CT law does not dictate a specific fee for JPs to use in doing wedding ceremonies and thus I’ve found that different people charge very different amounts. For myself, I ask that the couple pay me whatever they feel is fair and reasonable for them. I’d much rather do a wedding on my front steps for $20 than have a couple not get married because they can’t afford to. That said, if you are a millionaire, feel free to buy me a boat.
As a general range of what I typically get paid, for an informal ceremony at city hall or a public park I typically get from $100-$300, while for a more formal affair I typically get $300-$500. But again, these are just rough estimates, not hard rules and I’m happy to work with you on making things fit within your wedding budget. Generally speaking, I’d just like to cost more than the broccoli haha.
