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.

Contracted Chef Tony to cater our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Asked him to come to our home approximately a month before the scheduled date to let us know what he had available and how he would prepare for the party. He was on time (if not early) and had all his information available. We explained what we would like, he provided assistance and recommendations and outlined all the expected expenses. He later provided me with an itemized list of what we had settled on and the costs. He did not try to up-sell us on more expensive items or provide trade-offs, etc. The day of the party he, and his staff, arrived approximately two hours early to set up and prepare last minute items. He, and his staff, were very efficient and helpful. The food was wonderful and the party went off without a hitch. During the party they circulated through the guests providing hors d'oeuvres and drinks. About 15 minutes before the stated "end of the party" he found me to let me know he would be starting the cleanup process. He and his staff were again very efficient, cleaned up the entire area, put all excess food away, packed and left. I would not hesitate to contract Chef Tony again for any future event. I had many compliments throughout the evening about the food and staff and have, and will be referring Chef Tony to others looking to do something similar or involving catered functions.

Michelle assisted me with decorating my ceremony site, and officiating my wedding. She was extremely helpful when it came to finding other vendors such as a photographer. Michelle even sent me multiple vow examples. I felt that she knew exactly what I envisioned for my ceremony and was confident that anything she came up with would be perfect. I highly recommend Michelle to anyone who is planning any event.

Pascale had a wealth of ideas for our event. Her wonderful sense of décor allows her to see all of the possibilities to transform a space into something truly amazing! She also sees the potential of the simplest objects to transform them into mini works of art! They go beautifully with the theme of the event. I've seen her work unfold twice now and the results have been absolutely FANTASTIC!

Annette Hemphill is a top-notch event planner! I have most recently attended a Superbowl party that she hosted. The food, decorations, and drinks were all fabulous! She even dressed up to match the theme of the party! She takes careful note of the little details that make the party POP. She spends so much time before the event, to make sure all the details are planned out, that she is able to enjoy the event herself! She has an electric personality that makes people feel wanted and welcome!! I would definitely trust any event I was planning, big or small, to Annette and An Affair of Excellence!

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.
