Gladys officiated our wedding with 6 days notice and it was everything we needed it to be! Gladys was more than excited to meet with us beforehand in our limited time to get to know us a bit before the wedding and learn about our relationship. When it came to the day of the wedding, Gladys was professional, warm, and made everyone feel welcome. We loved having a ceremony conducted in both Spanish and English, Gladys did a great job making both parts of the family feel included in the small beautiful ceremony we had. Our wedding was special, unique , beautiful and intimate. It could not have been all that it was without Glayds officiating.

Valen was awesome. I booked her five days before my wedding and she responded right away. I was a little bit nervous to have somebody do my make up who I haven't done a trial with but after seeing the dynamic at work that She does I knew I had nothing to worry about and boy was I right! She made me look so beautiful for my wedding, I am so appreciative. She is talented and made me feel beautiful. Thank you so much!

Jennifer was our day of coordinator for our May 30th, 2015 wedding. In the month leading up to the wedding she helped me stay focused and on task. She kept all the vendors in the loop and went above and beyond to make sure I was prepared for the most amazing day of my life. I do not know how I could have done it without her and Shannon. Both these women encouraged my vision and worked tirelessly to ensure my dream wedding came to fruition. I was impressed by the teams' high level of professionalism and creative mindset. She gave me crucial tips and pointers on how to improve the quality reception. Jennifer was always on time and settled for nothing but quality performance and service from all the vendors involved. I would recommend Jennifer to anyone and everyone 10 times over. Hiring Jennifer was the best decision I made during my wedding planning process I wish I found her and brought her on earlier. If you are looking for a qualified professional who will have your best interest in mind look no further. You will find this and more in Jennifer and her team.

John was excellent to work with! Even though we had unusual restrictions from our wedding venue, John designed and delivered a perfect menu! His food is delicious and his advice is honest and invaluable. We also had a few vegan guests at our wedding, and John took the challenge in stride. We had rave reviews about the food. He made sure we (bride and groom) got a chance to eat. We can't thank him enough!

Overall I was very happy with how Classique Impressions Decor stepped up to the plate 4 weeks before my wedding!!! We had some trouble with our previous decorator, but I was very impressed with Belle's flexibility and professional responses!!! She was very easy to work with and I am happy to have had them decorate my reception. The only downfall is I wish I would've been able to work with them sooner (no fault of theirs!!!) so that we REALLY could have made my wedding come to life even more than it did!!!! Overall they did a FANTASTIC job with the time they had and I would recommend them to anyone!!!

Carolina, Carlos and their team were awesome! They arrived a little earlier than expected which was great because I saw a couple reviews that said they were late or didn't show up at all. From start to finish they were friendly and professional. My girls and I all got our hair and make up done just how we wanted it for my wedding on 10/6/17.

I found Malone Catering on Thumbtack while assisting my son to find a caterer for his wedding. When I first saw the menus and prices I really thought I had to be misunderstanding, His prices are so reasonable that I could not believe he was in any way related to other wedding caterers. It seems that all wedding services have a 4X markup and we really needed to stay within a very frugal budget. I called Chef Marty and found him to be very easy to work with and very accommodating and I sent his info to my son immediately. The wedding last Sunday at Camp Kiwanee was beautiful and the guests raved about the delicious food. We had requested a buffet style and Marty and his staff did the serving. Absolutely wonderful. And I cannot say enough about his staff. They were so unobtrusive I never noticed them clearing after dinner but they did an incredible job. And every one of them was friendly and helpful and seemed happy to be there. I know my son and is new wife were extremely pleased with Malone Catering. We will not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a quality caterer at a reasonable price.

Michelle did my makeup and hair for my wedding a few weeks ago. She came early to the hotel where we were staying at. She made me feel comfortable and relaxed. There was a lot going on and Michelle totally just went with the flow. She did an amazing job on my look!! I could not have been happier with how I looked. As a former professional ballet dancer, I’ve had lots of experience wearing makeup all sorts of ways but I’ve never felt as beautiful as I did on my wedding day. Thank you so much Michelle!!! 💞

Khushboo was fabulous! I wanted to have my make up done for a friends wedding since it was outside and I wanted my makeup to last all night. This makeup application did not disappoint! Khushboo used airbrush, applied fake lashes and knew what colors to use on my eyes to match my dress (without even seeing the dress). I received compliments throughout the night about how "fresh" my makeup still looked. Thank you Khushboo!

Yvonne Caole (Executive Planner at Unique Melody Events & Design) was the wedding consultant/planner for our daughter’s wedding. I can’t say enough about Yvonne’s expertise in the wedding planning field. She went above and beyond in every way possible to make our wedding day just what we dreamed of. She is absolutely AMAZING: professional, helpful, knowledgeable, flexible and very accessible. The entire planning process was as smooth as possible from the day we met Yvonne to the wedding day. She quickly and efficiently handled every detail throughout the year of planning our wedding. She was very knowledgeable in all aspects of the planning process. She returned our phone calls and emails very promptly. She made the day of our wedding run smoothly, and as a result, we were able to enjoy every single moment of our daughter’s beautiful wedding day. Yvonne Caole was priceless!

From the moment we had contact with one another until the day of my wedding reception, Seas the Moment went above and beyond. The decor was beautiful. Her responses to my emails were immediate and her attention to detail was flawless. I feel like I have gained a friend. She listened to all of my requests and she also accommodated any last minute changes I made. I would give her a 10 out of 10 all day, everyday. I am very critical of events or parties I throw and I am pleased to say that I would work with her again in a heart beat!!

Ashley was very kind , she did my makeup for a friends wedding and while I’m not accustomed to full coverage makeup I was happy to see that I looked very natural. She was very positive throughout the makeup application and emphasized that her work was just accentuating my attributions. Be prepared to feel fierce and empowered.

Kelly did the day of coordination for my wedding, and all the pre-work to prepare for the day. She helped find additional staff, suggest vendors, and essentially anything I asked of her. Kelly was truly amazing and saved my wedding in so many ways! From the moment I hired Kelly, she gave me peace of mind and assurance that everything will be perfect. There is a lot of effort and coordination that goes into making a wedding, Kelly was right there with me along the way. As somebody who has orchestrated many events, she gave thoughtful suggestions to ensure my event was planned perfectly. She was always in contact, answered all my emails promptly, and calmed every worry and question I had prior to my wedding. She went over my plan and wishes in great detail to ensure she knew exactly what I wanted and how I wanted everything. The day of she was a wedding saver. I got everything I planned executed as requested and the event ran without any issues (at least none I was award of), Kelly did that great of a job. I spent my wedding day dancing, enjoying the wedding I dreamed of, and visiting my family and friends, while Kelly worked extremely hard to ensure everything went as planned. She did an outstanding job and my wedding day was beyond my expectations. Thank you Kelly for everything that you did and all the things I don't know about, you were truly one of the best decisions I made during my wedding planning!

Everyone needs the Professional Maid of Honor at their wedding or event! Katelynn took initiative in so many ways before and on the day of my wedding. Leading up to the event, Katelynn was a great listener. She heard and understood what I envisioned for the day when other people didn't, she helped me think thorough back up plans in case of rain, and when the day came she coordinated everything seamlessly. It's true what everyone says, your wedding day flys by! Having Katelynn there allowed my husband and I to spend more time chatting with our guests. While we were enjoying ourselves, Katelynn made sure the day flowed as planned. She started the transition from cocktail hour to dinner, made sure our speakers were ready to give their toasts, transitioned us into the dance hall after dinner, and so much more. I could go on forever about all the helpful things Katelynn did on our wedding day. What I loved most about working with her was her fun and positive attitude. She took on every change or task without hesitation. Any stress or worry we had about the wedding day running smoothly disappeared once we found and talked with Katelynn. I would recommend The Professional Maid of Honor to anyone and everyone! You will not be disappointed when you hire Katelynn. She will go above and beyond to make sure your event or wedding day is everything you hoped it would be. Kristen & Matt Talbot Wellfleet Wedding May 13, 2017

Phedorah of POMP is Amazing! As a stressed and frazzled bride, I booked POMP just a few weeks before my wedding to handle the day of coordination and Phedorah went above and beyond to ease my fears. Everything from late night/early morning check-ins to making sure I ate breakfast on the big day was thoughtfully and professionally executed by Phedorah. I would highly recommend POMP and it's services!

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.
