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.

Aga is the absolute best! She did an amazing job for my bridal party and me for my wedding. Not only did she help me get the look I envisioned, she could easily create any style the girls wanted on the spot. She did it so quickly and it looked flawless too! I received many compliments from others about my hair and everyone was so impressed with her skills. I also greatly appreciated how professional and accommodating she was. My bridal party and I were getting ready in Chicago and she was willing to travel to us. This woman is a superstar and I 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 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.

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 am not even remotely close to being a party planner type. For me, some paper plates, a few balloons and a tablecloth and we're all good! But when I wanted to throw a SUPERB Christmas party for my developmentally disabled brother and his housemates, there was nowhere else to turn! Point of Elegance was right on point, making the party one that continues to be talked about several months later! Their attention to detail and their passion to make each party it's own unique event is unmatched and truly made that special day even more special than I ever would have imagined! I have already decided that POE will forever be my go to to get the party started. Everyone else does events! They do EXCELLENCE!

I believe my work stands out from the rest because no one has my own personal style. Put it to you in this way ,it's like having your favorite artist come and dress you/ give you their own personal wardrobe.

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.

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 does it cost for a wedding planner?

Wedding planning is a full-time job — unless you hire a professional to handle the hard work for you. The cost for a wedding planner will depend on the level of service you desire. The least expensive wedding planner option is day-of coordination, then partial service, then full-service.  

The national average cost for wedding planning is between $990 and $1,300. Costs are greatly affected by region, with rural or smaller-town wedding planners often far more affordable than planners in higher-cost cities. Here are some examples of the various levels of wedding planning and their potential average costs:

  • Day-of-wedding coordination: $800-$1,700. Day-of services can include the planner finalizing all details, creating a timeline, confirming vendors and overseeing all setup, day-of activities, and cleanup. The couple does all the front-end planning and contracts all the vendors. Time commitment could be about 15-25 hours, depending on pricing.
  • Partial service: $1,500-$3,800. Here the planner works with the couple from the beginning, helping contract vendors, creating a timeline, and overseeing all details of day-of execution. Time commitment could be about 30-60 hours, depending on package and pricing.
  • Full service: $3,500-$8,000 or more. Here the professional handles all wedding and planning details including working on design, securing rentals, getting the venue and vendors, and handling complete execution of the event. Time commitment could be 50-150 hours or more, depending on package and pricing.
  • Consulting: $50-$150 per hour for design, vendor, reception and other wedding planning consultation.

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.
