Crystal was my wedding planner and decorator for my wedding and she did an awesome job. She was earlier than I expected, kept all problems under rap and away from me, the decor was outstanding and she even pulled out her camera and started taking pictures and gave me a few as a thank you. My day wouldn't have gone as smooth as it did without Crystal and people still can't stop talking about how pretty everything was. I will definitely recommend her to anyone and will hire her again all of my events.

Soirees by Lauren was very professional and so easy to work with during the whole process. Ashley was available for any questions during the entire year leading up to my wedding, and the coordinator (Molly) that helped me at the rehearsal and my wedding day was fantastic throughout the entire time! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to hire a wedding planner/coordinator.

I had a wonderful experience with Curtis. I planned my wedding in Virginia from another state. He was great to work with. He was very efficient with contacting me before the wedding. I appreciated that he wanted to meet up before the event to meet us and to talk face to face. During the event, he was wonderful !!! He played everything to our requests and much more. Everyone at the wedding said how pleasant he was to talk to and that he did a great job with the music. I can't thank him enough for being a part of our day.

I hired Tara to do our wedding with her "month of planning" package. Tara did an absolutely amazing job with our wedding. From the beginning she went above and beyond any of my expectations. Hurricane Matthew hit our venue and it didn't have full electricity and we weren't even sure if she was going to be able to get out of her street because the road were blocked off. Tara had quick thinking and suggested we request the venue push our timeline back two hours so our guests would all be able to attend (and vendors!) When I walked into the ballroom and it was all setup with the vision I had, I nearly cried. In the time that I worked with Tara she made me feel like I really knew her and we are so happy she was a part of our wonderfulday. I would highly recommend that anyone that is planning a wedding use Tara because she reduced my stress level and I don't think I could've done it without her. If you are even considering a wedding planner, you should probably get one and I know without a doubt, that Tara will make sure that your event runs as smoothly as possible.

Wanda came to my rescue when my original wedding planner cancelled. She listened very carefully and succeeded to make everything fabulous. Even the most minor thing, she made sure to make it happen. The memories I have of my wedding will last a lifetime.

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.

    We hired Sandy for day of event coordination and it felt like she did so much to help coordinate with vendors and the venue. It made the mounting stress seem to just dissipate. My wife and I really wish we had found her sooner and made the call to have her coordinate the entire thing. My wife was away most the time with deployment and Sandy made communication easy despite most being through email and phone calls. She just magically solved problems with vendors and kept my wife and I in the loop the entire time. Her professionalism was top notch and I have been recommending her and bragging about her to everyone I know is getting married. CALL HER! It will be the greatest wedding planning decision you will make. Thank you Sandy!!!

      Extremely professional and friendly. She was our wedding photographer and until we did the posed traditional photos we never knew she was there. We hired her again to do family photos and the accompany me and my hunt club on a weekend hunting trip. Her quality of work far excedes her prices.

      They live up to their name!! For my 25th birthday I didn't think I needed an event planner, but when I decided to at least see how one could help, I ended up giving them a call. After our initial conversation, I knew that I would book them and I was not disappointed. They went above and beyond, got there as early as they could to setup, with beautiful decorations. Jamicia planned a very entertaining party with no dull moments. I would definitely book them again, and I highly recommend them!

      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.
