Stephanie was a great wedding planner for my 2015 destination wedding. She found a place in Winter Park Florida which sat right next to the water and was very picturesque and beautiful. She arranged everything from the 1942 convertible Cadillac request to the decor at the ceremony site and the reception. Very beautiful. My family was so impressed with her work. Now, after seeing Stephanie's work, my daughter is using Everything is an Event for her wedding this year July 2017!

I was looking for planners for my sister who is Orthodox Jewish and had very specific requirements around that, so we weren't able to hire Katie, but I wanted to note that she was the CONSUMMATE professional. She was very generous with her time and completely understanding and respectful of her needs. I could not have asked for a nicer interaction with someone I couldn't hire and had the circumstances been any different, I would have hired her in an instant. Where some wedding planners will be rude to you once they discover they don't meet your needs (I have interviewed several, between my own wedding and my sister's) Katie was kind and accommodating. I imagine it would be an absolute pleasure to work with her - and I got this read just off of our first interaction! I highly recommend her.

He did a great job! The music was on point. He pleased the guess with their request and stayed to the very end. He stuck to his word of what he would provide. It was just hard getting in contact with him before my wedding.

Working with Terri was truly a joy...she's very professional...over the course of planning, she reached out to me several times not regarding the planning but solely to check on me because wedding planning can become stressful and that was greatly appreciated

OMG that party!

Chelsea was my wedding planner and was absolutely incredible! My husband and I had been dumped for our initial wedding venue two short months before our wedding. We also had just switched new jobs so a lot was going on with not much time to plan. We knew our wedding date would remain the same though and thankfully that was when Chelsea was sent to us! Chelsea went above and beyond making dreams come true for us that we did not even think were possible!! Anytime things even attempted to become overwhelming, she handle everything every time! Going above and beyond is actually an understatement with the capabilities of Chelsea’s beautiful mind! June 10, 2018 was our wedding day and the best day of my life, and I owe so much to Chelsea!! Her ideas are genius and endless, and she truly is unstoppable making any party that much more glorious!

I hired Deserve Your Time to help out with my wedding planning. The consultant I worked with was extremely accommodating and supportive throughout the whole process. I tend to stress easily so I was immediately put at ease once I realized that Deserve Your Time had everything under control. The consultant assisted with almost every step of the planning process, from putting together guests addresses for the invitations to decorations the day of the wedding. I am forever grateful for all of the help I received and I would highly recommend Deserve Your Time services! I know I'll be using them again!

From start to finish, it was the perfect experience. We just loved having our wedding planned by Larissa. Every time we went for pre-wedding meetings, we were treated so kindly and she went out of her way each time to make us feel happy and at-ease. The wedding reception itself was just perfect (she sourced the venue for us). It was our dream come true. The reception was decorated perfectly and just how we wanted. The setting was beautiful, with amazing places in and around the venue for pictures. We received so many compliments about the food and drinks, as well as the setting, and organization by Larissa. We are thankful to her for all she did for us.

    My husband and I hired her for our wedding reception, I was on a really small budget and she worked with us. Christine is so nice when you get to meet her and very professional. She helped us create a very beautiful memory in my back yard and all my guests had a great time. And I would hire her again in the near future!!

    Shelia was great. She helped me stay in my budget and we figured out a flower arrangement that worked best for me. I am excited to see my flowers on my wedding 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.
