I don't mean to judge so harshly, but, if you're asking your wedding planner to also take on the role of CSR in your day to day business, you may want to reconsider their pay. Commission for someone who *will* do daily work, but won't likely have daily (sometimes not even weekly) actual weddings is not really fair. You're asking someone to work for you *without pay* most of the time, with the, less frequent, payment here and there.

You're not going to get the kind of person you're looking for on a salary like that. That actually screams to me "we don't really have the money to pay you, right now, but we want you to work your butt off and create more business for us, and do a lot of work, just so we can pay you", that's not even slightly professional and doesn't speak highly for a business that's been around for two years.

I'm sorry if that's harsh, I'm not real sure how else to say it without being harsh, but the industry you're in is pretty fierce. Personally, if I were to have a wedding(though I already have, lol), I wouldn't go for a venue that expects staff to work daily, but won't pay them. That's not kosher in my book.  You want your workers to take their job seriously, but you're not actually taking them seriously. Might want to rethink that approach.
