Title: Buffalo, NY wedding ceremony in a few months
Post by: Rev Dave Man on April 27, 2017, 06:36:19 PM
Wish me luck.  This will be my first wedding as an ordained Dudeist priest.  Any suggestions from experienced wedding ceremony performers would be greatly appreciated.  I'm not going to stress about it or really put a lot of effort into it man, but it's for a good friend so I don't want it to be totally fucked up either.  I also don't need any hassle from the man so I am assuming there's forms or something.  NY state is known for being uptight when it comes to regulations.

Congratulations and good luck! I know it's good to check with local city ordinances to make sure everything's in line. I haven't officiated any ceremonies yet myself though I hope to in the future.

I saw this amazing post (http://dudeism.com/smf/wedding-ceremonies/dude-wedding-ceremony/msg49554/#msg49554) if it gives you any ideas for words.

I know this post is super old! But I was wondering how you made out with your Buffalo NY ceremony? I will be officating a wedding in a few weeks and cant get a hold of anyone at the Erie County clerks office regarding Dudeism and marriage ceremonies. Thanks in advance.

I'm glad to see Hotel Lafayette getting remodeled instead of torn down. I always thought it was such a cool building, it was just in such a state of disrepair for so long.  Right on man, right on.

Sorry for taking so long to reply Clayton, the wedding went off without a hitch. You don't have to deal with anyone at the Erie County Clerks office. That's an exercise in frustration for sure.  You only need to deal with the town in which you are performing the ceremony.  Whatever town you are performing the ceremony in is where you will file the paperwork.  The paperwork is basically just the wedding license.  You have the bride and groom, along with the witnesses sign it, and then you sign it as the "officiant".  I sign mine as "Rev." and then my name.  The last wedding I performed was in Lancaster, NY and went into the town hall with the paperwork and signed my name with "Reverend" before it, and handed it in.  The couple I married told me that they received their wedding papers in 2 weeks.  I have never had anyone tell me that they've had a problem in receiving their marriage certificates.  Best of luck to you, and again, sorry for taking so long to reply.
