How Much Does a Wedding Officiant Cost?

Nearly every state requires an officiant to legally recognize a wedding, and the term “officiant” refers to anyone who’s legally able to perform a wedding ceremony and sign a marriage license.  This can range anywhere from a religious pastor to a professional celebrant who does it for a living.  The costs will all depend on who you’re using, their experience, where you’re getting married, if premarital counseling is involved, if they are needed for a rehearsal, your geographical location and the time and effort spent on the wedding.
