Gladys officiated our wedding with 6 days notice and it was everything we needed it to be! Gladys was more than excited to meet with us beforehand in our limited time to get to know us a bit before the wedding and learn about our relationship. When it came to the day of the wedding, Gladys was professional, warm, and made everyone feel welcome. We loved having a ceremony conducted in both Spanish and English, Gladys did a great job making both parts of the family feel included in the small beautiful ceremony we had. Our wedding was special, unique , beautiful and intimate. It could not have been all that it was without Glayds officiating.

There are not enough words to describe how amazing Boston Event Diva's is! Do yourself a huge favor and hire them immediately! We used Boston Event Diva's for our flowers and coordination and are beyond thankful for everything Jennifer and Shannon did! From taking me to the flower market to look at flowers, to walking us through every hour and detail of our wedding day, showing us samples of arrangements and centerpieces, and calming our nerves when things got stressful, Jennifer and Shannon went above and beyond! They were there for every step in the planning process, offering insight and expertise - which made our day more amazing than we expected. They executed everything we envisioned, down to the most tiny detail, and if anything went wrong the day of our wedding, I had no idea. You can trust that Jennifer and Shannon will do everything in their power to make sure your wedding day is perfect. They both even offered to get on ladders to hang out bistro lights for our outdoor dinner, with Shannon being several months pregnant! We were so thankful for their guidance, expertise, and friendship during the planning process! You will not find a better company that Boston Event Diva's! I could not imagine planning our wedding without Jennifer and Shannon!

John and his crew were wonderful at my wedding!! From the first conversation with John, he was professional and very responsive. Just through speaking to him I knew I wanted to hire him but once we had the first tasting I knew he was the best! The food was outstanding and he even made a little meal for my 2 year old son during our initial tasting as well! He is also very reasonably priced! The night of the wedding was just perfect and I think I might have hugged John a couple times before it was over! Thank you SO much for making my wedding perfect! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Belle was amazing! Last minute (very very last min) about 4 days before the wedding, I decided I wanted chairs covers for all my chairs, and a nice decoration for my sweetheart table and a backdrop. Kind of alot for last minute planning, didn't thought I would have time to get all that arrange. I created an account here inquiring for someone to hire to do this. Belle contacted me immediately and made everything so much easier for me, gave me ideas and made me feel secure that everything was going to be alright (even under the stress I was going through that week). I know God placed her in my path and that it was meant to be done by her, she is a blessing! To tell you all this, before I walked into the hall for my reception I didn't have a specific idea of what to expect of everything but I knew it would be very nice, but when I walked into the room everything was BREATHTAKING! I couldn't believe how beautiful and amazing everything looked, it was like a dream! I am sooo happy Belle reached out to me and that she made the decorations for my reception stand out, everything gave complements of how beautiful everything looked! It was so worthy! I would definetly hire her again for another event. Thank you!!! -Mayelin P.

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.

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!

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

Working with ChrisFête was absolutely amazing! The owner Christine was so attentive to all of my needs. Everyone knows how hectic planning a wedding can be and she was so calm and precise with everything she did. My wedding decor came out so beautifully and she really has a keen eye for details. People are still calling me, texting me, and posting all over social media how beautiful everything looked and that's all thanks to ChrisFête. I would recommend this company to anyone who's looking to have an event, party, or wedding and wants it to be nothing short of amazing. If your looking for something dull & lack luster then don't book ChrisFête, there's plenty of other companies for that! 10 thumbs up from me.

Our wedding reception was lovely thanks to David! We heard all the songs we asked for and none of the ones we didn't! David has a wonderful sense of humor, and kept us laughing the whole evening. There was a mix up with the exact venue, and David set up in a different building and he was a great sport about the whole thing. We were glad to have him, would recommend his services and call on him again for our DJ needs!

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!

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.

About

I am an ordained officiant who is happy to officiate weddings for people of all religions, creeds, and orientation. Helping to make a couple's ceremony personal, engaging, funny, and heartfelt is something I specialize in and absolutely love doing. The cliche that, "one never works a day in their life if they love what they do" very much rings true for me. I will meet with couples as often as needed to ensure the ceremony is perfect. I can write the entire script myself, help you write it on your own, or even deliver a standard script if you are more traditional. I often like to gather anecdotes and background information from friends and family as well, helping to further personalize the ceremony. Upon deciding to work with me, I'll deliver a guide that will help you through the daunting process of planning the ceremony. Even if you choose another officiant, I hope you will visit my site and use some of the resources I have available. Planning a wedding is hard work, and I want to help make it as special as you've always dreamed.

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.
