The review that was written on 7/13/14 by whomever, listen to how business should have been properly conducted on your end. I had a similar situation with SRD, unable to afford the deposit fee until after the 1st of the month, I met with Cindy on around the 16th or 17th. I explained that I only got paid twice a month and all my last check went to bills, however before leaving the consultation I KNEW that SRD was who I wanted at my wedding. I signed the contract, and even though I left without a copy, I still felt awesome about the experience. I stayed in contact with Cindy via email ever 2 or so weeks until I finally made my deposit and she came out to see my venue. If they do not have a signed contract from you and they do not hear from you in a certain amount of time, you can not point the finger and blame them for your horrible experience in wedding planning. Think about how many couple they meet with who say they will call and never do because they hired someone else. They are looking out for the better of their business, just like any other business owner would do. Please don't write reviews while emotional, it is always best to write a review 24 hours after the matter. I wish you the best of luck with your future wedding plans and I hope everything turns out Fabulous for you. P.S. Cindy is absolutely a dream to work with, cant wait for my Big Day!!

Cathy was such a delight to work with. Throughout the wedding planning process, people were asking me, "So, are you stressed?". And I would think about it, and respond, "Not really!". Cathy and her team made the experience so easy. She knew what I liked, and contributed wonderful ideas that matched my personality. She also did a TON of the work... buying decorations, editing invitations, making place cards, communicating with all of the vendors, etc.! She remained organized, level-headed, and patient with our indecisiveness. I would HIGHLY recommend Cathy and her team to any brides who want to truly enjoy the wedding planning experience. I honestly have no idea how my family and I would have been able to survive the process without her!

We are incredibly thankful for Tiffany! She was absolutely amazing and very professional throughout the entire ceremony and reception process. I could not have asked for a better day-of coordinator. I regret not hiring her earlier into the wedding planning as a full wedding planner! She came into the picture when I had mostly everything settled. But she did have to deal with a few bumps in the road. Magnificent professionalism. Our wedding day was stress-free because I knew she had everything under control. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. She even surprised us with a little video the morning after our wedding. We loved watching the little clips and pictures she took throughout the day. Thank you Tiffany!

Lynn was absolutely AMAZING! As a bride, I could not have asked for anything more for my wedding. Lynn understood my vision, and executed if perfectly. She was incredibly organized, budget conscious, and always gave me great advice. She was available at all times, and quick to respond to all my questions or calm my fears. She helped me select my vendors, and worked through all the details with them. She was extremely warm and friendly; not only to me and my fiancé, but to our guests, the venue staff, and all of our vendors. She made the whole experience very enjoyable, and I cannot thank her enough. It has been several months since my wedding, and many of my friends and family are still raving about my wedding. If you are looking for any help planning your wedding, Lynn is a person I would absolutely recommend for the job, and already have!

There are not enough words to describe how amazing Kristen was. I'm not going to lie -- my husband fought me on hiring a wedding planner. He thought we did not need one and we shouldn't worry about it. However, immediately after the wedding, as we were driving away, he said, "The best investment we made for this wedding was Kristen." Kristen made our day unforgettable. Everybody warned me that I would not remember a detail about my wedding day because I would be so preoccupied before and during the wedding. Kristen made sure to take all of the responsibility and details of the wedding into her own hand. She organized parts of the wedding that my husband and I did not know existed in a wedding. She made sure we were fed, our drinks were full, and that we were having fun. I would hire Kristen a thousand times again. She dealt with my crazy attitude, with my family, and even kept my husband's groomsmen in check. If you hire Kristen, you will be getting your moneys worth. She is amazing and I highly recommend her services!

For every bride who ever said to herself "I don't need a wedding planner" let me tell you "YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR MIND." These ladies should not be called wedding planners they should be called Fairy Godmothers because the work that they do goes above and beyond. First and foremost they are super organized which makes someone like me feel very at ease, there is nothing worse than a scatter-brain planner. They have so much experience and such an amazing positive attitude that planning our wedding was actually a fun experience. The day of the wedding we didn't have to worry about anything, we had an amazing time. Thank you ladies for understanding our vision, for being patient with us and for making our wedding one that our friends have yet to stop talking about. #keepintouch #chicharrones :)

Hannah made my daughters wedding smooth and effortless. She saw to details I hadn’t even thought of! Really would not have been the same quality wedding without her coordinating.

We hired Janelle just a few days before the wedding and we were so happy that we did! Se did a custom pkg for us that ended up being perfecdt for us. She had a package for set up and clean up, and we did that but we also added a few separate services. She put together all of our centerpieces, picked up my dress and helped with some other crafts that I hadn't finished. Withoug hiring her, I don't know if I would have walked down the aisle with my hair done or not! I only wish that I had hired her sooner!

I’m that person who hates planning! I got engaged in September and wanted to get married at the end of March. At the beginning of March I had literally nothing done. When I found Lauren, I told her how important that date was to me and she just took charge and had my whole wedding planned in about 3 weeks. All I had to do was answer a string of “yes” or “no’s” to options she would give me. Not only did she do everything for me, she was very hands-on. We got to the venue late and my hairdresser had already shown up so I had to go sit and get ready with none of the decorations set up. I could see everything from the window and watched Lauren hauling tables and chairs across the lawn, down a hill, to set them up. I felt really guilty sitting there getting pampered while she was doing all the hard work. My wedding was absolutely gorgeous and looked like a storybook. None of it would have come together without Lauren!

Cathleen is very creative! She handled all aspects of a wedding shower that I gave -- the invitation, floral, tablescape and menu selections. Cathleen is flexible, and went above and beyond to make my event a success.

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.
