We hired Kirby for day of coordination, and I am so thankful that we had her. Miranda, Kirby, and I had met before and created a timeline, and I was able to ask many questions, email them both, and depend on them to confirm details of the wedding with all the vendors. The wedding day was rainy, and that made everything much more difficult for Kirby. But she helped set up the rain back up plan for the ceremony, listened to what I wanted, worked closely with the photographer, diverted questions, and helped make sure that everything went smoothly despite nothing going like our original plan. She did all that- plus much more that I probably don't even realize, as the bride, she kept me pretty well out of it so I could enjoy my special day. We couldn't have done it without her.

I had a day of wedding service only but she did everything I asked of her, was on time, friendly. Made sure my wedding reception hall was set up the way I wanted it. She even had my slideshow set up so guests could view it as we were having couple photos taken .

I had a chance to enjoy Frank's wonderful Italian pasta dish and salad. Both were outstanding. If you are planning any kind of gathering, wedding, or party I would highly recommend Frank's Catering. You will not be sorry and you will have your friends/family coming back for seconds.

    Jonathan was the DJ at my wedding. We had about 250 guests, most of whom were under 30-years old. Jonathan had just about everybody dancing nonstop! At one point our photos show at least 80-100 people breaking it down on the dance floor. Jonathan is very professional. He brought all his own equipment, which was more than enough sound-power to rock the 5000 square-foot event space. Jonathan was also very flexible and tasteful in the music he provided. There were classical 1960s love songs, all the way through everyone's favorite current singles, including remixes and Jonathan's own DJ twist. My wife(!) and I are both music lovers and musicians and we were thrilled with every aspect of Jonathan's service. I very highly recommend!

      I LOVE As You Wish. As a photographer I work with a ton of wedding planners. However As You Wish has been my favorite so far. Brennan goes above and beyond for every bride to make sure that they are not stressed out on their big day. She is very well organized and works well with all of the people involved in the wedding. Her keen eye for detail really shows with her decorations. As a photographer we love when planners/designers pay attention to every little detail. Madison Photography would reccomend As You Wish for all of your wedding and party needs :)

      We had a great experience with “Your Day, Your Way!” My daughter got married on June 6, 2015, and Paula and Freedom were there to help every step of the way. Paula was my creative genius who helped with décor ideas for the church and reception site. She created beautiful runners for the aisle as well as stunning pew bows … and the arch, Oh! It was magnificent! Freedom was my savior organizing and decorating before the reception and then during the reception, making sure that everything was taken care of so I didn’t have to worry about the details and could enjoy the evening. These two pros were so easy to work with and truly wanted to make sure that my daughter’s wedding day was done “Her Way”! The evening went off without a hitch and I must thank “Your Day, Your Way.” They’re the greatest!!

      I loved everything about the day and was so appreciative of Marlayna and her team. The day went by so fast I'm sure I would've missed something. We had 3 different locations and so many vendors...it really was a mess in my head. I wish you were with me the whole way, but I'm thankful you stepped in as wedding coordinator.

      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.
