I had a southern-chic-themed wedding on May 10, 2014. Like Mother, Like Daughter made the process of planning my wedding completely stress free and they came up with amazing ideas to make it a dream come true. When I talked about their ideas for my day my friends and family couldn't wait to see it. The staff at LMLD even designed my Save-The-Dates and took my engagement pictures, all of which I have gotten plenty of compliments about. They truly came up with everything to make my wedding a success. Knowing that I had them to help me with decisions and planning was extremely reassuring! I definitely recommend!

I hired AddFlavah to help me plan my New Year’s Eve wedding in my hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina. At first I was leery about using a consultant/coordinator however, since I would have to make over 90% of the arrangements for my wedding long distance from my current home in Virginia, there was no other option. Still leery I contact Desiree of AddFlavah using information from a previous thumbtack request I have completed for my mother’s birthday party July 2015. However, after about 5 minutes of speaking with Desiree I felt at ease. Desiree is a consummate professional in her field. She was virtually my legs in my hometown and made sure I had nothing to worry about but getting down that aisle New Years Eve. Desiree, helped me bring my dream wedding to life from location, decoration, party favors, to food, to the tribute to my departed love ones. In addition she did all this for an extremely reasonable price. I loved working with Desiree and will so again on every party that I have in the future.

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.

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.

Shakiera was very honest and helped me through everything. Every time we spoke, either through phone or email, I felt 100x better and 100x less stressed because I knew I was in good hands. Since she was a day-of coordinator, we didn't slate to officially start on the timeline and other details until 2-3 months before wedding but Shakiera was always available to answer my calls. She completely takes over all communication with your vendors where she contacts them directly to ensure all details are accurate and that each vendor knows when they should arrive. This gave me peace of mind!

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.
