How Much Does a Wedding Planner Cost in Houston?
Wedding planning advice from one of the best wedding planners in Houston
There are many options for hiring a wedding planner, from consultative advice services to full wedding planning, and often hiring a planner can help save you costs in the long run. We asked Kat Creech, one of the best wedding planners in Houston, how she would respond:
“A wedding planner investment varies depending on your level of needs. In Houston, most of the planners offer a month of service rather than a day-of. The services usually start 4-6 weeks before the wedding date to allow time to review all the details and put together final timeline touches. My firm and many others have found this proactive approach less stressful for the couple as it allows for a relationship to develop and allows for the planner to understand the client’s vision and expectation. In our professional opinion, couples work really hard on their wedding vision and having the time to fully understand it, is advantageous. You can expect to see an investment of $1850-$2500.
A custom or partial investment is dependent on what the couple needs. It usually falls somewhere between the month-of and the full-service investment. Having a detailed conversation and outlining what you think your needs may be, will allow for your planner to create a custom package for you. It is advantageous to be open about what you are interested in spending rather than trying to cut items out to save pennies. A qualified, seasoned, and professional planner will be able to guide you on how to get the best bang for your buck with the dollars you are able to invest. You can expect to see an investment of $4500+.
The full service is an investment that removes all constraints and your wedding planner is there every step of the way. Full service allows for collaboration without the constraints of contract protocol. You can expect to see an investment of $6500+.
A wedding stylist is responsible for helping to make sure that the wedding looks beautiful! A wedding stylist will help a couple define the color, style, theme, and mood of the wedding. They will help to ensure that the final event looks cohesive. The distinction between a wedding planner and wedding stylist is often a gray area.
There are many wedding planners who offer styling services and many wedding stylists who offer planning services. For example, Kat Creech Events is a wedding stylist firm who offers planning services. It is our most the comprehensive service we offer. You can expect to see an investment of $8500+. If you are thinking of planning your own wedding, styling services may be the only help you need, which would put you back in the category of a partial or custom service. Wedding planning firms will also often offer a la carte services, and those are usually a flat fee or billed hourly.”
