Does a wedding planner get paid before the event or afterwards?

  • Some want to be paid up front, but most ask for a good hefty deposit and are paid after the event. It is usually up to the Best Man to be sure the Minister, Bartender, etc., are paid off and that includes the wedding planner. Deposits are put on something "in good faith." This also covers any costs you may incur.
