Who Is This Officiant Training Program For?
I DO-Wedding Officiant Training is NOT an ordination service. Our programs help you build on the authority of your ordination.
"Good training is a continual friend and a solace; it helps you now, and assures you of help in the future."
- Richard Mitchell
When I began leading wedding ceremonies 28 years ago, I had the benefit of training during ministerial school. I learned what the elements of a ceremony are from a New Thought perspective and from this foundation, I built my style of officiating a wedding.
I had people to bounce things off of and get good feedback. I can't imagine what it's like to start out without this kind of help. I want every couple to have a fabulous wedding ceremony and that means helping new officiants to do the best they can do -- (here comes the corney punch line) by being Ready, Willing AND Able!

The first of every week for 3 weeks you'll receive an email with links to download all of the resources, templates and how-to's for that week's focus. Download at your own pace. If you're a quick starter, you can elect to receive all the materials at once.

Part One of the program specially leads you from start to finish so you'll know what to expect -- and be in charge.

"Questions and Able Answers"
I’m not interested in anything fancy or spiritual. Will I still get value from this program?
You sure can. The Brilliant Officiant package is a basic skills and resources package. We're not promoting any religion or belief system. You have complete freedom to cut, paste or edit. If you're interested in a more spiritual perspective of being an Officiant, that's a program in development.
What if I change my mind and decide I don't want to be an Officiant?
It’s all good. We know officiating isn't for everyone so we'll refund your money. All we ask is you request your refund within two weeks. We won't be giving refunds after that.
What if I miss a Facebook Live session?
Sessions will be recorded so you can watch them anytime of day or night
Can I ask questions?
Absolutely! You'll be notified when you can post your questions before the Facebook Live session and Rev Crystal will answer as many of them as she can.
