Pricing for weddings : LUSENET : Photographers Communicating : One Thread

I have a wedding coming up that will be my first assignment in some time. I do not rely on photography for 100% of my income, but I would like to start moving in that direction, as it almost seems as though I have no choice!!:-) I have considered charging a flat rate for the shooting, film, and processing, however, I'm not sure that I want to flat-rate the prints. I think I'd rather create and price packages. I suppose my question is this: What kind of margin should I expect on the prints, or should I just try to be competitive?
