Do you know your officiant well?  If it is "your" regular pastor, I think it’s good to invite them and spouse (if they have one).  They can always decline.

I don’t know the official etiquette, but it just seems polite to invite them.  We are inviting everyone that is in the wedding (pastor included) and their spouses.

We invited everyone in the wedding party (including a fiancee or spouse) as well as our priest and his wife.  It may just be because I’ve known him since I was 7, but to me it seems that he/she should be invited.

Yes- etiquette-wise the officiant gets invited. Emily Post says you should also invite the officiant’s spouse, but I feel like that might be a little much unless you know the officiant and/or his spouse.  I actually just found this out- I gave my Future Mother-In-Law a list of guests for the Rehearsal Dinner and she was like, oh you forgot the minister and his wife. and so the Rehearsal Dinner grows…I swear it is turning into a mini-wedding! it is always good to get on the officiant’s good side though!
