I had the pleasure of working with Event Decor Galore on a recent wedding where I performed as a Dj. Having experienced first hand what it is like to work with different event planners, I can't say this was one of the best experiences I've ever had. From the very start Senithia was actively involved in making sure her client's needs were being met. I was delivered detailed timelines and diagrams for the event so I was totally prepared to do my job. Everything was extremely well organized and her attention to detail was spectacular. I heard from the Bride that EDG was able to capture their vision within their budget with some "creative" ingenuity as well as by pulling in a few industry favors! I normally dont write reviews, but I had to and speak on an exceptional experience. Don't think... just book!

Joanne did my wedding makeup for me and my bridesmaids. Everyone loved their makeup and we got tons of compliments. My husband especially loved the way my makeup looked. It also lasted through the night. Joanne listened to what we wanted and delivered!

An April Affair really took care of everything for my wedding day! I was stressed out and tired from all the planning I was trying to do in a few months so I decided to reach out and get help from her services and it was amazing! Very professional and proficient.

When planning my wedding I wanted someone who was organized, helpful and would keep people focused. Jessica was amazing. She had a place for everything and everyone. I didn’t have to worry about anything. She is fun to work with and easy to talk to. I would recommend her to anyone!

Latoya was a great assistance leading up to and the day off the wedding. She was always available for questions, issues, or just to provide support amongst all the stress of being a bride-to-be. Latoya attended every meeting with us yet gave my husband and I our space to be able to enjoy the moments. She kept me on budget (which can be a tough thing) and was a great sounding board for ideas. The day of my wedding, she was there first thing in the morning to check in on how I was doing and took care of a lot of little things that needed to be completed. She kept me informed on how things were going at the reception location and the church but also kept some things quiet so that it would be a surprise. Latoya kept my wedding party on time and on target, and the transition from the church to the reception was seamless. Latoya was completely on point for all things, all day. She made sure the photographers were capturing the right moments, the other vendors were on time and setup correctly, and even watched over myself and my husband by making sure we had food and drink. She stayed late to ensure the location was spotless and that all of decorations and other personal items were accounted for and secure. She even picked up my husband's tux the next day and ensured it arrived safely and on time back to the store. Her attention to detail and overall dedication to making that day special to me made her an awesome choice as a wedding coordinator. I felt valued as a bride and a person and can't image not having here there. Latoya's passion for her work shows in every interaction, every detail, and I am happy to have worked with her.

We have thrown a lot of events for our family and tell you, having the dtouch of elegance on our side is the way to go.

      My entire experience with A Perfect Day Events was just that “A perfect day.” When preparing an important event there are so many details and things to remember. Not to mention, knowing how to put it all together in the time allotted with really reasonable prices! With this company you get a lot more bang for your buck! I had a bridal shower and wedding for very little money in comparison to others. Both events were carefully planned and designed, and looked amazing! I highly recommend this company for friendly yet professional service. My guests are still talking about how much fun they had and how beautiful everything looked!

      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.
