My wife and I got married at city hall on 5/14/16. It was important to us to have use of the beautiful building without a plethora of people running around. Our photographer recommended that we hire an outside officiant so that we could have our ceremony after the hours that city hall performs their weddings. After searching around and asking other people who they had used, I found Reverend Kevin Garrison. At first I was concerned because he is an ordained minister, but after talking to him, I realized that performing a civil marriage ceremony as opposed to a religious one was not an issue for Kevin. I quickly emailed him as this was a last minute change in dates. Thankfully he was able to accommodate our day and he agreed to marry us. We didn't meet until right before the ceremony yet my wife and I felt comfortable with him immediately. He somehow made a civil marriage ceremony very special and I am so glad we found him. One big plus was that Kevin took care of turning in all of our paperwork for us, allowing us to celebrate with our guests. If you are looking for an officiant who knows his stuff and brings a sense of calm and kindness to your special day. Don't hesitate to hire Kevin!

Denisse is sooooo amazing! She is so knowledgeable and organized and made what we thought would be a very stressful planning process into something that was a lot of fun. I had actually fired our first wedding planner because she didn't listen to what we wanted and seemed like every quote we received was more expensive than the last without improvement. We had ideas about what we wanted our wedding to look like but wasn't sure about venues, churches and we were unable to decide what we needed to remove to fit within our budget. We never thought that it would be so stressful planning our own wedding, trust me, it can be if you have the wrong person! We found Denisse on Thumbtack, gave her an idea of what we wanted and actually met her the next night. Denisse was able to get everything for costs we could afford and found us the most perfect church and reception hall. Our family was very impressed and my friends still can't believe how we did it and where we found her. She is already talking to 2 of my girlfriends who are engaged and they are telling me the same thing about her. Use Denisse, she will make your wedding AWESOME!

    Haley @ mashmade has provided us with flyers and assorted marketing materials for special events and teammate meetings and functions over the past few years. I have always been really impressed with both her creativity and her professionalism. She also is very experienced with all of the ins and outs of wedding planning. I would highly recommend Mashmade!

    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.
