Yes, our event planners provide several levels of service including complete wedding planning. Ask your Hall’s consultant about this service.
- Is it proper to ask the pastor what is his fee for performing our wedding service?
Yes, but don’t be surprised if his response is to suggest a donation or that (s)he is not comfortable suggesting an amount. If you do not get a direct response, check with other recently-married friends for suggestions. Many experts say that if you received premarital counseling or had several meetings prior to the ceremony, you would provide the officiate with a more generous gift.
