I am hiring a full-service wedding planner. I plan to do basically nothing but make final decisions. Meaning I want her to source and vet all vendors, give me a few options to pick from, and then book them. I don't want to coordinate pretty much anything. I basically want to pick my dress, the flowers, and make final decisions on everything, and then show up and enjoy the party. Her full service plan costs $8000. I know that's a lot of money, but for my budget and lifestyle, it's not too much. (Plus she'll be helping to plan the rehearsal and bridal shower as well.) Additionally, I just literally have no interest in doing anything besides making final decisions, and she is going to save me HOURS and HOURS of work. All of that being said, I just got her quote, and it's $8000 plus a 18% service fee, which was explained sort of like a tip, and 6% tax, which in Pennsylvania, there's typically no tax on services. I'm confused- is that standard? I can't really find any information on service fees or taxes when it comes to a full-service wedding planner.
