Pat's assistance with pre-planning was so valuable! Her suggestions helped the entire event go smoothly. Thanks to the pre-marital conversations with her she was able to craft a ceremony that was professional, yet included warmth and humor, making it very personal to us. With Pati's assistance our wedding was all we hoped it would be-and more!

Thank you so much Mr. Ellis! We had a small wedding ceremony with pastor Ellis, and it was perfect! Couldn't be more grateful for pastor Ellis providing such a wonderful ceremony.

    Christina provided the most professional and helpful support as our "Day of Wedding Coordinator" imaginable for my Daughters wedding. Christina helped provide fantastic input during the planning so everyone was on one page, and during the wedding day she made sure that all the details were handled. She took care of all the normal problems that would come up when you host 200 people! My wife, daughter, new husband and I with all of our families were completely free to have fun, enjoy the day and the memories being created. I highly recommend you engage Christina to your event or wedding. Her experience and leadership is exceptional!


    My passion is a vision and setting it into motion. I love watching some people look beautiful and have a memorable time.

    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.
