Many churches have a “required donation” which can vary widely from place to place and from one denomination to another. On the low end (rural areas and small towns in places with a low cost of living), around $200-$250 might be typical. On the high end (major cities, tourist destinations, cathedral churches, etc.) it can go to $1000+, although that’s a little unusual.

Maybe think about pegging your church donation to something else in your wedding budget: is it worth as much to you as your gown? Your flowers? etc. and donate a comparable amount.

I would think anywhere from $100-$200 would suffice since you are on a small budget and he said it would be your choice.
