Leslie was such an outstanding choice for our wedding caterer, her food was amazing, textures were perfect, flavors complex and hearty! My husband and I were married at Live Well Farm in Harpswell, Maine Leslie and her team did an amazing job feeding 70 hungry guests with an array of appetizers and main course meals. Her roasted chicken was to die for and the seafood Alfredo was a huge hit. If you are planning a wedding or any special event, do yourself a favor and hire Leslie - your food will be five star amazing!

Such a feeling of relief now that I've enlisted Emica to take over my wedding planning! She was very friendly and easy to talk to and I feel confident that she will be a very capable planner with her wedding experience and her background in corporate training. She knew exactly how to manage the planning and sequencing of events leading up to and on the big day. She also has some great ideas to help us stretch our budget.

I had the pleasure of working at the Frog & Turtle (even though for a short period of time) I saw how Chef James truly took pride in his food. 3 years later I found myself planning my wedding and first stop was to Frog & Turtle to inquire about catering. Not only did they customize an amazing meal for my wedding they created an atmosphere we could never forget. Honestly the best food around and a man who is dedicated and committed to making his customers happy. You can trust that you will always have great outcome using Frog & Turtle as your caterer. Great food and great people. Thank you James, Meghan and your team for creating an amazing wedding for us.

As a father of four girls I have handled my share of wedding tasks. When my youngest got engaged she asked me to pay for a wedding planner so that she wouldn’t go through the stress that her three older sisters had to while planning their own weddings. My wife and I found Alanna through the Knot. I was impressed with Alanna’s reviews and how highly people spoke of her. We setup an interview with her and within seconds we were set on her. I noticed that the other planners we met with charged a lot higher than Alanna for less work. Alanna picked the perfect venue in North Conway and planned every last detail. My daughter who is one that doesn’t like to make decisions loved that Alanna took charge. She planned more than just a wedding, it was a full vacation. She booked us a tee time at a course I wanted to play for ten years, she scheduled spa and yoga sessions, and the inn room that she put us is could not have been more relaxing. I haven't seen my wife so happy in years. When the wedding day came it was peaceful and enjoyable. I wasn't running out to get ice or setting tables or hunting down a missing box of decorations. My wife and I checked in with Alanna at noon to see how the venue was coming along and everything was already setup. Every table setting was lined up perfectly. The Dj, bartender, and caterer were on time and ready to go which I had never seen at the previous weddings. We got to be guests at the wedding for the first time. Alanna made sure we didnt worry about anything. The ceremony was beautiful. Alanna added in a bunch of little details that made my daughter feel like a princess. I could not have been happier when I saw my little girl in her dress. I wish I could relive that moment over again. The reception was just as great. Alanna selected the caterer, baker, florist, dj, officiant, and venue all off a conversation with daughter about how my daughter and son in law met and fell in love. She could not have picked more perfect vendors. They were all just incredible and well within the budget. Alanna ended up saving us money on the wedding. I almost want to have another wedding to pay for just to work with Alanna again. Maybe she will consider being our family's travel agent from now on. This woman is remarkable and it shows that she loves what she does.

We hired Ron to help plan and DJ our wedding on 10/18/14 through word of mouth and were extremely satisfied with his work.. Ron went above and beyond and took time to come to our rehearsal meet the family and assist in the process. Him and his wife played Lynard skynards "Simple Man" acoustic for the mother son dance... It was amazing... They did such a great job!! On top of DJ'ing they provided the announcing and pre planning of wedding.... My wife and I didn't were pretty skeptical about who to hire and are extremely satisfied for how Ron went above and beyond what we hired him to do!!!

    M.A.N.E Catering provide the food for a wedding I attended last summer. They did an amazing job. Everything I ate was delicious. My favorite was the sole stuffed with crab. The pasta salad was awesome to. The wait staff was professional, friendly and very accommodating. All in all it was a great experience. I would definitely use them for any of my catering needs and would recommend them to anyone else.

    I hired Dyer Designs and Events to handle my 25th wedding anniversary party for 50 people at the Harraseeket Inn in Freeport, Maine. The owner, Samantha Dyer was a pleasure to work with and handled every detail above and beyond my expectations. Her creativity, attention to detail , meeting deadlines,managing vendors, ability to be full service with printing placecards, tags for favors,etc , along with on-location services made my job very easy. Everyone raved about the party and I didn't have to worry about anything so I could enjoy the night. I was so pleased with Dyer Designs and Events I have hired Samantha Dyer to manage my family reunion on the coast of Maine in August. Donna West Palm, Florida

    Kelly was excellent to work with for my wedding flowers! I gave her a framework about what I wanted and she ran with it so I could focus on other things. I never worried because I knew she would have it handled and it would be beautiful! She has an eye for detail and made great suggestions. She kept me on track and communicated when needed. I'd highly recommend Garden of Eaton! Thanks, Kelly 😀

    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.
