So I decided that i wanted to hire a wedding coordinator and really when it all fall down..The cost of her is 1050? wow….and drumroll someone……thats just for the next 2 months…and to hire her for the day of is 750? I truly thought that I was giving her a chance…she was new in the business, didnt have much going on..I orginally spoke with her in july and now again for my oct wedding…and she has made it as if her business has picked up sooooo much since july 8th…however I have viewed her website of upcoming events..a….nd etc..and nothing…when I told her once again about my oct 23rd wedding…she never mentioned any other clients..etc…so how it it all of a sudden you have been so busy, that you raise your prices…? in a matter of weeks..? you just started this busy…well..i guess off to do it myself…just doing a little venting..

Do you have a contract with her for the day of? If you have a venue where they offer on site planning help I would try looking into that. I don’t know if that’s an average cost for the area you live in, but that sounds pretty high for me. I would have thought that a planner would have one set fee for the day of and the time leading up to it.
Either way what your dealing with sounds like more of a hassle than it’s worth.

I’m only paying 350 for mine, that price sounds very high! If you haven’t signed a contract I would definitely look around for another one.

I had a wedding planner and he charged me $250 extra to do the rehearsal and DOC – I would shop around because you could probably find someone cheaper

OH WOW you could also maybe look into having a Bee (from your area) trade doing DOC for each other I have heard of people doing that!

Fire her butt! I would not spend that much for someone. I might pay someone for the day if my venue didn’t provide me with one, but OMG, no way, unless she is planning EVERY detail for you and doing all your DIY stuff herself, she’s not worth it, IMO

That does seem a little excessive. It seems like you might be able to find a better value with someone else!

where are you located? my wedding is in california and my DOC is $700 and that’s really reasonable for there.

@Mrs. Meowerson: same here. I’ve been quoted 700 to over 1,000 in CA. 700 is on the cheap side, actually. :-/ Still deciding if I want to go through with it!
