We weren't sure what to expect when we arrived for our tasting appointment to potentially hire Mama Lisa's for our upcoming wedding, but when we tasted the food it was delicious! And the price was affordable. We couldn't pass up the opportunity. When the day came the staff went above and beyond. They were outgoing and friendly and took such good care of us on our special day. As the bride and groom we were unable to eat almost at all, but before the reception started the staff let us take some food and hide with our secret meals before rejoining our guests. Our family and friends were excited about the menu items, and even those who weren't all raved about the food during, and after. A couple people even asked who we hired, either curious to hire for catering, or simply to eat at their restaurant. We absolutely love this business and all they did to take care of us. If you're looking to hire a caterer, I SERIOUSLY recommend you contact Mama Lisa's and get your tasting appointment scheduled. I am very impressed with the food, kindness and professionalism that this business has.

Karen is amazing! I feel like this review doesn't do her justice. I showed her pictures of arrangements I liked and she went above and beyond to bring my vision to life. Even finding peonies (my favorite flower) out of season for my bouquet. I wanted to avoid typical wedding flowers and she did just that. Her flowers were vibrant, fresh, organic and completely beautiful. All of our guest commented on how beautiful the flowers were. We also hired her as a wedding planner and day of planner. Having a very anxious mother she took all of the stress of my husband and I and we were able to completely relax and enjoy our day. I would absolutely recommend her for any event. She will work within your budget and stick to it!

Carla was absolutely wonderful! Prior to my wedding she responded to all of my emails/texts promptly (usually in less than an hour) and made herself available to help me with anything I needed. The week of my wedding she was great, she made sure that all details were taken care of and reminded me of items I had completely forgotten about (like additional decor, seating arrangements for my newly divorced parents, etc.). She was great at the rehearsal dinner making sure all wedding party knew exactly where to be at what time and answered all questions. She also carefully maneuvered family members to avoid any drama (my family has some issues) which was a MAJOR relief for me as I was very anxious about how family members would interact. On the actual wedding day we counted on Carla to decorate the entire venue with the decor we provided and she did a wonderful job! Her experience with weddings and photography shows because she knew exactly how and where to place decorations so that they would be showcased throughout the event. Once the ceremony/reception began, I was so thankful to have Carla. She kept everyone on schedule and made sure there were no issues. When our DJ went rogue (he was a really nice guy but did not follow ANY of our playlist suggestions...) she repeatedly made song changes and did her best to keep him in line (this was a full time job). She made sure the night went smoothly and everyone has been talking about how great she was. If you are looking for a wedding planner or day of coordinator you should ABSOLUTELY hire Carla. Our wedding would have been very different if she had not been there to take care of all of the day of issues and I cannot recommend her enough!

Mary is amazing!!! I was impressed from my first conversation with her through the last! She was so incredibly organized and took all the stress off me for the day of. She brought my vision to life and really worked with me on what I did and did not want for the day of. She ran and managed the rehearsal which was such a blessing! She took charge and made sure we all knew where we needed to be- and if you knew my bridal party was very much needed and appreciated! She allowed us to have unlimited phone calls/emails/in person emails. She also drove down to see me and the venue on multiple occasions which was amazing! Her team on the day of was also incredible! They kept us on time without being pushy or overwhelming. They worked so well with the venue and vendor staff as well. My wedding day would NOT have been the same without her. Thank you Mary!!

Christy Joy was our wedding coordinator and words cannot describe just how awesome she was! Because of my wife's occupation, I, the groom, had to take on the task of getting as much of the wedding planned, which was very scary and overwhelming for me. I was literally pulling my hair out, to say the least. Then I found Christy Joy through Thumbtack and what a godsend she was! She took the "bull by the horns" and basically took charge of everything for my fiance, now wife, and I. She supplied EVERYTHING we needed for our wedding ceremony and reception (table clothes, chair covers, center pieces, etc) all at no cost to us! Basically I paid her for only her time that she invested, which was very reasonable! I would and will recommend Christy Joy to anyone who is planning an event; and it does not have to be just a wedding, literally any event! If you want the best of the best...then Christy Joy is your gal! If you want a person that truly cares about you and making your event the best...then Christy Joy is your "go to person"! Kudos to Christy!...We will be forever grateful to her and she will be a part of our wedding day memories forever!

Sangeeta assisted with specific assignments for our daughters' wedding that we agreed upon in our contract stages and she executed them perfectly. She was trusted with all our valuables on the wedding day and she made sure we came back home with nothing lost. Sangeeta interacted effectively with all our various vendors, including the wedding coordinator, photographer/videographer, and the wedding decor company. I am sure that her charisma, organizational and people skills will prove to be a valuable asset to all events. Most importantly, she was also the bride's companion for the Sangeet and wedding day events and Sangeeta made sure the bride had everything she needed to remain calm and comfortable on the most important day of her life. Thank you, Sangeeta and wish you much success in you event planning career!

I worked with Gloria as my day of coordinator for my wedding on June 23rd, 2018 and it was truly an amazing experience! In the months leading up to the wedding I met with her 2-3 times and each time she helped me to ensure everything was thought of for the day of. She mentioned things that I never would have thought of had it not been for her. The day of the wedding she handled everything from vendors to the walk down the isle and everything else flawlessly! My husband and I were able to fully enjoy our special day with our family and friends without any worries. I highly recommend Gloria and her team. And if I have any other events come up I would hire her again in a heartbeat!

Nicole was the "day of" wedding planner for my daughter's wedding in Estes Park. We live out of state and were planning the wedding long distance. Nicole was incredibly responsive to our needs and delightful to work with. She met with us when we traveled to Estes Park for the final plans, answered every email inquiry timely, appeared early in the morning on the day of the wedding, decorated the outdoor ceremony area and the indoor reception area. She was thorough, talented at decor, efficient, unobtrusive, cheerful, patient and CALM. During the planning sessions she was encouraging and reassuring and (thank goodness) mentioned details we had not yet considered! She listened to my daughter's independent ideas about highlighting wildlife and nature, and then suggested ideas and decor that were perfect! She worked with the D.J. and kept the reception events right on schedule. At the end of the evening, even after a very long day, she packed up the decorations from the reception area and delivered them to our cabin the next morning while we were having the "farewell brunch". Most of our guests were surprised that we had a wedding coordinator present, because she was so professional, she blended in and coordinated everything seamlessly. Although we only booked her for "day of" Nicole went above and beyond and her services far exceeded her cost. If you are planning a wedding, save yourself worry and anxiety and choose Nicole and The Perfect Touch!

My daughter lives in Florida and wanted to get married in her home state of Colorado. I found Trenda with Unique Moments Event Planning on Thumbtack. Trenda was easily accessible and very professional. She met with me immediately. She did not impose her ideas on us and willingly listened to and incorporated our ideas and theme. She had great ideas to make our wants and needs better. She handled all of the coordination with the venue and vendors with ease and accomplishment. I would highly recommend Trenda for all your wedding needs.

Amanda was AWESOME. I didn’t have to worry about a thing having her there on my wedding day! We had a couple things change a day before or day of and she still didn’t forget and made sure everything went smoothly! She was extremely professional and helped with SO much! I would recommend Amanda to literally EVERY bride. She went above and beyond and it took a lot of stress of my shoulders! Even though some people don’t think they need a coordinator, it was worth every penny to be able to sit back and relax while someone else made sure the timeline was being followed, the reception/ceremony site were completely set up and taken down, trouble shooting vendors (we did have a couple hiccups & I promise you will too), as well as checking on us and making sure we had everything we needed!

Mariah was amazing to work with! For her “day of” services, she made sure to be available for all the finalizing that goes on before the wedding. Her attention to detail was spot on, and her priority was what made us, the bride and groom, happy. She even met with us after the wedding to get feedback on, not only herself, but what we thought of our other vendors, in order to gain further industry knowledge for her future clients. I definitely recommend her services!

TeNeil exceeded our expectations! From the beginning, she made it clear that she would take care of us and our wedding. She asked what my biggest worries were so that she could help mitigate them. One of those worries being my mom. We don’t have the best relationship and TeNeil was able to field all of my mom’s questions and handle her in a polite and friendly manner, making my mom feel special while making sure I wasn’t bothered. It was extremely reassuring to know that, whatever it was, TeNeil had it handled! We told her our vision and she made sure it all came together perfectly! Our wedding was seriously exactly how we wanted it - it was beautiful. We had a large wedding of over 150 guests and a lot of moving parts (she flipped spaces twice in a matter of two hours!). When we booked her, TeNeil’s price was half that of other comparable day-of wedding planners but she definitely did just as much, if not more work, than a more expensive planner. I would recommend TeNeil to anyone getting married or having s large event! She is a pro at what she does, instills confidence in her clients, delivers, and exceeds expectations! I wish I had more photos from our wedding to share, but I was so busy enjoying our wedding that I didn’t take many.... and we haven’t gotten our photos back from our photographer yet. :)

Jonathan was willing to work with my needs on my budget, which saved my wedding day because finding a reasonable decorator in the area was near impossible. He met with me a few times prior to the big day to ensure he understood what I wanted done. Due to the uniqueness of my situation I paid cash up front for his services, which at the time I was skeptical of, but now I would do it again any day. Jonathan went above and beyond what I needed done; when I walked into my reception hall it looks absolutely perfect! Everything went seemlessly I couldn't have dreamt of a better situation! I would highly recommend Highlights Colorado to anyone.

I worked with Jodi planning my wedding at the Clock Tower, and I was so glad that I hired her. From the start she was very attantive and made me feel at ease. Her knowledge if the industry, and the friends she has made searching for vendors a breeze. She had the connections, and provided me with a list of amazing companies to choose from. I didn't have to research and make a gillizion calls, she already done that. And being that she already had working relationships with everyone I used, I felt so assured and didn't have to worry about a thing!

By coincidence, I just happened to have attended 2 parties coordinated by In The Event and Elyse Boule. Both parties were PHENOMENAL! What made them so special? The attention to detail with the planning, the food, the drinks, the decor, the entertainment and the overall vibe. Elyse truly has a knack for understanding what the client loves, what they don't love, and how to make it a memorable experience. The first party was an outdoor graduation party at a private residence (~60 people); the second was an indoor Kentucky Derby Party at a private residence (~30 people). First, the person being honored at the outdoor graduation party loves Cajun food so Elyse arranged for a New Orleans Food Truck to serve up New Orleans cuisine for all the guests right on location (absolutely delicious AND smart - no kitchen clean-up for the host!). She worked with the food truck to design a menu that was adult and kid-friendly. She obtained all the necessary permits for a food truck to stay parked in the neighborhood. She hired a bartender who specializes in making southern-style cocktails (also delicious and smart - no one had to serve themselves). Not only did she arrange the food truck and bartender, she also found a New Orleans-style jazz band to provide entertainment for all the guests. It was a blast! I truly felt like I was on Bourbon Street that night! She mastered the New Orleans theme, just what the client wanted. It was perfect, despite a freak rain storm. Of course, she planned for that too and had already had a tent and heaters out. I did not expect this at a house party. I was expecting a sandwich tray-white sheet cake and balloons graduation party snooze-fest. NOT A CHANCE! Everyone had a blast, no one batted an eye despite the short burst of bad weather and all the guests, including the band, kept on rockin'. The second party was a Kentucky Derby party (indoor). She coordinated a "Best Derby Hat" contest for the ladies and kids, and provided cute prizes for the winners. The food was all Kentucky-inspired, as were the drinks. Each drink glass (in mason jars - perfect!) were labeled with a horse's number so that drinks wouldn't get mixed up. Similar to the first party I attended, it was so clear that this girl pays close attention to the clients' needs/wants and her attention to detail is impeccable. (I hear that she will be planning a wedding for a client soon, and I want to go just for the party even thought I don't know the bride and groom.) There is no doubt in my mind who I will use when I throw my next party, whether it's big or small. I am so glad I found her - you will too!!! Thank you In The Event and Elyse!!! You make parties truly unforgettable.

I had the pleasure of working with Caitlin as my day-of wedding coordinator and she was AWESOME! She took the time to really understand my vision for the day and executed it perfectly, from setting up the decorations to coordinating our wedding party and family. Her insights and experience in the event planning industry made her a great support system when it came to navigating some of the trickier last-minute details with vendors, the DJ, etc. Aside from being very friendly, creative, detail-oriented and organized, Caitlin will do her best to put all of your worries at ease when it comes to planning your special day - whatever that may be!

    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.
