I had 4 staff members (2 bartenders and 2 wait staff) for my wedding on 8/18 and they were phenomenal! We created a day-of itinerary for them, but they went above and beyond throughout the day. I always saw them working and being very pleasant with all of our guests. Our tables were always clean, and the drinks were perfect. We gave them a long list of to-dos, which included setting up our wedding cake and cupcake display even, and they did it perfectly and with minimal guidance. At one point, I even remember standing in our loft while guests were doing a line dance and I noticed a cupcake tier was wobbling like crazy. Before I could do anything about it, I immediately noticed that one of the staff members moved it around and redistributed the weight so that it was sturdy. Great services, would highly, highly recommend!

I had the pleasure of working with Kathy, during the planning and the day of my wedding. She was with Levy Restaurants and worked at PNC Park, at that time. During the planning phases of our special day, she was able to accommodate my busy schedule and was always available when I needed something. Kathy is a very organized event planner, who is in tune with what someone is looking for, in creating and executing their special event. If anything went wrong the day of our wedding, I had no idea, as she fixed any issues that may have occurred before I knew about it. I feel very confident in recommending her to anyone out there looking to plan a small or large special event.

Lawrence and I are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Magan with Blue Forest Studios. Magan and her team were extremely professional and provided quality customer service. They went above and beyond to make my wedding everything I dreamt it would be. We called only 9-weeks from the wedding we had nothing... no decorations, linen, flowers, favors, or any vendors for the ceremony and reception. When I called Magan I was a mess. She was so calm and collected, came in and saved our wedding! All our family and friends complimented how beautiful it was. Blue Forest Studios really put us at ease and made us feel genuine. Magan made sure we were taken care of. We have already recommended Blue Forest to our friends! Thank you for everything! Sincerely, Lawrence & Sarah

From the moment I contacted Monica until the day of my niece's wedding she was on top of things. I gave her very little time to pull it all together like one day shy of 3 weeks! However, she eagerly accepted the challenge. She's very organized and her primary goal is to make the brides dreams and expectations come true. It's all about them and what they want and she definitely gives it her all along with soothing any anxiety that you may be experiencing. I had the opportunity to see the banquet room before Monica began decorating. The tables were set and it looked nice but plain. After the ceremony I went back to the room and what I saw was amazing! It was like walking into a fairytale! Beautiful, elegant, magical, romantic; I can't find enough words to describe what she did to transform this room. Everything from the hallway entrance to the bridal, gift, cake, memory, cookie, and guest tables were transformed from drab to elegant!! The look on Jessa's face when she walked in was nothing short of amazement! Monica you went above and beyond exceeding my expectations. I never dreamed it would be so wonderful! If you want perfection and a total transformation, you need to use Monica for your event. She's very passionate about her work and is a perfectionist. She's able to improvise and turn something simple into a vision of beauty. I can't thank you enough Monica for what you have done for us. Also thanks for making Jessa's dreams of a perfect wedding come true! Denise

It's clear that Fiona loves everything wedding-related, and she brings that experience and enthusiasm with her throughout the entire process. She is organized, meticulous, and reliable. I know that I can rely on Fiona to be open and honest about any questions or concerns I might have. She also has many connections to vendors and resources throughout the Pittsburgh area, which is extremely useful. Fiona helped take our relatively modest budget and plan a wedding beyond my expectations. Highly recommended!

    I used Matthew and David of Coordinated 360 to DJ my wedding last year. I was impressed by their professionalism and help in the planning process. Our family was concerned about the music selection and they made sure the playlist was to our satisfaction. We really danced the night away.

    On September 29, 2015, Jennifer Johns, owner and operator of Events by Jenny was the coordinator for our outdoor farm wedding in Somerset County Pennsylvania. Jennifer had previously communicated and met with us to assist us on our big day. She offered very many helpful tips, was punctual, very friendly, accommodating, and most of all patient. Jennifer’s attention to detail was meticulous and was able to transform our ideas and bring them to life the day of the wedding. Jenny arrived at the venue at approximately 10:30 a.m. and began to set up the tables for guests, food, deserts, bar, and gifts. She arranged our tables and decoration more elegantly than we were able to imagine and describe. Throughout the event, she kept us on track and on time, she was able to assist us with all of our needs from drinks, to food, and elderly guests special needs. Some of the most valuable help was intercepting questions, giving direction, and guidance to other vendors and the property owners. Jennifer was extremely diligent and I was amazed with the amount of items she was able to handle at one time while keeping everything beautiful and progressing flawlessly. She even assisted in helping the caterers clean up as the event was transitioning from dinner to the party. Jenny was the best money we spent on our wedding day and looking back, I am not sure it would have turned out as magical as it was without her. Jennifer was a true professional in every aspect, and was very knowledgeable and helpful. Her experience with large events is priceless when it comes to the day of the event and she was pivotal in our and guests experience. Thank you Jennifer!!!!! Olivia & Kevin Glatz

    Everything was beautiful! Just as I would have hoped it would be. They had the every detail taken care of that I asked for and went above and beyond taking care of things. I'd highly recommend working with them for your next 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.
