Professional, experienced, and very competent. What you expect, what you need, and what you deserve for your wedding or event. In our initial consultation with 3 Little Birds Event Planning we described what we were thinking and our budget, and not to mention our compressed timeline. 3 Little Birds Event Planning was upfront about the challenges of the timeline, but expressed confidence that it could be done. Venue and vendor options were presented to meet our budget as well as options and ideas that were outside our budget should we want to incorporate additional things. Planning any project and event takes a very organized, detail oriented, experienced and well connected planner/company. But when it comes to a wedding, you only have one chance, there are no do overs, and you need someone who will make everything happen. Jessica Smith (3 Little Birds Event Planning) is all of the above and more. They can handle all of the business aspects (contracts, vendors, schedules, timelines, permits, etch, etc), but she also has an artistic eye and design style that provided such amazing ideas and direction to enhance and implement our theme. Trust me the small details that you may not think about make a HUGE difference. With my work schedule so hectic it was impossible for me get decorations or run around doing errands. Having a full service planner was not only helpful it was necessary. The money I would have lost from missed work, by far covered the difference between a day of event planner and full service planner. My recommendation is to go with the full service planner... it gives you the opportunity to have your event and vision grow organically as you meet and continually consult with your planner... not to mention the time and headaches your save yourself, trust me you will thank yourself for it. 3 Little Birds Event Planning is established and has many vendor connections (Florists, DJ, Photographers, Catering, Venues, Decorations, etc., etc.). What I really like is the fact that 3 Little Birds/Jessica Smith doesn’t force or pressure you to use her vendors. We vetted her vendors and chose to go with some of them, and some we didn't. All the vendors she recommended are professional and established and we were very pleased with the vendors she recommended. The vendors we didn’t use were not because of anything deficient, but rather because we had existing industry contacts and already knew great photographers and videographers. 3 Little Birds worked with the vendors they provided as well as the one we selected independently and brought everything together seamlessly. On the big day, things could not have gone any smoother. I was impressed, as were all of the guests. I was able to be present in the moment and truly enjoy our special day. All I can say is thank you, it was a true storybook/fairytale wedding.

I hired the K. Simone Group to staff my birthday party. Her team was highly professional and responsive to all my guests' needs throughout the night. The bartenders offered great, quick drinks and top-notch customer service, ensuring that party goers were having an awesome time. Kea and her team went above and beyond contracted duties, helping out wherever they could when it came to finishing off decorations or cutting and serving cake. I was pretty carefree the night of my party, and it was all thanks to the great event planning services by the K. Simone Group! I will definitely use them again and will refer them in the future.

Ricki throws the greatest parties! Her events leave no detail untouched. Everything is perfect. And the best part is how much money she saves. Ricki and Special Event Genie have been doing events for my business group Wildfire Networking for several years now. We have annual holiday parties with sit down dinners and dancing to a DJ. Always gorgeous decorations, great food, good drinks, and at least 100 people. Ricki also arranges quarterly cocktail parties we call "mixers" and scores some great locations around West Los Angeles for us. I am looking forward to having her help with my next big birthday party! Call Special Event Genie if you want your wishes granted perfectly!

Arash helped me design my retail gadget store. After dealing with a prior designer who just didn't understand my vision, it was a blessing that I found Arash. Just speaking to him for the first time you can tell he is a special person. He took time to really understand my vision and dreams for my business. He spent countless hours on the phone with me to not only design my store but to build a solid foundation for my business. Each element of the store was carefully thought out. He would always give me options, then ask for my input, and give his input. We spent about 3 months designing my store together and I am so happy with the results! I told Arash that I wanted store that is unique and cool looking and that is exactly what I got. Almost everything was custom made and the quality is top notch. Everyone who enters my business now is very impressed with the look and feel of the store. He treated me like a brother and my business as his own. I would recommend Arash to anyone who needs help with design or business consulting. He is so knowledgeable and the definition of passionate!

Michelle was AMAZING and so easy to work with. She communicated with us throughout our entire event planning process. She was beyond patient, and really came through the day of when our caterer and food truck had forgotten some key items - and she drove out to pick them up! We couldn't have asked for a better event coordinator and highly recommend!

Joanne and her team were amazing to work with. They're a newer company and ready to go above and beyond to make your day happen. She was responsive and thorough, which made wedding planning less stressful and fun! She gave my husband and I a lot of options and were able to work with our budget without compromising the things we wanted. She connected me with a local florist and videographer. Their services exceeded my expectations and were great to work with as well. Joanne also arrived early on the day of my wedding to make sure the vendors were on track. It was a pleasure working with her team and I'd highly recommend their services.

BEST EVENT PLANNER, HANDS DOWN!!!! I hired Ingrid and her team last minute for decorations and event planning for a work party. By far, the best decision I've ever made. My wedding is in August, and I've went along and hired her for that event as well. She's proficient, efficient, and a visionary!! Her ideas are so thoughtful and personally organized! I am so impressed with her work and her expertise. She never ceased to amaze me. I got so many compliments on her flower arrangements and decorations that for so perfectly with the theme. I can't wait to see what she's got up her sleeve for my wedding in August. Also, this wasn't the first time I've hired Ingrid for an event. I hired her back in November 2015 for my MIL 50th birthday party. Her husband and herself, arrived much earlier for setup and made sure everything was the way we wanted it to look, before hey left the scene. They are so professional and such hard workers. I got a ton of compliments on their work that our family friend also hired her for her services for their wedding too! I will always refer Ingrid, without a doubt! She's my go-to person since Nov 2015.

I am an la based chef who was recently hired by Joelle. She is the first event coordinator who I worked with since launching the la branch of my business. For our first event together she was very clear in relaying her clients wishes and provided me with support throughout the planning process. The client was ultimately very pleased with Joelle’s efforts, as was I. Looking forward to our next job together!

Iveta is incredibly professional and talented and was able to work with our budget. We had a chat on the phone about 2 months out from our wedding, and a brief meeting about 2 weeks out. I told her what I wanted, what my budget was, and showed her some pictures I had saved for inspiration. She completely exceeded expectations and brought our celebration to the next level. It was also very hot on our wedding day and she made sure to replace or fix any flowers that wilted in the heat. I would work with her again, in a heartbeat! Thank you for making our special day beautiful :)

Outstanding service, with every detail premeditated and handled with expertise! My first experience with Livelyhood occured while my company was planning a video launch celebration in Manhattan a few years ago. Our anticipated audience included the elite of the music industry. Tamara Hood, CEO of Livelyhood, stepped in to transform our event into a classy and well rounded event for all of our attendees, foreseeing some major details that simply were not initially on our radar. Our following collaborations were just as successful, with Tamara and her brilliant team never failing to deliver their best work! I strongly recommend Livelyhood to anyone who is looking to create the perfect event, they are certain to put their entire heart into it! Chris Rob CEO, Soul Soldier Entertainment

I found Katheryne through a friend who recently used her for an event and only heard amazing things. I throw dinner parties that are usually connected to a restaurant but decided to work with a personal chef that i could curate my menu with. Katheryne was everything and more then i expected. She came so prepared with suggestions and idea she to filter off of mine. The menu was made with all fresh ingredients that she went that morning to get from the farmers market. Her timely manner on creating the dishes to getting them out to my guests was impeccable. I will 100% be using Katheryne for future events.

After months of looking for someone who could help my company put together one of our annual corporate events, we found Ms. Pratt at Pat Thomas Design. Working with her was so great. We were able to completely delegate all aspects of our event to her. She was impressively responsive and professional in all ways. She was able to deliver everything with enough time. She did not let any details go unseen. Our guests and company were very impressed by the organization and logistics behind our event. Finally, the value of her services was nothing compared to all the work and dedication Danielle Pratt put into it. 10/10 would recommend getting in touch with her.

Where to begin! Ruby was a savior during my wedding events and was able to offload so much of my stress and attend to all last minute details I was unable to do myself due to time constraints. I was able to trust and rely on her 100% and she did not let me down she knew exactly what I wanted and needed. Ruby made detailed timelines and checklists for all my events. She helped me plan and execute my wedding ceremony and it was perfect. She was able to offer me affordable vendors for photography, wedding dessert table that had a beautiful fruit and fondu, icecream popsicles/kulfi with customized labels passed out during our wedding that my guest raved about how delicious they were till today, decor for my wedding ceremony, and she was able to offer me multiple options for makeup and hair vendors for my wedding party. Overall ruby was amazing her attention to detail and her genuine kindness and sincerity was what made her so great at what she does. She went above and beyond for me and my events. She was my go to person for all my questions and was able to keep me calm and organized winding down to the events. I definitely recommend to booking her asap for all of your upcoming events. She does it all!

We liked Kelly so much for our wedding, we hired her for all of our other events too! She handled the whole weekend, 3 different events, with calm professionalism, style, poise, and good humor. By the end she felt like one of the family, and our guests hugged her goodbye. We will be recommending her to everyone for any event and we will definitely be engaging her again!

We are having a backyard wedding this weekend and needed a spa and garage door concealed with drapery. The owner of Infuse Designs, Luis, came over last night and put up the pipe and drapes and did the lighting and it looks AMAZING. I was worried about it and he far exceeded my expectations. Not only does he do fantastic work but he's just a really nice person. Highly recommend him for wedding drapery and lighting.

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.
