Most people take them a year to organize a wedding, but according to Paula Majstorovic, she plans to handle 15 clients per year. “There are weekends you have three or four, which have you as the wedding planner in Sydney, and you need to coordinate with your people such as finding stationery and organizing decorations.”
For a full service, the wedding planner demands an average fee of $4000. She says it will take around 80 hours to plan a wedding including taking the bride to find a ceremony and reception site, dresses and photographers, pay people on her behalf, and be the organizer on this big day.
“You need to persuade them to create a wedding day in their minds. On the big day, you start really early and finish very late. You seem to be the bride’s personal assistant minimizing her stress,” says Majstorovic.
She also needs to hire caterers, decorators and florists. Unsurprisingly, she favors expatriates. “Brides based overseas come here to Sydney with their family, and they aren’t a traditional Muriel who calls you around several times a day.”
