My Elegant Occasion did my wedding centerpieces/ table décor which came out very nicely for my Great Gatsby styled wedding. All items were provided as discussed and set up in time for the reception. Arrival time was late which caused a bit of stress on the wedding day but the finished product came out great and I couldn't have thought of a better way to have my reception decorated.

We are currently planning a wedding, and Alpha Pitt Smoker has been amazing to work with. We had the taste testing, at our home and the food was AMAZING! 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 !!

Joanne did my wedding makeup for me and my bridesmaids. Everyone loved their makeup and we got tons of compliments. My husband especially loved the way my makeup looked. It also lasted through the night. Joanne listened to what we wanted and delivered!

ACE coordinated the planning, organization, and design of my wedding and I couldn't be more pleased. ACE took my vision and made it a reality with a level of detail and creativity that I would never have been able to achieve on my own. Handing over my event to ACE was the best decision I made for my wedding.

This team is really awesome, the work they have done shows their talent and you have to give them a chance to see the result yourselves. Their dedication towards getting this party organized as planned made me gobsmacked. We did have many inputs exchanged among us and they suggested me many things too, all turned out really well and the guests were astonished seeing the arrangements and the most important things is they did all this within my budget even though it was a challenging task for them. Mounica is very good at planning things and multi-talented and their team Bindu and Sankalpa have great talents and they did some customized canvas paintings for all the guests at a very nominal price. You will only beleive me after you talk to them and see what other wonders they can make for your party All the best PLANTASTICTALES and great job guys KUDOS

Latoya was a great assistance leading up to and the day off the wedding. She was always available for questions, issues, or just to provide support amongst all the stress of being a bride-to-be. Latoya attended every meeting with us yet gave my husband and I our space to be able to enjoy the moments. She kept me on budget (which can be a tough thing) and was a great sounding board for ideas. The day of my wedding, she was there first thing in the morning to check in on how I was doing and took care of a lot of little things that needed to be completed. She kept me informed on how things were going at the reception location and the church but also kept some things quiet so that it would be a surprise. Latoya kept my wedding party on time and on target, and the transition from the church to the reception was seamless. Latoya was completely on point for all things, all day. She made sure the photographers were capturing the right moments, the other vendors were on time and setup correctly, and even watched over myself and my husband by making sure we had food and drink. She stayed late to ensure the location was spotless and that all of decorations and other personal items were accounted for and secure. She even picked up my husband's tux the next day and ensured it arrived safely and on time back to the store. Her attention to detail and overall dedication to making that day special to me made her an awesome choice as a wedding coordinator. I felt valued as a bride and a person and can't image not having here there. Latoya's passion for her work shows in every interaction, every detail, and I am happy to have worked with her.

I have recommended Enchanting Elegance to everyone who mentions doing any event from small to large. Tewanna expertise is like no other. She responds promptly, is patient and she is a one stop shop from invitations, programs, event planning, baking, cooking. You name it she does it. If she doesn't do it she knows who does! I've included pictures of the most recent event Enchanting Elegance did for me. This event was an absolute HIT. My phone has not stopped ringing and buzzing since the party ended with people marveling over everything that Tewanna created. If you would like to speak with me directly for further reference feel free to contact me. You will not be disappointed as a matter of fact you won't have to ask her for business cards to give away because your guests would have beat you to it 😁

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.
