Bess did cakes for my bridal shower & my wedding. I had a very specific image in my head of what I wanted my wedding cake to look like. In fact, it was one of the most important things to me when planning my wedding. Not only did Bess make me a desirable wedding cake, she made me the cake of my dreams (with little to no direction I might add). Not only did it look amazing it was absolutely delicious! I highly reccomend the salted caramel pretzel. She's down to earth and handles everything with ease. If you don't hire her for your next event you're truly missing out!

Katie was very amazing at my wedding last November. We spoke about what my vision was and she made sure it happened. I was left to enjoy my wedding with no worries and faith she had everything taken cared of. Thank you Katie for making mine and my husbands wedding day so flawless!

I hosted my sisters bridal/bachelorette party at my friends home. Jenn, was on time and the food was a hit. She stayed to help with the clean up and was friendly with the guest. Everyone enjoyed the meal and asked for 3rds & 4ths. I would hire her again!

My husband and I hired Cat to be our 'day of' coordinator for our wedding thinking it was just going to be that day. She went above and beyond from coming to food tasting and linen meetings to having everything set up in the bridal suite the day off. Service was impeccable! She made sure everyone was taken care of, and took our vision and brought it to life in a way we didn't have envisioned. She also did all the florals for the wedding and they were AMAZING! The parents, guests and vendors were completing on how wonderful and refreshing it was to work with someone like her. We will certainly be working with her again during other life events! Best decision we made in our entire wedding process!

Outstanding! We hired Matt to cater our small backyard wedding and he and his team exceeded all of our expectations. We were won over by Matt upon our first meeting, due to his genuine enthusiasm for great food. We discussed our desire to have a “tapas” style reception dinner of small plates of fabulous food with a wide variety of choices. He listened carefully to our preferences, and created an amazing menu that included different food stations for grilled petite filet mignon, soy maple glazed salmon, and peach marsala chicken – all delicious! There was a separate table dedicated to an assortment of salads and vegetable sides. Upon arrival to our event, our guests were greeted with a beautifully displayed charcuterie table from which to snack. After our ceremony, hors d’oeuvres were passed by his friendly staff while pictures were taken and we visited with our guests (shrimp martinis and beef sliders with bacon onion jam anyone?!). In addition to delicious food and incredible service, Matt also coordinated all of the rental equipment and provided design consulting for dining tent set up and table settings. He is truly an artist that is not only passionate about the food that he so meticulously prepares, but also the look and feel of the entire event. We could not be more pleased with his work, and we highly recommend Matt Haney for your next celebration! Cheers, Cynthia & Matthew Howland

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.
