Tips and Frequently Asked Questions
Ask the Wedding Officiant the Right Questions
To avoid any confusion, make sure to ask specific questions and details ahead of time. Things like: Do you charge for travel? Do you allow flash photography during the ceremony? Is the rehearsal included in your fee?
Massachusetts Justices of the Peace can perform a marriage ceremony anywhere within the state, and are usually willing to travel to where the wedding is taking place.
Fees will range from $100, for a simple ceremony at the Justice Of The Peace
office, to as high as $400 if the justice has to travel, or if it also includes a rehearsal.
