I’m in Canada and I’m not sure if its any different in the states, but I was just curious as to the average cost of an officiant to do the ceremony. I just got quoted $350 for the ceremony which includes all the paper work. I was kinda expecting more along the lines of $100, so I guess my question is… what is the going rate for an officiant these days?

The quotes that I’ve been receiving are in the neighborhood of $500

Definitely depends on your area. I’ve seen anything from $200 to $600 in Arizona. My officiant is $350. I think $100 would be like if you had a friend of the family do it.
ETA: our officiant’s price includes the rehearsal and would include paperwork if we needed it.
