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!

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.

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.

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.

Everything was AMAZING!!!! They did a fabulous job on my bridal party's hair and makeup. Everyone looked stunning and they were all happy with their makeovers (which never happens at a wedding!) They also made me look and feel like a princess and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect makeover for my wedding. Aleetha and her team are also super friendly, sweet and accommodating. Two thumbs up!!!!'

I hired Remi for my wedding and I loved her. I read a lot of great reviews about her,her professionalism,her personality and I have got everything I wanted on my Bid day. She came with her bag filled up with all necessary stuff to create a beauty! She is not just putting a make up, she adds all her heart to make it beautiful. And my hair,I have never thought they could be so wonderful. And it all lasted all day long. My step-daughter ,who is 14,also got her innocent beauty that day and she enjoyed it so much! Thank you,Remi,you are really a star in what you are doing. Don't hesitate to contact her if you want to look stunning! I definitely will once I have another important day in my life.

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!

Brittney is the dream planner/day-of coordinator to have. She is very passionate and considerate, and has rich experience in handling all aspects of a wedding. My wedding day events could not run more smoothly with her assistance. More importantly, she is a person with a great heart who cares about and connects well with people. I will definitely recommend her to anyone.

Dorothy was great!! I hired her to do hair and makeup for my wedding. During our makeup and hair trial, she was attentive, listening to what I wanted while giving me great advice (I don’t wear makeup period). I shared my opinions and feedback leading up to the day of (email and texts), and she nailed it! My hair and makeup was exactly what I wanted and PERFECT on my wedding day. She even traveled with me to the venue so she could pin my veil and floral hair comb into my hair and add finishing touches before First Look. Thank you so much, Dorothy!!

It was a pleasure working with Supreme event staffing. They were hired by me for a 25th semiformal Wedding Aniversary Celebration. They were involved in every intricate detail in the planning and execution of my event which turned out to be flawless. Not only did they successfully deliver everything as promised but their staff was punctual friendly and professional. They helped to make my event memorable. I would highly reccomend Supreme Event Staffing you will not be dissappointed.

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.
