Not only did Fresh & Fizzy provide excellent service but Drew's knowledge and advice was invaluable in planning our event. We ended up having him and his team do much more than we thought we would and we were so happy that we did.

Michael is 5 stars in all aspects. I needed a bartender for my husband's office party. He was easily reachable by text/email with all my questions pre party. Michael even made a special butter rum for one of our signature drinks. Very professional, easy to talk to and engaging to all the guests. During the "down" time he would help toss cups and clean up without me even asking. I already hired him again for our next party. I wish I had met him sooner! He does event planning, flower arrangements, home organization and who knows what else. Hire him for a job well done and someone you can depend on.

AnnaMarie did a fantastic job coordinating my wedding. I did most of the prep work, and then she made sure the day went off without a hitch! She made sure follow my wishes for the overall feel of the day and there was no detail left out. We definitely couldn't have done it without her! I would recommend her to anyone I know for wedding/event coordination and planning. Thank you for making our day so special!

First and Foremost, Victoria (owner of the Co.) is Phenomenal! She has Exveptional knowledge in what she does, and will help you every step of the way! Victoria has AMAZING customer service skills, and replies in a flash! She truly goes above & beyond to make everything Perfect for my event! I honestly couldn't have picked a better company to help me with my event! Plus, Danny & Nick were pretty darn Awesome bartenders! Danny has AMAZING communication skills! He checked in with me frequently to make sure I got everything I needed, and to remind me that they were both there to support me with anything needed. They completely took care of setting up, service, cleaning, breaking down the bar, and moving their racks back to the rental designated pickup area (back to area where it was placed). Danny even checked with me if that was the correct rental pickup designation! Don't get me wrong, Nick was totally AMAZING too! But I just spoke to Danny more at the event, as he was the lead bartender. Although, all three of them went over & beyond, excelled my expectations! You must try them out! They have the Best prices, the Best customer skills, the Best people for your event! Stacy

I walked in the office in the beginning of Jan, and my wedding was in Feb. l was super frustrated before I met them, and was seeking help for flower decoration of my ceremony, video and DJ. The team did a wonderful job in making plans for this rush event. The center decoration was a perfect match to what I was looking for. Well done!

An associate recommended Rainbow Chefs to provide the food for an event I was planning for a family gathering. I decided to go through with their services. There were kids and adults participating so I was a little nervous about how it would go, but everyone had a great time! It was so fun and interactive for the kids. The food was delicious! Would definitely recommend Rainbow Chefs!

I was planning a baby shower for my first grandchild. I needed centerpieces. I found Mariane on Thumbtack. I was impressed with her responsiveness to my request, first of all, but also with her consistent and prompt communication with me during the planning process. She delivered the centerpieces on time, and they were lovely.

Working with limelight has truly been a blessing! I feel like the wedding process is such a big blur, and both Khadija and James have given my family and I clarity. The amazing part is that they work with your budget, and find ways to make ends meet. My wedding is in July, and I honestly can't wait to see the finished product! If you're planning an event Limelight is the way to go :)

Oh my goodness, I was so, so impressed with Cheri's cooking. I've never, and I mean never, tasted a turkey that was as tender and flavorful as hers. I'm getting hungry right now just thinking of it. She catered our holiday party, and the depth and delight of all her amazing dishes tantalized all the guests. All her dishes we're cooked and baked to perfection. She's a genius in the kitechen, with a down-home, nurturing spirit to boot. I highly recommend Cheri for any catering event you're planning in the future. Your guest will rave that it's the best catered food they've ever had.

Beth is a wonderful, understanding, patient and caring florist. She truly loves her job and has a passion for floral design. She is also great about coordinating day of events. I hired Beth to do flowers for my Mexican themed wedding, as well as assist me in day of coordination. She went as far as traveling with me to a pick-your-own dahlias farm where we decided on which flowers would be the best for my bouquets and arrangements the day before the wedding. Beth is also timely, responds to emails very quickly and is very well organized. I have recommended her to other friends for their weddings and they also had very positive experiences with her. When I consulted her for advice on my wedding coordination, Beth had wonderful insights and opinions due to her years of experience. In short, Beth has a great eye for design and is very patient with her clients. I know I was always changing my mind and on the fence, and Beth did a great job keeping me on track and helping me make important decisions regarding my floral arrangements and wedding coordination.

Dina is the kindest, hardest working, calmest person you could work with. Her particular talent is decorating, which was tasteful and gorgeous for our outdoor Bar Mitzvah. She also shopped and contracted vendors for us. She made beautiful flowers arrangements from Traders Joes and bought perfect catering food from Whole foods. We had a fabulous pizza oven and she planned activities for the kids that made the day both beautiful and special. thank you, Dina!

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.
