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!

There are no words to describe Steve & Cindy..... Outstanding, Amazing, Marvelous, Extraordinary, Impressive, Incredible, Fabulous; are just a few that come to mind when thinking about this Husband and Wife team! From the moment we hired Steve & Cindy they have been awesome. I had never used a DJ before so i really didn't know what to expect, but I can say that SRD went above and beyond what I was expecting. It felt as if they were the hosts and I was the guest, which was a big relief and I was able to enjoy myself on my special day. Steve & Cindy kept in contact with us throughout the wedding planning, even showed up to our rehersal the night before. They help you plan out your timeline, even throwing in a few helpful suggestions to make things go a bit smoother. I honestly don't think that they could have done a better job. They kept the timeline together, Steve coming up to me to make sure I wanted this done next and that done afterwards. And they definatley kept the party going! They did an excellent job of keeping the dance floor crowded, if the party started to die down they would play something to get everyone back out onto the floor. All night long my guest kept coming to me and telling me that they were having a blast and that the DJ's were wonderful. Steve really knows how to connect with people :-) I have to say the saddest part of the whole experience was saying goodbye to Steve & Cindy at the end of the night. They did such an amazing job and treated us so good that we just LOVE LOVE LOVE them. All I have to say to Steve & Cindy is "Thanks for everything & plan on coming to our Anniversary Party next Halloween!"!! If you are looking for a DJ then SRD Entertainment is a MUST! I promise you that you won't be disappointed!!!!! - Richard & Tiffany G.

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!

Kelci was a great help for our wedding! I didn't have any idea where to start and Kelci helped us through the whole process of planning. We were also planning our wedding from out of state and it was a great help to have someone on the ground to assist. All the people she suggested were great and she was very budget conscious with her suggestions. She also did our florals, which were beautiful. We had people asking us where we had gotten our flowers done! On the day of, she was a great help. She made sure everyone was coordinated and made sure Matt and I got a chance to eat our food and enjoy the reception.

I could not imagine planning my wedding without a wedding planner like Donna. From start to finish she kept everything extremely organized and on track. From managing and scheduling all my vendor meetings and quotes to preparing all the decorations to take to the venue, Donna had everything under control. Her style choices were right on point. All the little details and decor that went into my wedding were styled and executed by Donna (and they were awesome)! If you are looking for excellent taste, vision, organization, knowledge, and competence, Donna is the perfect choice.

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!

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!

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.
