We enjoyed having her as a wedding planner and caterer. The food was great and we really enjoyed the breakfast for dinner, including the pancake cutting instead of the typical wedding cake. As a planner she really held things together. I have seen weddings where the planner (or day of organizer) is too quiet and cannot handle the crowds. This is not the case with Stephanie. She was politely in control when she needed to be (like at the rehearsal), but at the same time she disappeared when she needed to. It was like magic was happening that we couldn’t see that made things run smoothly! I know she deflected at least 1 or 2 major things that happened the morning of the day of. She kept the groom in the loop as needed, and let the bride have her day without the stress. Stephanie also provided us with things like chairs and other items when we were struggling to find an affordable or practical option. She also held off rain that was forecasted to threaten our day! I would highly recommend her as a planner.

I have admired the creation of this Sisters' work for years, from church events, birthdays and weddings. I have experienced her work first hand in my wedding. She is a wealth of information, innovation and creation. From a wedding planner to decorator. Give her a piece of fabric or a flower and she brings life to a room creating a magical effect of fairy tale grandeur. Just tell her what you need or what your dreams are and she will make it happen. Continue to strive for EXCELLENCE Fayleen !! You are AWWWSHUM !!!

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Sola has been throughout the my entire wedding planning experience. She was highly responsive to every inquiry, and put out a lot of fires along the way. Her attention to detail is incredible, and her patience is truly a gift from God. I am so glad I found Unique Events here on thumbtack because I don't see how anyone else could have done it any better. Everyone at my son's wedding commented on what a wonderful job the coordinator was doing keeping everything flowing together. Sola, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for a job well done. You made our day fabulous!!

Kerri was outstanding! We highly recommend her. We had already decided on ceremony, venue, cake, band, flowers, etc when we realized that we really needed someone to actually coordinate everything the day of our wedding. Kerri was attentive to details and reviewed everything we sent over and made sure nothing was overlooked. Based on her expertise, she and made suggestions on any decisions we still needed to make. We sent her all of our vendor info and she took it from there. She made sure we stayed on track with the timeline without being overbearing. We even had a mini crisis where the banquet coordinator forgot to give directions to the staff to arrange a flip (we needed the head table set up on top of the ceremony stage) and Kerri took care of it. It was great to have her to deal with all the little details on the big day, so that we didn't have to worry about a thing! We never could have pulled off such a perfect event without Kerri!

Ms. Johnson coordinated my wedding two years ago. She helped make my special day one of the best days of my life. To this day my husband and I are told how beautiful everything was and what a great time they had. She will be the one we call when we plan our 10 year anniversary celebration.

If you are looking for an awesome coordinator at an affordable rate, Tracey is the perfect person! She has been a phenomenal planner and eliminated me having to be stressed on my wedding day! I was so thankful for her services! Her work was high quality and absolutely perfect. A year later, I needed her for a baby shower and again she amazed me with her creativity and craftiness! When I use Tracey for my events, I always get great feedback!

I met Tina completely by accident, but it was one of the best "accidents" of my life. After our initial meeting I felt confident that Tina was going to do an excellent job planning and executing my wedding. She knew exactly what I wanted and needed - she suggested several things that I had not even thought about! Tina was very organized and helped me every step of the way. She went above and beyond to make my wedding special! I highly recommend her services.

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.
