There's no denying your wedding officiant plays a very important role in your special day. (In the case of minimonies and elopements, it could be the only role!) From helping you plan a beautiful ceremony to offering emotional support along the way, there are lots of reasons you might want to honor them.

Of course, you don't have to pick out a gift for your wedding officiant. If you're already paying them for their part in your celebration, a simple thank-you card is more than enough. However, if you've enlisted a close friend or family member to help you tie the knot, a wedding officiant gift may be more appropriate.

Feel free to take inspiration from other wedding party presents on your hunt for an officiant gift. If you're still not sure where to start, not to worry! We've gathered our top wedding officiant gift ideas below. These picks will work for hired professionals and loved ones alike.
