We had our ushers wear tuxes too, and the ring bearers were in mini tuxes (so cute!). We had a pastor, and he was in his robes, but I’ve been to weddings where the officiant just wears a dress pants and jacket, not a tux with the tie, vest, etc.

We gave bouts. to the ones you mentioned, to the ushers, the ring bearers, my husband’s grandfather, and one of my uncles that was hosting our reception with my aunt. Did not give one to the pastor, but I think I asked him and he said no thanks, so that may be up to your particular officiant. Again, I’ve been to weddings where the officiant has worn a bout, but I believe those were ones where the officiant was the father of one of the couple.

My male cousin had a bout at one of our cousin’s wedding where we were program distributors, but that would depend on if you’re having programs, and if you’re having anyone hand them out. He just wore nice clothes tho, no tux or suit there.

@jbbs1222:  I did not read the other posts and we are not doing tuxes. BUT when I got married the first time, aside from the groomsmen and my dad (his dad refused to wear one) my mom wanted the minister to wear one. We paid for it though. As far as bouts, I think you give one to whom ever you want to have one. My mom wanted all of my aunts and uncles to have them as well. I had a lot of family memebers wondering around wearing them.
