How much will a Wedding Planner cost?

May 13, 2014 | Blog, Weddings

Wedding Planners usually have more than one option, depending on the size and duration of the wedding celebrations. The Event Planners offers a One the Day option as well as a Full Planning option.

Here are a few questions to answer to help your planner choose the best package for your wedding.

  • What is your rough wedding budget?
  • What is the size of your wedding?  How many guests?
  • Will your wedding run over a few days or just one day?
  • Do you have an idea of a wedding date?  Are you flexible on this date?
  • Have you seen a venue that you love?
  • Have you already booked any of your suppliers or bought your dress?
  • Would you prefer to pay a percentage of your wedding budget to your wedding planner or a set fee?

Common Cost Options of Wedding Planners:

  • Pay a percentage of your total wedding budget –  usually when your wedding is spread over multiple days
  • Pay an agreed set fee – usually when your wedding takes place on one day

The Event Planners Full Wedding Planning Package includes the following services:

  • Finding the perfect venue
  • Assistance in budget determination and breakdown as needed.
  • Discussion of theme, colour, style and complete wedding design and management.
  • Research of wedding professionals in each category that fit your event style and budget and to provide you with suggestions and guidance in making the final selections.
  • Attending service provider appointments.
  • Ensuring service providers receive deposits and final payments and you sign and return all contracts and terms and conditions where applicable.
  • Visit to both ceremony and reception sites prior to the wedding with service providers.
  • Liaising with and ensuring all service providers are fully briefed.
  • Development of a detailed wedding timeline and floor plan for contracted service providers and bridal party.
