Northland Special Events decorated for our non-profit agency's annual fundraising gala. Staff was friendly and responsive. Decorations were beautiful! NSE understood that we needed to keep expenses as low as possible due to the nature of our organization and the purpose of the event. They provided a substantial discount and made every effort to propose ideas that stayed within our budget.

Diane and her team were extremely accommodating. Gracious and Detail oriented, the décor was outstanding and came off without a flaw. The event was the talk of the hotel staff where we held the wedding reception; "It has never looked this beautiful" was the comment of the caterers, the hotel management and many others who co-staged the affair. Many thanks to Occasions for being a part of an event of a lifetime!

I start from the beginning and find out exactly what help they need. My ceremonies are fit for each personal couple. I let them know what needs to be in there and the rest is exactly what they want. It can be as long or as short as the couple wants. The shortest I've done was 2 minutes and the longest was 25 minutes. I have many view examples and ideas that can be added to the ceremony, but the end goal is to make it as special and perfect for them as possible.

      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.
