Organizing an event is not as easy as you may think, and, no matter how pleasant it may be to personally plan every detail of your party, you can not but consider the energies and the time that are involved. It is time to consider whether or not you need the help of an event planner, someone who, in addition to guiding you, literally take over all the tasks, from wedding invitations to the tableau de marriage.
Wedding planner’s services
We assume that the event planner is a qualified professional figure at our service, if not 24/7 at least full-time. He or she stands out because he/she is able to easily manage the bureaucratic obstacles and the coordination of suppliers, relieving us of a considerable burden. Taking advantage of the services of a wedding planner means feeling sure to organize your wedding to the fullest, skipping the stress and anxiety that forego the wedding day.
The wedding planner and the costs of a thoughtless marriage
Same as for everything, the cost of a service depends on its size. Therefore, for the wedding planner the costs depend on what you require. It is in fact possible to choose only the consultancy service or the “complete package” with organization, presence and coordination during the entire marriage and even beyond, if desired – just think of all the planning necessary for the honeymoon -. On average, the wedding planner’s fee is between 10% and 20% of the total costs. Many spouses consider this figure as a pure expense: in reality, enjoying the wedding day and its previous phase in a good relaxed mood repays widely. You must then consider that an experienced professional planner will be able to advise you at best, avoiding to run into costly mistakes that you might commit.
Let’s get to the main question: how much does it cost to get married?

Refreshments and wedding dresses, which affect the budget for an average of 7,500 and 5,000 euros. However, we consider that one out of several advantages of contacting a wedding planner is the opportunity to get competitive prices offered by his/her trusted suppliers.
