Georgia Marriage Minister Ordination (image) How do you get ordained to perform wedding ceremonies for your friends and family in Georgia? Getting ordained is simple, legal, inexpensive and takes just a few minutes! Click here to get started.

Minister ordination for Georgia includes authorization to legally perform all of life's celebrations, including marriage ceremonies (weddings), baby blessings (baptism), house blessings, re-commitment ceremonies (vow renewal), memorials (funerals), handfasting, and other rites and rituals.

Ordination as a Marriage Officiant and ceremonial minister complies with all state and local laws in Georgia and is valid and accepted throughout the United States and everywhere around the world!

The laws in Georgia make it unnecessary for persons performing marriage ceremonies to file their credentials with any state or local agency, but you must hold a current and valid minister's license  to perform such rites; in addition, you must present your credentials to any legal authority and/or the parties to the marriage upon their request.

In Georgia, ordination or investment by the Church gives each clergy member the authority to perform the marriage rite. Georgia and local officials in the state are removed from any responsibility for verification of minister credentials. Georgia does not maintain a central registry of members of the clergy, and you are not required to undergo any specific formal training.

Not a resident of Georgia? Georgia does not restrict legally ordained non-resident Marriage Officiants from performing wedding ceremonies anywhere in the state.
Ordination Fee: We offer low-cost ordination that is valid and accepted throughout the United States, including Georgia, for a nominal fee that covers our basic printing costs, which is generally a fraction of how much you can earn by performing just one ceremony!
All state-required forms and documents are included in all packages. In addition, any fees paid may be tax-deductible as a work-related expense. (Consult with your tax professional for more information.)
