Did you buy a gift for the person that married you or your attendants?

I would like to buy a small gift for our preacher to thank him for marrying us~ and my two sisters that will be my bridesmaids. What kind of gifts did you buy for your attendants?

  • I bought charm bracelets for my attendants. I didn't get anything for the lady who married us.

  • Attendants get a gift.
    Minister gets a monetary gift. Usually about $200.

  • We bought pearls in the clam with a necklace for the bridesmaids and the pianist and female singer. We bought tie tacks and cuff links for the groomsmen, organist, male singer, and officiant.

  • I paid the minister, I gave my attendants the jewelry to wear during the ceremony (it was a nice necklace/earring set that could be worn at other times)

  • The minister gets cash. Jewelry to wear in the wedding is a nice gift for attendants.

  • I didn't have any attendants and the JOP I'm sure got whatever her salary is. That's sort of part of her job......We just paid for the marriage license and whatever fees we needed to.

  • Yes. We bought gifts for our attendants, our officiant, my mother (our only remaining parent) and my grandmother (our only remaining grandparent).
