How much does a wedding planner cost?

Costs will vary from wedding to wedding, depending on the level of service provided and the individual budget. As a general guide, the cost is usually around 10 to 20 % of the total wedding budget. The first meeting with your wedding planner is free.

What does a wedding cost?

The budget of a wedding can vary, depending on the options chosen by the couple (venue, location etc.), the number of guests, the type of hired services and the special requirements of each individual. When planning a wedding budget it is important to ask yourselves:

... How much money do we want to/ can we spend on our wedding?

... Which priorities do we have? (E.g. high quality wedding photos = most important, wedding cake = less important?)

According to your given budget, we will plan the details of your wedding with an eye on your personal wishes and needs as well as on your budget.
