Stephanie got my wedding planning off the ground when I was having difficulty planning it from out of town. She did an outstanding job and the whole day went smoothly. Most of all, it was beautiful. She has a very good eye for bringing class to a special occasion. Because of all her work, I had a stress free wedding.

Leah was our wedding planner. At first I did not know if I needed a planner, as it turns out it was the best decision I ever made! Don’t hesitate to book with her, you will be so glad you did. She provided us support every step of the way. Every detail was executed perfectly. She is positive and supportive through the whole process and brought our vision to life.

Jess did such an amazing job, I actually had several wedding guests ask for her info! In a bridal industry where everything is priced at a triple rate, the value that she added to our day for such a reasonable price was like finding a diamond in a haystack. If there is one wedding vendor that you absolutely have to hire, it's Jess and her assistant Makenna. Thank you again, and I hope to send more business your way!

    Angela managed travel for our destination wedding to Mexico. It was a 70+ person group traveling from all over the country and the world, with complex needs. Not only was she extremely diligent in her planning; but also went above and beyond everything we asked of her. We felt like she actually cared personally if our guests were taken care of. There was no way we could have planned our wedding without her help and guidance.

    Ever since our Flower Bar event with Leah I've really enjoyed going to the grocery store and picking out flowers to bring home and arrange. Flower bar is such a great event! What could be better than drinking with your girlfriends and making beautiful flower arrangements? Would be great idea for weddings or recent home owners. Leah is very professional, and truly entertaining/hilarious to be around. We enjoyed her a lot. Thanks Leah!

    Rebecca was wonderful! She helped me put together the most phenomenal 40th birthday party/extravaganza for my wife that I could ever imagined. I couldn't never done anything like this completely on my own, but she was able to help me put my idea which I had in my own mind to complete fruition. I would definitely use her again, and indeed, I plan to for both personal and business 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.
