I am looking at the ministers/officiant to get to marry me and my FI and many of them have packages where they can just go to the ceremony for a price and they can go to the ceremony and the rehersal dinner for a much higher price. Do you know if they need to be at the rehersal dinner or can I try to avoid that cost? Thank you!

I don’t see any reason why they’d need to go to the rehearsal dinner. Just the rehearsal. There’s no way I’d pay someone to let me buy them food!

No there is no need for them to come to the rehearsal as long as they meet with you before the wedding to talk about the order of things and how everything will go.

Not doing the rehearsal was a deal-breaker for me, but it was only $25 more to find a minister that did both.
I would say DO hire someone for both, just because its sooo much less stress on you – you get to meet with this person the night before and do a run through pretty much exactly how it will be the next day, and it will make you so much more comfortable! Also, if you don’t have the minister/officiant at the rehearsal think about who will be running it – just make sure it’s not going to be you!
