Jennifer is fantastic ! You can tell she loves what she does. She is eloquent, professional, approachable and so easy to be with. Her sermon was talked about after the service because she took the time to get to know us and hit all of the key points of our wedding, love and blended family. She went with the flow considering we had a wedding in a home with large families. I would hire Jennifer again.

Rick Mangram is fantastic at what he does, and his prices are extremely reasonable given how much he does. My fiancee and I were getting overwhelmed, but once we brought Rick in, planning our wedding was a breeze. He'll coordinate with your vendors, keep everybody on schedule, and take a lot of stuff off your plate. Knowing that Rick was on top of things gave us peace of mind and made the entire event more fun for us. I knew that, at any time, I could call or text Rick and let him know something had come up, and he would handle it quickly and professionally. Day of, he was on site before anyone else, running the show. We didn't have a single second of stress because Rick and Maggie were so well prepared and ran everything so fluidly. During the reception, Rick was always available to keep the party going--more than once he led a dance or hopped on the mic to keep everybody going. I promise you won't be disappointed with Rick!

I had the best experience ever working with Diana. She took my vision and made it even better. She worked with me and my expensive taste in flowers and helped me get everything I wanted within my budget. She tied in every texture so elegantly in the bouquets and centerpieces. (Unfortunately...I didn't get a picture of the centerpieces...waiting for professional photos) Aside from that she was so pleasant and kind...and gives wonderful hugs (which you might need when wedding planning). I received so many compliments on my flowers and centerpieces. And will definitely be referring anyone looking for a florist to her. I look forward to hopefully working with her again in the future. I'm sure I'll find something for her!!

Aly was a true godsend. We're very easy going, but even still she helped us keep our sanity through caterer issues and general wedding planning stress. She was so incredibly friendly, accommodating, and truly vested in our success, peace of mind, and happiness. Hiring Aly was, without a doubt, the single best choice we made - well, aside from saying "I do". ;)

Thankful to Ms Profit, she saved my wedding day as my initial coordinator backed out a week before my wedding, she took over decorating, coordination and handling all my vendors. My day was beautiful no one could tell that she stepped in last minute she ran my day as if it was her own wedding.

Allana at City Chic Events was invaluable to us in planning and executing our daughter's wedding. She was professional, flexible, reasonable in price, approachable and available. She communicated with us as much as we needed her to. She was prompt in her responses and offered suggestions when asked. Allana worked quietly behind the scenes the day of the wedding. I found out, after the fact, that she had to repair my daughter's wedding dress after someone stepped on it. I never noticed!! Thank you so much for all you did to make our daughter's wedding a dream come true! And thank you from a grateful MOB for helping me maintain my sanity through this wedding planning journey! You are so appreciated and we highly recommend you! City Chic Events offers various plans for any budget, check them out, seriously! FOB said it was the best money he spent in the budget!

Robert & his Team at FINAO Wedding Design & Event professionals made us feel like we were more than a client, but as best friends. They really listened to our wants and needs for both the wedding ceremony and reception. The theatrical entertainment they pulled off at the reception is still a magical wonder, but either way our guests of 325 were in awe! I am always telling my coworkers and friends to hire FINAO for any event! They have connections that you can't look up online or in the yellow pages. They have partnered with the most amazing DJ who makes his own art. My now husband and I could not agree on a song for our first dance so FINAO's DJ seamlessly mixed the two together without skipping a note/beat. We decided to order an Ice Sculpture for our reception and WOW! With all that said Robert kept inside our budget and made sure we were involved throughout the entire planning. INCREDIBLE!

Tracy and Deb 💕❤️ thank you so very much for not only planning but coordinating our wedding day! At first I was just looking for my vendors on my own when I came across hair and makeup I found Traci ‘s business called Makeup and Hair by Traci &co. Not only do they do red carpet ready hair and make up for brides and bridal parties but they also do wedding planning and Day of coordination which made planning my wedding so much easier! I had initially hired a different wedding planner who was starting to really stress me out that is why I took to Wedding Wire to find vendors on my own and I cannot think these two ladies enough! At first I was a little taken aback by the fact that they are able to do the two most important jobs of the day on my wedding day but they killed it !! They started helping me day one which was about 8 to 9 months before my wedding day and found all of the vendors for me scheduled meetings not only did one of them show up to all of my meetings but they assured me weekly that everything was going as planned! The day of my wedding was the best day of my life so far and I could not have done it without the two of them I cannot tell you how grateful we are for all of your help we could not have done this without you guys. I highly recommend “I do “bridal boutique for not only wedding planning and coordinating but they do amazing hair and make up as well! Thank you so much again!!

I got married last summer and Nena helped me with everything! I had an extremely small budget (5k) but I wanted a wedding to remember! She told me about park preserves and we went out to view on in the city. It was gorgeous! The price was amazing. She also helped me find affordable catering, decorations, my dress, cheap suit rentals and a delicious cake (from Mariano's! Who knew??!). Anyway this chick is amazing. She helped me with everything up to the day and even came for day of coordination. It was the happiest day of my life and it would have not been possible without Marshae Blu!

    The entire experience working with 1931 was excellent. Working with the owner made me feel important and all questions were answered respectfully and professionally. Everyone is prompt, talented, and visionary. Weddings are stressful enough but this experience was serious and fun. I LOVED my crystal bouquet and will be shopping again at 1931 Bridal!

      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.
