Kimo's Akamai Catering did a wonderful job providing services for my retirement ceremony on Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam. The food was delicious and I received many, many compliments. (bonus- the leftovers were great for our extended family and friends visiting!) Chef Lauren was very responsive and easy to work with. I didn't get a chance to actually visit the buffet, but her crew made me two plates and brought them to me! Guests said the staff constantly monitored the buffet, keeping it filled and clean. I left the menu choice largely up to her and was not disappointed. Fresh made malasadas- yum! I would hire Kimo's Akamai Catering again without reservation! In fact, the food was so good, I'm searching for a reason to hire Kimo's Akamai again!

I've known Carlos The DJ, now for years. He DJ'd for my daughter's wedding back in 2009. I've also been to many events that he was the DJ for and always had a great time and enjoyed his music choices. Love how organized and detail oriented he is and if we had to do it again, we would not have hired the wedding coordinators that we had for my daughter's wedding and we would have definitely put everything totally in his hands. Not only does Carlos provide DJ services, but he also provides full-service wedding planner services! The man is so knowledgeable and keeps on top of all the technology, has the best equipment and also has an incredible extensive collection of music! He's so great at what he does that you can't help but having that feeling of being in the right hands and you won't have ever worry about him being a diva and just doing his own thing! Everything he does for you revolves around your requests and instructions! And if you're not sure what instructions to give or what requests to make, it's ok and don't worry....he'll have lots of suggestions for you and won't let you down! I'm old skool and I truly believe that you can always judge how well of a job someone will do by how much they love what they're doing....and it's obvious Carlos totally enjoys what he does because he will have a smile on his face, a sparkle in his eyes and his feet will be dancing through-out your entire event!

Lee made our wedding wonderful. My friends and family loved how she decorated and managed our wedding overall. I was nervous how my wedding would turn out because I had no idea what to do. She taught us every step of the way with patience and kindness. I looked into a couple of wedding planners, but her service fee was a lot lower than the others. Granted, I wasn't expecting much, but she performed above and beyond expectations. If anyone is having a wedding in Hawaii (ohahu), I would 100% recommend Lee from JWL with all confidence!!

I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful Tropical Moon Events was at our wedding. All of the cocktails were such huge hits that they were all everyone wanted to drink--even those who usually only drank wine or beer! Most notably, the Passion Mai Tais and Lychee Mint Spritzers were everyone's favorite. I thought that the Cucumber Basil Gin & Tonic was very refreshing. The bartenders were so wonderful and fun, and kept up a great pace for all of the thirsty guests. The party would not have been the same without Tropical Moon Events there to liven it up!

Events by Lei was a wonderful easy experience. She helped us coordinate our hawaiian wedding from california by email, text and calls. She was very responsive to our questions and easy to work with during our entire wedding planning. She is very detailed, precise and easy going. I would highly recommend Lei.

We had a fantastic experience using Something New for our Day-Of Coordination for our recent wedding at Kualoa Ranch. Charelle was fun to work with, organized, easy to communicate with and a wealth of knowledge for every question I had in the lead-up to the wedding. She met with us the week before the wedding and also ran our rehearsal for our bridal party the day before the wedding, which helped everyone feel confident for the ceremony the next day. The wedding day itself went by flawlessly -- Charelle and her assistant Jillian did a great job managing all the vendors and we were able to stick to the timeline without any delays. Having the two of them there coordinating everything definitely helped me stay calm and enjoy the wedding day instead of worrying about things. We received so many compliments from our guests on what a smooth day it was, resulting in a fantastic wedding everyone enjoyed. Initially I was on the fence about hiring a wedding coordinator but my husband and I think it was one of the best decisions we made! Thank you Something New for doing an incredible job and making sure our wedding day was perfect!

Kalona was the most wonderful wedding planner. From the very first time I spoke to her, she was polite, accessible, and patient. Wedding planning can be a very time consuming, stressful time in a bride’s life, but Kalona made this journey as simple as possible! The ceremony was absolutely perfect. I honestly couldn’t have imagined the day to go any smoother. Kalona has an amazing team of photographers, hair/make up stylists, musician’s and more. The cake was even stunning (and delicious) too! While doing research on weddings in Hawaii, I contacted many sites, but no other planner was as responsive as Kalona. I couldn’t be happier with our decision to go with Kalona and A Rainbow in Paradise Weddings!

    I like scenic views of Hawaii and I had great experiences with I Do Wedding & Beauty Hawaii. I was satisfied with their makeup, hair, and photos of me and my hubby. I was not a very good model, but if I can do it again, I will make better pose. haha. I know that the prices in Hawaii is expensive, but if you compare with the price of wedding photos in Korea, I Do Wedding has reasonable packages. You will have fantastic views of Hawaii on your photos. I hope you do not miss the chance with I Do Wedding & Beauty Hawaii. However, if you want to have photos with different dresses, you need to pay more or there would be another packages, such as snap photos. I wanted to take a pictures with different dresses, but I could not. Hawaii is a good place with all of nice views, and I Do Wedding & Beauty Hawaii has a good team for wedding photos and experiences. Feel free to call and ask them about your wedding plan. The manager/consultant who is a makeup artist and hair artist is very kind and professional. Enjoy your wedding in Hawaii.

      Colby helped me find multiple options for my wedding. From her suggestions I found an amazing fake florist, an incredible DJ, an impeccable makeup artist, a perfect photographer, and a hairstylist who blew my socks off! She was amazing at not only finding me the great selections I made to help my wedding be perfect, but she excelled at giving me OPTIONS for each of them, so I could choose those that really suited my, my groom, and our wedding! Thank you Colby for all your help. We couldn't have done it without you!

      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.
