We worked with Katherine Fonsella from DeCicco events and cuisine and she was WONDERFUL. We were planning a pre-wedding dinner for about 100 people in the Tarrytown area, but we live in Northern California. We did not know any venues or caterers or suppliers. Katherine helped us find a great, unusual loft venue, arranged all the decor, tables, lighting, and set up the catering from DeCiccos. The staff were excellent, the food was very good, everything went off perfectly. We are so appreciative of all that Katherine did to make our event wonderful!

I was so fortunate to have the help and expertise of Tyler and the whole HighLife crew when planning my birthday party this year. Tyler was so understanding and made sure I got everything I wanted. He picked out an amazing venue, concocted an original and delicious menu as well as specialty cocktails to fit the theme, he even booked an one of my favorite bands and a DJ to keep the party going all night. The party was everything I wanted and HighLife made it so easy and affordable. And as an added bonus the staff working my party were not hard on the eyes! I highly recommend HighLife for any occasion, they go above and beyond to make sure any event is perfect and runs smoothly. I will definitely be using them more in the future.

We can't say enough great things about Stephanie. She was a true life saver from day one. Stephanie was very accessible and responded with lightening speed to emails/calls/texts at all different hours. She was always professional and friendly and gave great advice. Stephanie definitely has an eye for style and worked great with all of our wedding vendors. My wedding planning experience became stress-free once Stephanie came on board. I recommend her to any bride-to-be or anyone planning an event. We look forward to working with her in the future!

Planning my wedding was incredibly strenuous, so I hired Ani as the day-of wedding coordinator. She took care of everything, including handling a few problems my bridesmaids had (I didn't even know about it until the next day). She made everyone feel comfortable and did a great job.

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.

Gayle assisted me with my daughter's Bat Mitzvah. I needed her at the event site to set-up the decorations and oversee the vendors, including the caterer. She also coordinated a brunch for me at my home the next day. She supervised the caterer and the set-up for me that day so I could relax and enjoy my guests. She is reliable, creative, and a wonderful addition to my party needs! What Went Well: Gayle was extremely organized and professional. The B'nai Mitzvah set-up had a tight time schedule and she had everything ready on time. She was very responsive and everything went very smoothly. I would highly recommend Gayle for all your event planning needs.

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!

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.

Plan-it Vicki was incredible when I needed help planning my son's bar mitzvah. Vicki has a great sense of style and partnership -- picking up on where I needed ideas and input and where I just needed another set of hands. Her experience planning other celebrations like ours, while also being mindful of keeping each event unique, is invaluable. FIVE STARS, TWO THUMBS UP, Plan-it Vicki IS BETTER THAN CATS!!

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 !

It's so scary picking a vendor from Thumbtack but there was nothing scary about working with Jee Wright. Jee was an absolute pleasure to work with. She created a high-end bridal shower for a special friend and left no stone unturned. We had a private chef, a bartender whipping up delicious mimosas, the decorations were so amazing, I almost left them up as part of my apartment's decor. Jee was instrumental in keeping my anxiety at bay and delivered on everything she said she would, and then some. Jee and I are already planning our second event together and I've just mentioned to her that we will have another right after. Jee is amazing and the word is getting out so if you need an amazing event stylist.. act quickly. I might hire her full time just for myself! :)

    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.

    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.
