I hired the K. Simone Group to staff my birthday party. Her team was highly professional and responsive to all my guests' needs throughout the night. The bartenders offered great, quick drinks and top-notch customer service, ensuring that party goers were having an awesome time. Kea and her team went above and beyond contracted duties, helping out wherever they could when it came to finishing off decorations or cutting and serving cake. I was pretty carefree the night of my party, and it was all thanks to the great event planning services by the K. Simone Group! I will definitely use them again and will refer them in the future.

Ricki throws the greatest parties! Her events leave no detail untouched. Everything is perfect. And the best part is how much money she saves. Ricki and Special Event Genie have been doing events for my business group Wildfire Networking for several years now. We have annual holiday parties with sit down dinners and dancing to a DJ. Always gorgeous decorations, great food, good drinks, and at least 100 people. Ricki also arranges quarterly cocktail parties we call "mixers" and scores some great locations around West Los Angeles for us. I am looking forward to having her help with my next big birthday party! Call Special Event Genie if you want your wishes granted perfectly!

Michelle was AMAZING and so easy to work with. She communicated with us throughout our entire event planning process. She was beyond patient, and really came through the day of when our caterer and food truck had forgotten some key items - and she drove out to pick them up! We couldn't have asked for a better event coordinator and highly recommend!

Let me start by saying, most men think that they have it all figured out when it comes to women and dating. I know! I am one of those men. As a hopeless romantic myself, I never thought that I would benefit from a marriage proposal, date, and event planning company. I mean, what can they possibly show me that I haven't already thought of myself; little did I know I was in for a surprise. The ladies at OLF took care of everything for me. I mean the dinner location they chose was fantastic, they even gave me pointers on what wine to order with our steak, which was a big plus for me because it impressed my girlfriend that I was knowledgeable about a variety of wines. Prior to dinner they suggested that I take her on a short stroll where we ended up by a wall with LOVE written all over it, she was taking back by that and thought the wall was adorable. More brownie points for me. Thanks OLF. Aaaaaaaand to top it off, they had disguised photographer follow us throughout our date that snapped so many random pictures of us while we were out. I can honestly say that I was impressed with their planning and so was my girlfriend. I would recommend this company to men and women with experience on all dating levels, if they can blow my mind with their planning, imagine what they can do for YOU!

This was the first time I worked Mari at 8 D.A.Y.S EVENTS and I noticed that she was very professional, thorough, and on top of every detail. She coordinated everything in terms of production - lighting, sound, DJ, and catering for the party. The presentation of the food was phenomenal and tasty. I was HIGHLY impressed with the additional furniture and lighting she brought in that turned the house into an upscale hot spot! Her level of expertise in planning the whole event was phenomenal. I feel she went above and beyond her inner call of event planning!

E&M Designs run an event planning service and I hired them to provide the flowers and cake at my wedding. Working with them was very easy, they were available via text, phone and email and responses were prompt. I chose them because I was on a very tight budget and they gave me a significantly lower quote than any other vendors I contacted - for the level of service they provide I thought the price exceptionally reasonable! The flowers were delivered in great condition and looked exactly as discussed; however the highlight was the cake. Eimee made me a 3 tier lemon wedding cake that was both beautiful and delicious! All of my guests said it was the best cake they've ever had - moist, delicious, and with amazing frosting!

The Perfectly Event Planning Team was wonderful - I'm a highly organized woman, and didn't think I would need any help for the day of my wedding. However, Jessell offered her services and I'm so happy we hired her. I was able to enjoy our wedding and the entire day and just let Jessell worry about the nitty gritty and the payments and the time-line and getting my husband to where he needed to be! We couldn't have done it without her and don't know that we would have wanted to! I highly recommend Perfectly Event Planning to anyone who needs a little order to their event.

Iveta is incredibly professional and talented and was able to work with our budget. We had a chat on the phone about 2 months out from our wedding, and a brief meeting about 2 weeks out. I told her what I wanted, what my budget was, and showed her some pictures I had saved for inspiration. She completely exceeded expectations and brought our celebration to the next level. It was also very hot on our wedding day and she made sure to replace or fix any flowers that wilted in the heat. I would work with her again, in a heartbeat! Thank you for making our special day beautiful :)

We had a college graduation party in June, 2018 for about 30 people and used Big Daddy's catering. It was so incredibly good!!!! We had a full taco bat that had something delish for everyone. Our guests continued to ask "who did the food because it was awesome!" They delivered on everything they said they would do and we couldn't have been happier with both the food and the friendly service. If you are having a party or other event, please use Big Daddy's......you won't be disappointed!!

After months of looking for someone who could help my company put together one of our annual corporate events, we found Ms. Pratt at Pat Thomas Design. Working with her was so great. We were able to completely delegate all aspects of our event to her. She was impressively responsive and professional in all ways. She was able to deliver everything with enough time. She did not let any details go unseen. Our guests and company were very impressed by the organization and logistics behind our event. Finally, the value of her services was nothing compared to all the work and dedication Danielle Pratt put into it. 10/10 would recommend getting in touch with her.

Iris did so much for us to make this our best holiday event to date. It was a breeze on my part, she did all of the planning, finding the DJ and venue. We worked together on menu items, and were able to taste test in advance. The salmon was amazing, as was the tri-tip. Iris is also a truly sweet person, and I enjoyed planning this event with her very much. She was very accommodating, and delivered as promised. Thank you! I would highly recommend her for your event planning.

Wow! I had a tall order: plan and execute a corporate team building event in three days. Rachel made it happen, and made it successful and fun. From the get go, Rachel's positivity and creativity set the tone for success. She came in saying "We can...and here's how...and here's what will make it better." She was professional and flexible. She listened well and brought in ideas based on what we really wanted. Day of the event, everything was smooth. All the things that needed to happen just happened. Our event was fun and successful and exactly what we envisioned. I highly recommend Rachel and Chain of Events!

I hired CJ or DJ Ceeej for my birthday party after hearing him at another friend’s party. I had to ask her for his contact and book him for my own event. He was very communicative before the event. Showed up on time. Had all the songs we were looking for and played an amazing set filled with the newest and popular songs to nostalgic throwbacks that many of our attendees haven’t heard in a while. He really took us on a journey through his music that I really wish we could relive. Luckily I plan on hiring him for my party next year! I highly recommend hiring him! He won’t let you down and his prices are pretty good for his talent. Book him today! :)

Grace Celebrations has now assisted me with quite a few events and they have far exceeded my expectations. There is so much dedication and care that goes into planning the event and making sure it is carried though with every detail perfected. They have all been work events that my employees have been amazed. The Halloween party was creative with the pumpkin carving contest among the various departments and then the DJ playing music for the holiday such as monster mash and thriller. We then had a holiday party at the bowling alley and this also included dancing as well as bowling. It was a nice friendly competition. We had a New Years Party in the warehouse which did not even feel like a work environment. The atmosphere was careful and very artistically done with linen table cloths and fancy centerpieces. We rolled the utensils in a cloth napkin and very elegant. I would definitely recommend Grace Celebrations for any event whether it was a work environment or personal.

We liked Kelly so much for our wedding, we hired her for all of our other events too! She handled the whole weekend, 3 different events, with calm professionalism, style, poise, and good humor. By the end she felt like one of the family, and our guests hugged her goodbye. We will be recommending her to everyone for any event and we will definitely be engaging her again!

Carlos provided us with valet and shuttle service for my son's wedding last weekend. The wedding location was up an awful drive, windy and dirt road, the shuttle was quite a distance and on top of it, it rained. The road was treacherous. The drivers were wonderful. They drove slowly and safely. They made everyone feel absolutely safe in spite of the hair raising drive. They checked out locations prior to the event beforehand so they knew where they were going. Carlos dealt calmly with me changing my mind several times and always returned calls and texts promptly. They are reasonably priced as well. I would strongly recommend using them.

Chelsea took initiative and would immediately start coordinating details on an event timeline, booking staff, and basically taking on responsibilities before asked. She is a self-starter. It was a pleasant surprise and very much needed. During our several months working together, I knew I could count on Chelsea. She was always punctual, completely reliable and she went above and beyond the call of duty.. She took the job seriously and knew that making sure everything was in order, staff was hired and in place, was essential to the success of our events. Chelsea communicates clearly, quickly and responsibly. It was a pleasure to work with her because she takes pride in all that she does. I recommend Chelsea wholeheartedly. Anyone fortunate enough to hire her will soon discover that she is a gem with a great attitude, excellent work ethic, and she takes her responsibilities and those of the whole team, very seriously.

Lisa designed and coordinated my baby shower last May and to say that it exceeded expectations does not even begin to cover it. Working with her was an absolute pleasure. I told her my idea was to have an English tea party and she took it from there. The thoughtfully created details are what really touched me and made it a perfect day. Lisa will think of everything and ensure that your event is beautifully curated and beyond memorable. I highly recommend using A Perfect Day for your 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.
