Your Wedding Planning questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Fash.

How much does a wedding planner cost?

A wedding planner costs $1,200 to $3,500, depending on your wedding location and size, and whether you choose to have a full-service wedding planner or simply a day-of wedding coordinator. Wedding planning packages can be structured as a flat rate, a percentage of the overall wedding budget, or a blend of fixed retainer, production fees, and a percentage allocated for vendor management and coordination. Additionally, many planners provide individual services on an hourly basis or with a set fee per service.

What does a wedding planner do?

A wedding planner is a professional who assists with the design, planning, and management of a client's wedding. They work closely with the couple to refine their wedding vision, including theme, style, and the overall look and feel of the wedding. Wedding planners also help couples develop a realistic budget and ensure that expenses stay within this budget.

Additionally, they can assist in arranging, contracting, and managing payments to vendors. They take over many administrative tasks like tracking RSVPs, managing paperwork, and creating detailed schedules for the wedding day itself.

Do I need a wedding planner?

Deciding whether you need a wedding planner depends on your budget, the complexity of your wedding, your available time, and your stress tolerance. Wedding planners bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table, which can save you time and money. They handle everything from design and vendor contracts to day-of emergencies, ensuring your wedding aligns with your vision while navigating the complexities of planning.

A wedding planner can help you maximize your budget. They have established relationships with vendors and can negotiate deals or suggest cost-effective alternatives you might not have considered. Their expertise can prevent costly mistakes and ensure you get the best value for your money. Also, they can save you time and stress by taking care of the overwhelming details allowing you to look forward to your wedding celebration.

Is a wedding planner worth it?

Hiring a wedding planner can be beneficial, but whether it's worth it depends on individual preferences and circumstances. A wedding planner reduces stress by taking the wedding planning burden off your shoulders, provides more time to focus on other tasks and enjoy being engaged, and offers expert advice. They can negotiate with venues and vendors on your behalf, often securing better pricing than you would on your own.

However, a wedding planner can be a significant expense that might require cutting other parts of your wedding budget.

How do I find a wedding planner?

Finding the right wedding planner involves a mix of research, personal preferences, and understanding the services you need. Some tips to help you find a wedding planner include:

  • Start your search by clarifying the help you need. Do you want full-service planning, someone to help you the day of the event, or something in between?
  • Use Fash.com to help you find wedding planners in your area with positive online reviews.
  • Review their portfolios to get a sense of their style and execution.
  • Ask for references and reach out to past clients to hear about their experiences.
  • Schedule several consultations to evaluate their experience, communication style, and ideas.
  • Discuss the budget and ask about their fees and what services they include.
  • Choose a planner that you feel a personal connection with since they will play a significant role in your wedding celebration.

What questions should I ask a wedding planner?

When meeting with a wedding planner, it's important to ask a variety of questions to ensure they are the right fit for your wedding. Here are some key questions to ask:

  • Are you available on my wedding date?
  • What services do you offer (month-of coordination, full-service planning, etc.)?
  • Can you work within our budget? Will you help me build and prioritize my budget?
  • How do payments work (a percentage of our budget, a flat fee)? Are there additional expenses on top of your base fee (travel, parking, food)?
  • Do you carry personal liability and professional indemnity insurance?
  • Can we see some of your past work from real weddings?
  • Can you tell me about a past wedding that was a particular favorite for you and why?
  • Do you have preferred vendors?
  • What organizational tools/programs do you use to organize all the details for your wedding day?
  • How do you best communicate with clients? How often will you keep in touch?
  • How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you planned?
  • Do you have a team working with you? What are the team members' qualifications?
  • What is included in your fee? What is the total cost and what is required for a deposit?
  • Will you plan the rehearsal dinner and post-wedding brunch?
  • What is your backup plan for inclement weather or illness?
