An 80-page comprehensive guidebook
This guidebook was written by Debbie Orwat, Founder and Chief Inspiration Officer at Planner’s Lounge. The first half of this book covers everything to know about the types of planning services offered, what is typically included in each service, tips and tricks, ready-to-use planning package templates, and example wording to use on your website services page.
The second half of this book explains the various pricing methods used by wedding planners. We explain how each method works, how to structure client payments, when to raise prices, pricing considerations such as travel and staffing, and detailed explanations with examples of how to use the included Excel spreadsheet file to determine your pricing.
Ready-to-use planning package templates
The ready-to-use planning package templates are not your typical bullet-point lists of services The 15-page planning package templates are comprehensive and include detailed explanations of each task that is included.
Templates include Wedding Day Management Service (also called day-of or month-of coordination), Partial Wedding Planning (Hourly Based), Partial Wedding Planning (Services Based), Full-Service Wedding Planning, and A La Carte Wedding Planning Services.
Three Excel worksheets to calculate rates, event pricing, and expenses
Use the Hourly Rate Calculator Worksheet to guide you through the process of determining estimated amounts for salary, expenses, taxes, savings, and gross income. It also calculates the number of billable hours you can work per year and what your hourly rate should be.
Use the Event Pricing Worksheet to determine the amount to charge for each wedding or event. The worksheet lists typical wedding planning tasks and fees where you can enter the details for a specific event. After the details are entered, the worksheet will calculate the total price to charge for the event.
It is challenging to determine pricing if you don’t know what your business expenses are.
The Business Expense Tracker Worksheet includes a comprehensive list of typical expenses incurred by wedding planners. Enter your numbers to calculate estimates for annual and monthly expenses.
