Chef Ellen was a pleasure to work with. She was very responsive and easy to deal with during the planning processes. At my event, her food was fantastic and her plating presentation was a delight! Many of my guests commented on how delicious and beautiful the food was. I look forward to hiring Chef Ellen again!

Nancy is phenomenal. We wish we had Nancy 24 hours a day. She definitely made me feel at ease and went far beyond bartending duties. I under estimated all that was needed to be done for our daughters Baptism but Nancy put an "S" on her chest and handled everything. We are planning another event soon an Nancy will be our go to person. This time we want her staff as well. Love you Nancy.

There are not enough stars here to credit MVP Productions. We recently hired Mike and his staff for a Fortune 500 corporate event.We provided him with the theme of the function, and some basic guidelines such as having karaoke and a variety of music for a diverse group of invitees. Mike listened and delivered on everything we asked for, and then some! He emceed, DJ’d, danced , and clearly kept the event going with high energy from start to finish. Mike played awesome music and had the ability to read the crowd to know when to switch gears to keep everyone entertained. Always the professional, he never turned away a request. The office is still talking about it !

Do you want to know the definition of Excellence? Hire Luisa c/o De Cicco's Event Planning! I have never worked with a more professional, friendly company. Luisa has a way of catering to her client's and making them feel like they're at the top of her priority list. If you need her, drop her an E-mail and she IMMEDIATELY gets back to you. Need a personal Chef to teach you how to cook? Luisa can connect you with top of the line quality professional's that KNOW what they're doing in the kitchen. I'm currently taking lesson's from her Chef and I went from being a novice who's food was either bland, burnt and completely un-edible, to a person who can now chop, dice and make a meal so good, my family calls me asking me to cook for them again. Luisa and her staff are so friendly, so welcoming and very attentive to the needs of the client. Luisa has done a fine job in picking her staff and I’m extremely happy I hired her company because it was worth every penny.

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.

Chef Melissa was incredible! I hired her for my sister’s bachelorette party and my mind was blown with the level of service and true value of what I had booked as a surprise for everyone. She had such high attention to detail and truly cared about making it a special surprise for my sister, bringing all of her favorite things into a central theme (including her favorite flowers on the tablescape and a ton of Disney touches across the board that she went out of her way to pick up). Her food was out of this world and everyone really enjoyed it. Would HIGHLY recommend to hire Melissa if you’re looking for someone to go above and beyond!!

We hired 2 bartenders to serve drinks (beer, wine & 2 specialty cocktails) for a corporate happy hour. The staff was very helpful, friendly and professional. And the drinks were great! Staff was also very helpful with planning the event at the last minute. We would definitely hire them again!

This was my first time working with a caterer for a private event. Peter's menu was unique and fresh for the summer, and everyone was really happy with it. He was awesome to work with and extremely flexible in changing the items of the menu from our first event to the next. He also took note of our VIP clientele and ensured that everything was top notch. Would definitely recommend him for any event going forward!

Anna came for my grandfather's 90th birthday party today and we couldn't be happier with her performance! She had the crowd going, all ages from 13 years old to 90! She was very professional and knew how to show everyone a clean, fun time. I would highly recommend her for any event and would use her again for our next party! Thanks again Anna!

Jessica and her team made a special family-hosted event even more special. It was all put together in under a week and she helped us to make it happen. I cannot say enough about how professional and personable and just plain wonderful they were from start to finish, and I mean from the first contact for pre-planning, for the actual event itself, and until the last moment of clean-up. PERFECT. I continue to hear from guests at the gathering who were impressed by the servers. I recommend JLS and her team without any hesitation. Thank you JLS!!

Bella was so amazing during the entire wedding planning process! She was always professional and helpful! Bella was very flexible with our planning needs and attentive to our many details. Bella provided an awesome checklist and timeline for the wedding to make sure we stayed on track. She also was very helpful with contacting/confirming vendors before the day of the wedding. It was such a relief knowing that my wedding was in such good hands and it took a lot of the stress out of planning! I would definitely recommend her & her team.

I don’t usually dole out 5 star ratings but it is well deserved here! Eleni was a monumental part of planning my son’s first birthday party. It was a football themed party for approximately 100 people. Despite some challenges with vendors, Eleni out did herself with planning and decorating the space, in addition to making and setting up the items for the dessert table! Everyone loved it and I received so many compliments! Eleni was a pleasure to work with, she was super responsive and always kept in touch with updates (no matter what time of the day or night) I am especially grateful to have had her by my side throughout the event to give me gentle reminders to keep us on schedule with my specific timeline! Eleni’s event planning services are reasonable and I would highly recommend her for any event planning, decorating and dessert table needs! I cannot thank her enough for the excellent job! Shami

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!

Lauren and Justine made not only the day of the wedding run without any faults, but also the weeks leading up to it. From the first planning meeting with Lauren, it was evident to me that the wedding was in superbly capable hands. She took over communication with the vendors and confirmed every single moving part of the wedding to create a master schedule, and then check in every step of the way to be sure that everyone was aware of the scheduling and to get live updates on the status of the schedule. Her organization made it simple for us to understand what tasks we had left to do and clearly showed a plan to execute all outstanding items. I wasn't worried about forgetting any details because I knew Lauren had them all handled and would also check all of them with us while adding her experienced suggestions. On the day of the wedding, Lauren and Justine went beyond my imagination in how proactive, cheerful, helpful, and all around amazing they were. Lauren cued each parent and bridesmaid when to walk down the aisle in the ceremony. Justine communicated with our reception venue and helped set it up while the ceremony was ongoing. At the end of the night, Justine was able to pack up all items and make sure everything we needed to return to us got back to us that evening safely. There was no stress in either getting what we needed to the venue or taking everything back home. Due to Lauren's organization with her pack lists prior to the wedding and Justine's meticulousness, there was nothing in question for us. Hiring Lauren was our best wedding decision - we can't have imagined our day running so seamlessly without her and her team. Any prospective couples out there should get their dates on Lauren's calendar and rest assured that their day will run perfectly. We had the most magical day, and not once were we concerned about any planning details. Our vendors, bridal party, and guests noted how organized and smooth the event ran, all thanks to YWbL!

I worked with Nya and Team on my sons first birthday party. They helped with finding the right venue, logistics and coordination. They always were there to help with questions I had which were outside of their scope of work. Would definitely recommend them for Event Planning, Decor and Coordination.

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.
