Wow. My husband and I planned our wedding from Germany and working with Paul and Stephanie made planning actually fun! They were very professional through the entire planning process and worked with us to create a menu that spoke to both of us as a couple. Our guests said that it was the best catering they've experienced and on top of that Paul and Stephanie as well as their staff proved to be incredibly kind to us and our guests, even preparing a plate with food for my husband and me (as we were busy socializing w our guests) and also for a friend of mine who was busy with her 4 month old child. Lastly, we had to rent tables, chairs, cutlery and it was so easy to set that up through Paul and Stephanie. Thank you so much for just an amazing and unforgettable time and making the planning of our wedding such a stress-free experience. We're so glad to have found you!

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 lifted a huge weight off our shoulders. We hired her for the planning process and day-of service and she was key in making our wedding one of the best moments of our lives. From the start Britta was helpful and accommodating. She offered to meet us around working hours and always willing to share her insight on any planning questions we had. The day-of coordination is where Britta really shines. I was blown away by her organization and attentiveness. Everything went so smoothly and I barely even knew she and her assistant were there (which means they did their work flawlessly). I would absolutely recommend Britta and her team for your wedding planning needs and would be happy to be a reference.

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.

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.

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!

My husband and I didn’t plan on having a big, exuberant wedding. We wanted something small and intimate, but also special. Bianca handled everything with grace and made the day perfect! With just a month or so notice she was able to pull everything together and truly wowed us. She is extremely empathetic to where I felt like she could read my mind and knew just what to say and recommend to where I didn’t have to be stressed on our big day. I couldn’t have asked for a better planner.

John did an excellent job setting up sound for our challenging wedding, which took place on a ship but also required speakers for people standing on the dock. All in all people on the ship and the dock could hear everything, including our vows, the quartet and officiant. And the environmental noise was a challenge too. Definitely would use him again.

We hired Snowrider Entertainment to DJ our wedding in Poulsbo. They did a great job! They came in and set up without any of our input or having to direct them. They provided a very stress free experience, and I can't think of a single thing that didn't go perfectly! Phil was very nice and professional. They did more than just play music. Phil helped us plan out the timing of each of the events of our wedding (dinner, dances, toasts, cake cutting, garder/bouquet toss, final dance), which was very helpful. When the day came and the events inevitably went a little off schedule, Phil was very flexible, and all the transitions and events went smoothly. I would highly recommend Phil and Snowrider Entertainment to anyone looking for a DJ and Master of Ceremonies for their wedding.

Such a pro! We Heart Weddings takes such incredible care of you throughout your wedding and wedding day process. We hired them as our DJ, great prices, and Laura really helped me when our playlist ended up with too many slow songs.. Giving her full reigns was such a huge success, had all our wedding guests burnin it down on the dance floor! From one bride to another, I highly recommend this company. Incredible memories 😊 One very happy customer, Jasmine Snyder

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.
