I couldn’t be more pleased to provide this review for Saundra, as she truly was amazing to work with for my wedding. I hired Saundra as a day-of coordinator, which includes a few meetings leading up to the event. (We met by phone, as I was planning my wedding from across the country.) Saundra helped me to keep all the details in line as we approached the wedding, and communicated efficiently through email and phone calls to ensure she had all the information she needed to keep the day running smoothly, including copies of contracts and a timeline for the day’s events. A few family members had included some things in their speeches that I had asked them to omit, but because Saundra asked for speeches to be sent in advance, she was able to review them and tactfully guide the speakers toward an acceptable outcome. She listened closely to our desires, and really kept the wedding focused on the things we wanted. My wedding was held at a private (and beautiful!) home, and on the day, I’ve since learned that there were a few glitches, including people moving things from our staging area to other places in the home, causing Saundra additional work. The thing that is most impressive to me about that added stress was that I had no idea it was happening. Saundra stayed cool and collected, and handled each situation on her own, which allowed my husband and me to enjoy ourselves, spend time with our guests, and focus on eachother. Leading up to the wedding, I told my fiancé multiple times that hiring Saundra was the best wedding decision I could have made. After all is said and done, I’m certain our day wouldn’t have been the same without her. She worked hard, and all we had to do was have fun! All the details were in place, and I had no worry because I knew she was taking care of everything. Thank you again, Saundra, for being so supportive and helping to create a beautiful day for my husband and me, and all of our guests!

I was just recently involved in a wedding where I was responsible for finding a reliable bartender. I was stressed, worried and nervous that I wouldn't find a proper fit...and then I came across Michael. I had a good vibe from the get-go and I was so incredibly pleased with his knock-out performance!!! Michael is amazing, I sincerely cannot say enough nice things about him. Prompt, efficient, humorous, diligent and kind are all easy attributes to describe Michael, but this man goes above and beyond. Michael has an incredible work ethic, he aided in set up/tear down and EVERYTHING in between. He is courteous even if others are not, and I found him to be extremely professional. He has a great way about him and really relates to all kinds of folks which is so wonderful. Michael truly delivered 100% and he made the night memorable. This guy is a work horse, and his goal is to make things run smoothly. If you need someone who is a true professional, here is your man! I would hire him for any and every single upcoming event, you will not be disappointed!!

We could not have lived through our wedding day without Tiffany! She took care of so many details and helped us beforehand with being super organized and ready for each part of the big day. She is extremely professional and truly made our day run smoothly so that we could enjoy the fun. Thank you so much!

Alisa was hired to cater our wedding of 35 guests at a private residence. She went above and beyond call of duty with cocktails, appetizers, the dinner, and setting up, breaking down the event. She arrived early to set up for both the ceremony and the dinner, and provided the cocktails and beer which received reave reviews from the guests. For the appetizers, she provided polenta bites and bruschetta in keeping with our Italian menu and both were really tasty. The dinner menu consisted of a caesar salad with grilled salmon, tomato bisque, and a cappellacci di zucca; all were truly delicious. She cleaned up the same night, making it easy for us to enjoy the kitchen the next morning for breakfast. If I were to host another event, I would hire Alisa in a heartbeat.

Elizabeth was amazing, my husband and I couldn't have asked for a more professional, poised, and organized Day of Wedding Coordinator. We are truly able to enjoy our special day as Elizabeth took care of everything behind scenes. There just aren't enough words to describe how grateful and how blessed we were to have her support and expertise throughout the wedding planning process and all the way through the wedding day. Her attention to detail, organization skills, foresight, timeliness, transparency, calmness, and genuine care positively impacted how we experienced our "special day". Thank you for everything Elizabeth!

I want to give these guys a million stars. They catered our wedding back in August and they were the best vendor team anyone could have ever asked for. They were SO fun to work with throughout the whole process and made everything so easy and stress free. I cannot imagine working with anyone else. Everyone was raving about the food and the best cupcakes and cake they had EVER had (honestly we weren't even going to have a cake at all until we tasted there's). Thank you Nick and the whole Famous Creations team for making our wedding the best day of our lives and making the wedding planning fun!!

Actually I didn't meet the LadyMarry coordinator and florist, until the rehearsal day, because I was planning my wedding remotely in New York. They are very responsive and patient to my endless questions, and did a great job about organizing the rehearsal and communicating with the other vendors. I always saw Melissa and Donna running around. Hiring you was the best decision I made for my wedding. Thank you!

When we met Khadija we were half way through the wedding planning, and we knew what we wanted in our party but we still needed plenty of guidance...Khadija and James provided that and then some! We found Limelight Productions to be all we could have hoped for and more. Not only is their team very organized and knowledgeable but they helped us to think of things we never would have otherwise considered and they truly went above and beyond. We never had one e-mail, text or call not promptly responded to and at the right times they even gave us some needed pushes on planning and execution as our big day drew nearer. The week of the wedding arrived and Khadija and James (and Ayesha for the bouquet production) showed why they deserve nothing less than 5 stars on their reviews. They were fantastic and very professional, and our party was amazing because they were an amazing team handling things for and with us. Our thank you very much to them, and best recommendations. There is no way we could have had our wedding without them!

We were extremely happy with Taneva Events. We wanted a simple but elegant wedding in Hawaii and Velina at Taneva Events provided that and more for us. She worked with us on everything from the smallest detail on the dinner napkins to working with vendors on logistical details, setup on the day of the wedding and ensuring our day was perfect. We did not have a clear idea of what we wanted to do for our wedding besides the fact that we wanted to keep it simple and take advantage of the natural beauty of the setting. Velina was really helpful from the start, brainstorming ideas with us, and making suggestions for the decor that we would have never thought of on our won. We did not want traditional flower centerpieces, and Velina was able to accommodate us by creating beautiful pineapple centerpieces, and tied them all together with the runner, candles, handmade napkins, and pedestals that she placed the pineapples on. Everybody complemented the decor and the bridal bouquet that she created from traditional Hawaiian flowers. We could not have had such a beautiful and smooth day without Velina's help. Planning for a wedding is always stressful, but Velina eased a lot of our stress and was always a pleasure to work with.

Robyn made my bridal shower a total surprise! I was not expecting it at all. It was based on me, as the theme was what I love best, horses. I could tell she had spent so much time researching to find decorations and party favors that would make my bridal shower so special. She also helped plan my backyard wedding. I'm not a very good party planner myself so had no idea where to start. When I hired her, she stepped right in and took the control I was looking for. I could relax and have a great time at my wedding knowing every little detail was being watched and taken care of by Robin.

Heidi and Ashton were the perfect day-of wedding coordinators. When we arrived at the site on our wedding day, everything was beautifully set up as if by magic. Gracefully and unobtrusively, they made everything happen. They arranged flowers, set up the wedding altar, wrangled vendors, and guided guests through the day’s various phases (ceremony, reception, toasts). They even served us cake and champagne. Our guests remarked on how “effortless” the wedding seemed; this is largely due to Birminkeley’s hard work! Birminkeley also helped plan our wedding. They visited the venue with us and talked us through everything from where to seat the guests to how many tablecloths to order. Later, they helped us search for wedding vendors. Despite our tight timeline (~2 months), they found us a wonderful photographer, rental company, and makeup artist. They were persistent and tenacious in making sure the vendors would adhere to our venue’s strict requirements. In addition to being very capable, flexible, and affordable, Heidi and Ashton are very pleasant to work with. Their calmness and perseverance helped us get through a very stressful time!

If I could leave more stars for CRC Custom Events I would! Christina was absolutely amazing and took all of the stress away from wedding planning so that I could relax throughout the whole process and just enjoy the day. She coordinated with our vendors, made sure our payments were made on time, handpicked our flowers and decorations, created a detailed itinerary, set up and cleaned up our venue, and most importantly made my Pinterest board come to life! Her attention to detail is what impressed me the most. From making sure that we had appetizers on our table so that we didn’t forget to eat, to sending our guests home with flowers at the end of the night, it was the small things that made our wedding so special. She was with us throughout the entire process, from the first consultation to the big day, she communicated with us the entire time and took all of the stress off my plate. I can’t thank her and her team enough. Our DJ mentioned at the end of our reception that he had never seen a wedding that actually stuck to their itinerary and it was all thanks to CRC! I’m truly grateful for their hard work and for making my wedding absolutely perfect.

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. :)

My husband and I met Kelsey two years ago and developed a friendship since day one. We were shopping for a wedding venue in the bay area and had such bad luck with venues. They were either out of our budget, already booked or wedding coordinators would rush you out the door. We came across Crown Plaza in Palo Alto and met Kelsey there! She was very responsive and very informative with everything you needed to know about wedding planning. She answered all of our questions without us even asking. It's like she read our minds. She makes you feel very important, very caring about your needs, takes the time to spend time with you and does not rush you out the door. She was our day of wedding coordinator too and our wedding ran very smooth. Without her help, we would honestly be very lost leading up to our wedding and the day of. We are so glad we've met Kelsey. Since our wedding, we've remained good friends.

Maria was extremely helpful to our family. We had to plan a quinceanera and we had a tight budget and a 2 month time frame to make it happen. We had to plan everything from the venue selection, to the dance and surprise dance, to the catering, invites, centerpieces, linens, DJ, cake, party favors, and anything else that you can think of. Like I said we had a tight budget and about 100 guest. With her skillset and network of vendors we were able to have to have a great and successful quinceanera. The event was beautiful everything was perfect and way more than what we expected. We really loved the experience of working with Maria and her team and really loved the help that we had with the planning.

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.
