Carmen and her team came to my rescue 4 days before my wedding. She saw my cry for help as an opportunity to showcase her character and talent by quoting a fair and reasonable price. Although we realized I had limited options, she did not take advantage of my scenario. She gained my trust within 5 minutes of discussing my needs. Her willingness to help pickup where my wedding planner fell short encouraged me to change my wedding decor as well. I knew I could rely on her. Carmen and her staff went above and beyond; truly providing full service planning and catering. I received several complements on the food and the friendliness of her staff. I wished I found her at the start of my planning process but God sent her just in time. I recommend Carmen and her staff for all your catering and planning needs. She will surely hear from me again. Thanks, Carmen!!!

There are not enough words to express the dedication, excellence, timeliness, integrity, and honesty that Carla provided me on my big day, as well as leading up to that day. Having previously been burned by a former wedding planner (who had actually been banned from my wedding venue and having no Idea until the venue ask who my "wedding planner" was!), I was very hesitant in choosing another. I am not a wedding person, nor do I have the time to be. Pushing average 10-12 hour shifts at work, I had no choice but to have a wedding planner if I ever was going to have a planned event. I took a leap of faith and came across Carla. Carla became my dream and without her, I never would have had my one big day. From finding all the vendors to setting up appointments and creating a table chart to my arrangements and the breakfast rehearsal and everything in between.... I couldn't have done it without Carla. Her price point is very competitive. She is knowledgeable, takes the time to truly know and understand your dreams for your big day. Yet at the same time, she is realistic and will always give you an honest answer. I turned into a princess I never imagined I would be July 7, 2016 because of you.

David met with my fiancée and I very quickly and with very short notice for our wedding to be held in less than a month. Outstanding responsiveness and showed interest in our entire wedding plan to make sure we were considering all our options for weddings necessities, which was certainly not expected of him.

Liane and her team were beyond amazing. Bartenders were prompt, friendly, dressed neat and tidy, and went above and beyond our expectations. Liane was very helpful and you could tell she knew her stuff after our first conversation. We met to go over the logistics and she asked every question you would hope an event coordinator would ask, she even asked about some things we hadn't thought about - which is incredibly helpful when you're planning a wedding on your own - it was a huge sigh of relief to have something taken off of your plate and know it would be handled exactly as you wanted. I had tons of things on my mind on my wedding day that I was worried about, Liane and her team were not one of those things. You'll be hard-pressed to find an event planner with the superb level of service that Liane offers. 10/10, would highly recommend.

I about had a heart attack when I couldnt find an florist. I had such a busy and hectic time at work that most florists wouldnt make the flowers, and the ones that could were so expensive! I felt so relieved when I found Charity and spoke with her. She's so sweet and expereinced with wedding so she could easily put me at ease with my worries lol. The flowers itself were gorgeous and I was so pleased with the bouquets and corsages!

I love to throw parties and ever since I met this young lady life has been so much easier. She has worked with me on small projects and parties and also my daughter's fairytale style wedding. We are already planning my other daughter's sweet 16th and she's only 14. She does the most creative work I've ever seen. This was our latest event on a limited budget

Ivy was flat out amazing. I dropped the ball on being responsive, but Ivy made it work and my wedding was flawless. I appreciated how she brought food for my husband and me. I would 100% recommend her. Ivy as a Coordinator was -very knowledgeable -worked very well with little direction -very professional -worth it for the price -set and sent out a timetable for the caterer/photographer/etc. -worked well with guests

Amber Is amazing! She planned every aspect of our event so that all we had to do is meet with the vendors if needed. I also had her design our invitations, setup our website, handle RSVPs, and guest accommodations coming from out of town. This saved us so much time since we are both so busy with work. She also kept the pricing low so we didn't start off our new life together with losing a huge chunk of money. The month out she was even more incredible with coordinating all the vendors and making sure they were all on a timeline to walking the venue with us to ensure everything was setup how we envisioned. The day of I felt ZERO stress knowing she was handling vendor setup and guiding the wedding party. Everyone had a great time and I thank Amber for that and her amazing vendors. I am referring everyone to her and have already booked her to setup both my husband's Holiday Party and my birthday party. Cannot say enough great things about her and so happy I found her. Trust me you want to work with her!

    Hope was my wedding coordinator and helped me pull off a wonderful day in six months! Her attention to detail really helped pull everything together. She listened to what I wanted to achieve for my big day, and used it to make things come together from the DJ to the venue. Thumbs up for sure!

    We had a fantastic experience with Victoria and LaShondra as our day-of coordinator at our wedding. They were on top of everything and asked questions to us and our venue that we hadn't thought of. The duo got right to work about two months out from our wedding and helped keep us organized and on track. They were extremely detail-oriented and really worked hard for us. I would totally recommend them to any bride in need of a 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.
