Ms. Crystal is a GOD SEND. I became overwhelmed close to the end of my wedding planning, just before the wedding date, and started to lose control. Crystal brought her team in and they took over and cleaned up every issue that I had and did more in a very short period of time. She was knowledgeable, efficient, orderly, and organized. Every loophole I had, THEY FILLED. Photography, decor, and planning - she's definitely an expert in her craft. If she can't do it then she knew multiple people who could. IF you want someone who knows what they are doing, CALL CRYSTAL!!! SHE WILL GET IT DONE.

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.

    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!!!

    I used Same Love Event Planning for my baby shower and everything was perfect. The decorations exceeded what I was expecting but was everything I wanted. Definitely plan on using them for my next event.

    Joseph catered my daughter's baby shower. He did an amazing job! The food was delicious, we especially loved the macaroni and cheese. All of the guests commented on how good everything tasted, many requested his business card. Joseph was great to work with, assisting with details I had not thought of, and he did above and beyond what I expected. I look forward to hiring Gifted Touch for my next event. Thank You Joseph for helping to make our event even more special.

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
