Our original photography company had an emergency one week before our wedding. Tyler stepped up, no questions asked, and was able to cover our wedding. The pictures were phenomenal, and he was extremely personable. I would highly recommend Smashing Entertainment!

I hired Michele Palmer to be my day-off wedding coordinator for my 220-person wedding, and I could not be more pleased with the services that Michele and her colleague, Debby, provided! FANTASTIC!!! The wedding day-off coordination service is more that just the "day-off" - Michele came out to the venue and went over details with me a month prior to the wedding, her and Debby attended the rehearsal dinner (and patiently waited for our tardy wedding party), and Michele was quick to answer any questions I had and give me advice in the months leading up to our wedding. During the actual wedding day, Michele and Debby made sure everything went smoothly and I didn't have to worry about a thing. Michele was also instrumental in providing me with great advice regarding asking my rental company for an early tent delivery - since it was expected to rain all week prior to our wedding. This ensured that the grass under the tent was relatively dry for our wedding day. I would 100% recommend Michele and her company to any future bride. Trust me, you need the help!!!

My brother asked me to plan his wedding, but I knew the task was too big for me. I called Events by Clark and hired Mela Clark to do the planning for his wedding. On our first meeting she met with my brother, his fiancé, and myself over lunch to discuss the initial plans for the wedding. She was extremely professional, organized, with the sweet and caring personality I was looking for in a wedding planner. She came prepared with ideas, checklists, and venues she had in mind with our budget. She took us to see a wedding venue the same day and within 2 days she worked out a deal with the venue and we booked it! Mela went above and beyond my expectations. She researched and contacted vendors, scheduled all of our appointments, and attended all of the appointments with us. She managed any issues with the vendors so we didn't have to worry about them (example: the invitation proof was incorrect and she worked with the vendor to get it fixed). She managed all the contracts and payments with the vendors. She provided a wedding agenda for the family which listed dates, times, hotels, addresses, and venues for dress rehearsal and the wedding. She also provided the wedding timeline and activities for the day of the wedding with important details for the venue staff, Photographer, DJ, Bride and Groom as well as the family. Mela was truly on top of everything. Let me give you an example. We hired a Mariachi Band for the wedding. They were scheduled to be at the wedding and playing at 8:15pm. They had not shown up by 8:08pm so I said to Mela, "Will the Mariachi Band be here at 8:15?". She said "I've already called them and they said they will be here and playing by 8:15". The Mariachi Band showed and was playing lovely music by 8:15! On the wedding day Mela was the first person to arrive at the venue and the last person to leave. She made everything easy for the Bride, Groom and myself. I was able to enjoy the day without worrying about the details. Mela was there making sure the wedding was set up exactly how the bride wanted it and it turned out to be a spectacular wedding. Mela was such a pleasure to work with that I will definitely call her for my next event.

I had the opportuntiy to work with Thammy and i must say she was very professional. She gave clear directions and no one was left wondering what to do. She also made the day very stress-free for the bride and the bridal party. She has a great personality and you can see her passion. I would 100% recommend her to anyone planning a wedding or even and i look forward to working with her again. Two thumbs up

My May 19, 2018 wedding was absolutely perfect thanks to Aly! The weather changed at least once a day in the week approaching, and we had a plan for every outcome. I always knew Aly would answer my calls, texts and emails, and always had a solution for every issue -- real or imagined -- I could think of. She is professional, extremely knowledgable and affordable. My husband and I are so glad we used Weddings by Aly, and I would recommend her services to any bride. Thank you Aly!!!

Denise was worth her weight in gold. She was friendly, professional, and really took care of business. Other vendors and family members commented that our wedding planner really made things smoothly, making our wedding a night to remember. She even helped me pull off a secret gender reveal at the end of our wedding reception. We highly recommend Denise, and we thank her for helping to make our wedding day PERFECT! -Noel and Jhemika Leslie

I got married just last week. Hiring Mimi as my wedding planner was one of the BEST choices that I made throughout the whole wedding planning process. She deserves 10 stars out of 5! I don't think that I could have gotten through the wedding without her. Mimi was tremendously helpful during my planning - helping me figure out the setup and the timeline. On the actual wedding day, she was the one who made sure that the vendors set up the venue exactly to my liking. During the wedding, Mimi ran the event wonderfully while I was busy mingling with the guests. Mimi never got in the way of the celebration yet was always around when I needed help. The wedding turned out absolutely PERFECT and I got everything I wanted. The party was fantastic. The venue was beautiful. All the details were right on point. None of this would have been possible without Mimi's coordination. After the wedding, Mimi stayed late to clean up and delivered all the decorations back to us. She is a true professional and I HIGHLY recommend her.

Danielle was exceptional in that she went above and beyond what any of the other wedding planners I interviewed would do. She was there to communicate with me at all times, whenever I needed it. When we had to trouble shoot and change plans, she was flexible and accommodating. Above all, she made us feel like anything was possible and that we didn't have to compromise our vision even if our budget was small. Her creativity, optimistic attitude, and resourceful nature was exactly what we needed and a breath of fresh air in comparison to all of wedding planners out there. I highly recommend her without reservation!

I hired Meg as my wedding planner when I realized I would be out of town for work the three months before my wedding and needed to delegate out a lot of the groundwork. In a world with Google and Etsy and Pinterest, I found sometimes there was just too much information and too many options, and I needed someone to take my half-formed ideas, do the initial digging for me, and present me with a much more useful, manageable, appropriate, personal set of options. She helped me figure out a location (and even know where to start looking) and then coordinated with the site for floorplans, contracts, etc.. She helped me find our cake baker/artist, she helped me find someone to do my make-up, she helped work through dozens of iterations of our menu before we finally found what we wanted (a combination of sentimental favorites, DIY standards, and some fancy sweet and savory pastries with my favorite flavors and fancy non-alcoholic beverages she catered herself). She had a number of suggestions for DJs and bands and photographers. Even though we ended up going with a self-made playlist, and a harpist and photographer who were both family friend, going through the options she offered was what made us feel comfortable that we were making the right choice, and paying a reasonable price. She helped us figure out decor to fit the tone we wanted to set. She knew the backdoor tricks for getting professionally measured for a dress I was ordering online and avoiding gifts we didn't need. She kept me on top of deadlines, which ended up being really important for things like dress alterations and vendor deposits and contracts. She helped us navigate invites and registries. I feel like the three most important things I got out of hiring her as a wedding planner was 1) the ability to make sure I was free to enjoy the wedding itself, because someone else had it under control, 2) the ability for my husband to enjoy himself thoroughly at the wedding itself, because someone else had it under control and he hadn't had to be my sounding board for mundane details through the planning phase, and 3) the ability to collect and hash out ideas with someone who took into account my tastes, budget, and attitudes. Her prices were very reasonable, and she was available and insightful for a summer of planning-by-email. It was a perfect day, and I had a great time, my husband had a great time, our families had a great time, and the guests had a great time. My only reservation in giving a 5-star review was that, the day of the event, Meg's assistant got appendicitis. Not only did we not have that extra person on hand for re-stocking the buffet, clean-up, etc., but then Meg herself left two hours into the reception to be with him in the hospital. Everything worked out (with the appendix and the reception), and I know she can't plan for every possibility, but I did feel bad (when I found out later) that my Mom and a few other relatives had to duck away intermittently to help with kitchen duty, when I'd specifically hired a wedding planner to make sure they could just have fun that night.

Bobbi did our son's wedding and the decor she did for them was beautiful. She gave them several wonderful suggestions during the pre wedding planning and than they chose what they wanted her to do. The color combination they wanted was beautifully done by Bobbi. She even helped them the day of the wedding which was appreciated.

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.
