We felt very lucky to have Rev. Saundra as our wedding officiant. Not only is she a lovely person to work with, she’s very experienced in all aspects of wedding planning, so she can offer as much, or as little, guidance as you need. We wanted a lighthearted ceremony with unique, personal vows. We’re writers, but we had no experience writing for weddings. Plus, we started less than a month before our date, so timing was tight! From the start, Saundra’s confidence was reassuring. She wrote the first draft of the ceremony and gave us lots of ideas and suggestions. She also gave us manageable deadlines to keep us on track. We went back and forth on versions until the ceremony and vows felt right. Her edits were spot-on. On our wedding day, the ceremony went beautifully. Saundra’s calm, joyous presence commanded the room. We were so impressed with her! And so were our guests. It takes a special sensitivity to come across in a way that’s lighthearted and serious at the same time. Our guests laughed in all the right places and were moved by the love that came through. Saundra is a natural talent. One special moment for us: We asked a family member who’s developmentally disabled to be our ringbearer. The way Saundra guided him was so gentle and sweet we’ll never forget it. We’d give Saundra more than 5 stars if we could, and would recommend her to anyone. You’ll know you’re in good hands with Rev. Saundra.

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 :). 

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.

Clarissa planned my daughter's quinceanera. She is very responsive and pays attention to every little detail. I appreciateed very much her commitment to the success of this memorable event. She has very good relationship with her vendors and staff. I could not have done this event without her. We had a big party and i got a lot of positive comments from our guests from teens to seniors. Thank you Clarissa for making my daughter's party a success.

Danny's floral arrangements are beautiful and thoughtful composites plucked out of fairy tale imagery. I was a bride who hired Danny for my wedding flowers. Originally, I just wanted fresh flowers, some roses, something simple and pretty. However, for the centerpieces, I requested a special set-up with Moroccan lanterns, rustic wood slabs, and flowers spilling out the lanterns flanked by oranges (a Chinese symbol for fortune). In addition, I noted that our wedding colors were pink, blue, cream and gold. Danny was extremely open, flexible, and considerate in listening to my and my husband's vision. In addition, there were a few last minute changes such as: number of reception tables, changing my bouquet to a cascade bouquet, and adding more corsages and boutonnieres to the order. Danny was always very patient and graciously said that he'll do everything he could to make my wedding a dream come true. On the day of my wedding, I walked into my bridal changing room and saw the most gorgeous bouquet I'd ever seen. Blush roses, blue orchis, delicate violet flowers, and eucalyptus coins tumbled majestically in a floral waterfall - wild and natural, yet together making a disciplined formation. Later, I walked down the aisle and saw my beloved standing in front of a gazebo that was swathed in white chiffon and vibrant florals, also Danny's work. An hour and a half later, when we entered the reception room, I was met with the magnificence of our sweetheart table. Being a practical person, I had just discussed with Danny that we'd have a simple sweetheart table with my bridal bouquet as a centerpiece. What met my eyes was a golden tablecloth filled with rosette swirls. Across it were crystal goblets, Moroccan lanterns juxtaposed with oranges and golden frames containing my husband's and my pictures and standing atop tomes and wooden slabs. In that moment, my simple self became suddenly enraptured by a desire for lovely things, and in my transformation, decided that I must preserve my bridal bouquet. Danny indeed works magic.

Working with Christa for our wedding was a wonderful experience. She was attentive, communicative, accommodating & had a lot of creative ideas to help us work within our budget. On our wedding day, she ran the event flawlessly which allowed my wife & I to not have to stress about anything with vendors, the venue, etc. I highly recommend her, she's the best!

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👏

    I highly recommend A Bit of Planning and especially Brittinie for her amazing service, professionalism. The fact that I was able to enjoy the party instead of worrying about the décor, hassling with vendors, and dealing with the guest list/RSVPs, etc. was priceless on its own. The decorations were incredible – EXACTLY what I was looking for when it came to style and quality. I am not even sure how she was able to do it since the party looked more expensive than it actually was, but she was able to keep everything under budget. The event was flawless, and I got so many compliments from my friends and family :) Thank you, Brittinie!

    Shannon was the day of coordinator for my wedding and it was great. We met before hand and laid out how the day would run as well as vendors that needed to be coordinated. The day was stress free. She is so detail oriented and doesn’t miss a detail. Stratford & Pearl is a must have for any event. :)

    Christina and her team at CRC Custom Events were amazing! We would 100% recommend her. We hired her for day-of coordination and venue decor. She did so much for us leading up to the wedding and making sure we were thinking through everything. She is easy to work with and we were able to trust her to use her own judgement with some of the decor arrangements. Seriously, our wedding looked so beautiful; above and beyond our expectations!

    About

    I am very customer oriented and very creative along with possessing skills of mechanical apptitude. I have a tendency to "invent" something, if necessary, in order to complete a task if a ready tool is not available. I have some tools of my own and have no problem using them whenever a project warrants. Sewing is another skill that serves well in many instances. Being creative is a huge help to fill in those areas that need a special touch. Many people don't realize what they already have that may be used in a pinch. Being able to adapt to a changing situation was an absolute necessity as a fire fighter, and fortunately that is another skill I use in various areas of daily living. Things don't always go as planned; and if I didn't learn that on the fireground, the job would be even more dangerous. Success depends on a person's ability to adapt, and I love the challenge. Dad told me when I was young that there are things a girl doesn't do. So I showed him and became a fire fighter! Wow, was that a big surprise! He was proud anyway and learned that my abilities were far more reaching, and I wasn't afraid to try to accomplish things outside the "norm". I don't give up without trying everything I can think of. I believe there are ways to make things fun without compromising the seriousness of a task. Having a sense of humor goes a long way as long as there is a good balance to being serious. I never leave anyone with an "I don't know."

    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.
