My husband and I had planned a 1900-1920s themed wedding and we made it a point to have a band that would help set the mood at the event. Toni and I had listened to the Jaztronauts and decided that they would be essential for our event. We ended up having to move the date earlier by a day to ensure we could book the 4-piece band. Jason was very friendly and after a few quick conversations on the phone we were able to secure them for our wedding. Throughout the wedding planning process, Jason was able to take song requests that we wanted to have played that evening. It was very easy to communicate between us and it was much appreciated as the day drew near. On the day of, Jason made sure to contact our maid of honor to verify set up information and he made it very easy to be uninvolved with the small details as the bride and groom. We found it very respectful that they utilized our wedding party as contacts instead of contacting us directly. Jason was also able to play our mp3 song for our first dance. This organization was very accommodating and we felt very respected and would suggest this company to anyone planning an event.

Ania was absolutely wonderful to work with! Very professional but also very personable. She helped us with putting up decorations and taking down before and after our wedding. I wasn't there for the set up, but my mother was absolutely blown away by how she took care of everything so effortlessly.

We chose Bouquets N' Such to do our floral arrangements for our wedding. I worked with Ms. Trudy! Anyone planning a wedding knows how stressful things can be. Ms. Trudy made this the least stressful part of my planning. She knows her stuff and gave me plenty of options to work from. She listened to exactly what I wanted, she worked with our budget and she kept in constant communication with me, any questions I had, she promptly responded, she even anticipated questions I would have and provided that information up front! I wish they had 10 stars because this company deserves it. I received so many compliments on all of the floral arrangements at our wedding. She provided service that was "To good to be true," but it was TRUE!! I cannot say enough about them. They were genuinely happy for our wedding and made my experience so worth it! I would recommend them to anyone for any occasion.

    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.

    If you’re looking for one of THE best wedding planners around, you absolutely need to get in touch with Anjali. Make no mistake, she is the best. We did our homework, interviewed several planners nearly a year before our wedding, interviewed references and nobody even came close to connecting with us and what we wanted on a more personal and professional level as she did. It’s been a little more than six months since our wedding and we continue to receive comment after comment on how beautifully put together our wedding was. It was a true experience and we owe that all to Anjali! Anjali is an extremely intelligent woman who is very thoughtful in her planning. She blends intellect with years of success, a positive attitude, top-of-the-line team of vendors, takes extreme pride in her work and above all else, she honestly cares about you. She’ll take care of you, she’ll go to battle for you, she’ll solve a ton of problems for you and she will always balance your particular quality/price equation. I think we had to most amazing wedding imaginable. Filled with surprises and EVERY part of the ceremony and reception was much better than I actually imagined. How often does that happen…you get more and better than you expected?? She is respected by anybody who is anyone and despite what I clearly saw as a very close and comfortable working relationship with these vendors, she never once let anything slip. She nailed the business end of the wedding planning, budgeting, negotiating and she completely took care of us every step of the way. There are few things more important than your wedding day. I wanted assurances and piece-of-mind that everything would go perfectly despite any problems that may naturally arise. Anjali is the best out there. I’m so impressed with what she accomplished and how she accomplished it and we consider it a total blessing to have had her as our Wedding Planner!

    When I first put out a bid on thumbtack for our wedding, I got a lot responses. Melissa was the first person that didn't make me feel like a dollar sign. She took the time to get to know me and my partner on a personal level and made sure to reflect that in all of the details of our wedding. She and her team are incredible. From the first day we met to the day after our wedding, she has everything covered. I highly recommend working with her!

    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!

      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.

      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.
