Our officients daughter has agreed to sing 3 songs for our ceremony.
She said we can pay her whatever we think is fair and she isnt picky.
We defiantly want to pay her for her time!
I was wondering what is a fair price to pay someone to sing for your wedding ceremony?

Btw the singer is not a professional, but she does have a beautiful voice.

@candy08: I would think it would depend on a few factors: quality, experience, and duration. Has she done other gigs before?

We hired someone to play for our ceremony and cocktail hour and he was $500 for the cocktail hour, and $750 for the cocktail hour + ceremony. He played 3-4 songs during the ceremony (2 processional songs, recessional and song in the ceremony)

i would think $100 is fair.

@candy08: All of our singers considered it a wedding present since they would have been invited regardless, so we payed them each $50. Two were music teachers, one is a violin player, and one was a high school student.
I will add the violin player did all the processional music, high school student did all the recessional music, and the music teachers sang a duet for the unity candle.

@housebee: She has never sung for a wedding before . She sings in a college choir and has done several solos. Never anything professional.

I’ve sung for many weddings, and I either do it as a gift to the bride (if we are good friends) or I charge about $150. I sing at the rehearsal (always a good idea), and the ceremony. People most often request Ave Maria, so that’s pretty easy for me.
I sang three songs at my friend’s cousin’s wedding, and I should have charged more. I had to learn every song, and coordinate with the church music director, and travel on top of it. Now I will say $150 per 1 or 2 songs, probably. If I already know the songs, I would be flexible.

We are paying $150 for our ceremony singer. I’d say $100-$150.

@candy08: I’d say between $100-$200, unless you need to rent equipment/pay for transportation/etc.
