Sunshine Weddings, LLC (Bill & Karen) were my all-star wedding team! They were an incredible team and worked together and with me to provide my wedding with SEAMLESS day-of coordination (Karen) and Bill served as our wedding officiant/minister. After the ceremony, Bill continued to work through the night with Karen to provide 5+ star service as coordinators for the night of our wedding. I feel truly blessed to have found these two amazing individuals on Thumbtack, to have met them, and have them as a part of our big day. Bill and Karen kept me on track not only on the actual wedding day, but also in the months, weeks and days leading up to the wedding. Wedding planning is a lot of work, and I seriously could not have had a successful wedding without them. They are very easy to talk to, willing to accept input and will bend over backwards to make your vision come to life. They were extremely easy to contact via Thumbtack, email and phone. They are very friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and made me feel like family but maintained a level of professionalism that was unsurpassed by all others I hired on the day of our wedding. They stayed focused on the day-of timeline and itinerary and coached me through the day so that I did not have to worry. I cannot speak enough good things about them, but hope this review gives a glimpse of the amaziness of these two individuals. To sum it all up... they are BEYOND OUTSTANDING. If you read this review and are considering hiring Bill as your wedding officiant, please do yourself a favor and hire him. You will thank yourself later.

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!

Rebecca transcribed a wedding script in a leather bound journal for me in a rush to have in time for the wedding I officiated. It came out so beautiful that I gave it to the bride and groom as a gift. Great work, responsive with an incredibly quick turnaround.

The food was outstanding! All of the guests at our wedding were very pleased and we heard no complaints. The staff was very professional. We were a little disappointed at how quickly they packed up and left. We were also a little disappointed that they didn't leave any food for us to have a plate after everyone was gone as we, the bride and groom, were to busy with our guests to really get a chance to eat. I would definitely recommend Char-Don Catering to anyone and would definitely use them again for any other event!!!

Weddings to Desire

Desiree was absolutely amazing! I was planning my wedding from out of state and don’t know what I would have done without Desiree! Desiree was in constant contact with me throughout the entire planning process, she offered her ideas and opinions like a friend, she handled communication with my vendors and thought of many details that I overlooked or didn’t even think of. The weeks leading up to the wedding were so hectic for me and Desiree was the one who kept everything organized, and made sure every single detail was perfectly aligned with my vision for our wedding day. Desiree worked tirelessly the day before and the day of, even noticing that I forgot to bring certain items and running out to purchase them rather than adding stress to my day. I honestly can’t put into words how thankful I am that I was fortunate enough to find Desiree on Thumbtack, I know my wedding would have been complete chaos without her kindness, professionalism and extreme attention to detail. Hiring Desiree was by far the best decision I made in my wedding planning process; anyone who hires her is super lucky to have found this gem, truly she is amazing!

Amber and Ryan put together a wonderful wedding for us on our restrictive budget. The ceremony was beautiful, memorable and tailored perfectly to fit our personalities and style as a couple. They're both very professional and easy to deal with. I definitely want Arclight weddings at the helm again for my 2nd marriage..... I'm kidding we're still together and plan to be forever (probably). I highly recommend them!

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!

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.
