Ellen Deluise catered a wedding reception for me for 150 people. I selected a traditional menu but Ellen provided several other menu options to choose from. She was very professional, easy to work with and was quick to respond to phone calls. The quality of the food and presentation were excellent. I would definitely hire her again in the future.

I had David design a logo as a wedding gift to friends of mine. David was very responsive and worked well over email, which made it easy to get the work done. Plus the logo looks great! He also got it to me in the formats I requested.

We worked with Katherine Fonsella from DeCicco events and cuisine and she was WONDERFUL. We were planning a pre-wedding dinner for about 100 people in the Tarrytown area, but we live in Northern California. We did not know any venues or caterers or suppliers. Katherine helped us find a great, unusual loft venue, arranged all the decor, tables, lighting, and set up the catering from DeCiccos. The staff were excellent, the food was very good, everything went off perfectly. We are so appreciative of all that Katherine did to make our event wonderful!

I'm working with Adrienn to alter my wedding dress. I'm planning to wear my Mom's dress but have the long sleeves and turtleneck turned into a jacket. Walking into the shop I knew right away Adrienn is extremely talented, the samples of her work are beautiful! But the level of creativity and enthusiasm she had when I told her what I wanted to do definitely confirmed I was in the right place! She is working hard now but I'll definitely share the finished product :)

I've had the pleasure to work with We Make Fun event company and Anastasiya for my recent wedding. Not only was Anastasiya caring, approachable and understanding she was also very professional, polished and sophisticated. This truly reflected in her work and I felt very comfortable with her style/suggestions. She's a fast thinker and multitasker yet makes it look so easy/graceful. If you're planning a wedding (or any event) she should be the first person you contact for planning and/or day of coordination. I highly recommend and suggest you get her on your team asap!

Peter has taken the wedding party for my son, Michael and his wife, Fate, to a highest level that anyone could ever imagine. He paid attention to all details from the moment he walked into our house to set up the food stations, the bar stations and the kitchen where he and Jennifer, his assistant, worked. The food he cooked were very creative and beautiful and his staffs were so good in learning how to say the names of our Vietnamese and Filipino food. I strongly recommend Peter to any parties, whether for a wedding event, or home dinner. Thank you, Peter, you are the greatest (may be Momofuku should pay attention to the next Pork Belly bun with Kim Chi). Best regards, Kim

I hired J and L Event Services for my wedding. They were there for 11 hours and did everything possible to keep everyone there happy. They were so helpful in every aspect, and truly cared about their work and the success of my event. They continually went above and beyond, and took pride in their work. Everyone at my event was impressed with the hard work this crew did. I can't thank them enough for everything!!! They made our day beyond perfect!

Oh my where do I start. I hired 3R's Catering & Eventd for a family meet & greet, for my wedding head table and chapel decor. The family dinner was a beautiful start to a memorable weekend. The food was delicious the Mac and cheese was scrumptious. The candy table was breathtaking it was all I could ask for and more. My family was speechless. Next day the wedding chapel was pretty and simple but all we needed because my wife and I were the focal points. The head table was the prettiest setup I've ever seen. It made us feel like we were the Queens of the Night. Simply Beautiful. Regina you have a talent that will take you sooo many places. I appreciate all the hard work and thought you put into making my weekend extra special.

When we discussed planning our own wedding, our anxiety was through the roof! Good thing we found all things possible because literally, they made all things possible. Christina and Erica were patient, understanding, creative, accommodating, and most of all, they made it feel as if we were family while they were planning our wedding. Everything was planned perfectly. Missy and I have a very vigorous schedule, Christina and Erica adjusted to our schedule, whether it was late at night early in the morning they made sure that we werent inconvenienced. Everything leading up to the wedding was amazing, and our wedding night was exactly how we dreamt it to be. We would use them all over again. Thank you!!! We love you

Brittney was fabulous to work with from start to finish! She is responsive, kind, and went above and beyond. I was grateful to have Brittney to bounce ideas off of and keep me sane throughout wedding planning. She was a rock-star with managing the day of timeline, and made sure everyone was where they needed to be when. I also had a unique request to help with a recessional walk from the church through Central Park to the Boathouse and she gladly took on the task, learning the route and making sure guests made it to the reception. Brittney is organized and an all around great person - I highly recommend her!

Evelisa was amazing and went above and beyond for our Wedding day. She was great at communicating and always returned your calls or emails in a timely fashion. She had great ideas and really worked with us to make our day not only special but unique. We loved the fact that not only was she our florist, but she was also able to help us out with name cards and table images which was one of the reasons we have to thank her for making our day unique. I highly recommend working with Evelisa on your Wedding day.

Planning my wedding was incredibly strenuous, so I hired Ani as the day-of wedding coordinator. She took care of everything, including handling a few problems my bridesmaids had (I didn't even know about it until the next day). She made everyone feel comfortable and did a great job.

I had to say that working with Vennissa of Scarlett Expressions was awesome, she did a very good work decorating two different location for my wedding both at the park and the indoor reception, everything was so beautiful and she went way beyond her duties, taking care of my guests and making sure everyone was seated properly and everything was set up the way i wanted it. I would strongly recommend her for any of your special events.

Hiring YWBL was the BEST decision!!! I could not be more pleased with Lauren S and Lauren R and how our intimate Brooklyn wedding turned out. They are PROS and took over the month before our wedding. I thought I had most of the planning done but YWBL took it to the next level organizing all our vendor contracts and confirming all the nitty-gritty details around decor, timing, logistics. We had the TIME OF OUR LIVES at our wedding and were able to relax and be fully present knowing YWBL was running the show. Treat yo self and hire YWBL. You won’t regret it!!!!

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.
