Ellen was lovely to work with and very attentive and communicative which is essential when planning a party. My party was a small holiday one but the hors d'oeuvres she made were fabulous and the leftovers made wonderful work lunches :). Thanks Ellen!

THEY ARE THE BEST. I hired Giggles and Wiggles Face Painting for my graduation event. This was a college graduation for my Master's degree (I am 24) and I wanted a fun factor that would really enhance the celebration. I was worried at first that this would be a juvenile element but boy, was I wrong! There were about 45 adults and only one 4 year old, but this was a hit! Johanna and Sheila worked with me the entire time with planning the event. They were very attentive and VERY PROFESSIONAL. I had to reschedule my event and they were EXTREMELY FLEXIBLE in assisting me. They were punctual and brought a poster with ideas for BOTH children and adults and they even included balloon artistry (which to my surprise the adults REALLY enjoyed)! Johanna is an wonderful person. Not only is she an incredible artist but she has an AMAZING personality. I felt like she was family. She is incredibly outgoing and she interacts with everyone and gets everyone involved. Furthermore, she is extremely passionate about her work and even recommended a design and hair paint that worked so well with me! She is so sweet. She even let my brother who has autism wear her clown hat the whole night. Needless to say, she's a very kindhearted person. The balloon artist is also incredibly talented with his art. I was really impressed at how he got the adults to enjoy and play with the balloons. At one point, everyone was sword fighting and walking imaginary dogs, and these were are adults in their 40's and 50's! Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better night and I really owe it to the face painters because they are who tied the party together and really made it a blast. They went above and beyond with their work! I definitely recommend their services and I will be using them again in the future for a glow in the dark Halloween party! (Also, the paint is of high quality. I was sweating and it stayed on nicely and when it was time to take it off, it comes off easily with soap and water, so no scrubbing.)

We had a small wedding celebration catered by DeCicco and Sons and it was a great experience from beginning to end. From the first text I received with a quote it was clear that they are incredibly professional and easy to communicate with. On top of the great customer service the food was very delicious and everyone raved about the taste and how well they accommodated for dietary restrictions. I would recommend them in a heartbeat and am so happy we found them through thumbtack.

Ana did a spectacular job managing our son's 3rd birthday party. We did a peppa pig themed party and she was very accommodating with all of our requests, made the process seamless and the end result was stunning. All our guests commented on how beautiful the decor was and Ana and her team were extremely professional with every aspect of planning the party. We would seriously consider hiring her again for our next event.

We could not have asked for a better experience. Tyler was extremely attentive prior to our event and fielded my (many) questions with diligence and patience. The day of event, he went above and beyond all expectations. He went so far as to bring little signs, candles and flower petals to make the dessert arrangement more beautiful than I could have imagined. Him and Josh, the second bartender, were incredibly personable with our guests and made sure everyone was happy and taken care of. HighLife takes absolutely all of the stress out of planning a big party at a very reasonable price. I would recommend Tyler and his team to anyone.

Peter and his team did a fantastic job. He responded quickly to all of my messages and accommodated every request I made. He proposed a great menu and took my suggestions for additions, and was very attentive to all the details. The day of the event was a breeze and the food was delicious and looked dry impressive. I would strongly encourage anyone who is planning a cocktail party style event of any size to hire him and his team. You'll be delighted!

The Bella Couture Team was outstanding. They took care of every little detail including things we would not have thought of . They absolutely were the reason our special day was so special. They were responsive to every need and concern and were constantly putting our minds at ease when the panic started to set in. Every time we had a concern they immediately addressed it and put our minds at ease. We could not have asked for a better planner for our wedding. They are truly amazing!

Where do i start Melyssa was great. I hired Alchemist Events to plan my wedding in SC 4/7/18. She came down early and was very organized. She gave my girl a schedule and meant business. 1st time ever my girls where ever on time. It rained for the wedding and Melyssa didn't care she told me its blessings from God lets do this lol. I forgot all about the rain and i really enjoyed myself. Everything was on-time and she was very professional. I would highly recommend her

Brittney has been an invaluable resource and advisor during our entire planning process. We're sort of hands-off when it comes to our wedding and our focus is more on nailing down the major elements of a good party so we can enjoy ourselves and not get bogged down with details. Brittney totally gets that. She is a fantastic listener and a true professional. She has checked in with tips to keep us on track, offered recommendations for fabulous vendors from her arsenal of partners, and is just generally a fabulous, thoughtful person. We trust her entirely and feel so much more at ease (and confident we'll enjoy our wedding day!) knowing she will be directing the flow of events. We highly recommend her to anyone who is considering wedding day guidance -- from basic service the day of to full blown planning. Brittney is amazing!

I threw a catered birthday party, and upon signing up with Thumbtack, Brooklyn Kitchen got back to me in the hour. Throughout the entire process, their responsiveness was always immediate and thorough, anytime I had a question, and we were even able to set up a call to discuss the catering. The food was delivered promptly and ready to present/serve, friends raved about the wings at the party and the NEXT DAY. Highly recommend.

Ativa from Frecklez catering provided me with OUTSTANDING food & service for our Spa themed bachelorette party. Not only was she flexible with our requests, but she kept in touch throughout the entire planning process to ensure that all of our expectations were met. The sliders we ordered were prepared shortly before we picked them up for optimal freshness. She even remembered the condiments and dressings such as cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes when I had forgotten all about it. EVERYTHING tasted delicious and was seasoned to perfection. Everyone enjoyed the tea sandwiches as well and raved about the food overall. Not only was the food amazing, but so was Atvia! She communicated with me every step of the way and paid extra attention to the details (for example she marked turkey sliders with a different color tooth pick to set them apart when I didn't even think of that). I cannot say enough about how wonderful my experience with Frecklez catering was. You cannot go wrong with utilizing their service and I will be sure to recommend them to all friends and family in the future.

First off ours wasn't a typical event. My son was married last year in Seattle and this was the NJ celebration for all those who couldn't make the trip. Second, I contacted Marcia exactly a month prior to the date. Not much time at all. And I had never worked with a planner before so I wasn't sure what to expect. Third, other than centerpieces and favors they had no clue what they wanted and Marcia helped me pull ideas together. The number of changes that took place in the last 5 days alone - people dropping out, people deciding to attend, a change of the entire floor plan which meant moving the DJ and changing table numbers - was making me crazy but she kept telling me it would be ok. On the day of while setting up our wine bottle centerpieces she realized we hadn't sent enough flowers and still managed to improvise and make everything beatiful. Because they wanted open seating I wanted to reserve 6 tables for family. She not only greeted all our guests (because we were arriving later) but also managed to pull off the reserved tables with a list of names to seat at those tables. When we arrived everything was perfect, everyone loved it. I was able to just enjoy our friends and family and have a good time celebrating without any worries. When the party was ending she and Amanda were very quickly breaking down and packing up everything that would come back to me. This review was long because I wanted to get across how much she did in just one month. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a party planner, wedding planner, decorator. You'll be happy you did.

I had an amazing time in my baby shower thanks to RêveCraft Events. Pooja & Dhara the owners of RêveCraft Events are so nice and creative, I personally really appreciate them for being patience with me. They really made my vision come true. The theme of my party was Storybook Theme and they really had some amazing ideas too where they also helped me organize my event. I was a little worried that it would come out expensive but their rates were very reasonable. They really were so accommodating and really good with actually working with you. I would highly recommend booking your event with them.

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.
