DJ Don went above and beyond our expectations! He met us at the venue the day before the event to make sure he knew the space, the plan for the evening, and what to bring. He arrived on time the day of, was dressed very appropriately for our event, and remained professional throughout the evening. He gave us a worksheet to complete with music likes/dislikes so there was no confusion about what we expected. He also brought a really cool background light set up that made the dance area! Overall, we were pleased and would hire DJ Don again!

My wife and I booked Robin for our New Years Eve wedding several months ago and could not have been more happy with our choice. Robin went over and beyond with anything that was asked of her. There was a huge last minute issue with our event space for the reception and she improvised to make sure all the food was ready and hot when everyone showed up. She was the first caterer to respond to my email inquiry. Most of the other caterers took several days to get back to me and she only took several hours. She was so flexible with us because we had to change up our menu several times and this never even fazed her in the least bit. She always had solutions to our problems that would come up and never became frustrated. Oh by the way..... her food is amazing. All of our guests, which is around 150 people, loved her food. She did the rehearsal dinner and the reception and they were both amazing. Her pricing was fair and we never felt like we were being jerked around. If you have the chance then I say book Robins Nest. You will not regret it.

    Ms. Nardozzi's photographic experience and expertise truly shined in my photos. Graduation was a huge importance to me and she perfectly captured my happiness and excitement in every photo. Ms. Nardozzi is reasonably priced, knowledgeable, and maintains a great awareness of the surroundings during a session to capture the perfect photo for any occasion. Definitely recommend for graduation, birthday, baby, and special event photos.

    Mae's Southern Delights were Awesome! They provided GREAT food, excellent customer service and satisfaction. The "Duck Tacos" with the cranberry coleslaw was one of my favorites and the barbecue ribs were my husband's favorite. We both recommend Mae's Southern Delights for your next event.

    Mr Simmons was very punctual, very easy to work with, and very professional. He communicates very well before the event to make sure he obtained all of the necessary details and purchased equipment to make sure he could meet every requirement. Book him with the confidence of know that he will do what it takes to make your event a success.

    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. 

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
