Wedding planning is a rewarding and exciting career that allows you to use your creativity, organisational skills and passion for weddings to help couples plan their dream day.
But how much can you expect to earn as a wedding planner in the UK?
The average salary for a wedding planner in the UK is around £25,000 per year, according to Indeed.co.uk. However, this can vary significantly depending on your experience, location, reputation and the type of weddings you plan.
Some wedding planners may charge a flat fee for their services, while others may charge a percentage of the wedding budget or an hourly rate. The average fee for a wedding planner in the UK is between 10% and 15% of the wedding budget, according to Bridebook.co.uk.
If you are self-employed - the amount of money you can earn as a wedding planner also depends on how many weddings you can handle per year. Some wedding planners may only take on a few weddings per year, while others may work on several weddings per month. The number of weddings you can handle will depend on your availability, workload, efficiency and the complexity of the weddings you plan.
