We could not have asked for a better person to DJ our wedding. Davey went above and beyond to make sure our day was as stress free as possible! Our guest loved his as well. If we needed anything he was just an email/text away. He truly loves what he does, and it shows in his work and how he treats his clients. We Highly recommend!!

This was my first time using thumbtack so I was very weary about the results. When Kawanna contacted me she immediately caught my attention with her professionalism and upbeat personality. Visual Drama Designs were EXTREMELY accommodating and worked with us despite the changes we made even after signing a contract. She understands that a wedding can be stressful and literally made sure she was not a part of those moments. Not only was her customer service amazing but her designs... WOW!! Absolutely Beautiful!!! I received sooooo many compliments on the decor and even my now husband was looking around and said "wow she did a great job!" Now you know it's good when MEN notice!! Lol I will 100% be using them again in the future and referring them to EVERYONE I know! You will not find a business of this caliber that cares and takes time for the "little" things. I mean she met me at the store and went flower shopping with me! Thank you soooo much Visual Drama Designs for making our special day unforgettable. The custom design, the excellent customer service and your warm and calming spirit was everything a bride could ever want on her once in a lifetime wedding day!! We are forever grateful! Love, The Hollins 🤗

We can't say enough good things about working with Kirsten! From the very first meeting we had to the last minute of our wedding, she was incredibly professional, efficient, helpful, and put us at complete ease on our wedding day and throughout the entire planning process. She completely went above and beyond and exceeded all expectations we had. She was always available whenever we had any questions and checked in constantly from the time we hired her until the wedding. Our wedding would not have gone nearly as smooth if it wasn't for her. Her efforts and her professionalism played such a huge role in making our wedding day the best day of our lives. On the day of, her husband was also there to help, and he was incredibly kind and helpful. We'd recommend her 1,000 times to anybody looking for a day of coordinator.

My experience with Choye was absolutely, wonderful. Everything I asked I received the event planner was professional, classy, and patient. LaTonia's took my suggestions and created a vision that was beyond my expectations. My guest enjoyed their selves and I will definitely choose Choye again.

Music & More Inc. was a fantastic choice for my baby sister's Sweet 16 Party located in North Ridgeville, Ohio. The event lasted approximately 4 hours and everyone enjoyed the music and was kept entertained the whole time with Darrel's great variety of music. He arrived and was set up and ready to rock 15 minutes early which speaks volumes about his dedication and eagerness to please the client. I was impressed at how well he interacted with and responded to all of my guests. They ranged in age from late teens, to early thirty-somethings, to my grandparents. That said, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Darrel for any event you need entertainment for. Graduation Party, Wedding, 25th Anniversary Party, even a Corporate Event in your near future? You can't go wrong with Music & More!

I was so delighted when Teresa changed into a 1920s dress to go with our Art Deco Hollywood theme on our wedding day! She and her assistant, Kylee worked so hard and even had to deal with changing all the Bridesmaid's bouquets because the florist used a flower I hated. I know, such a Bridezilla. Teresa came up with so many ways to make the day go even more smoothly and got glowing reviews from the wedding party as well. I have never made a better decision than hiring a day-of wedding coordinator, and you will be nothing but pleased if you chose, Teresa to be yours.

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.
