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.

Gloria was an amazing planner. She listened to everything we wanted and made sure that our day went as smooth as possible. She was there to direct the wedding party and guests and well as be sure each part of the wedding went as planned. She is also just a joy to work with. One of the sweetest women you can meet. Very personable and makes you feel comfortable while working with her. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a wedding planner! We loved her work!

Rachael and Tim were our wedding planners and they did an amazing job. We held a 4 day event in Eden, Utah. It was Thursday evening thru Sunday morning with 110 guests in attendance. The entire weekend went amazingly smooth and we owe so much of that to Tim & Rachael. They brought a ton of decorations with them, they set up each venue throughout the weekend, took down each venue, organized all of the decorations and decor. They came out and walked the venue with us prior to the event. They helped design the whole theme, the reception, center pieces, table set ups... They helped us find vendors. They clearly have a ton of experience with weddings and thought of things we would have completely missed. I would recommend them to anyone planning a wedding who needs someone in their corner. Thank you so much Rachael and Tim. It was the wedding of our dreams and we never could have done it without you. You're the best!
