Can I officiate my own wedding?

You are here:

No. Ordained ministers may not officiate their own wedding.

Most if not all jurisdictions in the United States require solemnization in addition to having a marriage license for there to be a legally valid marriage. Another party who is authorized to solemnize marriages must officiate.  Typically at least two witnesses who are age 18 must also participate.
