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!

Will was absolutely wonderful! We had an intimate little wedding of 30 people, but even with that low of a head count, there was so much to be coordinated. He took charge in the best way possible--very courteous and collaborative. He was so pleasant to work with and so calm under pressure. He also had such nice mannerisms dealing with all the guests and our wedding party. People loved him. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect because of him and I can't say enough good things about him! Just know that you're in good hands and with him, you'll be able to enjoy every single minute of your special day with no stress or worry!

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

Bella Vita ended up canceling their services for insurance reasons. They gave me several months notice which is nice and referred me to another bartender. Just worrisome because my wedding is on a busy weekend.

We loved working with Absolutely Beautiful. They organized our wedding. Everything was perfect. Just what we wanted. Marianna was full of creative ideas and was fun to work with. We even came in under budget. We would recommend Absolutely Beautiful to anyone looking for a special, unique wedding or event.

Madison did an excellent job day-of coordinating for my wedding. She thought of things I hadn't thought of, was incredibly kind and professional, and I'm confident could have handled quite a few wrenches thrown her way (though fortunately we didn't have many!). I can't recommend Madison enough!

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!

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!

    Antje is an extraordinary human wing in all ways and the events she produces reflect this truth in spades. There are always Spaces for relaxing, connecting and of course interacting through movement and beautifully curated music. I could not recommend more highly having Antje involved in any creative project from hosting dance events, to larger event production (including wedding planning!).

    Tarah was absolutely hands down the BEST planner I could have ever had. She's very organized, attentive to detail, and extremely professional. She met with us prior to the wedding and went over a complete lists of "to do's" so that we would be sure to not forget anything on the day of. I was completely clueless about the type of decorations or setting I wanted and asked her to just "make it beautiful." She had amazing ideas that were both simple and reasonable, making it a complete stress-free experience for me. When it came to the actual wedding day, she was on top of everything. Everything worked like clockwork and if anything happened that wasn't part of the plan, I didn't know about it. She was literally a text message away (even while taking care of setting everything up!) and was still able to take care of last minute family dramas. Even my vendors had only the best things to say about her! Absolutely wonderful experience!

    The Dashers are amazing!! I manage a wedding venue and love it when they are in the building. Always professional and fun, I never hesitate to recommend them! When I went to get married I knew they had to be involved and they rocked my event! If you want people that are warm, inviting and go the "extra mile" to make sure your event is perfect, then look no further! Thank you so much Dashers!!!

    Kelsey was our day of coordinator and we couldn't be happier with the service we received. Her communication is wonderful. She was incredibly responsive and very detail oriented. Everything was in place and scheduled well before the day of our wedding. She was on top of everything and kept us all on schedule. We had a good crew of friends and family to help us set up and tear down and she managed them all beautifully. My now husband couldn't quit raving about how happy he was I hired her. She made our day stress free. All we had to do was show up, get ready and get married. It was perfect. I would recommend her without hesitation. She is highly professional and was totally invested in making sure our wedding went smoothly. Initially, I had thought I would not use a coordinator but hiring Kelsey was one of the best decisions I made. Because of her, I was able to enjoy my wedding and not worry about anything. I would recommend her to any bride without hesitation.

    Toni did an outstanding job as our wedding planner. We were short on time (8 weeks) and we asked Toni to plan the whole thing - location, flowers, cake, DJ, etc. She did an amazing job. Toni is fun to work with, a good communicator, very proactive, detailed orientated, and will follow through. She's also persistent in trying to get the best of everything at reasonable prices. Our wedding turned out even better than we expected and we had tons of positive comments from our guests. We'd highly recommend Toni for any wedding or special event.

    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.
