Wedding Vows & Ceremony Discussions

How much is your pastor charging?

Hi all,

I'm not sure if I'm posting this on the right board, but I didn't know where else this question would fit.

I was wondering how much each of your pastors are charging you for your rehersal and ceremony. Are they requesting a donation or is there a set fee?

I wanted to compare other fees/donations to my pastor's because I feel I'm being over charged. I'm a little upset about this because it's my pastor's FIRST ever wedding (she's a very new pastor). She's charging us $100 for the rehersal and $150 for the ceremony. I thought all services such as funerals, hospital visits, and weddings are all normal church functions. Why are we paying SO much when she's already getting a *pretty nice* pastor's salary. And when I say pretty nice, it's a lot better than most around my area.

I really hate to complain about something like this, but it's been bothering me. We have a VERY tight budget. I just wanted to get an idea of what everyone else is being charged to figure out if this is normal or not.

Thanks!! :-)
