About

I received my license as a certified wedding consultant in 2000. With my continued work and research in the wedding industry, my goal is to create your vision seamlessly. Every bride should be able to enjoy their day without the stress of the wedding details. I consider myself to be your personal assistant. If you were to ask my previous brides about my services, they would tell you that they could not have done it without me. I'm sure that they could have done it themselves, but they would have had the stress to go along with it. I am confident in saying that if you choose me to help you plan and/or direct your wedding day, you will be glad that you did. I am looking forward to hearing from you!

About

While I was planning my own wedding for the past few years, I kept thinking to myself "Wow, I wish I had a wedding planner to help me with all of this!" With little guidance and a lot on my plate I navigated the huge world of weddings by myself after realizing that wedding planners were WAY overpriced. A lot of couples run in to this problem whole planning their own special day. It truly can be overwhelming and who has the extra thousands and thousands to spend on a planner? That's where I come in. I'm offering fairly priced wedding/event planning and coordination for the couples that want the extra guidance from someone who had been through the whole process themselves. From start to finish I will be there to make sure your special day is as everything you imagined it would be!

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.
