Barbara is amazing!!! I should start by saying that I took on most of the wedding planning on my own. Due in part to geographic distance, I knew I'd be planning and organizing most of the event on my own--and because I love to DIY, I started the process off feeling confident that I could manage everything independently. It took me months to realize that, in fact, having help--particularly from a professional who has first-hand experience--is a tremendous asset. Barbara impressed me from our very first conversation with her warmth and organization and willingness to (literally) meet me and learn about the vision my fiance and I had for our wedding. As our day-of-coordinator, she lifted a huge burden from myself and helped me organize friends and family as we all came together to celebrate. I only wish I had found Barbara sooner--I would have happily hired her to help me plan the event from the start!

Loved having our wedding here, and I highly recommend the in-house catering. We had a stellar buffet that more than satisfied all of our guests, and we had people telling us months down the road that they loved it. It was great working with Helen and getting all of our ideas out. She really made our dream wedding come true!

One of my favorite weddings that I photographed in 2014 was Aasha and David's wedding at the TFWC Mansion in Austin on June 29, 2014. Matt Kordelski with Mattkprovideo.com was the professional wedding videographer at Aasha and David's wedding. Matt worked very well with the other wedding vendors at the wedding. He also worked well with the couple. Brides, wedding vendors who can work well with your other wedding vendors as well as with you and the groom is extremely important and ensures that your big day will be a whole lot less stressful! Matt also delivers to his couples beautiful wedding videos, as you can see if you check out his wedding videography online. All in all, Matt with Mattkprovideo.com is an excellent choice for your wedding and event videographer!

Thank you Amberley & Blue Boot Events!!! I could not have had such a more beautiful, stress free experience planning my wedding with Amberley & Blue Boot Events. They lead me through the entire process, (and what a process a night like that is), with grace and ease. After doing my research and speaking with a handful of different planners, a friend of the family who had also had an excellent experience with her, referred me to Blue Boot Events. I met with Amberley and purchased her A-Z package for a very reasonable price. The enthusiasm, knowledge, and professionalism that she brought to the planning was crucial as I would have been completely lost with all the "To Do"'s there were. I would definitely recommend Amberley and her team to anyone who is planning any type of event. Major Kuddoz!!! - HappyWifeForever

Amanda did an amazing job helping us with our wedding. She made the day go so smoothly. After speaking with the Grooms father she even put together a special table for us. I highly recommend Amanda. She was very professional. She kept us on the timeline that she helped us create. We forgot long lighters for our sparkler exit and Amanda sent her fiancee to go get some for us. She listened to our ideas and the day could not have been any better! The decorations were stunning! She was very fun and easy to work with. Again, words can't explain how amazing Amanda is!

Bekah worked as the event planner for my wedding in 2014. I pulled in an event planner fairly late in the process and Bekah did a great job with moving forward with things I had set in motion. She was incredibly responsive and patient with me, the bride, but took charge with the vendors and managing all of that. On the day of the wedding she did a great job of shielding me from the chaos. I would recommend Bekah and would also use her for other events.

Alexa was my wedding planner/coordinator. I met her at a friends wedding and was in awe at the work she did at that wedding. We met had an consultation she asked lots of questions and in the end we went with her clean & cut package which is essentially full service. When I tell you she literally walked with me and Jensen hand in hand through everything until we said I do and then some, I don't know what I would have done without her. Alexa is amazing, she is my recommendation to anyone in need of an event planner.

There aren't enough words to describe how wonderful Jane is! Having her be part of our day was one of the best wedding planning decisions we made. As gay women, choosing vendors who made us feel comfortable was even more important to us. When we first met Jane she didn't even bat an eye at two ladies marrying each other. We had already had the majority of our planning set, but Jane was there when we were flipping out or when plans fell through. Specifically, we had planned an outdoor ceremony in the park, but hurricane Patricia vetoed that. Jane jumped right in during our wedding weekend and came up with a plan B and made sure all of our vendors knew what was going on so my wife and I could enjoy our weekend with our out-of-town guests. Jane really was incredibly invaluable!

I decided to have a wedding of the day coordinator 3 months before my wedding when I started having nightmares about my wedding gone wrong. I found Michelle via thumbtack. I'm so lucky I chose the right one over so many listed in the internet. I just hope that I got her at the planning phase of my wedding so I wouldn't have a hard time researching & comparing for the best wedding vendors by myself. She has a very good list of the preferred wedding vendors. Michelle has such a pleasing personality & easy to work with. She's not pushy & acted upon on what I envisioned my wedding to be. She worked within my budget. She's very professional & was prompt with her email responses. On my wedding day she executed it perfectly! The Church ceremony was solemn. The reception was organized, romantic, & beautifully decorated. I was overflowing with happiness! It was so stress free for me & for my families! We all just enjoyed the special day. My mother & mother-in-law even said that she really did a wonderful job! She was just at the background & even attended to my guests' needs. Kudos to Michelle! Again, my heartfelt gratitude! I definitely recommend her for your special event!

We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Evelyn helped us plan our wedding and served as a day of coordinator. Working with our limited budget she was able to create a truly memorable night. Her personality and work ethic will set you at ease. She was easy to collaborate with. Everybody knows how strenuous a wedding can be but Evelyn's attention to detail alleviated our stress. This October we will be celebrating our one year anniversary and will be looking back fondly on our special day.

Amber was a great help to us on our wedding day. She was affordable, but she was also experienced and made sure to follow through with our plan as we wanted. It's hard doing everything by yourself on the big day so I definitely recommend her to be your go-to person!

We could not be happier with our experience working with Leigh! My husband and I decided to do a destination wedding in Austin, and had only been to the city one other time before. Leigh after a couple get-to-know you calls hit the nail on the head when it came to selecting venues, photographers, officiants, etc. There was a "natural instinct" choice for everything. Over the course of our 6 months working with her, she kept us on track (kind of a big deal as we are so laid back we're in a different timezone), provided detailed timelines, and handled most vendor communication. Most importantly, she ensured that the "big day" ran perfectly. At the end of the experience, we felt like we had a great planner and new friend. I would recommend Leigh with no hesitation.

Lauren was a miracle worker and made our wedding day phenomenal. You should absolutely hire her for your wedding planning and coordinating needs. We originally hired “the best” local wedding planner who was highly recommended by the venue for our wedding last October. After two meetings with the original planner, it became apparent to us that she was disorganized, tardy to meetings, and we were not comfortable with her planning/coordinating our big day. We decided she was not the right fit and dismissed her, however our wedding was now 6 weeks away with no planner/coordinator and I was FREAKED out. Lauren and I have been friends since high school and literally 30 minutes after we dismissed “the best” wedding planner, an idea popped into my head of asking Lauren. Not only was Lauren thrilled but she always wanted to coordinate a wedding, I was so relieved. Lauren handled all of the major movements for us, she coordinated with all of our vendors and the venue. She also organized and led the wedding rehearsal the night prior. On the day of our wedding, she was up bright and early setting up the hall and coordinating everything. I promise you that this is an unbiased review and I am not just talking her up because she is my friend. Lauren made our wedding day run smoothly and I would highly recommend her for any of your wedding needs.

Lindsay is amazing at what she does. She was with me every step of the way when planning my wedding. She has lots of connections; so it was easy to fit my budget. My wedding budget was pretty tight. And she managed to find vendors that fit my budget and fit my expectations. She was constantly helping me set up meetings to fit my schedule. The ceremony/reception was beautiful and ran smoothly. Lindsay did everything from helping with décor, coordinating staff, helping me with my bustle and more. She has an amazing heart, is professional and truly loves what she does. I was fortunate to have her as my wedding coordinator. She made it a day I will always remember.

Calah is a planning/spreadsheet genius. She helped me organize everything from my wedding budget to all of my ideas and choices for every detail leading up to the wedding. She also did an incredible job with putting together the bouquets for my wedding party and myself! I didn't want to deal with real flowers for us because I had dealt with oil and water getting on the dresses before, so she suggested that I used fake flowers. I don't have a creative bone in my body so I let her take the lead on this and she went and bought everything and put together the bouquets and they were beautiful! So we ended up doing the same for the boutonnières and corsages.

Keye’s guidance and suggestions made our wedding day truly stress free. She was organized and took care of everything on the big day. She had wonderful vendor recommendations and the food was to die for! Her attention to detail allowed not only my husband and me to enjoy the day, but also our families and wedding party. Keye and her assistant handled all the organization and printing of the seating chart, place cards, and menus, had cocktails and hors d’oeuvres waiting for us post ceremony so we could enjoy a few minutes alone. Elegant Edge Events was wonderful and I would happily recommend their services to anyone planning a wedding.

Annie has been working with me on my wedding and she has been an amazing help throughout the planning process! She has great ideas and clearly puts a lot of thought into her work, researching for new ideas and telling me about ones that she thinks I will like. She has taken the time to meet with the venue coordinator to be sure she has all the right details, which showed me that she really cares about my wedding. She is incredibly creative and good at what she does. I would most definitely recommend her to a friend!

      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.
