I think I’d see what others in the area are charging and take a bit off as a friend discount.

I think fees vary dramatically from city to city.  In my town, DOCs cost $1500 or more.  One hour away, you can get one for $700 or so.

I LOVED planning our wedding because I am obviously sick and twisted and need professional help.  



Our DOC normally charges $1200 for day-of services.  I *think* she’s fairly average in price around the DFW area (though I don’t really know since I didn’t do any research.  We won her services at a bridal show, so I don’t know anything).  Since you’re doing so much work for her, not just day-of stuff, but you don’t have any licenses, perhaps DOC-type prices would be good?

A lot of planners charge 8-10% of the couple’s budget. Maybe you could charge her 6-8% as a discount? 🙂
