Red Carpet Backdrop and Photo Booth services were superior. School events can sometimes be difficult but everything was done professionally and timely. I've also used their services for other events with another organization on a larger scale. I would highly recommend Imaginola!

Mr. Donovan was a pleasure to work with. From the planning stages of setting the date and times to the actual event, he was just a delight. He kept the music going and the crowd was loving it. I look forward to requesting his services in the future.

Choosing Amelie and Uncommon Camellia for our day-of wedding coordination was the SINGLE BEST wedding decision we made during our planning process. Words cannot even begin to describe how wonderful Amelie is, but I will try to summarize it in this review. She is extremely responsive, organized, punctual, detail-oriented, professional, positive, sweet, and she knows her stuff! She thought of details and had plans for things I never even knew I had to think about. A month before the wedding, Amelie took over all communications with the vendors and always kept us in the loop of updates and changes; she took away all the stress that comes with dealing with multiple vendors. She was on top of every detail and I never once worried that she missed anything. She promptly answered every email/text/call we sent her, no matter the day of week or time of day. She addressed every single concerned we had during the planning process and even post wedding. We were worried about rain and she helped us come up with not one, but two different rain plans. We wanted to change the Second Line parade route the day before the wedding - I know, sounds impossible with the permits and police escorts - but she made it happen! There were some complications the day of the wedding, but she handled it without us or any of the guests knowing about it. She took all the stress away and allowed us to enjoy the wedding to its fullest potential. Amelie was such a joy to work with and I cannot imagine pulling off our wedding without her. She really went above and beyond to make our wedding flawless. I don’t know how else to praise her, but if I did, I would! Don’t make the mistake of not hiring Amelie for your wedding coordination!

Chef Chris did a fantastic job from menu planning to preparation. He was always professional. His 6 course meal was superb and he was fun to hang out with for a surprise event for my wife's birthday.

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

    Jacqueline did an incredible job as our "day-of planner." We were so impressed by her professionalism and her determination to make sure our wedding was a success. She ran our ceremony rehearsal expertly, and went to great ends to prepare our wedding party, coordinate vendors, and even bribe a barbecue party that had set up too close to our venue to change locations :) we will cherish the memories that she made possible. I highly recommend her services as a wedding planner.

    I met Deroy at a previous event I attended. He provided great and unique service. His team of servers was on their A game, making sure I had my cup full. If you planned on visiting the Greater Houston Area or cities outside; I recommend Deroy's service. Great interaction and friendly. You will be satisfied.

    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.

    About

    My attention to detail and the personal attention that I give to the bride, groom and their families really stands out from other planners. I make sure that every moment of your wedding is as stress-free, comfortable and memorable for everyone. For instance, I make sure that the mother of the bride is present for the cake cutting. My main goal of the day/night is that you and your family have a wonderful time and create lasting memories.

    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.
