I hired Marcus to cater my daughter's wedding. Marcus and his team worked very hired and were very professional. He was always available to answer my questions. I feel that we received great quality of food for the price and everything was delicious. Several attendees of the wedding were very complimentary of the food. I would not hesitate to hire Marcus again for another event.

Nieva was outstanding! She went above and beyond to make sure we had the wedding night to remember. She came up with Hawaiian inspired drinks that were beautiful and equally tasteful. I will definitely work with her in the future and I recommend her to all. The best!

Lanette was wonderful! She has the nature and expertise as well as the work ethic that only translates to an awesome Wedding Coordinator!! She is sharp and keeps up with everything. As much information she can be included in (emails and meeting) allows her to have the comprehensive view of the event to do her best. I recommend her highly!!

Since my wedding is so far away, we have obviously not started doing anything, but during our first meeting, we clicked instantly! She had so many great ideas..not to mention she is the sweetest woman. I went ahead and put my deposit down because I knew instantly that I wanted her to not only be my florist but a crucial part in my wedding planning overall.

We used them for the month-of-coordination and it made that month and the wedding a breeze! They are fun and easy to work with and they truly want the bride and groom to have their dream wedding. They are very flexible when it comes to your location, pre-wedding meetings, and last minute changes. They work well with your vendors, officiants, and crazy family or friends as well. I wouldn't change a thing with our wedding and that's in part to these awesome wedding planners! Thanks for making our day great!

I hired Kori Nicole for a one day wedding coordination contract, but she provided so much more. From our initial meeting more than 30 days out, she has been intimately involved in the details of my wedding. Meeting with the vendors, being immediately accessible via phone text and email, and providing additional decorative suggestion as needed, she is everything I could have dreamed of in someone to help me make my wedding day the absolute perfection I dreamed of. Even my guests commented on how hard she worked the day of. My husband is especially grateful in that she ridded me of so much stress and anxiety and it was less for him to deal with, lol. I, for one after experiencing what she does first-hand, believes she is significantly under-priced, so if you can snag her, be sure to jump at it, because she is the best I've seen in this industry from years of seeing mediocre coordinators of weddings of friends and family. THANK YOU Kori Nicole, for such exceptional service and professionalism. We will definitely be seeing you at the next big event celebration :-).

Eric and I are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Tiana Chang and Oh So Pretti, LLC. I contacted Tiana at the very tail end of my trying to handle my own DIY wedding (she jumped right in as if she were family); Tiana and her team were extremely professional and provided quality customer service. She went above and beyond what I could have ever imagined, it’s because of Tiana and Oh So Pretti, LLC that we even had a wedding at all! About 6-weeks from the wedding I hadn't finished my centerpieces, decorations, linen, favors, draperies, etc. for the ceremony and reception. With one phone call, Ms. Tiana came in and saved the day! Within weeks, she contacted my vendors and was full steam ahead, what I love about Tiana is that she will make suggestions but not push you into doing something that will overextend your budget - it was at the point that I said "do you" because I knew that I was in good hands -:)! Because of her suggestions, our wedding was more than I could imagine, she brought my DIY vision to life. We received wonderful feedback from family and friends about how lovely, professional, and creative the decorations were... the centerpieces, lighting, draping, and arrangements around the room were amazing! Most importantly, Tiana and OH So Pretti LLC made us feel a part of their family and made sure we were taken care of. We have already recommended Tiana and her OH So Pretti team to our friends! Sincere thanks and gratitude, Eric & Tammy Price. (9/08/2018, Buford, GA).

Hiring Alicia was one of the best decisions I had made. As soon as I hired her she was on top of everything!! The stress I felt went away when we had our first consultation. She went above and beyond to make my day special. On my wedding day I had no worries and I knew she would handle everything. I’m so happy with how everything turned out. She kept up with our planned day of timeline and just kept things flowing. Alicia thank you for making our day so special!!

Thank you so much Peter for helping my wedding day become a success!!! I strongly advice to all the brides to hire a wedding coordinator if not at the least a day of coordinator. I planned my whole indian wedding and was debating to get a day of coordinator and so happy I did. I did not realize the stress and all I got myself into planning the whole wedding myself. Wedding day as a bride you want to just enjoy and let someone else handle all the vendors and peter did just that. Thank you so much. Only thing I would say is make sure if you are going to go with just Day of coordination to have out each and every detail and be very organized as that will only help achieve your special day be the best memory ever. Just like mine did. Thank you!!!!!! Misha

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.
