I hosted a baby shower for my daughter and so many things happened around planning that event. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feed my guest. However dynamic cuisine was there to save the day. Even after my guest list expanded at the last minute, Dynamic cuisine was able to accommodate my needs. My guest were over joyed with the flavors and selection of foods. I will definitely use Dynamic cuisine again at all my events. They also have the perfect name because everything was Dynamic!!

She made a video for our wedding and it was very well done! My husband and I were both very happy with how the video turned out! I would highly recommend her for any event planning or video production.

My experience with Debbie Kennedy Events & Design was absolutely phenomenal! Debbie and her team took my vision for my graduation celebration event, enhanced it, and executed the event flawlessly. Debbie stood out among all seven event planners I interviewed because of her extensive experience, professionalism, creativity, and take-charge attitude. It was a joy and pleasure to work with her. With Debbie and her team at the helm, I didn’t have a care in the world. I can’t wait to work with her again!

Val and Alex arrived on time and dressed and acted very professionally. It was great to have them tend to our guests so that we could relax and socialize with our guests. They made sure the food dishes were kept full, and helped serve food and keep everyone's drinks full so that everyone could enjoy the holiday party we hosted. Our guests were surprised and impressed that we had servers at our holiday party. We would gladly hire Val and Alex again for one of our future personal or corporate events.

Everyone always says to prepare yourself for something unexpected to go wrong on your wedding day. Because of Kristi everything was more than perfect! If anything did go wrong I was completely unaware. Kristi took care of EVERYTHING! She went above and beyond throughout my whole planning process, even on my wedding day brought extra decorations from her house to the venue when we found out we had a more room to fill! I can't say enough about her. True professional and a real sweetheart on top of that. Thank you so much Kristi for taking care of me and my family and making our day so wonderful!

Michelle Rogers with Lighthouse Catering did an event for The Central Arizona Chapter of the National Forum for Black Public Administrators and City of Phoenix. I am the President Elect for the Central Arizona Chapter for National Forum for Black Public Administrators as well as Management Assistant II to the City Manager for the City of Phoenix. The event was for 100 people and she provided barbecue beef, chicken, baked beans, salad, desserts and drinks. The keynote speaker was the City Manager of Phoenix. The food was excellent and everyone was pleased. I would definitely recommend this caterer for small and large events.

The 3D team was wonderful to work with. Karen was able to focus our direction and style and gave us a plan to work through in phases. She was well versed in furniture specifications, fabrics and finishes. Her use of 3D technology really helped us visualize what the final outcome of our home will be. We look forward to working with her team in the future.

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

Working with Desert Vines Events was such a fantastic experience. I was an out of town bride who had to do a lot of coordinating and planning from a distance. Having Desert Vines at my disposal for brainstorming sessions, errand running, venue scouting, flower arranging and everything in between, was such a blessing. They really are a one stop shop, taking care of everything from A to Z. They hand crafted and created a dessert table to die for, decorated a 10,000 square foot rustic barn (inside and out) and managed the guest gift bags at the hotel. I am also the type of person who has been planning this day for years and years and knew exactly what I wanted for the big day. Desert Vines not only carried out my every wish to perfection but also made very helpful suggestions along the way that only a professional in the event planning industry would know. I would recommend Desert Vines Events to anyone looking to host an event to remember.

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.??

Not only did Jenna come prepared, she wowed the guests. Absolut Bartending is top notch and absolutely delivers! On behalf of ILoveSedonaRealEstate.Com- we LOVE Absolut Bartending...

I hired Aioli to cater my wedding and could not have been happier. The food was amazing, the selection was incredible and the staff was an absolute delight. They took care of everything leaving me to enjoy my special day. My guests we so impressed that many left with business cards so they could book them for their upcoming events. I am not one to write reviews, but wanted to let the world know how outstanding Aioli was that I could not resist. I will totally use them again for my baby shower in the up coming months! Thank you Ailoi for truly going above and beyond to help make my wedding that much better!!!

    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.
