How much to charge for decorating a wedding reception
Looks like I have a new calling, or so my relative-to-be thinks so. She would like me to make the decorations which also includes help with the invitations and decorating the reception room. This I know, will entail quite a bit of time and the wedding is about 3 months away.
The problem is, I'm not sure how much to charge. She wants to pay me, in fact, she told me she wants to. I feel funny about doing so since she will be my relative soon but it will take time away from my own arts/crafts business (and my kid).
I really can't charge how I operate my own business because it's just not the same and she's purchasing the supplies. I have gotten responses from other family members who have said about $15-$20/hr. Isn't that too much? The part I feel less guilty about charging is the part where I've gone and done research for her and am responsible for the set up at the reception. Thoughts?
