That seems high to me.


I was looking at a service including rehearsal and it was right under $350 - maybe its lower bc i am in NY  but that seems high, espcially for no rehearsal!

Mine is $300 and it includes rehearsal. $650 seems pretty high, when I was searching, they ranged anywhere from $250-500.

We are using my FI's Grandpa! He is ordained, and has married other family members. Yay he is free!! But we will get him a good gift... especially after seeing how much you girls are paying!

I'd say average seems to be in the $300 range. 


Our officiant is $550.  Well he himself doesn't charge a penny, but the "organization" he belongs to charges the fee for paperwork and what not.  Regardless, we knew we really wanted this guy at whatever cost.

We are also using our pastor so I believe it will be free.
