Scott and Nalani did an amazing job bartending my son's wedding at Destin Bay House. Very friendly, professional and went out of their way to make sure everything was right and everyone was taken care of. I heartily recommend them for their work ethic and reasonable charge. Claire L.

I did a DIY wedding in Pensacola, Fl. My husband suggested using Thumbtack to find a DJ. I had never heard of it before, but I met Angie thru this app. I spoke to her a couple of times over the phone. She was responsive, enthusiastic, and professional. She was more then helpful with all my uncertainties and questions. She even made accommodations for a portable speaker to play music during my wedding ceremony on the beach. I provided a song list a couple days before the wedding and she never complained. They arrived on time and I think they played most of the songs on the list. I was too busy having fun so I couldn't remember. Lol....I would only change 2 things, #1. Our 1st dance song with my husband should have been in Spanish (but its not they're fault, I don't think I relayed that info). #2 I would have liked for the DJ to amp up the guests a little bit more. Although it was an outdoor party in a residential area, so not sure if that would've been appropriate. I was skeptical about hiring a DJ that I've never heard of before but all in all the music was great and I would definitely recommend this DJ husband and wife duo. Thanks. ☺

    “Getting engaged was so exciting but planning a wedding seemed overwhelming! I didn’t know where to start and I work full time. I was so relieved when a friend recommended Weddings by Lydia. Lydia and Donnette were so supportive and knowledgeable and were lots of fun, too! Lydia came with me to meet the vendors she recommended to discuss the ideas I had for my wedding. She stayed in touch with me on a regular basis to update me and to answer my questions. My mother loved the wedding reception because she was able to visit with family and friends while Weddings by Lydia had everything under control. I will remember it forever and I would recommend Weddings by Lydia to anyone”!! Diana G., Pensacola, FL

    Forever I Do Weddings and Special Events is a true gem! From the first phone call and introduction, to the last rose petal on my daughters bouquet, everything was spot on! I can't thank Cheri Pope and her professional staff enough for the utmost care that was taken with our family during this entire event. During our very first phone call my mind was set at ease and every conversation we had afterward was given exactly the same care and attention. My daughter was married on Pensacola Beach and the day before the wedding they were forcasting rain. At the rehearsal that night Cheri was in action mode major, making sure that we knew there was an alternate plan in place just in case Mother Nature truly did rain down on us the next day. As it turns out the wedding went off without a hitch at the beach with everything looking just spectacular...a mothers dream for her babies big day! I would not change one thing. We were blessed beyond belief with this company and their above and beyond quality and service. Thank you Cheri for your caring, thoughtful,enthusiastic, and professional demeanor during the entire wedding planning process. We love you❤️

      Dolly and Michelle did an amazing job on our wedding. They stayed within our budget we had, and communicated every little detail back to us. I didn't have to worry about anything. We got to enjoy our guest during and after the wedding. I will be referring my friends to these ladies.

      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.
