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!

Carlyn saved me....I had 6 weeks to plan a wedding. I had the venue, my home but nothing else and very little time as we chose a Dec 31 date and figured it would be impossible to find a caterer and a band. I found Thumbtack when googling wedding planners so I went for it and Carlyn's name up and I contacted her. She responded immediately which was reassuring in itself and we made plans to meet. Carlyn was warm and kind and very prepared at that first meeting. She had lined up a caterer and a band for my approval and we hit the ground running with flowers and place settings. We had similar ideas of how we envisioned the wedding. Everything just clicked. The whole experience was wonderful. I knew it was going to be a fabulous wedding. Carlyn was there every step of the way and when the big day arrived she was there making sure everything went smoothly. I highly recommend Blissful Blooms to plan your wedding or corporate event.

I have high standards and I can easily say that Debbie was the best wedding planner I could ever ask for. She was always positive, always had a solution to everything we needed, always kept my budget front of mine and was just purely delightful to work with. I will keep in touch with Debbie just because I like her so much and I highly recommend her. Please feel free to contact me anytime if you want to discuss further, but you will be making a good decision if you go with her!

Party Bliss was absolutely fabulous. Kristi (the founder) was organized, open, and flexible. She was able to quickly understand my vision and implemented it wonderfully. She was easy to work with, on top of each and every detail (we had a large wedding... so details were key), and had beautiful suggestions of her own. Our guests have repeatedly told me that our wedding planner was "fantastic." I'd recommend Party Bliss again and again!

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Katie on several parties over the years. Those working relationships and the way she interacted with our guests is the reason why we chose her to help plan our wedding. She is great at what she does and treats you like family. She is known for her professionalism by her vendors and is a joy to work with. Katie has a great staff and has a way of providing those "special touches" to each and every event she plans. My husband and I are so grateful to have had the opportunity and pleasure to have worked with Katie on our wedding. She is extremely professional and provided quality customer service. She went above and beyond the call of duty at our wedding especially since it was out of state. She worked with our caterer and handled everything from coordinating deliveries with the staff at the venue, to the decorations, linens, flowers, favors, etc. for the ceremony and reception. She allowed us to completely enjoy our wedding and our guests and removed the stress that comes with planning and attending our wedding. We received wonderful feedback from family and friends on how lovely and professional she was, and they loved her creative decorations, especially the flowers and table bouquets, lighting and orchid arrangements around the room. Everything was perfect from the beginning to the end. Katie is wonderful to work with and we highly recommend her.

Monica and Kristal were amazing. In the short time they had they were able to come in and organize the entire wedding party. When my wife met them she felt so much stress come off of her and was able to relax and not stress over the little things. They came to the venue early to make sure everything went flawless. They were the main contact for vendors, so I didn't have to deal with them. If a situation arose they handled it, we did not know anything was wrong until the wedding was over. Monica was easy to talk to and was able to visualize what we wanted. she then took charge from there. We couldn't ask for a better team to help plan our wedding. I feel they went over and beyond with helping put together wedding decorations. Kristal was able to see a need and was handling before we knew it was needed. I couldn't ask for better wedding planers. I will highly recommend Cloud 9 to anyone who is need of a wedding planner. Thank you for your hard work.

I was stuck in a rut, making my Save the Date Postcards, until Nikki Dillon came to my rescue! I sent her pictures, and all my information, and she just, "Wow-ed" my husband and me! It was exactly the layout we wanted! Everything was beautiful! She definitely helped me out by creating this impressive piece of work! I also was telling her about my bridesmaids, and our wedding colors. She recommended me a few places to go to, physically, or via internet, for affordable dresses, and designs for decorations! She has incredible knowledge, and is very passionate about helping others, give her a call! I'm definitely going to reach out to her again, because she's got great wit, on things you can do to better your wedding planning for your special day! Thanks Nikki!!!

Bo & team, are unbelievably talented! They do amazing work and every detail is perfect whether the event is a lavish wedding or a small private event. I wanted to throw my 13 year old the birthday party of her dreams as she started her new journey as a teen (instead of waiting until 16, when they are not so sweet lol) I wanted a Hollywood movie premiere theme and boy did we get one! From the red carpet, velvet ropes, flowers galore, lush drapery, to the paparazzi backdrop that was personalized for her and friends to pose (with props)... Everything was perfect. We had framed movie posters lining the red carpet of all her favorite movies, and the cake! Oh my gosh...divine! Designs by Zima took care of every single thing and created something I couldn't dream of. As a busy working mom, i never had to worry. We will forever cherish her special day, and one day (not anytime soon) he will be designing her wedding:) Thank you so much Designs by Zima!

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

    Lindsey is AMAZING. she went above and beyond to help me with my wedding! I had an Indian wedding which involved a lot of different aspects/events. She helped me with the reception and made sure everything was taken care of. We had discussed certain tasks before I actually hired her, but as the event came closer, more things were added. She was totally nice about it and understood the stress! She was flawless and SO helpful. She worked very closely with some family members as well! Super sweet and caring! She works hard and takes her job seriously. She also has amazing ideas and is not afraid to put in the extra work to make sure your event is exactly how you want it.

    Derek was the DJ for our wedding in October 2015 and did a great job. He was helpful and made sure that everything went smoothly through the entire process. He suggested that I made a time line for him to follow so that everything went exactly how I had envisioned it and it was followed to a T! He also did a great job of taking requests and making sure the music went with the flow of the wedding and was in line with what my husband and I and our guests liked. Couldn't have asked for and better DJ!

    Paige was AMAZING! Not only was she affordable but she catered to my exact needs! I hired Paige to do the day of coordinating at my wedding this past Saturday. She was in charge of making the vision I had for my reception come to life! She put together everything exactly the way I wanted it, in a timely fashion, and was still able to help me with unexpected things throughout the day! She would call and check up on me throughout the day to give updates and make sure she helped me with anything else I needed! She was professional, responsive, calm, and efficient the entire way! I would hire Paige time and time again! Thank you for everything! You are truly and amazing wedding coordinator!

    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.
