We knew from the moment we met Gabrielle that she was the planner for us! She greeted us with a smile on her face and was dressed to impress. At our first meeting Kevin and I felt like she really listened to us and took our suggestions and ideas (even if they were crazy) to heart. We had talked to a few other wedding planners and they seemed more enthusiastic about their own ideas than the ones we had. In over a year of working with Gabrielle, I never once felt like she was trying to push her vision or what she wanted and that was really refreshing. We had the style of the event under control we just needed someone to execute all the little details on the day of the wedding. During this process Gabrielle became more like good friend then just our wedding planner. I found myself saying "I can't wait to show Gabrielle a picture of my wedding dress" or "the button bouquets are done... wait until Gabrielle sees them!" She was always checking in to make sure we were on track or if we had any questions. To say Gabrielle went above and beyond our expectations is an understatement. In fact, she saved the wedding on more than one occasion. When our caterer fell through she was right there with other suggestions. She helped us find so many additional vendors like our vintage Photobooth and where to rent furniture even though we signed up for just the Day of Coordination package! Our wedding day was beautiful, amazing, and everything we hoped it to be thanks to Gabrielle and her husband Matt. They really are the "wedding dream team."

MaryAnna was so helpful in every area of planning my wedding. I had a hard time describing what I wanted and she was able to take my thoughts and pull it all together. I really liked that she returned my emails and phone calls right away. I wasn't going to have a day of coordinator, but I'm so glad we did! MaryAnna worked with everyone to make sure transitions went seamlessly. She was friendly and professional the entire night. Definitely recommend her!

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.

Aaryn was the event coordinator for one of my favorite days of my life-- my wedding. For about 36 hours she handled all manner of things like direction of people, set up of decorations, preparation of food and answering the hundreds of miscellaneous questions that come with such a crazy day. She is so personable, an incredible listener and has a nack for really understanding and pursuing the vision of an event. I wouldn't have trusted this day to anyone else.

    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.

    The best decision we made when planning our reception was to hire Molly with Anchor Events. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a beautiful and stress-free reception. Molly was always very responsive, professional, flexible throughout the planning process and had great suggestions to fit our budget. She created perfect centerpieces and decorations for the reception that were better than we could have imagined. She wrangled all our vendors with ease to ensure they were all on time and on the same page about the day's agenda. She even ran interference for us when a vendor was causing stress and got us drinks at our reception! If you are thinking about hiring a wedding planner or a decorator you should book Anchor Events, you won't regret it.

      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.

      Amber was the Wedding Planner for a wedding at Hidden Valley Animal Lodge last fall, and she contacted me to provide the flowers for the bridal party as well as the reception. She provided a good overall background for the event, represented the bride's desires very well, and was very efficient in her communications and efforts. She is pro-active, pleasant to work with, and asked questions about my services that typically fall thru the cracks when planning for a big event. I had complete confidence that she was representing the bride completely and faithfully, and that when I arrived with the flowers the bride would not be surprised or disappointed. She will be an asset to any engaged couple, and you'll really enjoy your experience with her!!

      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.
