I’m not sure what is customary in the church, but we paid our minister $150 (that is what she charged). It also probably depends on where you’re at…

Just give whatever you’re comfortable with, like the pastor said. 

I would probably give him $200.00, maybe more.

I agree with $200. Our pastor did all of our pre-marital sessions and the ceremony at no charge but we gave a $200 honorarium – he was blown away by the gesture… I’m sure most couples just say “thank you.”
