Donna and Marcos were great to work with for our wedding. Our guests were happy with the photobooth services, the pictures printed out quick. The music services were okay and could have room for improvement in terms of fading and transitioning between songs for event orders instead of having songs stop abruptly. Other than that, they knew what songs to play to keep the dance floor later at night going. Would definitely work with them again.

I really enjoyed working with Mike and his wife for my July 2017 wedding of 70 people. His wife helped along the way and was there during the wedding, so that was an added bonus! His other great reviews and great price was what initially attracted me - and working with him was even better. -He was extremely accommodating to all of our needs. -Easy to talk to and work through the timeline with -Had great sounding equipment and microphones -Was an all around super nice guy. -Made sure to check in with my wife and I during the wedding to ensure the music and sound was to our liking. -Just did his thing in the background and made the music sound great. I would absolutely recommend Mike and Mytaste to any event.

Martha and Arturo knocked our wedding out of the park. From the start, they were friendly and professional. Once we met them and tasted their delicious food, we knew we were in good hands. Even though I knew we had nothing to worry about, we still couldn't have anticipated just how exceptional the food and service was at our wedding. The guests loved everything and kept commenting about how many options there were and how great everything was. The service was on point the whole night. There was even a snafu with the rentals (it was on our part...the coffee cups never got delivered and we didn't realize it until the middle of the reception), and next thing I knew Martha appeared with some disposable cups from the store to save the day! They went above and beyond and anyone who works with them will be lucky to have such a caring team involved with their event. Thank you Martha and Arturo!

DJ'd our wedding and was absolutely perfect! His set up was small for our intimate venue, he was very professional, and played the right music at the right times. He read the crowd well, and adjusted as needed. We planned our wedding from SoCal and booked him over the phone, and we're not entirely sure how it was going to work out. Could not have been happier!

Chef Hernandez made my bosses 25th Wedding Anniversary really, truly something special! They had a "Tour Around the World in 4 bites" (4 course) meal, in which they were able to be hands on, and learn new cooking skills. They described the night as a "HOME RUN!" and "The best night ever!" Chef Hernandez will ABSOLUTELY be our #1 contact for future events and parties.

Nancy was a great help. She stayed in touch with me during a hard time with a family member being sick. She checked in with me which made me feel very comfortable and happy to work with her. My guests at the wedding LOVED the food, they could not believe an outdoor wedding would have such tasty amazing food. They especially loved the steak, they said they could cut into it with a fork =) Thanks again Nancy & the team!!!! you guys rock!

We had a great experience with 2TipsyChicks. Working on a very short time-frame and with a venue that wasn't exactly a short trip away - they delivered. They provided great service during the wedding, and the two signature drinks that they designed for us were a huge hit! My wife and I would highly recommend them for anyone who needs professional and fun bartenders for an event.

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.

So I have to be honest I didn't hire this gentleman as I found somebody a little bit closer and a friend of the family but I will say that he responded immediately was extremely professional and clearly knows how to run a business I didn't get back to him right away and I feel really bad but we are in such a time crunch with only a few days left in the wedding one of the DJs backed out on us and I asked him could you do it for us with only 4 days notice and he said absolutely talk about character thanks again and I'm sure you would have been amazing at our wedding I'm very sorry that we went with somebody else but like I said friend of the family so it was hard to say no to them as well if anybody's looking for somebody who respond immediately and seems to be very professional this would be your guy

Pascale provided excellent service for our wedding that took place on September 16th. She went above and beyond her duties to make sure our wedding video was great, we never imagine that the video would be so beautiful. When we received it in the mail it came in this beautiful keepsake box with our name and wedding date on the front. Before and during the wedding Pascale assured me she would do her best to make sure we was pleased with her work and we was beyond pleased. She was very professional and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an professional videography. Job Well Done!!! Thank You and I'm So Glad We Met!!!! Derral and Susie

We hired Clara to do our wedding. We were on a tight budget & it was in our backyard. Clara got all the yardwork done and organized everything. She maximized our budget by making all the centerpiece and bridal party floral. She worked hard to keep our budget and give us what we want. Overall job well done👏

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 videographer and what do they do?

A videographer professionally films weddings and other events and edits the footage to create film keepsakes or marketing materials for their clients. Wedding videographers record all the key elements of your wedding day, ceremony and reception, and then edit the hours of film during post-production to make a wedding video, social media highlight reels, and any other film features you choose. Wedding videography captures, in live action, your vows, the cake-cutting, the first dance, reception toasts, the decor, the guests and all the details of your day. Many wedding videographers also interview guests (based on an interview list provided by the couple) and incorporate the recorded responses into the wedding video. Event videography typically costs less than wedding videography, as events are shorter with less detail. The national average cost for event videography is $500-$760, while the national average cost for wedding videography is $990-$1,260. A videographer usually does not need to be licensed, but it is important to confirm they have insurance and good standing in the business community, as well as good client reviews. A great majority of the work happens during post-production. The pros watch and blend together the hours of footage they took (sometimes from multiple cameras) to capture the story of your wedding day or event.

How do you find a good caterer?

Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

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 do you choose a wedding videographer?

A wedding videographer will create a lifetime memory for you from edited video footage of your wedding day, ceremony and reception. Choosing a wedding videographer starts with looking online at portfolios of their past work. There’s no need to talk to anyone unless you love what you see. Next, make sure they have good reviews and past client experience; don’t be shy about asking for references if there aren’t any posted online. When you find someone who has a style you love, ask if they are available on your wedding day. If so, it’s time to talk pricing. Be clear about your maximum budget, and ask what kind of packages they offer. Pricing will depend on the number of crew needed for filming, the hours they are required to be onsite, post-production editing, and the length of the final product. Talk with several wedding videographers to get a feel for what prices are like in your region. Nationally, the average cost for wedding videography ranges between $990 and $1,260 per event. Once you agree on a product and have a plan, get everything in a written and signed contract. Clearly state the details of what is expected for your wedding day and from the final product. Be prepared to pay a deposit to reserve their services for the day, then pay the remainder upon receiving the video.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
