Lindy was our Wedding Officiant on June 25th 2014, in Madras, Or. We had her create a sermon that was not super religious, but spiritual. After only a short conversation with us she was able to understand exactly what would fit us best, plus she was very open to tailoring all aspects to our preferences. Our interaction with her from beginning to end was very personal, and professional. She was punctual, and responded to my questions quickly. I am highly recommending her to anyone for her services!!! If you are looking someone to marry you who cares as much about your wedding as you do, Lindy is your best way to go!!!

Britt was called in literally at the last minute, four weeks before the wedding after our original planner flaked out on us. I can truly say that without her, the wedding would not have the fabulous day that it was. We were having the entire wedding –ceremony and all at our house, with seating & tables for 175 guests, a buffet, open bar, a band, & a DJ. Having your home as the venue is wonderful, but also scary as there is no ‘staff’, or experienced person to lead the way. So we needed someone to help in a big way and Britt was up to the task right from the start and more, asking all the right questions, with humor and grace and calmness, helping to steady our somewhat rudderless ship. The day of the wedding, she just quietly took on all the little jobs that needed doing – so many little details that no one needed to mention, she just looked around and got things done. Without her, I know I wouldn’t have been able to relax and enjoy the moment. She was there every step, guiding all of us. Everyone commented on how great she was- in the background, but with a watchful eye on the details. So many things were taken care of, freeing our family to really experience the joy of the whole day. It was a wonderful event and no doubt, Britt was a huge part in facilitating the major success we now share in our memories. Thank you Britt! (And Bixby ;-}! )

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.
