Wedding planner costs?

Just trying to get an idea of what the average wedding planner would cost?  I'm thinking full service but there are a few things we will be leaving out - no formal photography,no bridesmaids lunch officiant already settled, no videographer, no honeymoon work. Also only 4 attendants only total - about 150 guets.
Thanks!

    I'd post this to your local board too-but I just got a quote from a top local planner(Phoenix) for a package similar to what you describe. It was 5600.

    The Virginia board isn't very active, unfortunately, but you could definitely try posting there.  

    Have you actually contacted any coordinators to see what they would charge?  My guess is that this varries quite a bit based on specific location (say, if you're in the Nothern VA area or DC it would probably cost more than if you were in Roanoke).

    You really just need to contact them and figure out what will work for your budget.

    We ended up hiring a top wedding planner in our area (San Francisco) and her fee (including discounts she gave us for varying reasons) for full-service coordination is $8500 --surprisingly, that was NOT the most expensive quote I received! I think the highest was about $23,000.... HA. But I also recieved quotes from other coordinators that were as low as $1200...

    So, do your homework and choose someone that works for you!

    We got a day-of coordinator in Dallas for 850.

    Full service is about $6000 and up around here.
