Hey everyone! We are getting married September 8th of this year and I feel like I have contacted pretty much all of the officiant on the app with no luck yet. If anyone knows of anyone who can perform a non-religious, own vows short and sweet ceremony please message Me!!! Thank you so very much in advance!!!
My fiance and I actually asked my brother to officiate our wedding because we didn't want somebody that didn't know "us". My brother's not a marriage commissioner but he's able to marry us with a one time permit that we file with "Vital Statistics Agency". If this is an option that you'd be open to, I've attached a copy of the application form below but you can also email them for more info (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Hi Kat! Have you contacted Colleen Olafson? I felt like everyone was booked for the day of my wedding and she was available! Colleen is honestly amazing, great with communication and super fun to meet with! Hopefully she can officiate for you!
Hey Kat, did you try to go contact an officiant through wedding wire? Also if you go on vitalstats manitoba at the bottom of the page they have a download list, where they have license issuers in Winnipeg/Rural Manitoba, and Marriage Commissioners in Winnipeg/Rural Manitoba (which has a long long list of people you can contact 16 pages). I've attached the link below. Hope it helps! https://vitalstats.gov.mb.ca/getting_married.html
I actually found my officiant through just a google search. Have you tried doing this for officiants in your area? I found that a lot of the vendors that are on here get booked a lot faster because everyone that uses this app tends to look no further than the app.
Also all the officiants that I contacted through weddingwire were all about $200-$300 more expensive then the local ones I found from Google.
