CHECKS - Officiant and wedding band

Last night DF and I met with a wedding officiant who we like and are probably going to go with. We want to ponder to make sure this is the right fit, but I think it's 99% certain. The only reason I hesitate is because the officiant is a woman. Now call me traditional, but I always imagined being married by a man. But neither of the men we met with really resonated with us. One was too religious for DF's liking and the other was too strict and set in his ways. So I think we'll go with her... She seems very accomodating and lovely.

And while out last night, we went and paid off my wedding band and picked it up! I got to put it on in the store, but now DF has forced me to put it away in the 'wedding closet'.

  • Congrats on the checks! I know what you mean about the woman officiant.

    If we were getting married at home I think I would be fine with it, but for some reason since we're getting married in Hawaii I've just had this image in my head of a Hawaiian man in Hawaiian garb marrying us and a woman just didn't fit into my vision. It also turned out that our officiant has the look that I'm going for and a beautiful simple ceremony with some Hawaiian flare and absolutely no religion :)

    I sneak my wedding ring on pretty often ;) I need to break myself of that habit.

    I did this with my e-ring. DF hid it and I accidentally found it (and of course tried it on before I told him I found it). Then he hid it again and I accidentally found it again and then it just became a game where he'd hide it and I'd purposely (at that point) go looking for it. I loved finding it and putting it on. Finally he put it out in plan sight and it taunted me for a while before he proposed.
  • I am using a woman officiant. I was worried too,but I am definitely happy with my choice!  Dont wear your ring until the day!! :-p You'll have the rest of your life to wear it  Smile
