Costs vary greatly depending on the type of ceremony. A more straightforward event, such as an elopement, will cost less than a more significant wedding ceremony. Officiants frequently perform these types of weddings:
Traditional wedding
Commitment ceremony
Vow renewal
Services included
At its simplest, a wedding ceremony consists of the signing of the marriage certificate as well as an exchange of vows. Many officiants refer to this as an elopement or a basic package. Expanding the ceremony to include religious or symbolic rituals, readings, or other elements may affect the cost of the service.
Wedding rehearsal
Attendance at the wedding rehearsal is not always included in the cost of the officiation fees. Ask the officiant whether their participation in the wedding rehearsal will incur additional charges.
Guest count
Larger weddings often mean higher fees. Smaller, more intimate weddings may reduce the cost of the officiant's services.
Customized ceremony
Customization can increase costs. Many officiants offer a standard ceremony template. At the pre-wedding meeting, the officiant will ask whether the couple plans to write their own vows and how much input they have about the rest of the wording and flow of the ceremony. Additional planning meetings and other communication can add up to a higher overall cost.
Travel to and from rehearsal and ceremony sites may affect the cost of the service. Finding an officiant in the same city or town may eliminate any applicable travel costs.
Length of ceremony
Ceremonies can be short and sweet or expansive and all-encompassing. Typically, the longer the ceremony, the higher the officiant fee. Add-ons Sound systems, wireless microphones, and videography services are add-ons that some officiants offer. If you want these extras, it will also increase the overall cost.
Prices range from $350-$500
