Vivian was amazing to work with on 10-17. Even after having gotten into a car accident on the way to the event, she was there on time and very friendly! As a wedding coordinator, this is a trait I value and seek in any other professionals I work with and will certainly be recommending her to future clients

Sandy and her team are dream to work with. From the beginning she was a angel to work with. She kept our budget in mind and made a payment plan that we could work with. When 15 more people RSVPd to my wedding after the contract was made she somehow made it work without going over our budget. And at the wedding the crew was phenomenal, very friendly and helpful. The food is incredible so many people complimented the food, and said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. She brought extra food and we even had leftovers after people had seconds and thirds. Her team also helped clean up our venue for us so we would get our deposit back. From start to finish I knew I could count on her to make sure everything was perfect and it was. Thank You Sandy:)

Dawn provided her event planning services for our wedding in 2015 on Clearwater Beach. She made our entire event run flawlessly without a glitch! I felt confident and comfortable handing over all the planning details to Dawn. She is always pleasant, fun, very reliable, and easy to work with. She has wonderful ideas, and she is extremely helpful and efficient. I highly recommend Epic Events for all of your event needs! I will definitely be using Dawn to plan future events.

I am very thankful that I found Audra in Thumbtack when I was looking for wedding planner/catering beginning of this year. I visited a couple of venues and sent inquiries but only Audra of Always Special Events replied quickly and with very clear offerings of what she can do for my wedding within my limited budget. She just took it upon herself, just like what she said that she is there for me not to get stress planning for my special day. The wedding went well and more than what I expected. I was very pleased of the whole color theme decoration from the extra chair sash to the small details of salt and pepper in the table. Guests were very please on how attentive Audra and Sarah to their needs. To top it all foods were excellent!!! Strongly recommending Audra and not just her wedding services but for any type of parties you will have in the future!!! Dave and I love her!!!

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!!

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 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!

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.
