Benefits of having your wedding, quince or sweet sixteen in a church:
- Infrastructure is in place. Seating, altar, organ/piano, PA system (typically), rooms to get ready, even sufficient parking… basically all you have to do is add your own flowers/decorations/etc and you’re ready to go.
- Cost is relatively low. Most churches charge a set fee (okay, some call it a “donation,” but it’s still a fee) for hosting the service. For most churches, the cost to use the church ranges from $200 to $400; other services – like music, facilitation, and altar servers – vary from church to church.
- Weather is no issue. Sound obvious? It is. But if it rains the day of your outdoor service… you may wish you were snug and dry.
