I hired Donna and her son for a wedding of 115 people. Absolutely fantastic!! Set up very quickly and helped break down at the end of the night. Most importantly, especially at a wedding, there were no problems with people getting over served. Great job, would definatley hire again.

Wedding Planner Full Service I couldn't have better things to say about working with Rick and Special Occasion Events . We booked a full wedding planning package and MC. And Throughout the planning process, Valerie and Rick were attentive, organized and resourceful. Valerie helped to alleviate any additional stress leading up to the wedding by providing helpful tips and resources that kept me and my husband on track for our big day. She made the wedding planning process so much better. She went out of her way to accommodate us in many occasion . She make sure we were happy with every decision we made about our vendors and work professionally with every vendor. And on our rehearsal day and made sure all of our attendants (and little ones!) knew exactly what they were doing, and made it fun and enjoyable throughout. On our wedding day, I knew I had absolutely nothing to stress about because Valeri and Rick were on it. Every little detail, every step of the way. I couldn't have asked for a better planner and MC and am so grateful that we picked Special Occasion Events to help us throughout our wedding planning. I would recommend Special Occasion Events to absolutely anyone!

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.

My boyfriend (now fiancé) and I started taking lessons with Steve after getting a deal through LivingSocial. We thought it was something we'd try once, for fun. But one lesson with Steve and we were hooked! Steve is one of the most charismatic people I've ever met. His teaching style is unique and engaging. He does great teaching both members of a couple as individuals, especially if they have very different skill levels, but then also helps them learn how to dance together. He makes the process of learning to dance a lot of fun- I swear sometimes he's tricked my fiancé into learning something new. We can't wait for him to help us plan our wedding dance! (Not saying it was the dance lessons that got my boyfriend to pop the question, just saying all the time spent learning something new together certainly didn't hurt!) We've been dancing at Get on the Floor for almost a year now, and we'll be dancing for years to come, thanks to Steve!

Allana was so professional and organized. She made my son and daughter-in-law's wedding day so special. From the rehearsal to the wedding she managed to keep everyone in check and I know that wasn't easy. Joe and Betsy said the evening was perfect and couldn't have done it without you. I would definitely recommend Allana to anyone looking for a wedding planner in the future.

My daughter got married in 2015 and Annalisa was our go to gal..she helped us out with everything and listened to my daughter's ideas and made them happen. Phantom of the opera was her theme! Bella events helped answer questions and got the wedding venue to do what was expected and her day was special. She made the bride's/bridal party bouquets. Centerpieces and many extras added. Would highly recommend her again.

I hired Daniela to do our makeup and hair at my wedding. She is always so professional and super easy to work with. She is a real deal and a total package as she does hair and makeup which made my life so easy as you all know how hectic it is to plan a wedding yourself. I really appreciated Daniela for her enthusiasm where she was willing to stay to help out with pictures/posing, fixing my veil and dresses. She goes above and beyond to make sure that you are happy with the work and look & feel stunning as you should on your wedding day!

Joanna was the best florist I've worked with. From the start she was so personable. We met at Starbucks and spent over an hour looking at photos,clippings and ideas. She has a wealth of knowledge on every flower and will work with any idea you can imagine. Joanna was so flexible with my last minute changes, and even offered to help set things up for me at the wedding. I will recommend her whole heartedly and know if you pick this company you will not have 1 ounce of regret. My wedding was this weekend and I'm still staring at my bouquet… Wish it could be frozen in time it is the most beautiful thing!

    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.
