Congratulations on your engagement and welcome to the wonderful world of wedding planning!
There is no doubt that hiring a wedding planner is money well spent. For 10 years I enjoyed a career as one of Toronto’s foremost wedding planners, before I shifted my focus to certifying other planners. During that time, I wrote and published Weddingology — A Wedding Encyclopedia, not only as a resource for my brides, but also as a textbook for the wedding planner’s course.
My brides depended on me to think for them when their brains were crazy with wedding details, to fight for them when vendors weren’t cooperating, and to be their strength when they had very little left of their own.
Still, a professional wedding planner charges an average of $2500-$3500 to completely plan a wedding. That fee drops to around $1000 if all you need is someone to coordinate the actual wedding day. And that is in addition to all the other wedding expenses! I was aware that with the proper support a bride could easily manage independently, and I am pleased to offer that support.
