Christina was amazing! She responded quickly when I had any questions or concerns. She arrived at the ceremony early and was well dressed. We had a very small wedding - only about 20 guests but she still made my wedding a priority and I was able to customize the ceremony exactly how I wanted it! I would definitely recommend her for anyone looking for a reliable and professional officiant!

Kendra is very professional and organized. She has outstanding customer service. She has been providing lunch once a week at my job for a while now! And we have yet to be disappointed. Whatever the her customer wants, they get it prepared with lots of love. THE FOOD IS AWESOME!!!! She is most certainly my ONLY choice for my wedding. GIVE HER A TRY, AND I PROMISE YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!!

    We celebrated our 40th Anniversary Marriage Renewal in July, 2017. Maddie was our wedding planner and she invisioned my dream wedding to tea. She made sure everything was perfect and to my liking. She was professional, happy and upbeat at all times and absolutely lovely to work with. I’d highly recommend Maddie to anyone needing an event planner for a dream wedding, social function or any other event. I left the planning to her and she didn’t disappoint any of my dreams. She made sure everything was done as planned from the food, cash bar, officiant, photographer and DJ. It was the dream wedding I had dreamt of for 40 years.

    I would recommend anyone to Cosi Bella Studios. Victoria the makeup artist is down to earth, caring, and really honest about feedback she gives to you. Very personable and on time. She traveled from Baton Rouge to New Orleans where my wedding took place. Victoria and her team made me feel very comfortable and at ease. Her pricing is reasonable with the makeup industry. I had a good experience from beginning to end. She responds very quick to emails and is very detailed oriented. Highly recommend Cosi Bella Studio to everyone.

    "Above and Beyond" is truly the first thing that comes to mind about Rhonda Anders. As our wedding was on a very tight budget, we tried to save money anywhere we could, and she was extremely reasonable and within our budget. She also couldn't have been more understanding about what i wanted and needed...and even better, we could just tell she was working from a "good place", and just wanted us to be happy. We were married at the Degas House in New Orleans, and she arrived over a half-hour early, and didn't hesitate to ask if she could lend any last minute help...again, I could tell that she wanted to make sure we were in a "happy place" and ready to exchange vows....which is something so easily forgotten on your wedding day...the ability to relax, focus and realize that it's one of the most special days in your life! In the hurry, i forgot "something borrowed" and she rushed to fill the order :) Thank you for everything. Our day ran so much more smooth because of you. We truly appreciated it Rhonda. We would most definitely recommend her to any bride or couple getting married!

    Tonga surpassed every expectation we had! We compared Tonga with one of the major florist companies in Baton Rouge, decided to go with Tonga and we don't regret it for a second! She's flexible, reliable, and an incredibly talented florist. I recommend her to anyone for their wedding, as she did such a beautiful job on ours. Thank you Tonga!!

    When I came to Alisha she was very friendly, and immediately capture my vision. From start to finish she was there I didnt have to call her for anything. I came to see my flowers that came out beautiful. The only thing I had to do is show up on the day of my wedding, she took the load of this bride back...We also developed a bound that I can call her and she will answer any question.... I send all my friends and potential brides to you Lisha you the best...

      A Touch of Elegance did the decorating, catering, flowers, and overall planning for my wedding in March 2014. They did an absolutely fabulous job. They really took the stress out of the planning. I felt like Marsh went the extra mile to make my day perfect. The flowers and hall were breathtakingly gorgeous. The food was phenomenal. All of my guest raved on every aspect of the reception. I would definitely use this company again and recommend to anyone needed a special "touch of elegance" for their event.

      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.
