I was lucky to come across Meagan last year when searching for a day of coordinator. Even though I was having a smaller wedding of about 75-80 people I realized that having someone there on the day of to help make sure things went smoothly would be crucial to relieving some stress. Meagan did a great job of making that happen! She helped us through an efficient rehearsal process and checked on me throughout the day of the wedding. She did a great job of helping set up my decorations and even thought of some great last minute details to make the most of the flowers I ordered. She even rearranged some of the vases to make them look even better. Meagan also made all of the cake pops for the wedding and they were delicious and looked great with the theme and decorations. I would highly recommend working with Meagan to make your wedding day memorable and stress free!

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.

Allegiant was great to work with! We had such a fantastic experience with them for our wedding. As with most weddings, things didn't go quite as planned and our driver was flexible and accommodating! The Limo was beautiful and everything went well with almost zero stress on our end. THANK YOU ALLEGIANT LUXURY LIMOUSINES!

Kim was a great bartender, and her crew took great care of our family and friends at our wedding. She provided the bartending and wait staff. The drinks tasted great and wait staff worked very hard. I would definitely recommend her and would use her services in the future.

Amy is amazing from the start. I hired her to help me think of everything I am missing. First and only wedding to plan and I want to make sure it is executed perfectly, and that I can relax during the day. After our first phone call I feel confident Knots 'N Such will make my special day a success!!!

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 enthusiastically recommend Carolina Culinary Creations. I have had several dinners and parties catered for diners that had a variety of food allergies, including gluten, dairy and soy and preferences including vegetarian, vegan and paleo. The owner was able to provide delicious gourmet meals that met all allergy and food preference requirements within my budget. I found her to be professional at every stage of involvement from the initial contact, to meal planning, execution and cleanup. She was always quick to respond and able to work within some unique kitchen environments. My guests could not say enough about the quality of the meals. I plan on using her for all my entertainment needs

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!!

Amy was a tremendous help during my wedding day and through all the details prior. My day would not have been as perfect without her. She helped me with all the details from the moment I became engaged to the wedding day. She also organized and hosted my engagement party, which was beautiful and everyone had an amazing time. She has a great eye for detail and also seeing the big picture. She referred me to an amazing DJ and a local person that created beautiful silk flower bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages. Amy also made and designed my silk flower center pieces, other silk flower displays, and other decorations for my wedding. They were so beautiful and perfect! Amy is super sweet, respectful, and dedicated to her work. She organized her own wedding and has helped many others. She is able to come up with ideas, offer advice, and work within any budget. She will not disappoint! If you need assistance in a day of wedding coorindator or help along the way, Amy is definitely a great choice! My wedding day would not have been as perfect without Outstandingly Original Occasions!

Elizabeth was a huge help when planning my wedding. The planning process got a little overwhelming on my own but she knew exactly what needed to be done and made sure everything ran smoothly. Everything became so much less stressful with Elizabeth's help. I honestly cannot recommend her enough! I know she'll do as beautiful of a job with your wedding as she did with mine.

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

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.
