Also, if you are just hiring a rando, check out tumbtack.com for your officiant. We used it and got about 10 responses/quotes. We ended up choosing an older man who completely customizes the ceremony for you and is $180 including rehearsal and consult. It ranged from 100-400 though.

SoontobeMrsKCee:  That is crazy. I live in Houston so the prices are high as well, but the highest I was quoted for an officiant was $500. The cheapest limo service would have cost us $800+ for four hours, as well. I am having my sister drive me to the venue (she has a brand new Explorer, tons of room and it’s nice and clean). My other BMs are carpooling themselves. They don’t care. No one will see us anyway. I am focusing on finding a nice ride for the getaway car. Saves a ton of money this way.

$800 is about what it costs for a nice wedding limo.  Unfortunately you have to pay for 4 hours- we only used ours for about an 1.5, but we had to pay for the full 4.  

If you aren’t so picky on a super fancy limo with fancy service (ours had a red carpet entrance, champange toasts, ridiculously fancy interior, and the traiditional white exterior), you can get a regular black limo or just rent a really nice car for much less.  That is what I wanted to do, but it turns out that was the one thing my husband really cared about, so we splurged for him 🙂
