We had a great experience with Mrs. Brown. My wife and I were pleased with her performance in planning our wedding and coordinating everything on the day of. She worked hard to make everything we wanted happen within our strict budget.

Marie Stark was an absolute life saver at my wedding. To put things bluntly, I had a very difficult wedding party to work with and she was nothing but patient with them. Not only that, but she managed to turn my wedding dream into a reality. The entire process of working with Marie was incredibly calming which was refreshing considering how stressful wedding planning can be. I could not be happier with Marie as my wedding coordinator. She managed everything that I couldn’t on my wedding day and I am truly grateful for all of her efforts. I highly recommend her!

My new husband and I and brides mom are so happy with the outcome with our ceremony. She made the whole thing flow so smoothly, brought a little fun and understanding into everything. Speaking to her before, during and after was easy and helped with relieving stress and anything you thought might be chaotic. Thank you so much for all your help! We are so happy.

Amazing service and assistance! They provided several quotes, options, and ideas even. They were able to deliver and pick up the wine glasses, flutes, chairs, and linens. They were kind, on time, and personable. Great service. I would and have already recommended them to others. They seriously made my wedding day stress-free.

My husband and I hired Haus 353 for our wedding October 5th, 2017. Since day one, they were so helpful and willing to make our visions come true. Our bouquets, centerpieces, cake flowers and everything else were more beautiful then I could have imagined. They were extremely prompt in responding and so easy to work with. I will definitley be recommending them to friends and family. Thank you so much!!!!!!!

Spoke with Shannon, she is so compassionate about making the wedding day perfect. She asked questions and shows very much that she would be there for me with anything I need. I can’t wait to work with her on my wedding day! I booked with her quickly because she is a jewel I couldn’t let get away! I’ll send another review after wedding ❤️ Chrystal

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.

Annemarie was a phenomenal wedding planner and we could not be happier with the job she did. She was extremely organized, coordinated with all the vendors, and thought of all the details. She had great communication with us and also did a ton of stuff in the background to make sure the day went smoothly. We are so grateful that Annemarie was our wedding planner and highly recommend her!!

Everything was great from the food to decor , I will definitely be working with the Expreience events again. They were so patient and welcoming. My baby shower was amazing and the food was even better. Great communication as well, seeing as though my plans were last minute because my original planner cancelled a week before they still worked with me and gave me a great experience at nearly half the price, the balloons were beautiful, cake was delicious, and everything was crafted to perfection. I Highly recommend .

Heart for Hospitality not only beautifully planned, created, set up, coordinated and took away all the stressors of wedding planning, but has now become our family!! My husband and I wanted to create a $100,000 wedding on a $10,000 budget (lol)! Him and I began pricing out every single rental company in San Diego county for our big day and quickly realized there was no way we could have a fabulous wedding within our $10,000 budget. Then shortly after- by the grace of God- Heart for Hospitality came to us!! To this day, even 7 months after our amazing wedding, we all are still in shock at how truly incredible and absolutely gorgeous our wedding turned out!!! There is absolutely no way in a million years we could have ever had our $100,000 dream wedding idea so stretigically well organized, magnificent and romantic within our $10,000 budget without Heart For Hospitality ❤!!!! With open arms and hearts of gold this team of family bends over backwards to truly create and customize your dream wedding -all within your budget!!! From antique style weddings to the stars of Hollywood- Heart For Hospitality WILL blow you away!!! (You can say I told you so 😉) Kelsie and her Heart For Hospitality team own all of their inventory- from barn wood tables, to linens, to chandeliers and florals, etc., they do it ALL!!! And best of all- they set up and style your entire wedding anywhere you wish and when it's all over they break it all down!! Without Kelsie and her team there is NO doubt in our minds that we would have ever had a wedding- let alone a wedding coordinated and styled so beautifully!!! Since our wedding in July of 2016, four of my great friends have used them for their weddings and say the SAME thing- they are the BEST!!!!! Thank you for all you did for us- we love you guys!!!! - ❤ The Rammels

Jennifer was amazing!!! We hired her as our day of coordinator for our wedding last month. The final month she worked with me to make sure I had all the details together, trouble shot problems, dealt with my vendors, and really got a full understanding of how I wanted my day to go. I could not have been happier with my choice to hire her. Bumps happen in planning and day of that you can’t control and I was so thankful to have her there for whatever I needed or couldn’t possibly do myself. She was punctual, amazing communicator, hard worker, and just plain bad add. I’m so grateful for her part in our best day!

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!

Karen is amazing! Words can't adequately express my appreciation of this wonderful lady. She did so much to make our event a success and to relieve the stress related to hosting a wedding. We hired Karen to be our "coordinator for the day" for our daughter's wedding. Even though the wedding was small (about 60 guests) and in our home, we wanted someone to help so that WE could be guests ourselves and enjoy the wedding. I did quite a bit of research before choosing and I'm so glad that we chose Karen. She has an infectious smile that puts you at ease immediately. She is also extremely professional and knowledgeable. She asked a lot of questions so that she would have a better idea of what we were envisioning. She had great practical ideas that helped with the flow of the event. We felt like we were in really good hands. When Karen arrived on the day of the wedding, she absolutely blew me away! I gave her a quick tour of everything that was happening and she just took it from there. It was like she was family and had been there a million times. She stayed two steps ahead all night and really made the evening stress free. She has a very unique quality in that she can take charge and provide direction in the nicest most nonabrasive way. When she lets guests know that it's time to move out to the patio for cocktails, or that we're ready for a toast, grand entrance, cake cutting etc. everyone listens and no one feels like they are being "bossed around". When guests left, she did so much to help wrap things up that I actually had to tell her to stop. She's so thoughtful. She pays attention to the smallest details and she really listens. I know Karen has done hundreds of events from large and elaborate to small and intimate. No matter what kind of event your planning, Karen will make it better and she will make your life easier! Thank you Karen for allowing us to relax and truly enjoy Maegan and Danny's wedding! Warm regards, Shelly and Bob

Maricela has been helping me to stay on top of my wedding planning, providing me with info. from different vendors according to my budget, creating samples of the boutonnieres for the groomsmen and bridesmaid's bouquets and always reaching out to me to meet for updates on the wedding planning progress. Maricela has been incredibly helpful. Regardless of my full schedule being a full time student and full time employee, I can attest to say that wedding planning has been a joyful, fun and wonderful experience. I highly recommend BellaLove-Events.

Glennie and her team was Everything I had hoped for and more! They were so helpful throughout the entire process, went above and beyond, and we’re so detail oriented and amazing. I really did not have to plan my wedding because they had it all planned for me. I just had a vision, I told him what I wanted, and they made it happen. I would highly recommend Glennie and her team To everyone I know. My wedding of 450 gas and having it on today’s was so fun and exciting. If I were to have it again in 10 years, I would definitely rebook with her.

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.
