After 5 Events is the best!!! They helped make the best day of our lives even more special and beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Throughout our whole wedding planning process, Gabby was there to guide us and meet with vendors, consistently checked in with us, and was always there when we needed her to answer questions or offer suggestions. She helped make our vision come to life in a way that I never could have done on my own. Most importantly, I always felt comforted and relaxed knowing that she was there for us.

We used them for photo booth and photography at our wedding. Everyone loved the photo booth, it's well worth the price. The photography was also excellent.

    Erica was great! As a single mom, planning my son's first birthday, she really helped alleviate the anxiety of planning his party. She listened to everything I wanted and made it happen within my small budget. She was with me all day to help set up the party, make sure everyone was having fun and got their goodie bags, and she even helped tear down and clean up after the party was over. I would trust her with any party I want to throw in the future.

    We booked Beamin' Sounds Entertainment for DJ services for both our wedding ceremony and reception. Let me tell you, we could not have been more fortunate than to make that initial call to them. Brent, the owner of Beamin' Sounds was our DJ. We met with him four or five times to plan ALL details of our wedding. He was not only a DJ but also a wedding planner, providing us with full ceremony and reception agendas/itineraries, copies of the ceremony music for our rehearsal, and so much more. He adjusted my train and veil before walking down the aisle with my dad, and kept the party going the ENTIRE NIGHT (from 5:00 - midnight!) and everyone on the dance floor. The flow of the reception was perfect, thanks to him, as everything was timed perfect and no one was ever just sitting, waiting for the next event or dance. There was always something going on. He brought so much personality and energy to our wedding. I must say, I truly miss having meetings with him and seeing him, because he made us feel like family. Do not regret your choice of DJ's for your wedding, the music affects your day more than you know, and Beamin' Sounds will not let you regret your choice on your big day. I even had a problem with another vendor (unfortunately) that did not perform their service up to quality and was a BIG problem at our wedding, and Brent went out of his way to write a letter and talk to the owner of this other vendor to support me in my claims on his own time- he was so helpful and supportive when I was dealing with a very, very disappointing aspect of our big day. Worth every penny, as you get not only get a DJ, but also a wedding planner, and a friend! Beamin' Sounds MADE our wedding day what it was.

      My parents and I hired Andrea in June 2010 to serve as our Planner/Event Coordinator for my June 2011 wedding. When working with Andrea you can tell that she is very skilled and seasoned professional. She really took much of the stress out of planning the wedding. She prepared timelines and checklists to keep our planning on track and sent these by email. She was only an email away if we had any questions. Andrea has worked with many WNY wedding vendors and gave us recommendations based on her experience. She really helped us achieve the overall look and feel we were envisioning for the wedding day with her event planning experience and by pointing us to top-notch vendors and service providers that delivered our vision. Wedding day schedules were sent to all of the vendors as to where and when things had to be in place, and Andrea made sure every vendor adhered to the schedule. On the rehearsal day and wedding day she and her team made sure that everything ran smoothly and had every detail attended to. We couldn't have been more pleased with the results. We truly had our dream wedding. If you hire Andrea to plan your wedding or event you will not be disappointed.

      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.
