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!

I co-hosted a holiday cocktail party. I did want to have to stress about or have time to worry about the food and set up. Christopher Schlumbrecht took care of everything. He helped with the food selection and was very patient and accommodating when I made changes. The food was delivered and set up for the party. The food was delicious. I would recommend CS Events to anyone who is planning an event.

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.

This is a follow up review after the event as promised. My husband 50th Birthday Extravaganza was November 20,2015. The job Michelle did was breath taking. The atmosphere felt magical. The party guests were swept away with the richness and quality of designs. The party lived up to it's name ' Extravaganza" thanks to Michelle Norwood. Michelle is the best in the business and I would highly recommend her for planning any event.

Amy and I have met to discuss the needs of my cats. She was timely, professional and very caring. She took notes on the particulars of my situation and held her schedule open for my needs. I will be sure to update the community after completion of her first job.

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

      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.

      Ashley was amazing! She planned my baby shower and I don't think I could have done it without her! She was professional, organized, and had amazing ideas to add to the overall aesthetic of the shower. She was also extremely dependable, responsive, and punctual. I would recommend her for any 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.
