My church fee is $ 250.00. That is for the cermony (free) and the reception with use of the kitchen. I asked my pastor how much did he charge for counseling and officianting and he said $ 150.00 in total but to donate it to the church instead.  I am also a member of that church so that may make a difference.

I’m a member of my church and as of right now, it costs $225 for the ceremony,  and another $175 if you want the organist to play plus a gift to the priest (no set amount). We do have to do premarital counseling, but there isn’t a set fee for that either.

$2000 for the chapel, which included their coordinator (who didn’t really do anything), a kick-ass organist, and a carillonneur!!!!  Can you tell the music was super important to me?

It’s gorgeous so I didn’t bring in any flowers or anything.  Our pastor was free (a friend) but I gave him a gift card to a fancy restaurant, and marriage prep was a few hundred dollars – I can’t remember exactly.

our fee is $300 at a small catholic church. no coordinator, but we have an organist and cantor who charge $150 each. we should be doing a small arrangement to donate to the church but aren’t due to budget constraints, and honestly, the altar won’t be missing it as it’s small and pretty church.
