When we were planning our wedding, many of the details had already been thought out and completed. Nonetheless, we still needed to have the remaining details reviewed and executed, such as aisle and table decor and the itineraries. We were so glad to bring on board Like Mother, Like Daughter Events to assist us with these aspects of the wedding. Due to the large size of the bridal party as well as the wedding in general, it was such a relief to have the presence of LMLD's team to keep the group organized and help them with each of their responsibilities. They also coordinated with all of our other vendors and took tasks away from te Maid of Honor so that she could focus on the bride and enjoy the occasion herself. There was an incident at our wedding where, as a bride, I was thankful that the mother and daughte duo were there to comfort me and remedy the issue. Everything turned out alright, but sometimes a couple simply needs kind attention and that's exactly what Like Mother, Like Daughter provided. In addition to identifying and mitigating several day-of situations, LMLD was instrumental on rehearsal night and many late night requests during the planning as well. Thank you Like Mother, Like Daughter Events for all your efforts and attention to us and our guests!

I have had the pleasure of working with Alison on several occassions, paries, showers, even organizing a house painting event. She is focused, organized, fair, and a delight to work with. She is a real 'roll up your sleeves' type of person, and works very hard toward her goals. I hope this information helps.

Nikki was incredible to work with. She made sure our wedding went off beautifully. She was so attentive to our needs and would immediately respond to our texts/calls. Her prices were extremely reasonable. Her husband even pitched in to help. I can not gush on this woman enough! I love her and would recommend that anyone getting married in the Jacksonville area get in touch with her.

I can't say thank you enough to Tiffany! She was absolutely amazing and did a fabulous job as my day of coordinator. Her professional and easy going personality made it very easy and fun to work with her. Tiffany did a fantastic job with organizing our wedding rehearsal and worked serious magic to get a slight extension of time at our rehearsal venue. The wedding day was organized seamlessly. She was very easy to talk to and discuss ideas with. Anything we needed she was on it and "made it happen"! There were so many compliments from my guests of her and most of my wedding party thought I had worked with her throughout the entire planning process. They were shocked to know that she had only been hired about one week in advance, that's how thorough and organized she was! I STRONGLY recommend her services to anyone and would more than gladly hire her again. Thanks so much again Tiffany. You helped to make our day extra special.

Geneva was amazing right from the start. She made recommendations and gave referrals for everything that I needed help with. She provided at least two business names for each service area....venue, florist, DJ and bakery. Each vendor I chose was equally amazing. I felt like I had known Geneva forever...she has a warmth about her that makes her feel like family. She is extremely knowledgeable, highly professional and well organized. I recommend Geneva to any bride/groom looking for a wedding coordinator. Her assistant, Haley, was fabulous to work with as well.

I hired Melissa as my day of coordinator last weekend for an engagement party that was actually a surprise wedding! It was something that was planned in a matter of weeks, so you can imagine how stressful the weeks prior to the event were. I'm having a hard time articulating how amazing Melissa is as a wedding planner. She is the perfect example of someone who has truly found her calling in life! Aside from my husband, she was the very BEST decision I made in my wedding planning. She was so responsive, and easy to communicate with. She ALWAYS knew exactly what to say to ease my worries and concerns, and she saw that my day went PERFECT and so smooth. I had several guests comment on how wonderful she was. My wedding day was so hectic at times and all I had to say was "ask Melissa..." or "Please get Melissa" and she was there. It's a wonder how that woman can be in so many places at once. I can't say enough wonderful things about her. I have tears in my eyes trying to wrap my head around how much I appreciate her being there. THANK YOU MELISSA! For everything you did, we couldn't have done it without you.

Rose does exactly what her profile says! She helped add the perfect touch to make our May 18, 2014 wedding beautiful, unique, and perfect for our needs/desires! She was the missing piece to our planning puzzle to help pull everything together the closer we got to the wedding day and especially ON our wedding day! From helping find random, but specific decorations, to gladly fulfilling last minute requests...Rose helped our day come together and play out seamlessly!!!! :)

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.
