questions for brides

I am an officiant working RI , CT, MA but mostly RI. I write personalized weddings . Sometimes when I state my price $300.00 it is high for them . Other times it is a ridiculously small amout. The difference I am sure due to the cost of one wedding over the other. I am wondering what you consider resonable and how you think it should be priced. Thank you in advance.

    This is 1/3 of what we're paying for our Rabbi - so to me seems like a great bargain!

    Our officiant is a JOP, and is customizing our wedding also. Her price is $150.
  • I'm paying $300 to my officiant for rehearsal and ceremony. I think it's about normal
  • I'm paying $600 for my officiant...customized ceremony and rehearsal. I thought that sounded like a fair price.

  • We are paying $400.00 and thought that was a good price.

  • I paid $300 back in 2010 for my JOP.  It was $50 extra for rehearsal at ceremony site.  I'm looking into another one for my friends wedding.  They were in Pawtucket, RI.  I found them from my wedding DJ dj mashane  but they wanted $500.  I'll have been friend contact you if you do newport weddings.  Some people don't want to travel to newport...
  • We are paying 600, but our officiant is traveling from NY for us and will be here for the rehearsal and wedding day. We needed an officiant that also spoke Russian :-)
  • That's weird. When my fiance and I met with you you said that by law you couldn't charge anything more than $150. 

    You were very much on the low end of our spectrum. The other two officiants we met with were charging around $300.

    I should note here that price did not affect our decision. We just found someone that was more "our style."
