I was so close to giving up on finding a catering company that could meet my needs without draining my wallet for every little thing until I met with Sandy. She was familiar with my venue & knew Weddings from A-Z. The food tasting was delish & I'm so happy & confident that my wedding day is going to be fabulous because of Sandy. I cannot thank her enough for making my dream a reality :)

Doug and I were very impressed with the attention to detail that Audra showed. Our Wedding Reception was by far one of the most beautiful experiences we've had. She coordinated the entire evening with the caterer and band. She turned an ordinary looking room into a jaw dropping site! Everyone raved on what a great job Audra did with decorating and planning our entire reception. There is no way we could have done this without her. We would highly recommend Audra to anyone planning a wedding or event. She is very high energy and worked long hours to give us the look we wanted for our reception. Audra, we thank you so very very much for making our Special Day an amazing success!!

Lisa was an absolute god send. I hired her at the last minute to do day of coordination for my wedding. She was amazingly patient with me and allowed me to ask any questions I had. She came in and did all of the decorations above and beyond what I even imagined. She also stayed late and helped to clean up and dropped everything off with my family as I had to leave for my honeymoon early the next morning. If you’re even wondering about whether or not to hire Lisa, just do it. She’s amazing and will make your wedding everything you hoped and dreamed for. Thank you so much for everything Lisa!!

She has been great to work with so far. She allows you to create your vision and provides her own creative suggestions to assist you but is so respectful of it being your big day. After meeting with Sarah, I feel comfortable booking her as a decorator and know I can trust her and the work she creates. Also very professional. Would definitely recommend and will do another review after the wedding.

I called to follow up with the quote I received on thumbtack. They confirmed the price that was quoted to me and stayed true to it. Wes handled everything promptly and sent me the confirmation as we were still on the phone for the day of service (our wedding). We have not used the service yet but I am very impressed with the scheduling process. Very professional gentleman. Really made me feel like I was their only customer.

I went to Pat to ask her about decorating for my wedding. I informed her of the day, time, and place and she was willing to take me on as a client. My wedding was July 2014, and at 1st I was worried because she notified me that she had a Mary Kay engagement that same weekend as my wedding date. Pat made me feel as though she had nothing else on her agenda. She took the time to go over every detail for my day. She truly went above and beyond. She was so professional, she was making my floral arrangements up to the very last minute. Nothing was left undone, and I was very satisfied.

I hired Ikonic Event Planning to plan my entire wedding. I could not have been more pleased with my decision! I told Sarah that I wanted my wedding to have a "police theme" (my husband is a patrol officer); she listened very carefully to my ideas and vision of what I wanted my Wedding to be, and then brought the whole thing to full and complete fruition! I wanted an elegant yet fun event, and that is precisely what I got. The venue I chose was outdoors (basically a "field" by the water), and Sarah used her creativity and artistic talent to turn the space into everything I envisioned, and more. Sarah thought of every minute detail, and the police theme was tastefully incorporated throughout. She hand-made many of the decorations. She kept me sane lol. All the other vendors enjoyed working with her; they actually made comments to me about how fantastic she is with her professionalism and attention to timing and detail. (I picked the vendors, but Sarah did the leg work by researching several options for me to choose from.) As it turned out, the music, cake, food, and ambiance blended so perfectly, that many of my guests commented that my wedding was the "best they've ever been to." And major bonus - I was working with a modest budget, and we even came in UNDER budget! Brides, look no further, you will be in great hands with Ikonic!

Nicole is the best. There’s a lot of work that goes into planning a wedding. Too much. You may get stressed and worried that your special day won’t be all that you imagined. Having Nicole as our wedding planner/ day of coordinator put our minds at ease and we were able to truly enjoy our day and the whole process. She’s kind, organized, and you can really tell that weddings and all things “love” are her thing. There were some things that I’d do differently looking back on our wedding, but hiring Nicole is definitely not one of them.

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.
