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.

Jason is always in touch, checking in, and very easy to work with. We will keep you posted after the wedding, but I am fully confident Alpha Pitt Smokers will do a beautiful job !!

    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!!!

    Maegen coordinated my wedding in 2012. She helped me find local bridal and cake shops, DJs and venues for our wedding. We started planning about a year in advance and she was there every step of the way. Maegen had great ideas for decor and made sure we did not forget any important details. By the day of our wedding Maegen had been in contact with all of vendors involved(cake lady, DJ, caterer, photographer, musician,etc.) and coordinated what time they should arrive to the venue to set up for the wedding. She was there bright and early the day of our wedding and made sure everyone arrived on time and set up as planned. When there was a delay in my arrival she made an announcement to the guests explaining the delay and convinced our caterer to open the bar which our guests greatly appreciated! She made sure we stayed on time all night even though we started an hour late and ensured the major events were done early so those who wanted to leave could. She ensured we had time to take all of the photos we wanted and they turned out amazing. At the end of the night she worked with my family to move all of our gifts out of the venue and made sure all of the guests were out of the building by the required time so we did not get charged extra! She made our wedding day stress free and enjoyable! We could not have asked for a better coordinator for our wedding!

    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.

    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.
