for me, there were several things that were important in this party. The food, obviously! but also the guidance and planning that is a part of a party. We did a casual wedding for 120 ppl at a difficult location, under very challenging conditions. Ellen and her staff were very limited for setup time, so more time would have let her set up all the grand ideas that she had. There were points during the planning where I felt Ellen was more exited about the affair than I was! she was that invested. She worked closely with me, guiding me throughout, ready with ideas, keeping me focused to give me the best value possible while developing a vision! We wanted an elegant and eclectic brunch ,with lots of variety but keeping it to a reasonable price point. I look forward to working with her again, maybe I'll cater Passover this year!!!

I cannot say enough great things about Adrienn and my excellent experience. She not only tailored my gown excellently, but I also purchased another gown from her for a future event. My daughter also found 2 fabulous dresses too. Anyone who needs any alterations, dress design, wedding gowns, bridesmaid dress, etc. You cannot go wrong with Adrienn. Highly recommend!! Great style and fabulous experience.

Anastasiya and her team was the best wedding planner I could of found. Anastasiya helped me to the extreme and work with my budget as much as possible , always stayed on top of everything and made sure i didn't forget a single thing. On my wedding day I was able to breathe and enjoy everything because Anastasiya and her assistant had everything completely covered. Thank you so much from both my husband and I for all the help and beutiful decorations that made my day , will recommend to friends and family and will definitely use Make Fun Events on future events.

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!

Words can't express our gratitude for Stephanie and her entire staff. Without Stephanie there would have been no wedding (lol) or at least it felt that way. The entire planning process from beginning to end was so smooth. Stephanie is EXTREMELY ORGANIZED and had every little detail covered. She was very professional and easily accommodated all of our special request. Her attention to detail is impeccable and took great concern with following through each one. She listened to us and made our vision come to life. Stephanie was patient and accommodating through all the hiccups along the way and we are eternally grateful to her. The night before the wedding July 2, 2016 one of our vendors unfortunately did not come through as expected but Stephanie and her team were able to still pull it through. That night Around 11:30 pm I realized that I had forgotten to give Stephanie some items for our early wedding that following morning. She was already on her way to venue sorting out the details and resolving the mishap of our vendors but yet she turned around ,came to my house and picked the items up from me. I was already impressed by Stephanie thus far but when she did that it solidified that we picked the right wedding planner. She is thoughtful of her clients and she went the extra mile to check up on us not because we hired her but it was her genuine acts of kindness and thoughtfulness. We felt so confident we made the right choice of picking Mariage Blanc to partake in our wedding festivities. Stephanie in the process of helping us plan our wedding became more like family to us. For example after our meeting was clearly done she would stay late into the night helping us sort out details going over issues and call almost everyday to find out how we were personally doing and how we were preparing for the big day. She would offer words of comfort to both Sam and I but in particular to me as the nervous bride. Her hard work ethnic is one that surpasses what we and our family have seen. If we could get married all over again without a doubt we would share that day again and the wedding prep process with the entire Mariage Blanc Designs.Thank you and may God continue to bless you all. Can't wait to do the 5 year vow renewals!!! Love Erica and Sam

The luckiest part to have a good wedding is to find the right wedding planner. Ani is the one that you cannot miss. A good friend can try to assist you for the day and the plan, but sometimes more help or ideas you get and the busier you get because most people do not know about a wedding. Ani is the one who will turn to be your best friend and think in your shoes, at the same time, she knows what she’s doing and making everything goes as smooth as you can imagine. Ani is smart, sharp, calm, warm-hearted, and sweet. She gives you the peaceful mind that nothing will go wrong because she’s around to help you all she can. She gets things done and is always on top of her game. She’s punctuate and professional. She’s also creative to make your wedding unique and special. She’s flexible for anything you ask for the wedding. So many things could go out of expectations. And there you have Ani who comes the earliest and leaves the latest. She’s willing to listen and cover all the holes. She’s a great communicator. No matter the priest, or a huge wedding party or vendors, girls or kids, everyone loves Ani. She’s very patient. You just love her and thank God she’s there for you. She cheers for you and feels every moment of your big day. If you picture your wedding like all the movies full of romance and fairy tales, then you must have a wedding planner, you must have Ani. Because the real wedding is like a war, you have many things to do but you cannot do on your own, you don’t get enough sleep, you cannot have enough time talk to everyone you want to, there is so much crisis you have to deal with, you plan so well but everything still goes wrong. People could easier get frustrated and even a nervous breakdown for the mixed emotions of the wedding day, happiness, sadness, or you are touched, or you miss the people who cannot be there to share. The wedding day is hard, as beautiful as it could be, but I learned the lesson from my engagement party that I will have a wedding planner for my party. A year and half of preparation for this big day, it has to be perfect. Then, I have Ani and I am so thrilled I found her, she contributed so much to my perfect day. I walked into the reception and everything was exactly I wanted. She just knows, without too much explanation, without the back and forth. If you want to have regrets and more enjoyment for the biggest day of your life, then contact Ani. Her value is priceless.

Novaoriginal Events was the event designer for my wedding last year. I had seen pictures of her work and decided to trust her with the most important day of my life. From the décor to the flowers to the lighting to the cake, even the dinner menus, it was more than I could have even imagined. She planned every detail which took alot of stress off me! She took my vision and turned it into such a flawless luxury event my family is still raving about it. She was very warm and professional and responsive to what I wanted. So of course I turned to her again to design my baby shower this past July. Again it was a gorgeous 5 star event beyond my expectations. I would recommend her for any event. See my pics below! I'm still in awe.

Lamide was hired in January to assist me in coordinating my June nuptial. Regretfully I had to cancel my wedding however through the process Lamide was an absolute God sent she took over the role of assisting me in returning a lot of the items that we had purchased for the wedding. She did not hesitate in keeping in contact to make sure I was okay. Prior to me calling off my wedding Lamide was instrumental in me getting great deals on my linens and decor I had to purchase. She kept me informed on great decoration options based on her understanding of my vision for the wedding. I will highly recommend her and will definitely reach out to her if I even plan on having another event.

I Used Michelle for my day of planning for my wedding and her service on the day of the wedding was worth every cent! She calmed my nerves, made sure all my bridal party was were they were supposed to be and organized everything to a tee! I couldn't have asked for a better right hand girl for my wedding day. Anyone who thinks they don't need a coordinator think again it saves your wedding day! I'd recommend Michelle to anyone! Thank you for making my day go smoothly!

I decided to get an wedding planner because i assume they know how to talk to this venue places. I was reccommended by my friend who worked with k.f.events. When we first started speaking and meeting she gave me a few different options of venue, but my heart was set on the Chateau. I dont how she did it but they was able to give me a better price and we immediately booked the venue. my wedding was amazing. she had send me this link to write a review and with honor ill write a review.

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.
