Everything was perfect for my wedding day!! The food was delicious! We got so many compliments on the food. Their team was very professional through the entire event. The only thing I would critique is the responsiveness. They didn't get back to me as soon as I would have liked after I called but that's about it. Other than that they were great and I'd definitely recommend them to others.

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!

I can't give a high enough review of Pamela'a Party Pantry! What a wonderful experience she gave us! She brought us dinner about 10 days prior to our event to sample some items on the menu, it was so good, some of the best, most fresh food I have ever had. The event we hosted was a bridal shower for our DIL to be. The women actually went back for seconds! And compliments for miles. We will find reasons to host events so we can have more of her wonderful food! DO NOT HESITATE TO HIRE HER!!!!!

We had Bikini Panini cater my wife's suprise birthday party. Laura and her husband did a fantastic job, and our friends and family couldn't believe we had a food truck on site. Laura provided appetizer trays inside, and guests went outside to order food. Her husband worked the "front of the house" and was friendly with our guests while Laura worked the "back of the house" and cooked all the food, etc. These two were the nicest folks, and not only did our guests LOVE the food, but they loved Laura and her husband. They were kind, personable, and friendly. We loved hearing about their vacations all over the world (some of the inspiration for their menu items) as well as the story behind the truck. Hard to believe they are new to the food truck biz - it felt like they'd been doing it a lifetime. I can't wait to see them again at Ardent, Lickinghole Creek, or another private event. We actually contemplated going to Ardent the next night just to eat their food again. These two were 6 stars on a scale of 5. Could not have been more happy with their service, food, and price.

Pleasant Planning was the first vendor I booked after I got engaged. Hiring Latoya was the best decision we made! She guided me through the whole wedding process. She helped me book all of the vendors for my wedding with ease. One thing that I greatly appreciated was how honest Latoya was. She was very straight forward with what would and would not work. She would tell me if there was a more inexpensive option for something that I wanted and made it work. All in all I got the wedding of my dreams and all of the details were perfect. She brought all of my ideas to life. I cannot say enough great things about Latoya and her company. If you hire her I promise you will not be let down and you will actually get to enjoy your special day instead of stressing over it. I plan on booking Pleasant Planning for future events for sure.

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.
