Meagan baked 150-200 cakepops for my wedding reception favors. She made two flavors of my choosing and made them in the exact style and color scheme to match my wedding décor. I even sent her ribbon and monogrammed tags that I wanted on the favors and she individually wrapped and tied the tags to the pops! She arrived early, set up the favors on a display, plus the pops tasted great! She did a wonderful job and I would definitely recommend her for any party planning events!

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.

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.

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!

Annie is a wonderful host/manager/event planner! Having worked with her to create both personal social events and business social events, I can attest to her warmth, professionalism, and efficiency. Not only does she do an excellent job "making it happen" for an event, but she makes helpful suggestions and offers advice in a way that is accessibly and authentic. It's like getting help from your mother except with no judgement or guilt! Annie really is a first-rate professional and one who truly cares about YOU, YOUR EVENT, and making YOU HAPPY. I highly recommend consulting with her when you plan your next event in the Raleigh area.

Lili did my wedding in late October 2015. She was very punctual, organized and personable throughout the entire process. Our wedding was beautiful and she helped us write our vows. I would recommend her to anyone doing a wedding in the Raleigh-Durham area.

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.

    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!

    Honorable Helpmate was definitely a great choice. I described my vision for my bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres and they looked better than what I imagined. We're truly grateful to this company and will use again if need be. I highly recommend them. The owner made all my pre wedding issues disappear, so that I could be happy planning my wedding.

      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

      We use A&A for all of our conferences and they plan it with excellence. We don't have to worry about if everything is taken care of because they are normally on everything before we even think to ask. We will continue to use them.

        Makiba is the most upbeat, creative and organized person to work with. Her outgoing personality always renewed my excitement about my upcoming day each time I met with her. She is extremely driven and her high level of motivation only encouraged me even more to get stuff done off my never-ending check list. She stayed on top of me to get stuff done! But that was necessary because if she didn't, a lot of stuff probably would have been very last minute - or not done at all. I had a handful of DIY projects in mind to do - but I kept procrastinating. If it wasn't for Makiba, they honestly would not have gotten done at all! I'm so thankful she helped me with (or either did them herself!) my DIY projects. They added a really nice personal touch to my wedding and reception that would have been missing otherwise. I'm so thankful she helped me as much as she did. I could not imagine not having her there the day of my wedding - she handled so many behind-the-scene tasks that I was not aware of and probably would have stressed me out if I did! I cannot express how much I appreciate everything she did before and most of all, the day of my wedding. If you are a bride - you HAVE to get a planner to help you, even if it is just the day of assistance. Makiba will not let you down! Not only is she professional, but she is caring and has a personality that makes you feel like family.

        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.
