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!

Janice is super experienced and has seen everything. Our wedding day went off without a hitch! She kept us organized and offered lots of ideas whenever we needed them. She was a terrific advocate for us with the staff at our venue when we had questions or concerns, and she worked really well with our other vendors (photographers, DJ, etc.). Throughout the planning of our wedding, she was always offering to do more for us. If you want a professional, experienced, and super sweet coordinator/planner, Janice is the way to go!

We hired Westbrook Events to plan our wedding. We were so happy with everything they did and provided for us. We started the process with Denette a year before our wedding date and she walked us through the entire process and helped bring my vision of my wedding day to a reality. We highly recommend using them for your big day! Frank & Crystal

    Samantha was very professional. Arrived on time and went over everything before we got started. I really appreciated that she took the time to ask questions. And wrote our vows to match our personalities. It was nice to have something made just for our special day. I would recommend her to anyone. She will do everything she can to make your special day just as amazing as ours was.

      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.
