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!

We hired them for my daughter’s first birthday party at a Clubhouse. The weather was horrible but they were still punctual. The kids loved the face painting and the cotton candy was a hit. They had fun with the balloon art too, but they seemed to pop easily. Between the two artists all of the kids present were taken care of in a timely fashion. I would definitely use them again! Great pricing compared to other companies for services provided.

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.

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!

I hired Platter Matters Catering for my 40th Birthday Party. Ivett did a phenomenal job planning the entire event! She took care of all the rentals and flower arrangements, too. Bernadett helped me create a custom menu(many allergies in the family). The staff was very friendly and professional. All of my guests raved about their food and service. My kitchen was left spottless at the end of the event. I highly recommend them!! Emily Westport, CT

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.

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

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!

We had a limited budget and less than a week to organize a business event for Approximately 50 people. Shawana pulled it off, providing excellent service and food in a very short window. Would highly recommend her and her company.

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.
