insane sticker shock - wedding planning

So i just got off the phone with a wedding planner and apparently she charges a little under 30k dollars for full wedding planning but she offered me a cheaper option to have a wedding planned by her assistant for about 20k. I just about died! I had to have her repeat the cost twice because I didn't believe it. INSANE.

 That seems extremely steep for a wedding planner.  Geez she better birth my children for that price!

 I know now how hectic it is to plan a wedding, but with all the info out there and all the helpful people I've encountered, I really don't see how or why one would hire a planner?? I do see the use of a DOC since they will handle all the last minute things so you don't have to worry, but if I have to tell me planner what I want, when I want, and how isn't that already doing their job?? Unless I'm giving them my money and then from my money they are the ones buying everything and such. If that's the case then I imagine they only end up with a small portion of it at the end as payment for themselves? But still if I'm telling them what I want then I can do a little leg work and do it myself. No offense to anyone who has had one.

 Um! No way! Unless that includes food, flowers, rentals and all that jazz, that is totally insane. But then again, I would never dream of spending that much on my wedding period. I'm planning my own all by myself and I can already tell that it will be absolutely beatiful! I think the total cost will come to $11,000 give or take. I won't even have a Day-of-coordinator. I have such wonderful friends and bridesmaids, that I won't need one! (:
