Andrea was so easy to work with throughout the planning process even though I only booked her for the day of. She offered help and suggestion beyond what she was required and it was very obvious that she loves what she does. On the day of, I had very little to stress about regarding the logistics of the big day as I knew that Andrea and her team had it handled. She executed the vision I had for my day beautifully and handled all of the details with ease. I would definitely recommend using Andrea for all of your wedding planning and event needs-she does not disappoint!

I booked Annemarie for my wedding planning services and I am so thrilled I did! I knew I needed the help and I could have NEVER have done it without her! She was so organized, insanely helpful to my family and I, fun, and such a pleasure to work with. Besides keeping me on a schedule and making sure I was having fun instead of stressing on what I needed to do next , she would approach me and let me know ‘it was time’. She made all the steps to our wedding flow flawlessly (food service, toast, dance, photos, dessert, bouquet toss). If it wasn’t for her I would have been delegating and stressing my own husband and wedding party to make sure everyone else had fun. Instead I got to actually enjoy everything and have fun myself ! Priceless! She even talked me out of crying as I was about to walk down the aisle, which was a major goal of mine! AMAZING! She listened to my opinions and desires and offered advice when I needed and asked for it. She made sure I ate, which is impossible to do at your wedding. She kept everything like clockwork and with so much care and communication. I am so grateful for this woman! You are in good hands!

From first contact to event's end, a top notch experience. Monique is a consummate professional who paid attention to our "vision" of the kind of event we wanted and gave excellent suggestions for our all vegetarian menu and great advice to help us stay close to our budget but still have the quality event we envisioned. We did a site visit so she could see the event space for planning on her end and she kept in close contact to check in or see if there were questions on our end. On event day, she and her partner set up the food and displays beautifully and everything was yummy and better than fabulous! I highly recommend her and hope I have the opportunity to work with on a future event!

Rinna was sooo amazing! From our initial meeting, until the end of our wedding day, she was there for us. She was present for meetings with vendors and was always in contact with them with questions or reaching out to them about documents that needed to be submitted, etc.. She made sure things were done on time. Rinna's friendly and outgoing personality truly made the wedding planning process fun and enjoyable. She was easy to contact and made countless suggestions that fit our needs. Rinna most definitely goes above and beyond, and put her whole heart into helping with our big day! We are very pleased with her services and grateful for everything she did for us! Thank you Rinna, we appreciate you!

Heart for Hospitality not only beautifully planned, created, set up, coordinated and took away all the stressors of wedding planning, but has now become our family!! My husband and I wanted to create a $100,000 wedding on a $10,000 budget (lol)! Him and I began pricing out every single rental company in San Diego county for our big day and quickly realized there was no way we could have a fabulous wedding within our $10,000 budget. Then shortly after- by the grace of God- Heart for Hospitality came to us!! To this day, even 7 months after our amazing wedding, we all are still in shock at how truly incredible and absolutely gorgeous our wedding turned out!!! There is absolutely no way in a million years we could have ever had our $100,000 dream wedding idea so stretigically well organized, magnificent and romantic within our $10,000 budget without Heart For Hospitality ❤!!!! With open arms and hearts of gold this team of family bends over backwards to truly create and customize your dream wedding -all within your budget!!! From antique style weddings to the stars of Hollywood- Heart For Hospitality WILL blow you away!!! (You can say I told you so 😉) Kelsie and her Heart For Hospitality team own all of their inventory- from barn wood tables, to linens, to chandeliers and florals, etc., they do it ALL!!! And best of all- they set up and style your entire wedding anywhere you wish and when it's all over they break it all down!! Without Kelsie and her team there is NO doubt in our minds that we would have ever had a wedding- let alone a wedding coordinated and styled so beautifully!!! Since our wedding in July of 2016, four of my great friends have used them for their weddings and say the SAME thing- they are the BEST!!!!! Thank you for all you did for us- we love you guys!!!! - ❤ The Rammels

Glennie and her team was Everything I had hoped for and more! They were so helpful throughout the entire process, went above and beyond, and we’re so detail oriented and amazing. I really did not have to plan my wedding because they had it all planned for me. I just had a vision, I told him what I wanted, and they made it happen. I would highly recommend Glennie and her team To everyone I know. My wedding of 450 gas and having it on today’s was so fun and exciting. If I were to have it again in 10 years, I would definitely rebook with her.

Tom was one of the main reasons my wedding was a great success. The venue didn't let us know the top area didn't have speakers so Tom took the initiative to go coordinate everything and make sure the agenda was followed. He also is well prepared and very professional. If you want someone who will be prepared for whatever comes up at your wedding Tom is the man. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a DJ/MC. If I ever need a DJ for another occasion I will definitely be giving Tom a call.

My experience with Moments Remembered Events was nothing short of phenomenal. With top event planner Lykai's expertise, creative eye, and experience my events were made special to say the least. Lykai was at my every call to put my mind at ease when planning not only my wedding but bridal and baby shower! Three very special once in a lifetime milestones. Her professionalism is unmatchable, Lykai makes herself available even in her own personal time and goes the extra ten miles to ensure not only satisfaction but pure gratification. The events she planned were my firsts so she listened and led me in the right direction to make it my own. With her knowledge of outside vendors she was able to make everything come to life on time and budget. Hey style and creativity bring your dreams to life, whether contemporary or timeless classic. I will use Moments Remembered Events for all of my future sentiments.

Michele was an amazing wedding planner. In addition to being very detailed oriented, she was very communicative, accommodating, and understanding. She knew when to handle the details on our behalf, and when to pull us in for our input. She came with great referrals for all of the other parties needed to throw a wedding ceremony. Planning for a wedding is always a bit stressful, but on the day-of, I was worry-free about the ceremony and reception -- it all went off without a single hitch.

My bestfriend lives in Texas and I live in LA and she needed me to help plan her wedding. When I brought in Alexis, everything went so much smoother and the stress was taken away from me! Well organized, sweet, ON TIME... so many great words come to mind to describe this service. She even brought complementary water to the outside wedding, it was great.

    Krista did my wedding invitations and my wedding favor tags. I was blown away! Every aspect of planning my wedding was becoming more and more stressful, and the first fun thing I did for my wedding was to work with Krista on making a design for my invitations. I did not have a clear vision of what I wanted and Krista helped me to make decisions through small steps. It was overwhelming looking online at all sorts of different invitations, but Krista asked me simple questions that helped me to weed out what I didn’t want and discover what I did want. I ended up with an overall product that really gave guests a glimpse into what the wedding would be like. I had so many compliments on my invitations, and they were one of a kind. Krista was always quick to respond to me, met all of her deadlines, and never even batted an eye when I asked for MULTIPLE revisions. Her attention to detail is amazing, and there is nothing I would change about my final product. I had no idea that I could get custom invitations at a reasonable price. Only a few weeks before my wedding I asked if Krista could help me with my favor tags since I was running out of time to do them myself. Krista came up with an amazing design that matched our invitations and had them to me in record time. Working with Krista on the invitations and favor tags was probably the smoothest part of planning my wedding. With Babies on the brain I know I will be in touch soon to help with baby announcements and kid birthday parties. I am a customer for life. Thank you Krista!!!

      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.
