Donna. Was. INCREDIBLE. I hired her for our wedding of over 120 people. She was not only a bartender, but literally a hostess. Many people (even my notoriously critical grandmother) commented on how she was everywhere doing everything - making a mean drink, clearing plates, making coffee, everything - and being so kind and pleasant and joyous in the process. Plus she came by to make me (the bride) a plate of food for dinner! She helped me make the list of what I would need, and worked with the drinks and mixers I provided to make even better drinks than I imagined. I requested an additional server to support her which she easily provided, and he was amazing as well. She was worth double the price and I can't recommend her enough.

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!

I love Angie from Blossom and Branch!! She is absolutely the best value for quality, professional work. The event planners I talked to were pushing me towards much larger and a lot more expensive florists- I am so grateful I did some research and found this great little business! My wedding was definitely not over the top (15 table settings, 8 bouquets and boutonnieres and church arrangements) and I could not believe what these bigger florists wanted. Angie was able to quote me less than half of what these other florists were going to charge me. I was worried (like all brides!) that everything was going to be perfect and all I can say is Angie rocked these flowers! All my bouquets were absolutely beautiful and the creativity she put into my table settings made those arrangements stunning. l am going to miss her upbeat attitude as she and I had a blast together planning the exact flowers and colors I wanted and she made it all happen just like how I pictured it. Anyone planning a wedding - and looking to save a couple of bucks!- would be smart to give Angie and Blossom and Branch a shot. Good Luck! Tina P.

I’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with Sarah of Sarah Kathleen Events on several occasions. The first few times were back when she planned my company’s annual conferences. She put together every last detail and took into consideration what the attendees would enjoy. Between group outings to sporting events, team building activities, and menu options for each meal, she put a lot of thought into what we’d like. All throughout the process, she was professional, thorough, and nothing but courteous and considerate to everyone there. Most recently, I worked with her on a wedding that was at my workplace, a local hotel that hosted the ceremony and reception for the happy couple, and she was the wedding planner. Sarah, along with her extremely attentive and equally creative staff (Louis and Loraine), once again used her creative talents and professional intuition and planned a spectacular, elegant party that everyone enjoyed. She worked hard to cater to the bridal party and guests’ needs and also worked in tandem with the hotel staff to make sure everyone was in the know. Overall, I highly recommend Sarah Kathleen Events for the work that they do. Between their work with high-stress corporate events and beautiful, memorable weddings, Sarah and her team are an extremely talented group of individuals that pay attention to what you want and execute that with the utmost professionalism and creativity.

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 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.

Izza and her team were the absolute fantastic to work with! My husband and I hired iMktg Services for full planning services, which entailed everything from monthly in-person check-ins, decorations, guest list, invitations and pretty much everything that you need at your big day. Izza was absolutely incredible at keeping us organized and helping us stick to our schedule. She immediately got to know us as a couple and was able to provide spot on recommendations and advice for all of the thousands of decisions that go into planning a modern christening. If you need a wedding planner, don't even bother looking further! She is one best event planner that will go beyond your expectations. (wink..wink she actually gives a lot of freebies on our event, items and services) What else could you ask for? oh wait, before I forgot, she is young, smart and has a good professional background. Too many to name it all.

I could not speak higher of Escandar Group. A week from our big day, we realized many plans were either unraveling, falling through the cracks, or simply not getting done. Escandar Group came in at the 11th hour to basically plan an entire wedding. To give an idea, our videographer happened to get into a luging accident a couple days prior (not even joking!), our Photo booth idea completely unraveled at the last minute and we found was not going to be an option, among many other last minute things. Emmanuelle helped us make some key decisions, and once those decisions were made, the team just ran with it. Took all the pressure off of us so we could enjoy the day. Escandar Group honestly went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was the best day ever...and they succeeded! So grateful to have had this team on our side. Our wedding day would not have been what it was, without their support.

I cannot say enough good things about Diane! We already had a wedding planner for my daughter's wedding (& she was also fabulous), but needed someone to guide us in getting just what we needed to transform our venue from typical to magical. Diane not only knows the right vendors, but she also knows what works & what doesn't. She has many years of experience and we were able to use her expertise to help make important selections. She was available for several meetings ahead of the wedding. She was there all day ensuring that everything was in place. I learned that she had our backs more than the venue did! Our band director later commented to me that Diane was amazing as she saw her working with the venue personnel. Knowing that Diane was behind the scenes allowed us to walk into that magical space and enjoy a most incredible evening!

    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!

    Matt was our DJ for our wedding October 5th and he did an outstanding job. Prior to the wedding Matt worked with us on selecting ALL the songs we wanted played at our wedding and also worked hard on the songs we wanted played for our first dance. He truly was wonderful to work with! If anyone would like to speak with me personally about his work, please ask Matt for my telephone number and I would gladly talk with you. I promise you that you will not find another DJ that would do a better job. He is the BEST!

    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.

    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!!

    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.
