- Wedding: June 2012
So Mr. Bowling and I met with an officiant yesterday! We don’t belong to a church, so we were planning on interviewing a few people. Well my photographer recommeded a reverend. So we called and set up a meeting. He is super nice – so much so that no more interviews are required! His first thing was – “This is your wedding, so we can do whatever you want” – MUSIC to my ears!
Now to the advice part. I asked him what his rates/fees were, and he said that he has a full time job, and he performs weddings because he likes them, and he gets to meet a lot of wonderful people. So he told us that we could pay him whatever we deemed necessary.
So – what is a good price to pay an officiant? Mr. Bowling and I have differing opinions, but they’re both do-able. Fellow Bees – please help us decide how much to pay! I don’t want to pay too little, or too much – what should we do?
