We held an onsite corporate event where we offered appetizers to our guests. Chef James met with us prior to the event and ask very specific questions about our guests. He then devised a menu that fit both our budget and our guests' expectations. The food and presentation were wonderful. We would hire Dinners with Class again.

Amy was great at creating exactly what I wanted for my wedding flowers! My bouquet and my maid of honor's bouquet were absolutely beautiful and the men's boutonnieres were very handsome - she thought outside the box with the copper leaves and fiddleheads. I wanted untraditional/contemporary flowers, and Amy provided exactly that. Plus she stayed to help set up guest tables with the extra flowers she had. Amy you're AMAZING and I would highly recommend Green Ivy Greetings and Floral for your next event!!!!!

We had a great experience working with Donna. She was extremely responsiveness during the entire process, from planning to day-of. Donna also understood our specific needs and was happy to adapt the menu and services for us. The food was excellent. The most compliments from the diners praised the beef tenderloin tips. The green beans almandine were nice and crisp (not all overcooked and limp). The Bistro chicken had a very good flavor, although some pieces were just a bit dry. But everyone did enjoy all the food, and had nothing but compliments for the caterer. The staff was easy to work with, professional, and friendly. We were happy with how it all came together, and would recommend Frankies.

I chose to work with Party People 414 because the owner appeared to have good, new and fresh ideas. She displayed a level of professionalism that I had not encountered after meeting with several other local planners. The results were amazing! She took my twinkle little star baby shower vision and brought it to life. I most enjoyed her promptness, attention to small details (star shaped cheese appetizers) and the fact that she understood my “grown and sexy” vibe, which others deemed as impossible/crazy. I found the experience to be pleasant and a lot of fun and would recommend Party People 414 to anyone who is in need of any event planning needs. Especially if you are easily overwhelmed and stressing about the ins and outs of event planning as I was. If I could rate my experience, I’d say 5 out of 5 stars, two thumbs up and whatever other scales there are. I will definitely utilize her again.

Abnirys led the planning and execution for our wedding around the 40 children that attended. She planned all the activities, games, vendors like face painters, sketch artists and make a special gift box for each attendee based on age and gender. Abnirys also did all of the shopping,set up, management of the event and kids during and then clean up after. She also work with the venue and catering management as needed to ensure everything went smoothly. Abnirys also stepped up and helped out when we got stressed and needed extra help the day of the event beyond just the kids activities. We highly recommend Keep Calm Event Planning and are very happy to provide a reference. Mark & Wei Phillips

Heather was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process! She was our day-of-coordinator and my family and I were blown away by her professionalism, responsiveness, and attention to detail. She puts her clients’ interests first and helped keep our stress level low the month before our wedding. Don’t hesitate to use her services! Thank you Heather for all of your hard work! It was a pleasure working with you!

Robert & his Team at FINAO Wedding Design & Event professionals made us feel like we were more than a client, but as best friends. They really listened to our wants and needs for both the wedding ceremony and reception. The theatrical entertainment they pulled off at the reception is still a magical wonder, but either way our guests of 325 were in awe! I am always telling my coworkers and friends to hire FINAO for any event! They have connections that you can't look up online or in the yellow pages. They have partnered with the most amazing DJ who makes his own art. My now husband and I could not agree on a song for our first dance so FINAO's DJ seamlessly mixed the two together without skipping a note/beat. We decided to order an Ice Sculpture for our reception and WOW! With all that said Robert kept inside our budget and made sure we were involved throughout the entire planning. INCREDIBLE!

Using this service was a Godsend!!! There's enough stress alone getting married, These Je T'aime made it very easy for us. Their attention to what we wanted was incredible, Having periodical sit down meetings ensured accuracy in the planned details, And avoided any last minute problems. For those on a budget, This is the way to go!! There was simply no worry, They went above and beyond for our special day. Whether it was set-up at the Church, Or at the reception It was handled perfectly, Without having to check on various details, When they say Don't Worry, It's done, They mean it!! Besides the decoration aspect, These two Lady's showed compassion and understanding with simple conversation to help alleviate the stress and got us thru the Big event!! That says a lot. Je T'aime delivered exactly what was requested, And I would Highly recommend those planning a Wedding or other Party to allow Je T'aime to do the work for you. They Rock!!!

Pure stems provided the flowers for my daughter's wedding. The event was outdoors and casual. Christine gathered vintage vases and pots and created arrangements that were both understated and gorgeous. She has an eye for the unique and makes it all look easy and unfussy. Everyone commented on how beautiful the arrangements were.

I was nervous about hiring Rustic Chic because they didn't have as much experience as other places. But I don't regret my choice. They went above and beyond and I was treated like a close friend instead of just another client. If you need help with a sweet, romantic wedding...Rustic Chic is the company to hire.

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.
