Jennifer was truly a God sent angel fro my wedding festivities. I first contacted her to drape my reception and gazebo/canopy where the ceremony would be held. Then, I knew I would need a florist and a decorator for the day of, so she let me know she could do this as well. First, her spirit was so pure and graceful, she was relaxed, and she gave me the sense that she knew exactly what I wanted and everything would be fine. This was when I realized Jennifer was an amazing person and great at what she does. I trusted her judgment and her work. The week of the wedding, my mom asked Jennifer if she could decorate my bridal shower. Jennifer agreed. The shower was BEAUTIFUL!!! It was better than anything I could have imagined and everyone raved about the decorations. She did the prettiest background with flowers and set up the Southern Elegance theme just as I'd imagined!! I was blown away! I couldn't imagine how at the last minute, Jennifer came well equipped with everything to make my event so wonderful! Then, for the wedding, Jennifer worked tirelessly, making sure everything I wanted was immaculate! From the drapery on the canopy to the centerpieces, the flowers, the sweetheart table, the cake table, the favors table, the programs and sparklers.... the list could go on! Everything was top quality, everyone was amazed, everything ran so smoothly that the videographer told me that I was the most relaxed bride he had ever encountered. I was relaxed, and only because Jennifer took my vision fro my big day and made it INCREDIBLE!! I cannot thank her more, but I recommend her 100000%! She is not only an amazing wedding coordinator, but a new friend, and angel in my life! I can't wait until our baby shower!!! :)

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.
