my episode full of tips on choosing an officiant: https://disneyweddingpodcast.com/how-to-choose-an-officiant/

And here's my interview with non-denominational officiant Renee Silverman: https://disneyweddingpodcast.com/vendor-spotlight-officiant-renee-silverman/

Convention-center resort locations don't have venue fees, but some of the special venues at the resorts, like Atlantic Dance Hall, do. If you have my Fairytale Weddings Guide, I list all the venue fees and food and beverage minimums for each location in Chapters 2, 3 and 5. You can see photos of all the venues here: https://fairytaleweddingsguide.com/wdw-venues/

Can I ask, do you still need an officiant if it's just for a vow renewal?
Don't really know how it all works if there is nothing legal involved wedding certificate wise - sorry

    For a vow renewal you can have pretty much anyone officiate because, yeah, it's not legal and nobody has to sign a license or anything. However, a professional officiant will be able to run the ceremony smoothly and know the order of service, so that's something to consider.

    We’re already married. We just didn’t have a wedding, but we’ve decided to have an experienced officiant to keep everything running as smoothly as possible.
