I know that I can’t afford a full wedding planner. What does a typical DOC charge? I’m very early in the process, but I’m trying to figure out what things cost and if I can afford everything. I know I can start calling/emailing places, but I thought I could start here first.

@ADBK2011: DOC costs can vary a lot depending on the experience. If your wedding is very large and ornate, you will probably want to go with a more experienced planner. If you are having a smaller wedding, then I say go with a less experienced planner who wants to break into the business. Just because they are newer doesn’t mean they can’t do a great job! I’ve seen DOC’s charge anyways from free(starting out and want to build up their portfolio) to $800 dollars.
I would certainly love to throw my name in the pot if you are looking for people. Send me a PM if you would like to talk more! I also know some great planners in the area who would do a fantastic job
