The different pricing of a wedding planner

First, two types of wedding planner exist: the ones who work as consultants, and the wedding planner agencies. 

If the expertise is the same, the organizations and pricing is different.

As a consultant, the wedding planner is someone who meddles between service providers and future brides and grooms. Their wage is based on a commission of each one of the fees of the service providers. The client and the service provider sign individual contracts.

As a member of a wedding planning agency, the wedding planner takes responsibility for the entire wedding’s organization. They are the only spokesperson in contact with the couple. Their wage is usually a package price, but can also be a percentage applied on the total cost of the wedding.

The spouses pay the wedding planners’ agency to book all of the services of their wedding. The agency will then be in charge of the billing of the service providers.

Several service offers exist when it comes to hiring a wedding planner:

A “ready to use” wedding: 

The wedding planner accompanies you from A to Z in the preparation of your wedding. Research of the wedding venue, negotiation with service providers, advice and assistance all along the organization, support in the administrative steps, planning of the program of the wedding day and attendance on the D-day to coordinate the service providers. 

Partial organization of the wedding: 

The wedding planner manages part of the organization of the wedding following a list of pre-determined tasks. 

D-day’s coordination:

The wedding planner is only in charge of managing the service providers and of coordinating the wedding day’s events. 

On demand weddings

The wedding planner is an associate during the wedding’s organization. It is often the case when the future spouses have already found their wedding venue and taken the first steps in the organization of their reception, but realize they need the help of an expert in wedding planning at some point. 

Research of service providers: 

The wedding planner calls upon her service providers’ network to offer the couple the guarantee of hiring high standard professionals with negotiated prices.

The wedding planner is a support and counsel during the wedding’s organization. They allow to lead the preparations without wasting time.

How to fix your wedding budget? 

A wedding abroad is appealing to more and more couples. However, they often associate a wedding abroad to an addition of constraints: the hardship of the organization from a distance, the language barrier, or the estimation of the wedding budget. 

Getting married abroad, is it more or less expensive than marrying at home? How to estimate the cost of a wedding abroad? What difference of prices are to consider?

First of all, prices vary in a considerable way from one destination to another.

For instance, the price of a wedding in Italy is different in every region. The rates of places and service providers for a wedding in Tuscany or in Rome are higher than the ones for a wedding in Apulia for example, because of the popularity of the first destinations.

The budget of your guests for your wedding abroad

To estimate the cost of a wedding abroad for your guests, you are to consider the logistical costs. In order to do so, we advise you to list the different means of transportation and to study their prices with a comparator.

For plane tickets prices, you can use the following websites: Kayak, liligo, or skyscanner.

After this, you must evaluate the housing prices. Today, numerous alternatives exist to reduce the cost of housing such as Airbnb or agritourism farms in Italy.

Furthermore, some wedding venues offer the possibility to sleep on site. It is the case if you wish to get married in an Italian castle or an Apulian masseria.

The elements of your wedding budget

More than your guests’ budget, you need to think of your wedding budget. To do so, you must fix a budget for the possible expenses linked with the organization of activities on site.

Finally, other than the external expenses, you must fix a budget for the classic spending linked with your wedding: meals, booking of the venue, photographer’s and DJ services, bride and groom’s preparation…
