I wish I could give her a million stars. From her original quote to her sweet and thoughtful follow-up email the day after my wedding, I was never disappointed by the professionalism and service provided by Alisa and her colleague. She worked catering into our already tight budget, corresponded with me (your typical type A personality) about small details and ever changing menu ideas/headcount, and was prompt, professional, and wonderful! The food was OUTSTANDING. She created 4 different pasta dishes, two excellent salads, veggies, and wonderful garlic bread. She and her colleague rinsed off all of our rented tableware, put them back into their crates, and even cleaned up after guests long after dinner was done! I could not have been happier with the quality and quantity of the food prepared and received several wonderful comments from my guests about the choice of food and caterer. Alisa and her colleague mingled with our guests, made themselves available when needed, and were very self-sufficient, which is a great thing to have on the day of a wedding! They even prepared a small treat for breakfast the next day. All in all, I would hire them again in a heartbeat and would advise you all to do the same if her quote comes your way. "Passionate" about food and service is what Alisa stands for and I couldn't ask for better for my wedding.

Rebecca was our day of wedding coordinator for our backyard wedding in June 2018 and she did a truly fantastic job. There were definitely some logistical challenges we were worried about including getting our guests to the venue from an offsite parking lot and coordinating the set up of various things after the wedding started due to heat ( including our dessert bar and wedding favors). Rebecca handled all of this spectacularly and made us feel at ease the whole time. When we under-planned for the amount of ice we needed for the day and ran out, Rebecca drove 10 minutes to the store to get more for us. I honestly really didn’t appreciate how much I needed a wedding coordinator until the day of the wedding. It just couldn’t have gone as smoothly without her and I would have been way more stressed. Only con ( and it didn’t feel like enough to deduct stars ) was I felt like this business was really aggressive about getting a review. I have gotten at least 10 requests between them and thumbtack (compared to our other small business vendors who asked once) in the 2.5 weeks since the wedding. I understand how important reviews are and always intended to write a glowing review of this company. Have truthfully had other priorities since the wedding finished and Just didn’t particularly appreciate the number of requests. That being said would not hesistate to hire them again. Rebecca was truly a gem and we are so grateful for her hard work and dedication on our wedding day.

This review does not fully compare to the actual experience of having Mimi as our wedding planner. My husband and I fell in love with her! I was referred to her by a friend a month or so before my wedding. You can imagine the details that needed to be done before that time frame. Not only did she take on the challenge of helping us, but went out of her way so our day was perfect. I live in concord, and she drove out 1 1/2 away to come meet with us several times. She kept good track of the things that still needed to be done. Her organization was phenomenal! Constant communication and support were there more than 100% (even for my emotional days) Besides the planning, she took care of the table centerpieces herself! Which were beautifully made with natural flowers on all 15-18 tables including our head table. Our guests, including vendors we hired were so impressed with her work, and most importantly by my husband and I. She found the best deals possible and made everything perfect yet affordable for us. Not only would we consider going through her all over again, but know we will continue to use her for future events and highly recommend her. We know that we didn't just find a good event/wedding planner, but a great friend that we will keep in touch with. Thank you again Mimi for helping us with our unforgettable perfect day!

Veronica was amazing!!! I hired her as a day coordinator for my wedding. I don't think she had a moment of rest from the time she arrived until she left. She handled the crises of the day remarkably and checked in with me regularly throughout. Did I mention that she also made my wedding cake, which was beautiful. She was just wonderful throughout... I enjoyed working with her and would recommend her 1000x to anyone looking for a Day of Coordinator.

Weddings require quite the budget to get done and the first thing one should do is bring a project manager into the mix. That's where Christina can be involved and the sooner you bring her in, the less stress you'll feel and the smoother the entire process will be. She made our wedding planning and day of process go so smoothly that we were able to shed a lot of stress we had going into it. We should've hired her several months earlier but we had the DIY mentality. Something that's great for hobbies, not weddings. =)

Wow - what can I even begin to say about Joyeux Events. I'll preface this review that I was one of those brides that did not think a coordinator was important, I had already gotten a lot of things accomplished and we had plenty of friends and family to help right. WRONG! Under the suggestion of my mom, we hired Jessica and her husband Robert to be our wedding coordinators. It took about 2 minutes on the phone with her to realize I absolutely needed her on my big day and about another 3 minutes to see how much easier the last 5 months would have been on planning if I had her by my side helping. Jessica is creative and knows how to decorate, design and incorporate whatever theme you want into your event, for us, it was the most important event in our lives, our wedding. Jessica was helpful and volunteered to assist for things I did not even think to ask. She had connections to vendors that I did not know of, which at the last minute when things never go has planned she completely saved us on things. One of the best traits is she knows when to step in and help (like most brides, I was over involved and spread way too thin). Something else that is so important... is on the day of your wedding. You need someone that is not emotionally charged by the situation. Someone that can look at things for a logistical point of view, and personally I am glad I had Jessica in charge to handle the many personalities of my friends and family and help everyone get where they needed to go in an efficient order. Everyone might want to help clean up, but you need someone with a commanding presence to organize that (as well as a multitude of everything else going on)! Jessica was a complete dream to work with and I couldn't imagine my wedding day without her. Not only is she a complete professional and knows exactly what she is doing in her industry, Jessica is honest, hardworking and a wonderful person to be around. My friends and family loved working with her as well and were so appreciative of all the work that her and her husband did. I would use them again for any event we have and if you want your special event to be just as successful - I would urge you to use Joyeux Events!

I’m so happy that we hired wedding possibilities for our wedding flowers! They were so sweet, and flexible when I needed to add things to the order last minute. They didn’t charge for delivery, and came straight to my hotel on the day of. My bridal bouquet was spot on what I sent her a picture of, and the bridesmaids bouquets looked pretty! She even gave us an extra one Incase. Boutonnières and corsages looked amazing as well!

Gabriel and his team went above and beyond to make my welcome/rehearsal dinner on my wedding weekend the best! I reached out to him after reading other good reviews of this food truck and he called me back the same day and helped me find the perfect location! He talked to people who had their own venues also in order to help me. On the day of the event, they were set up and serving food on time, they provided music for the park and they were totally concerned with making me and my husband happy with everything. Without requiring extra compensation, he provided coolers for the booze we brought ourselves and he didn't require us to have bartenders or anything. However, if we wanted bartenders he would have helped us get them. Did I mention how amazing the food was?!? Everyone from our wedding is still raving about the pizzas and brisket that was served! It was so delicious!!!! Gabriel helped me out the whole way with this experience and I couldn't be more grateful! This food truck is a class act with top-of-the-line food. I'm the happiest customer, and I'm sure you would be too! Highly recommended!

Danny's floral arrangements are beautiful and thoughtful composites plucked out of fairy tale imagery. I was a bride who hired Danny for my wedding flowers. Originally, I just wanted fresh flowers, some roses, something simple and pretty. However, for the centerpieces, I requested a special set-up with Moroccan lanterns, rustic wood slabs, and flowers spilling out the lanterns flanked by oranges (a Chinese symbol for fortune). In addition, I noted that our wedding colors were pink, blue, cream and gold. Danny was extremely open, flexible, and considerate in listening to my and my husband's vision. In addition, there were a few last minute changes such as: number of reception tables, changing my bouquet to a cascade bouquet, and adding more corsages and boutonnieres to the order. Danny was always very patient and graciously said that he'll do everything he could to make my wedding a dream come true. On the day of my wedding, I walked into my bridal changing room and saw the most gorgeous bouquet I'd ever seen. Blush roses, blue orchis, delicate violet flowers, and eucalyptus coins tumbled majestically in a floral waterfall - wild and natural, yet together making a disciplined formation. Later, I walked down the aisle and saw my beloved standing in front of a gazebo that was swathed in white chiffon and vibrant florals, also Danny's work. An hour and a half later, when we entered the reception room, I was met with the magnificence of our sweetheart table. Being a practical person, I had just discussed with Danny that we'd have a simple sweetheart table with my bridal bouquet as a centerpiece. What met my eyes was a golden tablecloth filled with rosette swirls. Across it were crystal goblets, Moroccan lanterns juxtaposed with oranges and golden frames containing my husband's and my pictures and standing atop tomes and wooden slabs. In that moment, my simple self became suddenly enraptured by a desire for lovely things, and in my transformation, decided that I must preserve my bridal bouquet. Danny indeed works magic.

I contracted Yvette for day of coordination of my wedding. She provided constant contact throughout the process, was prompt in replying to consultation emails, coordinated the rehearsal well based on my wants for the processional and was extremely hands on for the day of. Yvette placed programs prior to my ceremony for my guests and set up all the items I needed for my guests before the reception, including placing table cards for the assigned seating. She coordinated with all my vendors on the day of so that my day was focused on enjoying my wedding versus dealing with any of the organization on the wedding day. She even provided the bridesmaids with an emergency kit to assist with any unexpected day of needs. Thank you so much for the exceptional customer service.

Kris was the officiant at our wedding as well as the ceremony and reception coordinator. She is the absolute most organized person I know and understands and respects deadlines. She met with me numerous times throughout the planning of our wedding, and after listening and taking notes about what I wanted, she took charge and completely organized the ceremony, was in charge of delegating tasks to people in a clear manor, all the decorations for the reception, place settings, room design, decorations at the ceremony cite all while making sure all our immediate family members and bridal party were taken care of. I never had to worry about decisions she would make, as I had complete trust in her ability to create what I had invisioned for my special day. On a side note, she also coordinated our engagement party, and it turned out to be a total blast for everyone! I would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding who needs a coordinator or officiant. I have absolutely no complaints. She is professional, understanding, caring, devoted and she really puts her heart into it, as if she was planning it for her own son or daughter.

Christina and her team at CRC Custom Events were amazing! We would 100% recommend her. We hired her for day-of coordination and venue decor. She did so much for us leading up to the wedding and making sure we were thinking through everything. She is easy to work with and we were able to trust her to use her own judgement with some of the decor arrangements. Seriously, our wedding looked so beautiful; above and beyond our expectations!

    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.
