Monica was absolutely amazing as the day-of coordinator for our wedding! She was incredibly helpful and made our day as stress free as possible. The decor was perfect and everything was set up exactly like I envisioned. She was such a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

LV went over and beyond what we expected from her when we hired her as wedding coordinator (day of). She made everything stress free for us, smooth and as perfect as it could possibly be. We originally planned to do everything by ourselves but we realized that this is not possible. It is also not fair to task relatives or friends to help out with wedding preps as we want them to just have fun on our special occasion. The simple and only solution was to hire LV and she took care of everything. She took charge and even planned the wedding reception timeline from start to finish. From the smallest detail up to working and coordinating with all the vendors. She was just so pleasant with everybody and it felt like she was in charge of everybody like the dj, photographer, caterers etc. She managed and worked with everybody so well which made our wedding reception as perfect as it could possibly be. Hiring her is like hiring a team because she can get everybody to work together towards a common goal. Me and wife is so grateful and lucky to have hired LV as our wedding coordinator.

We are so glad to have had Jodi as our wedding officiant. She arrived on time and was so patient while we waited for some important wedding guests to arrive. She delivered such a beautiful ceremony. We had guests ask us if she was a friend of the family because she seemed so emotionally connected to the event. We know we made the right choice!

I hired Excellent Party Rental for my daughter's wedding in Carlsbad. Ramiro was excellent at answering my questions, drawing up an invoice (which I revised half a dozen times!), and being very flexible with those ongoing changes, right up to two days before the wedding. He arrived right on time and had everything we needed. Unfortunately, there was a problem with the table cloths--he had used a new cleaner for his linens and they had done a terrible job. Although the linens were labeled, on hangers and covered in plastic, when we took them out, there were stains and even food on many of them. This was the morning of the wedding! I called Ramiro, and he immediately drove 40 minutes with new linens. He provided exactly what we needed to have a great event--tables of all sizes, chairs, linens, wine glasses, pilsner glasses, coffee pots and large space heaters. His operation is not a fancy one, but he seems to have access to immeasurable resources, his prices are quite a bargain, and his customer service is tops. Ramiro also came to pick up right when planned. He was a pleasure to work with! I highly recommend Excellent Party Rental. I'm sure he has worked out cleaner situation by now. That was my only complaint, and since he remedied it right away, he deserves 5 stars.

Hannah from Red Letter Events provided day of coordination for our wedding of roughly 200 people. She did a wonderful job providing the perfect amount of interaction with my husband and I during the wedding and was professional and kind with our guests and vendors. It’s only with experience that wedding coordinators learn when brides need them and when issues need to be personally handled. Hannah nailed it. She stepped in to provide direction and assistance before I even knew I needed it and also handled all the issues that arose without ever bothering me. The day went off without a hitch thanks to Hannah’s help and experience – I even had guests coming up to me afterward saying we were waiting for even the smallest hiccup, but it never happened! Thank you, Hannah! Perfect day.

Annemarie was a God-send. I hired her to help coordinate my wedding and she helped me every step of the way. My mom was in the hospital for a majority of my engagement, so I was behind by the time I hired Annemarie and I was a little frazzled. She helped me get caught up, and think through details I didn't think of prior to hiring her. She was patient with me, because I wanted things done a little unconventionally. She was SO helpful the day of the wedding with everything - She made sure everything was done correctly, and if there were any snafus, I never knew about it and neither did my guests! Her assistant was also wonderful. I can't speak highly enough about her!

Sam was our DJ for our wedding in August 2017. We'd gone through dozens of potential DJs until we got a hold of Sam. Right from the start, Sam focused on getting to know our background, personalities, and style first, in order to really understand how he could make our event the best event possible. When it came to the music and the party, we were very comfortable handing the emcee duties to Sam. Every detail was mapped out on paper well beforehand, including all the intro/outro, and first dance songs. On the wedding day, Sam arrived impeccably dressed, with plenty of time to set up. Our wedding went without a hitch, and Sam was a large part of that success keeping everyone hyped the whole night. With a firm grasp of our personalities and musical styles, he played a seamless mix of hits that had everyone on the dance floor. He even helped us throw light sticks into the crowd (see photo,) and jumped off the stage at one point to lead a dance. Nearly a year later, many people have told us that our wedding was the best they'd ever attended, and still rave about how much fun they had. They'll usually also have a memory of DJ Sam, that he looked like he was having just as much fun in the DJ booth as everyone else. If you're thinking about booking Sam for your event, DO IT! Thanks Sam!

J7 had a Circus event at a local Pub/Restaurant raising awareness and money to build wells for clean drinking water. Her passion was apparent with the enthusiasm she had as there were many participants, from Artists to Pole Dancers to Speakers, for the event. J7 was welcoming and busy tending to needs that occurred as the event went on making sure that guests and participants were well taken care of. It was the first time I met Miss J7 and in that experience she revealed herself as a capable event planner and manager, and after time, as an amazing overall individual.

Rinna was great. Although she is a day of wedding coordinator, she helped us throughout the planning as well. Our big day turned out to be more beautiful than we all expected and she brought some extra decorations to add to it. She did her best to make sure everything was kept on schedule and we were very pleased with how everything turned out.

I needed a Wedding Coordinator to decorate the reception venue on the day of the wedding since I wasn’t going to have time to do so, Valentina contacted me and from her initial email I knew she was perfect! Her email stood out from others due to her professionalism and well thought out questions, she came off as someone that knew what the job entailed and asked all the right questions. The wedding was 5 months away Valentina kept in touch and as the date draw closer scheduled a meeting to go over the details meeting her in person just solidified my decision. Throughout the months Valentina made sure to very politely keep in touch with me always offering to help in anything needed despite the fact that I had only hired her for the day of. In the few days before the wedding she contacted me to check on last details, 3 days before the wedding I had to completely change the lay-out and was in constant communication with her for the next 2 days. Valentina went above and beyond to make our day perfect, I really never did worry about the reception decoration because she was in charge she gave me such peace of mind it was really great to be able to trust someone so much and not have to worry. The day came and she did an absolutely great job, she got to the venue early, set up the tables, décor, managed the florist and arrangements, deliveries, picked up a cake, greeted our guests and announced our entrance. Valentina was absolutely amazing and wedding coordination is really her calling, she had great taste decorating the cake table, gift table, everything looked beautiful. She added a few flowers to the cake and sent me a picture for approval it was so classy and beautiful and something I hadn’t thought of. Valentina was a joy to work with, always professional, kind and willing to do a great job she was my best vendor and I’m so grateful for her she saved me a lot of stress and did a great job my guests were blown way and are still talking about how beautiful the reception was. I’m a Project Planner by profession and looked forward to planning my own wedding which was fun, but I would not hesitate to hire Valentina and just let her plan and execute the entire event, in fact had I known her earlier I probably would just have hired and let her design and manage it.

Glennie and her team was Everything I had hoped for and more! They were so helpful throughout the entire process, went above and beyond, and we’re so detail oriented and amazing. I really did not have to plan my wedding because they had it all planned for me. I just had a vision, I told him what I wanted, and they made it happen. I would highly recommend Glennie and her team To everyone I know. My wedding of 450 gas and having it on today’s was so fun and exciting. If I were to have it again in 10 years, I would definitely rebook with her.

I recently got married and I have to say that without LyKai, my wedding wouldn't have been so wonderful and stress free. She made every step of this process so easy and fun. What was especially difficult was planning a wedding from far away, but she always responded right away to answer any questions I had and give me advice. She set us up with a website that made planning even easier. The days before the wedding she was there to go over every detail and make sure everything was taken care of. She took care of everything on the wedding day and made she the whole wedding ran smoothly. Whenever we had a chance to meet we had such a good time discussing everything and anything. She is sweet, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. I would recommend to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator. She was the absolute best and so was our wedding thanks to her.

Tom was one of the main reasons my wedding was a great success. The venue didn't let us know the top area didn't have speakers so Tom took the initiative to go coordinate everything and make sure the agenda was followed. He also is well prepared and very professional. If you want someone who will be prepared for whatever comes up at your wedding Tom is the man. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a DJ/MC. If I ever need a DJ for another occasion I will definitely be giving Tom a call.

Vanessa was an absolute pleasure to work with! I hired her to help me coordinator everything leading up to our wedding day. Her attention to detail was phenomenal and served as a wonderful second pair of eyes in reading over all the contracts from vendors! I couldn't believe how many details and questions there was but she was there to answer and ask all of them. It was really great that once the wedding date was approaching she started answering emails from my vendors because she already had the answers which saved us a great time of time! She really knew her way about event planning and it was so comfortable for me to talk to her about changes or thoughts and she is very flexible with direction if you change your mind. Vanessa responds when she sees your email and will let you know if she saw your email but didn't have time to answer. I loved how well she communicated with me. She texts right away and she is very thorough with her email responses. She is adaptable in learning how to efficiently use technology to her advantage. I opted to use GoogleDrive to share documents back and forth. Until she met me, she didn't know how to use and now she is an expert! I cannot imagine not having this wedding without all of Vanessa's hard work! She deserves all the credit.

Krista did my wedding invitations and my wedding favor tags. I was blown away! Every aspect of planning my wedding was becoming more and more stressful, and the first fun thing I did for my wedding was to work with Krista on making a design for my invitations. I did not have a clear vision of what I wanted and Krista helped me to make decisions through small steps. It was overwhelming looking online at all sorts of different invitations, but Krista asked me simple questions that helped me to weed out what I didn’t want and discover what I did want. I ended up with an overall product that really gave guests a glimpse into what the wedding would be like. I had so many compliments on my invitations, and they were one of a kind. Krista was always quick to respond to me, met all of her deadlines, and never even batted an eye when I asked for MULTIPLE revisions. Her attention to detail is amazing, and there is nothing I would change about my final product. I had no idea that I could get custom invitations at a reasonable price. Only a few weeks before my wedding I asked if Krista could help me with my favor tags since I was running out of time to do them myself. Krista came up with an amazing design that matched our invitations and had them to me in record time. Working with Krista on the invitations and favor tags was probably the smoothest part of planning my wedding. With Babies on the brain I know I will be in touch soon to help with baby announcements and kid birthday parties. I am a customer for life. Thank you Krista!!!

        About

        Besides corporate events and community events, I specialize in weddings and offer the following three different packages: * Consulting - This is for the ambitious bride and family who plans to tackle the majority of planning but needs some help gathering the venue, design, etc. This is all based on your needs! Consultations are determined by the hour, and I prefer to do consolations in person but also offer Skype or phone consultations. * Day-Of Coordinator - This is for the bride who wants to do all of the preparation and planning but wants a skilled manager to make sure that every detail of her vision comes to life! I coordinate with the venue and all of the vendors and create an articulate timeline for everyone involved -- including bridesmaids and groomsmen. Of course, I will manage the dress rehearsal. * Full-Service Wedding Package -- This is an all-inclusive wedding creation package. I will guide you through the process of piecing together the very best flowers, venues, vendors, caterers, musicians/DJs, decor, linens, dresses, attire for bridesmaids and groomsmen, invitations, etc. Basically, it's from the save-the-dates to the "thank you" cards and everything in between. Of course, this includes consolations as well as day-of wedding coordination and all the support you need to have the most magical of weddings!

        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.

        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 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.

        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.

        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. 

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
