How Much Does a Wedding Planner Cost?

post E-mail post Post   Comments (60)

While many bridal consultants used to charge a percentage of the wedding budget -- usually 10 to 20 percent -- most now prefer to use an hourly, or more commonly, a package rate. Most planners have at least three types of packages: day of service, consulting and full-service planning.

Typical costs:

  • For about $1,500, a day-of planner will help create a wedding timeline, confirm with vendors and handle the wedding day.
  • For about $3,700, a planner will handle the wedding day and offer planning advice and guidance, but will make the couple do the pre-wedding footwork, such as making phone calls.
  • For about $5,000, a full-service planner will plan the wedding and handle most details and the wedding day. That rate sometimes goes much higher -- possibly $10,000 or more for an in-demand planner with ten years or more experience, according to i-do Weddings[1] .
  • The cost varies greatly by region. The average total cost for a wedding consultant is $3,636 in the northeast and $2,635 in the south. The national average is $3,262, according to The Association of Bridal Consultants[2] .

What should be included:
  • For a day-of package, a planner usually will confirm with vendors, help the couple create a wedding-day timeline and handle wedding-day details from start to finish.
  • For a consulting package, a planner might recommend venues and vendors, offer advice on colors and style, provide etiquette advice and help the couple stay on track with their planning -- but will not handle legwork and small details. On the wedding day, though, the planner will interact with vendors and make sure the day goes smoothly.
  • A typical full-service planners help set the style and colors, help find ceremony and reception venues, recommend vendors, accompany the couple to food and cake tastings and screen vendor contracts. Some will even send invitations and track RSVPs. On the wedding day, the planner usually puts in a full day troubleshooting, handling last-minute details and keeping the event on schedule.
  • Tip: Since packages and services vary from planner to planner, it is important to clarify in writing exactly which services are included.
Additional costs:
  • While it is not expected, some couples tip a wedding planner about15 percent for excellent service -- but a gift of a restaurant or spa gift certificate is more common than a cash tip.
Discounts:
  • One option is do-it-yourself planning, using online checklists or a book as a guide. TheKnot.com[3] offers a 12-month checklist.
  • Half.com[4] offers a number of used books on wedding planning, and Amazon[5] offers new books.
  • Some brides link up with another local bride through message boards on sites such as TheKnot.com[6] and trade day-of coordination services. Trusting a non-professional can be risky, but it saves money.
  • Tip: According to the Association for Wedding Professionals International[7] , many wedding professionals can lower their fees if you bargain.
  • Some wedding planners can get discounts from vendors, and most pass those along to their clients.
  • Wedding planners sometimes give a 10 percent discount for couples who get married in a slow month, such as January or February.
Shopping for a wedding planner:
  • To find a wedding planner, ask friends or other vendors -- such as bridal salons, photographers or caterers. Or, The Association of Bridal Consultants[8] can provide referrals to local consultants. When you get a few names, call or set up meetings to see which consultant fits best with your needs, budget and personality.
  • It is important to make sure hiring a consultant will be worth the money, both in saving time and reducing stress, as well as getting discounts. TheKnot.com[9] offers a list of questions to ask a wedding consultant before signing a contract.
  • Tip: Start looking for a wedding consultant as early as possible. Most wedding consultants cannot handle more than one wedding on a single day, and popular dates and weekends book months in advance.

Type: Wedding Planner/CoordinatorName: Events with Flair
What a great decision to hire Events with Flair to coordinate my wedding! Initially, I attempted to plan my own wedding, and have a couple of friends to assist on my wedding day. Quickly the stress of working a day-to-day job and planning a wedding became overwhelming. With only three months until my wedding date, Regina from Events with Flair took over planning my wedding. She effortlessley assumed the details, followed up with my vendors, and more importantly relieved me of stress. As a result, the wedding day went very well, and her added decorative touches and planning ideas really did wow my guests. She was very personable, and really understood our wedding vision. Her team came in an really made the event enjoyable for us, as well as our guests.

Type: Full PlanningName: Luxury Party
My parents were soon to have their 50th wedding anniversary my sister and I decided at the last minute, one month before to be exact to celebrate them in a big way! Both our work schedules did not allow for the planning of such. We dicided to call Luxury Party a place several of our friends had used. I spoke to Maria the party planner and right away we knew we wanted to give them a try. She met us at our house and after a long list of things we wrote down on paper we wanted with our tight budget and a guest list of 200. She put us at ease and told us to give her a day to put things together and she would get back at us. The rest is history... Not only did she work with our budget she also made our parents 50th the most beautiful party we ever had! She was extremly nice, calm and talented. She has been in the business for over 20 years. I would recomend her again anytime!!!!

Type: Full PlanningName: Vintage Ivy Events
I must say this wedding planner has great attention to detail. Since I live in Georgia and my parents live in Richmond, VA I did not have the time to go back and forth to plan my wedding. I tried, but I felt so overwhelmed. So, I decided to contact Tope of Vintage Ivy Events after speaking with a few friends in the DC area. We spoke over the phone about the ideas and issues I have for my wedding and she was able to give me ideas of how to save money, from that moment I knew that she could put the wedding of my dreams together. With her pleasant attitude, professionalism, patience, and wedding planning knowledge she fulfilled my expectations. She also did the decor design for my wedding. I had flower balls on vases, tall floral centerpieces, and submerged flowers in vases. She saved me money by connecting me with the right vendors in the Richmond area since I don't live there. She kept me aware of everything that was going on. Check out, www.vintageivyevents.com. She is simply awesome!

She recommended wonderful vendors, was always available and extremely patient with all of my questions and concerns. Nina is also extremely organized, thorough, and has an incredible talent for design. The day of my wedding I was able to relax and just enjoy the day, knowing that Nina was running the show.

I enthusiastically recommend her to anyone, whether you need a day of coordinator or a full event planner!

Posh Girls Tying The Knot~ Fabulous Service
Amount: $1,485.00
Posted by: Karen Baker in Raleigh, NC.Posted: August 5th, 2010 08:08AM
Type: Wedding Coordination, Rehersal & ConsultName: Posh Girls -Tying The Knot
I hired Maggie Haines with Posh Girls- Tying The Knot- as my Day-of Wedding Coordinator after my husband and I had discussed with his brother all the things we had to do for our wedding. We thought we could cater the wedding ourselves, make all the decorations, and do all the decorating. My brother-in-law thought we were crazy. It turned out that hiring Maggie was the best decision we made! Though we did make our centerpieces, favors, and faux cake, Maggie took care of setting everything up and cleaning it up at the end of the night. She dealt with any last minute changes needed and even reminded me about my throw-away bouquet, which I had forgotten. The decorations at the reception site were absolutely gorgeous with draped tulle and lights, garlands of leaves, pumpkins, guords and potted mums.Maggie made sure my husband and I were happy and enjoying our party. She checked in with us throughout the night and even made up dessert plates for us so that we wouldn’t miss out on anything. She made sure the restaurant served warm apple cider for the cocktail hour and not boiled apple cider as well ensured the desserts were brought at the end of the evening instead of sitting out all night. She did such a good job and I don’t think the guests even knew she was there; she was so discreet and professional. Because of Maggie my husband and I were able to relax at our rehearsal dinner the night before and enjoy our perfect reception. We couldn’t have been any happier!
