We get this question all the time: What is a Rockin Wedding? Wonder no longer. We’re going to fill you in so you know all there is to know about the Rockin Wedding and why it’s our most popular wedding package.
PS: In 2021, we changed the name of our Rockin’ Wedding package to “Custom & Creative Ceremony.” Same great package, new cool name.
Who is the Rockin Wedding for?
The Rockin Wedding is for couples planning a ceremony for more than 20 guests who are looking for something more than your standard ceremony. It’s for people who really believe that their wedding day and ceremony should be about them. It’s for people who know that the ceremony is the most important part of the wedding day, and not just the legal part they want to fast forward through. The Rockin Wedding is for you if you want your ceremony to tell your love story, feel personal and honour your values.
We hear about couples who spend so much time and money picking out the perfect napkins, bouquets and signature cocktails to represent them for their wedding. Why not invest some of that same time and money into a ceremony that represents you?
So, what is it?
The Rockin Wedding is our answer to the standard boring ceremony you hear at weddings all the time. You know the ceremony we’re talking about – it’s the one that has nothing to do with the couple besides their names. The Rockin Wedding is the complete opposite – it’s all about the couple! With the Rockin Wedding, our officiants are creating a ceremony with you that is based on your love story. It’s a ceremony that honours your values and represents what is important to you. The ceremony is created to fit your style – whether that’s romantic and serious or light-hearted and goofy. It’s a completely unique and one of a kind ceremony; no set scripts here!
The Rockin Wedding ceremony is the kind that will have guests coming up to you after saying, “Wow! That ceremony was incredible. It was so you two! How long have you known your officiant for? You must have been friends for years!”
What does the Rockin Wedding include?
We’ll break it down for you:
- Complimentary consultation with your officiant
- Custom ceremony tailor-made just for you
- Unlimited ceremony edits and revisions
- Phone/email contact with your officiant throughout
- Coordination of your rehearsal
- Early arrival to your ceremony
- Performance and facilitation of your ceremony, including your vows, readings, etc.
- Back-up officiants, in case an emergency occurs
- Legal/administrative registration of your marriage after the ceremony
- 100% money-back guarantee
- A ceremony you and your guests will remember for the rest of your lives!
Before you sign any contract or pay us any money, you get the opportunity to meet with your officiant in person. Your officiant will meet you for coffee and ask you all about your relationship, your love story and what you’re hoping for your wedding ceremony. It’s your chance to share your ideas and get a sense of who will be marrying you, before you make any commitment.
You have total control over your ceremony with the Rockin Wedding package. Your officiant will provide you with drafts of the ceremony throughout the process and you can make as many edits as you’d like. You will also be able to see the final draft of your ceremony before the big day. That means there won’t be any surprises at your ceremony because you’ll know exactly what your officiant is going to say.
You’ll be able to get in touch with your officiant over the phone or through email as often as you’d like leading up to your ceremony. Your officiant is there for you to answer any questions, incorporate all of your amazing ideas and help you with ceremony tasks, like choosing readings and writing your vows. Your officiant is your greatest resource and they’re eager to help make your ceremony fantastic.
Coordination of Your Rehearsal
Included in the Rockin Wedding package is coordination of your rehearsal. Having your officiant coordinate and run your ceremony rehearsal is incredibly helpful. They have the experience, and will be able to put everyone’s nerves at ease by ensuring you two and your wedding party know exactly what is going to happen and when. Your officiant will also be able to remind everyone that the wedding day is all about you two and that’s where the focus should be.
Check out these reviews from past couples who have had Rockin Weddings of their own:
“Words can’t express how pleased and amazed we were with our choice in using Young Hip and Married as our officiants for our September 2nd, 2017 wedding! We had the pleasure to work with JANE HALTON! She was extremely professional, organized, so easy to talk to and get to know, and so talented at creating the best ceremony script! Our guests were blown away at how personalized, fun, yet romantic the ceremony was. We literally had guests tell us it was “the best they have ever been to.” I would highly recommend investing in Young Hip and Married/Jane Halton for your upcoming wedding!!! Thanks again Jane!!! You are the best!” – Kylie
“Our officiant Mark was a dream to work with. My husband and I come from two completely different backgrounds/cultures/faiths, and we wanted to craft our ceremony in such a way that it could encompass both of our traditions and values. Mark went through everything with us and made the process so easy. He was organized, helpful, and most of all very patient. The speech he crafted for us was so beautiful, and his personality was so warm and welcoming that our guests still can’t stop talking about our beautiful ceremony!” – Sherry & Jeffrey
“Shawn from Young, Hip, and Married was the officiant for our wedding in October 2016. Communication leading up to the wedding was prompt, the script he produced was fantastic and wonderfully tailored to us, and he made sure that everything went incredibly smoothly. YHM are paragons of professionalism, right down to the wedding rehearsal (which I highly recommend you take advantage of). I have literally no complaints about them and, were I to do it all over again, I’d still go with YHM. They’re not the cheapest, but you absolutely get what you pay for.” – Geoff
“We are so happy we had Young Hip & Married for our wedding! Lani was our officiant and she was beyond amazing! We had a lovely first meeting and she really took the time to get to know us. She helped us with writing our vows and gave us lots of great suggestions for the wedding. The ceremony was unique and really personal, and we wouldn’t have changed a thing! We would definitely recommend YH&M to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding!” – Mariel
