I highly recommend AR wedding planners! We debated whether we needed a day-of coordinator, but in the end, due to a couple logistical challenges we decided to go for it. In hindsight I can’t imagine doing it any other way. Rebecca was incredible. Not only did she give me peace of mind by tackling those logistical challenges head-on, she was also extremely proactive. I knew I was in excellent hands from the very beginning. She asked all the right questions and ensured we had all the necessary information at our fingertips at exactly the right moments. She is very professional and handled any issues that came up with ease. Finally, she’s fun! She ensured we enjoyed our day completely stress and hassle-free, all while blending in seamlessly with friends and family. Thank you, Rebecca for being a part of our special day. We are so grateful for your help and would happily recommend you to anyone!

Amber and Max were AMAZING! I originally hired two event helpers through another woman who pulled out less than a week before my wedding. Thankfully I went onto Thumbtack, submitted an inquiry and within less than 20 minutes Amber sent me a message with a quote. She saved me! Amber and Max were so efficient and professional during my wedding. I didn't have a wedding planner, so I had so much on my mind and many things to worry about that day. I never once had to worry about Amber and Max, they were so on top of every little detail. I can't thank them enough for all their hard work!

Veronica was amazing!!! I hired her as a day coordinator for my wedding. I don't think she had a moment of rest from the time she arrived until she left. She handled the crises of the day remarkably and checked in with me regularly throughout. Did I mention that she also made my wedding cake, which was beautiful. She was just wonderful throughout... I enjoyed working with her and would recommend her 1000x to anyone looking for a Day of Coordinator.

Midsummer Night’s Project: I found Raquel on very short notice, 2 days before our party. My other team member was sick during the week & wasn’t sure she was going to make it to the party. Raquel is professional, punctual, sharp, personable, reliable and creative. I’ll tell you why… The Task: String artificial floral vines to sets of balloons in 2 hours or less. The day of the party there was a major detour to the venue. The street to get to the venue was blocked! The police officers guarding the blocks let me through after I explained to them I’ve got a party right where it’s being blocked & I’ve got all sorts of decorations. They let people through as long as you’ve got an event :). With that major detour Raquel still managed to be on time. She parked her car parallel to the blocked street (so smart!). When she got to the venue she gave me a warm smile. She knew I was a bit stressed with the whole detour issue. I explained to her in less than 5 minutes of my vision & she did a great job. Raquel is a great listener & a quick study. My other team member showed up and I had Raquel take the lead. She explained to her and eventually the event planner who came to help as well what to do. She has great communication skills. There were other things happening at the party that she was privy which I was clueless to & Raquel “translated” party lingo to me which helped me make quick & sounds decisions. I’ve only met Raquel that one time & I knew by her demeanor & work ethic that I can rely on her that I’m in good hands. My stress level really diminished…yay! Raquel didn’t do just the job given her, she went above & beyond. She was very creative & proactive. Without being asked, Raquel thought of a way to make the cake table look spectacular! Raquel is sensitive to my wants that she communicated with me her plan first. Raquel strategically placed floating floral vines at the back of the cake table. I believe Raquel has photos. I was so busy with everything else I didn’t find the time to take décor photos. The result was just beautiful! I think after reading this you’ll find that I cannot say enough good things about Raquel. I won’t be surprised the next time I ask her to rescue me that she’ll be booked. Raquel…thank you for everything! You made it such a magical day for us :). 

Pam, and her assistant Alex, were a godsend. I have been going through a lot, dealing with my mom's health issues and trying to plan my wedding at the same time. Pam stepped in about 5 months before the wedding and kept me on track, kept me organized, called me weekly to check in, and reassured me. I don't know what I would have done without her. She never tried to upsell me on vendors, she just made suggestions and was willing to work with me and my budget. I have received so many compliments about my beautiful wedding, how organized, and how on time everything was! I highly recommend Events, Etcetera for all your wedding planning needs!

Jane was amazing. She was very easy to work with, her work was beautiful. Being a bride is not easy, and planning a wedding yourself, as I did, is not easy as well, but she made the ordering process very straight forward. She made beautiful bouquets and boutonnieres for my wedding. She decorated my ceremony arch gorgeously, and she was able to order my ceremony isle rose petals a week in advance. She was kind and also on time. I would definitely hire her again for an event or whenever I renew my vows. #5Stars

She also made my day go smoothly on the wedding day and delt with all the hiccups that people created along the way so well that I didn't even know there were hiccups until it the next day. She is very professional and will take care of you!

We hired Clara to do our wedding. We were on a tight budget & it was in our backyard. Clara got all the yardwork done and organized everything. She maximized our budget by making all the centerpiece and bridal party floral. She worked hard to keep our budget and give us what we want. Overall job well done👏

How do I begin to tell you all how thankful I am that Marie Luciano came into my life?! By the time I had met Marie, my husband and I had been engaged for over a year. I was new to CA and had no family or friends close by to help us plan a wedding. My husband was overwhelmed with work, school and spending as much time he could traveling back and forth to his parents who are ill. So I began my search for a wedding planner! That's when I met Marie. After my husband and I met with her, I immediately felt stress lift off of my shoulders! From day one she made me feel like she genuinely cared about helping plan my dream wedding. Marie quickly understood what I wanted and started her search for vendors and ideas. Through this process, my husband and I have had the most difficult bumps in the road and Marie was there by our side the whole time. Her husband Greg is just as amazing as she is. He quickly offered to get ordained for us after losing our officiant so close to the wedding. They are a blessing! Not only did I get extremely lucky finding such a wonderful wedding planner but gaining a friend for life!!! I truly believe God placed her in our lives! I look forward to seeing all her future weddings!!

"I had the pleasure of working with Charles in an effort to put together a beautiful, elegant ceremony for my brother's wedding. Although I am not a wedding planner myself, I was looking for someone who I could consult for ideas and suggestions since they didn't have the budget for a professional wedding coordinator. I reached out to a number of different coordinators and explained my situation, and Charles was one of the few that was open and willing to work with me and offer professional advice. As the wedding day approached, I consulted Charles for ideas and explained what exactly the bride and groom were looking for and the budget they had. With that in mind, Charles was able to offer a number of great ideas and suggestions for their special day that were within budget and helped create an amazing, memorable day for the bride, groom, and all their guests. Although we were unable to have Charles there the day of the event, I am positive that it could have only been better had we been able to have him there with his professional eye. I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone who needs anything as simple as suggestions/professional advice or anything as big as a wedding planner to hand the reigns over to."

Jane and Teresa are wonderful! They are really a one stop shop! Not only did they do all the flowers for my wedding but they also did all my linen's and altered my wedding dress! Everything they did for me really tied all my wedding decor together and made it pop in a beautiful way! I was complemented on the flowers and table clothes all night long! Would defiantly go back to them for any event.

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.
