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.

Classique Impressions did a MARVELOUS job decorating for my sisters wedding. After a last minute fiasco from our former decorator, we had already given up the dreams of having an elegant and beautiful hall. But it was just unbelievable the quality of service we got. The linen was so beautiful! The ceiling draping, lighting,centerpieces, backdrop and sweetheart table made everyone go woah! The detailing was amazing! And to imagine that I paid less for a lot more that what others had charged is just unimaginable!  Yes! Yes! Yes! I will recommend Classique 100 times over and over again! I absolutely adored the service i got. You guys will be getting so many referrals from me!!!!!!!   Thank you so much Classique! Queen Souleman

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.

Yvonne was an exceptional wedding planner. We had multiple meetings with her leading up to our special day, and she was always willing to accommodate us. She made us feel like we were a priority and that she had our best interest in mind. I knew that I did not have to worry about a thing on my day because of Yvonne's top-notch professionalism. She is so good at what she does, and truly made our wedding day everything that we dreamed it would be. She was amazing to work with, and we would highly recommend her.

I've worked many different jobs with Brooke. She became one of my favorites to work with on the first job we worked together at the Boston Public Library. In an industry that is very stressful, has tight timelines, and no room for error it's great to work with someone like her. She was able to direct myself and my crew efficiently, clearly explaining where and how she wanted the equipment set up. She maintains focus and keeps a level head at every event I've worked with her. I've seen her communicate and coordinate several different vendors which isn't easy the day of a wedding or private event. I always look forward to the opportunity to work with Brooke because she takes out the normal stress and aggravation with the job. I work in event rentals and have never had a problem I couldn't work out with Brooke!

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!

Trudi was very helpful in planning my mother's 93rd birthday party. She looked into restaurants and private rooms for our event and then found us the perfect place with a fantastic jazz trio who played music of my mum's era and more. Trudi recommended the florist, the birthday cake bakery and offered many helpful ideas to make the evening wonderful. The food and service at the restaurant Trudi recommended were great. I'm so glad I found Trudi. She made my mother's birthday fun, unique and memorable. Everything went smoothly and my mum is still talking about her lovely birthday party!

About

I am an ordained officiant who is happy to officiate weddings for people of all religions, creeds, and orientation. Helping to make a couple's ceremony personal, engaging, funny, and heartfelt is something I specialize in and absolutely love doing. The cliche that, "one never works a day in their life if they love what they do" very much rings true for me. I will meet with couples as often as needed to ensure the ceremony is perfect. I can write the entire script myself, help you write it on your own, or even deliver a standard script if you are more traditional. I often like to gather anecdotes and background information from friends and family as well, helping to further personalize the ceremony. Upon deciding to work with me, I'll deliver a guide that will help you through the daunting process of planning the ceremony. Even if you choose another officiant, I hope you will visit my site and use some of the resources I have available. Planning a wedding is hard work, and I want to help make it as special as you've always dreamed.

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.
