Pam and her team is very knowledgeable with the wedding industry. She was able to find me the perfect vendors and was easy to work with. On the day of my wedding Pam and her team did a wonderful job keeping all of my wedding party together. I highly recommend her for any wedding planning and event planning.

We hired Serendipity Weddings to officiate our beach wedding ceremony, it was a true pleasure working with Mr. Phillip Webb as he was always very professional and responsive, he asked us all of the right questions and made us feel at ease about the whole planning process. He helped us customize our ceremony by including a special reading, sand unity, seashell blessing, as well as ocean themed wording during his readings! We really appreciate his patience and dedication to making time to meet with us to plan all the details for our ceremony. Mr. Webb met with us twice prior to our wedding day and also attended our wedding rehearsal, his suggestions were very helpful!!! We really couldn't have planned our ceremony without his guidance. One thing that was truly special was that he also offered to do the blessing for our dinner service, and they also provided us with a album of beautiful high-quality photos from our wedding ceremony! We didn't expect to get all of the great features we received when we hired Serendipity Weddings, they truly went above and beyond! I highly recommend them for your wedding day, you can count on Mr. Webb! All we heard from our guests was how beautiful and unique our wedding ceremony was, and we agree!!! Thank you, Phillip! ~ Cindy & Daniel Martinez

Stephanie was absolutely wonderful to work with! She really kept my mind at ease while keeping me informed all day. She was easy to work with and was always willing to help with details. She had everything perfectly planned out and our wedding went off without a hitch. I would recommend her to anyone that was planning their wedding. Definitely worth the money for the stress relief that she provided.

Mike and I are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Bella Luna Bridal & Occasions. I knew Lisa would be my wedding planner after reading her very FIRST email! I chose the full service planning because I am NOT a planner at all so I had the pleasure of working with her for a year! The description for full service planning states-stress NOT included… That is 100% accurate! Lisa and Brandy’s service and expertise made the wedding planning process stress free and fun! Lisa provided us with this awesome checklist in the very beginning and on top of that, Brandy would send me a reminder every month of what needed to be done. They responded quick to my emails, and always had great suggestions and feedback to any of my questions. I loved their honesty about anything and everything! On our wedding day both Lisa and Brandy were everywhere making sure everything was perfect! My reception flowers had baby’s breath and Lisa knew 100% that I did NOT ask for baby’s breath! Lisa and Brandy fixed my flowers immediately! These girls do NOT play! I told Brandy and Lisa I need to have 5 minutes alone to eat my cake and drink my baileys and coffee- this is necessary. I almost forgot about it, but I came back from the restroom and there was my sweet Brandy waiting for me with cake and coffee! I absolutely love Lisa and Brandy! My wedding was amazing! Our friends and family are still talking about our wedding! I could not have done it without Bella Luna Bridal & Occasions! If you are reading this review, you are most likely looking for a wedding planner! Well look no further because Bella Luna Bridal & Occasions is who you need to be emailing, calling, or messaging on FB to be help you plan the wedding you’ve been planning since you were a little girl! Thank you so much Lisa and Brandy for helping me plan the best day ever! I miss y’all so much! XOXO, Mr. and Mrs. Michael Botello

Words can not even express how thankful I am that I found Events by Momo for my wedding. Truly the greatest experience with Moon and the whole staff from beginning to end. Momo is a full service events company, she helped me with every aspect of my wedding from tenting, to vendors, to phenomenal catering. Moon was in direct contact with me constantly, she helped me with choices and even helped me save money and stick with my budget. I hired her for day of wedding planning but she went above and beyond with helping me leading up to the wedding. She was so calm and go with the flow, exactly what I needed. I would choose to work with Moon again for any event, I would recommend her for any bride to be. Her company, Events by Momo, is professional, relatable, kind, and friendly. It was like having good friends attend your wedding that just happen to run the show, feed you, and clean up! Thank you Moon for everything you did, thank you thank you thank you.

Kim did an amazing job with the floral requests for our wedding! I was dreaming of a grand floral piece for our ceremony arch (inspired by a Pinterest post which can sometimes be a set up for disappointment) but she executed my dream BEAUTIFULLY! I was absolutely thrilled with her work, and she was lovely to work with. Her price point was very reasonable and the quality far exceeded my expectations! Thank you, Kim :)

I recently hired Surreal Occasion Events to plan my dream wedding and reception. Jahneiss was very prompt and professional, and made this a stress free experience. She contacted my vendors and made sure that things were getting done so that everything flowed smoothly on the day of the wedding. The decorations were very classy and fit perfect with my theme and vision. Thanks to Surreal Occasion Events I had the best wedding planning experience and my wedding was everything I wanted it to be and more.

Legendary Events is the best there is. They are true professionals and it is obvious they genuinely enjoy what they do! Jasmine is such a sweetheart. She ensured that everything was in order and made sure that my wedding day was legendary, as she promised it would be. I highly recommend Legendary Events to all who desires to make a grand statement at their events.

Kari did a PHENOMENAL job with our wedding! The florals were spot on and everything was exactly as I’d envisioned. Kari was so patient with me and was able to sympathize with how I was feeling, you know planning a wedding and all (lol). She even threw in a few extras where she could to accommodate our strict budget! I would highly recommend La Chantel to my friends and family. She is truly the BEST!

Lauren is an amazing wedding planner. I hired her as a "day of" planner because I decided late to even get a planner. She was right there by my side the moment we signed the contract and I quickly found out that a "day of" starts helping you months in advance. It was a wonderful thing because I had a lot on my plate and needed all the help I could get. There was a few things I didn't have done and she took care of them for me in stride. For example: she asked me day one "what have you not done" the biggest thing on my mind at the time was the linens for the tables. So I told her and I didn't know where to start. I thought I would get some advice and instead she sent me a list of vendors and set up appointments with them right away. It was amazing! I was out of town and her taking that sort of initiative that quick was a huge reassurance I hired the right person for the job. Everything was that easy, even on the day of the wedding. She kept in contact with me daily and had answers for everything. What was even better was when I had to connect her to other vendors. The florist, Dj, photographer, etc., they all really enjoyed working with her. Some of them even added her to their preferred vendor list! They saw right away what I got to see day in and day out, she's detail oriented, organized, to the point, friendly, professional and knows a lot about weddings. She also comes up with amazing ideas along the way to help you save money. She did all of this, planning my wedding, plus held other jobs, it surprised me she had the same 24 hours in a day that I do with how much she accomplished all of the time. The day of the wedding was just as smooth with her as the planning process. She could tell when I would get nervous about something not going according to plan, calm me down and moved forward with a new plan. She really works well under pressure!! She even brought assistants on the day of and they followed her stride accordingly with no issues. I didn't get a lot of interaction with them but I had guests ask what company she was from because they could see the professionalism. I would recommend Lauren to anyone I know who needs help plannning any sort of large event (not even just weddings, she's that good!) . I honestly can't think of any negatives which is refreshing because she is the only vendor I had that experience with and that's almost impossible to find!

Alexandra helped to make our day amazing. We are so happy we hired her. Our wedding would have been much more stressful without Alexandra's guiding hand, and she helped us with so many things. Planning a wedding is something I had no experience with, and having a professional like Alexandra on board made all the difference.

I knew about of Durami Events and Rentals from a wedding I attended at La Torretta Resort and Spa in Conroe, which all guest were blown away by the decorations and coordination they provided. My fiancée insisted on using the same vendor. We set up an appointment and booked them, from beginning to the end of my wedding planning and execution they made it an amazing experience. I always recommend them to all my friends and family for events.

My brothers and I were arranging a 50th Anniversary Party for our parents, and as the time came close we realized we did not have it set up to really have a good time. We got in contact with Shawn with less than 2 weeks till the event and we changed the location at that time also. Shawn came up with options that we quickly decided on and contacts for the catering, (early snacks and main lunch) party set up with tents and tables, a low key DJ that worked out perfectly, a cake vendor that was so supportive on the day - some slight damage was enough to bring her out to house to fix. In the critical 2 weeks before the event - Shawn helped us finalize and make it happen for my parents 50th anniversary party with every aspect covered and on time for the day. With 80 cousins / aunts / friends arriving there were no mistakes or hiccups at all. The day went off so well (my mom fought against the gathering but that day she was in tears with joy over the event...) my mom still claims it was one of the best days of her life to have such a gathering. Thank you Shaun for helping us throw this great anniversary party for our parents. I am so grateful for your professionalism and expert advice, with a personal touch that made it so easy to have a great day! Your contacts and recommendations all worked out so well. I would recommend your services to anyone and everyone that is looking to have a party and could use help in making it truly a great event!

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
