for me, there were several things that were important in this party. The food, obviously! but also the guidance and planning that is a part of a party. We did a casual wedding for 120 ppl at a difficult location, under very challenging conditions. Ellen and her staff were very limited for setup time, so more time would have let her set up all the grand ideas that she had. There were points during the planning where I felt Ellen was more exited about the affair than I was! she was that invested. She worked closely with me, guiding me throughout, ready with ideas, keeping me focused to give me the best value possible while developing a vision! We wanted an elegant and eclectic brunch ,with lots of variety but keeping it to a reasonable price point. I look forward to working with her again, maybe I'll cater Passover this year!!!

Anastasiya and her team was the best wedding planner I could of found. Anastasiya helped me to the extreme and work with my budget as much as possible , always stayed on top of everything and made sure i didn't forget a single thing. On my wedding day I was able to breathe and enjoy everything because Anastasiya and her assistant had everything completely covered. Thank you so much from both my husband and I for all the help and beutiful decorations that made my day , will recommend to friends and family and will definitely use Make Fun Events on future events.

I cannot say enough great things about Adrienn and my excellent experience. She not only tailored my gown excellently, but I also purchased another gown from her for a future event. My daughter also found 2 fabulous dresses too. Anyone who needs any alterations, dress design, wedding gowns, bridesmaid dress, etc. You cannot go wrong with Adrienn. Highly recommend!! Great style and fabulous experience.

Patrick and his staff hit it outta the park! Patrick and team showed up early, stayed late, and had smiles on their faces the whole time! Before the event we met with Patrick to go through the whole run of show. We also had lots of phone calls to go through specifics as details changed up until the last minute. My fiancé is controlling (to say the least) and hard to please, and she was beyond happy with their work! On the day of the wedding, the team was professional and fast acting. We had SO many moving parts to our wedding and 160 guests! We were really worried about it going smoothly. We were mentally prepared for hiccups, but there were NONE! Everything was easy and smooth and our guests were SO happy! And Patrick stayed cool and calm the whole time. We highly recommend Patrick and Ultimate Affairs for any event! I would use them again in a heartbeat. We are so happy we found Patrick & Ultimate Affairs. Do yourself a favor on contact this guy! Even just talking to him on the phone will put you at ease :)

Where do i start Melyssa was great. I hired Alchemist Events to plan my wedding in SC 4/7/18. She came down early and was very organized. She gave my girl a schedule and meant business. 1st time ever my girls where ever on time. It rained for the wedding and Melyssa didn't care she told me its blessings from God lets do this lol. I forgot all about the rain and i really enjoyed myself. Everything was on-time and she was very professional. I would highly recommend her

Without Brittney our wedding would not have happened! Her help as our Day Of Coordinator ensured that every detail of the wedding was handled efficiently and perfectly. Knowing that Brittney was making sure that every vendor knew where to go and how to set our things up made it so much easier for us to focus on getting ready and enjoying our day. Once the wedding was under way she continued to keep everything and everyone running smoothly and made sure that every planned event went off without a hitch. Even though she wasn't acting as our wedding planner, she was always available to help answer any of our questions and offer her advice while we solidified our arrangements in the weeks leading up to the wedding. Her fun and positive attitude was so helpful in keeping us sane as well! I can't overstate enough how integral Brittney was to making our wedding as perfect as it was!

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 had an amazing experience with Loris. She was very attentive to my needs as a bride while planning my wedding and helped put me at ease amidst what would usually be a chaotic time. Very grateful for that. She was also flexible with my budget. On the day of she made sure everything went perfectly.

Working with Kellie was a great experience. I shared with her my vision for our wedding invitation and she nailed it. Adding on the envelope addressing was a lifesaver and all of our guests were impressed with the total package. Will definitely work with her again. Thank you!

I Used Michelle for my day of planning for my wedding and her service on the day of the wedding was worth every cent! She calmed my nerves, made sure all my bridal party was were they were supposed to be and organized everything to a tee! I couldn't have asked for a better right hand girl for my wedding day. Anyone who thinks they don't need a coordinator think again it saves your wedding day! I'd recommend Michelle to anyone! Thank you for making my day go smoothly!

I consulted with Decorum L'affair for my wedding and I was so pleased with the professionalism and quality of the work provided. My planner listened to all of my ideas, recommended affordable alternatives, and brought my vision for my special day to life in such a simple, yet romantic way. One thing that I loved the most about working with this company is that they are detail-oriented and well prepared. No stone goes unturned when it comes to their planning efforts for your party. Additionally, my planner was punctual and dependable. On the day of my wedding I didn't have to worry about anything except showing up to the venue. I really enjoyed using Decorum L'affair and will definitely use them again.

May I begin by saying this lady right here does it all . Not only does she organize parties, she bakes , decorates , and she is also a MC. She literally made my baby shower worth wild within a budget . She isn’t money hungry at all . I told her what my budget was, gave her my ideas, she also added her own ideas which was great and of course since I had pregnancy brain at the time her input was beyond helpful . I don’t normally believe in party planners because I always have that “ I can do it myself “ attitude but when your actually sitting down and trying to get your thoughts together and u just have a brain fart, you become discouraged and then have that” I don’t even wanna have this event anymore “ you need someone like Dawn who keeps you stress free at all times . Again Dawn thank you so much for my beautiful baby shower . I will be contacting you back again for my wedding plans ( if i ever get married 😒😒)😂😂

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.
