it depends if they attend a rehearsal 

Marriage Commissioner rates are established by the Vital Statistics Agency and are as follows-
**wedding ceremony = $75.00 + $9.00 HST = $84.00  (from this I send $34.00 to Victoria to register the marriage license;
**wedding ceremony mileage = $2.00 ($.50/K return)
**wedding rehearsal = $25.00
**rehearsal mileage = $2.00 ($.50/K return)
Total cost = $113.00 (cash or cheque payable to officiants name)

My cousin, who got married about 12 years ago, had her pastor as the officiant. The church recommended a donation of $250. I imagine it’s probably a bit more now.

@meetmethere2013:  I believe our officiant is costing $220-250 w/rehersal (without marriage liscence).  We are having a non-denominational ceremony in BC. Not sure why he’s higher than what nativedesires quoted from vital statistics.  I thought $250 wasn’t that pricey for how popular he is, so I’m not too worried about paying a bit more.
