There are not enough words to describe how amazing Boston Event Diva's is! Do yourself a huge favor and hire them immediately! We used Boston Event Diva's for our flowers and coordination and are beyond thankful for everything Jennifer and Shannon did! From taking me to the flower market to look at flowers, to walking us through every hour and detail of our wedding day, showing us samples of arrangements and centerpieces, and calming our nerves when things got stressful, Jennifer and Shannon went above and beyond! They were there for every step in the planning process, offering insight and expertise - which made our day more amazing than we expected. They executed everything we envisioned, down to the most tiny detail, and if anything went wrong the day of our wedding, I had no idea. You can trust that Jennifer and Shannon will do everything in their power to make sure your wedding day is perfect. They both even offered to get on ladders to hang out bistro lights for our outdoor dinner, with Shannon being several months pregnant! We were so thankful for their guidance, expertise, and friendship during the planning process! You will not find a better company that Boston Event Diva's! I could not imagine planning our wedding without Jennifer and Shannon!

It was such a pleasure to work with John throughout our wedding planning process and ESPECIALLY on the day of our wedding. We would recommend him as one of our top vendors. It is a very close tie in praise between how amazingly good the food was and how professional and prepared his team was. All of the guests enjoyed the meal, which given our last minute changes due to weather, was an amazing improvisation by John to get all of the food out timely and everything was delicious. Picking our menu and doing our tasting was one of the best parts of the planning process and John made it so easy. He had excellent suggestions and was willing to talk through all of our priorities and wants for our day. The final result was a beautifully presented meal that everyone raved about. His team worked so hard the day of our wedding, but multiple guests commented on the positivity and joy they brought to the venue. Everyone was smiling and went above and beyond to provide excellent service. Once we found J&L Catering, it was hard to find a better value for our money for the extent of the services John and his team provided. We would recommend him to anyone in the future for any catering needs.

Belle was amazing! Last minute (very very last min) about 4 days before the wedding, I decided I wanted chairs covers for all my chairs, and a nice decoration for my sweetheart table and a backdrop. Kind of alot for last minute planning, didn't thought I would have time to get all that arrange. I created an account here inquiring for someone to hire to do this. Belle contacted me immediately and made everything so much easier for me, gave me ideas and made me feel secure that everything was going to be alright (even under the stress I was going through that week). I know God placed her in my path and that it was meant to be done by her, she is a blessing! To tell you all this, before I walked into the hall for my reception I didn't have a specific idea of what to expect of everything but I knew it would be very nice, but when I walked into the room everything was BREATHTAKING! I couldn't believe how beautiful and amazing everything looked, it was like a dream! I am sooo happy Belle reached out to me and that she made the decorations for my reception stand out, everything gave complements of how beautiful everything looked! It was so worthy! I would definetly hire her again for another event. Thank you!!! -Mayelin P.

I met with Jen at the Pawtucket Public Library on Wednesday June 22, 2015 and she was outstanding. Jen was very nice, listened to my needs, wants, and concerns. She made the stress of planning a wedding go away, she made me feel comfortable and like I could do this. I will be using her services for my engagement photos and as a wedding planner. I am very pleased with her so far I only had one meeting with her but so far it has been wonderful.

I worked with Soraya for my wedding in July. We had our reception in a beautiful hotel that included a planner, however, hired Soraya to help in addition because of the attention to detail and many decisions required during the wedding planning. I am beyond thrilled with my decision to use SYB event planning! Soraya is extremely thoughtful and has creativity mixed with imagination to make your ideas come to life! I didn't know exactly what I was looking for. She was very patient and helped me put together the most elegant and unique wedding I could've ever asked for. The day of my wedding went so smoothly, and so many guests complimented that the wedding was the most beautiful they have ever been to! If you are looking for a professional, caring, creative, personable and enthusiastic event planner, meet with Soraya. I highly recommend SYB for any party, I will definitely be using her in the future for family events/parties!

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!!

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

My fiancee and I had one simple request to keep our wedding planning and wedding day stress free. Amanda has more than exceeded our expectations. She saved us a lot of money, providing props, design recommendations, averted so many foreseeable crises months before the wedding started. She was flexible with my family's needs, and collaborated with my in-laws in wedding preparations. She ended every call with "Let me know if you can think of anything else you need..." She missed our rehearsal dinner after our rather awful florist messed up our flowers last minute. Amanda was almost like a part of our family, honoring both my needs and my family's, finding peaceful solutions where she could. The wedding turned was like a fairytale. For someone as laidback and almost absent in my wedding planning, Amanda stepped up and turned what I thought was going to be a beautiful day into an extraordinary experience for me and my now husband! Thank you so much!

We had the great pleasure of asking Meredith to plan our first Baby Shower. As we were out of state transplants as the husband/father i got tagged to coordinate. In typical fashion I reached out to someone with Expertise, Meredith. Talk about a god send, she managed all aspect for us, Location, Invitations, menu. It was the hit of the town event and have had our friend years after still talk about it! I entrusted Meredith with everything and she did not disappoint. We have already discussed our 25th wedding anniversary which is still 8 years out.

We literally could not have made a better decision. Shay exceeded our expectations, went above and beyond for us, always had our best interest at heart, and worked so hard to help us plan the best wedding I could have ever imagined. Even our guests noticed how amazing she was. She really felt like our best friend throughout this process and it was obvious that she truly was invested in our happiness. I would extremely highly recommend Mosaic event group to anyone planning a wedding or event. Thank you Shay for making our night a success and we hope to work with you in planning any future event.

    My husband and I hired Theresa as a wedding coordinator after hearing rave reviews from two other couples, and it was the one thing that kept us sane during the wedding planning process! It's obvious that she's an experienced event planner; she has a solution for absolutely everything and, equally importantly, a knack for talking a crazed bride down from the ledge! Our wedding turned out absolutely perfect, rain and all, thanks to TAF Events.

        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.
