Jewish Brides

 We just spoke with a rabbi who we REALLY liked, but charges $900 for the ceremony and pre-marital counseling... How does that price compare to what you guys are paying? It seems a little steep, but at the same time, I don't want to skimp out on the entire reason we're having this party! Ugh! Why are things so expensive??!!

    Mine is charging $650. And I thought that was pricey. However, I seem to hear $600 is the norm.

    I just looked in your planning bio and saw your rabbi... He quoted us more than $650, did you talk him down or has his price just gone up?

    My rabbi is charging me $600, he knows us from our conversion class. Our fee is part of his discretionary fund, he decides what our donation is used for.....I am ok with our price.

    When I was looking around, I got quotes anywhere from $350 - $600 and some charged extra if they had to drive further

    My parents are members of the temple so I think we're just expected to make a donation. The ceremony and reception are both at the temple so that may be why there isn't a charge.

    I have heard most rabbis are around $500.  We're doing our wedding at the temple, and its $1095 for use of the sanctuary for the wedding and that includes the rabbi & cantor for the ceremony.
