I’m not sure. On the one hand, to someone who has absolutely no knowledge or talent to pull together a design layout for a wedding, it might be worth it to them. But for someone who knows what they want in general and is working with a florist who usually can really pull together a look, it might just be way too much money. Do you have any friends that are especially design oriented who you could sit down with and get input from? I kind of fell in the in between category when I was planning/designing my wedding. On the one hand, I would’ve benefited from what you are describing. But on the other hand, I had a friend who helped me a lot and a florist who really listened to my vision and then also helped me create it, from the color scheme to the tablecloths.

What are they exactly doing for the extra money?

What are the “for sures” you have in mind?

I would hire her. I have a wedding planner, but she doesn’t specialize in design as much :-/ so I will probably be hiring a lady who specializes in design for the wedding too. 

I too am having a hard time visualizing and designing the entire wedding; I think it would be worth it for you to hire the additional package (if you can afford it).

As a party planner (I don’t do weddings, I do parties), I would say if it is in your budget and it includes the planner doing these things:

-planning the design according to your imput and meeting with you at least twice to go over it, tweek, etc

-acquiring the design elements and handling design related vendors (florist(s), linens company, etc)

-implimenting the design day of AND doing all of the teardown of the design

-I’d also expect him or her to do at least 1 mock up for my final approval before the event

Otherwise, nah, skip it.  Some florists are VERY good at design, others not so much beyond flowers.

Make sure that he or she is very clear on what YOU want, is open to your imput and ideas, is honest about the cost of things vs. what can actually be achieved, and is available when you need to discuss things with him or her.  Good luck!
