Think you can make $100k to officiate a wedding?


Boosie BadAzz does…


The Louisiana rapper got ordained online this week, announcing his new status as an ordained minister via social media, saying: 


“If you want Boosie to marry you, let me know.


If you want Boosie to marry you, I got my muthaf*ckin’ license. If you want Boosie to marry you, y’all holla at me. This my new thing. If you want me to marry you, holla at me. Big boss sh*t. I’m marrying couples now. $75 to $100K. I’m marrying couples now. It’s official. I’m certified.” (via @theshaderoom



This is, of course, an outrageous amount of money. 


Wedding boom or not, we don’t know many couples who could pay this much for Boosie’s services (even if there wasn't a pandemic going on). And it doesn't sound like he's had an takers yet.


The average price for a wedding officiant in 2022 will be about $600, according to Wedding Forward – with first time officiants expected to charge a smaller fee while they gain experience. 


Still, we hope Boosie inspires other people to get ordained online and start marrying people... for a reasonable fee. 


It’s good to see celebrities spreading love –  Cardi B got ordained to officiate a same-sex wedding on her show back in October (with the help of Raven-Symoné). Not to mention Adele, Harry Styles, and Lisa Vanderpump (ordained with AMM in 2014) have all performed a wedding or two, including many within the LGBTQ+ community. Heck, even Stephen Colbert was ordained by American Marriage Ministries back in 2013.
