What does a Wedding Planner Cost, UK

Not sure on what a wedding planner does and how much does a wedding planner cost in the UK, i am about to tell you



A brief description on ‘What does a wedding planner do’?


A wedding planner is someone who offers a number of wedding planning packages that will assist with your wedding planning.


Full Wedding Planning - This will involve an experienced wedding planner to plan your wedding from start to finish. Hire Societies role of a wedding planner will plan your wedding from clothing and flowers, to venues for ceremony and breakfast, catering, drink and entertainment, and can even include arranging accommodation, post wedding entertainment & pre wedding.

Partial Wedding Planning - This is for couples who have pretty much done 90% of the planning and just need help with 2 to 3 wedding suppliers that they have not been able to source. Hire Societies will source the wedding suppliers for you.


On The Day Coordination - Again this package is couples who have done everything but just need someone to make sure the day runs smoothly on the day.



What your Investment costs


‘I can't justify spending so much money on a wedding planner’. I hear this alot from couples getting married. It's important to understand that wedding planners' costs are based on more than just the average wedding time, which is between 250-300 hours. All wedding planners reflect their costs on their business rates, professionalism, time, staff and admin. The only way I can really put it across is, break that investment cost down and divide it by 300, then you need to keep in mind business costs, NI, Pensions, team members, their experience, and what it takes to plan a wedding. Now that you have that “hourly” rate in mind, now ask yourselves, is it still expensive.


You do get cheap wedding planners, but please please bear in mind that they are more likely not a qualified wedding planner.
