Would a gift be better?  It avoids the money issue but also shows thanks and graitude.  You could always make a donation in his/your aunt’s name as a thank you.

I’m having my uncle marry us. He was very surprised and seemed honored that we asked.  We’ll be getting him a gift.  Just not sure exactly what yet.

Instead of a monetary honorarium, I would suggest a more personalised gift since he’s your uncle. He probably doesn’t expect anything, but a token of appreciation would be nice.

I agree with others on the gift. Our officiant is my FI’s best friend, and we’re paying for his hotel room for the wedding, since he’s poor like us, ha. But that’s obviously a different situation.

give him a personal gift. you could also make a small donation to the congregation he’s associated with in his name.
