Writing this review it is a bittersweet feeling. I've spoken with Tina numerous of times prior to my wedding and meeting her in person I felt like I finally saw a lost relative. She was not only my wedding planner, but also officiated my wedding ceremony. If something in the timeline did not go as plan, she was on top of it and fixed whatever problem there was. My 2 year old daughter fell asleep and Tina held her for almost an hour without any complaints. Tina, is very dedicate to her work. All the worries I had, she took care of it without any hesitation. Tina was my life saver! You need a wedding planner, hire Tina! Tina will forever hold a place in my heart. I am definitely going to miss talking to her! Thank you Tina! You are AMAZING! XOXOXOX....

Corie did my make-up for a wedding last weekend. I told her what I wanted and she did exactly what I asked. The make-up stayed all day and I was very happy about that :) Plus, she is hilarious.

Donna is AMAZING! We hired Donna to assist with my daughters grad party and it was more of a gift to myself than I could have imagined. Donna did much of the party shopping and planning and once she arrived at the event it ran so smoothly and my husband and I got to enjoy time with our guests. Donna was willing to do whatever we needed in each moment. She added a bunch of special touches that we didn't even plan which were heartfelt and beautiful additions. I would absolutely use her services anytime I have a function.

My husband and I were married in 2009. We had been searching for venues and event planners that would give us the day we wanted; a formal afternoon tea party. After numerous meetings with other planners, only to walk away disappointed we met with Sal. He was as excited about our idea as we were and it really showed. Our wedding day was everything we wanted and more and we didn't have to worry about anything. Sal's enthusiastic and imaginative approach put our minds at ease. Even years later friends and family who joined us that day still tell us ours was the best wedding they've ever attended. Sal and his staff were fantastic and I would be delighted to hire him for any event I host in the future.

I used Blue Moon Cakes & Catering for my wedding and I could not have been happier. I was working with a limited budget and so I would be amazed to see what a larger budget would do. The whole process was smooth and comfortable. Tracy took all of my suggestions and made them better. We had an array of delicious dishes so everyone could enjoy a full plate. The chicken dish was especially great, it was the most juicy and we'll spiced chicken and dressing that I have ever had. Tracy handled the whole operation from start to clean up with care, leaving me unburdened for my big day. She even participated in decor and planning, another area she was amazing in. I genuinely have no complaints and would recommend her company for any occasion.

We hired Keri and Victoria to be the bartenders at our wedding of about 130+ guests. They were amazing from the get go. Every guest had nothing but amazing things to say about friendly they were. I would highly recommend these 2 to anyone that is looking for a couple bartenders for an event.

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.
