Wedding Planning Services

What should you expect to spend on your wedding planning service?

Based on the national wedding planning organizations and training programs, it is suggested that couples spend no more than 12-14% of their overall budget on wedding planning/coordination services. 

The Savvy Bride is considered a Mid-range wedding planning service company in the St. Louis market. Our services range from  $2,250 to $10,000, with our average clients booking between $3,000 - $6,000 in services.

Please review the starting prices and use the 12-14% formula to determine if The Savvy Bride will fit your wedding budget.  The Savvy Bride charges a flat fee for services and not a percentage fee scale. This means the price you see is the price you will pay unless additional services are added, or your wedding falls into any listed "extra fee" charges.

You plan, and we execute the day so you can be in the moment.

Access to your coordinator begins when you sign your contract via email for questions and advice as you wrap up your planning.

To kick off your “two-month mark,” you will have a complimentary Zoom meeting with your coordinator to go over every detail of your wedding day. One month before your wedding day, your coordinator will collaborate with your vendors to ensure each one has their timeline and information for the day.


Your coordinator will assist with your rehearsal (up to an hour.)  On your wedding day (up to 8 hours), your lead coordinator and their assistant will be there to oversee the setup of your venue, ensure the ceremony runs smoothly, assist guests during the transition to the reception, ensure your timeline is followed, and gather up your décor and gifts to send home.
