"Perfectly Events coordinated my wedding day and WOW!!! They were the most professional, detail oriented, down-to-earth, hard-working individuals I have ever met. I am teacher so I thoroughly enjoyed planning my own wedding but we decided to hire a day-of coordinator so that we didn't have to worry about anything on our special day. Upon landing on Perfectly Event's Instagram page, I reached out and booked immediately. Jessell (owner) was so responsive from the first time we e-mailed. I would email her with questions about vendors (she would listen to my budget and provide a list of vendors-- that were ALL reliable and absolutely professional). I met up with Jessell at our wedding venue a few weeks prior to our wedding date. When I first met her, I felt like she's been a friend of mine for years. She was so easy going and sweet! Leading up to the wedding, she reached out to all of our vendors and confirmed the time-line. (Whew! Such a huge relief!). She maintained communication with all of our vendors and was readily available whenever I had a moment of "panic" or had a million and one questions. Now let's talk about rehearsal and our wedding day. Jessell and her team went above and beyond to ensure the day went as smooth as possible. I love that she delegated the tasks and ran the entire ceremony/reception with the biggest smile on her face. We LOVED that her and her team would go out of their way to make our vision come true. Perfectly events exceeded our expectations and made our wedding day "PERFECT"! Highly recommend Jessell and her team for your wedding planning/coordinator needs!"

"We were looking for a Day-Of Coordinator for our wedding and found OOBE Events on Thumbtack. From the very first email, Natalie was extremely responsive and committed to giving us the best service possible. As a coordinator, she was the perfect combination of being experienced, attentive, rigorous, and just being a real personable individual. To sum everything up, Natalie is perfect for making sure all of your plans and ideas are fully realized. We had a very DIY wedding, so we had already done a lot of planning before we started looking for a coordinator. Natalie understood this and helped us manage what we could do and what was realistic for our budget. She had a lot of previous experience that she brought to the table, so I was able to put my complete faith in her suggestions. I feel like if we did not find Natalie, there would have been a lot of stuff that we would not have been able to do for our Big Day. Leading up to the wedding, she met us for a walkthrough of the venue, provided us with consultations, and put together a floorplan. About two weeks before, she helped us put together our timeline and took over handling all correspondence with the vendors. She was on top of everything! Not once did she have to give us call about some mishap with a vendor. She really made it so that we did not have to worry about anything in those last days before the wedding. And finally, during the actual reception, everything went smoothly. She was great and keeping us on schedule without being overbearing. I could not have asked for anything more."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a wedding event coordinator do?

Pulling off a large, complex wedding or an elegant, small affair requires juggling myriad details, including the officiant, food, drink, wedding cake, entertainment, transportation, rehearsal dinner, photography, equipment rentals, venue reservations and more. A wedding event coordinator can help you keep track of these details, overseeing the planning process and managing everything on the day of your wedding. Each wedding coordinator (and wedding) is different, but in general you can expect an event coordinator to:

  • Help you devise a realistic wedding budget and hold your vendors to it.
  • Map out a master plan that includes all of the details including ceremony music, favors, the guest book and more.
  • Suggest ceremony and reception locations that fit your wedding size, budget and vision.   
  • Suggest florists, photographers, bands, caterers and other vendors that fit your budget.
  • Negotiate vendor contracts for the best deals.
  • Create a timeline for the day of the wedding that includes each vendor and member of your wedding party.
  • Mail invitations and track RSVPs.
  • Answer questions about wedding etiquette and current wedding trends.
  • Manage the wedding day from supervising vendors and setup to handling last-minute emergencies.

Do I need a wedding day coordinator?

Even if you’ve handled every detail of planning your wedding, you might appreciate having a day-of wedding coordinator in your corner. Usually, the coordinator meets with you a few weeks before your wedding to put together a detailed timeline of everything that needs to happen on your wedding day. Then, on the big day, the coordinator makes sure everything goes according to plan — and handles any emergencies that pop up, such as party crashers, missing tuxedos, late vendors, disappearing bridal party members and more. Most wedding coordinators also handle:

  • Distributing the wedding day timeline to all of your vendors.
  • Coordinating all of your vendors, including the photographer, florist and baker.
  • Conducting the wedding rehearsal.
  • Helping the bride and her wedding party get dressed and take photos.   
  • Checking floor plans, lighting levels, cake placement, menus, favors and more.
  • Collecting the wedding gifts and keeping personal items safe and accounted for.

Even if you don’t think you need a wedding coordinator, check with your venue. Some require that couples hire a day-of wedding coordinator for the day of the event. 

What should you ask a wedding coordinator?

When you hire a wedding coordinator, you want to make sure he or she gets you and can execute perfectly your vision of your dream wedding. To find the very best fit, it’s important to ask these five questions:

  • Are you available on my wedding date? If the coordinator isn’t available on your big day, there’s no reason to continue the interview — unless you’re willing to shift your date to accommodate their schedule.
  • What’s average cost of most of your weddings? If the coordinator’s usual wedding is outside your range, they might not be the right coordinator for you. Ask whether the coordinator requires a minimum wedding budget. In general, the wedding coordinator’s fee should be about 15 percent of your budget.
  • What is your speciality? Some coordinators specialize in day-of coordination, some create the overall vision, and others act as a producer. Make sure your wedding coordinator provides the type of services that will most help you create the event you have in mind, such as selecting vendors and handling their contracts, or managing the guest list and invitations.
  • What are your ideas for fulfilling our wedding vision? After you describe your dream wedding — rustic or sophisticated, traditional or funky — the wedding coordinator should be able to suggest appropriate venues, menus, decorations, etc..

Do you have a portfolio? Ask to see photos of their favorite weddings, especially if they’ve managed any that are similar to what you have in mind. This will help you see if you like their style and if their ideas seem fresh and creative.

How much do day-of wedding coordinators cost?

A day-of wedding coordinator makes sure that every detail of your wedding day goes off without a hitch, and deals quickly and quietly with any last-minute emergencies. For many brides, the day-of wedding coordinator is their best investment! The average national cost for a wedding coordinator is $800 to $1,000. Although full-service wedding coordinators often charge a percentage of the total wedding budget, most day-of coordinators charge a flat fee plus an additional hourly fee if the day runs long. For example, a 15-hour day-of coordination costs an average of $600, plus an additional $45 per hour if the coordinator works more than the planned 15 hours. Another option is to hire a coordinator to manage the last-minute details leading up to the event; for example, 25 hours of month-of coordination costs an average of $1,200. Several factors affect the cost of day-of coordination, including the region, the planner’s experience, and the specifics of the wedding. If the ceremony and reception are in two different locations, expect to pay more than if they’re in the same place. Also, extra details, such as managing food trucks or setting up snacks in addition to the meal, will increase the cost.
