I’m surprised by that…most officiants I’ve researched will do a basic sentimental, no religion ceremony whether they are a Justice of the Peace or a minister. They all customize their ceremonies. Most of their fees are $150 or so unless they have additional travel time to the location.

Maybe the venue you are choosing will be able to recommend someone..?

You can actually have ANYONE you want become ordained through the Universal Life Church and they can legally perform your legal wedding ceremony. 

Here is their website:  http://www.themonastery.org/

We looked into doing this and having my mother perform our ceremony.  We may go a different route, but they have state-by-state listing on the applicable laws (some states are “stricter” than others) but they provide all the documentation necessary and your “officiant” will have to file papers with the county/state BEFORE and AFTER the ceremony.  But it’s completely legitimate.  Your profile indicates North Carolina…. so I pulled that state’s requirements for an officiant, but it lists requirements for all 50 states.  http://www.themonastery.org/tools/wedding_laws/?wide=usa&narrow=north-carolina

Good Luck!

Hi! I am getting married a week before yall next year. I have been shocked at the prices for officiants. MissKK and Whomajigi, can you tell me how much your officiants cost.  I see that Rev Gerald is in Gboro..did he charge extra to come to Raleigh? Thanks for the help!
