Our experience with Top of the City was amazing. This is a highly professional company dedicated to making your event memorable and care free. Maribel was on top of every detail, she was very responsive, punctual and orientative. The quality of the food and presentation was excellent. The service delivered by the staff before and during the event was outstanding. I am very grateful I found this company to organize my event and highly recommend it!

Candra was a pleasure to deal with and responded promptly to my questions. We were coordinating an event for over one thousand attendees, so lots of moving parts. It was reassuring to know that we were dealing with a professional and a very creative one at that!

After I decided to plan a 70th birthday party for my father, I knew I wanted something different other than just a few guests at home. After speaking with the owner of ALD, April, about what I was looking for and what my budget was, she immediately started helping me brainstorm options for locations and vendors to take care of everything from cupcake orders to banners. She even went to visit the restaurant, see the room, and speak to the restaurant event planner before I could make it over to the location. April is super organized and has timelines and deadlines for each step in planning the event and she always returned my calls and emails in a timely manner. When the day of the event arrived she had all of the materials as discussed and decorated the dining room with a beautiful black and gold theme. She provided everything from chair covers and table linens to balloons. Everything went as planned and she stayed around to make sure everything was on track. I'm so glad that I worked with ALD! They created a memorable and unforgettable event.

My experience with Honey Do Wedding and Event Planners was absolutely wonderful. As a husband who just wanted to do something special for his wife and show her appreciation, Angie provided me with the quality service to put my anxiety at ease at an affordable price and by helping keep all the details in order. From the planning and completion phase of the event, Angie was there to make sure everything went smoothly, on time, and with professional quality. I really appreciate the help and service. I highly recommend Honey Do Wedding and Event Planners for all your event planning needs. Thank you.

Michele and Christina were more than we could've asked for. They helped plan, coordinate, and deliver beyond our expectations. My stress levels were very low as they were always responsive before the wedding day and they were on top of every minute the day of. Michele guided our wedding party and vendors with ease and worked hard, yet effortlessly allowing me to feel at ease. Christina was also on top of every moment and went as far as bustling my dress and helping me specifically with things I, myself , wasn't even prepared for. I know they handled much more behind the scenes. I'm thankful for their passion to help and their organized fashion of doing so. Anyone who needs a coordinator in the D.C. Area, I highly recommend Event Planning DC.

BMore Fabulous was such a great find for our wedding, we will be looking to work with them again soon for our family reunion! I needed a wedding planner due to my busy schedule. I wanted someone to be able to accomplish anything I needed from vendor searches to scheduling. I quickly found out that I needed an all-inclusive package, however, all the polished major companies I found were charging a ridiculous amount of money and not providing everything I wanted to be accomplished. To save money and also try to support local businesses or start-ups, students, amateurs etc, I started to look for wedding planners on craigslist, thumbtack, local ads etc. I found BMore Fabulous and was quickly convinced that this was who I wanted to work with. The price was right, the details were many, and the contract was flexible. I did not realize until later, but we really did win big by working with this company. BMore Fabulous was more than all inclusive. Erin, the boss, accomplished all the expected all-inclusive activities such as finding vendors, scheduling meetings, and planning the day of events, but she did WAYY more than that. She was also our decorator for the venue, with her own linen and decor, she provided uplighting for beatuiful effects with her own equipment, and she was our florist for all the bouquets and decor. She also provided the staff and coordination for our bar. If you truly want all inclusive in one place, Erin, from BMore Fabulous is the WOMAN. Also, regardless of what she could provide, Erin, was very flexible. This, I find, might have been the most important benefit we got from working with them. I imagine other polished and bougie companies would be very strict and inflexible when it came to the contract, payment options, changes to your ideas and plans. With Erin, we were able to change our contract twice. Our payment options were flexible, and there were no hiccups with policies. If we had a vision, there was no headache with changing things. My husband and I are very particular and he had his doubts if all of our details would turn out right at the wedding. He actually had his doubts about BMore Fabulous, because all of our meetings were not conducted at an office, and details were written on lined paper, or an old laptop etc. In all reality, that was judgmental. Our wedding turned out absolutely beautiful! Despite that there were so many mistakes from our officiant and DJ, the crowd did not notice, and the only reason it ran as smooth as it did was because of BMore Fabulous! My husband in fact, later said how he was impressed by Erin and her work and how she did an exceptional job. Definitely work with BMore Fabulous!

I hosted a function for about 200 people and used ELG Event Productions. Lisa was awesome! She helped me stay in budget, she was organized, and had a great attention to detail. She thought of things and brought them to my attention before they occurred. On the day of the event, she ensured that things went smoothly and we stayed on track with the timing as outlined in my program. Overall, I had a great experience using ELG event planning services and would highly recommend them to everyone!

Leslie was incredible to work with. She helped make our wedding day such an amazing experience!! From the very beginning, Leslie was very professional, organized and responsive. Not only did she answer questions I had about planning the wedding, she also was helped to reassure me when I was feeling the stressed and overwhelmed. She visited and met with the coordinator at the venue prior to the wedding date and made sure that everything was ready for the big day. During the wedding, she kept everyone on track and made sure the event ran smoothly. She was worth every penny. She helped my husband and I have an incredible day that we will always cherish.

Ms. Young was extremely reliable and efficient in planning my group's event. I live in Atlanta, and the event was to be held in Columbia, MD. She kept in contact with us every step of the way, provided us with referrals for services when we needed them, and was extremely charming upon meeting her, finally at the event. Needless to say, our event went off without a hitch. FIVE STARS.

Aly has been so responsive and helpful throughout our planning process. She touches base with us at least weekly--whether its just checking in, sending us new ideas, inviting us to bridal expos, etc. She is an instrumental part in our planning process, despite her just being our month of coordinator. We are so thrilled with our decision to hire Aly and would recommend her to anyone who may be overwhelmed with the planning process (like I was).

Working with The Willow/Seye was an amazing experience. She was patient and brought my vision to life more so than I could ever have imagined. She had less than six months to plan 3 days of Wedding ceremonies for 400 guests...not many could do that and pull it off as well as she did! I'm so grateful for Seye coming into our lives when she did and wholeheartedly do not believe anyone else would have been able to deliver like The Willow was able. I recommend EVERY bride contact her - she is that good!

I can not say enough about Arielle and the impact she made as my wedding coordinator! I thought I could handle everything on my own, but figured a wedding coordinator would just help the day of. Well, turns out I was very wrong. If it wasn't for Arielle I would have ended up canceling the whole thing and running to the court house. Arielle's organization and attention to detail was impeccable. She helped me plan everything down to the most minute details and it made the day so much less stressful on me as the bride and gave reassurance to all other members of the wedding. She handled all my vendors the day of the wedding. Apparently, there were some major issues that came up that I didn't even find out about until weeks after the wedding because she handled everything before it even got to me. Weddings can be so much more stressful and frustrating than you can even imagine. Having someone there to handle the crazy with your happiness as their main focus can make the most stressful busiest day of your life the fairy tail you have always dreamed of. Arielle has my highest recommendation and was worth every penny, plus her well earned tip ;) Thank you!!!!

Betselot exceeded all of our expectations. It was as though she cared as much as we did about our wedding day being a success. She handled last minute emergencies like a pro and we only learned of them after the event. This allowed us to truly enjoy ourselves on a day you can only experience once. Even after we left our event our photographer noticed how hard she worked and managed the clean up crew - and he let us know what a great value we got by hiring her. If I could give her more stars I would. - Jenny & Juris

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.
