Words can't express our gratitude for Stephanie and her entire staff. Without Stephanie there would have been no wedding (lol) or at least it felt that way. The entire planning process from beginning to end was so smooth. Stephanie is EXTREMELY ORGANIZED and had every little detail covered. She was very professional and easily accommodated all of our special request. Her attention to detail is impeccable and took great concern with following through each one. She listened to us and made our vision come to life. Stephanie was patient and accommodating through all the hiccups along the way and we are eternally grateful to her. The night before the wedding July 2, 2016 one of our vendors unfortunately did not come through as expected but Stephanie and her team were able to still pull it through. That night Around 11:30 pm I realized that I had forgotten to give Stephanie some items for our early wedding that following morning. She was already on her way to venue sorting out the details and resolving the mishap of our vendors but yet she turned around ,came to my house and picked the items up from me. I was already impressed by Stephanie thus far but when she did that it solidified that we picked the right wedding planner. She is thoughtful of her clients and she went the extra mile to check up on us not because we hired her but it was her genuine acts of kindness and thoughtfulness. We felt so confident we made the right choice of picking Mariage Blanc to partake in our wedding festivities. Stephanie in the process of helping us plan our wedding became more like family to us. For example after our meeting was clearly done she would stay late into the night helping us sort out details going over issues and call almost everyday to find out how we were personally doing and how we were preparing for the big day. She would offer words of comfort to both Sam and I but in particular to me as the nervous bride. Her hard work ethnic is one that surpasses what we and our family have seen. If we could get married all over again without a doubt we would share that day again and the wedding prep process with the entire Mariage Blanc Designs.Thank you and may God continue to bless you all. Can't wait to do the 5 year vow renewals!!! Love Erica and Sam

I cannot say enough great things about Ani! She was the glue that held the morning of my wedding together and my only regret was not having her throughout the duration of my wedding day. Our venue provided a coordinator, but she didn't touch Ani's level. Ani is prompt, professional, organized and so sweet! She is everything you could ask for in wedding planner/coordinator. She made me feel so comfortable and confident everything was going to plan. I, myself am very type A and she could tell I was very concerned about the timeline. She was there every step of the way telling me how much time we had left or that we were "doing good on time". Exactly what I needed to hear. In addition, she kept my now husband and his groomsmen in the loop at a separate location and kept us all fed and hydrated. She was the best friend I'd met twice, but couldn't have done without on my big day. Thank you Ani!

Novaoriginal Events was the event designer for my wedding last year. I had seen pictures of her work and decided to trust her with the most important day of my life. From the décor to the flowers to the lighting to the cake, even the dinner menus, it was more than I could have even imagined. She planned every detail which took alot of stress off me! She took my vision and turned it into such a flawless luxury event my family is still raving about it. She was very warm and professional and responsive to what I wanted. So of course I turned to her again to design my baby shower this past July. Again it was a gorgeous 5 star event beyond my expectations. I would recommend her for any event. See my pics below! I'm still in awe.

I was a former patron of the original Cornbread & Caviar restaurant. The Aviance was outstanding & the food was even better. It sincerely broke my heart when they shut their doors. However my disappointed was short lived when I found out they had formed a catering service. Chef Carlton and his staff have since catered my sister pre wedding party to high aclaim. Since then his oxtails have been a staple at my family's thanksgiving celebrations. I was plesently surprised with his lasagna dish just this past Christmas. They even bake! Most important is their consistency. I've never had a bad experience. A very good and diverse menu. 5 star rating!

Working with Avision Events and their head coordinator was a pleasure, I had the most overwhelming task at hand and it could not have gone more smoothly and well. I was blown away at the personal detail Avision's staff put into creating my perfect day. They went above and beyond the cost of this event by helping my family members feel comfortable, create a beautiful production, and serving quality food event though I had such a large wedding. I look forward to contacting Avision for my future events to come!!! A lifetime of thanks to my coordinator Paula!!

SO, I always dreamed of having my wedding at the Chateau Briand in long island and when i called they gave me this ridiculous price for the day. I decided to get an wedding planner because i assume they know how to talk to this venue places. I was reccommended by my friend who worked with k.f.events. When we first started speaking and meeting she gave me a few different options of venue, but my heart was set on the Chateau. I dont how she did it but they was able to give me a better price and we immediately booked the venue. my wedding was amazing. she had send me this link to write a review and with honor ill write a review.

Trina was phenomenal! My wife and I gave her some ideas for our wedding, and she brought it all to fruition. Trina's visions are outstanding but more importantly, she is able to execute on everything she envisions. One can simply tell that she is not only passionate about delivering an outstanding product to a given customer but also, that she loves people. My wife and I wanted someone that thought of our wedding day as their day too. We wanted someone that loved us and wanted the best for us. And Trina exemplified it all! I would recommend her for all events.

After many disappointing conversations with "would be" event planners and listening to them talk AT me rather than to ME... I came across SVN Events and gave them a call. It quickly became evident; after speaking with Steve, that I needed to search no further and I enlisted his services to help make my once childhood dream a reality. Working with Steve from SVN events was an extreme pleasure. He was super attentive to detail; big and small, refreshingly creative as well as resourceful, and extremely professional and responsive. I reached out to SVN Events to help oversee and coordinate my summer wedding...which entailed 300+ attendees, many years of visions and very vocal family members that; at times, were opinionated and aggressive. This proved to be no match for Steve and he was able to work with and relate to them all. He was dedicated to the process and delivered on all of the visions that I had always dreamed of. He took the time to explore and discuss all of my immediate needs and concerns and even gave me more attention than I think I deserved. Any "obstacle" or concerns I may have had at any point throughout the wedding planning was immediatly addressed and resolved by his professionalism and expertise. I dont think I realized just how much work Steve really did until I saw evidence in the photo and video footage and received countless compliments after the event from attendees. SVN events delivered above and beyond anything I had envisioned for my special day and without him I am certain the day would not have been as incredible as it truly was. Magical doesnt even begin to do it justice and two years later it is still being remarked about as the best wedding people have ever been to. I attribute much of that to Steve and SVN Events and am fortunate to have found them.

Jeanenne La Bella from La Bella Planners was the reason my wedding turned out exactly how I envisioned it. She and her staff were very creative and on point with developing the itinerary, decor, and the complete layout of all my wedding events (bridal shower, engagement party, wedding, bachelorette party). They were very fast and responsive when it came to making last minute decisions and I loved all the vendors that she works closely with. Overall I was 100% happy with her services and will be using her again in the future to plan my 30th Birthday party and baby shower. Thanks again La Bella Planners for making my wedding day so special couldn't have done it with out you !

    Brittany was fantastic at organizing and planning my wedding. I was naturally a worried bride about everything being perfect and Brittany was always great at being super responsive to my concerns and helpful with suggestions. The day of the wedding went so smooth she created a very detailed timeline of the event managed all the vendors and helped me with just about anything I needed. She was also super flexible and willing to work with last minute changes. I could not have imagined my wedding without having Brittany by my side. Because of her my husband and I were able to have the best time at our own wedding and got to spend time with our family and friends rather than managing all the little things. I highly recommend hiring Brittany for your big day.

      My wife and I loved working with Irene & Joyce. We worked with them on the month-of planning, and they handled all of the vendor relations and scheduling for day-of. Furthermore, Joyce created escort cards and table numbers -- she painted those herself! At every step in the wedding planning process, They were incredibly helpful and I cannot say how we would've done it without both of them. On the day of our wedding, they were communicative, always there to handle any situations that arose and they did a wonderful job anticipating everything we needed. She even set up all the centerpieces and placed custom favors for each guest before the reception started. It was such a comfort to know we had them there to make sure everything went off without a problem (and it did!). Most of all, we truly loved and appreciated their thoughtfulness. They were genuinely happy and excited for our wedding. It was quality that showed through in all of their work. My wife and I cannot recommend them highly enough. I only wish we could work together on other events because we enjoyed it so much!

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
