I absolutely recommend using Dj Charlie as your Wedding MC/DJ. For Ceremony, Reception Lighting and special effects. He is so easy to work with and does a great job at getting people up and dancing at the reception. I think the Dj is so important to a Wedding and Charlie added so much to our special day. He was such a First Class Professional guy. When we first met Dj Charlie he was professional and organized which inmediately made me interested in using him as our Dj, he was exactly what we asked for at our Wedding. So when it came time to start the planning process of our Wedding we contacted him many times and he was able to respond promptly. From Begining to end He was so amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better MC/DJ, so professional and yet seemed like a part of our family. Dj Charlie was fantastic. He was able to bring friends and family of all ages to the dancefloor He actually meets with you as a couple in advance to find out all about you and then ensures that everything in your Wedding on your Wedding day is just the way you want it. At the end of the night my guests were saying how great our dj was. We have referred all of our other friends to him who will be getting married in the near future. We can't say enough great things about our experience with Charlie Dj and Lighting. I highly recommend Dj Charlie to Anyone and Everyone looking for a GREAT MC and GREAT DJ. Thank You DJ Charlie!!! You are the best!!

We had the pleasure of working with Chef Mike for our wedding reception and we're beyond satisfied with the experience he provided us. He was responsive and professional, and was able to accommodate us on such short notice (little under 2 months) and work with our venue host. You will not find a better experience, quality, and quantity for his price. From the food tasting, to last minute details. The food was amazing all of our guests were delighted with the meals and presentation, with the bartender Chef Mike provided, he even came himself to meet and greet the guests and ourselves. We highly recommend Gourmet Your Way and Chef Mike, we would love to have his business for future events. Thank you again Chef -Mr. & Mrs. Rivas

I usually don't like to rely on others, I like to make sure things are perfect myself! I entrusted Megan to coordinate day of for my wedding, and she sure delivered. I was relaxed the day of my wedding because I knew she wouldn't let me down. She sure delivered and then some! She set up floral she created, set up some greenery and decor we already had, did our arch floral, all bouquets, boutonnieres, and total event set up as well as busing and serving. The day was perfect, and a large part of it was thanks to her! The guest raved about how beautiful everything was. I will definitely recommend her!

Jessica was my day of coordinator and our wedding day was perfect!!! There wasn't any hiccups at all that day, well at least none that I knew about. Her and Dustin were fabulous and on top of it. I was a pretty organized bride and I didn't mind doing a lot of the planning so I didn't feel like I needed the partial planning services, but it was helpful knowing someone was double and triple checking all my contracts. She reminded me of the small important details. We met a week prior to the rehearsal and she made a precise timeline, she was able to put me at ease and I was able to trust her with everything. Jessica also handled our rehearsal, great. My bridal party loved her, and listened to anything she told them to do. I explained to her exactly what I wanted and she executed it perfectly. Couldn't have been any better and I wouldn't change a thing! Thank you so much Jessica and Dustin

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.

There are not enough words to describe how helpful Ricki was as my wedding coordinator. Her experience is so valuable, and her passion unmatched. What I think was most helpful, was Ricki's willingness to be there with you physically, no matter how stressed/anxious/confused you are to make sure you know that everything is going to be okay. I also can't stress enough how helpful it is to have Ricki to connect you to the BEST vendors EVER. I would recommend hiring Ricki as both a planner and day of coordinator, and realize now (and recommend) the value is hiring her along with her assistant, because the reality is, a wedding is a performance that needs to be orchestrated, and you want a team in charge of this. Ricki is tough, but realistic. She is who you need to battle the Wedding Industrial Complex, where you will get taken advantage of left and right. Thanks Ricki!

Amazing service and assistance! They provided several quotes, options, and ideas even. They were able to deliver and pick up the wine glasses, flutes, chairs, and linens. They were kind, on time, and personable. Great service. I would and have already recommended them to others. They seriously made my wedding day stress-free.

If you are looking for a one-stop shop for your wedding, look no further. My experience with LadyMarry was unforgettable and I cannot thank them enough, I highly recommend them. Had my pre-wedding photos & wedding day (big day bundle) done by them and it was beautiful. I did my research and compared countless wedding services around Los Angeles and LadyMarry came out on top. Not only was the price ultra-competitive, but also the quality is next to none. I am so glad I choose LadyMarry for my pre-wedding photos and wedding day DJ, coordination, officiant, photo, video, decor and makeup.

We are so glad that we chose Haus 353 for our flowers and wedding coordination!! Our wedding would not have been as beautiful or as successful without them. Ione and her team are on another level. Very professional, very punctual, very friendly, and so flexible and creative! When something went wrong they were able to come up with a solution. From the very first meeting to the end of the wedding night Ione and her team communicated with us so well and were so on top of it. She also did a great job of calming this perfectionist bride down as the day got closer and closer and made sure our wedding day went smoothly! You can't go wrong with Haus 353, do yourself a favor and hit them up ASAP!

Weddings are stupid and stressful but these guys were freaking amazing. They went so far above and beyond to make mine and Brians wedding day everything we dreamed of. No matter what I was thinking she was there. No matter when I texted or called she responded. Seriously the best choice ever.

I had the best experience with Victoria. She had amazing ideas for my wedding day. The touch of blues in a silver and white tone theme added elegance and grace, just as I was imagining it. All flowers were really fresh and guests were all eager to take it home after. Despite the great work, I had no issues communicating and from the start of our consultation, I noticed how quickly I was understood with my requests. My bouquet was so full and heavy, so I know I got my money’s worth. Definitely a to-go-to florist with any wants and needs that will be fulfilled beyond expected.

I am an la based chef who was recently hired by Joelle. She is the first event coordinator who I worked with since launching the la branch of my business. For our first event together she was very clear in relaying her clients wishes and provided me with support throughout the planning process. The client was ultimately very pleased with Joelle’s efforts, as was I. Looking forward to our next job together!

The Perfectly Event Planning Team was wonderful - I'm a highly organized woman, and didn't think I would need any help for the day of my wedding. However, Jessell offered her services and I'm so happy we hired her. I was able to enjoy our wedding and the entire day and just let Jessell worry about the nitty gritty and the payments and the time-line and getting my husband to where he needed to be! We couldn't have done it without her and don't know that we would have wanted to! I highly recommend Perfectly Event Planning to anyone who needs a little order to their event.

There aren’t enough good things to say about Ishita. We hired Ishita as a “day-of-coordinator” for two of my wedding events and I could not be more glad. She is outstanding an exceeded her “day-of” duties exponentially. She participated in most of my vendor consultations, provided suggestions and advice that I would have never considered, and was an all-star on both the days. Her timeline was on spot- Not only did she create a timeline for both of my events, she even created a timeline for my third event as well, which we didn’t hire her for (I wish we had). She even created a ‘Guest Timeline’ for our guests who were visiting from out of state/country which put in the welcome gift basket. She stayed in constant communication via phone, text, and email. Best of all, on the wedding day everything was flawless and ran smoothly. I can't keep track of all the compliments we got about the wedding flowing so well. Ishita is very easy and great to work with, so friendly, so sweet and calm and very professional. She always stepped in during my bridezilla moments to calm me down. Here are a few examples of what Ishita accomplished for me: 1. She took all of our favors, gifts, table numbers, table name cards, etc. and ensured they were all setup before the event started. 2. She collected all of our gifts and other belongings and gave them to a family member. 3. She made sure our families ate and had a good time. 4. On the reception day, my husband and I didn’t get a chance to eat, she made sure she packed us some food to go. Who does that?? 5. She made sure we took pictures with all our families who were visiting from out state/county 6. She helped our decorator to insure everything was setup before the event were to start. 7. She and her husband (who is great as well) helped my sister with a skit/dance. I cannot recommend her enough! I feel so blessed to have met her. Not only is she a great event planner, she has become a great friend!

I loved working with Jessica! She was my Day-Of Coordinator for my wedding, and she did an amazing job! During the preparation process, she thought of so many details that never would have occurred to my husband and me. On the day of the wedding, she did an excellent job of coordinating all the vendors while also keeping my bridal party and me on track. I highly recommend Jessica!

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!

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.
