When opting to get married inside a church or a chapel, costs are usually a lot cheaper than other wedding venues may be. But there are often other rules that may need to be accounted for in the planning process.

Cost:

Traditionally, small wedding parties can rent out a chapel or a church for around $400, the larger the party the larger the bill. Parties with over 300 guests can typically cost anywhere from $900- 3,000 depending on the style of the building and its location.

Decorations:

Most churches and chapels will offer to decorate the entire building for you- for a fee. This can run anywhere from $600- a few thousand dollars at any given time. Also depending on the size of the building and the style of decor that you would like.

Restrictions:

Some chapels and churches require that all shoulder and arms be covered. This is another $30 -50 charge to add or alter sleeves on a wedding gown- this also includes sleeves for bridesmaids and the mothers of the bride and groom!

Discounts:

Almost all chapels and churches offer a large discount to those that are members to the church, helping to alleviate some of the stress your wedding budget may have added to you!

Getting married in a church or a chapel is a very special wedding venue to incorporate into your big day. Taking into account wedding costs and venue rules is another important aspect of venue hunting.
