These people are first rate!!! Honestly, I don't think we could have made it through the wedding without them. From months before the wedding, Bill was in touch frequently to make sure all was on track. He often brought up small details I never would have thought of, that made preparations for the wedding easier. Karen and Bill were more than generous with their time and talents. They met us at our outdoor wedding venue for a planning session that was invaluable. They were there for the rehearsal, and organized it beautifully. They were working hard the day of the wedding to meet all our vendors, and finish the decorations. Your special day will go well, with them on your side. By the way, this is the truth. I am not a friend or family member... just an extremely happy customer. Wendy F.

"Is the wedding planner your friend?" This is the best way I can convey how wonderful Paige of Forever Events was. Two guests asked me if Paige was my friend because of how well she managed our wedding day and how lovingly she took care of us throughout the day and evening. She's responsible, dependable and best of all enthusiastic. She is solutions-oriented and takes her timeline very seriously — two things we especially appreciate. Throughout the planning phase, Paige aligned us with vendors who would meet our needs and make our vision a reality including our caterer, DJ, officiant and makeup artist. She also suggested money-saving options. All in all, it was a pleasure to work with a professional with a heart.

Heather and her staff coordinated my wedding welcome dinner. We had a destination beach wedding and had only visited the area once before. Living 1900 miles away….all of our correspondence was via email, text and calls. She even offered to facetime. We wanted to do a welcome dinner for all of our 85 guests that were coming to the area as an extra thank you. We wanted mostly to highlight why we chose the area and Heather made it perfect. She used her knowledge and resources to prove that our destination was a true paradise! From suggestions, to working hand in hand with all staff and creating a menu with our caterer and us, to hiring bartenders and creating a custom bar, she handled every detail all while including us. We paid for this ourselves so we had a budget. She made sure that all of the food & even the drinks made it appear that we “went all out” when we really hadn’t! We had a 5 star event on a 3 star wallet. I cannot begin to tell you how many people talked more about that event than our actual reception (YIKES LOL). The thing I think that we loved the most is that she is fun! You never feel stressed. You never worry, you feel like you are truly being taken care of in a light hearted and trustworthy way! I felt like we had known her forever but never felt that she was unprofessional at any time, it was just flawlessly natural. Thumbtack is great but your search is over my friend! You have found your event planner at its finest. Have a blast because Heather won’t allow you not too. She is worth every red cent😊

Just hired Char-Don for our high school youth rally dinner. Event is next week. I'm guessing he'll knock it out of the park. Wish there were a way to add a review afterwards.

On my wedding day, Althea made me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world. Even during the consultation, she explained everything from the sanitation of brushes to why she used certain makeup! The pampering and laughs during the wedding day prep help ease my nervousness and allowed me to enjoy many special moments. Thank you Althea for making me not only feel beautiful, but also loved!!!!

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.

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.
