Dorrenda and her staff was amazing! She asked all the right questions for someone planning their own wedding. She really made the process much less stressful. The food was great, the service and setup was beautiful! Highly recommend!

Hiring Carlyn Millea with Blissful Blooms was the best decision I made when planning my wedding! My wedding (which was attended by 170 guests) was in Rocky Point, Mexico. Naturally, planning from Phoenix, Arizona was no easy task, but Carlyn made everything go so smoothly! On top of the usual planning considerations, we also had to arrange bus transportation for our guests, schedule transportation to Phoenix for out of town guests, arrange transportation and accommodation for our vendors (band, photographer, videographer), arrange hotel accommodations for all guests, purchase flowers in Mexico (which isn't easy), plan an out of town rehearsal dinner and farewell breakfast.... You get the idea. Despite the fact that planning this wedding involved a lot of moving parts, Carlyn made it look EASY. She is incredibly talented and creative but organized and thorough- truly the best of both worlds. She always wanted to know what my vision for the big day was and did a beautiful job executing the tastefully done décor (which was ocean/beach themed of course). Her flower arrangements were truly spectacular. The day of my wedding went off without a hitch, and if there were any issues I did not know about them because Carlyn was on top of everything! I received countless compliments on the wedding weekend, which was everything I dreamed of and more thanks to Carlyn. I also gained a new friend in the process. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Blissful Blooms to handle your big day or special event, no matter what the size. You will be so glad you did!

Lexie gets rave reviews from me! For my wedding last weekend she turned me into a rockin' bride with fab makeup, lashes to die for and long blonde extensions that my now husband adored.

When we began planning a wedding we really did not think we needed a wedding planner. Most of them were overpriced and full of themselves. We chose Party Bliss because Kristy arrived on time and prepared for every meeting. She was helpful in helping my wife design the table decorations she was attentive to our needs and it was readily apparent she knew her job. When my wife's and my work loads increased it was becoming increasingly difficult to manage the massive workload entailed to plan a wedding at a private home venue involving 8 vendors, live entertainment international travelers and 90 guests. We handed off the entire load to Kristy and told her she had our complete trust and confidence and she absolutely exceeded all of our expectations. We had a beautiful wedding, my wife was very happy and we all had a great time because of Party Bliss and the way they professionally executed their duties. Were we to do it all over again and we knew what a great company Kristy ran, I would have given her minimal guidance and a budget and would have not been disappointed. Brian & Donna McFadden

    Pearl made our wedding experience go so smoothly! From day one, she mapped out her plan to contact all the vendors and making sure that they were all on the same page. With her experience, it better guided us to a clearer vision of we wanted for our wedding. She was very assertive when it came time to do our Wedding Rehearsal, which was excellent for our group. Pearl did a lot more than I was expecting and I'm so thankful for that. She absolutely went above and beyond to make sure I relaxed on my wedding day. She was super professional, organized, and invested in our wedding! I will refer her to anyone that is getting married. Thank you Pearl for all that you did!! I really really don't know what we would have done it without you there!!!! A Very Satisfied Bride, Edelmira Hodge

    The BEST decision I made for my wedding was hiring Tammie of Desert Vines Events as my wedding planner/coordinator. I'll be honest, I consider myself a pretty organized person who enjoys researching/planning, but no amount of research can replace the years of experience from a veteran wedding planner like Tammie. Tammie was absolutely professional, amazing, and so worth having! I told her what I like, my priorities and she made it happened! She was always quick to respond and when she gave herself a deadline, she always achieved it. What I also love the most about having a planner I didn't have to go insane trying to answer all the uncertain questions. Yes, it was PERFECT! Also, my family and friends all loved and appreciated everything that she did. I can't thank her enough, I really got to enjoy every minute of my wedding and I owe that to her... Thank You so much Tammie!!

    Adetoun is the best thing that happened to me during my wedding planning process. I hired her to do my decoration and she was exceptional. We bonded from our first meeting and she was one stop shop as she planned everything. She is very professional and keeps to her words. She did everything she said she was gonna do and even more. when the doors opened for the guess to walk into the reception venue, their face lit up because they felt like they were in Cinderella's ballroom. Everything looked so amazing. I couldn't be happier that i chosed her and i thank God for leading me to her. She made me have my dream wedding. I was a very satisfied bride and i will recommend Adetoun anytime, anyday and for any event. I will use her again for all events i will ever have. She has become our family decorator for life. I love doublt T cateering.??

    Hiring Trisha was the best investment we made for our wedding! From the moment we met I knew she really cared about her clients and wanted to ensure their event goes exactly how they imagined. Trisha was everywhere I needed her to be and more and very accessible. She is flexible, kept things running as smooth as possible and made me feel at ease during the whole process and on our wedding day. She takes pride in her work and it shows. We can't thank her enough for being the support she was for us on our wedding and even after. Do yourself a favor and hire a hard working professional like Trisha for your special event. Thanks Trisha!!

    Rocheal was excellent in listening to our wedding vision and working with us on a specific ethnic menu (new to her recipes). She took the time to prepare samplings and to make sure everything looked and tasted as we intended it. Great presentation and everything tasted authentic! She made sure everything was just the way we wanted, right down to the cake table, wedding favors and centerpieces. We recommend Rocheal to anyone who wants their party to be a success.

      Levi made the biggest day of our life both memorable and special. Levi’s words were fitting and personal - it felt as if he’d known us all our lives. His personality, whit and humor were icing on the cake. My guests loved him too. Many came up afterwards inquiring about him. All in all, my wedding was a joyous occasion thanks to Levi. I’ll definitely ask him officiate life’s next major event.

        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.
        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
