Darlene and her team were a joy to work with. The event was a backyard family wedding reception in the Beverly Hills area. She and her staff were timely, professional and extremely accommodating. Darlene was very responsive as we were planning for the event. She was also very generous with her staff on the day of the reception. They ensured that the area the food was served as well as the areas in the kitchen they worked on were clean and orderly. And to top it off, the food was delicious, hot and never ran low! The honey glazed chicken was a big hit. I would highly recommend Darlene and Oceanique Catering for your next event!

Meeka and her staff handled our holiday event fabulously. Her expertise allowed me to enjoy our event without worrying about setup, decorations, food or cleanup. The food was delicious, the correct temperature throughout the event and of sufficient quantity. We received many compliments from our guests. She also added some special touches to make the event unique to us. I would certainly use her again for any type of event. This is the first time that I have used an event planner for a family event and it was so easy. You can definitely leave it all up to Meeka!

Omg!!! I can't explain how much I am pleased with the service provided by the team at Monumental Heights. If I could attach photos I would so I could show how much detail and time they spent in making sure everything was to my liking. My rep Trisha stayed in contact with me every step of the way and even threw in a couple of extra freebies which wasn't a part of the service I initially paid for. Thanks to their team my event was a huge success and I will definitely use them in the future.

DDG Events was a God send, My event was a little complicated to put together especially since Im probably a little difficult to deal with, they were able to properly interrupt my vision and manifest it to a wonderful event, her staff was very knowledgeable and helpful, they choose the right combinations of themes and vendors for my event. I had two event planners quit on me and had two and a half weeks till my event date. She was able to find a venue, acquire servers, support staff, a radio personality host, decorate and coordinate my whole event, I literately walked in and all I had to do was my presentation. Hats off to DDG Events for a first class event on such short notice. Highly recommend and will use again!!

I hired Effortless Event Design to plan and coordinate my garden party last summer. It was a splendid success. Chrystal helped with everything from invitations to swag bags for my guests. My requests were at bit outlandish but they (EED) always delivered. My guests commented on the professionalism of the event planners. I was completed satisfied with the planner and her crew. There designs for my theme were perfect. I insisted on flower cupcakes and again they came through. Every detail was as I requested. I recommend Effortless Event Design because they don't miss a beat.

Holly Hamilton was awesome, she exceeded all of our expectations, with her skills. She was totally a great an easy person to work with. Holly's cakes were Beautiful, we had many people ask us who did the cup cakes, they were very creative game pieces,that took lots of skill an time. The main cake was very creative, the frosting was very pretty and tasted very good, not real sweet just right. Holly also did our flowers for the wedding reception, they were beautiful and was very convenient to be able to do one stop, shopping saving us time and money. After reception we had Holly make a Strawberry/Lemon cake for my moms 80th birthday that was delicious an once again perfect. She hit a home run for our events. Holly is a very honest hard working woman that deserves your business an ours. Thanks so much Holly for all your help, in making our decisions easy. You were wonderful l:) The Younglove's

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.
