I think it depends all on the officiant and your location.  I’ve heard of expensive ones before.  When I was originally going to get married in Orlando, the officiant I chose was $200.  

When I did actually get married, it was part of a package, so I don’t know what the actual cost for that was.

If you use your local pastor it should not be expensive and could even be free.

Yeah, it depends on the location. In Australia, a civil celebrant is usually from about $3-600, while a priest may be cheaper if you’re part of their church.

Totally depends on your needs.  Sometimes it’s by donation.  A marriage commissioner in BC Canada does it for $84.00 plus mileage to wherever you need them to go.

Before my aunt offered to officiate our wedding for free, we were looking at paying someone $75. That’s about average around here.

Not if you’re in the military or marrying someone in the military.:-)

I’m trying to find the best price, but so far the cheapest is $250, not including the rehearsal.
