Justice Gladys is a one woman army. If you want you wedding day to be special look no more. When we requested her to offciate our wedding she helped us with the venue and the food, She even sat with us for to customize the ceremony according to our story. We are from India and she was so creative that she very subtly did a fusion of Hindu and Christian marriage which each and every guest applauded as well. I am very happy and blessed that I chose Gladys to do the wedding and I am sure she is the Best :)

We loved working with the Boston Event Divas team!! Our wedding had a lot of moving parts and 2 locations for the ceremony and reception. Thank goodness we had the girls to make sure everything ran smoothly. If you are planning a wedding yourself I highly recommend hiring a planner to make sure none of the details are missed. Jen & Shannon were outstanding, best choice for our special day!!

It was such a pleasure to work with John throughout our wedding planning process and ESPECIALLY on the day of our wedding. We would recommend him as one of our top vendors. It is a very close tie in praise between how amazingly good the food was and how professional and prepared his team was. All of the guests enjoyed the meal, which given our last minute changes due to weather, was an amazing improvisation by John to get all of the food out timely and everything was delicious. Picking our menu and doing our tasting was one of the best parts of the planning process and John made it so easy. He had excellent suggestions and was willing to talk through all of our priorities and wants for our day. The final result was a beautifully presented meal that everyone raved about. His team worked so hard the day of our wedding, but multiple guests commented on the positivity and joy they brought to the venue. Everyone was smiling and went above and beyond to provide excellent service. Once we found J&L Catering, it was hard to find a better value for our money for the extent of the services John and his team provided. We would recommend him to anyone in the future for any catering needs.

Classique Impressions did a MARVELOUS job decorating for my sisters wedding. After a last minute fiasco from our former decorator, we had already given up the dreams of having an elegant and beautiful hall. But it was just unbelievable the quality of service we got. The linen was so beautiful! The ceiling draping, lighting,centerpieces, backdrop and sweetheart table made everyone go woah! The detailing was amazing! And to imagine that I paid less for a lot more that what others had charged is just unimaginable!  Yes! Yes! Yes! I will recommend Classique 100 times over and over again! I absolutely adored the service i got. You guys will be getting so many referrals from me!!!!!!!   Thank you so much Classique! Queen Souleman

I met with Jen at the Pawtucket Public Library on Wednesday June 22, 2015 and she was outstanding. Jen was very nice, listened to my needs, wants, and concerns. She made the stress of planning a wedding go away, she made me feel comfortable and like I could do this. I will be using her services for my engagement photos and as a wedding planner. I am very pleased with her so far I only had one meeting with her but so far it has been wonderful.

Planning a destination wedding in Newport, RI in 6 months while living hundreds of miles away, working full time, moving once cross-country, finding a new job, starting a new job, etc, etc, is no easy task, even with a wedding planner! With everything going on in my life, plus the short timeframe (the wedding date we selected was 6 months out from the day we secured the venue), and the fact that I am a perfectionist, I knew I was going to need help. I was lucky enough to come across SYB Event Planning while on Thumbtack. I interviewed a few companies and ended up selecting SYB because Soraya, the owner, and I really clicked while talking on the phone. While I wasn't necessarily looking for a cultural wedding, I knew she would understand some of the nuances with our families because my husband and I come from different cultural backgrounds. Soraya specializes in taking the time to understand different cultures and she goes out of her way to embed as much or as little as you want of you or your partner's culture into your wedding. I'm so glad I had Soraya for the entire wedding planning process and for the day of the wedding. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and totally exceeded my expectations (this is a perfectionist speaking...just for some perspective). I don't think that could have been possible without having Soraya helping along the way. She challenged me to think about things I would have never thought of and took care of all the details. She went above and beyond to make sure the wedding was as successful as it could be. She even drove over 90 miles each way to get us a cute favor that we really wanted for our guests...without hesitating! I didn't even ask her, but when she heard me talking about what I would like to do if the place was closer, she just jumped in and said she would take care of it. I'm so thankful for everything Soraya did to make our special day a success and would highly recommend her to anyone trying to plan a wedding.

Kelly did the day of coordination for my wedding, and all the pre-work to prepare for the day. She helped find additional staff, suggest vendors, and essentially anything I asked of her. Kelly was truly amazing and saved my wedding in so many ways! From the moment I hired Kelly, she gave me peace of mind and assurance that everything will be perfect. There is a lot of effort and coordination that goes into making a wedding, Kelly was right there with me along the way. As somebody who has orchestrated many events, she gave thoughtful suggestions to ensure my event was planned perfectly. She was always in contact, answered all my emails promptly, and calmed every worry and question I had prior to my wedding. She went over my plan and wishes in great detail to ensure she knew exactly what I wanted and how I wanted everything. The day of she was a wedding saver. I got everything I planned executed as requested and the event ran without any issues (at least none I was award of), Kelly did that great of a job. I spent my wedding day dancing, enjoying the wedding I dreamed of, and visiting my family and friends, while Kelly worked extremely hard to ensure everything went as planned. She did an outstanding job and my wedding day was beyond my expectations. Thank you Kelly for everything that you did and all the things I don't know about, you were truly one of the best decisions I made during my wedding planning!

Trudi was very helpful in planning my mother's 93rd birthday party. She looked into restaurants and private rooms for our event and then found us the perfect place with a fantastic jazz trio who played music of my mum's era and more. Trudi recommended the florist, the birthday cake bakery and offered many helpful ideas to make the evening wonderful. The food and service at the restaurant Trudi recommended were great. I'm so glad I found Trudi. She made my mother's birthday fun, unique and memorable. Everything went smoothly and my mum is still talking about her lovely birthday party!

Everyone needs the Professional Maid of Honor at their wedding or event! Katelynn took initiative in so many ways before and on the day of my wedding. Leading up to the event, Katelynn was a great listener. She heard and understood what I envisioned for the day when other people didn't, she helped me think thorough back up plans in case of rain, and when the day came she coordinated everything seamlessly. It's true what everyone says, your wedding day flys by! Having Katelynn there allowed my husband and I to spend more time chatting with our guests. While we were enjoying ourselves, Katelynn made sure the day flowed as planned. She started the transition from cocktail hour to dinner, made sure our speakers were ready to give their toasts, transitioned us into the dance hall after dinner, and so much more. I could go on forever about all the helpful things Katelynn did on our wedding day. What I loved most about working with her was her fun and positive attitude. She took on every change or task without hesitation. Any stress or worry we had about the wedding day running smoothly disappeared once we found and talked with Katelynn. I would recommend The Professional Maid of Honor to anyone and everyone! You will not be disappointed when you hire Katelynn. She will go above and beyond to make sure your event or wedding day is everything you hoped it would be. Kristen & Matt Talbot Wellfleet Wedding May 13, 2017

We hired Adam/Advanced Production and Design for design/decorating/lighting for our daughter's outdoor tent wedding. I wanted a stately, high end look that was affordable. I presented pictures with my wish list and was looking for direction that would accomplish the look I was going for. Adam's professionalism and experience was apparent from our first correspondence. He guided me towards a design that was absolutely perfect for the look that I wanted to achieve. After receiving the proposal and deciding on the final design I had a 100% confidence that I had the right production company. The look was exactly what I wanted and more. It was the icing on the cake and in between!!! Not only was it absolutely beautiful but the ambiance he created set an amazing mood that was beyond my vision. I would recommending Adam and Advanced Production and Design to anyone looking for high quality service and design for any event they are planning. Thank you for your outstanding service and professionalism!! I hope we have the opportunity to work with you in the future!

My fiancee and I had one simple request to keep our wedding planning and wedding day stress free. Amanda has more than exceeded our expectations. She saved us a lot of money, providing props, design recommendations, averted so many foreseeable crises months before the wedding started. She was flexible with my family's needs, and collaborated with my in-laws in wedding preparations. She ended every call with "Let me know if you can think of anything else you need..." She missed our rehearsal dinner after our rather awful florist messed up our flowers last minute. Amanda was almost like a part of our family, honoring both my needs and my family's, finding peaceful solutions where she could. The wedding turned was like a fairytale. For someone as laidback and almost absent in my wedding planning, Amanda stepped up and turned what I thought was going to be a beautiful day into an extraordinary experience for me and my now husband! Thank you so much!

I spoke with Samantha several times before my wedding date, and we met once before. She completely understood my vision and I was able to go into my wedding day with complete confidence she would be able to handle anything. Everything went perfectly (at least she made it seem that way) and she executed everything how I dreamed. She was professional yet extremely friendly the entire experience, she was a saving grace for my wedding!

Phedorah of POMP is Amazing! As a stressed and frazzled bride, I booked POMP just a few weeks before my wedding to handle the day of coordination and Phedorah went above and beyond to ease my fears. Everything from late night/early morning check-ins to making sure I ate breakfast on the big day was thoughtfully and professionally executed by Phedorah. I would highly recommend POMP and it's services!

I had an amazing experience, and so glad I decided to book EB events for my small wedding. I booked last minute, and I loved how they were understanding and accommodating to my busy timeline. My guests, loved how they were received. Just recently while talking to a friend I asked about the slippers I saw her wearing at the end of my wedding. I had seen another guest with these slippers and found it odd. It turns out they must have been given to guests by EB events after hearing some guests say their feet hurt. Totally unexpected, not something that I had thought of but thankful for having EB events look out for my guests while I was busy. Definitely did the job of taking care of details for me.

We had the great pleasure of asking Meredith to plan our first Baby Shower. As we were out of state transplants as the husband/father i got tagged to coordinate. In typical fashion I reached out to someone with Expertise, Meredith. Talk about a god send, she managed all aspect for us, Location, Invitations, menu. It was the hit of the town event and have had our friend years after still talk about it! I entrusted Meredith with everything and she did not disappoint. We have already discussed our 25th wedding anniversary which is still 8 years out.

I worked with Janie for my wedding. She was so attentive not just to me and my husband but to the whole wedding party!! From picking up last minute things for my honeymoon, organizing our rehearsal to dealing with the venue manager ~ she honestly took every worry away for me! I could not have asked for anything more in my wedding coordinator. She made us feel like we were her #1 priority and I would highly recommend her to anyone!!

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.
