Paul and Stephanie were a pleasure to work with. Planning our wedding was difficult (we live in Montana), but Stephanie was a huge help throughout the planning process as well as during our wedding. The food itself was wonderful, and the cake far exceeded my expectations. There's nothing else we could have asked for for our wedding. Thank you to the whole team!

Nola and her staff did such a fantastic job catering our wedding. From helping us plan to menu, providing a delicious tasting, answering questions about logistics and dietary restrictions, and providing stellar food and customer service to the day of the wedding, Nola and her team went above and beyond to make our day special. Our main entrée was fig balsamic glazed wild BBQ salmon with mango kiwi salsa. I wish I could make something this delicious myself, because it was amazing. Our salad consisted of organic mixed greens with julienned apple, shaved fennel, herbed crouton, and a really light but creamy bleu cheese dressing. They even made a separate salad with a different dressing for our dairy-free guests. The guest (and groom’s) favorite was our side: Beecher’s mac and cheese. So good! It was very stormy the day of our wedding, and a lot of things went wrong for us. Nola and her team went beyond the call of duty and helped out where they shouldn’t have needed to. They kept an incredibly positive attitude the entire time, conversed with guests, and helped reassure an incredibly stressed-out bride. The only complaint I heard from any guests was the portion-control at the buffet, but with a buffet we personally feel that was probably necessary. I had been concerned that people would take more than their fair share and leave guests at the end of the line with no food, and I’m sure that was the whole reason for starting out with smaller portions. I also heard that guests were invited to come back for seconds once everybody had been served, so I’m sure everyone got enough food. Overall, we were more than satisfied with Nola, her team, and the food. The food was everything we had hoped for, and the service was outstanding. We recommend them to anybody planning a wedding or other event.

Britta was beyond wonderful! We had a really hard venue to work with, with non responsive staff, making it VERY hard to plan. Britta went above and beyond with meeting us and helping us get everything worked out. She was always in touch and quick to respond to any emails or calls. The day of was even better! She made sure every vendor was doing what they were supposed to, she managed the entire day, and kept us both fully informed of anything important happening that we needed to know about. I've referred her to a friend, and I would refer her to a thousand more! Hiring a wedding planner was never part of my plan, but when I ran into issues and wanted help, she was there and jumped right in. I'm so glad my plans changed and I got to met and hire her! Best wedding decision we made!

We worked with Shelby for almost a whole year to plan our wedding. We were out of state for most of the time, but she was great with using Skype and keeping a timeline of tasks. We would have regular meetings to go over ideas or plans, but she was always available and answered in a timely manner if we had a question outside of our meetings. The most important aspect is that she really listened to what we wanted and the day turned out better than I could have imagined! Shelby made the whole process stress free and we didn't have to worry about anything the day of. I would highly recommend her for any party/wedding planning or decorating/designing needs.

Michelle pulled out all the stops to completely blow us away in creating a wedding and reception atmosphere that was better than we imagined it could be. Meeting with her always helped to calm nerves and gain direction, not to mention how she made herself accessible and was always quick to respond. Her expert knowledge helped us explore the possibilities and her depth of experience was excellent in helping us narrow the overwhelming choices into a manageable feat. Not only did she listen and gain a sense of our exact vision all while working to make sure our wishes were being met, she was comfortable making decisions for us when asked. Michelle is magical because she took an unconventional idea for a wedding and was flexible, not to mention dedicated enough to turn it into what everyone tells us was the best wedding they had been to. She championed our ideas and wishes over our concerned family members and provided intense, extremely detailed beauty in EVERY SINGLE project she took on. Our wedding day was perfect, detailed, beautiful, and easy thanks to her tireless effort to make a happy bride and groom.

Fitsum has helped me tremendously with my wedding planning. Our wedding is not until May, but I felt the need to give her awesome reviews because she is just great at what she does and I wouldn't know what we would do without her. My fiancé and I have never planned a wedding before, so we have no idea what we needed to do. We thought that since we are having a destination wedding then it will be easier to plan everything, but we were wrong. There was so much stuff we didn't know and Fitsum has helped us tremendously even with a short time frame of 6 months. She helped us plan our at home reception and we can just focus in our destination wedding. She is easy to contact and easy to work with. She always respond to my emails and questions within a day, not only that she gave us great recommendations and tips. She also helped us pick out and reach out to our venues. She definitely has help relieve a lot of stress prior to our wedding and I couldn't have ask for a better wedding planner. We highly recommend her to anyone that we know!

Melody was so helpful in the planning of our florals and in the day of set up of our garland for our wedding! Everything looked wonderful and people keep telling us how much they loved our bouquets! My favorite part was the tiny pine cones she included in the groomsmen corsages!

Jannice is gifted! She literally made my vision a reality. And where I had no vision she helped me create one. Our wedding was far more beautiful than I could even imagine. In addition to flowers, beautifully decorated tables, an outside seating arrangement that was beautifully unique with flowers down the aisle, Jannice brought her gift of prophetic dance to our wedding. She awed every one of us with the Presence of God! Whatever you are looking for in your wedding Joyfully Yours is for you! Let Jannice help you bring out the visions and dreams inside of you! Thank you Jannice. Five years later my wedding day is still the best day of my life!

Cassie is the queen of wedding coordinating. Because of Cassie and her expertise, the process of planning our daughter's wedding was stress free from beginning to end. Cassie provided service far beyond what we expected from a "day of" coordinator. She may be the most organized person on earth. We received timely e-mails providing monthly and weekly timelines, ideas, options. Cassie thought of everything! Some days we exchanged ten e-mails/texts. Once we had our vendor contracts, we passed them on to Cassie for managing. I never had to contact a vendor again. She made three venue visits with us and conducted the ceremony rehearsal. She coordinated absolutely every detail of the wedding day. Friends and family members remarked at how relaxed we seemed during the months of wedding planning -- again, thanks to Cassie. Her professional, no-nonsense approach kept us on track and prepared us to host the biggest party of our lives. On the wedding day Cassie brought two helpers, and they all spent at least eight hours working the event. When I arrived at the venue that morning, I asked Cassie what I can do to help. She responded with something like, "Nothing. Enjoy the day." :-) I truly don't know how families pull off something as important as a wedding without the services of a skilled coordinator. Of all the decisions to be made in the wedding planning process, our absolutely best decision was hiring Cassie!

Outstanding and truly magical services! Bianca really hit it out of the park for our wedding and we couldn't be happier with our choice. I am not at all creative, but I told her about us and some things we liked and she turned those into something amazing that represented us that I never could have imagined! She also kept the day flowing perfectly and truly enabled us to enjoy our big day.

Piece of Cake helped plan and coordinate my brother's wedding, and I don't think we could have done it without her! There were so many details that easily could have been missed, but her attention to detail and thorough planning made everything go off without a hitch. The decor was beautiful and the photo booth was so much fun. Everyone had an amazing time. Thank you so much for your involvement, from start to finish, we knew we were in good hands!

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.
