I would highly recommend LadyMarry, I was travelling from overseas for my wedding and Birte could not have been more helpful, any advice I required she happily gave, responded to all my e mails in a timely manner. The flowers she provided were absolutely stunning, they lasted so long too. I would highly recommend if anyone is looking for any advice on weddings that they use LadyMarry. Birte, thank you so much for helping make our wedding day so special.

Hyson catered my 30-person wedding! With the help of 3 other amazing assistants, he created unique and delicious appetizers, our wedding meal, as well as a late-night snack. He was great at communicating, showed up on time, and dressed professionally for both our tasting and the wedding. Overall, he was the perfect chef/vendor for our event and I would not hesitate to contact him again :)

I absolutely recommend Kristine and her team. She met up with my husband and I at our venue about a month before our wedding. This was a several hour drive for her which we really appreciated. She took the time to go through every detail, not only about the catering component, but the entire wedding. She clearly has a great deal of experience in the business and we got a lot of great ideas and input from her. She also was very much our advocate when dealing with the difficult bar manager at our venue. The day of the wedding she and her team set everything up perfectly. Her staff was amazing. They were all so sweet and stayed to the very end of the night making sure everything was cleaned and finished. Again I completely recommend Kristine, our wedding was amazing and a huge success which she had a big part of!

Beth is a wonderful, understanding, patient and caring florist. She truly loves her job and has a passion for floral design. She is also great about coordinating day of events. I hired Beth to do flowers for my Mexican themed wedding, as well as assist me in day of coordination. She went as far as traveling with me to a pick-your-own dahlias farm where we decided on which flowers would be the best for my bouquets and arrangements the day before the wedding. Beth is also timely, responds to emails very quickly and is very well organized. I have recommended her to other friends for their weddings and they also had very positive experiences with her. When I consulted her for advice on my wedding coordination, Beth had wonderful insights and opinions due to her years of experience. In short, Beth has a great eye for design and is very patient with her clients. I know I was always changing my mind and on the fence, and Beth did a great job keeping me on track and helping me make important decisions regarding my floral arrangements and wedding coordination.

Mary Kay was our daughter's wedding coordinator. She worked with us for a year on ironing out details and had many useful ideas and suggestions. Day of the wedding she was spot on, I didn't worry about a thing because she took care of it all from start to finish. She was resourceful, creative, high energy and thoroughly a pleasure to work with. She has a lot of experience which makes her invaluable!

Robyn made my bridal shower a total surprise! I was not expecting it at all. It was based on me, as the theme was what I love best, horses. I could tell she had spent so much time researching to find decorations and party favors that would make my bridal shower so special. She also helped plan my backyard wedding. I'm not a very good party planner myself so had no idea where to start. When I hired her, she stepped right in and took the control I was looking for. I could relax and have a great time at my wedding knowing every little detail was being watched and taken care of by Robin.

They say a wedding is only as good as the people who plan it. We absolutely LOVED working with Rubal at Events by Rubal!!!! We have the Rubal to thank for the most beautiful, seamless and perfect day in our lives! From the moment we hired Rubal, we felt not one ounce of stress or worry for our wedding day. Who knew wedding planning could be so fun? Rubal is the sweetest, most creative, talented and organized person and it genuinely shows through her amazing events. She was there every single step of the way from the concept and design of the wedding, helping us find amazing vendors, organizing and facilitating all vendor meetings, and providing us with professional guidance in a non-obtrusive and tasteful way. With my husband and I both working full time jobs, she made planning SO easy and stress free. Our wedding was absolutely stunning and flawlessly executed and it we owe it all to Rubal's dedication to ensure that we had and ENJOYED the wedding of our dreams. We received overwhelming compliments on not only the design details, but how smooth, elegant and effortless the wedding day was. It was the best decision we could have ever made to hire Rubal to plan our wedding and feel so lucky to have worked her. Rubal we love you! - A+M

Hiring Diana and Tammy to be the day-of coordinators for our wedding was probably the BEST decision my husband and I made! They took all the pressure off both of us the whole week leading up to our wedding. I met with Diana and Tammy (via GChat) at least once a month to check the status of what tasks I had completed and to make sure I was on task -- this really held me accountable as a chronic procrastinator. As we got closer to the date of the wedding, we even met weekly! After each of the meetings I felt even more excited and at ease about our big day! Tammy and Diana really helped me with some touchy family issues and they had some great suggestions on how to handle them. If I were to ever have a huge event again, I wouldn't hesitate to recruit their services... in fact, whenever my friends get engaged, I highly recommend Tammy and Diana!

She is very creative, which is something I am definitely not, so I appreciated that aspect of her work. I did notice that she is a little scatter-brained and less organized than my other wedding vendors. In the end, she got the job done and it turned it nicely.

I worked with Shereen who was phenomenal! Any questions or concerns I had she was able to address in a timely manner. I rented linens, chair covers, table runners, and napkins from them and they were able to create such an elegant look for our wedding reception. They have such a wide selection to choose from and really work with you to stay within your budget. Will definitely keep them in mind for any upcoming events.

Thank you for all of your help and creativity in planning the best wedding ever. I couldn't have been more happy with what you helped me achieve. Everything from beginning to end was perfect and you allowed me to have the most stress free day. It couldn't have been more smooth and successful! All of the design and decor was beautiful, and all of the food and menu planning you helped me create was a hit! My guests couldn't have been more satisfied especially with the signature drinks! Thank you for being super attentive, detail oriented and hands on! You went above and beyond and had it all together!

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.
