How do you structure your fees? A percentage of the budget? A dollar amount per attendee? Hourly rate? I'm not a professional event planner, although I do have alot of experience organizing and executing events as a volunteer. I've been asked to quote on organizing a grand opening for a new library (which will have both an invitation-only reception as well as an event open to the public), and could use some feedback on how to structure my proposal.
Thanks in advance!

Hi. I am an event and wedding planner in New England. I charge a percentage of the budget, however I base this percentage on the type of event, whether it is a non-profit, number of guests, and a few other elements. Although the budget is a factor you have to remember that the work going into any event can often vary. The last thing you want is to undercharge for an event and end up basically giving up hours for free. Carefully make a list of what this event would entail while you craft an RFP based on a percentage of the budget that will make sure you are paid what you are worth.
