How much does a wedding planner cost?

A wedding planner can be an absolute lifesaver for busy couples, ensuring that the planning process and actual event run smoothly. As a professional who’s been through the process before, they can also offer countless wedding planning recommendations and tips. It’s important to know wedding planning is not a one size fits all service - your wedding vision is unique and a wedding planner will customize their offering to fit your needs. Because of this and the wide range of services these professionals provide, pricing varies widely with most couples in the U.S. spending at least $1,500 on wedding planner services for their big day. Wedding planner costs also differ based on the planner’s level of expertise, among many other factors, as more experienced pros typically come with a higher price tag (and with that comes top-tier service!).

What services does a wedding planner's fee include?

The services a wedding planner’s cost includes vary depending on the type of professional you’re hiring — whether it’s a full-service, month-of, or day-of planner, or a planner who specializes in destination weddings. Here are some of the most common services that your wedding planner may include in his or her package:
  • Correspondence: About 30 percent of a wedding planner’s time is spent communicating with you and your vendors via email and phone. Think of your planner as the “coach” of your vendor team who ensures that all of your wedding pros work together well—and frequent communication is a huge part of that.
  • Venue and vendor selection: Your planner likely has a lot of connections in the wedding industry and can help you pick the right venue and vendors that can help bring your wedding vision to life. Often, your planner will attend interviews and meetings with you and your vendors, too.
  • Organization: A big part of wedding planning is... paperwork? Yes, unfortunately it’s true. But wedding planners can make sure that all of your budgets, contracts, timelines, etc. are properly organized and easily accessible if needed.
  • Wedding prep: There are lots of seemingly small tasks that go into creating your perfect day both before and on the day-of from creating a wedding-day timeline, assembling invitations, setting up your favor display, assisting with your seating chart, and much more.
  • Day-of coordination: You might not see your wedding planner much on the day of your wedding—and that’s how it should be! Your planner will arrive long before your ceremony begins and stay well afterwards, making sure that everything runs on-time and smoothly from behind-the-scenes and any issues are handled quickly and quietly so that you and your new spouse can enjoy the day, stress-free!
  • Post-wedding tasks: There will likely be several important tasks to handle after the wedding, from ensuring clean-up and breakdown occur properly to returning rental items and making sure vendors receive their tips.

What wedding events does a planner's fee cover?

In most cases, a wedding planner will assist with the wedding itself—both ceremony and reception. However, if you are able to increase your wedding planning budget and costs, your planner can also help plan your rehearsal dinner and post-wedding brunch. If you’re having a destination wedding with lots of events over the course of the weekend, your planner may assist with those as well—but expect to pay more.

How much does a day-of wedding planner cost?

A day-of wedding planner isn’t heavily involved in the wedding planning process and is usually hired closer to the wedding, but has a big role to play on the wedding day, ensuring that the events run on time and everything is running smoothly. On average, the starting cost for a day-of wedding planner in the U.S. is $800 with starting rates for higher-end planners averaging $1,250 to $3,395.

How much does a partial wedding planner cost?

A partial wedding planner usually comes on board a month or so before the wedding day and assists with last-minute tasks—helping with the seating chart, confirming vendors, and day-of responsibilities. The average starting rate for a partial wedding planner in the U.S. comes in at $1,250, but can range from $2,300 to $6,000 if you’re working with a more experienced pro.

How much does a full wedding planner cost?

A full wedding planner helps to plan your wedding from start to finish and is usually hired early on in the planning process—at least 10 months in advance. The average starting rate for a full service wedding planner in the U.S is about $3,000 with top-tier planners averaging $4,500 to $12,000.

The Most Magical Vendor: A Guide to NYC Wedding Planners

Planning a wedding in New York City can be a real challenge — not because it’s hard to find what you need, but because there are just so many NYC wedding venues and vendors out there. If there’s one thing the Big Apple is not lacking, it’s wedding professionals. Whether you’re looking for NYC wedding caterers or wedding dresses or something else, a simple search is going to net you hundreds or even thousands of results. That’s why so many couples getting married opt to partner with wedding planners in NYC. A talented wedding planner will bring your wedding vision to life for you so you can focus on enjoying your engagement and your wedding. Sounds great, right? Read on to learn more about what NYC wedding planners do and how to find the right one for your special day.

Why You Should Consider Hiring a Wedding Planner

Honestly, there are so many reasons. A wedding planner can be a lot like a fairy godmother. They know what you need and what you want, and they make it happen like magic. They’ll connect you with the best wedding vendors, find great venues, help you stay organized, make tough decisions for you, help you stick to your wedding budget, handle difficult requests (like finding fair trade wedding favors), and help keep pre-wedding and wedding day drama to a minimum. Having a planner might even save you money, because your planner might have access to discounts you wouldn’t be able to score on your own.

The point is that wedding planners in NYC and elsewhere can take all the tough parts of planning a wedding off of your shoulders. Surprisingly, NYC wedding planners only charge about as much as wedding planners in other parts of the U.S.

Here’s Why Booking a Planner Is Different

While NYC wedding planners book up just like other wedding vendors, you don’t necessarily need to hire one as soon as you get engaged. Some couples will partner with a wedding planner from Day 1, but others only need the services of a planner as their wedding day approaches. That said, it’s always a good idea to book early even if you won’t need your planner for the entirety of your engagement. If you suspect you’ll want to work with a wedding planner as your Big Day draws closer, reach out to prospective planners ASAP to find out if they’re available around and on your wedding date. If the answer is yes, be sure to also ask about packages, their past experience, and the kinds of discounts you can expect to receive if you choose them. Make sure that the planner you ultimately choose has planned some weddings with a vibe similar to the one you want to have.
