I am writing to let everyone know how pleased we were with Kelly Houlehan as a wedding coordinator for our daughter’s wedding, June 24, 2017. The ceremony was held at the MN Arboretum and we some scheduling challenges that Kelly navigated easily. When I arrived at the Arboretum at 11:00 am the day of the wedding, I had no idea Kelly and I would not get into the reception venue to prepare the tables until much later in the day when I was scheduled for photos. Kelly used her time efficiently to listen to my detailed plan, sort the décor to facilitate the transfer of flowers, candles, lights, pictures, and butterflies to their respective locations. She set up everything without my help. The reception room was absolutely stunning and the ceremony lovely. I could never have successfully done the décor had it not been for Kelly’s hard work, efficient planning and professionalism. Kelly was also on hand to reminded us of our photo timelines and got us to the ceremony location on time. She served as a point person for any questions that came up during the reception like helping the DJ to upload the slide show, coordinating the event with the Arboretum staff and keeping my relatives' meals warm while they stepped out for a minute. Kelly was there to respond to every question or problem that arose. She also help organize clean up and packed the décor at the end of the evening. WOW!! Kelly was easy to work with and made it possible for me to enjoy my daughter’s wedding, eat a wonderful meal and celebrate the evening with dancing. I cannot speak more highly of Kelly’s ability to listen carefully, actualize that plan, herd our families around to pictures, ceremony and reception, and clean up. She is an exceptional contractor for the Wedding Collective. I would highly recommend Kelly’s services to everyone who is planning a wedding. Thank you Kelly.

Jaime did an amazing job of helping me plan my destination wedding. I tried to do it on my own, but after 4 days of searching for the right venue, I was feeling overwhelmed. I hired Jaime as my wedding coordinator and she was able to provide several options within hours of my initial contact with her. She respected my budget and only offered services in my financial range. She was available every time I contacted her with a question, concern, or idea. She created a Pinterest board exclusively for my wedding, which allowed me to see ideas that fit with my desires. I'm a Type B personality and just don't enjoy the overwhelming amount of work that goes into planning a wedding. Jaime took on the challenges of my destination wedding with zeal. She doesn't treat event planning like a job; she takes the time to make people feel like their event is the most important thing she's ever done. I highly recommend Jaime for any event planning. I will definitely hire her again!

    I could not have asked for a better wedding planner! Shellee is an all around wonderful woman who made our wedding day the best day ever. She helped us organize, set up, and decorate our reception. She made all our flowers (bouquets, boutonniere's and flower arrangements for the tables). She even spent our entire wedding day doing last minute items to make everything go smoothly and she was there during the reception to keep things in tip top shape. I gave her a few of my ideas of what I wanted and she ran with them and made it a hundred times better than I could of imagined. Absolutely loved her!! I still to this day hear how wonderful our wedding was from other friends and family. She is very well organized and is there to make it stress free for you and your family. I would recommend her any day!

    Chris was awesome, he met with my wife and I about an hour before the ceremony. In that time he met and greeted my wife, family & friends. Got me to feel comfortable and not so nervous even told us all a little about himself. When it came to the ceremony he was able to complete it exactly how I wanted. I asked for it to be simple and sweet, and gave exactly that and also acknowledged that I just wanted to get to our marriage and not be so concerned with the wedding. My marriage ceremony was small and simple and when I do decide to have a wedding I would definitely choose to use him again. And I would recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant. Also it was awesome to find out that we were his first same-sex couple.

    Ask for the moon event planning did my best friends wedding and they did a wonderful job! I offered to help out for the day to make sure that everything went right on my friend's wedding day, but this event planner took care of absolutely everything! They were so organized and I felt like I could relax and enjoy myself. It turned out to be an incredibly gorgeous wedding and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves! I plan on choosing the same event planner for my wedding next year! :)

    Ania and her team were simply amazing. They took what was a tight window for a room flip and made it happen effortlessly. Throughout the night, we continually received positive feedback about Ania and her crew from our DJ, caterer, etc. She and her team are definitely the glue that makes a great wedding come together.

    Jessica and Jenna are true professionals. I booked them as my day-of coordinators for my wedding reception, and from the beginning they were prompt and clear communicators - over email, by phone, and in our in-person site visit. They really know weddings and events inside out and were always thinking two steps ahead. I always felt like they were listening to my vision and asking good clarifying questions in order to execute my event in the best way possible. My guests even remarked on what a genuinely cheerful presence they brought to the event day! It was a pleasure working with them...thanks JMH Events!

      I contacted Melissa to help with my daughter's September 22 wedding, and it was a great decision! Throughout the process, she was responsive and constantly communicating with us about the many issues and details involved in a large wedding. The day of the wedding couldn't have gone more smoothly as she and her team were making sure every detail and transition was seamless and polished. The entire wedding party enjoyed working with her, and according to our guests, it was a wonderful evening! If I have another event to plan, I won't hesitate to contact Melissa!

      Our wedding was on a very tight budget and we were consulting florists to fit our small budget for flowers. We finally decided to do it ourselves to keep the costs down. However, I did want to leave a feedback for Lori as she was very easy to work with. She is patient and took the time to understand my needs! Wish you the best!

      Joan did an amazing job with our wedding! My husband & I were convinced we wouldn't need a wedding planner. But a few weeks before the wedding we were swamped. Joan was extremely professional, worked within our budget, & made sure our big day went off without a hitch. She even worked with my Mom to decide the best flowers & color scheme for our wedding! She helped arrange the food, set up the venue, the photographers, video, music & audio equipment. What impressed me the most was her amazing ability to maintain control as well as her passion for making our day stand out amongst all other weddings! Our friends & family are still raving about it!

      I like to think of myself as the barn and tent expert. A lot of planners do not specialize in this category. Plus I have the decor to also add to the look.

      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.
