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!).

$ 400 or less

Average cost

$ 1500

Most couples spend between

$ 1000 - $ 2500

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.

New York City Wedding Planner: Your Wedding Planner Guide for New York City and Beyond

The City that Never Sleeps is a buzzing metropolis. Showcased in movies and found throughout literary classics, the city has left a deep mark on the cultural fabric of not just the US but the world. With trademark sites and famed dishes, you and your sweetheart can celebrate your wedding in a memorable and original way with ease.

A Concrete Grid Full of Choices

Decisions are endless in the Big Apple. Known for the cuisine, you have the crème de la crème of caterers who can make entrees, buffets, and more in any number of styles. Venues are just as plentiful, from historic locales bursting with charm to sleek and contemporary constructions oozing sophistication. Only the start, there are options and choices around every corner in terms of dresses, decor, photographers, and more. This is where a wedding planner can step in. A coordinator can help you navigate the myriad of possibilities while keeping your wedding vision on the horizon. Weddings are full of details and when you add on a plethora of choices, the excitement of your pending nuptials can quickly fade into a stress-induced panic attack. Your planner can help alleviate this stress and transform the experience of organizing your special event into one as memorable as the day itself.

Poughkeepsie, New York: An Refuge North of the City

Take a stroll across the Walkway Over the Hudson and you can see what Poughkeepsie, the city and the town, New York are all about. Offering splendid views of vegetation cut by the flowing waters of the Hudson below, Poughkeepsie stands as a more nature-infused location for your wedding than NYC. Prestigious institutions, such as Vassar College, call this post-industrial city home. The municipality is also significant historically, being where the US Constitution was ratified in 1788. Here you can make your wedding a retreat, set against the backdrop of picturesque streets enveloped by towering trees.

Best Times to Sit Out on the Stoop

With rain a possibility throughout the year, New York City is a subtropical climate with high levels of humidity. Cold winters are balanced by hot summers with milder temperatures in the spring and fall. The changes in weather is worth considering when trying to determine when to host your own celebrations, particularly if you are thinking of holding your event outside or on a rooftop. A springtime wedding might make a particularly romantic setting for your soiree, as the city’s trees bloom with gusto, making the city an urban wonderland with a storybook landscape.
