We had hired a day-of coordinator who fell gravely ill and was put on immediate bed rest. Thankfully she's fine now, but with mere weeks to go before the big day (and a destination wedding, no less), we were in crisis mode. Cue Sunshine Weddings, LLC. From beginning to end, Bill and Karen were exceptional. Bill took the logistical reins, patiently answered all of my questions, thoroughly handled the details of the scheduling/contractual/vendor process along with every single curve ball thrown our way (including a category 4 hurricane that severed all means of long distance communication less than 10 days before our nuptials) with a cool, calm head. With such sturdy captains at the helm, I had no alternative but to be a stress-free bride. This combination of words in the same sentence seems rather peculiar - it's even a little bit odd to write - but it is the honest truth. Bill and Karen surpassed our expectations. From decor execution and time management to tactfully handling cultural differences and gracefully putting out little "fires" (both seen and unseen) - I cannot praise them enough. I will be forever grateful to them for ensuring our day was nothing short of extraordinary. Thank you both so very, very much.

Wow! That's what Destiny clearly brings to a wedding! She does a 15 minute consultation AND a huge discount for Thumbtack clients (as of this review) which I really appreciate and makes the process that much better. We haven't started planning my wedding yet, but her site is clean and examples of her work are lovely! In comparison to other wedding planners I've researched this is not something I could do on my own! I vibed with her passion, responsiveness, artistry, professionalism, personality, and understanding for over the top-ness!

With planning a destination wedding to Orlando, Susan was able to design and delivery beautiful bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids! All planning was done over the phone, by text and email which was quite helpful! End result- simply wonderful!

Desiree was absolutely amazing! I was planning my wedding from out of state and don’t know what I would have done without Desiree! Desiree was in constant contact with me throughout the entire planning process, she offered her ideas and opinions like a friend, she handled communication with my vendors and thought of many details that I overlooked or didn’t even think of. The weeks leading up to the wedding were so hectic for me and Desiree was the one who kept everything organized, and made sure every single detail was perfectly aligned with my vision for our wedding day. Desiree worked tirelessly the day before and the day of, even noticing that I forgot to bring certain items and running out to purchase them rather than adding stress to my day. I honestly can’t put into words how thankful I am that I was fortunate enough to find Desiree on Thumbtack, I know my wedding would have been complete chaos without her kindness, professionalism and extreme attention to detail. Hiring Desiree was by far the best decision I made in my wedding planning process; anyone who hires her is super lucky to have found this gem, truly she is amazing!

I am happy to recommend Anna Smith. She did a wonderful job for my sons weeding in fact she went above and beyond to make sure that everything was perfect the day of the wedding. She was the first to arrive and stayed until the very end to make sure all the arrangements were perfect. Her attention to detail, her knowledge and expertise are like to no other. During the consulting stage she spent time with the groom and bride to make sure she understood their requirements and she then exceeded in providing exactly as they wished. She decorated the church, the banquet room, the wedding cake, and the bouquets. If you have a special event and want to see nice results Anna is the person that will make it happen (Weddings, Showers, Retirements, Prom)

I cannot say enough wonderful things about A Friend Affair Event Planning. My fiance and I got engaged September 2013, set our wedding date on Christmas Eve (when I found my dream venue), and hired A Friend Affair a few shorts weeks later for our April 2014 wedding. We had three short months to plan our wedding and couldn't have pulled it off without A Friend Affair. I wouldn't have been able to sit back and enjoy the day if I didn't have Hannah as my wedding planner. Our day was absolutely perfect and felt like a dream thanks to her. She is incredibly professional, talented, creative, super sweet, attentive, organized, and took care of every little detail I would have never even thought to do. I could go on and on about how amazing she is! I don't know what I would have done without all of her help. She is THE BEST and I'm so thankful we hired her.

    I have had the joy of working with Elisa a number of times. I am a Catering Sales Manager and I understand the importance of a great Wedding Coordinator. I appreciate Elisa's attention to details and her professional approach. Her clients love working with her and so do I! I always look forward to watching the details of her events come together on the wedding day.

    I hired Mimi & Val Events to plan my Wedidng and provide all decor. I was blown away by their service. Myriam, the planner and Decor Coordinator asked what my vision was, and over-delivered. She was with me step by step, helping me get everything off my to-do list knocked off. She also finished all decor a month before my wedding! She works hard at her craft, and ensures you get nothing but the best! She is not cheap!! She got me the most beautiful faux silk flowers and more. I really did feel like royalty at the end of my wedding. I am so glad I chose to go with this vendor. My wedding day was pure bliss and I have zero complaints!

    Jackie was everything and more than I had expected with hiring a wedding planner. She is extremely creative and made my wedding a breeze to plan down to every tiny detail. She was always available for my millions of questions. I could not have picked a better person to plan my wedding.

    About

    I am a writer by trade and have been planning events during most of my career within several different occupations. Therefore, (regarding weddings), I am able to assist with or completely write customized vows for you. Additionally, after I arrive to the venue on your special day, the "planner" in me makes me more than willing to assist with any last-minute needs - while waiting for the ceremony to start. (Please see the question below regarding one of my favorite stories for an example or more details.)

    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.
