Darlene and her team were a joy to work with. The event was a backyard family wedding reception in the Beverly Hills area. She and her staff were timely, professional and extremely accommodating. Darlene was very responsive as we were planning for the event. She was also very generous with her staff on the day of the reception. They ensured that the area the food was served as well as the areas in the kitchen they worked on were clean and orderly. And to top it off, the food was delicious, hot and never ran low! The honey glazed chicken was a big hit. I would highly recommend Darlene and Oceanique Catering for your next event!

Working with Amy at Devine Events was amazing. She knows exactly what she's doing at an amazing price. If I could do my wedding over again, I would have relieved the stress by hiring her a year ago. I got my spandex chair covers, corsages, bouquets, boutonnieres, and ceremony decor through her, and I was not disappointed. The lesson learned here: HIRE DEVINE EVENTS. SERIOUSLY.

"I hired MonumentalHeights.com for support services and the coordination of my wedding and events surrounding the big day (such as bridal shower, engagement party and etc.). My coordinator Trisha was very professional and detailed. In the contract proposal, she provided a list of services that would be included, which assisted me in choosing the appropriate services and vendors. She always went the extra mile, made herself available, made suggestions when asked, and handled every situation with ease, skill and class. There are no words that can express the depth of appreciation for all the Monumental Heights team hard work. I highly recommend this company. Even after the discussion that the wedding was going to be canceled. Trisha took her time and helped me notify all guests and designed beautifully written cards that were mailed to the proposed guest list. I was able to relax and know that she was there making sure everything was going smoothly. My first suggestion to new brides would be to consider a company and coordinator that truly care about your wedding and not your pockets. So with that being said I would NEVER hesitate in hiring the MonumentalHeights.com team for anything."

Shawn and I have attended the same church and I have assisted her cater a wedding, make home visits for ill people and celebrate holidays together. She is a strong woman of God and takes great pride in everything she prepares whether it be a paid catering event, serving others or cooking for family and loved ones. It is this exact quality that exudes in her food prep and presentation. When you taste her creations...you know that you are loved!

Very professional and affordable! I was referred to Urban Entrepreneur by a coworker of mine. I hired them to DJ my wedding and they did a fabulous job! They treated my family like their own and made sure that I had some say so in the music that would be played. I'm planning my wife's birthday party now and I already have them booked. I will recommend this company to anyone, I actually enjoyed writing this review because I'm such a pleased customer! Thank you Profit! Deacon Rick Tooter

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.
