Jessica and Dustin are AMAZING, hands down the best wedding planners we could have hired for our wedding and I honestly don’t know what I would have done without them. These two truly, truly love what they do, and the fact that they both went through planning their own wedding together speaks millions to their work chemistry. All of my friends, family, and other vendors who interacted with Jessica and Dustin had the same experience - they are wise, quick on their feet, detail oriented, and kind while still keeping everyone in line when needed. By the end of the night, we felt like Jessica was a part of our family. My biggest regret of the wedding was not hiring Jessica and Dustin earlier on in the planning. We hired 3LB as day of coordinators, but it is sooo worth having Jessica and Dustin around to help make decisions throughout the process. They are SO skilled at what they do, will take on any challenge you throw at them, and from the moment I spoke to Jessica, I knew I could trust her with everything. I am so beyond grateful to have found Jessica and Dustin, and am looking forward to the next family member to get married so I can work with them again!

Ricki did a great job as our very detailed wedding planner! She found us the most perfect and beautiful place for our outdoor rustic style wedding! My Fiancé (now husband) and I were very demanding so it was a relief to have Ricki in our planning process. Ricki had everything all planned and ready to go, down to the last detail. She understood and was considerate of our culture and even spoke Spanish with our guests! She worked with me, every step of the way by sharing exactly my vision for my wedding. She has a no-problem attitude, embracing any last minute changes! I was immediately impressed with her endless energy and generosity with her time. She was always available to me, day or night, taking care of any concerns I had at the moment. Keeping the budget in mind, she found us a great photographer, hairdresser, make up artist, dessert maker, baker, and mariachis at a very reasonable price. On the day of, she assisted with making sure everything was placed precisely as we envisioned in the venue and everything ran smoothly. I would highly recommend Ricki for her most detailed, accurate and attentive service. We could not have done it without her!

Michelle was fantastic as a day of wedding planner. She was attentive, professional and we would have seriously struggled without her. She met with us as a free consultation, helped us organize the event, and kept us on track. 5 stars for sure. Would highly recommend!

Joanne and her team were amazing to work with. They're a newer company and ready to go above and beyond to make your day happen. She was responsive and thorough, which made wedding planning less stressful and fun! She gave my husband and I a lot of options and were able to work with our budget without compromising the things we wanted. She connected me with a local florist and videographer. Their services exceeded my expectations and were great to work with as well. Joanne also arrived early on the day of my wedding to make sure the vendors were on track. It was a pleasure working with her team and I'd highly recommend their services.

Joelle is the best day-of-wedding coordinator you could hire. She was very responsive in texts and emails. She was available to meet in person to go over details or pick up props. She helped create the wedding of my dreams and thanks to her, I didn’t have to worry about anything at my wedding. I am forever grateful for Joelle’s hard work and so glad she contacted me on Thumbtack.

Michelle and Eimee were absolutely wonderful to work with! I was a bride planning my wedding from Maryland. I was really worried about the floral arrangements because I was not in California until a couple of weeks before my wedding. Michelle and Eimee always kept me in the loop and consistently communicated with me via Skype and email. They researched flowers that would complete my vision and fit within my budget. Everything turned out so beautiful! I cannot thank them enough!

Working with Linda was the easiest part of planning my wedding! She is such a great person to hold your hand during wedding planning. She was great at the follow-up and even better at the follow-through. I will definitely be recommending her to EVERYONE and will keep her in my Rolodex for future events I have to put together. I was happy to learn that she doesn't just plan weddings. I love you, Linda!!! Thanks, again!

I was in search for a luxury wedding planner for a private estate for my wedding. I could never the perfect venue space without her help! The private estate that I am going to have my wedding is simply beautiful! I called a lot of local planners and spoke to a few on thumbtack to find the right place, but she was the only one to care genuinely about my needs and concerns and delivered QUICKLY. Now she is my wedding planner. She is very professional and extremely good at follow-through. She has a solid experience and great connections in the industry. I will recommend her to anyone who is planning an event. I will write more about her after my honeymoon! :)

Jessell and Perfectly Events were exactly what we wanted. I had been planning the wedding from the beginning and knew that it would be better to hire a coordinator for the month leading up to the wedding. My wife and I instantly liked Jessell when we met with her as she was punctual and was really on top of her game when it came to answering all our questions. The month of the wedding, she was effectively communicating not only with us but with our vendors, making sure that they were coming and that they were ready to perform. Then on the actual wedding day, she was awesome. During the church ceremony, we had a nightmare of a church coordinator (appointed to us by our church) and Jessell handled her well. She was also really helpful for small things such as helping pin the flowers and finding a replacement ring bearer as some of ours went MIA. For the reception, she really allowed us to enjoy the wedding. We even got to eat the food and cake (which Jessell and her assistant actually delivered to our table!) I can have a type A personality, but thankfully, Jessell was there to make sure the event went smoothly and on-time. I also have to compliment her for the extra steps she took such as in the decorations and food delivery. She really went above and beyond and my wife and I are so happy she was involved in our wedding. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering having a month of coordinator.

Working with Modevents to coordinate our wedding has been an absolute pleasure. Monica, was an absolute hit making sure everything was exactly to my specifications and requests. We exchanged several emails leading up to the big day, and Monica offered great suggestions and recommendations along the way. She made sure we kept everything within budget and my vision remained intact on the big day checking. Her email replies were timely and her onsite demeanor and composure was professional and kept me stress free! I would recommend Modevents to any future brides looking for someone to handle day of needs.

I hired Golden State Events for my wedding, they had a million things thrown at them. There were issues with the band, power for the microphone at the ceremony, hotel dropping the ball on meals for my guests, and I never heard a peep. Everything was taken care of and everyone had such an amazing time. Every detail was thoughtful and beautiful. Really grateful we were able to work with Golden State Events. I would recommend them a million times over! Thank you!!

I recently got engaged in July 2014 and married October 17, 2014 in California. I live in Arizona! Yes, married within 3 months of engagement and lived out of state. I hired Kelly to help with the planning and decorating of my wedding it was by far one of the best decisions I had made!! Not to mention she was worth EVERY dollar!!! I described and showed her pictures of the vision I had and delivered above and beyond what I had even expected. My wedding would not have been as beautiful as it was if it wasn't for her! If you want to hire someone SHE IS your girl! She is professional, reasonably priced, extremely talented, and excellent at what she does!

I was hesitant to get a planner at first because we were working with a very small budget, but Ira was (is) absolutely amazing. She worked within our budget, helped my plans materialize and made my wedding day beyond incredible. She is such a hard worker, so kind, and very knowledgeable for the planning industry. Thank you Ira, you are beautiful, inside and out!!

Rachel is a lifesaver. Hiring her to coordinate our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. We could not have done it without her. She's extremely professional, always responds timely, she knows the business inside and out, she has an endless list of vendors (all of which were also amazing), and on the day of she literally blew our minds with her decorating skills. Not to mention how accommodating she is, making sure it's exactly what you need or want it to be. We would absolutely recommend Rachel to anyone getting married. We would hire her again for another event in a heartbeat. Rachel is seriously amazing. Thank you! Thank you!!

Kris was fabulous! She made my son's Bar Mitzvah a success. She is very detail oriented and has an eye for what is going to pop and impress. Those qualities surely helped to make our baseball themed bar mitzvah a total home run!

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!

Mary Jean's heart, compassion, professionalism and services are simply unrivaled. As a former wedding planner, she was my number 1 go-to officiant.

Loved working with Dan and his team! As a Bride, I was able to relax and enjoy my special day without worrying about all the logistics that come from a Wedding. His team was able to deal with the vendors and I noticed how he was able to problem solve right on the spot. I appreciated the regular check-ins and professionalism. It was such a smooth day!

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.
