What time is the wedding going until?  If they would have to get home later than like 10 pm I think you should cover both.  If not I think you can just tell him that you’re having budget restrictions coming up and you can only cover friday night or something.

I think the proper thing is to pay for both nights. How far along is the venue from their home town and how late is the wedding?

@michelejosephine:   With that long of a drive, I would definitely cover the second night.

Our wedding is 3 hours from where the pastor lives and not a great drive to do at night. He is going to be there w/his wife Friday (rehearsal) and Saturday (ceremony is at 5:30) and we are covering both nights plus giving him $200. I figure thats fair to cover gas and the premarital sessions he’s done for us….?

If the officiant is running the rehearsal then it is proper to cover both nights of his or her stay.
