We are so grateful for Cathi! She did an amazing job. We were from out of town and she was ALWAYS available when I called...very responsive! She had so many options for writing our ceremony but let us make it personal to us as a couple and what we wanted for our wedding. She even drove over an hour just to meet us at the beach a few days prior to the ceremony. She was knowledgeable and professional as well! I would recommend Cathi to anyone needing an amazing officiant for their special day! Thanks again!

I hired Ikonic Event Planning to plan my entire wedding. I could not have been more pleased with my decision! I told Sarah that I wanted my wedding to have a "police theme" (my husband is a patrol officer); she listened very carefully to my ideas and vision of what I wanted my Wedding to be, and then brought the whole thing to full and complete fruition! I wanted an elegant yet fun event, and that is precisely what I got. The venue I chose was outdoors (basically a "field" by the water), and Sarah used her creativity and artistic talent to turn the space into everything I envisioned, and more. Sarah thought of every minute detail, and the police theme was tastefully incorporated throughout. She hand-made many of the decorations. She kept me sane lol. All the other vendors enjoyed working with her; they actually made comments to me about how fantastic she is with her professionalism and attention to timing and detail. (I picked the vendors, but Sarah did the leg work by researching several options for me to choose from.) As it turned out, the music, cake, food, and ambiance blended so perfectly, that many of my guests commented that my wedding was the "best they've ever been to." And major bonus - I was working with a modest budget, and we even came in UNDER budget! Brides, look no further, you will be in great hands with Ikonic!

    She planned my baby shower and she was very professional. The shower decorations were so creative and so perfect for the theme. My little man was blessed before he even arrived but this shower was the cake topper. She does everything by hand which adds a personal touch. I'll definitely use her and refer EVERYONE to her. There is no job she cannot handle.

    HomeSwagg has allowed me to enjoy my new home. I am an entrepreneur and I am always on the go. I deal with people daily so it was very important for my home to be a place of peace while also allowing me space to be creative. HomeSwagg has superseded my expectations. Julie has an eye that others do not possess. She can take one look at your space and visualize what she wants to create for you. They are very professional, prompt and patient. I highly recommend HomeSwagg for your needs. I will also use HomeSwagg for my upcoming wedding in 2019.

    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.
