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.

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.

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!

I was planning a college graduation party for my son. I hired SOAR to assist with the planning and it was a great choice. Olamide, the owner was a pleasure to work with and a tremendous help. She is professional with a pleasant disposition. She has good time management, works well staying on top of the details, and kept me abreast of changes with the vendors and their contracts. She handles the small details very well and has an awesome way of making your vision for your party, come to fruition. I referred SOAR to a colleague while Olamide and I were working together for support planning her event, and highly recommend her to others. SOAR is my event planner of choice, going forward.

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.
