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!

@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!
