Thomas and his wife were absolutely fantastic when they DJed my wedding. They were there to set up on time and they were prepared for the entire length of the event. They built a playlist including all of our requests, the uplighting was beautiful, and they were attentive. I had to change the timeline a few times and they were accommodating. Our complaints are not really a huge deal, it was difficult to understand Thomas when he talked because the acoustics in the room were odd. At one point several people (jokingly) requested a very long song and when he obliged nobody danced to it. It wasn't really his fault, because we asked him to take requests!

If you need a planner or day of event coordinator, call Rosanne. Our family cannot say enough of the magnificent care that she took in the planning of the wedding. She was kind, caring, funny, thorough, creative, attentive, detail oriented and all-round pitched in in every way. Money well spent.

We hired Karen super last minute for day of coordination and she did a great job pulling our details together. She worked well with our vendors and the big day was wonderful. She put together a quick solution for us when our venue could not house our guest list that went over by 40. Her quick thinking and connections helped us have the perfect wedding. Thank you so much Karen!!!

Greta was our wedding coordinator/planner and she is without debate, amazing! I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. After one phone call with her I knew I wanted her to be involved in planning our big day. She went above and beyond for us on multiple occasions and made herself available at any hour of the day. Greta made the planning process a breeze! Her professionalism, vision, and passion for her work is unparalleled and our big day was absolutely perfect because of it! Calling her an expert would be an understatement! She thought of every little detail and our wedding was so beautiful thanks to her. I’ve been told numerous times by family and friends that my wedding was the prettiest/detailed wedding they’ve ever attended! If you are looking for a wedding coordinator, you NEED to hire Greta! Thank you Greta for making our day absolutely perfect!!!

Jennifer was a HUGE help in planning my mom's wedding last summer! My mom was a widow for 14 years so when she finally met the right man we wanted to make sure this wedding made her as happy as he does! Iwas struggling to even find the right layout (I have no imagination at all) but with just 1 visit she was able to open my eyes to so many possibilities. The layout of the wedding was amazing and we had so many compliments from those who attended! Jennifer is, and always will be, my go to girl for party planning!!

We are so grateful and exceptionally blessed to have Exquisite Events by Amanee design and orchestrate our wedding. Amanee and her team were extremely professional and provided specific and very personal customer service. She went above and beyond the call of duty to extract a vision of our wedding that we hadn't conceived and didn't know was possible. It's because of Exquisite Events that we even had a wedding at all! 8-weeks from the highly sought after date we had no event design or flow for the wedding or reception- No venue, no decorations, no linen, no flowers, no favors, etc. With one consultation, Amanee came in and saved the day! Within the session, she had a high level design and by the next consult there was a portfolio of design options (venues, florals, décor, drapes, etc.) that were unique to our needs, style and tastes. To say the least we knew we were in good hands. We received wonderful feedback and compliments from family, friends(in attendance and observing online) and even the venue and vendors about the elegance, beauty, and professionalism in which the event was executed... Most importantly, Exquisite Events made us feel at ease at a time when there would ordinarily be panic (before, during, and after). We were able to completely relax and enjoy our wedding and reception. We highly recommend Exquisite Events and friends and family have already began to use them. We are sincerely and eternally grateful, Tish and Taj (02/15/2014)

Roxanne is amazing! Her work is just as valuable as the advice she has given me and my fiancé during the planning process. Her ideas are very unique when comparing them to other places we looked at. Price was by far the best option we came accross as well. Looking forward to possibly working with her in the future and referring her to family and friends!

I hired Debra to be a day of coordinator and I am so glad that I did! We had our first meeting and went through everything a couple months before the wedding. She as always available to answer any questions that I had and helped to smooth out the details when needed. She was there on the wedding day to let vendors in the building to get set up. During the cocktail and reception she took care of making sure everything was how it needed to be. Wedding morning my friends were wondering why I wasn't stressed or nervous at all. I know that part of my calm was knowing that Debbie knew what I wanted and was going to do her best to make sure everything went off without a problem AND IT DID!

Morgan did a wonderful job of aiding me with my wedding planning hair and makeup. I didn’t have a very big budget and she really helped me get the most I could with what I had and made sure everything matched what I had invisioned. She offered helpful advice and helped schedule appointments and made sure I stayed on track. She has all her own makeup and materials and also strives to use all makeup that is cruelty free. She also did all my makeup and hair and I’m not adam of wearing makeup but she did a fantastic job. She used just the right amount of makeup to enhance my natural beauty which is something I really like about what she does. She is always timly and is a good multi tasker. Also offers fair pricing for all her services. 10/10 would recommend for makeup hair or any planning help you may need.

Kathy made my dream wedding a reality! Her resources seem unlimited, as do her ideas and talent. I didn't want to worry about anything on my wedding day and I didn't. She had everything under control and even found an amazing work-around when rain ruined our sparkler-filled exit! I cannot recommend her her highly enough!

    Working with Orchids & Veils was a such a great experience! Samantha was wonderful and so easy to work with. I live in Chicago and she's based in Cincinnati but with the tools she used, the wedding planning process was seamless, thorough, and just about stress-free. And the wedding turned out beautiful!

    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.
