@Lene-GTA:  You wont really get a “deal” in the end.. If you do everything yourself, you’ll probably spend the same amount of money than if you got a “discount” from a wedding planner and then paid their fees. That is what I have seen from my friends who have gotten married.

Happy planning!

depends also if you get a full, partial, or day of coordinator.   

Most just charge a flat fee…. I’m assuming it’s the ones that are specific to certain venues.  If you find an independant one they may charge based on budget.

From what I’ve read, you should get one with a flat fee. Cuz otherwise they might have incentive to upsell you at every turn…

My wedding planner saved us a ton on our venue booking. If you find the right one with the right connections it could make a huge difference!

We got a DOC, so really it’s costing us more, but saving us sanity. At this point, knowing I can (probably) relax and not have to worry on the day of is priceless.

@Lene-GTA:  With your wedding budget, I don’t think you’re going to save money necessarily by booking a planner. A wedding planner is usually a luxury buy that saves you time, headache, and looks out for you. Just FYI, my wedding planner costs $6,500 alone, and with them I found a venue that would save me $10K on my wedding, that I wouldn’t have heard about otherwise, but I didn’t hire them necessarily for that, I hired them because I’m too busy to plan a wedding otherwise
