Our goal is to help people on their path to performing marriage for friends and family.The act of solemnizing marriage historically belonged to the people, and only recently has it become the domain of the state.
In Mississippi no laws exist requiring ministers to register with any government office in order to perform marriage though all wedding officiants must be at least 18 years of age. The only step you need to take to have the legal authority to perform marriage is to become an AMM minister. You do not need prior ministerial experience and we welcome people of all beliefs and backgrounds.
Although there is no legal requirement for ministers to register with the Mississippi government, in the past certain County Clerk's offices have asked our ministers to produce documentation verifying their ordination.
Our resources are here to walk you through a wedding ceremony, discussing structure, providing samples, and more.
Every wedding is unique, and the couple will want to personalize the format of their ceremony.
Weddings are a celebration with friends and family – the best audience anyone could ask for.
If you have never conducted a wedding or are simply want to refresh your knowledge, visit the Wedding Training section.
