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!

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.

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.

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.

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 : )

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!

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.

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!

    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!

    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!

    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 love using my creative side, working with the brides and their moms, and having the satisfaction of a job well done when the day is over and the bride and her parents are happy with how the day went.

    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. Helping people and being about to create pretty outdoor spaces

    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.
