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 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 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.

If you are looking for a wedding planner who will not only help make your vision a reality but will also make the process enjoyable, look no further than Virginia Lionberger! More than two years later I am still being told by our guests (probably over a dozen at this point) that our wedding was the best they’ve ever attended. Virginia is the secret sauce! - Annie and Vonzele

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.
