Words cannot describe what an absolute pleasure it is to work with Leah! Wedding planning isn’t a task I enjoy so hiring a skilled planner/coordinator is a lifesaver to me. What was unexpected is how unbelievably sweet and caring Leah is as a professional and a person. She truly goes above and beyond to ensure an amazing day and the whole process is stress-free. My family and friends cannot stop raving about her hard work. From connecting to fabulous vendors and figuring out those last minute day of adjustments she is a true professional. Do not hesitate for a second to get a planner/coordinator-Leah goes above and beyond. If you want to relax at your event reassured all details will be taken care of she is worth the investment many times over. Leah, your talent and passion for wedding planning and coordinating is truly exceptional. I’m very grateful for your expertise and dedication to planning the perfect event!

Kat planned and catered two important parties for me. She was professional, worked with a small budget and both parties were really exceptional due to her efforts. I highly recommend her both for planning and catering events. N.H.

    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.
