The simple answer is that wedding officiants officiate ceremonies joining two individuals into marriage with one-another. They perform readings and the recital of vows for wedding ceremonies.
But; as is with most service professionals, the majority of work goes on behind the scenes.
According to most wedding officiants who do custom ceremonies, it takes time to build a solid foundation for that beautiful but, oh so short, 20 minute wedding ceremony.
Many couples choose to write their own personal vows to each other which the officiant will incorporate into the ceremony.
“Readings that express the true feelings of a wedding couple help create not only beautiful, but meaningful memories that will beyond doubt – last a lifetime.” Garry, Florida Minister
Wedding Officiant Price & Fee Guide (Sarasota Fl Area)

Most officiant’s fees fall into a very tight range between $245 & $265, but there are exceptions…
What the basics cover
At its very core wedding officiants officiate wedding ceremonies and sign marriage certificates, anything else can and many times is considered an extra – read on…
While some Sarasota area officiants will preside over a ceremony from Tampa all the way south to Port Charlotte without asking for any additional money – most officiants work a much smaller area, charging “extra” travel fees for anything out of their “small service area.”
Additional fees for travel expenses are usually in the $50 to $100 range, which is very understandable given the extra travel time and gas expense to many wedding venues.
Other Officiant extras
Extra fees will be required for the officiant to attend a rehearsal and are usually in the $100 to $150 range, Ask your officiant.
Additional fees may be required for:
- Writing unique wedding vows
- A sand ceremony (or any special ceremony within the wedding ceremony)
