Wedding Ceremony Tip - Memorizing Marriage Vows - By The Clergy Network

Southern California Marriage Ceremony
Wording Requirements - Wedding Officiators
Say ?
December 23, 2010 - "Is it a legal requirement to memorize and then give wedding vows unprompted during the wedding ceremony?"
Answer - No

Some wedding clergy or other marriage officiators insist on marriage vows being memorized and then given without assistance during the wedding ceremony  - This is not a legal requirement, so don't feel pressured into this.  Perhaps it is in that wedding clergy's tradition, but most couples should be given other options as to how to communicate their marriage vows. The Clergy Network has a number of ways for their Southern California brides and grooms to share their marriage vows.

We preside marriage ceremonies throughout Southern California. - To book a TCN wedding officiator  -

We are preferred marriage ceremony officiators for civil or religious wedding ceremony wording at many wedding locations. We are members of wedding professional groups such as The Orange County Wedding Planning Center -

We can't tell you his name, out of courteous to his privacy... but, we can say that he appeared on CHIPS, sang with someone from the original "rat pack", along with his sitcom run. We enjoyed working with this former child star actor, as he was a polite ceremony interested groom, pleased with celebrity wedding officiator, Dr. Linda's custom written marriage ceremony wording and his personally selected TCN wedding officiator!

Southern California Wedding Officiators - Couple Jumps Cruise Ship to Marry In Tustin California - Unusual Wedding Guest Look On! 
(Update Sept 9th 2013) - Tustin - Southern California - Wedding Officiators True Stories - Many couples dream of being married on a cruise ship. But, what if you work on one? Would you wish to marry aboard ship? Our TCN couple, working on a cruise ship that travels the world, couldn't wait to get off the ship to marry! Upon docking, jumped ship, travelling from San Diego to Tustin, California to "Tie the Knot!" Hopefully, to become Mr. and Mrs quickly enough to get back on board their cruise ship work place and home, before it left port later that day. 

This cruise ship employed couple, both Bulgarian citizens, meet while working aboard various cruise lines. Still gainfully employed on the San Diego docked ship, they would have only two hours to marry, (at a private estate home), enjoy a reception luncheon and embark from their floating home. Also, the identity of the best man changed on route to their nuptials. Upon their Tustin arrival, the marriage ceremony was watched by their Bulgarian family via Skype, and the local wedding guests included the estate home's owner and her many kitty cats!

Finally, note the original image and quote by Dr. Linda, about a recent "Dockside" wedding ceremony. above or "like" at Pinterest.

Anaheim Wedding Officiant - Trusting A Wedding Officiator That You Don't Know

Anaheim California - Wedding Officiators - Today, just about anyone can become a wedding clergy or wedding officiator in Anaheim California. Look at the many links in the search engines or in on-line wedding directories. Based in Anaheim Hills, The Clergy Network offers screened, degreed professional wedding officiants, no "fake clergy" can qualify for our group, and noone in our group pays for advertising space.

What To Look Out For When Selecting An Anaheim Wedding Officiant - A few Suggestions

1. Is part of a Wedding Officiator On-line Directory - If so, referrals are not credible, as these officiators are only referred because they pay for the advertising space. They are not veted, and are more than likely not "real" wedding officiators. This is the case in most all on-line Southern California Wedding Officiator groups, expect for The Clergy Network.

2. Is an independent officiator, (working without partnerships), such as Reverend__________, as this does not give choice of wedding officiator, nor does it guarantee Emergency Backup in the event of that officiators illness or inavailability. The Clergy Network guarantees Emergency Wedding Officiant backup in our Officiants service contract.

Sour Wedding And Sales Coordinator At Orange County Wedding Locations Loses April 17th 2010 Wedding Event!

February 18, 2010 – Sour Wedding Coordinator at local Orange County wedding location loses TCN Couple’s Event.

So What Happened?

Southern California Wedding Locations – Orange County California – Wedding officiators, marriage ministers and wedding clergy know something about what goes on behind the scenes at local wedding venues. As with any person to person meeting, “first impressions” can chart the course of continued discourse or interest. Recently, a sour wedding coordinator, associated with a local Orange County California wedding venue, provided no help to a Clergy Network couple planning a near future wedding ceremony. The Clergy Network bride commented on the fact that the venue’s event planner not only “did not smile”, but seemed disinterested in booking the open April 17th 2010 wedding date. As a result the wedding location, here in Anaheim, lost not only this couple’s event, but several of their friends looking for wedding locations locally.

Facts For Brides and Grooms Regarding Wedding Location Sales & Your Wedding Event

Point One – Corporately held wedding locations sales drop due to sales staff unsuited in personality, competency and enthusiasm. Not an uncommon scenario in corporately held hotels, country clubs, etc.

Point Two – Overworked and underpaid wedding and event planners, employed by corporate owned venues, can work under unrealistically imposed “rules” that hamper sales. Burdened under the weight of restriction, a sales representative’s hands may be tied, with the end result loss of revenue.

What Can We Do To Tell You About The Behind The Scenes of Wedding Locations?

The Clergy Network of Southern California is happy to discuss a proposed wedding venue from an “Officiator’s” prospective.

Southern California Wedding Officiators At The Clergy Network - 2010 (Revised 2013) - American Bride to be to marry Australian groom. American father-of-the- bride is taught to "Speak Australian" by a TCN Australian wedding officiator, in anticipation of new family addition. This eager American father-of-the-bride was happy to receive a course on the "Australian" culture too. From geography to history to social etiquette, our Australian wedding officiator spent plenty of time before the wedding rehearsal preparing the bride's dad for the first time meeting of his soon-to-be Australian son-in-law! Dad wanted to make his new Australian son-in-law and his parents feel truly welcomed! Our talented multi-cultural and well traveled wedding clergy/officiators are always happy to be of help. Now, really, what other wedding officiant would go beyond his wedding responsibilities to do this? Personally, I believe only our TCN wedding officiators would!
