    As a wedding planner, you have to look in detail at the amount of time it takes to plan a wedding before determining your pricing. You will spend numerous working hours in meetings with vendors and clients, writing and responding to emails, and so much more. Plus you have to consider how much time you will spend managing everything during the weekend of the event.

    Who said owning their own wedding business was easy. Thank you for making it easier for all of us. This give me so much more clarity into the number of the business. It’s not just creativity and planning, it’s the admin work, marketing and selling.

    You are right. It is often 50% of our time spent doing client work and 50% of our time running the business.
