Jessica and Dustin are AMAZING, hands down the best wedding planners we could have hired for our wedding and I honestly don’t know what I would have done without them. These two truly, truly love what they do, and the fact that they both went through planning their own wedding together speaks millions to their work chemistry. All of my friends, family, and other vendors who interacted with Jessica and Dustin had the same experience - they are wise, quick on their feet, detail oriented, and kind while still keeping everyone in line when needed. By the end of the night, we felt like Jessica was a part of our family. My biggest regret of the wedding was not hiring Jessica and Dustin earlier on in the planning. We hired 3LB as day of coordinators, but it is sooo worth having Jessica and Dustin around to help make decisions throughout the process. They are SO skilled at what they do, will take on any challenge you throw at them, and from the moment I spoke to Jessica, I knew I could trust her with everything. I am so beyond grateful to have found Jessica and Dustin, and am looking forward to the next family member to get married so I can work with them again!

I recommended Ricki to work on a relative's wedding. She did a great job and worked with the bride throughout the entire process. She was able to gauge the bride's needs and accommodate her. Ricki was able to provide discounts through her many contacts. Ricki knows all the pitfalls and possible problems that can occur throughout the wedding planning process. She works hard to prevent any mishaps from occurring. She was on call and present whenever the bride needed her and worked hard at the wedding to make sure everything went smoothly. It was a beautiful wedding and everything went seamlessly. Bravo, Ricki!!!!

Ms. Eulina Davis was such a delight to work with, she helped us navigate through aspects of our wedding that we didn't even know we needed. We had a mostly DIY wedding and with every meeting we had she listened to our ideas and helped us narrow down what we actually needed and what would just be a waste of our time and money. We were trying to keep to a budget and she gave us fantastic budget friendly options for our event. The number one thing i can tell you from my experience, Is that in those last two weeks before your wedding, when you are starting to freak out about everything being finished on time and you feel like you're friends and family don't get it (eveb though they do, but you're a stressed out mess and can't see it) she's going to send you a text or give you a call, she will make you feel that support that you need and and ask you how she can help, take her up on it, delegate as much as you can, she truly is there to help you.

Michelle was an absolute godsend. We were planning a wedding for about 150 people at a venue where we had to bring in absolutely everything - from the chairs and silverware, to the outdoor kitchen, dumpster, and trash bags. Needless to say, there were a lot of moving pieces that needed to be pulled off within pretty precise time frames. Michelle and her team were up to the challenge, and exceeded all expectations. Not only did she create and execute a meticulous timeline for the day of, but she went above and beyond in every way. She made herself available to our questions whenever we had them and shared with us so many invaluable pieces of wedding planning wisdom she's picked up during her extensive experience as an event planner/coordinator. She had ideas and insights that we never even considered, and even offered advice that helped us cut down on costs in several areas of our budget. She was also our lifesaver in the weeks leading up to the event, completely managing all vendor communication and double checking our work so that we could use he time we had left to shore up all the small details and complete last minute DIY projects. The day-of flowed so wonderfully, and during the few times there were hiccups, Michelle was already in problem-solving mode by the time I noticed them. She was also always composed and centered, and served as a calming presence for us during what could have been an otherwise very stressful day. Michelle and her team were the glue that held our wedding together, and we are so grateful for their help in making it truly the best day of our lives. Hire Flyte44!

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.

Joelle is the best day-of-wedding coordinator you could hire. She was very responsive in texts and emails. She was available to meet in person to go over details or pick up props. She helped create the wedding of my dreams and thanks to her, I didn’t have to worry about anything at my wedding. I am forever grateful for Joelle’s hard work and so glad she contacted me on Thumbtack.

I hired Michelle an Eimee from Elegant and Modern Events for my small wedding. I was on a tight budget and they gave me a quote that seemed reasonable. During the wedding planning Michelle and Eimee were very professional, answering tons of my emails and questions. They were always fast to answer and very polite and understanding. We met at the reception venue to go through the details and I couldn't help, but notice how nice, friendly and easy to talk they are! During the meeting Michelle and Eimee gave me some valid suggestions and also offered to help with rentals, which saved me a lot of headache. They sent me the options of possible flowers and allowed me to pick what designs I like the most. I wanted something simple, but cute, and their design matched my expectations very well! We met one more time to go over the details and they brought me some samples that I absolutely loved! While being busy at work and being unable to do as many DIY projects as I originally intended, I kept adjusting the order and add more and more stuff, but Michelle and Eimee were very understanding and had everything ready by the day of the wedding. What I loved the most about working with them is that they were able to set up 2 different wedding sites at the same time, since they were 2 of them! They also promptly transferred some of the decoration from the ceremony to the reception site and quickly set it up before the guests showed up! Honestly, when I saw all the decorations and flowers set up, I was shocked how nice it looked. I also got a lot of compliments on the bouquets and centerpieces. By the end of the wedding they were all taken by the guests! I can't thank them enough for making my wedding so relaxing and feel very well taken care of! I would highly recommend Michelle and Eimee to anyone who needs any flower arrangements or rental services!

Omg the wedding planner and decorator sent from the Gods!! A bit dramatic for me to say, i know, but Nicole saved me! I tried to plan my own wedding, even got my mom involved and that took a turn for the worse. Nicole met with us, spoiled us with cold champagne, we talked about every detail and it she hit the ground running. It was amazing to see her level of expertise and decisiveness. So happy she could plan and decorate my wedding so magnificently ! You are an angel and I recommend Nicole and her fun team to anyone who is looking for a planner or designer. Chic, professional, and responsive!

Working with Linda was the easiest part of planning my wedding! She is such a great person to hold your hand during wedding planning. She was great at the follow-up and even better at the follow-through. I will definitely be recommending her to EVERYONE and will keep her in my Rolodex for future events I have to put together. I was happy to learn that she doesn't just plan weddings. I love you, Linda!!! Thanks, again!

Jessell and Perfectly Events were exactly what we wanted. I had been planning the wedding from the beginning and knew that it would be better to hire a coordinator for the month leading up to the wedding. My wife and I instantly liked Jessell when we met with her as she was punctual and was really on top of her game when it came to answering all our questions. The month of the wedding, she was effectively communicating not only with us but with our vendors, making sure that they were coming and that they were ready to perform. Then on the actual wedding day, she was awesome. During the church ceremony, we had a nightmare of a church coordinator (appointed to us by our church) and Jessell handled her well. She was also really helpful for small things such as helping pin the flowers and finding a replacement ring bearer as some of ours went MIA. For the reception, she really allowed us to enjoy the wedding. We even got to eat the food and cake (which Jessell and her assistant actually delivered to our table!) I can have a type A personality, but thankfully, Jessell was there to make sure the event went smoothly and on-time. I also have to compliment her for the extra steps she took such as in the decorations and food delivery. She really went above and beyond and my wife and I are so happy she was involved in our wedding. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering having a month of coordinator.

There aren't enough positive things to say about Sanaz. She is like that fairy godmother that you just want to have around to perfect and make pretty everything in your life, especially your wedding. She goes above and beyond for the all the details she manages. She literally keeps you on task from the minute you start working with her to the end of the wedding, and even post-wedding. She has an inclusive network of vendors and artists and she has a great taste in arts. She helped up to go through the whole process and gave us advice on choosing the right vendors. She also knows local artists. She introduces us to a ceramic artist for our favors and she made cute ornaments as our favors. I strongly recommend Sanaz for wedding planning.

During our engagement my fiance and I lived in separate states, so planning a California wedding while living in Texas was no easy task! Lauren took all the last minute stress away and made sure my husband and I actually enjoyed our wedding day instead of worrying about every detail. She is literally an ANGEL! Highly, highly recommend this lovely lady to take care of your "happily ever after".

I was hesitant to get a planner at first because we were working with a very small budget, but Ira was (is) absolutely amazing. She worked within our budget, helped my plans materialize and made my wedding day beyond incredible. She is such a hard worker, so kind, and very knowledgeable for the planning industry. Thank you Ira, you are beautiful, inside and out!!

Kelly of Bella B Events was FANTASTIC! She went above and beyond the call of duty for my daughter's wedding and we couldn't have asked for anyone better. She spent so much time with us pre-wedding to make sure all of your wishes were communicated to her and she handled herself as well as our wedding day in the most professional manner. I highly recommend Kelly & Bella B Events to do the same for you!

Marlene, from start to finish, was fantastic. We began working with her only a short while prior to our wedding and she was a saving grace. She ensured we got our timeline settled, made suggestions to help logistically, and then executed that timeline as best as could be expected (despite the groom needing to make changes the day before and the day of the wedding). I've heard only good things about how the event went, and I don't think it would have been as successful without Marlene's guidance and aide. Thank you Marlene. Reina & Richard

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.
