Kessea was everything that we had hoped for in a Officiant. She met with us first to discuss what wanted in our service and then she gave us material to take home. We have a blended family so we really wanted to include everyone. She met with a second time and we put together our service and she made it so easy. We looked very hard for a officiate, because we do not belong to a church. We are so glad that Kessea fell into our plans. She helped us keep things together and helped guide our wedding into a wonderful and unforgettable tine in our lives!

My wife and I had Dave DJ out wedding. He was very professional about how he handled the pre-wedding planning. He answered all out question and concerns about how the event would play out. Dave was very easy to work with, and met every music request we had.

About

I am currently certified to be a wedding officiant known as a ''justice of peace''. I will to do any wedding at our place or yours. We have witnesses, a building for rent for reception, arbor or you can bring your own witnesses, and you decide how long you want your ceremony to be, from five minutes to one hour. This is a very easy process and is fun along the way. You must be a resident of Wisconsin and have your marriage license in hand if you want to get married that day. I am willing to do short notice marriages, or you can book a date. Thank you, Linda

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.
