All wedding planners and organizers come at a price. While it is so often that investing in a good wedding planner is such a big investment to make, the amount of assistance and benefits that come with always outweigh the risks. As many of you might ask, how much do you need to shell out when hiring a wedding planner? We heard you loud and clear and so we made a brief heads-up on the pricing of these wedding planners!
The safest, and always so often answer to this question is that it depends. When estimating the cost of hiring a planner, there are many factors that you need to consider. One, the season of your preferred wedding date and whether it is a peak season or not.
Second, the destination and theme for your wedding. These two factors will highly dictate the level of intricacy needed to pull off your dream wedding.
And lastly, the guest count. Logically, the bigger the guest count, the larger the demand for management and organization.
Typically, wedding planners do not give you a price at first glance. As a courtesy, most planners would like to know your estimated wedding budget. From there, they will create a proposal on which services would suit your budget. Usually, this may range from a full wedding services package, wedding coordination package, ala carte service, and the likes. The best way to find out is to consult your wedding planner.
Flat rate and percentage rate
Now for the tricky part, it is best that we consider each wedding as different in nature. Some weddings require distinct ideas, thus, requiring extra preparation and more helping hands. That is why it is so important to build a connection and constant communication with a wedding planner that can concretize your dream wedding in mind. In this way, discussions about the flat and percentage rates will be made easier and negotiable.
