We interviewed 3 wedding planners before meeting Erica. Erica is the best wedding planner in town!! I do not say rhat lightly She attended to all of our needs and was so well organized. Every thing I wanted Erica made sure I had. She worked with our budget and worked around the clock for us. I wish I could personally talk with each bride or groom that reads this review because words do not seem to express how happy we felt after working with Helping Hands. You will not wrong! She is a wonderful person.

    Robert King was the officiant for my wedding. I honestly can't say enough about the wonderful job he did. Robert went above and beyond my expectations for him. Of course with any wedding something always falls through last minute and it was the chairs in my wedding. Only a couple of hours until show time and we had no chairs for the guest. I went into full panick mode and started frantically searching for some but Robert stopped me and told me he would take care of it and I needed to continue with what I was doing to get myself ready. He took a lot off of my shoulders to ensure that I was focused on myself and not the setup. I am forever thankful for his help and I couldn't have asked for better!

      Kris was a huge part in making our wedding phenomenal. She was extremely helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. She was always quick to respond to any phone calls, text messages, or emails. She took time to understand our vision for the day and made sure we had everything exactly as we wanted. She coordinated with our caterer, dj, pastor, and the hall representative to make sure everything ran smoothly both during the planning stages and the day of, taking a ton of worry off of our shoulders. The decor that she created and found for us was breathtaking, we told her ideas of what we wanted and she far exceeded anything we could've put together ourselves. She transformed our bland hall into something out of a fairy tale. Every step of the process Kris's professionalism, organization, creativity, and caring made our wedding planning and wedding day absolutely worry free and amazing. I would highly highly recommend her to anyone and everyone who is need of an Event & Floral Designer!

      I met Mrs. Beverly of Precious Beginnings Wedding at a Bridal show. Her knowledge of her business and quality of service is far beyond any I have come across! She genuinely cares for her clients and treats them with respect which goes along way when trying to find the perfect Event Planner!. You can't go wrong with Precious Beginnings, they are AWESOME!

          Kayla (Gaynell Director) is absolutely wonderful to work with! Her goal is to make sure everything is in line to meet and exceed the expectations of a bride and groom’s special day. She made sure that all the details and procedures happened at the exact moment so the families could celebrate the occasion stress-free. As a fellow wedding vendor myself, it is a pleasure to work with Kayla and I know that every wedding we work together will go as planned and flawless just like the newlyweds dreamt it would be.

            Q & A

            Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

            What is a wedding planner?

            A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

            How much does it cost for a wedding planner?

            Wedding planning is a full-time job — unless you hire a professional to handle the hard work for you. The cost for a wedding planner will depend on the level of service you desire. The least expensive wedding planner option is day-of coordination, then partial service, then full-service.  

            The national average cost for wedding planning is between $990 and $1,300. Costs are greatly affected by region, with rural or smaller-town wedding planners often far more affordable than planners in higher-cost cities. Here are some examples of the various levels of wedding planning and their potential average costs:

            • Day-of-wedding coordination: $800-$1,700. Day-of services can include the planner finalizing all details, creating a timeline, confirming vendors and overseeing all setup, day-of activities, and cleanup. The couple does all the front-end planning and contracts all the vendors. Time commitment could be about 15-25 hours, depending on pricing.
            • Partial service: $1,500-$3,800. Here the planner works with the couple from the beginning, helping contract vendors, creating a timeline, and overseeing all details of day-of execution. Time commitment could be about 30-60 hours, depending on package and pricing.
            • Full service: $3,500-$8,000 or more. Here the professional handles all wedding and planning details including working on design, securing rentals, getting the venue and vendors, and handling complete execution of the event. Time commitment could be 50-150 hours or more, depending on package and pricing.
            • Consulting: $50-$150 per hour for design, vendor, reception and other wedding planning consultation.
