Hi everyone! I must say that I was very impressed with Ms. K. Artisme face painting designs. She was wonderful and believe me my twin girls were besides themselves. They loved the makeup and I enjoyed watching them and the other kids at their birthday party. I planned on using her during my Halloween batch. You will not be disappointed!

My now husband and I were looking for a wedding officiant for our July 2015 wedding. Through Thumbtack we found the perfect fit in Pastor Bill Read. We left our initial meeting with Pastor Read knowing that he would provide us with the ceremony we envisioned. Prayer was important to me to incorporate into our ceremony; however, it was equally as important to my fiancé for our ceremony to follow a more secular route. Pastor Read delivered the perfect blend. Prior to the wedding day Pastor Read was in touch with us several times to ensure that we both we ready for the big day as well as to make sure the sermon was what we were expecting. Our rehearsal was well organized and we practiced until everyone understood the order of the day and its importance. On our wedding day (which, by Pastor Reads suggestion, my fiancé and I stood on a platform so that our friends and families saw us the entire ceremony) we were beyond happy with the service. Several guest commented on how much they enjoyed the ceremony. It was just the right length (about 20minutes), highlighted our wants and personalities, and was truly thoughtful and unique. Pastor Read ended the ceremony with an old Irish prayer that is very special to my husband and myself and was the perfect way to start our lives as husband and wife. I have no doubt that Pastor Read will deliver the perfect ceremony for your wedding. It is obvious that this is not something he does for money but something he does as a true service and calling. He is open to any type of ceremony; he listens to your wants, needs and concerns, and makes you feel the importance of this special day. What I have enjoyed most from working with Pastor Read is that my husband and I have found someone who is willing to help and guide us whenever needed through the ups and downs of our marriage. We strongly recommend meeting with this remarkable man and finding out for yourself how great he is. Thank you Pastor Read for making the most important part of our wedding day unforgettable!

Lorelei of Florals and events by design was the Best thing about my wedding. I was pretty stressed planning my wedding as I chose not to have Wedding Coordinator. I over planned, obsessed, micro managed myself, and all in all drove myself absolutely insane with the whole wedding thing. The Only thing that was enjoyable and a total breeze.... Was the flowers. When I walked into the venue for the first time I was moved to tears. Lorelei did such an Amazing job on my flowers I would recommend her to anybody. She worked with my budget was personable and professional and I couldn't have been happier. She even stayed at the wedding proper and helped with my dress during photos. If that's not above and beyond, I don't know what is. She is a true savant with her arrangements and art. She will meticulously ask you many questions until she is satisfied that she understands your vision. And then she will Nail it Perfectly! I will say that I am a bit... detail oriented, meticulous or even over the top and she pleased me more than any of my other vendors. Thank you Lorelei. You are a true Artist.

You NEED Hannah. You don't know it yet, but you really do need her! We hired Hannah as our day-of wedding coordinator. We orchestrated the details of our wedding ourselves, but found that we were in need of someone to be there to help bring all of those details together. I was so impressed that Hannah was sharing in my vision from the time of our first meeting! She was easy to contact throughout the weeks leading up to our wedding. She offered her insight or opinion when needed, she was there the day before our event, and was even helping us set up our lighting!!!! She was hearing me talk to her and to my family about things that needed to be done and she took those tasks upon herself and unloaded burdens from our hands one by one. Her schedule was flexible and she seemed just as invested in the success of the wedding as we were! It felt like we had a good friend there to see that our day went off without a hitch. She is confident in what she knows about weddings and came across so organized, which was very calming on the day of our wedding. I don't know what we would have done without her. HANNAH REES is who you need to help you coordinate your event!! Look no further.

I called Reves about 5 months before my big day. I had helped my cousin plan her wedding and thought that I could handle it. But my mom and I quickly became confused and we turned to Reves. I called Emelia and she took over the reigns. She brought a lot of things to light that we had not even anticipated might be an issue for us on our big day. I am so grateful that she handled our wedding from planning to décor! We had modern, up to date flare at our wedding and I was more than happy. I was overwhelmed with everything she did. It was above and beyond honestly!! Thank You Emelia from Reves!!

I hired Deserve Your Time to help out with my wedding planning. The consultant I worked with was extremely accommodating and supportive throughout the whole process. I tend to stress easily so I was immediately put at ease once I realized that Deserve Your Time had everything under control. The consultant assisted with almost every step of the planning process, from putting together guests addresses for the invitations to decorations the day of the wedding. I am forever grateful for all of the help I received and I would highly recommend Deserve Your Time services! I know I'll be using them again!

Sharrona did an amazing job planning my wedding reception. I could not ask for a better event coordinator. She explained everything clearly and honestly in regards to the look I was going for and my budget. She found a way to make all of my ideas come together tastefully. She took away the stress of my trying to plan my own wedding. I was extremely overwhelmed when I first started planning but after meeting Sharrona she took all of my anxiety away. I plan to utilize her services again in the future.

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.
