Officiant is a vendor- etiquette on food?
We've decided to hire an officiant for our wedding. She is not a minister or a priest, but does lovely, personalized ceremonies. I've met with her and like her immensely, and apparently after meeting with my FI and I, we've become her "gold standard" on brides and grooms (laid back/not a high strung bridezilla, polite, etiquette conscious, plus when we all met at a coffee shop, FI bought her drink without any word from me or her- he's just that kind of gentleman). I'm having a minor issue, but it needs to be addressed.
Our DJ and photographer are being provided with a meal during the luncheon reception. Should we offer to have the officiant at the reception and feed her with the other guests? She is a vendor, but all I have to go on are my siblings weddings- sister was married by a priest who was at the RD, don't know about reception. Brother was married by a friend of both his and SIL's, and was at RD and reception. Thoughts?
