We had a great experience with Mrs. Brown. My wife and I were pleased with her performance in planning our wedding and coordinating everything on the day of. She worked hard to make everything we wanted happen within our strict budget.

Marie Stark was an absolute life saver at my wedding. To put things bluntly, I had a very difficult wedding party to work with and she was nothing but patient with them. Not only that, but she managed to turn my wedding dream into a reality. The entire process of working with Marie was incredibly calming which was refreshing considering how stressful wedding planning can be. I could not be happier with Marie as my wedding coordinator. She managed everything that I couldn’t on my wedding day and I am truly grateful for all of her efforts. I highly recommend her!

We are so glad to have had Jodi as our wedding officiant. She arrived on time and was so patient while we waited for some important wedding guests to arrive. She delivered such a beautiful ceremony. We had guests ask us if she was a friend of the family because she seemed so emotionally connected to the event. We know we made the right choice!

Amazing service and assistance! They provided several quotes, options, and ideas even. They were able to deliver and pick up the wine glasses, flutes, chairs, and linens. They were kind, on time, and personable. Great service. I would and have already recommended them to others. They seriously made my wedding day stress-free.

Spoke with Shannon, she is so compassionate about making the wedding day perfect. She asked questions and shows very much that she would be there for me with anything I need. I can’t wait to work with her on my wedding day! I booked with her quickly because she is a jewel I couldn’t let get away! I’ll send another review after wedding ❤️ Chrystal

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!

Ishita was wonderful with all the services she provided. She was always on top of all the different aspects we needed to have ready for our special event. On top of that, she followed up multiple times well in advance to make sure we were comfortable with our choices and always did her best to show us all the options that existed, whether it was something as small as the different flower arrangements to making sure we had a full understanding of the different decorators that were in the market and how they apply to our tastes. Overall, the services offered were well worth it and we are planning on having her coordinate our wedding next year! We would certainly recommend Ishita as your event planner! - Zinal

At first I didn't think I needed a wedding planner, but when I hired Ester (Sister), I found out how many things where missing in my plans. I couldn't have done it without her. Everything went great, from start, to finish. I thank her for making my wedding the best experience ever. Five Stars all the way!!

Karen is amazing! Words can't adequately express my appreciation of this wonderful lady. She did so much to make our event a success and to relieve the stress related to hosting a wedding. We hired Karen to be our "coordinator for the day" for our daughter's wedding. Even though the wedding was small (about 60 guests) and in our home, we wanted someone to help so that WE could be guests ourselves and enjoy the wedding. I did quite a bit of research before choosing and I'm so glad that we chose Karen. She has an infectious smile that puts you at ease immediately. She is also extremely professional and knowledgeable. She asked a lot of questions so that she would have a better idea of what we were envisioning. She had great practical ideas that helped with the flow of the event. We felt like we were in really good hands. When Karen arrived on the day of the wedding, she absolutely blew me away! I gave her a quick tour of everything that was happening and she just took it from there. It was like she was family and had been there a million times. She stayed two steps ahead all night and really made the evening stress free. She has a very unique quality in that she can take charge and provide direction in the nicest most nonabrasive way. When she lets guests know that it's time to move out to the patio for cocktails, or that we're ready for a toast, grand entrance, cake cutting etc. everyone listens and no one feels like they are being "bossed around". When guests left, she did so much to help wrap things up that I actually had to tell her to stop. She's so thoughtful. She pays attention to the smallest details and she really listens. I know Karen has done hundreds of events from large and elaborate to small and intimate. No matter what kind of event your planning, Karen will make it better and she will make your life easier! Thank you Karen for allowing us to relax and truly enjoy Maegan and Danny's wedding! Warm regards, Shelly and Bob

Selina made our wedding everything we dreamed of and then some. It was ABOVE our expectations and totally BEYOND perfect~! From start to finish she made planning my wedding a breeze (I run a company, so I didn't have much time to plan my own). Thank you Selina for such a special day.

I can't speak highly enough of Valentina! She was our wedding day coordinator and I could not have asked for more. Everything went so perfect and so smooth. From the moment I met her, I knew she is someone who strives to perfection. I am myself very detailed oriented and I recognized alike-souls :). She went above and beyond to make sure everything would go smooth, she is very detailed oriented, very fast, and on top of everything. She is also very easy to get along with, flexible, kind, great personality. Being new in town, and not having a huge support system here, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed about the whole wedding planning, and having her onboard was magical, she was an angel! Can't speak enough of her, thank you Valentina!!

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.

Vanessa was an absolute pleasure to work with! I hired her to help me coordinator everything leading up to our wedding day. Her attention to detail was phenomenal and served as a wonderful second pair of eyes in reading over all the contracts from vendors! I couldn't believe how many details and questions there was but she was there to answer and ask all of them. It was really great that once the wedding date was approaching she started answering emails from my vendors because she already had the answers which saved us a great time of time! She really knew her way about event planning and it was so comfortable for me to talk to her about changes or thoughts and she is very flexible with direction if you change your mind. Vanessa responds when she sees your email and will let you know if she saw your email but didn't have time to answer. I loved how well she communicated with me. She texts right away and she is very thorough with her email responses. She is adaptable in learning how to efficiently use technology to her advantage. I opted to use GoogleDrive to share documents back and forth. Until she met me, she didn't know how to use and now she is an expert! I cannot imagine not having this wedding without all of Vanessa's hard work! She deserves all the credit.

A&D was so great! We hired her for a Thumbtack event for our LA pros. We didn't really have a vision for what we wanted, and were planning the event from another state. She went and walked through the space and made some great recommendations for what would look good. It looked so great! And she was really patient with us as we were planning this even somewhat last minute. Would totally hire her again! Thank you!

I hired Candace as the coordinator for my wedding. She went above and beyond my expectations. I felt like so many worries I had melted away once I began working with her. She is very dedicated to providing the best experience for her clients and she looks at every detail... even all those details that only an experienced event professional would even think of. I would not hesitate to hire her for another event I have and would recommend her to anyone looking for someone who is reliable, organized and proactive in planning their event. She is beyond outstanding!

    Andrea made our wedding the perfect day! From beginning to end, she took care of each and every detail. Most importantly, when we were stressed or had something unexpected “pop up” at the most inopportune time, she was there to take care of it quickly and effectively. It was a pleasure working with her!

    Shelby is absolutely incredible and I can’t imagine how my wedding day would have gone if it weren’t for her! From the weeks leading up to the wedding, to the actual day, she was always so communicative, receptive to my ideas, and just so reliable! My wedding didn’t start until 4pm and she was at the venue at 7am!!! Setting everything up and making sure everyone was on the same page for what needed to be done. Like every wedding day, there were random things that came up but she immediately stepped in and just made the entire day run so smoothly. I truly was stress-free and was able to enjoy my day because of all the work, effort, and love she put in to making my wedding special. I still feel so blessed by her help. Shelby is an amazing problem solver, and will go above and beyond to make sure you’re worry-free on your special day! She even went to the dry cleaners for my husband’s suit and got us coffee! Something she offered to do all on her own- I didn’t even ask!! She is such a professional and reliable person, you can tell she absolutely loves what she does!

    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.
