  • We gave our Pastor $50 for officiating at our wedding in 1991. With inflation it might be a little more now.
  • If you’re married at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, it’s actually considered inappropriate to pay even a cent. If you feel like making a donation to the Church out of gratitude, I doubt it would be refused, but there’s really no need to. I’m sure any of our Church leaders would be happy to perform the ceremony, and since they’re all volunteers and have full-time jobs elsewhere, they’re never going to ask for a donation—nor would they ever personally accept one.
