Dade County Food Group was extremely easy to work with leading up to my event, planning my menu and doing a pre event visit. The day of their staff was punctual, extremely helpful, were one step ahead of me every step of the way. The food was exactly what I was looking for for my event and the guests had great things to say. I will definitely be using them again as well as recommending to my tenants on campus.

David and his team provided a full catering service and rentals for my wedding in Fort Lauderdale (which I planned from overseas). Everything was OUSTANDING!! From the very beginning David was amazing on the phone and by email as we planned the event; not only that he adjusted to my budget but he also gave me many options and recommendations in terms of the food, rentals and logistics for my special day. On the wedding day everything was on time, exactly as offered/agreed, the food was delicious and the tables looked perfect! After the ceremony, we had a cocktail hour with AMAZING canapes (I'd like to share that David and his wife made sure that my husband and I had a special tray so we could enjoy the canapes whilst taking the pictures - a lovely gesture!). After that we offered lunch where everything was delicious, and by the end of the event we had more casual food that was passed on a "mini street-food" presentation. Being a multicultural wedding, it was amazing working with David and his team as they completely understood and pleased our needs. Tasty Creations is a professional company, it is a reliable and excellent option for exquisite food (and for many other requirements) to create an impeccable event! 100% Recommended. Thanks guys!

We had a very good experience. We have been together for 17 years. We wanted to get married but not have a grand ceremony. All we wanted was something small and memorable. I wanted someone that was not super expensive and that spoke both Spanish and English. Someone that looked the part and made our ceremony feel real (lol) And trust me when I say that Damaris made it feel complete. Damaris was easy to get in touch with. She answered promptly and the payment went without a flaw. Her Spanish and English are both excellent. Clear and she recites well. Slow, clear, and with focus where needed it. After paying the deposit she sent me sample scripts. We fully customize ours. We didn't do a ring ceremony, or sand, or unity candles. Ours was simple made of words that my dad, a writer, wrote for us. Since we wanted all attention on what was being said I wanted someone that can delivered them properly. Damaris did an excellent job. She was a few minutes later than expected but traffic in Miami is unpredictable at times. She apologized, never lost her composure and had a glass of wine with us. She didn't rush us or the event. My husband, me and our families loved it. We highly recommend her. With her positive attitude, professionalism, easy access through email, text and phone she was amazing to work with. Damaris we wish you the best of luck. Thank you so very much.

So glad to have found Evelin. I had submitted a last minute request for balloon decor. Evelin replied promotly. She was so responsive and gave options to figure out what would be the best for the event. I was the event planner for the event co-oridnating from Dallas, so it required constant calls but she patiently answered all my questions and worked with me effortlessly. She is absolutely perfect! Thanks Evelin!

She decorated our backyard so beautifully, I hardly recognized it. She is truly talented at her job and cares so much about her clients. She will always go the extra mile. Absolutely recommend her service for your event.

Aynsley from Palm Trees to Peonies is amazing! She is a natural when it comes to planning events. After a few quick discussions and some sample photo ideas, Aynsley quickly understood my vision for my baby shower. My husband and I wanted a backyard, simple and rustic, yet beautiful and romantic baby shower to celebrate our baby girl.  Friends and family (young, old, man, woman) all felt comfortable and welcome. We had such an amazing day - we have memories and gorgeous photos to cherish for a lifetime. Aynsley transformed our backyard on a very reasonable budget. Fresh flowers, vintage linens, antique furniture, savory and sweet morsels and delicious drinks, all made our backyard absolutely inviting to everyone and a  gorgeous setting for a celebration. I cannot praise Palm Trees to Peonies enough!  ❤

Diana and her team where an absolute pleasure to work with. It is very hard to find some who quickly responds to questions, concerns and anything else that could arise. She not only responded swiftly but responded with all the answers and how to make adjustments to provide the prefect wedding on our budget. Thank you Villa Lucia Events for everything!

Had a 50th birthday party and it was a 70th theme and he was a night to remember because Social Butterfly Events, (SBE) brought my vision to light. The one thing I requested was a dessert bar and I must tell you the cupcakes came in different flavors and I fell over with the banana pudding and red velvet cupcakes. I have used (SBE) 4 times...and this is definitely my go to Event Planner for sure.

Keith was an absolutely amazing asset and essential part of our ceremony. He was thorough, thoughtful, and incredibly well organized. Not only was he helpful in the planning and discussions leading up to our wedding, his presence and demeanor day of and throughout the ceremony was nothing short of perfect. Keith is a very versatile and professional individual. He can be serious and professional, while also being the life of the event and humorous when the time is right. Our wedding would not have been the same without him. I would highly recommend Keith's services to anyone looking to fill such an integral role in their ceremony. With much love and respect to Keith, thank you! Tim & Kelsey Lucas

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.
