We hired Kirby for day of coordination, and I am so thankful that we had her. Miranda, Kirby, and I had met before and created a timeline, and I was able to ask many questions, email them both, and depend on them to confirm details of the wedding with all the vendors. The wedding day was rainy, and that made everything much more difficult for Kirby. But she helped set up the rain back up plan for the ceremony, listened to what I wanted, worked closely with the photographer, diverted questions, and helped make sure that everything went smoothly despite nothing going like our original plan. She did all that- plus much more that I probably don't even realize, as the bride, she kept me pretty well out of it so I could enjoy my special day. We couldn't have done it without her.

Nothing will ever take away all the stress of planning a wedding, but working with Latasha came close. She went above and beyond and was absolutely tremendous to work with. Everything went much more smoothly with Latasha's help.

Leanne was great! Even though we gave her very short notice, she got the linens pressed and ready, and provided great service for our wedding!

Dan, from Party to Go, was a breath of fresh aid. He was thorough before the event and it caused the whole evening to go without one problem. He played music that young and old enjoyed because I had a mixed crowd of different ages. He took requests and I barely knew he was there because everything went so smoothly. He had a wonderful light show that added a LOT to the evening too. I had professional musicians attending the event that told us that the music was the best mix of music both during the dinner and during the dancing that they had ever witnessed at a wedding. Sooooo many people told us that it was the most fun wedding they'd been to. He was really good, a gentleman, professional, and fun...all wrapped up into one. He made our daughter's wedding spectacular. I highly recommend his services. He was really the most professional DJ I've ever worked with. Thanks Dan

Sophie Mueller is an absolute dream to work with! Not only does she have some amazing ideas, she's also very open to other ideas while staying within requested budget. She decorated a cupcake table for my wedding and it was more than I could ever ask for. It was SO nice because I gave her a budget, colors, and the theme of the wedding and she ran with it. As a bride planning a wedding, it was nice having Sophie on the team because I knew the cupcake table was going to be done perfectly. She was SUPER friendly and always had a smile on her face. I would recommend Sophie to anyone who is looking for decoration/event planning ideas. Thanks again for making my big day even more special Sophie!

I had a day of wedding service only but she did everything I asked of her, was on time, friendly. Made sure my wedding reception hall was set up the way I wanted it. She even had my slideshow set up so guests could view it as we were having couple photos taken .

Working with April and Chris was great. They listened to what we wanted and brought everything to life beautifully. They were very easy to keep in contact with and were very flexible to any changes we requested. They made planning a wedding easy and as stress free as they possibly could. On the big day everything went smooth! We started a little late, but that was my husband's fault, not theirs lol. But even as I was stressing about my husband showing up an hour late to the venue, they made sure everything was as it should be! Everything turned out beautiful and everyone had a great time!

Sally was great she is very talented! She was our ceremony coordinator as well. Wedding went smoothly despite of the rain fall, her assistant was very helpful too. Some of the flowers did fall out from the bride's bouquet and wrist corsages. I think weather had something to do with that it was bad out the whole time. I would recommend her! The Bride loved her bouquet, most important.

June performed our wedding ceremony in October 2016 and it was a wonderful experience working with her. Although I knew her on a personal level beforehand, I was still very impressed with her professionalism and the level of respect she showed towards our ceremony. She drafted unique ideas and strived to always fit the program to us, rather than directing us towards options that didn't feel quite right. She went above and beyond to make sure small details did not get overlooked and throughout the overwhelming process of planning a wedding, she was a calm and steady voice that reassured us that our big day would be perfect. And it was! Thank you June!

Marcus did a fantastic job DJing our wedding. Music choices were great! He got set up and torn down quickly. We were able to book him two weeks before our wedding, which was on a holiday even. He stayed an hour longer than he normally does, and he was super affordable. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a DJ.

I hired Linda to do our wedding reception. After telling her what "look" I was going for, Linda took the idea and ran with it. When I walked into the reception hall, I saw everything exactly as I had pictured it in my head. It was like she could read my mind! Her work is thorough, detail-oriented, and BEAUTIFUL! I would recommend Linda for any event!

    We used Marian and Allie as Day Of Coordinators for our daughter's wedding at The Elms Hotel this summer. We were planning the wedding from out of town and Marian was very easy to work with. They are very familiar with the venue and the area so that was an added benefit. They made the final contact with our vendors and asked just the right questions to make our vision come to life. Allie did a wonderful job coordinating the rehearsal. She was organized, patient and open to ideas. She prepared a detailed timeline for the wedding day and it all ran like clockwork. Most importantly Marian and Allie gave us the time to be fully present during the wedding day. I was comfortable to turn everything over to them and just soak in the moments of our daughter’s wedding. That in itself is invaluable!

    We had a great experience with “Your Day, Your Way!” My daughter got married on June 6, 2015, and Paula and Freedom were there to help every step of the way. Paula was my creative genius who helped with décor ideas for the church and reception site. She created beautiful runners for the aisle as well as stunning pew bows … and the arch, Oh! It was magnificent! Freedom was my savior organizing and decorating before the reception and then during the reception, making sure that everything was taken care of so I didn’t have to worry about the details and could enjoy the evening. These two pros were so easy to work with and truly wanted to make sure that my daughter’s wedding day was done “Her Way”! The evening went off without a hitch and I must thank “Your Day, Your Way.” They’re the greatest!!

    I loved everything about the day and was so appreciative of Marlayna and her team. The day went by so fast I'm sure I would've missed something. We had 3 different locations and so many vendors...it really was a mess in my head. I wish you were with me the whole way, but I'm thankful you stepped in as wedding coordinator.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
