I know it depends on the area as well of a bunch of other stuff… But i’ve sent a note to a few asking for rates/info and haven’t heard anything back (obviously I wouldn’t go with them), but just wondering what some other people are paying for this service to see if it’d be a waste of time to look into it (cause it’s not in the budget) or I should do a little more reasearch.

Ooooh, I want to know this too! We are hiring a friend with some planning experience and are meeting with her soon. I am having a hard time finding solid number of how much she should be paid.

Mine is charging me hourly…45 bucks an hour for that day and then I’ve already paid for about five hours of just consulting time where she’s helping me with vendors and some logistical ideas.
I love mine…she’s normally an interior designer, so I knew she would “get” the look I’m going for.

i think it varies on the area… but i’ve heard anywhere from $500-$1500 being average for having a coordinator ALL day of the day of the wedding!

The ones i looked at ranged from $800-$1500. i did find some that were less than that ($500) but they would take on 3-4 weddings a weekend and were so busy that i could barely make an appointment to meet them. not the type of service i wanted for my wedding.

Thanks everybody! I love the thought of one, but looks like I’ll be sticking to my original plan of delegating a recently married cousin with my wedding spreadsheets & last min DIY stuff to set up.
