I wrote this on another thread, but thoguht it would bet more action here…
K, here is the scenario:
Because of a very long story, we have ended up at a church that is neither of our denominations to get married. The church we were getting married at was downtown, so they charged an exorbatant amount of money to get married there. We were now moved to a church outside of downtown and the price is the same. $2000!!!!!
This is not our church, this price includes the minister, a “day of coordinator” for the church, the organist & the rehersal ceremony. What I really need to know, is since we are paying a HUGE amount of money to the church, do we still need to tip them?
I’m not sure what the right thing to do is?

I’m not sure if it is just me… but that is a TON of money to pay a church!! Our church just expects a donation, some money for the priest and musician. I wouldn’t tip them if I had to pay that much though I don’t think…

I know, it’s riduculous in my opinion too, however all the churches downtown have figured out that weddings are a business, and have started charging for their beautiful churches.. so when this one moved to a location a little further away, it took it’s riduculous price with it…
I don’t want to be rude or offend, but I don’t want to have to shell out more money.. this is a huge chunk of my budget already…

I’d say that if you feel close at all to the pastor then tip him and definitely tip musicians, but other than that I wouldn’t stress too much about it.

I wouldn’t tip if you are already paying that much! Our church is free but we are going to give a donation and we were told that any tips would just go into the church fund…

Thanks everyone. I didn’t plan on giving anymore, but I just wanted to make sure I wasn’t being crazy…
