I used Eclectic Affairs for my wedding day of coordination on 9-5-15. Laura and her team exceeded my expectations! Laura was always quick to respond and ready to lend a helping hand. Planning a wedding can get really stressful at times and Laura definitely took a lot of the stress off of me. I was over the moon when I arrived at the venue to see all my details come to life. All of my decor ideas were better than I imagined thanks to Laura and her team putting everything in it's place. Many of my guests said "it was the best wedding they have ever been to!" My big day could not have come to life without Laura and her team. Not only that but she kept the flow of the wedding on time and smooth. Ryan and I would like to say a HUGE thank you for all your help and hard work. We will never forget how wonderful our wedding day was.

I had Sgt Brown DJ one of my house parties it was by far the best I've thrown because of the amazing music that was played! I know I'll be asking them to DJ for future house parties and even my wedding and suggest you do the same!

Kevin & Phil were awesome for our small wedding last month! We ended up needing a DJ fairly last minute and stumbling upon a company with my initials just seemed like fate! Kevin was super responsive to all my requests, calls and emails. Easy to work with; great music; and overall very professional! Highly recommend!

Take a Break (Tami) has great ideas and works hard to give you what you want as far as an event planner she is just starting out but her positive energy gets you excited for the party you are planning and please remember sometime in our life we were all "starting out" so if you hire her give her a break because she will work it for you and as time goes by I can see her experience being absolutely awesome and If you need any day to day errands done that you don't have time for or just don't want to do she will do them she can do it one time or you can hire her to pick up your cleaners every Thursday and she will and deliver and my opinion the only thing she is lacking is charging what she's worth she undercharges for sure and I teased her about that I wanted to give her a lesson on charging a good price lol I liked her sense of humor so she is new to the business of party planning but she has got creative ideas and she did a good job with my daughters 21st birthday decorations and then I hired her to do my personal errands for two weeks because I was busy with work and family down from out of town for the birthday party I do know she doesn't pick up children because she's making sure that she is licensed for that but she did take my cat to the vet for me she is an animal lover very good with kids and animals. Thanks Tami

Jennifer did a fantastic job as our event planner for our wedding. She was extremely organized, communicative, helpful, and so easy to work with. She executed our vision perfectly, and we were really happy with the design of our wedding. She is an amazing resource for other vendors, and had excellent recommendations to enhance our big day. Thank you, Jennifer, for ALL you did for us; you made our day one we will never forget! Book her - you will be glad you did!

Generally, bespoke describes a high degree of customization and involvement of the end user in the production of the goods. Boutique means a business that serves a sophisticated or specialized clientele. Posh & Posy Events creates beautiful, personalized affairs that are tailored to your tastes. It means that we get to know you inside and out -- your likes and dislikes, your hopes and dreams, what moves and motivates you -- before we design an event that will make your guests say "Wow!" We have three simple offerings: wedding essentials, wedding planning and enchanted elopements. The wedding essentials program goes to the very core of what is necessary to make sure that your wedding day is as smooth as a silk! It is so much more than a day-of package. It's logistics are creating timelines, scheduling vendors and personal assistance. It oversees the set up, make the details come together and clean it all up in the end. We always have at least two planners at each wedding, and we never limit the number of hours that we work on your wedding day. The fees start at $2400. The wedding planning program creates the atmosphere and adds your specific perfume and style to your wedding, from start to finish. We create realistic budgets, find the best vendors and fashion a complete design concept that encapsulates your vision of a most memorable wedding day. In white glove personal service, we are attending all vendor meetings and dress fittings, invitation and RSVP management and scheduling spa appointments/other wedding weekend events. In guest welcome services, we are negotiating hotel blocks, assembling welcome bags and providing information on local activities and sights for your guests. Your final wedding planning program fees will be dependent on individual factors such as event complexity, size of the wedding party, number of guests, location (local or out-of-state) and the duration of planning time available from contract signing to actual event. The fees begin at $5100. The enchanted elopement program offers a private, intimate and fabulous event. "What about pictures? What about the cake? What about the dress?" We'll let you in on a little secret. You can have an intimate wedding with all the trappings. We call it an enchanted elopement -- the photographer, the ceremony, the decor and wonderful, fantastic food. Maybe it is just the two of you, or maybe you have just a handful of guests at your side. It could take place at the courthouse or your backyard or at the top of the Eiffel tower. It is a spectacular way to celebrate your union. Our enchanted elopement program begins at $2400.

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.
