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!

Blossom & Branch Designs (Angie) was by far my favorite vendor to work with throughout the whole wedding planning process! My flowers were beautiful, thriving & totally affordable! I searched far & wide to find a floral & event designer that could meet my needs & budget & Angie &B her team totally delivered! I got one huge lovely bouquet for myself, awesome corsages & boutonnieres for the wedding party. sixteen guest table arrangements (mixed styles) & two last minute flower crowns for my flower girls that made me a tiny bit jealous! I also got some single stem flowers to place in my hair that were gorgeous! Have you ever talked with someone you've never met & they just understood you? That is what is was like to talk to Angie. She just "got" me, like we have been friends for years. She picked out my favorite bouquet & corsage from my Pinterest board & made wonderful suggestions to add color & dimension to all the flowers. She was able to incorporate ribbon I provided in the colors of our wedding too & made everything so creatively & elegantly done! Everything was fresh & beautiful & lasted all day in the unusual hot September heat. Angie explained every item in my quote & why things cost the way the do which was incredibly helpful & reassured me that I was making the right decision. Contract & payments were straightforward & pickup was a breeze. I also used her and her team as my Day-Of-Coordinator to make sure everything goes smoothly with all vendors because I trusted her and her staff so much. Everything was perfect! I Love Blossom & Branch Designs! I highly recommend them and will be using them for all of my floral/event needs in the future!

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!!

Vibrant Moments is absolutely divine! As I began my quest to find a planner, I wanted to find a person who could execute my vision with ease, passion, and undeniable professionalism. Above all, I wanted chemistry ! My desire was to find a person of robust experience and a distinct ability to be in my head , and my heart, when it came down to decision making .Shay Gordon and her team over delivered! They are nothing short of MAGICAL!!! The women of Vibrant Moments will blow you away, period .My experience turned out to be quite unique.I didn't get married.Weeks before the wedding, my fiancé and I called it off.I bet you were not expecting that? Shay and her team came through like a storm and helped me handle contracts, payments and everything else that comes with a wedding that doesn't happen .She helped me mend unfinished business with vendors and played a critical role in helping me mend a broken heart.Its easy to review a company where everything goes to plan. What happens in moments of controversy ? That's when true professionals show up and make life easy ! Shay, I am forever grateful to you and Bri. .You are the ultimate wedding planner and I look forward to working with again ! Wink !

Jessica did a great job with our day of wedding preparation. She was able to take what we envisioned for our center pieces, sweet table and guest book table; and bring them to life. She was a huge help because it took a lot of stress off our families since we didn't have to worry about getting our hall set up the day of the wedding.

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.

I had a great time working with Dana for my July 2017 wedding at Salvage One and would highly recommend her as a day-of coordinator. Since she worked at Salvage One, she knew the venue well and knew what would work and what wouldn't. She helped me fine tune the details for the day-of activities and helped set up all my DIY decor. She made sure everything ran smoothly the day of so that my family or I wouldn't have to worry about a thing. I was able to relax and enjoy my wedding. Thanks, Dana!

Natalie was amazing! There were so many moving pieces at my wedding, and Natalie was the glue that held it all together. I was able to tell my family/bridal party if they had questions, or stumbled on an issue at the wedding, to talk to Natalie, and she would address it. The best part was, I didn't have to worry about every little detail the day-of. We met up prior to the wedding and went through the day's itinerary, including set-up, the actual wedding, and teardown. She even went above and beyond, and cleaned up the bridal suite at the end of the night, which looked like a tornado hit it. I could count on her to coordinate with the florist, caterer, venue, etc, and the wedding turned out amazing. Completely worth it, so the bride and groom can enjoy the big day!

Best event planner I have ever met! So happy to have her plan any event because I know I won’t have to worry about anything. Katelyn pays such close attention to details!!!! I can’t wait to use her for my next event!

I am not even remotely close to being a party planner type. For me, some paper plates, a few balloons and a tablecloth and we're all good! But when I wanted to throw a SUPERB Christmas party for my developmentally disabled brother and his housemates, there was nowhere else to turn! Point of Elegance was right on point, making the party one that continues to be talked about several months later! Their attention to detail and their passion to make each party it's own unique event is unmatched and truly made that special day even more special than I ever would have imagined! I have already decided that POE will forever be my go to to get the party started. Everyone else does events! They do EXCELLENCE!

      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.
