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 do you choose a wedding videographer?

A wedding videographer will create a lifetime memory for you from edited video footage of your wedding day, ceremony and reception. Choosing a wedding videographer starts with looking online at portfolios of their past work. There’s no need to talk to anyone unless you love what you see. Next, make sure they have good reviews and past client experience; don’t be shy about asking for references if there aren’t any posted online. When you find someone who has a style you love, ask if they are available on your wedding day. If so, it’s time to talk pricing. Be clear about your maximum budget, and ask what kind of packages they offer. Pricing will depend on the number of crew needed for filming, the hours they are required to be onsite, post-production editing, and the length of the final product. Talk with several wedding videographers to get a feel for what prices are like in your region. Nationally, the average cost for wedding videography ranges between $990 and $1,260 per event. Once you agree on a product and have a plan, get everything in a written and signed contract. Clearly state the details of what is expected for your wedding day and from the final product. Be prepared to pay a deposit to reserve their services for the day, then pay the remainder upon receiving the video.

What is a mariachi band?

Mariachi bands are rooted in Mexican culture. Traditional mariachi bands consisted of two or more members playing stringed instruments, wearing regional costumes adapted from the charro (Mexican horseman or cowboy). Modern mariachi bands, which are likely what you’re looking for when searching for a mariachi band for hire, feature at least four members who play stringed instruments (violin, vihuela, bass guitar called guitarron) and one or more trumpets. The costumes have remained the same, but now trumpets are synonymous with mariachi music. Mariachi bands for hire often play a wide range of music, including styles originating from Mexico and adopted from elsewhere. These include jarabes, waltzes, serenades, corridos (Mexican ballads), ranchera, cumbia, and more. Mariachi bands for hire bring a festive and soulful element to a party, birthday, wedding, corporate affair, fundraiser or community event. UNESCO has inscribed mariachi music on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

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 videographer and what do they do?

A videographer professionally films weddings and other events and edits the footage to create film keepsakes or marketing materials for their clients. Wedding videographers record all the key elements of your wedding day, ceremony and reception, and then edit the hours of film during post-production to make a wedding video, social media highlight reels, and any other film features you choose. Wedding videography captures, in live action, your vows, the cake-cutting, the first dance, reception toasts, the decor, the guests and all the details of your day. Many wedding videographers also interview guests (based on an interview list provided by the couple) and incorporate the recorded responses into the wedding video. Event videography typically costs less than wedding videography, as events are shorter with less detail. The national average cost for event videography is $500-$760, while the national average cost for wedding videography is $990-$1,260. A videographer usually does not need to be licensed, but it is important to confirm they have insurance and good standing in the business community, as well as good client reviews. A great majority of the work happens during post-production. The pros watch and blend together the hours of footage they took (sometimes from multiple cameras) to capture the story of your wedding day or event.

How much are wedding DJs?

Hiring a DJ typically costs anywhere from $300 to $1,200. It all depends on how long they’ll be working at your wedding and other various factors. The cost to hire a wedding DJ is usually higher than the cost to hire a DJ to play at a birthday party or similar event. 

To find out exactly how much your wedding DJ will cost, ask for a cost estimate from several professionals in your area.

Do wedding officiants offer remote or virtual services?

Reach out to wedding officiants in your area, and ask them if they can offer a remote or virtual ceremony. Some officiants may be willing to meet in person while maintaining 6 feet of distance, while others may prefer to conduct the entire service over the phone or a video call service such as Skype or Zoom.

Familiarize yourself with the social distancing rules in your community, city and state, and move forward only if both you and the officiant are comfortable with the arrangement. 

Do photographers offer remote or virtual services?

Photography happens in person, but photographers may be able to offer other remote services safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, they may be able to offer editing and other post-processing services. 

If you see that a photographer is offering remote services in their profile, contact them and ask what those services include.

How do you find a good hairstylist?

First, pull up a list of nearby hairstylists on Thumbtack, and read their profiles to get an understanding of what they specialize in — hair coloring, cutting, extensions, wedding hairstyles, etc. Then, start searching for stylists who have high ratings and customer reviews. You should also spend some time looking at photos that showcase their work. That way, you can determine if a stylist has the experience and skills needed to achieve the look you want. 

When you’ve identified at least three hairstylists you like, ask them for a cost estimate and make sure they have the proper credentials.

Everything went well when we met for the first time and we were in constant communication. Like many weddings things happen that are sometimes not I edit your control for example my hair and makeup person got there late due to heavy traffic delay. So it it delayed me by 30 minutes, unfortunately. I've never felt so pressured like I did for my wedding, Vlada rushed and rushed without consideration. I didn't expect that from her. I feel that was absolutely unprofessional on her behalf and it was a huge disappointment on my wedding day.

My husband and I did our own separate research on officiants in NYC, and to our surprise we both came up with reverend Juan Enrique Toro as our top choice! We originally thought that officiants mainly just show up to marry you, but Juan did a lot more than we expected. We had an introductory Zoom meeting to gain an understanding of our wedding. It was followed by emails to help us with our vows and marriage certificate. Juan was always available if we needed him and his passion really excited us. On our final call the week before the wedding, we really appreciated Juan giving us the story, background and meaning of the ceremony. Day of our wedding (7-3-22), Juan arrived very early to make sure everything was good to go. During the ceremony, he was so full of energy, passion and love. He was patient and understanding of our hectic schedule. Afterwards, Juan filed our license and kept us informed with details. Price was very reasonable for the amount (and quality) of service we received. From the pre wedding planing, during, and post wedding Juan was phenomenal. He was the perfect officiant for us. We highly recommend him!

Mike was great to work with. He was responsive prior to my wedding and was more than willing to discuss details and game plan for the day of the event. The music he played throughout the reception was good and had people up and dancing. He was upbeat and was easy to talk to throughout the wedding. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because he played the wrong recessional song and it threw us off a little as we walked back from ceremony and was late with the entrance song that led into the first dance.

Pastor Brian officiated our wedding in May 2019. Our experience with him was great from start to finish. He was very professional and EXTREMELY responsive which is something that is very important to me. He always made himself available to answer any questions or address any concerns. The process was very easy from start to finish which is very much appreciated after all the headaches that come along with planning a wedding. I would absolutely recommend Pastor Brian and thank him tremendously for the role he played on my very special day!

Still in the wedding planning stage and Monique has been top notched. I’m a nervous bride and hard for me to nail down an idea. She’s provided support and makes me feel comfortable. She has great suggestions which is exactly what I need. She is constantly available via email, call or text. I also appreciate the zoom calls for a more personal conversation and interaction. Monique is friendly, she’s knows the wedding world!! I totally trust her throughout the process. Can’t wait for my big day to see my ideas come to reality!
