You’re tackling this wedding as a team of two (you and your partner), but it’s more like a squad of three...or more. That is, if you’re one of the 28 percent of couples who hire a professional wedding planner (slash designer, coordinator, therapist, friend) to help with everything from balancing budgets to setting tablescapes and synchronize the sparkler send-off for the grand finale. After all, this is probably the largest and most expensive party you’ve ever thrown, and it’s helpful to have someone by your side who’s done it before.

With that in mind, we created a master list of the most talented full-service wedding planners and designers from coast to coast. These are the people we follow on social media and feature again and again in Brides. Here, they're grouped by region, but remember: You don’t have to be in the same area to hire one or to feel inspired by their Instagram feeds. Keep scrolling for the best wedding planners in America. (Fair warning: All of their pics are really, really pretty!)
