I am planning my wedding from Wisconsin to be married in New Orleans and they have been so very helpful. I can't express how thankful I am for all of their patience and support and ideas! I would use them if I ever need catering again!

How does any bride do it without professional, day-of help?!?! CS Events gave me a whole team that made me feel incredibly special as a bride. Planning a wedding out-of-state, CS Events made sure that all my vendors had been contacted and knew who to call for trouble... Not the Bride!! Loved this team!

Living in Florida and planning a wedding in New Orleans, we knew we would need the help of a planner local to the area. During a visit we met Delia and before even hiring her she took us to a few locations to take advantage of our time there and it allowed us to see her "CHIC" style. It has been almost a year since we hired her and though we still haven't gotten to the big day, I know her help and resources have made the difference. Personally, I appreciated that she always makes herself available for calls, even to just bounce ideas around. Professionally, she knows her stuff! She learns what you like and finds you options that suit your style and budget. She knows what you need to handle and when. I needed that because there's details and timelines that I would not know. She also knows how to handle vendors as she's done so for quite some time. All around, it's been great having her and I'm anxiously looking forward for all the hard work to come together on our wedding day. Thanks Delia!

When planning a wedding, you know all the details that go into it but what you don’t realize is that all those little details, like remembering to wear your garter or getting all of the favors to your venue or gathering your bridal party and family for pictures, come on the day of the wedding and it can really make it where you can’t focus on actually enjoying it! Lucky for me, I had Adrienne, who made it to where I didn’t have to think about a single thing on my wedding day! I had the best day of my life that day and it was all thanks to her! She is not only a phenomenal wedding coordinator, she is so genuine and happy to be a part of making the most important day of your life perfect! Adrienne had listened to what I wanted and needed for my wedding, she anticipated what I didn’t even think of and she exceeded my expectations!

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!

I wanted to take a week or two before putting my thoughts down, to clear away the wedding-high and simply be able to focus on doing justice to this amazing lady! We got married on February 18th, 2017. What I have come to realize, is that I can't possibly express the utmost satisfaction and joy that Casey brought to our lives. Finding Casey was an absolute fluke. We knew that we wanted to elope to NOLA, but given neither of us had ever been there, I was at a loss on how to plan our perfect day. In utter frustration one night, I Googled "wedding planners NOLA" and Thumbtack popped up. I had never even heard of this website, let alone the fact that I don't trust a lot of online sites that I am not familiar with. I figured I had nothing to lose and completed the initial questionnaire. Casey responded right away and the first thing that caught my attention was her profile pick. Absurd, I am sure you are thinking, but she just seemed lovely. She had a professional and yet relaxed appearance and I instantly thought, this could work. She provided me with her initial information and what she could do for me. Still not convinced, I messaged her back and gave her a bit more information about what we were thinking. Casey immediately started giving me options, ideas, locations, direction... and I hadn't even hired her yet! My fiance and I debated her price and whether we wanted to extend the extra money that we hadn't budgeted for. In the end, I knew I needed that hands-on approach and knowledge that Casey could provide and we took the plunge. Best. Decision. Ever! Casey quickly got to work and started sending me venue options. She knew our budget and not once did she stray from that number. She found us every possible deal/break/discount and even bartered on our behalf. I am sure this woman spent hours travelling around to give us every option available, including photos! She also scoured AirBNB and provided us with several options for places to stay. She recommended services for hair and make-up, florists, where to have our wedding meal, and photographers. Every single service that I booked was on her recommendation. Each service was performed flawlessly, professionally and absolutely met my expectations. I can't even fathom the amount of time and effort Casey put into planning our day. Not only was Casey and amazing Wedding Planner, she became our decorator (she even hand made my bouquet using artificial flowers so I could bring it home with me), our event planner (provided a 17 page PDF with a list of absolutely everything to see and do in NOLA), our wedding officiant (as we are not religious people and she is ordained to perform ceremonies, she wrote and performed a ceremony completely tailored to us!), our driver (her and her husband got us back to where we were staying after the ceremony... which took 2 hours given the traffic/people in town for Mardi Gras and the NBA All-Star Game!) and even a personal counselor. I was struggling with personal issues and when I happened to mention this to Casey she extended the invite to call her at any time, to discuss wedding issues or anything else I was struggling with. This was so far beyond the scope of what we had hired her for. Who does all of that?!? Casey does. Casey wrote an amazing ceremony for us... she listened to everything that we told her and custom tailored the ceremony to suit who we are and our story. She didn't just write "about us", she got to know us and understand who we are as a couple. It was truly unbelievable. I could go on and on... as these are just a few of the things that Casey did. I really can not say enough about this amazing woman. She is truly one of a kind and is the most thoughtful, considerate, caring and honest individual I have met in a really long time. You would be blessed to have Casey working with you on the most important day of your lives. Take a chance on her, because I guarantee she will not disappoint. Casey... from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you. You made our special day even more so by having you and Ed there. We literally could not have done this without you and you will forever hold a special place in our hearts. NOLA has not seen the last of us and we can't wait to come back and hopefully sit down for drinks to celebrate all that you did for us!

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.

Christy Romano with R&R Event Specialists was the day of wedding coordinator for my wedding, November 5, 2016. Our wedding was in New Orleans and our venue had a very helpful onsite coordinator. However, two weeks prior to the wedding I panicked and was concerned that we needed additional day of support. I found Christy via Thumbtack. Her quick reply and eagerness to communicate with me was very refreshing. After speaking to her on the phone and going through our vision for the wedding with her, I felt instantly better (and that was just over the phone!) We made a quick decision to hire her and I can honestly say, it was one of the best wedding planning decisions that I made! Within the week, I sent, at Christy’s request, a day of timeline, pictures of our décor and how I envisioned it being laid out, a list of special people at the wedding, bridal party, etc. Her amazing communication skills and want for detailed information were definitely a plus and helped relax me in the week leading up to the big day. Christy met with myself, our venue coordinator, my mother and my groom the morning before the wedding. We had a sit down meeting onsite and went through our entire comprehensive timeline. We did a walkthrough of the venue and made our expectations and needs clear. Christy was on the ball and had great questions about things we hadn’t even considered, as well as suggestions. She was even thoughtful enough to bring me a bridal emergency kit for the next day. The day of the wedding went exactly as I had hoped. Once Christy arrived, I spent 20 minutes with her getting her everything she would need for decorating. After that, I was left to enjoy the morning drinking champagne and getting ready with my bridesmaids and family. Christy periodically checked in throughout the day to see if we needed anything and did a great job coordinating with our arriving vendors, so that myself or my mother didn’t have to. Our day was stressfree and just what I had hoped for. She helped to keep us on schedule (which was a bit tricky as we had many activities throughout the day: Firsty look, family photos, bridal party photos, bridals, cocktail hour, second line, reception, etc – all of which required movement around the French Quarter). And followed our detailed timeline to the letter (we had some décor transitions we wanted done during our Second Line and they went perfectly). During the wedding itself, Christy was there when I needed her and made herself very available to myself, my groom and my mother. We had Christy stay 30 minutes until after the end of our reception to complete the breakdown of wedding. This allowed all of my family to transition easily to the after party bar we had chosen without having to do any cleanup. The biggest surprise we had was our arrival to our bridal suite after the wedding. Christy decorated our suite beautifully. Our suite was filled with flowers , our 2nd line umbrellas, candles, etc. She even had copies of our vows placed out for us. She left us a ton of cake and leftovers (which of course we devoured immediately). How she had the time to perfect all the details in our suite and throughout the wedding, I will never know. She greatly exceeded our expectations and I would 100% recommend her for any event coordination. Christy is professional, thoughtful and excellent at her job. My fiancé and I a vision for our wedding, but I let Christy use her creative skills to execute, and she did it fantastically! Hiring R&R Event Specialists for your wedding is a must do!

    My husband and I are from Arizona and when we found out that Evermore Weddings and Events were able to fly out and help plan the wedding we were amazed!!!. They are an amazing couple who would literally do anything to make your day the best day ever. They are very professional and handled our entire planning process with complete dedication and grace. They have a design background and impeccable taste, which enabled them to fully grasp our vision and execute it to perfection on our day. Our wedding could not have been more perfect. Not one thing went wrong. The team they pulled together (and vendors they recommended that we hired) worked together beautifully. We were able to relax and enjoy our day completely while CJ and Dominick set up the ceremony and reception areas executing our vision exactly how we pictured it. CJ has incredible taste and asked us to trust her that day. We felt so comfortable letting them do their job- there was nothing we were worried about. It was seriously gorgeous. It really isn’t easy to pull together my wedding the way CJ and Dominick did and I could not imagine what it would have been like without them. Evermore Weddings and Events are an incredible value for the services it provided and I could not recommend CJ and Dominick enough. Great Job you guys! We

    Tiffany is absolutely incredible! I actually found her on Wedding.com then I noticed she had a Weddingwire. I loved her work on Wedding.com then as I continued our Wedding planning I saw her again on Weddingwire. I knew it was a sign! So I hurried up and booked her. She is an amazing photographer but also just an all around great person. She was so much fun to work with and was always so professional. She made sure the job got done but was so kind the entire time. Her and her assistant are both really great and we are so thankful that we picked her as our wedding photographer. She made the entire experience so enjoyable! Our pictures came out just perfect! Although I did not book thru Thumbtack I just wanted to share my experience with her everywhere she is. Thanks again Tiffany. We will be contacting you for Family photos next! xoxo Jamie & Jacob

    "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!

    In addition to a catering professional, Dianne gave us information about cutting edge trends. Her passion for perfection, bubbly personality, and creative flair and ease to work with because in addition to catering she is a certified wedding planner made me feel comfortable she will deliver the wedding of our dreams. Not only is her team doing our food and beverage she has graciously agreed to go above and beyond and be our wedding coordinator at no extra charge. She had great ideas for how to break our menu up and serve late night sliders on our budget. Unbelievable!

    Stephanie was excellent the moment I found her on Thumbtack. She was very friendly and eager to help my big day become a reality. She was very communicative and professional. Highly recommend to anyone looking to have helping hands planning and implementing their event. She also had local suggestions which were a big help as an outsider trying to plan a destination wedding.

    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.
