There is no one I wouldn’t recommend Holly to! We were primarily interested in Weddings Your Way for the affordability, but knew it was a solid choice when we met in person with Holly. I knew I could count on her for prompt, professional, and precise communication. She lays out her process from the beginning which made me feel at ease knowing we had scheduled times to chat about next steps. I wanted my grandmother’s necklace as part of my bouquet as my something old, and she made it happen while keeping it safe and sound in the weeks prior to our wedding. I didn’t not use Holly’s Day-Of Coordinating Services because I didn’t have the need or budget for it, but I know she would have exceeded my expectations there as well. She came to my venue and set up all the floral, and then offered to come back once the cake had arrived to put flowers on my cake. She really cares about her clients and has a knack for what she does, easily the best vendor of my wedding!

    Lula-Ru created all of our reception decorations, cake topper, and photo op areas. Shellee coordinated everything the day of the wedding so I did not have to help set up. I gave her a list of vendor names/numbers and when items should be delivered and she took care of the rest. I didn't have one worry about how the reception would turn out which was so nice and one less stress for me! She also created the bride and bridesmaids flower bouquets as well as the groom and groomsmen's boutonniere with colors I picked out - they turned out beautiful!! Shellee worked with the reception hall vendor to coordinate the decorations with how the room was laid out. Again, she took stress away from me as I would have had to do that if I didn't have Lula-Ru's service. A year and a half after our wedding, I still get compliments on how beautiful our reception looked! I highly recommend Lula-Ru Weddings!

    I hired Chris to share the Gospel at an outreach event where we had 100 students. Chris did a great job sharing Jesus and using illustrations and stories to connect with our students. Christ has a good understanding of youth culture and how to speak truth to teens.

    Ask For the Moon Events is wonderful!! Maddie saved me after I had a crisis with my venue. She has the warmest, most calming personality, and even though I had only hired her for Day-Of Coordination, she was more than happy to take my calls and talk to me whenever I was feeling panicked or stressed, and even attend vendor meetings with me. She is just so fantastic, and such a godsend, I really can't say enough good things. She goes above and beyond, and is more than just a professional, she makes it feel like you are working with a friend. If you are even considering working with Maddie and Ask For the Moon Events, I highly recommend you do! One phone call with Maddie and you will be feeling calm and prepared- I promise it will be one of the best decisions you make!

      My dream wedding would not have been possible if it weren't for Erin Steinlage. Due to various factors including a somewhat short engagement period, limited free time, and living across the country, I simply would not have had the wedding I wanted without Erin's help. Erin understood my style and vision immediately. From the initial meeting we were on the same page and on a clear path towards a perfect day. Erin's most valuable role in planning was curating options tailored to my unique and specific tastes. Beyond not having the luxury of time to exhaust many options and deliberate over many possibilities, Erin made it simple for us to make decisions quickly and efficiently. I believe she has a vast understanding of the Twin Cities wedding market and available vendors. With an excellent taste level herself and a strong grasp on our needs and desires, she presented us with curated options from which we could select from. In addition to her invaluable role in streamlining the planning process, Erin brought a confident ease and calm presence throughout the planning period and into the wedding day. I felt completely at ease and taken care of throughout the day. She certainly was working like crazy behind the scenes to ensure we could relax and enjoy ourselves but she was also at our disposal to assist and anticipate our needs. Erin is amazing! She is an expert, kind and non-judgmental, and she delivers all she has promised and more.

        Bria was fantastic! We had a very DIY wedding and she was crucial in making it all come together. She coordinated flipping the room from ceremony to reception and everything was perfect! My now husband and I even had some time to ourselves while our guests were mingling. Bria was really great at keeping us on track during planning and making sure all details were accounted for and communicated. It was such a relief to turn everything over to her the week before and know it was in good hands. I’d highly recommend!!

        I contacted Culinary Partners after needing a last minute caterer for a large family event. I spoke to Gerald and he was very accommodating, especially given the time frame (we're talking barely 3 days here). He arrived on time to prepare the food and everything was cooked perfectly. From the steaks to the vegetables, we couldn't have asked for a better meal. Next time we need an event catered, we will be sure to contact Gerald again, hopefully with more notice, though!

        If you’re looking for one of THE best wedding planners around, you absolutely need to get in touch with Anjali. Make no mistake, she is the best. We did our homework, interviewed several planners nearly a year before our wedding, interviewed references and nobody even came close to connecting with us and what we wanted on a more personal and professional level as she did. It’s been a little more than six months since our wedding and we continue to receive comment after comment on how beautifully put together our wedding was. It was a true experience and we owe that all to Anjali! Anjali is an extremely intelligent woman who is very thoughtful in her planning. She blends intellect with years of success, a positive attitude, top-of-the-line team of vendors, takes extreme pride in her work and above all else, she honestly cares about you. She’ll take care of you, she’ll go to battle for you, she’ll solve a ton of problems for you and she will always balance your particular quality/price equation. I think we had to most amazing wedding imaginable. Filled with surprises and EVERY part of the ceremony and reception was much better than I actually imagined. How often does that happen…you get more and better than you expected?? She is respected by anybody who is anyone and despite what I clearly saw as a very close and comfortable working relationship with these vendors, she never once let anything slip. She nailed the business end of the wedding planning, budgeting, negotiating and she completely took care of us every step of the way. There are few things more important than your wedding day. I wanted assurances and piece-of-mind that everything would go perfectly despite any problems that may naturally arise. Anjali is the best out there. I’m so impressed with what she accomplished and how she accomplished it and we consider it a total blessing to have had her as our Wedding Planner!

        Joan did an amazing job with our wedding! My husband & I were convinced we wouldn't need a wedding planner. But a few weeks before the wedding we were swamped. Joan was extremely professional, worked within our budget, & made sure our big day went off without a hitch. She even worked with my Mom to decide the best flowers & color scheme for our wedding! She helped arrange the food, set up the venue, the photographers, video, music & audio equipment. What impressed me the most was her amazing ability to maintain control as well as her passion for making our day stand out amongst all other weddings! Our friends & family are still raving about it!

          Heather and Justin were an instrumental part in making my wedding day perfect! I cannot say enough great things about SunKissed Rentals & Events and their services. From start to finish, Heather helped me plan my wedding reception and made it a dream come true. Heather and I had multiple coordination meetings prior to the day of which allowed me to sit back and enjoy my wedding day. They handled everything from placing decorations and place cards on each table, to setting up wedding signs, to handing out tips to the vendors. At the end of the night, Heather and Justin tore down all of the decorations and moved the gifts from the venue into our car. I highly recommend working with SunKissed Rentals & Events if you are planning any type of event - they are incredibly organized, professional and fun!

                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.
