MAKE IT EASIEST FOR COUPLES TO FIND YOU
"A domain name is an easy-to-remember address for a website. You would rather type "google.com" in your browser than 188.8.131.52 (google.com's IP number), even though they both lead to the same site" (~siteground). When domain names were introduced, they made navigating the internet much easier because remembering a name is easier than remembering a long number. We are thankful for those who come up with ideas that make life simpler and easier for us.
SPEND YOUR TIME AND RESOURCES SMARTLY: KEYWORDS
In digital technology, a key-word is "a word that's key to classifying and organizing digital content and facilitating online searches for information: Relevant keywords make it easier for engaged couples to find you because they will be able to recognize what you do at a glance. The most relevant keywords are those showing WHAT you do and WHERE you're located (obviously important for engaged couples getting married in your area and only wanting to contact officiants there). Including the location in your domain name targets your specific market and is a very smart use of your time and resources. (definition inspired by dictionary.com, comment inspired by google's domain experience)
DECIDE IF IT'S IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO HAVE A .COM
(Opinion:) Consider that a .com's important because it's common, expected and most smart phones have the word ".com" built into one's keypad for texting. Does this mean you can't have success with a non .com? Not at all. Personally, for me, it makes sense to use .coms only because most people do think of .coms as the standard (which makes it the standard for those who think it's the standard). That said, go with what is best for you. The best for you is always best.
MAKE IT EASY FOR COUPLES TO KNOW IT'S ACTUALLY *YOU*
Here's another way to tell about the value of a good domain name. [The following is obvious and worth repeating] The website a couple will arrive at after entering your domain name must be YOU. Engaged couples are among the busiest because, in addition to already being very busy in their lives, they have a wedding to plan. Which means, couples are movin' fast. And they want to find things fast. And it has to be simple, easy. What is simple, easy? The site they arrive at must be You (no confusion - no doubt - clear). A wedding officiant domain name that shows your service (officiant, minister) and location (metro, city, state) are essential.~inspired by google.
