I found Nancy on Thumbtack a few days before our event, after our caterer stopped returning our phone calls. Nancy was very easy to work with, very prompt in response times and flexible in what we were looking for. It was a HUGE relief finding Nancy so close to the event! On the day of the event her staff showed up on time, (again) were flexible with what we were looking for and they had GREAT attitudes. The food was fantastic, and we were more than happy to give out our caterers information to anyone who asked. I would highly recommend Sparrow Kitchen to anyone looking for a professional, delicious, and easy to work with caterer.

Carla is the calm center of your event planning storm. She is organized, thinks of things you do not-and executes seamlessly. By the time you arrive at your own event, it is fun for you and it looks like you have put the thing together effortlessly-thanks to Carla! I cannot recommend her enough! Cathie Beck

Nicole was absolutely fabulous! I couldn't have asked for a better experience planning and executing a 200+ wedding. She was extremely organized, responsive, and positive through the whole experience. I never once felt stressed out as a bride because Nicole kept tabs on everything. Even when the occasional thing did not work out according to plan, Nicole was immediately on it and fixing the situation. I would highly recommend her for any one looking for a wedding planner and would gladly be used as a reference. Nicole was a true blessing through this whole process and I'm happy to also say I've gained another friend! EXCELLENT!

Princess helped out with a couple of events for the City of Fort Lupton. She was the DJ and really got the kids and adults moving. For a couple of weeks after the events people around town were still talking about how fun the events were. She has a great voice and tons of energy. We'll use her again!!!

Amanda met with us before our wedding to get a feel for what we were hoping our day would be like. She made sure to gather details we hadn't thought of yet and quickly afterwards sent us a detailed timeline of how the night would break down. She was there throughout the event, from set-up to tear-down and made sure our needs were taken care of! Highly recommend! Thanks Amanda!!!

Troy and crew did an excellent job with the party I had him cater! All of the food offerings were bright, fresh, and tasty. The staff was courteous, clean, and prepared. The presentations were wonderful and artistic...I would happily, and confidently, rehire them to do another catering event for me. Very professional, and attentive to special needs and details. Bravo!

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!

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!

Lauren helped me launch my art business, www.hideawayartandcraft.com! Without her attention to detail, my website would probably have remained an incomplete project. With only a few meetings, we nailed down what I wanted to showcase in the website, and she took it from there. It looks wonderful, and she is always available for me to ask questions when I update it. She is intuitive in her awareness of her clients' needs. I know that her expertise and patience is going to serve her as she serves small business owners. She also has valuable information about organizational needs, event planning, and so many other "nuggets." Lauren is a pleasure to work with. I recommend her highly to creatives like me who need help with tangible results.

    You always get 2 or more coordinators at your event. One to be with couple and their attendants as they get ready and one or more to set up your event and meet with your other vendors.

    My work stands out from other event planners because experience working with high-profile clients in corporate, non-profit and personal sectors. I understand working within specific budgets, executing small details that make a large impact and understanding the end-goal of the event experience.

    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.

    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 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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
