We contacted Scott and Bobby about a year ago to photograph our daughters wedding, which was this past Saturday. The wedding was 450 miles away from home and we were stressed about how we were going to pull it off! After talking to Bobby about all the services they had to offer and what the charge would be they quickly became my wedding coordinator and our hero! Not only did they photograph the entire weekend from the rehearsal to the reception but they decorated the church and reception venue and done an amazing job at an extremely reasonable price! Scott and Bobby took the stress off us so that we could just sit back and enjoy our daughters wedding day without all the worries! We were not even home from Ohio yet when they messages us with picture previews because they were already working on the pictures and should have them done in a couple days! I can't wait to see them! To sum it up............. Scott and Booby are awesome and I would not hesitate to call on them for future needs!!!!!!!!

Jim Sharick was our DJ for our backyard wedding. He was great to work with and made extra efforts to get the style of music and feel just like we wanted. He also was great at communicating with us and help us have a wonderful, memorable evening. Thank you, Jim! We love you!

I own a mobile DJ business, and have been at multiple events where Lisa Nelson and Just For the Occasion have catered. I've always been impressed with the overall presentation and professionalism shown. Most recently I experienced JFTO's services at a wedding and reception held at a community shelter house. I had attended other events at this venue and didn't expect much. Lisa and her staff transformed the place into a very elegant setting. Decorations were on point, and the food was delicious Definitely one of the best in the business!

Oh my gosh, where do I begin. Sarah, was so helpful, offered suggestions, met with us a number of times to discuss ideas, next steps, etc. She is excellent at communicating effectively and promptly. She shared an accurate and detailed timeline that was updated throughout the process to keep us on target and on task. Sarah is very approachable, friendly, and so caring. Most importantly, she was extremely patient in the face of a highly emotional time for us. She was a "Blessing" on the day of rehearsal and the "Big Day". The entire rehearsal and wedding day were seamless. As the Mother of the Bride, I can honestly say I relaxed and enjoyed the entire weekend. I all it all to Sarah and her attention to detail. I completely trusted her to organize, supervise, check on vendors, and to herd us to the right place at the right time. She did it all with a smile on her face. Not only did I gain a Wedding Planner, but I hope a friend for life. Sarah is worth her weight in gold!!

Jessica was outstanding with ensuring everything was done to my satisfaction. I loved the tulle she hung from the ceiling for my daughter's wedding. It added softness to the venue's ceiling to enhance the romantic style we wanted. Thank you for helping making my daughter's wedding perfect.

Sandy and her team did an amazing job!!! Our day was absolutely beautiful- many of guests were shocked that sandy transferred our formal dining room into a beautiful, romantic, lighted wedding space. Hire Sandy for your special day - it’ll be the best decision you’ve made. Also, sandy was extraordinarily responsive to any questions I had during the process. She is AMAZING!

Fanee' was our event planner for my mother-in-law's 60th birthday. She took care of invitations, party favors, games and flower arrangements/decorations. The room where we hosted the party looked amazing!!! The floral arrangements were elegant and perfectly understated (like my mother-in-law). They were a mix of hydrangeas and yellow roses w/ red tips - her favorite. We were so pleased with the level of professionalism and expertise that Fanee' executed for such a small affair, who knows what she could do with an unlimited budget and a bigger space!

Landon served as our (impromptu) wedding planner and wedding officiant; what I mean is, he had already agreed to be our officiant and I (thought I was) was planning our wedding myself, until we had our first meeting with Landon. I expressed some concerns regarding the planning of the wedding at this meeting, in casual conversation and asked for a couple of tips. It was about two months or so away from our wedding and he knew all the advice to give, feedback on existent ideas and suggestions I hadn't even thought of. Landon was so helpful, creative and REALISTIC (some Pinterest ideas I had were not) and he helped make the day as effortlessly perfect as possible. I wish I would have asked Landon to be my official wedding planner in the beginning, as it would have saved me a few sleepless nights but, either way, he was wonderfully helpful with everything he did and I would highly recommend him to any couple, or for any event. Landon will put all of his attention into your event and he will make it a spectacular day for you and yours. Thanks Landon!

    Shelly is absolutely amazing! Not only as a professional but as an all-around person. I had absolute faith in her from the moment we first began on the journey to plan my wedding. She listened to every idea and plan I had. Even when I could only visualize what I wanted, and not necessarily verbalize it. She somehow understood me and made me vision come to fruition. She made time to not only help me look for venues, but visit multiple venues as well. Shelly also attended multiple bridal shows with myself and the bridal party! She was there to ask the question I would forget to ask or just didn’t know to ask. I would absolutely recommend Shelly to anyone that is looking for an affordable, personable, professional, caring, and genuinely good person!

    First Comes Love Bridal was absolutely amazing! Shunda goes above and beyond for your needs and...it's AFFORDABLE! You are able to customize a package for whatever you need (Day-of coordination, Research of Venues, All of the Above etc..). Our wedding was done on a budget and mostly DIY so in the beginning of my wedding planning I didn't even want to invest in a coordinator. However, after my friends had raved about how great Shunda was coordinating their wedding I decided to go for it and I am so happy I did! My wedding day turned out absolutely beautiful. I literally don't know how I would've done it without her. Shunda is thoughtful, organized, professional, accommodating and really goes above and beyond. Did I mention she's AFFORDABLE!? If you want the wedding of your dreams on a budget, hire Shunda!

I would also say she made sure she communicated with us from the beginning to the day of the wedding, so we felt comfortable and confident with her services. Thanks Lydia, we wish you the best in your endeavors!

    I hired Custom Weddings by Angelique for my wedding and the service that she provided was extraordinary. From the moment my husband and I met her when knew she was the one. We had met with several other planners and their personalities were dull and not appealing. Angelique was very hands on and she catered to our needs. She listed to what we wanted and she did an excellent job. She had excellent vendors who were very professional and affordable. I would definitely recommend her.

    I hired Mary to plan a party for my significant other and I couldn't have asked for a better experience! She is organized, well connected, enthusiastic, and dedicated to catering to her clients' needs. I recommend her if you are looking for a party planner with varied event planning experience and great taste.

    R & S events handled my twins first birthday party and did an amazing job in arranging all details from the cake, to the amazing dessert table, to the location and the little details on what to order with food. I thought at first i would not need a planner but with my hands full and on that day you get so busy meeting guests that there is no time to handle party details. They followed through my emails and texted me right away when i had a question !!

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
