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!

Nikki did a great job with my wedding pictures! She has a real talent for capturing special moments! She is very professional and she has an extremely likable personality - which made working with her a blast!

Brittany has coordinated many events for me and each of them were fun, perfect, and went off without a hitch! She has planned both my bachelorette party and decorating my wedding! With my bachelorette party, all decorations, event coordinating, and gifts for my girls was all provided by her and she really went above and beyond! I felt incredibly special and she was also very passionate about everything that went involved. For my wedding as well she was very passionate about it. She really listened to what the theme was (which was Modern Rustic) and really went for it! I provided decorations and she also had tons of her own that she set up and made it look perfect. I highly recommend Brittany for any event coordinating that needs to be done!

Sandra and her team were phenomenal in every way. Not only did she come through as the wedding coordinator, but her son was our D.J. Such a dynamic and professional family duo. Our wedding ran very smoothly and all the little details we're handled in a professional way. The passion for what they do came through and having such genuinely sweet, kind-hearted and authentic people be a part of our special day made it that much more memorable. Looking forward to working with God's Creation again. Maybe for our 5yr. wedding anniversary! 😉

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!

Our wedding day was such a beautiful blur, but you made every detail work. From fixing lettering on a sign, to coordinating the wedding procession you really went above and beyond what I could have ever expected.

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.

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.
