Ellen Deluise catered a wedding reception for me for 150 people. I selected a traditional menu but Ellen provided several other menu options to choose from. She was very professional, easy to work with and was quick to respond to phone calls. The quality of the food and presentation were excellent. I would definitely hire her again in the future.

So thankful we went to this company. Other vendors from my wedding were a complete disaster and she was just so sweet. Everyone loved the photo booth!

We worked with Katherine Fonsella from DeCicco events and cuisine and she was WONDERFUL. We were planning a pre-wedding dinner for about 100 people in the Tarrytown area, but we live in Northern California. We did not know any venues or caterers or suppliers. Katherine helped us find a great, unusual loft venue, arranged all the decor, tables, lighting, and set up the catering from DeCiccos. The staff were excellent, the food was very good, everything went off perfectly. We are so appreciative of all that Katherine did to make our event wonderful!

I've had the pleasure to work with We Make Fun event company and Anastasiya for my recent wedding. Not only was Anastasiya caring, approachable and understanding she was also very professional, polished and sophisticated. This truly reflected in her work and I felt very comfortable with her style/suggestions. She's a fast thinker and multitasker yet makes it look so easy/graceful. If you're planning a wedding (or any event) she should be the first person you contact for planning and/or day of coordination. I highly recommend and suggest you get her on your team asap!

I'm working with Adrienn to alter my wedding dress. I'm planning to wear my Mom's dress but have the long sleeves and turtleneck turned into a jacket. Walking into the shop I knew right away Adrienn is extremely talented, the samples of her work are beautiful! But the level of creativity and enthusiasm she had when I told her what I wanted to do definitely confirmed I was in the right place! She is working hard now but I'll definitely share the finished product :)

Peter has taken the wedding party for my son, Michael and his wife, Fate, to a highest level that anyone could ever imagine. He paid attention to all details from the moment he walked into our house to set up the food stations, the bar stations and the kitchen where he and Jennifer, his assistant, worked. The food he cooked were very creative and beautiful and his staffs were so good in learning how to say the names of our Vietnamese and Filipino food. I strongly recommend Peter to any parties, whether for a wedding event, or home dinner. Thank you, Peter, you are the greatest (may be Momofuku should pay attention to the next Pork Belly bun with Kim Chi). Best regards, Kim

I hired J and L Event Services for my wedding. They were there for 11 hours and did everything possible to keep everyone there happy. They were so helpful in every aspect, and truly cared about their work and the success of my event. They continually went above and beyond, and took pride in their work. Everyone at my event was impressed with the hard work this crew did. I can't thank them enough for everything!!! They made our day beyond perfect!

Brittney was one of the best things at my wedding. I genuinely do not know how I could have gotten through my wedding day without her. Not only is she an incredibly lovely person but she amazing at wedding planning. Starting 8 weeks before Brittney provided me with several helpful resources she has on hand as a checklist for small little details that we hadn’t thought of. After sharing all my vendor contracts she read through them and highlighted all the details that I missed and helped me amend the hours for some where I would have missed out due to the gap between my reception and my ceremony. She also started working towards providing a thorough detailed timeline and contacted every vendor for start times and contact info to add to timeline. She literally made my wedding day the most relaxing enjoyable day of my life and I am forever grateful. Thank you Brittney!

We can't say enough great things about Stephanie. She was a true life saver from day one. Stephanie was very accessible and responded with lightening speed to emails/calls/texts at all different hours. She was always professional and friendly and gave great advice. Stephanie definitely has an eye for style and worked great with all of our wedding vendors. My wedding planning experience became stress-free once Stephanie came on board. I recommend her to any bride-to-be or anyone planning an event. We look forward to working with her in the future!

My fiancé and I are working with Germaine for our wedding next summer. Working with her has been absolutely amazing. Our favorite quality about Germaine is how passionate she is about the work she does. She has a background and love for production, as well as experience and talent as a chef. This combination makes her such an awesome planner. My fiancé and I will be getting married being recent college grads, so our budget was definitely limited, but Germaine has been working with us to make sure we still have a quality and beautiful wedding that fits within our budget. She has many connections with all the different vendors she works with, and truly makes it so that your wedding planning process is fully stress-free. She is extremely professional and holds herself to a high standards, and on a personal level is so kind and personable. I truly hope others get to experience her amazing work both as a full service planner and as a chef!

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.

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.

It was a pleasure working with Lamide. We had her on-board as our wedding day coordinator. My first priority was to be able to relax and enjoy as much as possible on the wedding day. There isn't anyway that is possible without a good coordinator. The work/ tasks/ demands involved, can be too much to ask for a friend to keep up and do. Lamide was prompt with responses throughout the process leading up to the big day. She tighten up knots that needed tightening; she made sure what you wanted accomplished will be met on the day. For example, I had a mini-polariod booth for guests and there were not many who were aware of it and had taken advantage of it during cocktail hour. Without our awareness of it, she made a point of communicating with the DJ to make an announcement about it to the guests and our photographer got busy! We are grateful and glad we had her. If you're looking for someone to make sure things are done and that those knots are tight, please hire Lamide.

SO, I always dreamed of having my wedding at the Chateau Briand in long island and when i called they gave me this ridiculous price for the day. I decided to get an wedding planner because i assume they know how to talk to this venue places. I was reccommended by my friend who worked with k.f.events. When we first started speaking and meeting she gave me a few different options of venue, but my heart was set on the Chateau. I dont how she did it but they was able to give me a better price and we immediately booked the venue. my wedding was amazing. she had send me this link to write a review and with honor ill write a review.

Alanna designed the wedding and bridal shower invitations for my daughters wedding. They were wonderful! You can tell by Alanna’s work that she puts a lot of care and detail into it. The invitations looked high end, and delicate, and right according to the theme of my daughters wedding. Cannot wait for the baby shower invitations!

    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.
