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!!!

Anastasiya and her team was the best wedding planner I could of found. Anastasiya helped me to the extreme and work with my budget as much as possible , always stayed on top of everything and made sure i didn't forget a single thing. On my wedding day I was able to breathe and enjoy everything because Anastasiya and her assistant had everything completely covered. Thank you so much from both my husband and I for all the help and beutiful decorations that made my day , will recommend to friends and family and will definitely use Make Fun Events on future events.

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.

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!

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! Wish you all the best, Deb :)

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

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.

Spoke with Shannon, she is so compassionate about making the wedding day perfect. She asked questions and shows very much that she would be there for me with anything I need. I can’t wait to work with her on my wedding day! I booked with her quickly because she is a jewel I couldn’t let get away! I’ll send another review after wedding ❤️ Chrystal

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.

Working with Kellie was a great experience. I shared with her my vision for our wedding invitation and she nailed it. Adding on the envelope addressing was a lifesaver and all of our guests were impressed with the total package. Will definitely work with her again. Thank you!

What makes Veronica unique is her absolutely amazing personality. She exhibited nothing but patience, kindness, and absolute professionalism when we worked with her for our wedding. We instantly clicked after we spoke with her over the phone once. I knew that she was someone I can trust to make our wedding day memorable. I would highly recommend her to anyone planning their wedding! She will work with your budget whether big or small and not skimp on the details! I can't say enough great things about her. If you're on the fence about hiring a wedding planner, I can speak from experience in saying that it is worth the piece of mind to have a genuine professional take the stress off your hands :)

I Used Michelle for my day of planning for my wedding and her service on the day of the wedding was worth every cent! She calmed my nerves, made sure all my bridal party was were they were supposed to be and organized everything to a tee! I couldn't have asked for a better right hand girl for my wedding day. Anyone who thinks they don't need a coordinator think again it saves your wedding day! I'd recommend Michelle to anyone! Thank you for making my day go smoothly!

Words cannot express my gratitude for the Enchanted Allure Events team. My wedding was something out of a magazine! It was the PERFECT wedding and it's all because of them. I came to them with my plans/ideas and some were already completed and they worked their magic and brought it to life. If you think you don't need a wedding planner, think again because details I would had never thought of they were already on it. All the calls to vendors right before to confirm were all out of my hands which allowed me to be a stress free bride. Melissa is like a design genius! It's like she was reading my mind!! I loved everything she came up with! She respected my input and added her special designer eye to my ideas. The day of the wedding ran so smoothly in the short notice she had to pick up all my plans and make them that much more special. Thank you Enchanted Allure Events!

May I begin by saying this lady right here does it all . Not only does she organize parties, she bakes , decorates , and she is also a MC. She literally made my baby shower worth wild within a budget . She isn’t money hungry at all . I told her what my budget was, gave her my ideas, she also added her own ideas which was great and of course since I had pregnancy brain at the time her input was beyond helpful . I don’t normally believe in party planners because I always have that “ I can do it myself “ attitude but when your actually sitting down and trying to get your thoughts together and u just have a brain fart, you become discouraged and then have that” I don’t even wanna have this event anymore “ you need someone like Dawn who keeps you stress free at all times . Again Dawn thank you so much for my beautiful baby shower . I will be contacting you back again for my wedding plans ( if i ever get married 😒😒)😂😂

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.
