Our is 300 plus 100 to travel 40 minutes in Canada, I thought the travel fee was a bit much. They want 200 more to rehearse, I’m probably not going to bother. I really expected they were more like 150 before we started looking but I’ve seen some crazy numbers.

Ours is $875 in Philadelphia. It includes a completely customized ceremony and travel fees. I was also shocked at the prices. One officiant I contacted charges $1600! She was so awesome, but we couldn’t justify it. The lowest I could find was $450, and the ceremony wasn’t as customized.

I’m in Southern California and am paying $395. This doesn’t include the rehearsal dinner which would cost another $100. 😐

OMG now I’m feeling like I paid A LOT! My was $925 (NYC) w no rehearsal but I think unless you have a really intricate wedding or a huge bridal party they’re no longer necessary. The majority of my quotes were $700 but the guy I hired is so talented and organized he was worth the extra money.

daydream0324 :  $300. Near Toronto Canada. Doesnt include rehearsal but includes any kind of ceremony we want (we can chose form the ones he has or make our own) + symbolic handfasting. No travel fees as he is lical to the area where we are getting married.this is a humanist offciciant.
