Here’s a question you’re never sure whether or not to ask your wedding officiant: Does the minister stay for the reception?
A lot of ministers will stay for the reception. It’s always nice to be asked. However, I do not stay for the reception because I have to get home to my family. Plus, sometimes I think people are a little uncomfortable drinking and partying with the minister!
Unless your minister is a friend of the family, I say it’s nice to ask, but don’t expect them to stay.
