    We wanted to plan a 50th wedding anniversary party for our parents and were pleased to find Linda. Since the 'kids' were all from out of town, she met with our parents in person and by phone to set the menu and she scouted out the yard for tent sizes and tables and chairs. The party came off with out a hitch, the food and cake were terrific and Linda was very responsive by email and phone for any clarifications! We couldn't have asked for things to go smoother and Linda and her group were just terrific to work with!

      Eva Mae of Inner Reflections was the event planner for three of my daughters weddings. She even made the wedding dress for one of my daughters. She coordinated everything including but not limited to the guest book table, floral arrangements on pillars and throughout (including gorgeous bridal bouquets), center pieces, table clothes, candle holders and candles, and all other decor. She organized the wedding ceremony and procession, wedding music for the wedding march, as well as the transition to the reception. All three weddings were held in Hornell, N.Y. I was impressed with the excellent customer service we were given, beautiful decor and the affordable price. Eva Mae was early to the events and provided set up and clean up after the weddings and receptions. She really pays attention to all of the details and thinks of all of the little thing. She was great to work with! I would recommend her for any event planning needs you may have. You will not be disappointed. I know she has always done a great job for us and we plan to use again in the future. Eva Mae went above and beyond our expectations. The quality of the work was exceptional! The decor was gorgeous and she was very pleasant to deal with.

      I've worked with Hannah on several different occasions, it has always been a great experience. I have done several birthday and graduation partys and even a wedding with her, in upstate NY and PA. She was quite timely in the planning and very thorough. What really impressed me about Hannah's work was her diligence, efficiency and passion. When working with Hannah I always feel that I'm getting a great quality. You can tell that she really works to give you the party that you wanted/envisioned. At one of the graduation partys the rented tables didn't show up, Hannah followed through and sent two reliable individuals to the rental company to pick up the tables. She stayed very calm and collected throughout the planning process. The only thing that I might suggest is if your planning a larger gathering (over 250 people) you might want to inquire if additional hands would be necessary or availible. Overal working with Hannah has been a pleasant, calm and fun experience. I would definitely recommend her to friends:)

      Mike at Syracuse Party DJs made our wedding a giant success. We had a 200 person event on the lake, and from start to finish he handled everything so smoothly, it was wonderful. From the start, he was extremely professional, answered all of our many calls and was always responsive to our needs, and he had some great suggestions for us. His knowledge and expertise were great help. He provided all of the sound for our ceremony which was also on the lake, and then flawlessly transitioned into the cocktail hour. He wasn't overly chatty on the microphone, but provided just enough, it was perfect! From the entrances to the special dances all the way through to the end of the party, Mike was great and our wedding was great because of him!

      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.
