40th Birthday party - I attended a function catered by Mark and his team and it was superb! The appetizers were outstanding and not only prepared but also presented to an exceptional standard. The whole event was planned and organized with precision, even down to the subtle table arrangements and informal seating. The entire team were attentive for the duration of the evening ensuring that every guest was personally looked after. Not only were they constantly serving small portions of food, but they were serving beverages and also tidying up throughout the entire evening. The whole event was so enjoyable and relaxing with a team of professionals catering to the highest standard. I would both employ and recommend Mark and his company for any private function no matter how big or small - not only are they efficient but friendly and totally blend into the occasion with ease and professionalism.

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

KNZO entertainment has done an amazing job for our wedding on 3/10/2018. We have worked with them for the past 8-10 months and it was a pretty smooth planning through out our experience working with them. They have provided easy access web tool to manage our budget and list of vendor contacts. Also - the Stacie (planner) sends out a list of to-do tasks that actually helps us keep on our toes during our wedding planning. She would provided suggestions and is willing to go an extra mile to modify any changes as needed, weeks before the wedding day. We were also recommended for preferred photography and DJ and everything worked out beautifully. They deserved a 5 star for great customer and quality services that we do not have anything negative to say but except a big hug and many thanks to her and her team. Our wedding was definitely a memorable night and we couldn't have done it without them. They are definitely and highly recommended.

Stephanie was a life-saver for our wedding day and made it very enjoyable, instead of worrying about details. She was very professional and helped guide us through planning the day-of activities as well as handled the small decorations and costumes my wife wanted at the reception. We highly recommend her, she is worth every penny!

DJ Walk It Out (Walker) was great to work with! He was able to dj my event for 250 people with only a weeks notice. The music was PERFECT! We had a mixed crowd from babies to elderly and men and women for a co-ed, family friendly baby shower. He had everyone (old and young) happy and dancing even though we didn't have a dance floor. The whole flow of the party and even music for games, fade ins and outs were on point! I highly recommend you to book DJ Walk It Out for your next event!

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 :)

We hired Party Palace for a Baby Shower! Overall, it was a good experience. I wish they had more photos of what they have done on the site when I was deciding because I can speak for most people when I say I strongly choose based on previous work experience. (I know they have been in business for less than a year so I wanted to support them too) Party Palace are hardworking people and I believe care about the end result being what the client wants.

Kari did an excellent job planning and decorating for my husband’s 65th Birthday Party. Her attention to detail is phenomenal. She can transform an ordinary room into a mystical, magical paradise. She creates memories that will stay in your heart and mind forever. She is such a visionary. You give her a few ideas and she takes it and runs with it. She takes a holistic view of the event and plans it from beginning to end - including not only decorations, but invitations, music, programs, food, souvenirs, entertainment, the works. When you entrust Kari with your event, you just have to sit back, relax and let her work her magic. She is so creative. She had so many requests for business after that event. Everybody loved it!!! If you want special memories that will last a lifetime, allow Kari to plan your event.

Lauren was very professional while being my wedding planner. She made sure I meet all dead lines and gave great ideas and feedback to my wedding. When I wasn’t sure of something or an idea Lauren eased my mind and made me feel relaxed and hubby with the decision I choose! Lauren on the day of my wedding handled everything! I didn’t have to think about anything! And if I forgot something she told me she had it covered and not to worry. My only job was to get married!! And I did just that! She was wonderful! And she treated my wedding as if it were her very own!

    Hiring Clare as our wedding coordinator was absolutely one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. It was a special blessing to be able to spend precious time with our families before our ceremony and know that Clare was setting up and making sure every detail was in place. She helped us with some last minute fixes. We were so glad to have her there to discreetly guide us through our reception when we were in our happy zone. We wouldn’t have known what to do without her there. Clare's passion for weddings combined with her organization and attention to detail truly added value to the planning of our wedding. We would highly recommend her to any couple planning their wedding.

    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.
