- Wedding: September 2014
I am getting married in a little over 2 months an dam having doubts about my officiant…my fiance’ and I have decided to go with my previous youth pastor to officiate our wedding but I’m starting to have doubts. We are getting married in South Carolina but our officiant currently lives in Texas. He said he would not charge us to do the ceremony since I know him but we would have to pay for his travel to and from (including gas, hotel room one night each way, and hotel in SC). It will end up costing us around $800 for him to get there and back to do our ceremony. While it means a lot to me to have him officiate our ceremong it is very expensive. I have looked up officiants in the area of where we are getting married and it’s less than $200. On top of the cost, I have been emailing my old youth pastor about the wedding and he hasn’t responded in a while. I have emailed him twice within the past couple of months and got no response. I have had to find him on facebook and message him about responding to my emails. It is getting frustrating since I still have not heard back from him about any of the details or anything else.
Would y’all keep him since it would be special or just book someone else?
Thanks in advance!
