Mike catered an event with 60 people expected at our home. Everything I requested food-wise was supplied, and the food was served within our requested time frame. The hamburgers/cheeseburgers and chicken were very good, with all the fresh fixin's, and the chocolate ice cream shakes were awesome. Mike's fryer for the fries was not working, but he was able to use our home oven. Would have loved to have tasted those fresh fried! Suggestions: chill the root beer prior to using for floats, and have enough floats and shakes for each person to have one of each treat. Mike was very easy to work with, and I would use Mike again.

I can't describe how much I enjoyed my experience working with Megan Brown. Her floral arrangements were gorgeous, and she was able to include more flowers than originally proposed because we came in under budget. I LOVED my bridal bouquet and the cohesive elegance of all the flowers for the full bridal party. Megan was able to incorporate my favorite two-toned calla lilies while making the entire arrangement look lush and natural. Delivery was punctual and easy, and her set up in the reception hall looked wonderful. The lantern centerpieces were the perfect match for my vision of Megan communicates well, through both email and text, and is flexible with payment schedules. I highly recommend her floral and event planning expertise!

I Hired Richard for a Corporate Event of 100 guests. He showed up early, had his full portable bar set up (which looked great) and he was very personable with all the guests. His communication leading up to the event and after was awesome and he was always a phone call or text away. Thanks Richard for taking care of our companies guests! Will definitely hire again for the next event!

Jessica was great and went above and beyond what we hired her to do. I found her on Craigslist so was a bit skeptical, but it all turned out amazingly. We hired her to prep, cook, serve and clean for our meal at my husband's 40th birthday party for approximately 30 people. Jessica and her team did so much more that that. They served appetizers, acted as bartenders, did store runs, helped us put a shade shelter in the pool and so much more. They acted more as event coordinators than just cooks. My friends were very impressed and said she made the party! Thanks Jessica!

Marie was fantastic to work with! She goes above and beyond as a day-of coordinator to make sure that every detail is in place. She has great organizational and soft skills, which is important when working with family members and vendors. It's apparent she loves her job and genuinely cares about her client. I would absolutely recommend Marie to anyone On the day of our wedding, our Hawaiian Ice vendor wasn't serving the ice cream we had requested (and paid extra for). When I realized this, I was about to go over and talk to the vendor but before I could even step in that direction, Marie intercepted me and said, "Don't you worry about a thing. I'll handle this." A couple minutes later every guest who wanted ice cream had some :) Marie even met us the evening before the wedding to pick up decorations so we wouldn't have to worry about taking them over the day of the event! She is an absolute pleasure to work with and I'm so grateful to have found her. Our wedding wouldn't have been half as spectacular without her amazing support. Marie, thank you so much!! Laurie O.

First Class Catering Service catered an Italian buffet for my sister's Sweet 16. They were very friendly and accommodating throughout our event planning process and tailored the buffet to our needs in order to make our event a success. Ultimately, the event was great and our guests loved the food. It was a pleasure working with Michael and will definitely recommend him to friends and family who are in search of a catering service. Thanks!

I hired Haute Productions for a private cooking class for a bachelor party event, and we had the best time. Keith was an awesome teacher and host, he made the experience wonderful. Everyone had a blast and it was the best part of the entire weekend. Not to mention the fact that the food was awesome! I would highly recommend using Haute Productions for any event you may have.

Isaac's Catering was unbelievable! Mary was extremely accommodating. We had to cancel our event last minute due to fires in our area. We rescheduled without a hitch. Delivery was right on time, food quality was top notch, and the price was fantastic. Everyone at the party enjoyed the delicious food. There is no doubt Isaac's Catering will be serving our parties in the future. Thank you for a job well done. Sincerly, Ronda

Haus 353 did the invitations, centerpieces, dessert table display, banners, and alternative guestbook for our mother's retirement celebration. We couldn't have been happier with the result of the event. As usual, she went above and beyond what was expected. We have hired Ione in the past and will continue to refer her to friends and family.

At first I didn't think I needed a wedding planner, but when I hired Ester (Sister), I found out how many things where missing in my plans. I couldn't have done it without her. Everything went great, from start, to finish. I thank her for making my wedding the best experience ever. Five Stars all the way!!

Kim is a wonderful event planner to have on your team! We found her to be very understanding of the type of wedding ceremony we wanted and she asked great questions to keep us thinking. Her years of experience have helped us plan our small, ideal destination wedding ceremony.

THATS MY DAWG CONCESSIONS did an outstanding for our corporate event from start to finish. I was skeptical at first due to the size of the company(3 employees, but 8 years in business and extremely motivated) however, they quickly gained my confidence as I was working with very tight deadline, in need of a theme, and obviously had to quickly decide what to serve, I threw a few ideas out there and a couple of days later they had the theme, the menu, and they were reasonable with the prices considering we were starting from ground zero and had a short deadline. I would totally recommend them, customer service fantastic and they kept our company “in the loop” as to their progress. The food is fresh and presented nicely and very good. I am still amazed how they came through for us. Bob Kitzmiller GM Roto Rooter

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.

We had Portero Concierge handle our 50 wedding anniversary party. Everything went off without a hitch. The setting and the attention to detail was superb. Marni was as excited as we were about our party. We highly recommend Portero for all of your event needs big or small. Even day to day activities that you just don’t have time for.

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.

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.
