Bravo!!!! You're an Amazing officiate Saundra Anderson!!!! My wedding couldn't have been any better. We loved every moment. For my husband and myself, it was Perfect!! Our officiate Saundra was Awesome! She looked great, loved what she wore; from head to toe. Her tone was perfect. (Which that was something important to me, that my officiate has a soft pleasant tone for my guests to listen too/ I didn't want anyone that sounded like a heavy smoker). Every word spoken soft and pleasant was heard through the room. Saundra was absolutely the right woman to perform our ceremony! Her up lifting spirit added so much to our ceremony. We were more than satisfied and in awe at how well everything came together. I would absolutely recommend Saundra to perform any ones wedding. You will not be disappointed. My family was impressed, especially my Dad!!! Who means everything to me. Thank you so much Saundra. You will always be apart of our special day as well as, every time we talk about our wedding day, you/ Saundra will be mentioned with the utmost respect and appreciation! Love and Respect to the Best officiate: Saundra Anderson 💞

I wish I could give her a million stars. From her original quote to her sweet and thoughtful follow-up email the day after my wedding, I was never disappointed by the professionalism and service provided by Alisa and her colleague. She worked catering into our already tight budget, corresponded with me (your typical type A personality) about small details and ever changing menu ideas/headcount, and was prompt, professional, and wonderful! The food was OUTSTANDING. She created 4 different pasta dishes, two excellent salads, veggies, and wonderful garlic bread. She and her colleague rinsed off all of our rented tableware, put them back into their crates, and even cleaned up after guests long after dinner was done! I could not have been happier with the quality and quantity of the food prepared and received several wonderful comments from my guests about the choice of food and caterer. Alisa and her colleague mingled with our guests, made themselves available when needed, and were very self-sufficient, which is a great thing to have on the day of a wedding! They even prepared a small treat for breakfast the next day. All in all, I would hire them again in a heartbeat and would advise you all to do the same if her quote comes your way. "Passionate" about food and service is what Alisa stands for and I couldn't ask for better for my wedding.

Anna Marie was the day-of coordinator for our Wedding last Saturday in Indian Wells. I cannot say enough positive things about Anna Marie. She was extremely pleasant to deal with and had a wealth of knowledge regarding weddings. She helped with absolutely everything and was beyond efficient. I would recommend Anna Marie to anyone in a heart beat. Thank you so much, Anna Marie, I wish I could work with you on a regular basis!! Laura

I dont have enough time or space to thank Elizabeth enough for the amazing job she did as our 'day-of' coordinator. We had our wedding at a private residence in the backyard which required a ton of planning and details that all had to be executed and coordinated over the course of 13hours. This was a long event, and from my perspective quite complicated which is why I needed someone professional on my side to help. Elizabeth was just the person for the job. Elizabeth brings a calming patient energy that can be sorely lacking in wedding preparation I found. I was so grateful for that. She also has a professional, tactful approach to dealing with people. She was willing to go well out of her way to put me at ease by driving far, in traffic multiple times to do walk throughs and site visits with us. On top of all that, she ran my rehearsal the day before and made sure everything was prepped and I was comfortable before leaving that day. On the day of, she was a super star. I wasn't at the venue prior to the wedding, but I had total confidence that everything was in good hands. She was hands on and helpful in every regard, at one point trying to physically help move a dance floor panel that had come dislodged, haha. She stayed until the bitter end, even after I extended the dance an additional hour. She was one of the last people I saw that night, and made me feel so good to have her on my side that whole day and night. Thank you again, Elizabeth. Keep up the great work!

I don't even know where to start! Nick is absolutely AMAZING!!! My husband and I had originally met up with him to talk wedding cake. But then he had stated him and his hubbie had gotten married at the same location where my wedding was located as well (The Vacaville Opera House). He went to tell us how he catered his own wedding and asked if we would be interested in that. After tasting his DELICIOUS white cake with strawberry cream cheese filling (which we went for with our cake) we knew we had to have a tasting. A few weeks later, my father and I had a catering taste test and fell in LOVE! Everything was delicious and full of flavor! We went with tri-tip, veggie pasta, rice and veggies. Since that day he has been there for me none stop. Attending meetings with me, answering any questions I had, and would even call me to calm me down if I has having a bride melt down. Hes passionate in what he does and he does a damn good job too. Shoot, he even came to my rescue the day of my wedding when a few things were missing! He made sure I didn't have a thing to worry about on my big day. I wish I could give him more stars on this rating because he deserves them! I will definitely be going back to Nick if I ever need any kind of dessert or event catering done. Thank you for everything darling!

Amber and her staff were very professional and helpful through this whole process. She went above and beyond for us, example: it looked like rain on the day of our wedding, and for three days she called and emailed several companies to help find us a decent price for tents, we ended up not needing them but she was on it and meant a lot to my wife and myself. We ran out of alcohol halfway through the night and her staff ran to the store twice more to make sure everyone had drinks. If you’re looking for someone who is professional, goes above and beyond, and a genuinely sweet person, than look no more, her name is Amber ;) Thanks a lot for everything Amber, seriously you were great and all your staff was incredibly nice :)

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.

Wow - what can I even begin to say about Joyeux Events. I'll preface this review that I was one of those brides that did not think a coordinator was important, I had already gotten a lot of things accomplished and we had plenty of friends and family to help right. WRONG! Under the suggestion of my mom, we hired Jessica and her husband Robert to be our wedding coordinators. It took about 2 minutes on the phone with her to realize I absolutely needed her on my big day and about another 3 minutes to see how much easier the last 5 months would have been on planning if I had her by my side helping. Jessica is creative and knows how to decorate, design and incorporate whatever theme you want into your event, for us, it was the most important event in our lives, our wedding. Jessica was helpful and volunteered to assist for things I did not even think to ask. She had connections to vendors that I did not know of, which at the last minute when things never go has planned she completely saved us on things. One of the best traits is she knows when to step in and help (like most brides, I was over involved and spread way too thin). Something else that is so important... is on the day of your wedding. You need someone that is not emotionally charged by the situation. Someone that can look at things for a logistical point of view, and personally I am glad I had Jessica in charge to handle the many personalities of my friends and family and help everyone get where they needed to go in an efficient order. Everyone might want to help clean up, but you need someone with a commanding presence to organize that (as well as a multitude of everything else going on)! Jessica was a complete dream to work with and I couldn't imagine my wedding day without her. Not only is she a complete professional and knows exactly what she is doing in her industry, Jessica is honest, hardworking and a wonderful person to be around. My friends and family loved working with her as well and were so appreciative of all the work that her and her husband did. I would use them again for any event we have and if you want your special event to be just as successful - I would urge you to use Joyeux Events!

Erika (Cast Your Cares Event Planning) is a true professional planner and an excellent event coordinator. Rosa and I chose Erika to coordinate our wedding and although it was the biggest wedding in town, it certainly had it's challenges and Ms. Erika handled everyone of them like a pro. We could not have been happier with Erika and her work with us and our vendors. Her greatest asset was no more evident and very much on display, the day of our wedding. Wow... Erika was spot on from start to finish, keeping all those involved with our special day, on time and together. From getting my bride's hair and makeup finished (with photos!) and into the limo to the church ON TIME, to making sure all of our guests were enjoying the reception (photos of us at each table), and then keeping us on time leaving the reception and off to our life as husband and wife. Just a well done job all around. I would like to complement Erika on her beautiful decorations for the reception (tables, cake tables, etc,) and her expert management the guest seating chart (which is not and easy chore) .... Rosa and I were so impressed with Erika's work coordinating our wedding, we do plan to chose Cast Your Cares again with upcoming professional and special events (milestone birthdays and charity functions). Thanks again Erika! You are a dream to work with and you helped us truly enjoy our very special day! Rosa and Pete Mouwen

Danny's floral arrangements are beautiful and thoughtful composites plucked out of fairy tale imagery. I was a bride who hired Danny for my wedding flowers. Originally, I just wanted fresh flowers, some roses, something simple and pretty. However, for the centerpieces, I requested a special set-up with Moroccan lanterns, rustic wood slabs, and flowers spilling out the lanterns flanked by oranges (a Chinese symbol for fortune). In addition, I noted that our wedding colors were pink, blue, cream and gold. Danny was extremely open, flexible, and considerate in listening to my and my husband's vision. In addition, there were a few last minute changes such as: number of reception tables, changing my bouquet to a cascade bouquet, and adding more corsages and boutonnieres to the order. Danny was always very patient and graciously said that he'll do everything he could to make my wedding a dream come true. On the day of my wedding, I walked into my bridal changing room and saw the most gorgeous bouquet I'd ever seen. Blush roses, blue orchis, delicate violet flowers, and eucalyptus coins tumbled majestically in a floral waterfall - wild and natural, yet together making a disciplined formation. Later, I walked down the aisle and saw my beloved standing in front of a gazebo that was swathed in white chiffon and vibrant florals, also Danny's work. An hour and a half later, when we entered the reception room, I was met with the magnificence of our sweetheart table. Being a practical person, I had just discussed with Danny that we'd have a simple sweetheart table with my bridal bouquet as a centerpiece. What met my eyes was a golden tablecloth filled with rosette swirls. Across it were crystal goblets, Moroccan lanterns juxtaposed with oranges and golden frames containing my husband's and my pictures and standing atop tomes and wooden slabs. In that moment, my simple self became suddenly enraptured by a desire for lovely things, and in my transformation, decided that I must preserve my bridal bouquet. Danny indeed works magic.

Julianne was amazing! We hired her for our day-of wedding coordination and she seriously jumped in and started helping where we needed help and collecting people/family members when we needed photos. Julianne got all the vendors paid, and even made sure we had all the paperwork in order for the license signing. She even helped create the boutteniers we forgot to make the night before and they turned out perfect! She helped make our wedding stress-free and it was amazing! I highly recommend her and her amazing organization!!

Kris was the officiant at our wedding as well as the ceremony and reception coordinator. She is the absolute most organized person I know and understands and respects deadlines. She met with me numerous times throughout the planning of our wedding, and after listening and taking notes about what I wanted, she took charge and completely organized the ceremony, was in charge of delegating tasks to people in a clear manor, all the decorations for the reception, place settings, room design, decorations at the ceremony cite all while making sure all our immediate family members and bridal party were taken care of. I never had to worry about decisions she would make, as I had complete trust in her ability to create what I had invisioned for my special day. On a side note, she also coordinated our engagement party, and it turned out to be a total blast for everyone! I would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding who needs a coordinator or officiant. I have absolutely no complaints. She is professional, understanding, caring, devoted and she really puts her heart into it, as if she was planning it for her own son or daughter.

If I could leave more stars for CRC Custom Events I would! Christina was absolutely amazing and took all of the stress away from wedding planning so that I could relax throughout the whole process and just enjoy the day. She coordinated with our vendors, made sure our payments were made on time, handpicked our flowers and decorations, created a detailed itinerary, set up and cleaned up our venue, and most importantly made my Pinterest board come to life! Her attention to detail is what impressed me the most. From making sure that we had appetizers on our table so that we didn’t forget to eat, to sending our guests home with flowers at the end of the night, it was the small things that made our wedding so special. She was with us throughout the entire process, from the first consultation to the big day, she communicated with us the entire time and took all of the stress off my plate. I can’t thank her and her team enough. Our DJ mentioned at the end of our reception that he had never seen a wedding that actually stuck to their itinerary and it was all thanks to CRC! I’m truly grateful for their hard work and for making my wedding absolutely perfect.

"I hired Charles as my day of coordinator for my wedding. He was recommended by one of my other vendors and described him as being very organized, which was exactly what I wanted! The day of also included communications and meetings leading up to the big day to ensure everything was perfect! Everything from the ceremony to cocktail hour to the reception went smoothly and all my bridesmaids kept saying to me "wow, your coordinator is awesome!!! He is so on top of everything!!!" which definitely says a lot because my bridesmaids are real tough critics! I would not hesitate to recommend Charles to anyone because he is personable, organized, will make suggestions that only enhance your concept, and ask questions regarding logistics or details you didn't think of yourself!" - Sue May Tam

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.

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. 

How much does it cost for a wedding planner?

Wedding planning is a full-time job — unless you hire a professional to handle the hard work for you. The cost for a wedding planner will depend on the level of service you desire. The least expensive wedding planner option is day-of coordination, then partial service, then full-service.  

The national average cost for wedding planning is between $990 and $1,300. Costs are greatly affected by region, with rural or smaller-town wedding planners often far more affordable than planners in higher-cost cities. Here are some examples of the various levels of wedding planning and their potential average costs:

  • Day-of-wedding coordination: $800-$1,700. Day-of services can include the planner finalizing all details, creating a timeline, confirming vendors and overseeing all setup, day-of activities, and cleanup. The couple does all the front-end planning and contracts all the vendors. Time commitment could be about 15-25 hours, depending on pricing.
  • Partial service: $1,500-$3,800. Here the planner works with the couple from the beginning, helping contract vendors, creating a timeline, and overseeing all details of day-of execution. Time commitment could be about 30-60 hours, depending on package and pricing.
  • Full service: $3,500-$8,000 or more. Here the professional handles all wedding and planning details including working on design, securing rentals, getting the venue and vendors, and handling complete execution of the event. Time commitment could be 50-150 hours or more, depending on package and pricing.
  • Consulting: $50-$150 per hour for design, vendor, reception and other wedding planning consultation.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
