    Helloo Ladies, 

    I am new to this community and would like to get answer about cost of Wedding Planner. If a Wedding Planner charges a percentage of the total cost of the wedding (which they normally do), how is the total cost of the wedding calculated? The reason I asked is, I kinda know which photographer I want to use and some specific vendors, do their cost get added to the total cost? 


    What about if you ask that she help with the guest accommodations help? Does that mean she gets a percentage of the guest total spending? For example if it cost each person $800 for air and hotels and there's 50 guest - this total to $40,000. Do I need to pay a percentage of that as well? 


    Any help is appreciated!!

    these are really questions you should ask your planner because different planners have different pricing models.  Some work on commission, some a flat fee, some a combination of both.
