Wow! That's what Destiny clearly brings to a wedding! She does a 15 minute consultation AND a huge discount for Thumbtack clients (as of this review) which I really appreciate and makes the process that much better. We haven't started planning my wedding yet, but her site is clean and examples of her work are lovely! In comparison to other wedding planners I've researched this is not something I could do on my own! I vibed with her passion, responsiveness, artistry, professionalism, personality, and understanding for over the top-ness!

After a year of planning and the wedding quickly approaching, boy did we start feeling the pressure! We wanted to hire a wedding coordinator just for the "day of" but weren't quite sure our budget would allow it. We carefully thought it through and decided we really needed someone and began our search. We found Susan with What Really Matters, Inc. and it was a wonderful experience! She was so much more than a "day of coordinator!" She helped us so much with her creative ideas and caring attitude and started as soon as we contacted her! Not just on our wedding day! We are so happy we found her and can't thank her enough for making our special day so amazing!

Jo did an amazing job with the flowers for our nautical themed wedding! She already had some ideas and pictures to offer before we spoke and she took my ideas and photos and created some beautiful displays! She's very easy to work with for a very reasonable price!!

My wife and I had a really great experience with our wedding. They were very responsive and were always on time for our phone consultations. My fiancé was a bit of a bridezilla but Coffee Garden helped keep her focused and the flowers turned out stunning! They also do event planning, so 6 months later we decided to use them for my parents' 25th wedding anniversary party. We had 150 people and they made kept everything exactly on point. Both times were a wonderful experience and we'll definitely use them again for our next big family event.

I use the services of Jackson-Coley production and events to coordinate my wedding reception. And, Valencia outdid herself. My colors were black and white with just a little touch of red. I had black and white ostrich feathers in tall splendor vases that had a light on the bottom of the vase that was centered on mirrors with red rose pedals tossed on top of the mirrors. It was gorgeous. The tables were covered with black table cloths and white toppers. Valencia worked within my budget and kept me informed every step of the way. She was extremely professional and always delivered on time. I would highly recommend her services to bring a touch of class to any event large or small. She comes as your event planner and leaves as your friend.

Shawn catered my daughter's wedding in St. Augustine for 75 guest. Shawn and his team showed up early, helped set up the wedding and they stayed until everyone was fed and happy. Shawn delivered the entire menu just as we picked and it was superb. All the food was hot and ready when we sat down to eat. They took care of all the set up, serving, taking down and cleaning. the food and service was top quality and we would use Shawn again for any and every event. Shawn helped make our daughter's big day a great success. I would highly recommend Shawn and Ultimate Rentals & Catering for your special occasions. Thanks again Shawn!!!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about A Friend Affair Event Planning. My fiance and I got engaged September 2013, set our wedding date on Christmas Eve (when I found my dream venue), and hired A Friend Affair a few shorts weeks later for our April 2014 wedding. We had three short months to plan our wedding and couldn't have pulled it off without A Friend Affair. I wouldn't have been able to sit back and enjoy the day if I didn't have Hannah as my wedding planner. Our day was absolutely perfect and felt like a dream thanks to her. She is incredibly professional, talented, creative, super sweet, attentive, organized, and took care of every little detail I would have never even thought to do. I could go on and on about how amazing she is! I don't know what I would have done without all of her help. She is THE BEST and I'm so thankful we hired her.

I hired Mimi & Val Events to plan my Wedidng and provide all decor. I was blown away by their service. Myriam, the planner and Decor Coordinator asked what my vision was, and over-delivered. She was with me step by step, helping me get everything off my to-do list knocked off. She also finished all decor a month before my wedding! She works hard at her craft, and ensures you get nothing but the best! She is not cheap!! She got me the most beautiful faux silk flowers and more. I really did feel like royalty at the end of my wedding. I am so glad I chose to go with this vendor. My wedding day was pure bliss and I have zero complaints!

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!!!!

Rebekkah SAVED me at my wedding. She went out of her way multiple times for me on my wedding day.. She helped me with my makeup last minute because my makeup lady was a disaster, and Rebekkah turned me into a masterpiece! I couldn't thank her enough. She was such a wonderful help to have at my wedding and everything went smoothly because of her. I can honestly say she went above and beyond my expectations. I would recommend her to EVERYONE! She is the BEST.

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.
