Megan was extremely helpful throughout the planning process. On the actual day of the wedding I got countless compliments on the food! Everything that was provided was delicious, fresh, and held up in the heat outside (it was 88 degrees out!) Thank you Megan and everyone else from Now We're Cookin', you helped make our wedding reception go off without a hitch with a perfect price for our 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!

    Erica was very helpful during all of our wedding craziness. She was always prompt at replying to any requests or questions we had. She also made it a point to make it to any meetings we had with vendors. She took on a lot of things that made our lives a lot easier and we had a smooth wedding day! Thank you very much!

    LaBelleVie catered our wedding reception in June. I could not have picked a better place. The food was delicious (we had an upscale style taco bar.) The bar they set up was fantastic! They brought a beer garden indoors, with an amazing assortment of cocktails.(we married in an old farm building so it really helped classy up the place)Chris Sutton and her staff worked with me on every thought or concern I may have had. They all really went above and beyond to make sure I had the most perfect wedding reception. I even used their beautifully decorated bar in Aledo IL. to take some of my wedding photos in.

    I had 6 curtain panels that needed to be hemmed. Joan came to the house and took the time to pin each one to ensure a good fit. I had my drapes back quickly and they look fantastic! Joan is great to work with.

    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.
