The food was good. There was plenty of it, and they arrived on-time. A backyard wedding with 70 guests, everything was very good.

Absolutely amazing! Monica went above and beyond for our wedding. We had 160 guests who all loved our Mexican candy table, especially the chamoy fountain! It was a huge hit. They all didn't eat their dinner because they filled up on yummy candy ;)

Richard was fantastic! We needed a bartender for our small wedding and Richard was perfect fit. He was very easy to work with and above and beyond accommodating. We had a fairly simple bar with beer and wine only so instead of just standing around, he started helping to tidy up the whole venue. He even bussed some tables! We were so surprised and impressed. He was also very kind to our guests. We will definitely be hiring Richard again if we have another event.

We hired Marie and her team as day of coordinator for our wedding this past June in La Jolla, San Diego at the La Jolla Women's Club. Marie made our wedding day a complete breeze! You can tell she's been in the business a long time and had so many helpful suggestions and ideas. Her and her team were punctual, professional, and have all of the qualities to pull of a beautiful wedding. Our wedding was mostly DIY- we booked a venue, but brought in all of our own decor, linens, etc. Marie and her team arrived on time to set everything up beautifully, and they guided us from start to finish to make sure everything was exactly as we wished. Marie and her team went above and beyond "day of coordinator" as they attended our venue walkthrough with caterer and photographer, as well as our rehearsal to guide us! We are SO thankful we had Marie and her team with us on our wedding day.

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.

Annemarie was a phenomenal wedding planner and we could not be happier with the job she did. She was extremely organized, coordinated with all the vendors, and thought of all the details. She had great communication with us and also did a ton of stuff in the background to make sure the day went smoothly. We are so grateful that Annemarie was our wedding planner and highly recommend her!!

Rinna was sooo amazing! From our initial meeting, until the end of our wedding day, she was there for us. She was present for meetings with vendors and was always in contact with them with questions or reaching out to them about documents that needed to be submitted, etc.. She made sure things were done on time. Rinna's friendly and outgoing personality truly made the wedding planning process fun and enjoyable. She was easy to contact and made countless suggestions that fit our needs. Rinna most definitely goes above and beyond, and put her whole heart into helping with our big day! We are very pleased with her services and grateful for everything she did for us! Thank you Rinna, we appreciate you!

Eventspell did awesome job coordinating my very very detailed wedding!! We had lots of surprises and set up for the event and EventSpell took care of the coordination. They spent extra time making sure all was well and the event was set up and all the way down to the clean up. The day would have been a lot more stressful, but Eventspell made sure all went well on our special day. My guest said it was the most beautiful, best wedding they have been to. I wouldn't have been able to make it all happen without EventSpell!! Thank you for caring as if it was your own event!!

I can't speak highly enough of Valentina! She was our wedding day coordinator and I could not have asked for more. Everything went so perfect and so smooth. From the moment I met her, I knew she is someone who strives to perfection. I am myself very detailed oriented and I recognized alike-souls :). She went above and beyond to make sure everything would go smooth, she is very detailed oriented, very fast, and on top of everything. She is also very easy to get along with, flexible, kind, great personality. Being new in town, and not having a huge support system here, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed about the whole wedding planning, and having her onboard was magical, she was an angel! Can't speak enough of her, thank you Valentina!!

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.

Every bride dreams of their special day and I am no different. My husband and I had so much to do to make our dream wedding come to life. We hired Vanessa to help make our dreams come true and we are so glad we did. Vanessa had been amazing from the very first time I spoke with her. Even before hiring her she gave me great advice, gave me pointers, and also made sure I asked all the necessary questions. She got along well with my husband, myself, and my entire family. She is always very organized, professional and concerned in making sure everything goes perfect the day of. I honestly have no idea what I would have done without her. She made sure all my worries were her own and that I had an enjoyable and relaxing day, which I did. Everything turned out wonderful and I had many compliments from guests after the wedding, specifically pertaining to her and her team. Thank you Vanessa for everything you did and for helping our dreams come true! -Nicole Carlson

I hired Dj-B3 to host my best friend's wedding and he rocked it! Great MC and Tom really listened to what music we wanted, even though we changed our minds up to the last moment....He had great suggestions and used music that we all chose, and mixed it in with music that got all of us on the dance floor. Tom set-up a nice microphone station with a small table for speeches and toasts. We were all surprised by how many people used it to add their personal feelings about the bride and groom. Tom spoke easily to young and old and played music for all ages. I would Highly recommend Dj-B3 for your party. Class act.

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.

I hired Candace as the coordinator for my wedding. She went above and beyond my expectations. I felt like so many worries I had melted away once I began working with her. She is very dedicated to providing the best experience for her clients and she looks at every detail... even all those details that only an experienced event professional would even think of. I would not hesitate to hire her for another event I have and would recommend her to anyone looking for someone who is reliable, organized and proactive in planning their event. She is beyond outstanding!

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!!!

      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.
