My father ran into Dan at a carnival he was very impressed with his set up. And hired him for my wedding . He made everything so easy . Also has a very helpful convienant website with a gig builder on it for everything you need for your event. Also the time line made the wedding so perfect for all the vendors . For anything I couldn't decide what I wanted for certain pieces of the wedding he found music I absolutely loved . I was so pleased how it all turned out, as the wedding grew closer I did not have a wedding event planner I was worried about keeping track of everything that was going on with the wedding that's when Dan suggested his wife crystal be a day planner to keep everything on track , which she has done before . She did a phenomenal job . Everything ran so smooth and everything went perfect . For the amount of money charged we felt we got such a good deal . The day of the wedding was perfect between the two of them everything was on time all the evened went flawlessly and turned out to be a beautiful day . Thank you so much Dan and crystal me and Ryan couldn't have done with without you . I would highly recommend everyone who has a upcoming wedding ;)

Ms. Jennifer is simply the BEST! I needed her help to guide me through my niece's wedding and she was simply amazing. She deserves "THE MENTOR OF A LIFETIME AWARD!. She went above and beyond to help make this occasion so special. I'm looking forward to a lifetime friendship with Jennifer. Oh! Did I mention that her prices were the most reasonable that I found. I am eternally grateful!

I loved working with Levonda! The food was amazing and hot! My guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and had so many compliments. I couldn’t have asked for a better crew to work with and make my wedding day the best day ever. I’m so happy. I’ll always have her cater my events and I’ll recommend her to anyone else!

Ms. Cookee and her team was very professional and provided excellent customer service at my friend’s July 2016 wedding in Savannah, GA. The quality of the décor from the linen, flowers, setting and atmosphere was exquisite. Several folks at my table gave wonderful feedback on how lovely, professional, and creative the decorations were and especially the lighting. Ms. Cookee and L’Amore Bridal & Event Planning made sure everyone was taken care of. I have already recommended L’Amore Bridal & Event Planning to friends and Family! Sincere thanks and gratitude, Saroya Watkins

    Ms. Howell was a life savior for my husband and I. We didn't want a church/religious wedding even though I am a Christian. We were clueless about any other alternatives available to us. Ms. Howell not only married us but gave us different options of ceremony styles. We chose the "eternity" ceremony and everything was beautiful. I'd recommend Cheryl to anyone who wanted their wedding day to be non-religious and extra special!

    Nikki May not only planned my wedding, she also took the time to help with putting it all together. The wedding was far more spectacular than I ever imagined! I cannot thank you enough for all of your help, advice and guidance during all of the wedding planning and the wedding weekend! I wanted a vintage wedding with some special moments added for me and my groom, She made sure that all of our request were granted. We felt so special, with the attention we received, and could not wait for our special day to come. Nikki made sure our day was beautiful and exactly what we wanted. We were so pleased with how the evening went and how many compliments we received, on how it was like a fairytale. Thank you for everything!

        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.
