Holy crap!

The officiants in our area are typically about $250, and I thought that THAT was expensive based on what I’ve heard from the Bee! (Lots of people say they gave $100ish.)

Hmmmm, this seems pretty high to me.  If you’re a member of a house of worship the clergy there usually does it for a ‘donation’ to the congregation that is much smaller than that…..but I’m really not sure if you’re not a member of officiant’s congregation.

@rubia12:  Your priest charges? I was raised Catholic and priests NEVER charged and I am converting to Greek Orthodox and the priests NEVER charge. Donations are appreciated and given. So idk b/c this sounds odd to me I have never heard of a priest requiring money to marry you.

@EncoreBridetoBe:  Ditto.

The only charges I’m receiving is for use of the church and that’s only $450. My priest’s services are free, but we are encouraged to give a donation to him and the congregation as a whole. $1000? Wowza. Maybe contact your congregation/diocese directly to see what they can do.

@rubia12:  Hi I am looking for an imam to perform an interfaith nikah and see that you at least found one imam, though charging $1000.  I was wondering if you could provide the contact information to me.  Did you decide to go with him, or were you able to find someone for a more reasonable fee?
