Words can't describe how awesome my daughter's sweet 16 party turned out thanks to Trendy Fun Party event planners. Monica and Diego were professional from the very beginning and kept me in the loop with every aspect of the planning. They turned the space into a cocktail themed party. Diego also was the hired photographer for the event and took some amazing photos. My daughter loved it and was the topic of the day when she went to school. Thank you both for making this event so special and I would recommend this company to anyone looking to plan an event.

I don't know where to start, but I will start by saying I thank God for Ivory Coats! She was God sent, she came into my life less than two months into my wedding day and all my worries disappeared! She made my big day more then I imagined, she is very understanding and she listen to vision and try her best to bring it to life. She coordinate my wedding and everyone loved her. My husband and I are very thankful for Ivory and her stuff, they were wondering, I will use celebration event planning again and again. God bless you Ivory Coats. Love always Mr. And Mrs. Atkinson.

Stephanie and her team did an amazing job with the catering at our wedding. Before the date even came we had great experiences tasting and working out the logistics of the event with them. We couldn't have asked for a better start to finish experience with them. They got there early and got to work right away setting up, and even helped us when it was coming down to the wire to set up a few things that weren't their responsibility. She knows how to run the show confidently and made sure we were happy at all times. They really helped out in more ways than just food, and were super supportive and adaptive when weather and schedules didn't go as planned. The table presentation was perfect, and we were able to pick from numerous options through them on settings and linens. On top of all that the important stuff, the food, was amazing! Specifically we had BBQ options with sides to match. It was all amazing, and everyone enjoyed it, especially the brisket. The jalapeno poppers were the bomb! The bartending service provided through them was great also. After the wedding we can say confidently they are the best value out there, and they were an absolute perfect choice for our wedding. Thank you guys!!!

I used Lanette for Day-of-Coordination services for my wedding and would definitely recommend her! She went above and beyond to help me with lots of details the week of (e.g. help with decorations, escort card organization) and was easily accessible for any last-minute advice/questions. At the wedding, she was crucial in helping the day flow smoothly, troubleshooting, and picking up all of the things people had left behind at the church and the reception. Her value could not have been beat. She was a lot less than many planners quoted me and I can't imagine anyone doing a better job.

What a wonderful experience with Jennifer from Finer Soul. I was able to plan my event with her and she handled everything else. From the perfect floral center pieces to the delightful canapes that were served on silvery white platters our "White" party was a big hit. Jennifer used all white table linens, platters, and even provided a chocolate waterfall that was the perfect impact statement for our charity event. Thank you for such a lovely evening.

We didn't even think we needed a day of coordinator until we started seriously looking at logistics and planning just over a week out from our event. Sola was just what we needed. She didn't a great job of keeping things organized and keeping us involved in the party and not in the details. She did a great job attending to our needs even when we would forget to utilize her. I would recommend Sola for anyone planning an event.

Tiana and her team were amazing! We corresponded through emails for a couple of months about our plans for our dinner party. Tiana was always very professional with suggestions and couldn't have been more flexible with our needs and numbers right down to 'what if it rains?'..as this was an outdoor event..no tent! She made sure to check in on our progress as the date approached and then went right to work the day of the party. They worked so hard and looked after all 140 of us even through the rain! We couldn't have hosted our party without their help! I hope to make our dinner party an annual event and work with Oh So Pretti again nest year! Thank you Tiana!

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.

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. 

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.
