Kim and her server were super friendly, and made some killer drinks for our wedding. Everyone was talking about how good the drinks were. I would hire Kim again if I am in need ever again. They went above what was asked, She was so helpful in lighting all the candles before everyone enter the dinning hall, cleaned up tables, and made sure no one had to wait for a drink. If you Hire her you won't be sorry. Thank you Kim for all your hard work!

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!

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.

Alecia provided decor for my wedding in 2014 and it was beautiful. I told her my theme and she went above and beyond to make sure every detail was perfect. She was effecient and listened to the details. She made custom centerpieces for the tables and even made the boutonnière soft the men! She's awesome.... Simply put!

If you are planning a wedding, I heartily recommend Something Fabulous Weddings! During our long engagement, my wife and I (control freaks both) went back and forth about whether to have a large event to celebrate the actual event. Both of us had been married before and had considered throwing a big party sometime later in the year. But for some reason, with six weeks to go, we decided to have a reception on the wedding day. We had a guest list with more than 300 people on it, and we had identified a venue, but the venue was not in any sense a traditional one, so it came with no ready infrastructure available to support the event. Worse still, it was outside. So, less than six weeks before the big day, we had no bad weather plan, no theme, no caterer, no chairs, no tables, no music, no nothing except a vague sense of what we wished the celebration to be like. Fabulous Weddings to the rescue! They saved us. I have been told many times it was one of the best events of its kind that people had ever attended—the food, the setup, the tables and flowers and everything about it was just, well, FABULOUS. Of course, it rained cats and dogs on the day of the event, and everything had to be shifted and changed at the last minute. Through it all, Ashley and Trent remained cool and calm and got everything to work and work so well that we were proud to be the hosts of such a special night, and our guests were ecstatic! Without FW, we were zeros. With them, we were heroes. Do yourself a favor, hand them the keys and let them drive you to success. We did.

    My now husband and I utilized Visionary Concepts for their day of Wedding Cordination package. When it came down to the very little details such as tattoo coverup for my bridesmaids Visionary concepts did an exceptional job. We worked with Sharon for a month in a half prior to our big day, and you would have though we worked together forever. My family and friends said we hired great vendors. We pride visionary concepts on Their professionalism,and poise. If I could sugggest to any bride to be, it would be to hire a corfinstor and not and family member. Sharon thanks for marking our wedding a day to remember.

      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.
