My wife and I had a great experience with the Live Action Events crew. We used them to provide music during the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and of course, dancing. They provided a worksheet which walked you through all the conceivable preferences you may have during this process. They also welcomed us to share a some playlists of songs to get a feel of the vibe we were going for. On the day of the event everything went smoothly during the ceremony and dinner. Live Action was also helpful with speeches and other directives. Then the real fun began during the open floor dancing session. Our family and friends were on the dance floor all night and hardly anyone sat down, it was a real blast! Would definitely recommend their services to anyone planning a wedding.

Sylvia was my wedding planner and her work is absolutely AMAZING. I gave her my vision and she ran with it, my wedding was over the top and almost a year later I'm still getting compliments on how BEAUTIFUL it was. I owe it all to Sylvia and Made for You Events I will certainly be using her for every event I plan going forward.

Creative Impressions provided a bartending service for a wedding event. Shunta was very friendly and flexible. She checked in frequently leading up to the event to see if there were anything she could do to help. The guests also has really good feedback from her services. I would definitely recommend Creative Impressions for their bartending services.

Our wedding took place Aug 9, 2014. It rained and poured all day and we just weren't sure how things where going to turn out but Cindy had a plan B ready and it was excellent. The decor of the reception hall was AMAZING. It was everything we imagined and more. She kept everything in line and organized. My wife and I had to do nothing. She had it all under control. If you're looking for a great wedding planner look no further than Cindy Harrington. She is the BEST!

Mrs. Kim is awesome person from within and out. Her and her daughter did an outstanding job at my wedding. Everyone enjoyed their presences. And, asked if she did other functions. I highly recommend Mrs. Kim for your wedding, birthday party, and/or any celebration.

Amy was amazing. We acquired her services for day of that really meant month of planning. Our only regret not having her for the whole process. We highly recommend a wedding planner and choosing Amy will be a great decision. Our daughter's wedding was wonderful. We enjoyed every moment thanks to Amy. Her attention to detail ensured a worry free wedding rehearsal and wedding. Wedding big or small a wedding planner should be a priority.

We started planning our giant Indian wedding extravaganza about three months before the big day(s). The process was overwhelming at first. An event coordinator at one of our two venues saw our distress and suggested Jocelyn as our weekend coordinator. After our first meeting, we knew immediately that she would be a great fit - what a relief!! Jocelyn coordinated an entire weekend of wedding events for us, including a Friday night reception in Venue 1, a Saturday morning wedding ceremony in Venue 2, a one-hour room flip in Venue 2, a Saturday evening horse procession to Venue 2, and a Saturday evening reception in Venue 2. Before our wedding, she calmly dealt with a multitude of decoration and logistical requests from myself and the extended family. She was never flustered, always flexible with her time, and always extremely optimistic. She also had great suggestions for vendors and services that fell within our limited budget. The weekend of our wedding went beautifully, and while some minor details ended up falling through the cracks (centerpieces were different from what we planned - not that anyone but the immediate family noticed!), nothing major went wrong - which is a HUGE accomplishment for a massive Indian wedding planned only in 90 days. Many of our wedding guests told us it was the most organized Desi wedding they had ever been to. What an achievement! None of this would have been possible without Jocelyn. Her and her team are the absolute BEST!!!

I loved working with Ashley and Trent to make my wedding day perfect. They were so attentive to my wants and made sure they fully understood my vision for my wedding. They helped make appointments and went with me to those appointments to take notes, point some things out, offer suggestions, but everything was still completely my decision. They are a great team and I had so much fun with them. Planning a wedding can be stressful, but they took all of that away! The day of the wedding they were both there to make sure everything went smoothly and went off without a hitch. They kept me laughing and enjoying every moment while they took care of all of the little details with such care. I’m so thankful for Ashley and Trent’s teamwork and the time and effort they put forth to make sure everything was exactly as I wanted. One of the best decisions was to hire Something Fabulous Weddings and Events!!

Kate was wonderful and very helpful. She was always available to answer my questions and made sure to make time for the site visits. She even offered some of her decorations (since I was lacking a few essentials) and made my wedding just as I had invisioned.

    I hired Paris to direct my wedding the week before. I did not have flowers or a cake and had to change venues at the last minute. Paris was able to work in a limited time frame and pulled off an almost impossible job! I thought I was going to have to cancel my wedding but she saved the day. Thanks!

    I didn't want a wedding planner but everyone I talked to said that is the one thing they wish they had/regretted not having but I still insisted on not. At the last minute, I decided to do it but everything was planned so I still didn't see a need and couldn't justify the cost. I got talked into it reluctantly. I was WRONG! Shriine and her assistant were the best investment of the entire wedding! She kept everything going smoothly the entire night. She and her assistant were unobtrusive, yet always able to be found when needed. She reminds me of an excellent waiter at a fine restaurant that keeps your drink filled--you don't notice them but the job gets done and you never have to ask for them because they are always there! They did an incredible job and I cannot thank them enough. I will be calling her again when my other daughter gets married but this time it won't be reluctantly or at the last minute! Hats off to Shriine, I could not have asked for better which is high praise since I was kicking and screaming about it!!!

    Emily is very professional, organized and courteous. She was a tremendous help when we planned our wedding. At first, we only hired her to assist with the day of coordination, but as we got into the planning, we asked her to help with vendors- we were thrilled with the excellent job she did coordinating services and payments. Through out the process she continued to help us by taking on additional services, going above and beyond in all she did. The week of the wedding, we ended up have a significant venue change due to folks planning to attend who did not RSVP. (We should have had her help with the invite listing and follow-up too!) Emily helped us to switch gears and re-direct quickly with the hotel. I would definitely hire Emily with Galej Events again and would highly recommend her! Paula & Richie

    Mrs.Gayle of “We've Got You Covered” was heaven sent to my husband & I! From day one when we met her we knew and trusted that she would get the job done, and that she did plus more! Not only did she cover our decor for both our ceremony/reception, but she was also our Day of Coordinator. When she says “We've Got you covered” that is exactly what she means, she was attentive and helpful from day one, until we left as Husband and Wife. Minutes Before the wedding was due to start I had a hiccup with my wedding dress and Mrs.Gayle came in and fixed the situation in less than a minute! I recommend her to any bride, just let her know your budget and she will work it out for you! Mrs.Gayle is a hidden gem in Fayetteville and I cannot wait to see how far she will go. I Can't stress again how thankful I am for Mrs.Nelson, she has become family to my Husband and I and we will love her forever. -The Wilson Family

    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.
