Actually I didn't meet the LadyMarry coordinator and florist, until the rehearsal day, because I was planning my wedding remotely in New York. They are very responsive and patient to my endless questions, and did a great job about organizing the rehearsal and communicating with the other vendors. I always saw Melissa and Donna running around. Hiring you was the best decision I made for my wedding. Thank you!

We were extremely happy with Taneva Events. We wanted a simple but elegant wedding in Hawaii and Velina at Taneva Events provided that and more for us. She worked with us on everything from the smallest detail on the dinner napkins to working with vendors on logistical details, setup on the day of the wedding and ensuring our day was perfect. We did not have a clear idea of what we wanted to do for our wedding besides the fact that we wanted to keep it simple and take advantage of the natural beauty of the setting. Velina was really helpful from the start, brainstorming ideas with us, and making suggestions for the decor that we would have never thought of on our won. We did not want traditional flower centerpieces, and Velina was able to accommodate us by creating beautiful pineapple centerpieces, and tied them all together with the runner, candles, handmade napkins, and pedestals that she placed the pineapples on. Everybody complemented the decor and the bridal bouquet that she created from traditional Hawaiian flowers. We could not have had such a beautiful and smooth day without Velina's help. Planning for a wedding is always stressful, but Velina eased a lot of our stress and was always a pleasure to work with.

Robyn made my bridal shower a total surprise! I was not expecting it at all. It was based on me, as the theme was what I love best, horses. I could tell she had spent so much time researching to find decorations and party favors that would make my bridal shower so special. She also helped plan my backyard wedding. I'm not a very good party planner myself so had no idea where to start. When I hired her, she stepped right in and took the control I was looking for. I could relax and have a great time at my wedding knowing every little detail was being watched and taken care of by Robin.

Anita Starr from A Starr Events will be the best part of your wedding planning experience. She is professional, kind, and highly experienced in event planning and flower design. If you are looking for ideas, she has so many reference pictures and website suggestions for your every need. If you already have a clear idea of what you want, she executes your vision perfectly. She is highly organized and will keep you on track with what you should be organizing for your wedding day. The day of the wedding, everything went off without any problems. Somehow the payment for our musician had been misplaced by one of my bridesmaids and Anita paid him with her own personal account. I was so embarrassed that she had to do this, but it just shows how committed she is to making your day go off without a hitch. During our planning process she went through every detail meticulously and everything was placed exactly where we had discussed. Anita was also my florist and I cannot express how gorgeous the arrangements turned out! All of my guests were fighting at the end of the night to take the arrangements home. I had a vision for my arrangements and decor greenery and Anita brought it to life even more beautifully than the inspiration photos. Hiring A Starr events was the best decision I made during my wedding planning process. Where I needed inspiration and ideas, Anita was there providing beautiful suggestions that met my theme and vision perfectly. Where I needed someone to execute my exact vision, Anita went above and beyond my expectations. Whether you are a bride/groom looking for a fountain of suggestions or you are looking for a disciplined professional to execute your vision to the very last detail, Anita Starr is your perfect coordinator. Do not miss out on the opportunity to work with her and her staff--I cannot recommend her enough!!

I am so grateful to have gotten to work with Naseem in planning my wedding. She's ebullient and has a contagious enthusiasm about weddings. I kept wanting to play it cool and pretend I was above all the girly wedding stuff, but I couldn't help but get excited every time I talked to Naseem. She unlocked some of that wedding enthusiasm in me, and I'm so glad she did, because it made the planning experience a zillion times better. Also want to add that Naseem has a special talent for making luxurious paper art without spending a fortune. She knows how to use craft to transform the most humble components into beautiful details that make an event feel special and meaningful.

Thank you Clarissa for making my daughter's party a success.

You guys were THE BEST! Daniel and I couldn't be happier with your choices--you definitely read the crowd perfectly! Our wedding had a mix of all ages and personalities, and everyone LOVED the music and flow of the evening. We especially felt very catered to -- you kept checking on us and making sure everything felt right (even in the chaos of a wedding evening). The way you timed the ending of the evening was amazing! My family and I want that mix!

    I was tasked with coordinating my Father in Law's 80th birthday party, and had an unexpected and unfortunate foot injury. Luckily, Sania of Saba Rentals responded to my last minute need for help with decorating. Sania was a pleasure to work with! She was extremely attentive, listened to my wants, needs, and vision for the event and helped me bring it all together on very short notice, all with staying within my budget. Sania was professional, upbeat, and a pleasure to work with. I would work with Sania again in a heartbeat, and would highly recommend her for your event planning needs.

    My wife and I had thought we'd do our own wedding planning. We'd found our venue and vendors on our own; how hard could the finishing touches be? Especially for the small, simple event we envisioned? In hindsight, we'd accomplished only the easiest parts of the process, and without Diana and Tammy's help I don't know how we would have had the wonderful, stress-free event that we did. While we hired them as day-of-coordinators, they provided much more than day-of services, taking over vendor interactions months in advance of the actual event, actively helping to plan table layouts and other details, and in weekly video chats they provided organization and discipline that kept my wife and I on-task. There's so much work behind even a "simple" wedding that we hadn't even thought about, but Diana and Tammy guided us through it all. They were lifesavers; our wedding day was everything we'd hoped that it would be, and Diana and Tammy were absolutely critical to making it happen.

      I came to Alyssa with no idea how to propose to my girlfriend and she helped me with everything down to the ring. She went above and beyond my expectations and anything I could ever accomplish by myself. My now finance was shocked and adored it. I will upload pictures of the beautiful location and decoration that was put in. Definitely recommend, having her plan our wedding now

      Before visiting another wedding planner page, stop RIGHT NOW and hire Katie! We hired her for day of coordination at our wedding and from the minute she got there until she left she was simply fantastic to work with. Even before the day she was so helpful with any little thing I had a question on from vendors to day of timeline to set up details. She was also super flexible when we wanted to change the contract a little and have her come earlier in the day to help with the set up. Throughout the entire process she was so professional, quick to respond, organized, thoughtful, and overall a really down to earth and nice person. We felt no stress the day of the wedding and I know we owe this to Katie. She is a dream to work with!

      I'm not even sure where to start other than to say we had a blast working with Britt and meeting her dog Bixby on many occasions. Britt is super laid back but handled all of our wedding details perfectly. We had no idea how many things went into a wedding and our planning timing was getting short, so we needed someone to help us out because we didn't know what we didn't know. Britt helped guide us through everything and took so much pressure off our shoulders. We loved working with her. Thanks Britt :)

      I was a bridesmaid at Rachel's own wedding. Rachel planned all of the decorations herself and the end result was stunning. Having been a bridesmaid before, I was impressed by the level of organization & planning that she put into all of the details. Despite having to transport everything across the country, the decorations arrived unscathed and neatly packed in their boxes. She knew where everything was and where & how it should be placed. The decorations not only looked beautiful, but complemented the unique style of her venue. Thanks to Rachel's planning, no one in the wedding party was stressed during the decorating, the venue looked beautiful, & the evening was full of lovely memories.

      Rebecca at Danzante Events was the best decision we made in our wedding planning process. We were so behind on everything trying to plan it ourselves. She turned it all around the second we hired her. She found us the best service providers all within our set budget. She answered every question promptly and solved every problem like a professional. She also cared about us. Her goal the whole time was to make us happy and she did that better than I think anyone else could have. She's resourceful, thoughtful, smart, diligent and resilient. We couldn't thank her or recommend her enough!

      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.
