I have been thinking about asking my grandpa if he would be willing to become an ordained minister to perform our wedding ceremony. I know that he would be honored to do it however, is it dificult to become an ordained minister?

I don’t believe so, I think you can even have it done over the internet. My grandfather is also ordained and performing our ceremony, it’s a really nice personal touch 🙂
ETA: I did a google search and found a great page with tons of info! They even have a section for people who are getting married and want a friend/family member to perform the ceremony: http://www.amfellow.org/

I don’t think its difficult and you can do it all online – i dont really know the process but I went to a wedding recently and they had his sister become ordained just to do the wedding.
she used this site and she said it took less than 10 minuts and $30 bucks

My brother-in-law became ordained online to perform our ceremony. It took him all of 5 minutes at the monastery website listed above.
Just double check the laws in your state/county or call the town clerk’s office and they will let you know anything else you need to do 🙂

Definitely double-check your state law. In some states, using someone ordained online will invalidate the marriage. And if it did, you would not get any notice when you got your marriage certificate. Instead, it would likely be determined years later, when the status of the marriage was in litigation for some reason–e.g., death, divorce, or bankrupcy. And at that point, it would be too late to resolve any problems.
