Email Method for Sending a Referral
Referring Ministers, please use this Email method.
Referring Ministers could send a referral to Wedding Ministers by sending the "sorry, I am not available" reply to a couple AND a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is a sample of an email that a Referring Minister might send to a couple for whom the Referring Minister is unavailable, also providing information to them about the referral. This email template could be automatically entered in Outlook or Outlook Express as a 'signature.' Or, you could keep this format in a text file and make the few changes after pasting it into an email.
Dear Bride and Groom,
Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding!
While I am booked at (the date and time of your wedding), I would like to refer you to the 'Matchmaker' - Gary Ritner - and the web site at whatagreatchurch.org/weddingministers so that you may benefit from this service matching couples with wedding ministers at no cost to you.
I'll send an email to the 'Matchmaker' and I will ask him to request that a reputable Wedding Minister in your area (who is available at that date and time) contact you.
You are under no obligation and are free to accept or reject the offer of the Wedding Minister who contacts you. If you would like a different referral or you would like to choose a Wedding Minister in your area, go to
to see the Wedding Ministers listed there and then fill out the form to select wedding ministers in your area.
I think you will be very pleased with the 'Wedding Ministers' services!
Best wishes for your wedding!
Blessings on Your Wedding Planning!
