Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does a wedding planner cost per hour?

On average, wedding planners charge $80 for their services. However, rates can range from roughly $50 per hour to $100 per hour, or even more than $300 per hour.

To find out how much it will cost to hire a wedding planner, request cost estimates from a few in your area. Also, keep in mind that some wedding planners may have flat fees instead of hourly rates.

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.

What does a wedding coordinator do?

A wedding coordinator is involved in the wedding planning process, but some coordinators focus on the day-of activities and schedule. These professionals are sometimes referred to as “day-of wedding coordinators.” They make sure your wedding starts on time, the vendors are there and everything runs smoothly. Essentially, they are your point person. And they can help minimize the stress (and jitters) brides and grooms may experience when throwing a wedding. 

Is a wedding planner worth the cost?

Hiring a wedding planner can be worth the cost if you want to minimize your stress and save yourself time. Let’s be real — planning a wedding is a lot of work. You have to figure out a budget, shop around for vendors (DJs, bands, florists, caterers, chefs, photographers, videographers, etc.), negotiate contracts, book appointments and so much more. 

If you’re not interested in planning a wedding all on your own, consider hiring a wedding planner — especially if you have the budget.

What do wedding planners do?

Wedding planners do exactly what their job titles indicate — they plan your entire wedding and handle the logistics. For example, they will: 

  • Identify the best DJs, caterers, florists, photographers and other vendors for your wedding.
  • Help negotiate and set up contracts with your vendors. 
  • Keep track of your budget and spending.
  • Make sure that everything runs smoothly on your wedding day.

In some cases, you might need to hire a separate wedding designer to handle the styling services or a wedding coordinator to oversee the schedule and activities the day of your wedding.

Reviews for Las Vegas wedding planners

We hired Rachael as our wedding planner the summer before our wedding. She planned and executed our dream wedding in six months. We got married on January 13 at the Las Vegas golf club and the day went smoothly thanks to Rachael. Rachael is very well organized and very knowledgeable about the wedding industry. I requested that our wedding be simple but still be nice for our guest to enjoy celebrating with us. She managed to give me a simple, elegant wedding on an extremely tight budget. I would not have been able to pull it off on my own. Having a wedding planner to coordinate on the day of the wedding was priceless. I was able to enjoy my day with my guest and let Rachael worry about all the little details. I would fully recommend hiring Rachael as your wedding planner!!! Joe and Shelly (1/13/18)

I hired Jessica to be my day-of wedding coordinator/planner for my destination wedding in Las Vegas, and boy did she go above and beyond. I seriously can't believe how much she did for me during the planning process, even though I didn't hire or pay her for it. She is definitely meant to be a wedding planner, and that is coming from someone who is very picky and expects a lot when it comes to these sort of things since I am a perfectionist when it comes to party planning. She would get back to me super fast when I had a question or concern, and I had TONS. A few days before the wedding, I had a couple things that were sort of thrown into the mix and made me panic, but one phone call from her, and all was figured out and I was put to ease. She made my wedding the wedding of my dreams and also made it the best wedding a lot of my guests said they have ever been to! I just can't thank her enough for everything. I'm going to miss planning my wedding with her because she made it so much fun for me. I wish she lived in Ohio so she could help me plan every party I throw! If you want to have a wedding that you and your guests will remember (in a good way) for the rest of your lives, hire Jess! You will be so happy that you did, I promise!

We hired Pro Party Planners for our wedding planning, coordination, and decorating services and truly could not have asked for a better, more positive, or more seamless experience. Leading up to our wedding, Tiffany was very diligent and consistent in following up with planning items to make sure everything was on track for our big day. Pro Party Planners also recommended some great vendors whom we also ended up hiring for our event. Tiffany coordinated and planned everything with all of our vendors which gave us the freedom to focus on other things and gave us peace of mind. Wedding planning is stressful, so this was a huge help! Finally, Tiffany truly knows her stuff when it comes to decorating. My husband and I were astounded by how terrific everything looked on wedding day. You could tell the amount of time and thought that went into every aspect of the decorating and it honestly couldn’t have looked any better. We were getting compliments from our guests on the centerpieces all night! Tiffany was cognizant and mindful of our budget and was able to keep all of the decorating within a price point we felt comfortable with while also keeping everything consistent with our vision and looking elegant/beautiful. Personally, Tiffany was such a kind, caring, and attentive person and you can tell she truly cares about her work and making everything perfect for her clients. We could not recommend Pro Party Planners more and hope to use them again in the future. We truly could not have pulled off our big day with out them.
