I admit–I don’t have a whole lot of experience in this area, having not attended church on a regular basis in quite some time–but it seems to me that the best idea would be to ask your parents what to do–or–don’t invite them.  You’re not a regular there, so it’s not a big deal, at least, to me, and unless your parents regularly attend, I don’t see the need.

Im Having my assistant Pastor marry MIchael and I and I am inviting both of the other Pastors to come and be a part of it. The lead pastor will be invited and if He comes I wont pay him… But my church does charge a clean up fee… but I dont think if they were ivited they would expect money, there supposed to give you a gift..

I put your situation in terms of my church & from what I can figure, if the senior pastor is not marrying you then you wouldn’t pay him anything. Also, I don’t think it’d be mandatory to invite him. We invited almost all of our pastors but that’s cause we’re both close to them. I’m sure that there are plenty of weddings done at our church where our senior pastor doesn’t do the wedding & isn’t invited. If you wanted though you could definitely gift the church for letting y’all marry there… Maybe a small donation?..

@agirlwithdreams7 You could always send them or drop by a thank you gift afterward for letting you use the church for free. I am sure they won’t think anything of not being invited :o)
