Monica did my trial and day-of bridal hair and make up. She has a very flexible schedule and I was able to set up an appointment at my convenience. She is a pro! I normally don't put make up on even on a special ocassion, so I had requested for a light make up but would look elegant at the same time. She did a great job on the trial and she did awesomely amazing on the actual wedding! I did not regret a thing about my make up/hair. I felt lovely throughout the night!! She provided me a touch up kit which was well appreciated! Loved her work.

Working with Patricia was great! Before we met she was very responsive and answered all my questions. She was very sensitive to my needs and asked me detailed questions to make sure she was giving me the look I wanted. She made me feel at ease with the whole process. Not only can she do makeup, she is a wiz with hair! She did my hair and makeup for my bridal shower and I got tons of compliments. Hiring her again for my wedding day! Highly recommend.

Lauren is by far the most amazing make-up artists I have ever encountered! Everyone in my bridal party (8bridesmaids) and my mom were beyond impressed with her skill, ability to tailor to each face/personality, as well as make everyone comfortable with wearing bridal makeup. Having her be a professional photographer was such a plus! She brought her camera with and was able to show me exactly how I would look in photos so I wasn't hesitant about looking washed out or underwhelming. Price is extremely reasonable, especially for the amount of time she dedicates to making everyone look beautiful. I had an awesome trial as well with my bridesmaids and it was so fun to drink wine and get our makeup done. She also had recommended a stylist who I also booked. I couldn't recommend any one person more than I would recommend Lauren!

My husband and I did not realize how stressful planning our wedding would be. I know I literally felt like I was going to pull out my hair (and my fiancé's!!). Fortunately, a close friend suggested I hire a wedding coordinator to assist with the big day. Vibrant Moments saved our sanity! Shay and Janean were proactive, professional, organized, thoughtful, flexible and problem solvers. They reminded us about tasks we never even thought of. They also were informal marriage counselors during those planning conference calls when my fiancé and I had to make decisions LOL! But seriously, they helped us talk through some tough decisions related to the wedding ceremony and reception. Leading up to the wedding, they checked in with the bridal party and all the vendors to ensure our big day was perfect. And when the wedding day finally came, they were on the scene taking care of every detail, big and small. I mean, they showed up with this supply basket that had so much stuff in it it had to be like a magician's hat. One of my bridesmaid's needed a phone charger - they had that. One of my othe bridesmaid's broke her earring - they broke out the glue gun. They had tissues, mints...you name it. And most important, they were fun, had positive attitudes and truly made us feel like the success of our wedding was as important to them as it was to us. We can't thank them enough for all they did to help make our big day special.

Words cannot begin to describe how amazing Jess is! We had such a wonderful time with her and we all looked absolutely stunning for my wedding on 10/21/17!! Makeup/hair was PERFECT the entire night even with me crying multiple times because of how happy I was. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I changed my hair after my trial and she was just excited as I was and embraced my crazy! I felt so beautiful the entire night and my husband LOVED the way I looked!!! She will be the best decision you ever make!!! Again, I am so happy to have met you Jess and was able to share one of the most important days of my life with you. Jess, thank you so much! You know I love you girl!!!

My daughter got married in 2015 and Annalisa was our go to gal..she helped us out with everything and listened to my daughter's ideas and made them happen. Phantom of the opera was her theme! Bella events helped answer questions and got the wedding venue to do what was expected and her day was special. She made the bride's/bridal party bouquets. Centerpieces and many extras added. Would highly recommend her again.

We had a client open house at our office for roughly 30 clients and consultants. Being a busy and growing company, we did not have the time to properly prepare for the event, nor did we want to screw it up and embarrass ourselves. SAVING Grace came highly recommended, so we gave her a call, gave her the parameters, which we had lots of, and let her run with it. The party went down without any issues, the staff she secured was amazing, the food was delicious and plentiful and the entire event was a huge success. It is always best to leave things to the professionals, and Grace is certainly that. I would recommend SAVING Grace anytime.

Natalie was amazing! There were so many moving pieces at my wedding, and Natalie was the glue that held it all together. I was able to tell my family/bridal party if they had questions, or stumbled on an issue at the wedding, to talk to Natalie, and she would address it. The best part was, I didn't have to worry about every little detail the day-of. We met up prior to the wedding and went through the day's itinerary, including set-up, the actual wedding, and teardown. She even went above and beyond, and cleaned up the bridal suite at the end of the night, which looked like a tornado hit it. I could count on her to coordinate with the florist, caterer, venue, etc, and the wedding turned out amazing. Completely worth it, so the bride and groom can enjoy the big day!

I have never used a service like this before so i had no idea what to expect. I had too many clothes and felt like I had nothing to wear. I hired Kate for the Closet cleanout and a wardrobe pairing. Both were great experiences. First she went through all of my clothes and made a pile of clothes & Shoes that were worn or out dated to give/throw away. Then she put some outfits together with the clothes I already owned, some of which I would have never thought to put together, so that was fun. I didn't like every outfit but it was a great process. She also made some suggestions of things to add to my wardrobe and sent me online links to those items. I had a few questions afterwards and she promptly answered them by email. I could definitely see doing the wardrobe pairing twice a year, Spring & Fall. Kate's service saved me time & money because I have new outfits with what I already owned, I can get ready faster in the morning, and she prevented me from buying things I didn't need or items they may not go with anything in my closet. The outfits below are all outfits put together with clothes I already owned but had never thought to put together. After Kate was finished I used an app on my phone to take pictures of the outfits and categorize them to help me remember what I have :)

    I knew right away when I stood up in my sisters wedding that I had to have Cathie as my florist for my wedding. I knew it would be hard to top the beautiful bouquet on my sisters day but Cathie did! Cathie is always so easy to work with and knew my vision right away. I even remember there being a hiccup Bc the greenly I wanted was coming from Houston and that was the same time at the Hurricane. Cathie replaced it and I couldn’t even tell the difference. Also I told Cathie we were on a limited budget and didn’t want to spend a ton on flowers. Some florist would just skimp on the details but not Cathie, she did an amazing job! Everyone in my bridal party and wedding loved the flowers and thought our bouquets were stunning!!! I would recommend Cathie to anyone who is looking for wedding, proms, and any special occasions. Thank you for helping make our big day so special!

      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.
