My fiancé asked his childhood pastor to officiate our wedding. He hasn’t seen him in close to 10 years but always really liked him. The pastor said he was glad to do it and when my fiancé asked about fees he said he didn’t want to be paid. His reasoning was that he knows money is tight starting out married right out of college and was honored to do it for us.
What is the right etiquette in this situation? Should we just get him a nice gift? Or put cash in a thank you card anyway? If we should do a gift please share some thoughtful ideas.
