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.

I had David design a logo as a wedding gift to friends of mine. David was very responsive and worked well over email, which made it easy to get the work done. Plus the logo looks great! He also got it to me in the formats I requested.

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 :)

Cariamas was absolutely amazing! We hired them for our wedding as bartenders and party hosts. They seamlessly kept everything moving and the wedding flow perfect! They took care of little things (like making sure everything was clean and tidy!) and bigger things- like keeping the bar flowing so there was never a line! I was very impressed with all of them and would hire them again in an instant!! Especially since our wedding was at an untraditional venue (summer camp)- they helped make this day truly spectacular! Thank you!

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

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

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!

Dear Kate, It’s quite difficult to put into words just how grateful we are to you and just how valuable you were during the entire wedding & planning process. I will do my best! From the moment we connected I had zero doubt that you would be the most important addition to our vendor squad but even then it seemed like somewhat of a luxury vs. necessity. I was wrong. After we chose our venue, I remember you asking me if we still neeed you. The venue seemed to provide everything one would need as far as timeline and coordinating for our big day. I wasn’t about to let you go that easy! I knew I would still need someone there as Rob and I’s advocate for the day. Wasn’t that the truth?! During the process, you were always available. Whether to answer questions or even just to expose me to the wonderful and addicting world of wedding podcasts 😂 game changing, btw. You tolerated my “spreadsheets within spreadsheets”, maybe slightly unnecessary micromanaging haha (?) In the short weeks prior it was CRYSTAL CLEAR that you were irreplaceable. When I saw you had reached out to all our vendors to establish yourself as their point person, that alone was such a big deal to me. The day I got that email, I was running a fever and feeling like it was the worst time to fall ill. With so much to do and so many people to be following up with, I was feeling so flustered. What a relief it was to know you had it handled. This brings me to the day of our rehearsal. The wedding venue, essentially a wedding factory, that we thought had a handle on EVERYTHING, didn’t even have their coordinator there to be present for the rehearsal?!!! The owner had no idea who anyone was and anything that was discussed as far as our vision for the evening. Thank God for you. You took charge as planned and did not let the owner boss you around. You stood up for us and made sure our wedding was exactly as we’d planned. YOU made sure we had a rain plan, thankfully not needed but it definitely came close!! The day of... oh boy. YOU made sure our families were taken care of. YOU fed the band when the venue would not! As rude as the venue was to you and our vendors, YOU handled everything with style and grace. YOU kept me calm with your cool, collected, fabulous self. Everyone in the bridal party, family, and our vendors were so impressed with you. By the end of the night (I apologize for this!) I literally did not want to let you go. No one played a more crucial role in our perfect beautiful incredible happy day than YOU. There is so much more that I’m sure you took care of that we will never even know about. We are eternally grateful. I hope to have to honor of recommending you to any future bride. With love and gratitude, Steph & Rob

I could not have been more impressed by Sheetal. She is incredibly professional, talented and hardworking. I have never encountered anything like the amazing balloon creations that she made for my daughter's Halloween party and all of my guests were in awe. She has amazingly creative ideas and can bring any inspiration to life. While her balloon talent is unreal, she also assembled a beautiful fabric backdrop/focal wall and a printed sign - she does it all! She spent so much time planning the details with me and even created a portfolio proposal with an array of options for me to choose from. She staked out my venue and liaised directly with their team so that everything would be planned meticulously in advance and perfectly executed (no last minute surprises!). She even helped me to select party supplies so that everything would be coordinated. On top of being extremely talented and professional, Sheetal could not be more sweet. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and I am trying to think of another party to throw just so I can hire her again! I very highly recommend Sheetal for any event!!!

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.

Novaoriginal Events was the event designer for my wedding last year. I had seen pictures of her work and decided to trust her with the most important day of my life. From the décor to the flowers to the lighting to the cake, even the dinner menus, it was more than I could have even imagined. She planned every detail which took alot of stress off me! She took my vision and turned it into such a flawless luxury event my family is still raving about it. She was very warm and professional and responsive to what I wanted. So of course I turned to her again to design my baby shower this past July. Again it was a gorgeous 5 star event beyond my expectations. I would recommend her for any event. See my pics below! I'm still in awe.

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!

First off ours wasn't a typical event. My son was married last year in Seattle and this was the NJ celebration for all those who couldn't make the trip. Second, I contacted Marcia exactly a month prior to the date. Not much time at all. And I had never worked with a planner before so I wasn't sure what to expect. Third, other than centerpieces and favors they had no clue what they wanted and Marcia helped me pull ideas together. The number of changes that took place in the last 5 days alone - people dropping out, people deciding to attend, a change of the entire floor plan which meant moving the DJ and changing table numbers - was making me crazy but she kept telling me it would be ok. On the day of while setting up our wine bottle centerpieces she realized we hadn't sent enough flowers and still managed to improvise and make everything beatiful. Because they wanted open seating I wanted to reserve 6 tables for family. She not only greeted all our guests (because we were arriving later) but also managed to pull off the reserved tables with a list of names to seat at those tables. When we arrived everything was perfect, everyone loved it. I was able to just enjoy our friends and family and have a good time celebrating without any worries. When the party was ending she and Amanda were very quickly breaking down and packing up everything that would come back to me. This review was long because I wanted to get across how much she did in just one month. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a party planner, wedding planner, decorator. You'll be happy you did.

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.

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.
