If you are looking for a caterer for any reason, stop your search here. Chef Brian is the greatest to work with! Dade County Food Group catered my 100 person wedding.... And HAMD MADE GNOCCHI for everyone. I believe Chef Carlos was up for many hours the night before rolling out the tiny gnocchi for my guests- now that's service! Cocktail hour was such a hit that my guests are still craving the chicken and waffles and bacon wrapped, goat cheese stuffed dates! (Ps- Please let Brian add bacon to your menu! They are bacon magicians). I had such a wonderful experience working with Brian and his entire team from the private food tasting, to his help with referrals, to my wedding day. Brian's staff was professional, looked great, was earlier than on time and even had everything cleaned and organized before they left. Now for Brian's wait staff and bartenders- my guests are STILL talking about the level or service they got! Usually people gush over the flowers, the food, or (blush) the bride! But my guests were most impressed with how wonderfully the staff served the food, tended the bar, cleaned up plates, and glasses never went empty! It started pouring after our cocktail hour, so Brian's staff physically moved one of the bars and all the alcohol/ drinks under the tent and kept pouring the bubbly. If there was an issue, I never knew about it. That's what you want on your wedding day- a caterer who serves amazing food and provides your guests with an amazing experience all while keeping you stress free! Thank you Brian, Carlos and team! You guys are my caterers for life !

I am so thrilled that we found Tasty Creations Catering for my daughter's wedding. This is the most professional Catering Company anyone could ever find. The communication between Chef David and his beautiful wife, are outstanding. I had asked question after question and always received responses back immediately or very soon after. They both made me feel special during this whole ordeal with the wedding planning. They were never too busy to communicate. After searching several Catering Companies, Tasty Creations came through with a superb menu for my daughter's wedding. They worked with us according to our budget and never did they make us feel like we were cheap with the dollar amount we were able to afford. Chef David set up a tasting for us and him and his wife came out to our place to do the tasting of appetizers, entrees, side dishes, and even cake tasting. The remarkable thing about Chef David, is that all his food is prepared right in front of you at the tasting and everything is so fresh and delicious. He even cracks jokes while preparing the foods for tasting. He's from North Carolina, which told me right off the bat, that he was going to be good! Chef David is very unique as he comes out to the site of the event and doesn't bring already prepared food to just set on warming trays. He comes out to the event hours about 4 hours in advance and prepares each food item right there! I find that amazing as not many places offer that type of catering service. He is the best in our book and I would never look any further again. He was prompt and his serving staff was very professional looking and super pleasant. The food was so fresh and absolutely the most delicious food we have ever had. It was an honor to hear our guests keep complimenting the meal. As a side note, I was in a bind for our rehearsal dinner, and I contacted Chef David and explained it was short notice but I wanted to see if he could help us out. I told him we had a very limited dollar amount for the rehearsal dinner and explained briefly what we wanted to have that evening. Chef David got back with me a few hours later with a menu plan that was right in our budget and exactly what we were looking for as far as the dinner we had hoped to have. Chef David and Margarita are willing to work with you no matter what your budget may be and you never have to be embarrassed if you are limited in what you can spend. By the way, Chef David is the absolute best lasagna maker! We have ordered numerous trays from him just to have for ourselves for dinner. We have never found any restaurant that can come close to Chef David's lasagna! Hats off to the best Caterer in the world, Chef David from Tasty Creations Catering! (By the way, Chef David, you finally have a hat to wear)! Lol You can't go wrong with Tasty Creations Catering!

As a wedding Planner/decorator I come across plenty of Officiates and I have to tell you no one like Damaris , I hired her for my own wedding OMG she is awesome. She made our wedding so beautiful and special. We had the love letter in the box ceremony everyone was talking about how great of a job she did. She responds quick; she is pleasant, she is punctual; always give clear answers to any questions you may have, great sense of humor Nothing I can say can describe her professionalism and how good she is. Brides hire her; you will absolutely love Damaris. Thanks Damaris

Janeal was a pleasure to work with. She was flexible and worked around our dates,time, budget, and taste. She was easily accessible either via text or phone which is a major plus especially when dealing with people in South Florida. Upon our wedding day our home looked perfect and things could not have been any smoother. Janeal also recommended a DJ for our reception and he was affordable and a pleasure to work with. My wife and I will definitely do more business with Janeal and we recommend her to whoever is reading this. They will not be disappointed.

We decided to get married in a matter of 1 month. We searched several places for venues and the prices were extremely exorbitant for a wedding of 30 people. So we decided to reduced the amount of people invited to our wedding. We were able to have a private, cozy, simple and elegant wedding at my parents house. It was our best decision we have made for a very affordable price. Yrene the manager was exceptional and very professional. We were able to get married as planned on 6/22/18. Thank you for making our dreams come true! My bouquet, table center pieces, table set up, and the food were the best we’ve seen or tasted compared to other wedding celebrations. Thank you for your guidance, and hope that many other couples enjoy your professional services as much as we did! Thanks Gonzalez Family

I'm so happy someone told me to download thumbtack. I work crazy hours and needed someone to just deal and handle everything. The venue I wanted was a beach venue and hadn't had a wedding yet (so they had no clue about times, order etc). I started freaking out and attended a work event hosted by Daly at Go2Girl then I saw she was on thumbtack so I reached out to her. Anyhow she took all my Pinterest pins and scatter brain notes and made my wedding dreams come true (I wish I found her sooner so I didn't have all that stress I was dealing with) She's great with time lines and dealing with vendors

A little over a year ago we made our first and most important investment for our wedding and that was to hire Ana from Color Me Mine. We had a destination wedding in Florida and needed help bringing it all together. From the first time we spoke with Ana, her kindness and excitement for our wedding were refreshing. Ana took the time to listen to our ideas and presented her expertise and knowledge of wedding planning. Ana always made us feel as though she had everything 100% under control. That no challenge was too big for her to handle. We loved everything she came up with! Ana even visited us when she was up north in New Jersey, and was relentless on making sure our wedding was the best ever! She even helped bargaining to get us the best deals possible from our vendors!!! Ana worked with us on our wedding to finalize timelines, confirm vendors, run rehearsal, and of course bring it all together on our special day. The day of the wedding ran so smoothly. Ana had every little detail worked out, every person in place, every special moment captured, just perfect...We are forever grateful for her hard work, commitment, passion, and enthusiasm that she had for our wedding. She was super organized and we were not worried about a single thing the whole day & night! Ana is phenomenal! Words cannot express my gratitude for Ana. Our wedding was something out of a fairy tale. It was the PERFECT wedding and it's all because of Ana. We came to her with a simple idea and she worked her magic and brought it to life. We were incredibly lucky to have had her as our planner and we also very fortunate that we ended up with a new friend through this all. We would recommend her and trust her with anything. We would definitely recommend Ana of Color me Mine to any couple who needs someone that would understand their vision and work tirelessly to make that vision reality.

Words can’t even begin to describe my appreciation towards Mariane and all she did. I had a dream wedding and specific things I wanted and Mariane took my vision and not only turned it into reality but she made it better than what I could have ever imagined. Our wedding was flawless. People could not stop talking about how amazing it was and saying how it was the best wedding they ever been to and like a fairytale. This would not have been possible without Mariane. She went above and beyond. Anything I needed she was always there to help me make decisions and implement them. And she is truly a one of a kind person who has become a great friend through this process. I beyond recommend Mariane....as in if you choose to hire a wedding planner you should not pick anybody else!!

Elaine was with me every step of the way for all of my random questions, thoughts, etc as I was planning my wedding. She even came to my wedding dress alteration sessions, helped me select the perfect robes for my bridesmaids for our "getting ready" photos, met with my florist, came to my meetings with the catering manager at the hotel, and contacted All of my vendors to set up a timeline for The day of. I was having trouble incorporating one of my colors into the decor so she even offered to make beautiful little boxes for the tables that would act as another giveaway and would add a contrasting color to the whole decor. I could not have asked for a more dedicated wedding planner leading up to my actual wedding day.

Thank you Irene!!!!!!!!!!!!! When we decided to get married we knew that it would be necessary to have someone to help us with the organization as we live in New York City and it would be complicated to coordinate the service providers, venue, church and transportation. Living there we searched the internet and found Irene’s website. After a telephone interview, we realized that Irene was a very professional person, passionate about her work yet at the same time very sensitive and in tune with the wishes and imagination of the bride and groom. It seemed to us that she would be a perfect fit to work with us on the planning of our wedding. Irene thought of every detail always ensuring that everything came out as we had imagined. In addition, Irene introduced us to her contacts who were all of the highest level of professionalism; each one kind and open to suggestions – the photographer, caterer, DJ, hair stylist, make-up artist and obviously including her direct team. The only problem we encountered was that Irene and her crew threw such an amazing party, that our family and friends are already expecting that we repeat it… Irene, we want to thank you sincerely for having helped us organize this wonderful party and the chance to create unforgettable memories with our families and friends.

From beginning to end, working with Bobbie was an absolute pleasure. She took all my ideas and was able to bring them to life better than I ever could. My entire wedding went off without a hitch (we planned the whole thing in 3.5 months!) and I can honestly say I could not have done it without her. All my family and friends raved about her the day of the wedding as well, about how attentive she was towards everyone's needs. Bobbie is worth every penny and you will not be disappointed with her services!

Keith was an absolutely amazing asset and essential part of our ceremony. He was thorough, thoughtful, and incredibly well organized. Not only was he helpful in the planning and discussions leading up to our wedding, his presence and demeanor day of and throughout the ceremony was nothing short of perfect. Keith is a very versatile and professional individual. He can be serious and professional, while also being the life of the event and humorous when the time is right. Our wedding would not have been the same without him. I would highly recommend Keith's services to anyone looking to fill such an integral role in their ceremony. With much love and respect to Keith, thank you! Tim & Kelsey Lucas

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.
