In life, products and services are only worth what people are willing to spend on them. When people ask how much wedding planning services should cost, it’s difficult to answer because honestly, it’s all relative.
The pricing of services depends on the scope of a couples wedding and how much planning will be involved for the event(s). This includes guest count, overall wedding budget, number of events involved in the wedding experience, wedding location, and so much more. When it comes to the overall wedding budget, planners need to know this information as they will be managing the couples budget. That in itself is an ongoing task that entails much attention.
The planner is responsible for all of the minute details and logistics that go into planning a wedding. That is what we have been trained to do. This includes:
· Vendor outreach, negotiation, booking, and management
· Site visits and tours
· Strategic diagram layouts and set up
· Budget management
· Detailed planning outline
· Day-of coordination and management
· And more!
Whether or not you should hire wedding planning services is another story.
We recommend every wedding couple books at the very minimum, day-of coordination services.
Let’s compare booking a wedding planner to tax season, shall we?
Last year I was so confident that I could do taxes on my own. I thought it would be more affordable for me and my family to do them on our own. It can’t be that difficult, right? I mean, H&R Block has an online platform that walks you through the entire process step by step. Easy peezy!
After spending countless days and hours working through our taxes online, I was finally done. So I thought.
It said my husband owed money and that I would receive a small amount back in my return. This couldn’t be right.
After speaking with coworkers and taking a considerable amount of time to think about it, we decided to make an appointment with an H&R Block professional and give them a shot.
The comparison was unreal y’all.
