I keep talking to Notaries who are telling me that the Notary business is dead, but Weddings keep them busy. Notaries in South Carolina, Florida and Maine can become wedding officiants. But, those in other states somehow are involved in the business as well. Not all of us want to do process service, inspections, photos, or other typical Notary income supplementary tasks. But, few Notaries have considered doing Weddings. Do I think it’s a good idea? I do! I’m not sure what is involved. Some states require you to be in the clergy. I’m not sure what’s involved in that. Becoming a Reverend might be easier than becoming a Chassidic Rabbi. But, that is up to you to find out what the laws say. Many states might have more secular positions that allow for Weddings.
So, should 123notary have a search option for Wedding Officiants? At least in the states where it is commonly performed? Maybe we should. Many Notaries claim they get a lot of Wedding business from us. So, what do we have to lose? Eventually we will create this search function, but not until 123notary has sewed its wild cyber-oats.
