Gold Rope Events and Kammi were outstanding in creating the perfect graduation celebration for my daughter! Kammi was very patient and accommodating throughout the entire planning process. I was planning a party in Virginia from Nashville,Tn therefore Kammi was my eyes and ears from a distance and looked high and low to find vegan deserts for my daughter and anything and everything I asked for, to include an affordable venue, DJ. and specialty caterer. PRICELESS!!!!She gained my respect and trust immediately and I could not have been more please with the end result. I highly recommend Gold Rope Event planner for all occasions if you are looking for a professional planner that is committed to excellence. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. RLG

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!

    Sandy was nothing short of amazing. I convinced my hubby that I wanted someone to help with the day of the wedding, and after he met Sandy, he was instantly convinced. Even with only coordinating the day if the event, I had access to her full-time. My wedding day was absolutely perfect, even my family and guests commented on how phenomenal she was. She is priceless!

      The Smithfield Station catered the annual For The Kids gala for our school and did an exceptional job providing great service and the food was delicious! I knew that Randy, Cliff and the rest of the catering staff had the meal portion of the evening under control and that they would help us in making sure this was a top-notch event!

      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.
