Amber was great!!! Her paintings were wonderful. All the kids enjoyed it including grown ups they are still talking about her and the kids keep asking me when are you going to have her in Stamford again? I can honestly say that she is the best facepainter I've ever met and I don't regret a bit that it was her that I chose. Even the balloon twisting was wonderful everyone enjoyed them. I am glad they were on time, as soon as she came she started with facepainting and kenny with the balloons. I Will definitely contact AAfacepainting for future events. Amber, I thank you so much for making the party as wonderful as you did, I believe without AAfacepainting the party wouldn't be memorable and wonderful.

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 ;)

My wedding was this year in August and Chimere was my wedding coordinator. She did an amazing job with my decorations and helping me find all of my vendors. It was a pleasure to have Chimere coordinate my wedding and I will be using her in my future endeavors. I would highly recommend her for any event that you are planning.

Jennifer planned my husbands' event which was threefold, birthday, retirement and New Year's Eve all rolled into one. Although finding the right venue was a challenge, Jennifer never wavered in her commitment and stuck with me all the way. She came to appointments with me, helped with the decorations, the menu and working with vendors. She is always pleasant, professional and even tempered. The event turned out great. I could not have done it without Jennifer's knowledge and expertise. I would recommend Jennifer for the planning of any event. She's the best!

Top notch service! We organized a Quinceañera for our daughter and utilized J.R. Events for our servicing needs. From the beginning, both Jordan and Britain were fantastic! They were punctual, professional, friendly, and worked extremely hard to help our event be the best it could be. They were extremely consistent with portions (which is important when catering your own event), maintaining clean-up during the event, and post clean-up and breakdown duties. Our guests were super impressed with their work ethic and how fun and personable both Jordan and Britain were. I cannot say enough great things about them both! I would highly recommend J.R. Events for any and all event needs. Thanks again for helping make our event a success!

I used Patty’s services for a baby shower of 30 people. Her food was fabulous. Nearly every guest had a compliment on how good her food was. She was professional, punctual and responsive. I hope I have another event where I can use her services. Thank you Patty!

If I could give Ali 10 stars, I would. We had a small wedding of 40. Ali was extremely organized the minute she walked in the door. Besides taking care of the wine and beer we served, she also helped with the cake cutting and just overall clean up during the wedding. Ali helped make my daughter's small wedding feel like the event we hoped it would be. I can't thank her enough for all her help and will book her again when the opportunities arise.

We were in a bind for an Open House party when our plans for catering fell through. We were expecting 40 to 60 professionals and had one week to find another option. I accessed Thumbtack for the first time, and Karin Munnell with K&J Heart Healthy Catering responded. Prompt response, very professional, and the food delicious! Even with the short time frame, she was able to meet with us and bring samples. She worked within our requests - like having no onsite kitchen - and brought us some great ideas too. I recommend her highly. Very pleased with Thumbtack as well!

Events By Vash, LLC was contracted by E3 Business Group, Inc. to create an event experience for the 6 year anniversary of our North Florida Chapter in Jacksonville, FL. We were impressed with every aspect of services provided. What stood out was the insight and care of details provided by Event Consultant Nicole Taylor. Her ability to work with all leaders and intuit our theme helped create an atmosphere and logistically tight anniversary. Our nearly 200 guests were still commenting on how well they enjoyed themselves weeks after. We highly recommend this company and are sure to utilize their services in the future.

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.
