Chef Thomas did an excellent job. This was a 58th wedding anniversary dinner for my wife and I and we enjoyed it thoroughly. The food was excellent and it was prepared imaginatively. Thomas was likable and efficient. A wonderful fine dining experience.

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 not only an incredible florist, she is also an experienced Wedding/Event Coordinator. She knows everything that goes into an event, and she's prepared for anything. She listened carefully to our daughter's vision and made it come to life. (Our daughter has NO knowledge of flowers...just knew the look she wanted.) Karen made the BIG DAY completely easy for us.

Mary is an incredible wedding and party planner. She helped my sister plan her wedding, and also planned a graduation party for me. She is kind, considerate, and makes you feel like you are the most important person in the room. I would highly suggest her for any event! She comes in to make your vision a reality and to truly serve you! She is an incredible planner!

We had a relatively small wedding (70 people) and I was worried that the party atmosphere of the wedding would be a dud but Matt was amazing and made sure everyone had a great time. He accommodated just about all of our requests, and when people began to tire out he moved to slower music which got a fresh batch of dancers on the floor. I had guests and the people working at the venue say that our wedding was the most fun wedding event they had experienced all summer and that they had not seen so many people filling up the dance floor and having fun! I could not have picked a better DJ, thanks Matt!

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!

Planning a wedding or event or need on-site event coordination? Call Lata at Invogue Events! Lata helped with on-site coordination for my daughter's Sangeet, Wedding and Reception. She was very professional and made sure that everything was on schedule. We were able to enjoy all the events, knowing that Lata was taking care of everything behind the scenes. Her follow-up skills and attention to detail is exceptional. You can tell she really enjoys what she does. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of an event planner/on-site event coordinator. Being an artist herself her creativity is an added bonus, and she doesn’t let the clock dictate her working hours. She will do whatever it takes to oversee that the job is done to perfection.

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! We had to hire her last minute and she was able to make herself available even with a mountain location and far commute. She helped us with almost every detail of our wedding day and worked incredibly well with our venue staff. We were adamant about having our dogs as part of our ceremony and she even drove the dogs to our dog sitters house immediately after the wedding so we didn't have to have someone attending the wedding do it. We had some last minute additions and subtractions and she was prepared for every change and obstacle we threw at her. Our day was perfection and we owe a lot of that to Amanda. Thank you!

    There is no better decision I made for my wedding than to hire Bliss Elevated. Julie is the most organized, thorough, and thoughtful wedding planner I could have hoped for. And best of all, she saw my vision for my big day and was enthusiastic about it! She made it come to life! I did not have to worry about a single thing on my wedding day, and honestly, the weeks leading up to my wedding because of how much Julie did for us. She thought of things I had never even considered. Everything went off without a hitch thanks to her! It was the best day of my life, and I recommend every bride-to-be select Bliss Elevated for her big day if she wants everything to go beautifully.

    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.

    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. :)

    We can't say enough good things about Lindsay/Beyond the Décor. I must admit, that when I was first planning my wedding, I didn't think I needed a day-of-coordinator. Boy, am I glad Lindsay was there. She drove all the way to Silverthorne to join us for a venue meeting and the day of the wedding was flawless; all thanks to her. She's kind, professional and comes up with great ideas! Hire her, now :)

    Laurel served as day-of coordinator for our wedding. She was available and accessible before the wedding day for planning and brainstorming, and was prompt, professional, and detail-oriented on the wedding day, to help make our celebration a memorable event. I left all details in her care from start to finish, and didn't worry about a thing throughout the ceremony and reception. She has a knack for seeing the big picture while managing every task in a thoughtful and responsible way. When unexpected situations arose, Laurel made decisions in the moment without needing to consult us or interrupt our celebration--a confidence that I was so grateful for! She understood our hopes for our wedding, and helped to execute them flawlessly!

    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!

    Events by LaTasha created an stunning and memorable holiday party for my guests and I. During the consultation, I provided LaTasha with a few details of how I envisioned the evening would look. LaTasha listened carefully, and far exceeded my expectations in every category. She was very hands on, throughout the entire process, I didn't have to worry about a thing. She even had an extra surprise for my guest and I, by having an amazing vocalist to get us all in the holiday spirit. My guests raved about the party days later. I can't wait to plan my next holiday party with you LaTasha. Thank you.

    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.
