"I’ve never worked with an event planner previously so wasn’t sure what to expect. I hired Kelly to source vendors, organize and oversee my birthday party so my vision could be brought to life and I could enjoy the event without dealing with any of the typical headaches of hosting an event. My experience and interaction with Kelly were predominantly positive. I had a fabulous birthday party. My friends and family are still praising the great time they had. There were several challenging elements that I wanted to have at my party which Kelly patiently reassured me would work out ok and for which she diligently researched and managed to bring it all together. The first was the piece de resistance, this phenomenal and gorgeous charcuterie display and finding a caterer who could create and bring to life my vision. Kelly engaged Apyn Catering who created this incredible charcuterie presentation which spanned a 7 plus foot marble island. It exceeded my expectations and the Pinterest inspiration which I shared with Kelly. FABULOUS PERFECTION!! My guests are still raving about it. It was a vision. The second key item was a feature photo wall which consisted of a customized backdrop with an extensive balloon display framing the feature photo wall. That too came out great after much angst and cost considerations to contend with. Not having worked with a planner before, I think any minor mishaps or disappointments were a result of my not clearly understanding what was in scope, etc. During the entire process, Kelly kept me informed, brought me options to consider, came up with solutions/alternatives to problems and cost and kept focus on my budget. She is organized, provided summaries of what we discussed, timelines to meet, etc. I would recommend Kelly and thank her for helping me with my first, but hopefully, not my last event. Well worth the minimal investment in a planner to help bring your vision to life. Thank you!!"

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.
