Words can not even begin to describe how AWESOME Denean's Party by Design is!!! I originally was one of those brides who thought I could do it all myself until I realized I COULDNT! In my search for a decorator and Day of Coordinator I came across Denean's Party By Design. From that first phone call, that first email I was already sold! The professionalism and courtesy that she showed let me know I was on the right path. After our first meeting I quickly ran home and told my fiancé this is the one! Pam, I could tell you thank you a million times and that still wouldn't be enough! Between the décor, the rehearsal, the actual wedding day and all the calls and emails in between you never skipped a beat and always put my mind at ease! I could not have asked for a better group! I have already sung your praises to several friends and co workers to use your services! Some people are in wedding planning for the money but this group I can truly say does it from the heart! I am forever grateful, my wedding was AMAZING thanks to you!! Its been almost a month and everyone still raves about how beautiful and organized it was. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! With Love, The Wilks

I am so happy I chose to go with Jayme. I made the decision late in the game to hire a day of coordinator. I was relieved to find Jayme about a month before our wedding reception and she was great on the day of. I don't know what we would have done without her! Thank you Jayme!

My husband and I are SUPER EXCITED with the outcome and very careful planning of our 10 year "Vow Renewal"!! Planned by Shauna Robinson of 'Brides-to- be Wedding's. Mrs. Robinson came to our home and explained 'exactly' what "Brides to-be'- does', she was also concerned with what our expectation's were for our wedding. We were so impressed with her kindness, her elegance, her organization skills and her ability to take the stress of planning off of my plate! She saved me so much stress!!! Our wedding was Simply Amazing thanks to Shauna! She stayed in contact with all of my vendors, the venue coordinator and anyone else involved in my wedding! I couldn't believe just how organized she was...she took my stress away and assured me that she was going to make sure my wedding was everything we thought it would be, and she delivered!!! I would highly recommend Brides- to- be to everyone" that wants a Awesome, patient Wedding Coordinator! I truly appreciate her work! Awesome, just AWESOME!!!!!!! L. Harvey

Mary did an amazing job as the day-of-coordinator for our wedding. We decided to hire one at the last minute, and I'm so glad we chose Mary. She went above and beyond to make sure everything happened the way we envisioned it (she even insisted on putting together bathroom baskets for the guests, bringing glow sticks for our exit, and lending us her own personal coolers for the bar). She's also really fun to be around, and it's evident that she loves what she does. Thank you!

After I decided to plan a 70th birthday party for my father, I knew I wanted something different other than just a few guests at home. After speaking with the owner of ALD, April, about what I was looking for and what my budget was, she immediately started helping me brainstorm options for locations and vendors to take care of everything from cupcake orders to banners. She even went to visit the restaurant, see the room, and speak to the restaurant event planner before I could make it over to the location. April is super organized and has timelines and deadlines for each step in planning the event and she always returned my calls and emails in a timely manner. When the day of the event arrived she had all of the materials as discussed and decorated the dining room with a beautiful black and gold theme. She provided everything from chair covers and table linens to balloons. Everything went as planned and she stayed around to make sure everything was on track. I'm so glad that I worked with ALD! They created a memorable and unforgettable event.

Amanda and Remembered Events planned my April 22 wedding. She was just perfect for what we needed. I didn't want to stress or do anything the week of my wedding. Everything was on point, organized, and exactly how we had discussed it. I loved the online updates of progress and questions she had. Amanda was so easy to reach by phone or text. We had some issues day of and I didn't even know until after. I couldn't have been happier. -Claire

I needed help pulling all the details for my wedding together and Little Black Book Events was the glue to pulling everything together! Vanessa helped organize all the vendors, the timeline, the coordination, and more. I couldn't have had such a well planned wedding without Little Black Book Events. I definitely would not have been able to enjoy my wedding nearly as much without knowing that Vanessa had everything under control. Little Black Book Events was amazing and I highly recommend them!

I brought We Plan - You Party into my wedding planning towards the end for decorating our space. What I wanted was an extra touch to make my wedding feel like me. They did a great job with the decorating. The communication could have been improved, but overall I am very happy with the job they did.

In April of 2018 I had a please to work with Denise who represents UMBER bride&groom, LLC. She demonstrated incredible organisational skills. In preparation for the wedding she made sure all vendors were notified both by text and email, she provided everyone with a timetable and contact information. I had never been to the venue before but Denise made sure she let me know the details I needed to know for successful setup and was helpful upon my arrival. She provided a smooth transition from ceremony to cocktail hour, and then to the reception. Denise made sure that the guests and vendors were veryhappy. I highly recommend UMBER bride&groom, LLC for her responsibility, organizational skills, promptness and great coordination of every aspect of the event. I look forward to working with her again.

My husband and I hired Floyds DJ Services for our May 13, 2017, ceremony in Woodbridge, Va. Finding a DJ had proven to be my toughest task during the wedding planning phase. . . that is, until Kacey responded to my request for information. She's pleasant, easy to work with and was always responsive. The constant threat of rain for our outdoor ceremony has us wavering on whether we'd be outdoors or move the ceremony inside. Kacey remind flexible as we didn't make the final call until just hours before the ceremony was to start. We were lucky enough to have BOTH Kacey and her husband, DJ Unknown, for our ceremony and reception. He is a GREAT hype man, and together, they read the crowd and played the right mix of old-school jams (as I requested) and current Top 40 Hits (including a ton of songs from my personal playlist suggestion). DJ Kacey even got on the dance floor to lead the crowd into a line dance and help get the party started. Their sound system was super crisp and there wasn't a single glitch! We had selected a final song to be played, and when it came time, DJ Kacey and DJ Unknown surprised us with a PHENOMENAL send off by having our guests line up in a receiving line to end the day. In a word, it was pure magic! Floyds DJ Services is a true example of exceptional quality that doesn't break the bank. I'd recommend them 10 times over! -Kevin G.

Working with Erin was the absolute best decision My Husband and I made when planning our wedding. She listened to everything that we wanted and made our dream wedding come true. Her team was professional and made themselves available throughout the entire planning process. Even on our wedding day they made the events elegant and smooth without any hiccups. Erin has an amazing eye for what she does and I am so thankful that I met her! We started planning our June wedding in January and she was AMAZING!!!!!!!! I was a full time student and worked full time and I didn't have to stress over a wedding because she was so involved and ensured that this process was not a stressful one. I will go to Erin for any and all of my events she definitely has a customer for life!

Stacia was a complete JOY, to work with! She made our special day from start to finish The Best Day Ever! She was accountable, self motivating, very creative, she stayed waaayyyy ahead of schedule, and she really got in tuned with our style, as well as who we are as a couple, to create a PERFECT setting for our Wedding Day. She litterally took all of the stress of the planning process completely away! Her level of expertise about the whole wedding planning process, really put us at ease since I had never done this before. She is a business woman, and an artist! I could go on, and on an on, but the bottom line is I would advise EVERYONE to do yourselves a big favor by letting her make YOUR Wedding "The Best Day Ever!"

We hired Lisa to be our on-site wedding coordinator a month before the big day, and she jumped right in and helped everything run smoothly and efficiently. She worked with the on-site staff to decorate and prepare the venue and she did a great job. Would recommend Lisa to others.

We can not express into words the phenomenon job that Extravagant Affairs did for our wedding on 11/05/2016. From the time that we chose them to handle our catering needs to the very end of our special day, their team handled every detail with the highest level of class and commitment. Our guests are still talking about the excellent food selection. If you are looking for elegance, price affordability, and professionalism, I would definitely recommend them

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.
