There is no requirement to have a wedding officiant’s license or to register as an officiant, but you must be qualified to conduct a marriage ceremony according to Texas law.
Only certain persons may officiate a marriage ceremony. Texas Family Code Section 2.202 states who qualifies to perform weddings that are valid under Texas state law:
No. You must be qualified to officiate a wedding according to Texas Family Code Section 2.202. There is no requirement to register with the state before you can perform the ceremony.
Only if they meet the requirements described above. Some people choose to become officers of a religious organization specifically for this purpose.
Under Texas Family Code Section 2.302, the marriage is still valid if certain conditions are met:
If an unauthorized person knowingly officiates the ceremony, the offense is a Class A misdemeanor or a third-degree felony. For more details, see Texas Family Code Section 2.202(c) and Section 2.202(d).
