Gladys officiated our wedding with 6 days notice and it was everything we needed it to be! Gladys was more than excited to meet with us beforehand in our limited time to get to know us a bit before the wedding and learn about our relationship. When it came to the day of the wedding, Gladys was professional, warm, and made everyone feel welcome. We loved having a ceremony conducted in both Spanish and English, Gladys did a great job making both parts of the family feel included in the small beautiful ceremony we had. Our wedding was special, unique , beautiful and intimate. It could not have been all that it was without Glayds officiating.

There are not enough words to describe how amazing Boston Event Diva's is! Do yourself a huge favor and hire them immediately! We used Boston Event Diva's for our flowers and coordination and are beyond thankful for everything Jennifer and Shannon did! From taking me to the flower market to look at flowers, to walking us through every hour and detail of our wedding day, showing us samples of arrangements and centerpieces, and calming our nerves when things got stressful, Jennifer and Shannon went above and beyond! They were there for every step in the planning process, offering insight and expertise - which made our day more amazing than we expected. They executed everything we envisioned, down to the most tiny detail, and if anything went wrong the day of our wedding, I had no idea. You can trust that Jennifer and Shannon will do everything in their power to make sure your wedding day is perfect. They both even offered to get on ladders to hang out bistro lights for our outdoor dinner, with Shannon being several months pregnant! We were so thankful for their guidance, expertise, and friendship during the planning process! You will not find a better company that Boston Event Diva's! I could not imagine planning our wedding without Jennifer and Shannon!

Planning a destination wedding in Newport, RI in 6 months while living hundreds of miles away, working full time, moving once cross-country, finding a new job, starting a new job, etc, etc, is no easy task, even with a wedding planner! With everything going on in my life, plus the short timeframe (the wedding date we selected was 6 months out from the day we secured the venue), and the fact that I am a perfectionist, I knew I was going to need help. I was lucky enough to come across SYB Event Planning while on Thumbtack. I interviewed a few companies and ended up selecting SYB because Soraya, the owner, and I really clicked while talking on the phone. While I wasn't necessarily looking for a cultural wedding, I knew she would understand some of the nuances with our families because my husband and I come from different cultural backgrounds. Soraya specializes in taking the time to understand different cultures and she goes out of her way to embed as much or as little as you want of you or your partner's culture into your wedding. I'm so glad I had Soraya for the entire wedding planning process and for the day of the wedding. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and totally exceeded my expectations (this is a perfectionist speaking...just for some perspective). I don't think that could have been possible without having Soraya helping along the way. She challenged me to think about things I would have never thought of and took care of all the details. She went above and beyond to make sure the wedding was as successful as it could be. She even drove over 90 miles each way to get us a cute favor that we really wanted for our guests...without hesitating! I didn't even ask her, but when she heard me talking about what I would like to do if the place was closer, she just jumped in and said she would take care of it. I'm so thankful for everything Soraya did to make our special day a success and would highly recommend her to anyone trying to plan a wedding.

Jen was an integral part to our surprise backyard wedding! Planning everything by ourselves in two months didn't leave much time for us to think about the ceremony or vows, but Jen was so prepared and was able to take our edits the day before the ceremony. She even helped create my beautiful bouquet!! She was absolutely wonderful and I'm so glad she was a part of our special day. Thank you Jen!

Let me start by saying I had no original intention of using a wedding planner. I'm type A and love to plan events. When you start planning a wedding, reality sets in. There are SO many details and vendors and guests to keep track of that you can't even imagine until the time comes. Julie of Something Bleu was the glue that put everything together. She reviewed all the contracts my vendors sent me and helped me communicate with them as well as with the coordinator at the venue (he was NOT easy to work with). The day of your wedding goes by so fast. There simply aren't enough hours in a day to coordinate everyone, set up the decorations, field phone calls and any last minute problems, get ready and enjoy yourself. My wedding day was perfect and I truly feel it wouldn't have been the same without Julie. She communicated with me and my husband going back and forth as we were getting ready separately. The coordinator at the venue is simply in charge of the details at the venue. Julie made sure everyone was on the same page and that everything was just how I wanted it. Her help was invaluable! My husband and I HIGHLY recommend her!!

Valerie and Veronica are not only amazing party planners but they both work extremely hard and are dedicated to making your event one to remember. They are on top of everything, extremely detail oriented, quick responding, genuine, and want to satisfy your visions times TEN! We had our baby shower on February 4, 2017 and it was honestly AMAZING!!! When we walked into the venue we were blown away with the creativity and effort put into the props, center pieces, back drops, lighting, everything was PERFECT! Our guests walked in and asked if our baby shower was a wedding LOL. This shows how extremely detailed and beautiful our set up was. We were beyond happy with the turn out! Everything was gorgeous from the decorations to the sweets and the entire set up! It was the baby shower that we always dreamed of and will remember forever. These ladies made it happen, I truly recommended her for anyone who wants to have that perfect event they always dreamed of. They are one of a kind and you WILL NOT be disappointed! They are already hired for TJs birthday parties and he is not even here yet! We appreciate you ladies. XOXO Ebonique & Troy

My fiancee and I had one simple request to keep our wedding planning and wedding day stress free. Amanda has more than exceeded our expectations. She saved us a lot of money, providing props, design recommendations, averted so many foreseeable crises months before the wedding started. She was flexible with my family's needs, and collaborated with my in-laws in wedding preparations. She ended every call with "Let me know if you can think of anything else you need..." She missed our rehearsal dinner after our rather awful florist messed up our flowers last minute. Amanda was almost like a part of our family, honoring both my needs and my family's, finding peaceful solutions where she could. The wedding turned was like a fairytale. For someone as laidback and almost absent in my wedding planning, Amanda stepped up and turned what I thought was going to be a beautiful day into an extraordinary experience for me and my now husband! Thank you so much!

Without Megan, I don't think our wedding would have happened. Honestly, she was the most valuable resource available to us on our wedding day, simultaneously managing a hostile event director, a largely non-compliant wedding party, and anxious parents, while making sure we had what we needed and our guests happy. It is invaluable to have Megan available as your advocate and delegate so you don't need to worry about every detail while also trying to get married. She was extremely helpful in all facets of her responsibilities and beyond, super easy to communicate with, and a tremendous mediator, and will do a fabulous job with your wedding.

Robyn and Jessica did a wonderful job as day-of wedding coordinators for our July 4 wedding. They listened to our ideas, offered helpful suggestions, and were very professional throughout the entire planning process. We felt confident handing everything over to them on the day of our wedding, and they did a great job! They channeled our vision of how we wanted the space to feel and how we wanted the day to flow.

Fantastic Experience! We were so pleased that we selected Wendy to help us plan my daughters dream wedding. Wendy handled early last detail from start to finish. We gave her access to my daughter dream wedding on her pinterest board and Wendy brought every last detail to life and then more! Wendy helped maintain our theme for the wedding, secured vendors, kept us on budget, she communicated great, handled set up, managed the day of to keep us on time. She is extremely resourceful and well connected with vendors that saved us money. The event planning was stress free for me and my daughter because of Wendy's help. Everyone loved the day (especially the bride and groom) and we are still receiving complements from guest. We never thought we needed a wedding planner but last minute decided we needed help due to demanding work schedules so we connected with her for help and she exceeded our expectations. We did not feel one ounce of stress planning the wedding, we stayed on budget, and the day was amazing.

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.
