My husband and I hired Floyds DJ Services for our May 13, 2017, ceremony in Woodbridge, Va. Finding a DJ had proven to be my toughest task during the wedding planning phase. . . that is, until Kacey responded to my request for information. She's pleasant, easy to work with and was always responsive. The constant threat of rain for our outdoor ceremony has us wavering on whether we'd be outdoors or move the ceremony inside. Kacey remind flexible as we didn't make the final call until just hours before the ceremony was to start. We were lucky enough to have BOTH Kacey and her husband, DJ Unknown, for our ceremony and reception. He is a GREAT hype man, and together, they read the crowd and played the right mix of old-school jams (as I requested) and current Top 40 Hits (including a ton of songs from my personal playlist suggestion). DJ Kacey even got on the dance floor to lead the crowd into a line dance and help get the party started. Their sound system was super crisp and there wasn't a single glitch! We had selected a final song to be played, and when it came time, DJ Kacey and DJ Unknown surprised us with a PHENOMENAL send off by having our guests line up in a receiving line to end the day. In a word, it was pure magic! Floyds DJ Services is a true example of exceptional quality that doesn't break the bank. I'd recommend them 10 times over! -Kevin G.

Everything about our experience with Catering Reserved was incredible. Dianna Gilbert showed immense professionalism, and was the perfect caterer for our wedding reception. We are so grateful for everything she did and would not hesitate to recommend her, and the company.

Working with EA was amazing... from start to finish. Their responsiveness, their professionalism and their vision--had me from day one. From the time of first contact, Shavonna calmed me and reassured me that EA could turn my vision into a reality. We hired EA for event design--and they did just that! Every picture I sent and every idea I conveyed was implemented to the fullest extent. EA received kudos from my venue and my wedding planner for their efficient manner for getting the job done, as well as the exquisite design details. When my new hubby and I were introduced, as we walked into the ballroom, I literally cried. As a bride, planning for months, you can never imagine just HOW it will all pull together--your vision, your ideas, your dreams--that makes you so very nervous. As we walked through the crowd to start our first dance, I remember thinking "it is literally dead-on...they nailed my vision dead-on..." I remember telling Shavonna prior that I couldn't imagine how all of my ideas would pull together--couldn't envision it... her response was "leave it to her--that was EA's job, that's why I hired them...so I could remove that concern off my plate" Once again...dead-on.... From the lanterns, to the Eiffel tower feather centerpieces, to the gorgeous linens to the spectacular feather bouquets/boutonnieres/corsages....I am forever grateful.... Many people tell you to prepare for something not to go right, or for something not to be perfect on your wedding day. However, I can honestly say, hiring EA will prove everyone wrong...your day will be amazing--far beyond what you ever dreamt possible--they will meet AND exceed your expectations! Thanks Shavonna and Jamie--you two made my fairytale wedding into a reality! Sincerely and forever grateful, Best Wishes, Andrea and Anwar

Marylee was such an incredible wedding planner for our wedding in July 2012. She ensured that all of our wants and needs were met and were there for us every step of the way through the planning process via phone, email, and in person meetings. My husband and I are from out of the area which made communication key and she really did a phenomenal job keeping us in the loop. We also have a "modern family," meaning that both sets of our parents are divorced, and she made sure that our wedding went off without any issues whatsoever! There were also many vendors involved (cake, flowers, catering, etc.) and all of the behind the scenes action were completed to perfection! We would have never known if there was an issue! She handled everything! Thank you Marylee for being there for us through it all!

We hired Lisa to be our on-site wedding coordinator a month before the big day, and she jumped right in and helped everything run smoothly and efficiently. She worked with the on-site staff to decorate and prepare the venue and she did a great job. Would recommend Lisa to others.

When my now wife and I set out to plan our wedding, we were one of those couples who thought hiring a planner was unnecessary. We had roughly 6 months to pull it off. We fancy ourselves as reasonably intelligent and financially responsible people and we thought that was plenty of time. Fast forward 4 months. The stress began to mount and panic had set in. Our budget is dwindling. We broke down and decided to hire a day-of coordinator. Better late than never, but who do we call? Every one we spoke to was either way too expensive or not the right fit personality wise. Thanks to Thumbtack, we found Vanessa. We are incredibly happy we did and we couldn't have pulled off our awesome wedding without her. Here's just a few of the reasons why: 1) Attitude - She has the PERFECT demeanor for event planning. She kept us on track, but was never pushy. Very personable and easy to talk to. Every time we spoke to her we felt both at ease and motivated to check more off of our list. 2) Creativity - Simply put she has great ideas. Whether it was decor, logistics, floor planning, etc., she listened to our inputs (which weren't always in lockstep - welcome to married life) but put here own spin on things. Our wedding was weeks ago and we still are getting comments on how beautiful everything was. 3) Contacts - Vanessa made great recommendations for vendors, and didn't do so based on any kickbacks or financial gain to herself. In fact, we had one vendor who was somewhat flaky that we had already booked. She was able to line up a "just in case" vendor for us. 4) Organization - Nothing fell through the cracks and she thought of small details we didn't have the capacity to (because we were too busy being crazy pants). 5) Value - She is worth every penny and I would argue she is a bargain for the service she provides. This is especially in comparison to other planners out there. If you need help planning an event, not just a wedding, we highly suggest you reach out to Vanessa @ Little Black Book. You absolutely will not regret it.

I actually planned my wedding for the most part but close to the day of the wedding I realized I did not have a day of coordinator. I was referred by a friend to contact Sam at Mperfection. When I called her she was very professional and responsive she worked with me as far as pricing goes and was able to make my day better than expected. Even at the last minute she worked diligently to make sure my day was perfect! Thanks Sam for all of your hard work.

It has been a pleasure for us to work with Ari Jones. Her attention to every detail and follow up was most professional. We would recommend her without hesitation to anyone in need of an event planner. Her experience planning events and good judgment when hiring and dealing with vendors enabled us to make long distance decisions without having to be there in person. When the time arrived, we were able to enjoy our event without worrying about every detail because Ari had everything covered! Karen and Leonard Scheck

My husband and I are SUPER EXCITED with the outcome and very careful planning of our 10 year "Vow Renewal"!! Planned by Shauna Robinson of 'Brides-to- be Wedding's. Mrs. Robinson came to our home and explained 'exactly' what "Brides to-be'- does', she was also concerned with what our expectation's were for our wedding. We were so impressed with her kindness, her elegance, her organization skills and her ability to take the stress of planning off of my plate! She saved me so much stress!!! Our wedding was Simply Amazing thanks to Shauna! She stayed in contact with all of my vendors, the venue coordinator and anyone else involved in my wedding! I couldn't believe just how organized she was...she took my stress away and assured me that she was going to make sure my wedding was everything we thought it would be, and she delivered!!! I would highly recommend Brides- to- be to everyone" that wants a Awesome, patient Wedding Coordinator! I truly appreciate her work! Awesome, just AWESOME!!!!!!! L. Harvey

We hired Veronica for the day of wedding planner. Then we had an accident in the family and needed to upgrade. She was so nice to us, met us at the caterers as well as the venue to go over things. I was impressed by the way she contacted all the Vendors and worked with them. It Freed me to do the things I needed to. The day of she was so great making everything flow. Once the Wedding started I do not remember seeing her much. However I know she was checking every detail.

Lisa Horton did a great job at helping my wife and I plan our wedding. She was extremely resourceful, bringing in experts for design and decorations of our ceremony and reception venues that meant everything for my wife. She also worked closely with the photographer and caterer to ensure we were meeting our very shoe string budget. With her help, we were able to get significant discounts, including a free venue. Our wedding turned out memorable and excellent, and she did all of this remotely from DC while my wife and I were in Denver, CO. She is reliable, detail oriented, and a stickler for scheduling. 5 stars

    Diana helped coordinate all my wedding functions this past fall and did a fabulous job! It was an Indian wedding with several functions & a lot of guests and Diana made sure everything went as planned. She was always there a head of time to make sure everything was ready to go. On the wedding day & reception we had over 350 people and I did not have to worry about a thing because Diana made sure everything was on time & coordinated!

      “Alyssa was my awesome day-of wedding coordinator for my June 2017 wedding in Fredericksburg. In addition to being there for the day of the wedding, she also came to the rehearsal the night before. She even stood in for one of my bridesmaids who was late to the rehearsal, which helped a lot! Alyssa made the next day go by without a hitch. She was the point of contact for all the vendors, making sure they were where they needed to be per my instructions. She carried out each task with grace and kept everyone calm. When it came time to introduce the wedding party at the reception she jumped to the rescue. I had forgotten to tell the band to introduce my parents and in-laws. She sprinted to the band with their names and nobody was the wiser. Alyssa Glorioso is the perfect wedding coordinator to have by your side. She will make sure your big day is glorious!”

      Arielle. Was. Amazing. She was recommended to me by a friend and I’m so grateful for that referral. I kind of thought I could pull off our surprise wedding by myself before I met her, but boy was I wrong. Arielle made everything go perfectly and thought of so many questions I never would have thought to ask. She was there when I had vendor issues, she helped me plan my timeline perfectly, and she made the day run so smoothly. I’m sure she did so much that I don’t even know about. The day of our wedding I had so much fun and not a worry in the world, which I think is the best testament to her work. My mom also had so many good things to say about Arielle, and she didn’t know about her until the day of the wedding! Arielle is so professional and really has it all together - she is perfectly suited to this line of work. If you’re on the fence about hiring a coordinator or planner, call Arielle for a chat - you’ll be glad you did. Thank you Arielle!!

      Simply chic was simply AMAZING. Tisha was very professional and very punctual. But her greatest quality was that she was very personable and understanding. We had no idea of how we wanted our wedding and she helped us put everything together and I couldn't have asked for more. A definite hire. Thank you so much Tisha . We look forward to working with you in the future with other events and we wish you well in your future with your business.

      I am giving 2 thumbs up to Exclusive Event Planning. They are very professional and resourceful. They know their job. I've connected them for my son's first communion, we worked together and came up with one of the best venue I have ever seen, from flowers arrangement to the brightness of the room, everything was stunny. Yes, I highly recommend them.

      I'm not sure I can write a review that gives Amy justice. She helped me from start to finish and truly made my dream wedding come true. My wedding was completely "DIY". Amy coordinated with all of the vendors and made sure the day was as seamless as possible. She assisted the florist (Vintage Floral Designs - highly recommend) with all of the decorations. She helped my vision come to life. All of my guests were in awe of how beautiful/amazing our reception was. In addition, Amy helped clean up everything after the wedding - this was a huge help. I had the best day of my life and it definitely would not have been possible without Amy. Thank you!!!

      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.
