Of course like everyone else on here, I was looking for the perfect wedding planner LOL. I researched for what felt like forever (to my husband anyways), and I finally found Holly. She was referred to me by several friends and also a thumbtack pro for a 4th year in a row and 2018 Couples Choice Award winner from Wedding Wire as well! So I was finally willing to make the commitment and have her help me with what seemed like a lot of vendor phone calls. From the initial planning to the day of, everything was perfect. She helped pick my venue.. did all the vendor calls and planning perfected my flowers and my vision of what I wanted, for me and all 7 bridesmaids! We als had to find the perfect venue as well as authentic southern food catered in -and even made my mom ( who is incredibly picky but has great yet expensive taste) was Soooo happy!!! My mom thought we spent 6x more than we did, but Holly was able to find what I wanted and my husband Cal as well.. and keep us on time and in budget! Holly -you’re a lifesaver!

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.

My daughter was married at St. Olaf Collage Church and had the venue there as well. Kat was amazing!! She had complete control of everything from beginning to end! As the mother of the bride, I was amazed how smoothly the entire rehearsal and wedding went. Kat was the go to person for everything. She kept things going. The pastor was very late for the rehearsal. Kat took over and didn't waste any time getting everyone started. She stepped in and took care of anything that needed to be done. I would hire her again in a heartbeat and will recommend her to anyone getting married. Her advise up front was invaluable. She saved my daughter so much money with many recommendations and advise. She also did our makeup. She is a professional in all aspects of events. Many wedding attendees asked me who she was and where we found her. They were very impressed with her. My brother-in-law is a pastor and said he wished that all the weddings he sponsored had Kat working at them. He said she really knows what she is doing and what a difference she makes. Thank you so much Kat for all you did to make my daughter's wedding "PERFECT !" You went above and beyond what we expected. OUTSTANDING JOB !!! Cathie Kranz : )

We are writing to give our most enthusiastic recommendation for Erin Steinlage. She is a great wedding planner. We worked with Erin during the entire process of planning our daughter’s wedding in 2013. Her encyclopedic knowledge of all aspects of planning the perfect wedding, people skills and enthusiasm are unmatched. Erin is meticulously organized and has the ability to just "get things done" while remaining calm. She introduced us to excellent vendors, added creativity, handled last minute details seamlessly and accepted challenges with incredible grace. Erin has a keen eye for detail and the ability to juggle the multiple needs of a project of this type. She was truly invested in the success of not only the wedding day, but all the steps it took to get there. It goes without saying that Erin would be a positive and impactful wedding planner for anyone who hires her. Erin is bright and capable and a pleasure to work with. We have wonderful memories of working with Erin.

      Abby planned my wedding last summer and I couldn't have asked for a better person to do it! She was extremely organized, reliable, and her creative ideas and solutions blew me away. Do not hesitate to have Abby work for you, she is one of the best and hardest workers I know!

      I have seen many events catered by Penny and her team, and am always impressed by how seamlessly and flawlessly they take place. Penny always comes more than prepared to make the event perfect, has a lot of creativity, great menu options, and very affordable prices. We've had her to banquets, buffets, anniversary parties, client events, birthday parties, barbecues, garden parties, and more. Hopefully one of these days we'll get to see her work her magic on a wedding, too!

      Bria did an absolutely incredible job planning our wedding. She was well organized, solved problems before we even knew there was a problem, and maintained a professional demeanor with us, our guests, and our vendors. Our wedding would not have been as perfect as it was without her help. We are so grateful we made the decision to hire her and we cannot recommend her services enough.

      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!

        Minka Events really came through for my wedding. A destination wedding planned in just 6 months. They were able to capture just what I liked as well as needed. I was never really the enthusiastic wedding planning bride so it was truly a sigh of relief when Minka Events took over.

          Heather and Justin were an instrumental part in making my wedding day perfect! I cannot say enough great things about SunKissed Rentals & Events and their services. From start to finish, Heather helped me plan my wedding reception and made it a dream come true. Heather and I had multiple coordination meetings prior to the day of which allowed me to sit back and enjoy my wedding day. They handled everything from placing decorations and place cards on each table, to setting up wedding signs, to handing out tips to the vendors. At the end of the night, Heather and Justin tore down all of the decorations and moved the gifts from the venue into our car. I highly recommend working with SunKissed Rentals & Events if you are planning any type of event - they are incredibly organized, professional and fun!

          I strive for excellence in all areas, as if it were my own wedding day. I also offer assistance with vendor recommendations, favor recommendations and preparation, and all items that are to go home with the bride's parents that night, are packed and ready to be loaded into their vehicles before I leave the reception venue (usually about the time the dancing starts). A detailed Contract of Services is signed by the wedding coordinator and the bride's parents, and a copy supplied to the bride's parents at least two weeks prior to the wedding weekend.

          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.
