Wedding Celebrant Checklist - 8 Must-Haves You Need With You For A Ceremony

A Wedding Celebrant Checklist and toolkit is like a friend who's always got your back, but sometimes knowing what to pack isn't always easy. Obviously doing your research about your venue beforehand is always advised, however, sometimes you don't always know what you'll need before it's too late. I know I definitely learned the hard way!

 

Here's my Wedding Celebrant Checklist of 8 absolute must-haves you need with you for a ceremony.

Multi Microphone System

An absolute must in your Wedding Celebrant Checklist is a multi-microphone system, including a lapel and headset microphone. Having a microphone will ensure that all of the guests can hear you clearly and you can move around with ease throughout the ceremony. This one has some great features including universal compatibility, fast charging and volume control.

Script Stand

You'll be working at multiple venues and locations so make sure you have a script stand that works with you, not against you. This one is lightweight and easily transportable. It has a wide reading surface with a built-in hard rubber book stopper and is adjustable in height too!

White Umbrella

An umbrella that will be big enough to protect you from the sun and rain is always a good idea! Go for white so it's unobtrusive and fits in with the theme of the day.

Roller Bag

A portable bag is a no brainer, but make sure you get one that works for you and can fit all your Wedding Celebrant Checklist items in it! Sometimes you may have to walk to the venue so having all your things in one place will definitely make it less stressful. This one has lots of different compartments and a fully retractable handle so you can store it neatly once you've unpacked it.

Personalised Presentation Folder

Arrive at your ceremonies looking professional with a personalised script folder; it's a wonderful addition to your Wedding Celebrant Checklist. This one is made of recycled leather with an internal ring binder to keep all your written notes safe.

Portable Bluetooth Speaker

If you don't need a full PA system then a quality portable Bluetooth speaker is perfect. This one has a good quality sound and it's waterproof for those days when you need it!

Folding Table

You may find yourself needing somewhere to put your extras on. A foldaway table or tables means that you can transport them easily and store them when you don't need them anymore. These wooden ones will match your script stand too for a cohesive look.

PA System

If the venue doesn't have one or you are working in an outdoor space then you may need a portable PA sound system. This one by Bose has wireless Bluetooth pairing and built-in sensors and multiple aiming positions for optimal sound in any position.
