My wife and I had a great experience with the Live Action Events crew. We used them to provide music during the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and of course, dancing. They provided a worksheet which walked you through all the conceivable preferences you may have during this process. They also welcomed us to share a some playlists of songs to get a feel of the vibe we were going for. On the day of the event everything went smoothly during the ceremony and dinner. Live Action was also helpful with speeches and other directives. Then the real fun began during the open floor dancing session. Our family and friends were on the dance floor all night and hardly anyone sat down, it was a real blast! Would definitely recommend their services to anyone planning a wedding.

I highly recommend hiring a wedding coordinator for the day of. You don't want to deal with the craziness. You also don't want a friend or relative helping out as the coordinator because they will not be able to fully enjoy the wedding as a guest. I learned that firsthand when I was the coordinator for my friend's wedding. I am a planner myself so was very careful about who I hired. I wanted someone who was top notch and affordable and Da’Nice and her team are fantastic. It doesn't get any better than them. They go above and beyond the call of duty and has very good energy. She also has a very calming demeanor which is necessary when dealing with guests, vendors and the tasks at hand. She is the best in the business!

Our wedding took place Aug 9, 2014. It rained and poured all day and we just weren't sure how things where going to turn out but Cindy had a plan B ready and it was excellent. The decor of the reception hall was AMAZING. It was everything we imagined and more. She kept everything in line and organized. My wife and I had to do nothing. She had it all under control. If you're looking for a great wedding planner look no further than Cindy Harrington. She is the BEST!

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!

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.

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.

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.

    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!

      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.

        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.

        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.
        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
