Jen has done several events for me including my day of wedding planing, baby shower, and bachelorette party. I am also booking her for another baby shower I am throwing in April. She is always on time and on top of it. Jen has a great eye for perfection and creativity. She is a very hard worker and knows how to give you want you want even, if your on a tight budget! She is crafty and knows how to recreate an idea perfectly. She is very personable and kind. Jen knows how to read your personality and help you portray that in your event. She knows how to stay calm and cool in a time of stress and reassure you your event is still going as planned. For my wedding, Jen kept me focused and on time with decisions that needed to be made but in a polite kind way. For one event I had her plan I was impressed with her determination in making sure all the preparations were ready and on time. As a bride you don't want to know what is happening behind the scenes during your wedding day and Jen made sure everything went smoothly. I would recommend this event planner for any event with confidence that you will be more than impressed as I was!

My name is Lori Sims, I have the honor of working with her everyday.She has done many many parties for our work & have made phenomenal desserts, dinners that were not only the most delicious I ever tasted, but were served in an elegant fashionable way. She has done pastries for my daughters wedding that were absolutely gorgeous & delicious, many guest were asking who my caterer was.she also saved me alot of money compared to other caterers that were very rude & overly priced. She takes pride in everything she does., she is currently designing a birthday cake for my husband I can't wait to see it !! THANK YOU Shelly for your dedication & expertise you put into everything you do.I would highly recommend her, over any other caterer in the area.

About

We try and approach each and every wedding or event as if this is my daughter getting married. And I am proud to say that most of my brides have in many ways become part of my family. And they return for many other things now which always makes me smile to hear that one has a baby on the way or maybe just a house warming.

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.
