If we get a wedding planner from out of town, do we also pay for lodging and food? What should we pay for?

First - Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
Many wedding planners (consultants) travel and typically speaking, their accommodations as well as their meals and travel fee are to be covered by the client. My contract specifically states that for any event outside of a 50 mile area of the Atlanta Metro area requires travel fees.
Of all of your wedding vendors, the only one that is there truly to make sure that your wedding day is exactly as you dream and have planned, it's your consultant. Selecting your consultant early in the process is the best advice as they can help lead you to appropriate vendors that will offer you the best service and pricing. My services include several different types of packages so that a bride can determine the amount of assistance she needs prior to the wedding. We also confirm details with each of your vendors so that every detail is covered and accounted for. Based upon where the event is taking place, I normally offer my clients a few options on packages to work towards meeting their budgetary needs.
Hope this helps you with your question.

Ask your vendors if all travel fees are included. Most vendors include their gas, food etc in the price quote. If you are bringing a planner from another state for your wedding, it is best to ask them if there are any additional fees involved. If there are, ask for a price quote up front and ask for it to be signed. Nothing is worse than getting stuck with a high, unexpected bill.
It is never customary to pay for their food at the wedding, but it is a nice gesture.
