31 Days, 31 Questions About Weddings...Help Me Please! Day 10: The Officiant

Day 10 Question:

How do we go about asking a friend to be an officiant (we have someone in mind), and what are the guidelines for a gift or payment to him?


  1. We had a very small wedding in our home...just the two of us, my daughter...who took pictures, and the Minister...a friend...officiated. We paid him $150. It was a fabulous wedding.

  2. We had a Judge officiate at our wedding. It was small, about 50 people and he was paid $150.00 also. We wrote our own vows and it was beautiful. We are a blended family and all children participated in the readings as well as lighting a unity candle. Good Luck!!!


We love to hear from you!
