We first met Tara with Simply Southern Weddings and Events in 2012 when I was planning a Christmas dinner for my large family. After feeling overwhelmed with the planning process, she stepped in and took over while keeping me informed of every last detail. I loved that she had linens, rentals and a great menu idea. I prepared the food and loved how she layed everything out so I could just set the food out. I have hired her every year since and look forward to what she has in store this year. I really wish I had found her earlier to have helped ease my stress sooner but love how she jumped in last minute and pulled it off with ease. I highly recommend her services.

I worked side by side with Eddie Clark at a Long Term Retirement Center in Lexington, North Carolina. I have the upmost respect for all of the above qualities in Eddie. His interaction with our residents was acknowledged by the residents along with their family members. He has the ability to relate with everyone at their level along with showing his professionalism. I value his friendship as a result of our working together and I value his work organization. His plans for details goes without saying. He was always organized and prepared for anything that was assigned. He always has a positive outlook on life. Eddie will be an asset for any position offered to him.

Gary & Victoria Ogbonna were professional and attentive to our needs. They fit right in and were received well by all who visited the bar. They repacked leftover product into original packaging, making it easier for us to transport after our event ended. I would definitely recommend them and already have!

Curtis was amazing to work with since day one! Very good communication and follow through! He also gives amazing suggestions and is great at what he does! I couldn't be more happy with our wedding day and a large part was because of how easy he made the process and made sure it flowed well and made sure everything was on time! I strongly recommend him to anyone planning a wedding or event! You won't be disappointed!

We had a family and friends backyard gathering. Ross catering actually did the planning to my specifications. I had an old school R&B band for 3 hrs a DJ, a photographer and a bartender and of course they did the food which was ALL GOOD. Her catering staff was so efficient we were able to really enjoy the gathering without supervising. We were also celebrating our parents anniversary.

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.
