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!

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!

Professional, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, creative, experienced -- These are all adjectives that describe Michelle. She recently worked with me as my Wedding Planner and I could not have been more pleased with my dream wedding. She was there for me every step of the planning and began to know my tastes very quickly (which made our working together much easier). She is excellent with working with the vendors; keeps in contact with them as needed. I honestly did not have to worry about anything! Her decorating skills are exceptional and she has great ideas to save money... I would use Michelle's services again for any function that required some planning and coordination. -- Rhonda Kole Murfin Glassmeyer

I really enjoyed working with Raina. She really tries to understand what your vision will be. She is very reliable as well. She had multiple meetings with my parents for them to feel comfortable about having a decorator. I would recommend her to any one having wedding in Louisiana.

    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

    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.

    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. I like being the responsible one and making sure everything runs smoothly.

    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.
