I hired holly as my wedding planner and florist for my 2011 wedding. She was amazing!!! She planned the entire thing... Decor, location, organized everyone and everything and I just gave her my opinion!!! I have never seen someone take your vision and make it reality until I met holly. Weddings your way was the best decision I could have made for my special day. It was great to not have to worry about a thing and be stress free. And she was very reasonably priced compared to every wedding planner I looked at!!!! Talented doesn't even begin to describe her. You would be making a huge mistake by not using weddings your way.

Steve was the perfect caterer for our wedding. He went above and beyond to make our day special. Admittingly, Steve was more detailed and prepared than our wedding planner and everyone else combined...his experience really shined through and put us at ease. We expected 425-450 for our guest list, and with just 2 weeks to go, started to panic as our list grew to over 600. Steve simply remained calm through the whole thing...a phone call or two and he said everything was alright and we'd get through it. I was about to be a basket case, yet his calm reassured me. The best of it was, before anyone else was served, Steve personally served us first...along with a complimentary bottle of wine he had picked out especially for our meal. He stopped for a second to congratulate us, allow for a few extra pictures, and to make sure we...the bride and groom...were totally taken care of before moving onto our guests. Steve made our day special in so many ways. Something my mother said afterwards that sums up Steve pretty well was, "He's an old fashioned gentleman. His handshake is his bond, and his word is gold. He gets his reputation the old way...he earns it.". I highly recommend Steve to anyone for any catering need.

    I could not have asked for a better wedding planner! Shellee is an all around wonderful woman who made our wedding day the best day ever. She helped us organize, set up, and decorate our reception. She made all our flowers (bouquets, boutonniere's and flower arrangements for the tables). She even spent our entire wedding day doing last minute items to make everything go smoothly and she was there during the reception to keep things in tip top shape. I gave her a few of my ideas of what I wanted and she ran with them and made it a hundred times better than I could of imagined. Absolutely loved her!! I still to this day hear how wonderful our wedding was from other friends and family. She is very well organized and is there to make it stress free for you and your family. I would recommend her any day!

    While we were planning our wedding, I decided that we needed help. I was feeling overwhelmed with all the details and wasn't sure how I was going to make everything happen from another state. Jaime was amazing! She was everything that we needed and more. From beginning to end, I didn't have to worry about a thing on our wedding day. Thank you, Jaime!!

    I have seen many events catered by Penny and her team, and am always impressed by how seamlessly and flawlessly they take place. Penny always comes more than prepared to make the event perfect, has a lot of creativity, great menu options, and very affordable prices. We've had her to banquets, buffets, anniversary parties, client events, birthday parties, barbecues, garden parties, and more. Hopefully one of these days we'll get to see her work her magic on a wedding, too!

      Bria did an absolutely incredible job planning our wedding. She was well organized, solved problems before we even knew there was a problem, and maintained a professional demeanor with us, our guests, and our vendors. Our wedding would not have been as perfect as it was without her help. We are so grateful we made the decision to hire her and we cannot recommend her services enough.

      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!

      Our wedding was on a very tight budget and we were consulting florists to fit our small budget for flowers. We finally decided to do it ourselves to keep the costs down. However, I did want to leave a feedback for Lori as she was very easy to work with. She is patient and took the time to understand my needs! Wish you the best!

      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!

      I strive for excellence in all areas, as if it were my own wedding day. I also offer assistance with vendor recommendations, favor recommendations and preparation, and all items that are to go home with the bride's parents that night, are packed and ready to be loaded into their vehicles before I leave the reception venue (usually about the time the dancing starts). A detailed Contract of Services is signed by the wedding coordinator and the bride's parents, and a copy supplied to the bride's parents at least two weeks prior to the wedding weekend.

      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.
