Get Ordained Online In Arizona: Legal Certification For Wedding Officiants

What are the Wedding Officiant Registration Requirements in Arizona? NO OFFICIANT REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED You might be surprised to learn that wedding officiants in Arizona are not mandated to register with any government office before conducting marriage ceremonies. The Arizona State Government does not have laws requiring officiant registration or any dedicated office for such purposes.

Arizona does have a law (Arizona Revised Statutes ยง 25-124) that outlines who can solemnize marriage, which includes all ministers, including those ordained online. However, there are no laws, offices, or procedures mandating officiants to register with any government office.

In essence, once you are an online ordained minister, you immediately have the legal ability to officiate weddings anywhere in Arizona. If you’ve been asked to officiate a wedding in Arizona, get ordained today!

Ordination is fast, free, and simple. To learn more about getting ordained in Arizona, check out our Get Ordained page.

Keep Records of Your Ministry Credentials While there are no officiant registration requirements in Arizona, being an ordained minister is necessary to legally perform marriages. Local regulations stipulate that wedding officiants designated as “Ministers” must be ordained by a religious organization.

Although registering with any Arizona government office as a wedding officiant is not required, it’s wise to maintain personal records of your official Ministry Credentials. Proof of your ordination is important in case the couple, government officials, or the wedding venue request it.

We recommend ordering your Arizona Minister Ordination Package to obtain your official ministry credentials. Your package includes your official Ordination Certificate and Letter of Good Standing.

Your Letter of Good Standing is signed by a church officer, dated, and notarized. Additionally, your Minister Ordination Package includes your Minister’s Manual, a valuable resource for officiant training information.

Part of the proceeds from your order will contribute to our charitable activities. So, along with receiving your ministry credentials, you are also supporting a good cause.
