Vesta is the best make up artist i've ever encountered. She did an awesome trial for my wedding which also happened to be the day of my bridal shower. My guests were in awe of how beautiful I looked. Furthermore, on the day of my wedding Vesta travelled to my home and did a phenomenal job on my mother, one of my bridesmaids, and of course myself. All of pictures were flawless for my wedding and it is in large part due to Vesta's brilliance as it relates to her craft. I would not hesitate to use her again in the very near future..

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 hired Mary as a hair and make up artist for my wedding. Mary traveled to the hotel that we were getting ready in (which was quite small and chaotic with so many girls inside) and jumped right in, creating amazing hair for my family and bridesmaids. By the end of the afternoon, all my friends that were staying in the hotel wanted Mary to do their hair! Mary was truly wonderful and such a calming presence on my wedding day. We had people stopping my bridal party and me on the street to take pictures of our hair and make up- it was that good! I would absolutely recommend Mary/M.A.D.EUP to anyone and everyone looking for a beautiful, unique style. Mary was the best!

Ochanya is absolutely amazing! She provided hair and makeup for a styled wedding and the end result was stunningly beautiful. I sent Ochanya a couple “inspiration” photos, and she completely brought the look to life on the model. She is so talented with makeup application, and I simply can’t say enough about her skills. Highly recommend for any bride, and I can’t wait to work with her again.

If you ever need a right hand, Mom, bartender, coordinator, warm feeling... part of your family experience I suggest you take a second to talk to Nancy. If I could leave TEN STARS I really would. She was responsive and very caring. She came when she said that she would and it was no funny business. She truly shows her years of experience in everything she does from the moment you meet her. She was so willing to work with my budget and provided me with two wonderful young lady’s that were so professional and punctual. Nancy came prior to my wedding to make sure we had everything we needed. Then she came the day of my wedding early to make sure everything was running smoothly. And stayed until she felt that she could go home and come back. She then returned the time we had agreed upon, very punctual with two of the best servers I could have ask for. These ladies worked so hard let me tell you I couldn’t be happier. Nancy introduced me to them and let them know being the bride i should just relax and to come to anyone else but me. And that’s exactly how it went. My day felt without a hiccup without any real stress. I was able to enjoy and just sit back take care of all my family and friends, take pictures...even got to sit and eat. I come from a server background and I know AMAZING service when I see it. She will be be part of every event I ever have. #HAPPYBRIDE #AMAZING P.S. Once I have some pictures I will write another review on how much my family and friends loved her.

I hired Remi to do my makeup for a wedding I was a part of. She did a phenomenal job! Remi arrived on time for my appointment to go over details for my look, which I appreciated. My face was very elegantly done and had the perfect natural look I was going for. Remi was very personable and made sure I was happy with the results. I definitely will be using her for all my events. I recommend her to all!

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 is absolutely AMAZING!!! I hired We Make Fun for my wedding a couple weeks ago for decor, planning, and flowers and the day could not have been more perfect! :) Anastasiya cared just as much about my big day as I did. In the initial meeting I told her what I wanted, budget, concerns, etc. and she offered cost-saving options that were just as beautiful, provided suggestions we hadn't considered, made sure she understood my vision, and told me that everything would be fine... and it was more than fine! Over the past few months, we'd check-in with each other periodically, which made me even more comfortable. I'd ask her opinion, sent her updates, we toured the venue (she took measurements, photos, and contact info), and she would remind me about things to make sure we had everything we needed for the big day. A few days before the wedding, we sat down and combed through every single detail of the day in terms of timeline and we went over everything I ordered and where they would be, which she took with her so we didn't have to worry about transporting on the day of. The day before the wedding, Anastasiya met us at the venue for the rehearsal and orchestrated the entire plan for the line up and practiced when they would stop and smile to where they should sit/stand. That was the biggest weight lifted off of my shoulder because I had ZERO idea how that was all going to work. (I am forever grateful!) And the wedding was perfectly BEAUTIFUL. Things magically happened and changed as she and her team worked with my other vendors to make it all happen. I had the best damn day! :) & I walk away from this calling Anastasiya my friend! I love and adore her skills, personality, and thoroughness. I'd recommend this company to everyone any day! Wish I could rate higher than 5 stars!

It was great to get in touch with Deb and she was very excited and enthusiastic about working with me for my wedding! In the end, I decided to go with someone else but it was definitely a tough choice! Deb was a delight to talk to and seems very experienced in the field of event planning, design, and coordination!

We hired Bella to provide day of coordination at the last minute for our wedding in December. Her and her team did not disappoint! I was so overwhelmed with all of the details of my wedding and my 325 guest but Bella and her assistant covered everything and handled the coordination seamlessly. Excellent job!

Without Brittney our wedding would not have happened! Her help as our Day Of Coordinator ensured that every detail of the wedding was handled efficiently and perfectly. Knowing that Brittney was making sure that every vendor knew where to go and how to set our things up made it so much easier for us to focus on getting ready and enjoying our day. Once the wedding was under way she continued to keep everything and everyone running smoothly and made sure that every planned event went off without a hitch. Even though she wasn't acting as our wedding planner, she was always available to help answer any of our questions and offer her advice while we solidified our arrangements in the weeks leading up to the wedding. Her fun and positive attitude was so helpful in keeping us sane as well! I can't overstate enough how integral Brittney was to making our wedding as perfect as it was!

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.
