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!

I had a great experience with Remi & Gold. They were wonderful from the first time I talked to them about doing my wedding florals till the very day of. Always responding quickly to my questions and willing to meet my needs when I decided to have a few changes here and there. I appreciate the work they did. My florals and decor was exactly as I had planned and Imagined it and I am so thankful for their help I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding who wants wonderful florals and an amazing hand with everything else they may need.

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!

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 was a fantastic coordinator for my very DIY wedding! I thought I could handle everything myself, but as the date approached and I was completely overwhelmed, Amanda came to the rescue. We met several times to make sure things would go smoothly across all of our various venues and she kept the communication lines open. She was organized, thorough, and wonderful to work with. Even when there was a glitch with the sound equipment, Amanda kept things moving and made the night perfect. We couldn't have done it without her!

Jane was my "day of coordinator" for my wedding. She helped look at contracts and ran the rehearsal prior to our big day. Our venue had a coordinator in our package but the day would have fallen apart if it wasn't for Jane. She was amazing and fun to work with. I felt completely at ease knowing that she had everything under control. It was pouring rain on our wedding day and she helped make the decision to keep the ceremony inside. It ended up being the right decision and the day ran so smoothly. Our guests didn't even know the ceremony was originally suppose to be outside. As stressful as a wedding day can be and with bad weather to boot, it could have been a disaster. With Jane, our day was wonderful and stress free. I can't say enough positive things about her! She went above and beyond our expectations. Working with her was the best decision I made while planning our wedding!

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.

Michelle exceeded all of our expectations as far as her responsiveness, creativity and professionalism in planning our wedding. She is extremely friendly and truly cares about what she does. She went far beyond to make our day special and free of stress. She even helped us tremendously with our rehearsal dinner and to find ways to make the trip memorable to the many guests that we had attend from out of town. You would not go wrong in making her part of your event planning. Very impressive service!

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.

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.

Leigh was organized and thorough. She kept everyone on time and in line. She was a leader and likeable to all. Our wedding went smooth and basically without a hitch all due to Leigh's hard work. I highly recommend Leigh for anyone that wants to take the pressure off planning a wedding. Leigh was a pleasure to work with and we wish her the best!

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.

About

Sweet Grace Event Planning is a wedding or event planning service that will take all the stress out of your big day!

About

Uptown Events provides event and wedding planning and coordination services. We specialize in making your special event beautiful, cohesive, and stylish.

About

We begin our planning with a brainstorming session. We talk about all the possibilities for your event and then start putting it all down in writing. We create a "must have" list and a "wish list." After we have discussed all of the needs, wants and desires, we work to create a budget with you. We will assist you in creating a personal design theme around your wedding or event, including what vendors you'll need, decorations, floral packages you'd like to consider, music, etc. So many couples spend time and energy going over budget, and still, because there was no one to follow through the day of the wedding, things fall apart. We, at A Fairytale Wedding, will most definitely keep everything flowing. Days, months, and years later, you will remember how A Fairytale Wedding was crucial in making your wedding day truly what you wished and expected. We will assist you at your wedding to make sure that all your ideas happen according to plan, attending to all the needs of the wedding party.

About

I've trained with a variety of chefs and have worked in Austin's hectic catering community for over a decade now. I really enjoy the consultation process of figuring out along side the host exactly what speaks to the spirit of their individual event. I make delicious, beautiful food; and I make sure it surpasses expectations. What sets me apart from other people you'll work with is my ability and dedication to making things fun. From plating to atmosphere, parties and events should make an emotional impact on the attendees. I want people to feel good. Working my way through the rank and file of the service industry, I've experienced many a party with great potential stopped in its tracks by a lack of attention to details. I believe the mood of an event is as important as the individual components. Amazing food looses its impact if its presented in a dull setting. From personal experience, setting a mood is a confluence of several factors. Lighting, music, presentation/performances, and guest engagement all make the difference between a good time and a party that will be remembered for years to come.

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.
