i don’t know what proper etiquette is on such a thing…  but i have no intentions of buying for mine.  if you buy for these guys – where do you draw the line with vendors?

if you don’t have a personal relationship with them, i would think it would not be neccessary.  my pastor is not only a family friend for decades, but we’re actually getting married on her wedding anniversary!  so i do plan on doing something special for her and her partner, but i am not getting her a corsage to pin on.

I don’t plan on it. It would only be for the groom, groomsmen, and the males in our immediate family.

I don’t think so. I’m not. I mean it sounds like your priest will not need one because he has a huge robe on top of his clothes and you never know he could be super casually dressed under neath it….

I don’t think you have to.  The priest can’t wear one on his robe, the musical director will probably just take it off for the next wedding, and the singer won’t expect one.  I went to a catholic wedding in which the had the sam “key players” as you did – neither of them had one on.

The priest will probably wear blacks and collar afterwards, not a suit, and so he’ll definitely stand out. I don’t think a bout needs to be bought for any of them – unless they’re guests who will be attending the reception (not including the priest). Otherwise, consider them vendors. Just because they’re in the church doesn’t mean they need to be distinguished.
