Yes, something for the celebrant in addition to the church donation is in order. It kind of depends on where you are and how well you know him, but I think we did either $150 or $200 for ours?

@rsandya:  Yes. $100-$300 is appropriate depending on the scale and expense of your wedding.

We are giving the suggested donation of $250. However we are getting married in Sonoma, so I think living and overall costs are higher.
