Not only did Fresh & Fizzy provide excellent service but Drew's knowledge and advice was invaluable in planning our event. We ended up having him and his team do much more than we thought we would and we were so happy that we did.

Manya and her team made all my dreams come true for my colorful chai-themed co-ed baby shower. I'm extremely detail-oriented and a perfectionist by heart - so that's a challenge for any event planner :) Manya helped execute my vision to the T! She's very hardworking, kind and accommodating to all needs - big and small. She has good ideas and can be flexible to work with on any budget. She's also very responsive to text, email and phone calls. You won't regret collaborating with Manya - she's passionate about her work and will help make your event truly dazzle :)

Actually I didn't meet the LadyMarry coordinator and florist, until the rehearsal day, because I was planning my wedding remotely in New York. They are very responsive and patient to my endless questions, and did a great job about organizing the rehearsal and communicating with the other vendors. I always saw Melissa and Donna running around. Hiring you was the best decision I made for my wedding. Thank you!

An associate recommended Rainbow Chefs to provide the food for an event I was planning for a family gathering. I decided to go through with their services. There were kids and adults participating so I was a little nervous about how it would go, but everyone had a great time! It was so fun and interactive for the kids. The food was delicious! Would definitely recommend Rainbow Chefs!

We Hird Marianne for a grand opening event and were extremely happy with the floral arrangements. The space looked beautiful! She arrived prompt and early to set up and helped make decisions on placement which was a great help since we were so busy with everything else! C&M was definitely an extension of our event set-up and we appreciate their partnership!

Velina was such a pleasure to work with for our wedding! She has a very relaxed presence (which was a pleasant change from other planners we had looked into/worked with). She was our day of coordinator and she did our flowers. I wanted pretty simple florals, and she did a beautiful job with little input needed from me (which was very nice with all that was on my plate!) Velina was so calm and flexible and was really willing to do whatever we needed in the weeks leading up to our wedding - including picking up tons of personal items and decorations to deliver on the day of! A huge stress relief. She ensured that our day went smoothly and we were really able to sit back and enjoy it. On top of all that, her prices are very reasonable and she is an amazing value. I can’t say enough how much we appreciate everything! Thank you, Velina!

My client had a last minute corporate event and oddly requested Breakfast Burritos and Smoothies for their morning fare instead of the usual bagels, pastries, and coffee. After calling around and not getting any calls back from other catering places I found Kristine from This Moment. Thank God! They were responsive, professional, and provided our corporate meeting with the delicious start to the morning the client requested. Definitely will be calling Kristine again in the future!

My partner and I knew we only wanted a limited amount at our wedding, and Beth was happy to work with our vision. I was impressed with the bouquets she created with our color palette (I even dried mine so I'll have it forever) and she made boutonnieres out of hops for the guys. She even had a chuppah that we were able to rent, so we didn't have to worry about setup. I would definitely recommend Beth for any event, big or small.

I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone who is looking for an incredibly competent and hard working professional with the expertise and experience to do it all: from bartender, to chef, to party planner and manager. I hired Jennifer to help me with all aspects of hosting Thanksgiving dinner for 20 people, and from the moment she arrived, she hit the ground running and jumped right in. Not only was she able to handle a high volume of work quickly and efficiently (she can hustle!!), she was also able to think on her feet and effectively handle the expected -- and the unexpected (like one of our ovens going out!) -- with ease and a calm, positive disposition. I could count on her to pull off a wonderful event, and I don't know what I would have done without her! If you hire Jennifer to help you with any and all aspects of hosting an event, you won't be disappointed -- she's amazing!!

I had the pleasure of working on over 100 diverse events with Mary Kay throughout our 15-year working relationship and have continued using her as my go to event planner. She is incredibly efficient, creative & manages a budget respectfully. She has a vast portfolio of event experience to pull from, and has managed some of the biggest events in Bay Area history. Her attention to detail and her ability to build strong relationships with her clients, her vendors & workers along with event guests, make her a powerful force in the event arena. She takes great pride in being the best & can be relied upon to get the job done right, always. I highly recommend her!

I contacted Rubal for emergency help planning a birthday party for my 3-year-old nephew and she exceeded expectations and then some. She really listened to what we wanted - she brings an amazing balance of creativity and flawless execution to the event planning process. There wasn't a detail that was overlooked - and she clearly cared about personalizing the party for us and for my nephew. She was also an absolute pleasure to work with - a great eye for design, and a fantastic sense of humor and patience. Highly recommend.

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Vanessa and her team. To start, I booked her super last minute (literally the day before I needed her). I was scrambling to pull together and offsite meeting that got moved 200 miles away due to the tragic fires happening in Northern California. Vanessa came to my aid by helping me brainstorm a fun, interactive activity for the team at their offsite remote location. She set up an amazing wine and whiskey tasting event that the team just loved! Everything was tailored to perfection! She event created customized wine glasses that each member of the team got to take home with them. To make matters more complex, the location where the event was happened to be located in a remote with limited (to no) resources to catering, grocery stores, etc. Did I mention that I was coordinating this entire event remotely ?!?! Vanessa stepped up and offered to not only provide an awesome team building event, but picked up dinner, plate it to perfection, and bartended for the reminder of the evening. This was phenomenal!!! Working with her was not only a joy, but easy and smooth. I can't wait to work with her again. You would be a fool not to book her 100x over!

My wife and I had thought we'd do our own wedding planning. We'd found our venue and vendors on our own; how hard could the finishing touches be? Especially for the small, simple event we envisioned? In hindsight, we'd accomplished only the easiest parts of the process, and without Diana and Tammy's help I don't know how we would have had the wonderful, stress-free event that we did. While we hired them as day-of-coordinators, they provided much more than day-of services, taking over vendor interactions months in advance of the actual event, actively helping to plan table layouts and other details, and in weekly video chats they provided organization and discipline that kept my wife and I on-task. There's so much work behind even a "simple" wedding that we hadn't even thought about, but Diana and Tammy guided us through it all. They were lifesavers; our wedding day was everything we'd hoped that it would be, and Diana and Tammy were absolutely critical to making it happen.

Thanks Rosey for helping our event look beautiful and festive. I knew that I wouldn't know where to start for decorating for our company holiday party so I looked for help and I'm glad I found Rosey. She was able to get all the supplies and did all the decorating while I planned the logistics. No way that I could have done both at the same time. The first picture is the empty bar before, and the rest are after it had been decorated. One comment I would say is that she is kind of spunky but not in a bad way! Just FYI to those who like a complete rigid, black-and-white professional working for them, I would say that may not be what you will get. However she is a pleasure to work with and I'm very happy with how it all turned out!

Brea's approach to events is refreshing in what seems to be an otherwise impersonal experience. Rather than just pick services or vendors from a list, Brea will actively try to get to know you and understand your needs and how best to accommodate them, especially under that big bad umbrella known as the budget!

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. 

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
