Wedding planners generally charge a management/service fee, which is typically a percentage of the total wedding budget and amount of work and is finalized after discussions with you. However, there are costs savings you will receive from the special rates offered exclusively to us by our vendors and suppliers. Hiring us does not necessarily cost you more than your planned budget.
