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!

Everything was great. So glad we chose Dayna's Party Rentals! They were on time, and kept in touch days before the event (my wedding) to make sure everything went smoothly.

Stephanie was a great wedding planner for my 2015 destination wedding. She found a place in Winter Park Florida which sat right next to the water and was very picturesque and beautiful. She arranged everything from the 1942 convertible Cadillac request to the decor at the ceremony site and the reception. Very beautiful. My family was so impressed with her work. Now, after seeing Stephanie's work, my daughter is using Everything is an Event for her wedding this year July 2017!

Lisa is great! We hired her for the "Marry Me on a megabus" wedding and she was phenomenal. She made the couple's big day so special. Here's a press mention from the wedding: http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Married-on-a-Megabus-Lucky-Couple-Wins-Wedding-Contest-439944633.html

Hiring Cody for my wedding day-of coordinating and set-up was the best thing I could have done. Even though we didn’t meet face-to-face until the day, we spent plenty of time talking on the phone, emailing, and even texting (last minute weather crisis day before). I 100% trusted her judgement, decisions, and opinions when it came to my set-up. Even though we got married in Chester County, PA, she was willing to travel. In addition to her professional attitude and overall sweet and helpful outlook, she had to put up with a Type A, obsessively organized bride! I shared a Google Doc with her of all the things that had to get done on the day of, where I wanted things, and descriptions of what my vision entailed, down to how I wanted the cocktail tables set up. Cody never batted an eye (even though many of my friends and family called me slightly insane), and she wasn’t offended that I was so hands-on, even though I wasn’t going to be the one setting up. The Thursday before my Saturday weather, the weather really decided to get nasty and wet, so I ended up texting her at 7:30 in the morning freaking out about not having an indoor ceremony decor plan. Not only did she send me screenshots of stuff she thought I might like/buy/make, but as it turned out, she Amazon primed all the materials to her house and built a ceremony backdrop that I loved, including twinkling lights! My DJ also provided a day-of coordinator, and there weren’t any “power struggles” (that I’m aware of!) like you hear if you hire your own vendors. Cody did a phenomenal job setting up everything in the span of time she had. I’m so grateful I found her and decide to contract her services! Contact her now - her services were so affordable, and she had different "packages" to help us stay in budget!

    Melissa is the BEST! She has done my makeup for several events including Halloween. Since I never wore makeup I could barely apply foundation. She took the time to teach me how to apply makeup for an everyday, natural look. She’s always on time, professional, organized and extremely creative. For this reason I wouldn’t think of having anyone else do my makeup for my upcoming wedding. I highly recommend her services.

    Lauren was a godsend when planning our wedding. I was a clueless bride to be not quite sure what was needed, how to do anything, timelines what were they? She was exactly what we needed when wrangling vendors, hunting for decorations and giving some amazing ideas to make our wedding have its own little uniqueness to it. I would talk to Lauren at least three times a week months before the big day and more frequently as the day got closer. She would check in with us, following up to ensure that we were on task. (Something that we needed.) Lauren would go beyond what the typical planner would do and actually helped make alot of the decorations herself to help us stay within our tight budget. Her ideas were exactly what I was envisioning for our rustic themed fall wedding from the wheat sheath centerpiece to the barndoors and wine barrel decorations. Absolutely beautiful! She also reached out to our vendors, ensuring that they were on top of their tasks–including providing certificates of insurance and final balances. During the week of the wedding, I’m sure we talked to Lauren more than I spoke to anyone else including family. Lol. Lauren created a timeline and revised it with us as necessary. She followed up with all of our vendors, making sure they knew where to go and when. She told all of the vendors to go through her for those pesky last-minute questions. She kept us very relaxed, and made sure that major and minor details were not forgotten! The day before the reception lauren had her amazing team (friends and family) make sure that all of the reception decor (that she had made herself, almost everything...everything!!) was brought to the venue, and that it all arrived in one piece. Spent hours setting up and making sure that all the decor was put in the right place and was PERFECT! If there was a crisis, I can tell you I know nothing of it. She coordinated the clean-up of the venue, at the end of the night and made sure nothing was left behind. She did all of this while remaining calm with a big smile on her face. I can not say nicer things about her! My wedding day would not have been as amazing as it was with out her...no where near it! I probably would have lost my mind f I had to do all of this by myself. So if you are looking for a wedding planner, party planner, or someone to help you with ideas she is your girl and you will not regret it. FabYouBliss saved my sanity and made my day perfect! Let her do the same for you. Thank you so much lauren!

      Celebrations by Vivian was the secret weapon to planning my wedding in May 2010. Without her expertise, contacts, and style, I couldn't imagine how we would've made it happen.The ceremony was gorgeous and the reception was perfect. Everyone left taking a piece of the romantic paradise we wanted to share. She took the time and really seemed to care about what I wanted but also gave advice and suggested ideas that I loved. Her contact list was phenomenal, and she seemed to have the perfect vendor, florist, dj, seamstress, or any other service that I needed. I would recommend her services to anyone planning a wedding or any party or get together. She is that special touch that any event needs to make it a successful, coordinated, gala, not a stressful nightmare. Celebrations by Vivian was my own little secret for success!!

      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.
