Jennifer is fantastic ! You can tell she loves what she does. She is eloquent, professional, approachable and so easy to be with. Her sermon was talked about after the service because she took the time to get to know us and hit all of the key points of our wedding, love and blended family. She went with the flow considering we had a wedding in a home with large families. I would hire Jennifer again.

Would recommend the Spinn Doctors to those looking for a wedding DJ. Robby was the DJ for my wedding and did a great job meeting with us and fulfilling our music taste. Also did a great job as the master of ceremonies because we was attentive and into our wedding. Thanks again Robby, we appreciate your work.

If you are looking for the best DJ who really knows how to put on a good event this is the company. Josh was the DJ at our wedding and he really put on a good show. I still hear people talking about that wedding dance. Josh does great work and is very professional. If you hire them I personally guarantee a good time will be had by all!!

Heather assisted me with month of and day of coordination for my wedding in Summer 2016. I was so happy with the decision to hire her as she made the final month of my wedding planning process less hectic and made the wedding day itself much less stressful. Heather handled 90% of the vendor questions and issues that popped up throughout the day without even consulting me, which gave me, my husband, and our families the opportunity to enjoy the day with our guests. Worth every penny and then some!

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!

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.
