- Wedding: March 2013
I need some help/suggestions of roman catholic churches either in Manhattan or northern NJ for my wedding ceremony. I would prefer Manhattan since my reception will be in Manhattan. I’ve been doing my research online and it seems most churches in NY charge a fee which was a surprise to me. I knew that churches usually have a suggested donation but I didn’t think it would be so much. I’m talking $1500 up to $2500. And that doesn’t include fees for the cantor and pianist. I’m trying to save where I can but it’s getting really hard. My Fiance tells me not to stress over it but I can’t help it. I feel like between the two of us, I’m the only one stressing about anything which leads me to wonder if he’s even thinking about the wedding at all (but this is another issue and topic). Anyway, I’m hoping someone out there would be able to help me regarding this. Can you let me know which churches have a reasonable fee ($1000 or less)?
We are (I am) planning on going to visit some of the churches to talk to the priests and get a better idea on what is required and etc. But it would be helpful if I can narrow it down to a handful of churches.
Thank you all in advance!
