I had researched a lot of wedding planners before deciding on Morgan. As soon as I met her, she was so warm and understanding of our needs that I knew she was the best fit. She exceeded our expectations taking on all of the responsibility allowing us to just enjoy the last month before our big day and letting us relax. Her professionalism and immediate response time allowed me the freedom to know that everything was in good hands. She made the build up, rehearsal dinner and wedding day all go so smoothly that I would actually do it all over again just knowing she was involved! She was by far, the best part of our choices for the wedding and handled everything as if it were her own. She has since become someone I can say is a friend too since she made us feel like we were just as important as her own family or friends would be. I highly recommend her for all your event and wedding needs!

I loved working with Nicole at Party to Go go. She was wonderful and our wedding was a great success with only healthy butterflies not undo stress. She handled it all. She was very attentive to my vision and pulled it off beautifully. She had our best interest in mind when it came to what we wanted in decor and cost effective vendors as well. It was a pleasure and though it won’t be for another wedding; I will definitely be calling her in the future for party planning! She and her staff are “and then some type of workers.” I highly recommend them to anyone who wants their event to go smoothly. Cheers!

We worked with the awesome duo from Parties and Events NW for our wedding, and it was an absolute dream. Rebecca was our wedding decorator, and Erin was our day of coordinator, and our wedding could not have gone more smoothly without the help of these two amazing ladies. When I first spoke with Rebecca, she communicated every detail about our wedding vision that ensured that no area of planning would go unnoticed. She is kind, patient, and oh so creative! We visited our venue together, and Rebecca gave excellent tips and ideas that helped create an aesthetic look that perfectly matched the goals we had previously discussed. We also used their decorations, which was both cost and time effective that greatly reduced wedding planning stress. You will absolutely be satisfied with how your venue will look, as it will exceed your expectations! Erin was likewise a gem to work with as our wedding day coordinator. There is absolutely NOOO way that our wedding could have gone as smoothly without her amazing help. She kept us calm and relaxed, and was flexible to any changes that ensured our day went according to plan (and that we eat and stay hydrated!). In the weeks leading up to our wedding, Erin kindly talked us through all the final details (and spoke all our other vendors) that helped minimize stress and any concerns we had. She is incredibly detail oriented, and gave attention to all parts of our wedding that allowed my husband and I to focus on what mattered most-- marrying each other! Both ladies communicate incredibly well and in a timely manner that will leave you feeling assured that your wedding day will look and go just as you envision. We received so many compliments about how beautiful our venue looked, and how fun our wedding was- all thanks to the expertise of this duo. I highly recommend Parties and Events NW to help plan and decorate your event. Thank you, Rebecca and Erin, so much. We are forever grateful, and hope to work with you again in the future! xoxo, the Kochs

Well where do I start....I guess at the beginning, my first encounter was my wedding. I told her what I wanted and she did not hesitate, the prices were great, the flowers beautiful and she was right on time. Since then I have ordered many flower arrangements from her, birthdays, mother’s day, ECT. Again prices are very fair and the flowers always fresh and delivered in a timely fashion. I would recommend Vanessa Sommerfeld to anyone for every occasion!

    Nataliya is hands down the best wedding planner a bride could ask for!!! She is extremely detail oriented and will make the best day of your life even better than you could imagine. She will help no matter how big or small the request is. From helping me find the perfect venue to cake to flowers she does it all. On the day of the wedding she made sure all the vendors knew where/what to do without me having to talk to anyone and just focus on being the bride. The venue looked perfect because she listened to everything I wanted and made it magically appear. My bridesmaids loved how kind and respectful she was when helping them find their places for the ceremony and herding them for the never ending photos I wanted. There is hands down no better wedding (or any other event) planner in Portland!!! I can’t wait to have another event that I can hire her to help me cause I know she will go above and beyond my expectations and make the day unforgettable.

    I thought I could do this wedding planning all by myself(very wrong) at beginning. My husband booked Sherice as our wedding planner while I was on business trip. One of the best decision he ever made for the wedding! Sherice is very organized, professional and sweet. I don’t know about other people, but I became very emotional and stressful right before the big day. Really couldn’t imagine if I have to worry about the cake, floral, catering and a million other things on that day! The floral arrangements were done before I even arrived the vanue. Sherice listened all our requests and made everything happen! I even did 4 outfit change( its a lot I know🙈) she made a perfect timeline for us. Her husband came the help out that day and took some sweet pictures. Her price is supper reasonable, totally worthy it. I would recommend her to everybody I know, she exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond!

    Manny was awesome. He delivered a great and very sincere sermon for a beautiful ceremony on the beach. It is obvious that he is a guy who is passionate about peforming weddings and takes great pride, as he should, in the work he does with this. I'd recommend Manny the wedding dude to anyone!

    Regan and I cannot thank you enough for all you did to ensure that her wedding was all that she hoped it would be. From the first, when we wanted a simple ceremony with just a few guests followed by cake and champagne with the residents, to the final day, when we had 45 people for the ceremony in the garden, followed by lunch in the Sullivan Theater and then cake and champagne with the residents in the Hemingway Room, you were amazing. Every time we needed help (Referrals for bakeries? Photographers? Hair stylists?), every time we had questions (Can we have flowers delivered to you? Can we add something to the buffet for the kids? Can we play a DVD slideshow at the reception? ), your response was always “no problem, we can do that”. The lunch buffet was delicious and plentiful (SO glad we didn’t cut the whipped potatoes with basil!), the servers were professional, and the transition from one location to the next seamless. And the little touches were so thoughtful (everyone loved the “eat, drink and be married” sign outside the reception!). You made the wedding so easy and so much fun, Melissa. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

      Missi was in charge of my entire wedding ceremony and reception. We weren't sure how everything was going to tie together or even if a few of my ideas would work at all, but because of how prepared missi was and because she has such an amazing talent for turning simple things into something truly magical, everything I hoped for became a reality. I was able to relax all day and just enjoy each moment as it passed, all thanks to her. If I could do it over again I would have hired missi sooner so we could have her creativity and fun loving personality for a little bit longer. We LOVE Missi!!!

      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.
