How much to charge for day-of wedding coordination?

Unread postby labellefille » May 6th, 2014, 9:55 am

Hi everyone,

I have a potential FIRST client on the horizon for Day-of Wedding Coordination (yay!!) and they are not family or friends so its the real deal!!!
I want to charge them appropriately.
Task so far include setting up decorations and making sure everything goes according to plan.

Can I get some suggestions as to how much to charge my first clients?
And what would be best for a Day-of Service? Fixed or hourly?

Thank you!

For the day I'd say a fixed fee for an agreed amount of hours that you're required (e.g. From 9am until 9pm), and then hourly for any extra time after that.

For weddings package deals are normally more appropriate/common - unless you've got a ridiculously enormous wedding to do, then maybe hourly would be best - that way both you she your client can see what you've put into their big day.

You also need to decide whether or not you'll charge an initial consultation fee.

Hope this helps :)
