My name is Hazel , I had requested many inquiries for caterers for my upcoming wedding. First wonderful impression Brian gave was that he was the first to response. What I loved about him and his company as well, was that he offered customized food menus to go with my liking. :) I thought that was wonderful. Unfortunately, I was not able to book him due to the budget I have and I had to settle for a banquet hall. I loved how he was attentive, that when I had forgotten to contact him for 2 days he kindly contacted me. I will ALWAYS reserve his information if another occasion comes, and I would DEFINITELY recommend him to my family, friends, and any other people out there. Keep up the good work Brian! :) Very outstanding and attentive customer service.

Barbara was phenomenal when tending my wedding! We hired her for the wedding to bar tend and she did way more than that! Not only was she on time and she went out of her way, and did way more than hired to do. If you're considering hiring her for your event, you will make the best choice!!!!

We hired That Awesome Entertainment Co for our wedding planning and DJ services. Franco, the DJ, had everyone on their feet and truly kept the party alive. He was great to plan the song selection with, asked a lot of questions to make sure he knew what kind of mood we wanted to set. Jessica, the wedding planner helped prepare everything before the big day and was a huge lifesaver on the day of the wedding. All I wanted was a carefree day with no problems, and she made that come true. She coordinated with all of the vendors and made sure everything ran smoothly. They are the most easygoing, fun p eople to work with. Hire them, they are simply amazing!

I met Renee by referral, as I was planning a wedding for two dear friends. Her energy, and expertise were the perfect fit! As is the case with any formal affair, there were daily changes, and I'm sure I was making her crazy! However, she never waivered, and kept her focus and energy. The food was exceptional! We chose to have three themed 'food stations'... Asian, Latin, and Mediterranean. and it was an elegant white on white affair! The location was at the Brides' home, on the water, under a clear topped tent, with amazing lighting, and under a full moon! She also handled the creation of huge and stunning Ice Vases as centerpieces. Her attention to detail, and her follow up were critical, and she and her crew received a rousing applause from the wedding guests! I even managed to get her out of the kitchen and onto the dance floor, for "Because I'm Happy!" One additional note... I was not only the wedding planner, but I was also in the wedding party, so my nerves were on edge, being at the church, while things unfolded at the reception. We arrived in our limos to find everything moving right along as planned! Hope to work with her team again in the future. Everything was Absolutely Delish! Thank you, Renee!!

I have know Dali for some time now and from the moment we met we became friends. Not only do I value her as a friend, but I value her work ethic. Even before becoming engaged, I knew that Dali would be the only person that I would call to assist with my wedding, not just because she's my friend, but because of her dedication to her craft. She has an eye for events. She's listens and helps to create a beautiful moment. This weekend, I attended another friends wedding and OFCOURSE Dali was hired as the coordinator. I watched her create a stress free environment for the Bride and Groom on one of the most important days in their lives. Dali went above and beyond to ensure that NOTHING was missed! If you want the person that isn't in this business just for the money, then Dali is who you want to go with.

A little over a year ago we made our first and most important investment for our wedding and that was to hire Ana from Color Me Mine. We had a destination wedding in Florida and needed help bringing it all together. From the first time we spoke with Ana, her kindness and excitement for our wedding were refreshing. Ana took the time to listen to our ideas and presented her expertise and knowledge of wedding planning. Ana always made us feel as though she had everything 100% under control. That no challenge was too big for her to handle. We loved everything she came up with! Ana even visited us when she was up north in New Jersey, and was relentless on making sure our wedding was the best ever! She even helped bargaining to get us the best deals possible from our vendors!!! Ana worked with us on our wedding to finalize timelines, confirm vendors, run rehearsal, and of course bring it all together on our special day. The day of the wedding ran so smoothly. Ana had every little detail worked out, every person in place, every special moment captured, just perfect...We are forever grateful for her hard work, commitment, passion, and enthusiasm that she had for our wedding. She was super organized and we were not worried about a single thing the whole day & night! Ana is phenomenal! Words cannot express my gratitude for Ana. Our wedding was something out of a fairy tale. It was the PERFECT wedding and it's all because of Ana. We came to her with a simple idea and she worked her magic and brought it to life. We were incredibly lucky to have had her as our planner and we also very fortunate that we ended up with a new friend through this all. We would recommend her and trust her with anything. We would definitely recommend Ana of Color me Mine to any couple who needs someone that would understand their vision and work tirelessly to make that vision reality.

Mariane did a phenomenal job helping me plan my wedding. Her and her team didn't miss any single detail. She handled my venue and worked out with them the details A-Z just like how I explained to her in the early stages of the planning and it turned out exactly how I wanted from the room set up, the layout of the tables and dance floor the linen all the way to when exactly I wanted the doors to be opened. Every single detail was taken care of and everything matched and all the hand made pieces are so unique and beautiful. The center pieces, my gorgeous bouquet, carefully hand crafted boutonniere, all the ladies on my side had beautifully made bracelet corsage's(yes! She made those too!!!!)My gift box was even decorated with her own added touch. You will not find more of a detailed oriented wedding planner that will help u execute your perfect day! Mariane and her team made sure that everything went smoothly and the timeline was followed by all my vendors and hotel staff. She was so pleasant to work with, and she also has some amazing ideas if your completely lost like I was in the beginning. She is worth every penny, you will not be disappointed! Highly highly recommend tres chic! My day was perfect because of her. I still get so many compliments on how beautiful my wedding was. Thank you so much Mariane and your team for bringing to life my day the way I imagined it and more!!!

I was lucky enough to find Frankie to put together my absolute dream wedding! I don’t know how she did it but from start to finish I didn’t have to worry about a thing! Her knowledge and contacts were all professional and dependable! The venue was perfect for our small wedding. All of my guests raved about the delicious food and amazing cake! I actually was able to enjoy myself without worrying about a single thing! I highly recommend Frankie to anyone who is looking for an event coordinator. The photographer even custom made a video of the entire day so we can treasure it forever!!! Best experience ever!!!

Working with Crystall Ball Events was a wonderful experience. As someone who decided to plan her own wedding, it was crucial to count with reliable, professional, and understanding vendors, and this company exceeded my expectations. They delivered my bridal bouquet and the other accesories on the dot and they were so amazingly beautiful! Furthermore, they are so nice, patient and kind, that it felt so easy to talk to, and I immediately felt like I was in good hands. All in all, I will continue to work with them in any future events and I highly recommend them to anyone.

We had the wedding of a lifetime thanks to Sandy! Our glorious beach wedding took place on Fort Lauderdale beach where Sandy helped us to organize the wedding and was our wedding officiant. We couldn't have done it without her! Weddings can be fraught with stress, but Sandy helped to make ours wonderful. We worked closely with her on our wedding vows and the ceremony was perfect. I highly recommend Sandy for your event.

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.

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.
