Leneille was absolutely fantastic! She made sure our day ran smoothly and even went out of her way to get us an extremely nice wedding gift along with helping us find a caterer and saved us when there was going to be rain on our day. She was always available to talk or text whenever we needed help with absolutely anything. When there was a weird moment with a vendor, she smoothed it over without us having to deal with it. She should be charging much more than she is as she was the single best decision we made when planning our wedding.

Since my wedding is so far away, we have obviously not started doing anything, but during our first meeting, we clicked instantly! She had so many great ideas..not to mention she is the sweetest woman. I went ahead and put my deposit down because I knew instantly that I wanted her to not only be my florist but a crucial part in my wedding planning overall.

I had a great experience working with Sequoia Daniels. She was very professional during the entire process of planning my wedding reception. I contracted Sequoia for day of planning. She made sure that my day ran as smooth as silk. There were even some issues with The reception venue that I contracted being extremely difficult to work with, (this was not her fault I contracted this venue before hiring Sequoia) she jumped right in to smooth out any issues with venue and their staff, to keep me completely stress free. I would definetly recommend her services for your event planning and coordination needs.

I really enjoyed having Jazzy as a decorator for my wedding. I liked her ideas and she tried to keep me updated about the changes that were made via text and email as I live outside of the city where I was getting married. I had hoped to meet her in person to go over the details of the wedding, but we did not meet until the day prior and I was not able to see the flower arrangements and decorations until the day of the wedding. The decorations for the reception was BEAUTIFUL there were small minor details that where overlooked. (i.e. the card placements were not in the correct order for the seating arrangements). Overall, I enjoyed the experience. Thanks Jazzy.

Working with Victoria was so smooth and easy! She's a professional with years of experience and it shows in her work. In wedding planning, you always want to work with vendors that'll make your life easier, and she was that for us! Her arrangements were exactly as I envisioned them, if not better. Victoria was super responsive, clear, and friendly throughout the entire process. I highly, highly recommend her services! Thanks so much, Victoria!

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!!

Our big day was New Year's Eve 2014 in Nashville,TN!!!!! Kori was amazing!! I had a six month engagement......so planning was at a fast pace! When she jumped on board,I told her I didn't wanted this to be stress free! After I did the big chunks like picked my venue and caterer.........I wanted to hand EVERYTHING over to her. She handled everything perfectly! My day went smoothly and on time. I had 12 bridesmaids......make-up,hair and photos were done on time! That's unheard of!!! Even with a party of four that's rare. I had an extra hour to just relax and chill before our ceremony started! That was an awesome to time to reflect and calm my nerves. Kori paid attention to everything I told her during our meetings and made sure that happened! Kori was my fairy bridal godmother!! Our wedding day was perfect.......I want to do it all over again!

I was delighted to find a day-of coordinator that was experienced and affordable. "Day-of" coordination included more than the wedding day: Talia visited the venue weeks ahead of time, was available to discuss and suggest ideas for our plans, and organized the rehearsal. She was knowledgeable about the wedding ceremony and reception, but flexible to include elements we wanted. Talia gave many useful suggestions which we incorporated. On the wedding day Talia and her team were organized and calm. She showed up early and stayed after. We were very pleased.

I knew from the beginning of our conversations on Stephanie that she was very professional. When we met in person to go over details for decor and floral for my wedding I was blown away. She was not only very professional, but thorough, provided sample visuals of the decor and florals and a very detailed invoice of all the services and items she was providing. The day of the wedding she was punctual and I was very impressed with her work for my wedding. I was happy and would recommend her to any one who is in need of decor for any type of event. Thank you Stephanie!!!

Where do I even begin, Heirlum Events planned my entire wedding from start to finish. They were there every step of the way and made sure that the wedding went off without a hitch. The decor for my engagement day was stunning and the decor for my wedding day was breathtaking. My husband and I were blown away by the beauty of it all and how much detail was put into the space. I highly recommend Heirlum Events for all your special events, especially if you want a company that cares about your event like it was their own. Thank you sooooo much 🤗 Mr& Mrs Faletti

Nieca helped us pull together our son's wedding in 6 weeks! She was amazing! She took the exact photos of the cake, colors, and decorations they wanted and got it all done exactly as pictured. It turned out excellent. She handled it all, even down to the caterers and wedding cake. It took a huge burden off of myself and my husband so all we had to do was be the parents of the groom! I highly recommend her!

Finally Forever Wedding & Events LLC did an amazing job on our wedding, reception, and dinner. They made our day amazing! I would have questions at 8am or 8pm and Alicia was there for it all. Our guest still talk about how spectacular our wedding was. The best day of my life was stress free thanks to Alicia and her team.

Thank you to Carolina and her team for our beautiful wedding decor!! You will not be disappointed with choosing Mrs. Parrot Events and Design! They provide unique decor within a reasonable budget. Carolina is nothing but kind and will listen to all of your decoration concerns and answer your questions. We wanted something elegant, classy and something different that no one else has used before. She worked with us until we created our perfect wedding decor. Every time we walked in to the ballroom and garba hall we were speechless! The decor was beyond beautiful and stunning and till this day we have received compliments about the decorations. Carolina and the entire team were professional and we never had to worry about their services. We would definitely recommend them to any future couple getting married! Thank you Carolina and the entire Mrs. Parrot team! Love Paola & Diego

If you are getting married, definitely plan on using E & P Events as your wedding planner. From all the wedding expenses, this was the most valuable. My family, friends, and vendors were all skeptical when I first mentioned I hired a planner, but once they saw how beautifully the wedding was executed, they were raving about Peter and Essie. In the months prior to the wedding, Peter did an incredible job keeping me grounded and making sure all details were addressed and well thought out. He also helped negotiate better deals with almost all my vendors. I was a pretty demanding bride and he was so patient and cool with me the whole time. During the wedding events, he was under the radar and handled a few emergencies so smoothly that no one noticed a thing, including me on that day. People are still raving about how organized and classy the wedding was. My parents were so appreciative of his work because they could mingle with family and friends instead of handling logistics with the hotel and each vendor. The wedding day was a beautiful memory for my husband and I, it was better than we could have imagined and we're so thankful we trusted Peter with our big day.

I had the pleasure of working with Marilyn four years ago in planning the entertainment for my wedding. The DJ was outstanding and everyone had a great time. Marilyn was so very easy to work with. She's professional, organized, and very knowledgeable about what's new and upcoming in social events. I will only use Stepping Stone for all my future events.

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.
