I hired Eternal Knot after the person I originally had hired couldn't do it due to a trip to Korea. My wedding was small and simple at a state park on the WA coast. The ceremony was well written with a very nice appropriate quote, she sent it to me to review as promised several days prior. She was on time the day of and was happy to do what ever I wanted for the ceremony. Overall, I was happy with everything.

Let's see here... Shanna was the most AMAZING person I could ever ever ever ask for to be with me during the whole crazy process of wedding planning. From being there for me at 1am when I had mini anxiety attacks about the wedding to hand making the most perfect decorations. She can do ANYTHING. She's not a wedding planner/coordinator/decorator. She's superwoman! If I could give her a 10000000000000 star review, I would still ask if I could give a higher one.

I really can’t say enough great things about Amanda Sackett and Ardent Engagements. Long story, short: Hire This Woman! She is the most professional, dedicated and organized person I have come across in a long time. Everything she did made planning our wedding easier and more enjoyable. She went above and beyond making inexpensive programs, timelines, ordered and picked up rentals, arranged flowers, and worked like a mule the day of our wedding to make sure everything went smoothly and wonderfully, even on my limited budget. She has an amazing work-ethic (probably from her time in the military) and has expertise with contracts (her other job). She was always available, and even though she lives in another town, I always felt she was there when I needed her. She is always positive, never disagreed with any of my ideas, always made me feel relaxed and less anxious, all the while keeping me on schedule without making me feel rushed. My fiancé and friends were all impressed with her professionalism and commitment. I cannot recommend her enough! She is AMAZING!

Well what can we say about Rachel? She is amazing and to put up with my husband she also is patient and kind. She kept everything and everyone on a schedule we agreed upon. She took our ideas for decorating and made them beautiful well put together and it was a event our friends are still talking about. Rachael is the best coordinator around and u will not be disappointed with anything. Rachael is willing to go above and beyond to make your day special . She makes herself available for any and all questions. We rate her a 10 and a must have for your event.

We really enjoyed our time at Bear Trap Getaways. As wedding photographers and videographers we thought it would be a great place to have a wedding. We loved the atmosphere, the cleanliness, and the quaintness of this beautiful place. The hospitality of the owners was wonderful. The overall experience was more than we imagined it would be! We recommend this location for your wedding, event, or just a quiet vacation.

Every bride and groom should expect to experience their own personalized, perfect wedding. I work together with my brides and/or grooms to create a ceremony that matches their desires, exactly! I have a gentle sense of humor that sets the stage for anything that might happen; good or less-than-good. Couples relax and enjoy their special day because they realize that they are in good hands. Many couples have written thank you notes that talk about the ambiance and the warm, comfortable ceremony under my direction. This is something I thoroughly enjoy doing, and it shows! Just think, we get to take a peek into one of the most beautiful moments in a couple's courtship and marriage, as we go through the vows and promises of love and devotion. I consider myself the most blessed in the room to participate in such special moments. Thank you to all who have allowed me this privilege.

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.
