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.

First and foremost, I want to thank Ana for making my wedding a dream come true!! My husband and I could not be any happier with the results. We found Ana through Thumbtack. At first I was skeptical about hiring a wedding planner through a site that I am not familiar with. I soon contacted Ana and she was very welcoming. She asked me about my ideas of the wedding. What I wanted to include and not include in the wedding. She offered a lot of suggestions. She came up with PowerPoints of every detail and item you can imagine, from the color to the style of the item to the sizing. She is very professional and flexible. Ana met up with my husband and I few times throughout the whole wedding process to discuss about the decor of the venue. We would also have FaceTime meetings as well. She answers our questions and concerns quickly via email. Ana organized and coordinated our whole wedding day itinerary. She attended the wedding rehearsal to make sure everything and everyone knew what was going on. During the day of the wedding, Ana went above and beyond. I highly recommend Ana and her staff!! I would definitely hire her again for future events.

Christina was great! I can't even imagine what my wedding would have been like without her. She went above and beyond her job description. She was a pleasure to work with. Very professional, kind, and a take charge person. I felt very comfortable with her being there and running the event. I would definitely hire her again and recommend her to others. You will not be disappointed!

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

I had such an amazing time planning my wedding reception with Comfort Odubote,she is the absolute best,She's such a sweetheart, she went all out to make me happy, reply to all my texts and calls weather is was 3:30AM in the morning, when i was stress and frustrated she was so clam and all i remember her telling me was don't worry i will take care of it, i honestly couldn't have done it without Comfort Odubote, She made my dream wedding come through and not forgetting the amazing photographer and video guy that Comfort got for my wedding they did an outstanding job, the photographer and video guy stood by my side and didn't give me a chance to complain they were all such nice people, I strongly recommend KC Events, LLC company in a heart beat, words haven't been invented yet to tell you how happy and pleased i am with the way Comfort Odubote planned my wedding, i love you guys continue to shine and make more brides as happy as i am!!!

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!

I was looking for planners for my sister who is Orthodox Jewish and had very specific requirements around that, so we weren't able to hire Katie, but I wanted to note that she was the CONSUMMATE professional. She was very generous with her time and completely understanding and respectful of her needs. I could not have asked for a nicer interaction with someone I couldn't hire and had the circumstances been any different, I would have hired her in an instant. Where some wedding planners will be rude to you once they discover they don't meet your needs (I have interviewed several, between my own wedding and my sister's) Katie was kind and accommodating. I imagine it would be an absolute pleasure to work with her - and I got this read just off of our first interaction! I highly recommend her.

Valerie was very helpful in planning the wedding anniversary party we hosted at our apartment. She was especially good at helping us prepare the space on the day/night of the party and figuring out some last minute issues that needed to be addressed. Thanks Valerie!

I could not have been more impressed by Sheetal. She is incredibly professional, talented and hardworking. I have never encountered anything like the amazing balloon creations that she made for my daughter's Halloween party and all of my guests were in awe. She has amazingly creative ideas and can bring any inspiration to life. While her balloon talent is unreal, she also assembled a beautiful fabric backdrop/focal wall and a printed sign - she does it all! She spent so much time planning the details with me and even created a portfolio proposal with an array of options for me to choose from. She staked out my venue and liaised directly with their team so that everything would be planned meticulously in advance and perfectly executed (no last minute surprises!). She even helped me to select party supplies so that everything would be coordinated. On top of being extremely talented and professional, Sheetal could not be more sweet. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and I am trying to think of another party to throw just so I can hire her again! I very highly recommend Sheetal for any event!!!

I had to say that working with Vennissa of Scarlett Expressions was awesome, she did a very good work decorating two different location for my wedding both at the park and the indoor reception, everything was so beautiful and she went way beyond her duties, taking care of my guests and making sure everyone was seated properly and everything was set up the way i wanted it. I would strongly recommend her for any of your special events.

Celeste was a joy to work with. She took care of all the small details on the day of my wedding and made sure I could enjoy it fully. Whenever something was forgotten, or we needed someone to communicate between the bridal party and groomsmen (making sure the groom didn't see the bride!) Celeste stepped in to make sure everything was handled. I appreciated her calm and helpful presence. Thank you, Celeste!

I'm not even sure how to begin with this review - all I can say is that Michelle is absolutely the best. She *made* my wedding day. She was on top of every single little detail that I would have never thought of. She was in touch with all the vendors leading up to the big day, and helped manage all of the chaos on the day of. Michelle is incredibly organized, thoughtful, and a pleasure to work with. She had an assistant, Sarah, with her on the day of and between the two of them it felt like they were moving mountains to make sure everything went smoothly. Having to manage a Nigerian wedding is no easy task, but they were absolute champs. I am incredibly grateful for everything they did for us. I remember when I started wedding planning a friend told me that having a DOC was a non-negotiable and she was totally right. Working with Michelle was the best decision I made in terms of my wedding. I also got a great deal on my limo with her (her dad owns Action Limo!) and they are an awesome pair to work with. I recommend her enthusiastically!!!

I had an amazing experience with Loris. She was very attentive to my needs as a bride while planning my wedding and helped put me at ease amidst what would usually be a chaotic time. Very grateful for that. She was also flexible with my budget. On the day of she made sure everything went perfectly.

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.
