    I didn’t vote because there wasn’t an option for $0.  My brother did it for us.

    $0 because he’s a family friend. But we are going to donate a few hundred dollars to his church anyway. I live in a medium sized city.

    @LadyMoriarty:  We completely customised our ceremony. We didn’t want anything religious so where we are a JoP is the only other option.

    Ugh I paid waaaay too much $900.  But we needed a rabbi that would do interfaith ceremony and that was the price that we were getting.  He was great though I do have to say.  Was it worth the money? not sure.  But he did hit on my friend at the reception so I did find that to be amusing.

    Our friend did it for us; didn’t cost us anything. He got licensed for a day online.

    I didn’t vote in the poll because my officiant cost $25. Insane, right? The chef/general manager at the place where we were married/had the reception was ordained and only charged $25 to do the ceremony. So my suggestion is to ask your ceremony/reception vunue for suggestions! They see these people all the time, and if there isn’t an insanely good deal, then they can at least point you toward quality!
