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.

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!

Words can't express our gratitude for Stephanie and her entire staff. Without Stephanie there would have been no wedding (lol) or at least it felt that way. The entire planning process from beginning to end was so smooth. Stephanie is EXTREMELY ORGANIZED and had every little detail covered. She was very professional and easily accommodated all of our special request. Her attention to detail is impeccable and took great concern with following through each one. She listened to us and made our vision come to life. Stephanie was patient and accommodating through all the hiccups along the way and we are eternally grateful to her. The night before the wedding July 2, 2016 one of our vendors unfortunately did not come through as expected but Stephanie and her team were able to still pull it through. That night Around 11:30 pm I realized that I had forgotten to give Stephanie some items for our early wedding that following morning. She was already on her way to venue sorting out the details and resolving the mishap of our vendors but yet she turned around ,came to my house and picked the items up from me. I was already impressed by Stephanie thus far but when she did that it solidified that we picked the right wedding planner. She is thoughtful of her clients and she went the extra mile to check up on us not because we hired her but it was her genuine acts of kindness and thoughtfulness. We felt so confident we made the right choice of picking Mariage Blanc to partake in our wedding festivities. Stephanie in the process of helping us plan our wedding became more like family to us. For example after our meeting was clearly done she would stay late into the night helping us sort out details going over issues and call almost everyday to find out how we were personally doing and how we were preparing for the big day. She would offer words of comfort to both Sam and I but in particular to me as the nervous bride. Her hard work ethnic is one that surpasses what we and our family have seen. If we could get married all over again without a doubt we would share that day again and the wedding prep process with the entire Mariage Blanc Designs.Thank you and may God continue to bless you all. Can't wait to do the 5 year vow renewals!!! Love Erica and Sam

The luckiest part to have a good wedding is to find the right wedding planner. Ani is the one that you cannot miss. A good friend can try to assist you for the day and the plan, but sometimes more help or ideas you get and the busier you get because most people do not know about a wedding. Ani is the one who will turn to be your best friend and think in your shoes, at the same time, she knows what she’s doing and making everything goes as smooth as you can imagine. Ani is smart, sharp, calm, warm-hearted, and sweet. She gives you the peaceful mind that nothing will go wrong because she’s around to help you all she can. She gets things done and is always on top of her game. She’s punctuate and professional. She’s also creative to make your wedding unique and special. She’s flexible for anything you ask for the wedding. So many things could go out of expectations. And there you have Ani who comes the earliest and leaves the latest. She’s willing to listen and cover all the holes. She’s a great communicator. No matter the priest, or a huge wedding party or vendors, girls or kids, everyone loves Ani. She’s very patient. You just love her and thank God she’s there for you. She cheers for you and feels every moment of your big day. If you picture your wedding like all the movies full of romance and fairy tales, then you must have a wedding planner, you must have Ani. Because the real wedding is like a war, you have many things to do but you cannot do on your own, you don’t get enough sleep, you cannot have enough time talk to everyone you want to, there is so much crisis you have to deal with, you plan so well but everything still goes wrong. People could easier get frustrated and even a nervous breakdown for the mixed emotions of the wedding day, happiness, sadness, or you are touched, or you miss the people who cannot be there to share. The wedding day is hard, as beautiful as it could be, but I learned the lesson from my engagement party that I will have a wedding planner for my party. A year and half of preparation for this big day, it has to be perfect. Then, I have Ani and I am so thrilled I found her, she contributed so much to my perfect day. I walked into the reception and everything was exactly I wanted. She just knows, without too much explanation, without the back and forth. If you want to have regrets and more enjoyment for the biggest day of your life, then contact Ani. Her value is priceless.

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!!!

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'm not even sure how to begin with this review - all I can say is that Michelle is absolutely the best. She *made* my wedding day. She was on top of every single little detail that I would have never thought of. She was in touch with all the vendors leading up to the big day, and helped manage all of the chaos on the day of. Michelle is incredibly organized, thoughtful, and a pleasure to work with. She had an assistant, Sarah, with her on the day of and between the two of them it felt like they were moving mountains to make sure everything went smoothly. Having to manage a Nigerian wedding is no easy task, but they were absolute champs. I am incredibly grateful for everything they did for us. I remember when I started wedding planning a friend told me that having a DOC was a non-negotiable and she was totally right. Working with Michelle was the best decision I made in terms of my wedding. I also got a great deal on my limo with her (her dad owns Action Limo!) and they are an awesome pair to work with. I recommend her enthusiastically!!!

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.

    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.
