I hired Diamond Girls Bartenders to provide the bar for our class reunion. Leading up to the event, Mary was very good, event helping allowing for additional guests a few days before the event. The day of the event, the bartender was very early and was set up well before the event got started. We purchased the all-inclusive beer/wine package and I was a little disappointed that we ran out of wine(both the red and the white) roughly 45-60 minutes before she was supposed to stop serving. I was also a little upset that she started packing up and was gone(5-10 minutes) before she was supposed to stop serving. Other than that I would suggest Diamond Girl

I used Miranda of Belle Journee as a Reception Event Coordinator for my daughter's wedding on the Sunday night of Memorial Day weekend. She went above and beyond what I expected. Her strength was anticipating needs and taking care of them before they were an issue. My daughter had two Food Trucks catering the event and Miranda had the foresight to have them stay at the back of the parking lot while the outdoor ceremony was taking place just so that their noise would not be an issue. Then she moved them up as needed for the apps. Worked out fabulously! Great eye for detail and really tuned into what we wanted. Thank you Miranda for all you did! I can't say enough about how you allowed me to relax during the event!

They took my vision for my wedding reception with vegetarians and carnivores and and a true ethnic tapestry and made it into a wonderful celebration that all could enjoy. People came up and told us how much they love the food. The service was excellent and we could not have asked for a better experience.

    Being very Type-A, I had no intention of hiring a coordinator. But the more time and money we invested, we realized a coordinator would act like insurance for our day and make sure everything we planned was properly executed. It would be worth it so that my mother, MOH, and I could simply enjoy the day worry-free. We spent a lot of time reading reviews and interviewing, but my MOH and I knew within minutes of meeting Brennan that we had to hire her. Her enthusiasm, attention to detail, passion, and dedication, far exceeded the other coordinators we met with who had been in the business for many years. The energy we saw in the first meeting held strong through additional meetings, the rehearsal night and the entire wedding day. They always arrived early, never nickel-and-dimed us for each thing they did, and they never made us feel like we had limited time with them. They worked with us to create a timeline that included every single detail, making sure it always reflected our vision. If they thought everything we were trying to fit in was crazy, we never knew it because they were determined to make our dream happen! They made sure all of our vendors worked together and on time, that we got in all of the activities planned (even when we had to rearrange timing due to weather), and made sure everything from the room flip to a traveling photo shoot, from a surprise appearance by Sluggerrr to a perfect sparkler send-off at the end, all were perfectly executed. They divided and conquered like a well-oiled machine, seamlessly communicating between three coordinators through headsets, making sure nothing was missed in the preparations and always communicating with me, providing expertise through every decision. I couldn’t believe how well they were able to take my car loads of boxes and assemble all of our decorations with little direction. These ladies were designers after all, and it showed! They were sure to keep the wedding party fed, hydrated and on time through the getting-ready process, and their emergency kit came in handy so many times. Brennan even knew exactly what to do when I had a fainting spell coming on right before walking down the aisle--she had me take a quick seat, chug a Sprite, and talked through my nerves. The As You Wish team had everything exactly where it needed to be when it needed to be there; they even serviced our wedding party throughout dinner! Brandon and I were always their priority, we never went hungry and always had our drink of choice in hand. They even did an alcohol run when our bar ran out of our signature drink. The list of everything they did for us on our big day is so long, I cannot imagine how long it would be if we included the things we never even KNEW they did! We had so many elements coming together on our wedding day. Guests are still telling us how it was one of the most detailed weddings they have ever been to, and there is no way our vision could have been executed so perfectly without the As You Wish team. I would hire them a million times over and I’m genuinely excited for all of the future brides (and grooms!) who will have the honor of working with this incredible team.

    Blake gave us a very affordable price to do my wedding. Blake was on time and he was very friendly. My only complaint was he should have been tending the bar the entire event, there were multiple times I noticed he left the bar to flirt with the caterer.

    I had to plan a sorority brunch two weeks before the event was planned to occur and Jerry was super easy to work with. He not only worked with my schedule on short notice, but he was willing to help make our budget work and gave us a great meal! I would definitely consider him for future events, and will recommend him to other people for their events big or small.

      He catered a late night event in Springfield, Mo a few months back. I was sceptical at first because I have a simple staple of what I eat (I'm kinda picky...), but the Osceola cheeses and homemade blackening spice he used on the chicken was spot on! He also had summer sausage that he made that went really well with the pineapple Dijon while we we where waiting for the blackened thighs and legs. Great night for all!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How do you find a good caterer?

      Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

      If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

      Do you tip a wedding caterer?

      Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

      How much does wedding catering cost per person?

      Wedding catering costs will always vary based on the number of guests you’re inviting, the menu you want to serve, and the way the food will be served to your guests. As you interview wedding catering companies, you’ll be presented with a cost per person for various menus. On the low end, wedding catering may cost approximately $15-$18 per person. This would include prepared food only, with no setup or service of any kind. The starting price for a simple buffet meal with minimal service typically averages $22 per person. Opting for the same menu with all organic ingredients could raise your costs to about $33 per person. A moderately upscale menu (finer ingredients, more elaborate presentation) could range from $24 to $34 per person. High-end wedding catering cost truly has no limit. Lobster, filet mignon, specialty seafood, organic ingredients — menu choices like these can boost your cost per person up to $150 and more.

      How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

      Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

      Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

      What should you look for in a caterer?

      A delicious meal is a critical element of a successful wedding, with happy guests fondly remembering your fabulous wedding food. The right caterer for you will be:

      • Available: Even the best caterer is no good if they aren’t available on your wedding date. Ask early before you get your heart set on someone.
      • Affordable for you: Find a caterer that you can afford. Having a spending plan ahead of time will mean you won’t overspend on food.
      • A good personality fit: Wedding planning is stressful, so work with someone that you can get along with and communicate with easily.
      • Experienced and recommended: Ensure the company has a proven track record with events of your size and the references to back it up.
      • Transparent about money: Steer clear of shady pricing. Find a caterer who is very clear about costs and is happy to talk you through budgets and pricing options.
      • Transparent about food: Find someone who is clear about where they source their food from and where it is prepared.
