We hired Kirby for day of coordination, and I am so thankful that we had her. Miranda, Kirby, and I had met before and created a timeline, and I was able to ask many questions, email them both, and depend on them to confirm details of the wedding with all the vendors. The wedding day was rainy, and that made everything much more difficult for Kirby. But she helped set up the rain back up plan for the ceremony, listened to what I wanted, worked closely with the photographer, diverted questions, and helped make sure that everything went smoothly despite nothing going like our original plan. She did all that- plus much more that I probably don't even realize, as the bride, she kept me pretty well out of it so I could enjoy my special day. We couldn't have done it without her.

Where to start?! LaTasha was the day-of-coordinator at my wedding this past weekend, and words can't describe how helpful and amazing she is. Since the day we hired her she went above and beyond for us. We had a couple pre-wedding check in sessions that were amazing because she is not only personable, but knowledgeable and very organized. She helped me remember and think of details that I would have completely overlooked. She not only provides great services, but she has items that her brides can use for their weddings. I used some of her items, and it was great! She brought items that I hadn't even thought of, and they just added an extra wow factor to the decorations! This is just another perk of working with her for your event! I couldn't imagine not having her on the day of my wedding! Everyone says you'll be stressed, but I had no idea just how much. She handled everything like a champ. She got everyone together to set up and made the venue look beautiful. She was buzzing around doing multiple tasks at once to get everything ready on time. During the reception, she made sure that Jake and I along with our families had our drinks full and checked-in on us frequently to make sure we didn't need anything. She also kept the reception timeline on track, so that we didn't wait too long for things like the dances, cake cutting, etc. Once the reception was over it was clean up time, and her energy was still at 100%. She never let up or slowed down during the whole day. I don't know how she does it, but she is wonderful. I couldn't have asked for a better person to help us on our wedding day. She helped take A LOT of stress off our plate, and the day went so smoothly! I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone!!

    We had the pleasure of seeing Cori do her magic at a family wedding this past summer. She is fun, high-energy, detail-oriented, and works well under pressure. Weddings are fun, but let’s be real: they are stressful! Especially behind the scenes. Cori was there to take care of those pesky details and did it with “class”! We will definitely be using her again for the next family wedding or event!

    I had a day of wedding service only but she did everything I asked of her, was on time, friendly. Made sure my wedding reception hall was set up the way I wanted it. She even had my slideshow set up so guests could view it as we were having couple photos taken .

    Sophie Mueller is an absolute dream to work with! Not only does she have some amazing ideas, she's also very open to other ideas while staying within requested budget. She decorated a cupcake table for my wedding and it was more than I could ever ask for. It was SO nice because I gave her a budget, colors, and the theme of the wedding and she ran with it. As a bride planning a wedding, it was nice having Sophie on the team because I knew the cupcake table was going to be done perfectly. She was SUPER friendly and always had a smile on her face. I would recommend Sophie to anyone who is looking for decoration/event planning ideas. Thanks again for making my big day even more special Sophie!

    Working with April and Chris was great. They listened to what we wanted and brought everything to life beautifully. They were very easy to keep in contact with and were very flexible to any changes we requested. They made planning a wedding easy and as stress free as they possibly could. On the big day everything went smooth! We started a little late, but that was my husband's fault, not theirs lol. But even as I was stressing about my husband showing up an hour late to the venue, they made sure everything was as it should be! Everything turned out beautiful and everyone had a great time!

    Sally was great she is very talented! She was our ceremony coordinator as well. Wedding went smoothly despite of the rain fall, her assistant was very helpful too. Some of the flowers did fall out from the bride's bouquet and wrist corsages. I think weather had something to do with that it was bad out the whole time. I would recommend her! The Bride loved her bouquet, most important.

    June performed our wedding ceremony in October 2016 and it was a wonderful experience working with her. Although I knew her on a personal level beforehand, I was still very impressed with her professionalism and the level of respect she showed towards our ceremony. She drafted unique ideas and strived to always fit the program to us, rather than directing us towards options that didn't feel quite right. She went above and beyond to make sure small details did not get overlooked and throughout the overwhelming process of planning a wedding, she was a calm and steady voice that reassured us that our big day would be perfect. And it was! Thank you June!

They are a delight to work with and stay calm and professional during the chaos of the day (which helps to keep the wedding party relaxed!). I highly recommend Chappelow Events to make your wedding day the very best it can be!

      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.

      My experience with Amanda as the day-of coordinator of my wedding was phenomenal. She met with me multiple times before my wedding to make sure we were on the same page...it was su ch a relief to work with her even then because she's so reassuring about the planning process. The day of our wedding was amazing, and Amanda and her team exceeded our expectations. Not only did she get the extensive setup of our venue done, but she finished up with that in enough time to make it over to the church and ensure that the ceremony tab smoothly. When we walked into our reception venue, we were absolutely stunned at how gorgeous everything looked...thanks to Amanda! We had a lot of things going on throughout the reception, but she calmly and professionally made sure everything was just perfect. Finally, I cannot stress enough the amazing job Amanda did with the cleanup post-reception. Ou r venue needed all our stuff out by a certain time the next morning, and Amanda personally packed up EVERYTHING (gifts included) and hand delivered it to our house in her vehicle. She seriously went above and beyond. I truly think hiring Amanda was one of the best decisions I made throughout our planning process!

      Samantha was wonderful! She was so organized and creative. She helped me through the whole process. She loves her work and it shows. She has great ideas but listens well to make the day reflect the wishes of the bride. She did all the decorations and it was beautiful! The guests commented that our church had never looked so lovely. The bride said the day was everything she wanted it to be! I really can't say enough good about Samantha. I would highly recommend her!

        We used Marian and Allie as Day Of Coordinators for our daughter's wedding at The Elms Hotel this summer. We were planning the wedding from out of town and Marian was very easy to work with. They are very familiar with the venue and the area so that was an added benefit. They made the final contact with our vendors and asked just the right questions to make our vision come to life. Allie did a wonderful job coordinating the rehearsal. She was organized, patient and open to ideas. She prepared a detailed timeline for the wedding day and it all ran like clockwork. Most importantly Marian and Allie gave us the time to be fully present during the wedding day. I was comfortable to turn everything over to them and just soak in the moments of our daughter’s wedding. That in itself is invaluable!

        We had a great experience with “Your Day, Your Way!” My daughter got married on June 6, 2015, and Paula and Freedom were there to help every step of the way. Paula was my creative genius who helped with décor ideas for the church and reception site. She created beautiful runners for the aisle as well as stunning pew bows … and the arch, Oh! It was magnificent! Freedom was my savior organizing and decorating before the reception and then during the reception, making sure that everything was taken care of so I didn’t have to worry about the details and could enjoy the evening. These two pros were so easy to work with and truly wanted to make sure that my daughter’s wedding day was done “Her Way”! The evening went off without a hitch and I must thank “Your Day, Your Way.” They’re the greatest!!

          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.

          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 does it cost for a wedding planner?

          Wedding planning is a full-time job — unless you hire a professional to handle the hard work for you. The cost for a wedding planner will depend on the level of service you desire. The least expensive wedding planner option is day-of coordination, then partial service, then full-service.  

          The national average cost for wedding planning is between $990 and $1,300. Costs are greatly affected by region, with rural or smaller-town wedding planners often far more affordable than planners in higher-cost cities. Here are some examples of the various levels of wedding planning and their potential average costs:

          • Day-of-wedding coordination: $800-$1,700. Day-of services can include the planner finalizing all details, creating a timeline, confirming vendors and overseeing all setup, day-of activities, and cleanup. The couple does all the front-end planning and contracts all the vendors. Time commitment could be about 15-25 hours, depending on pricing.
          • Partial service: $1,500-$3,800. Here the planner works with the couple from the beginning, helping contract vendors, creating a timeline, and overseeing all details of day-of execution. Time commitment could be about 30-60 hours, depending on package and pricing.
          • Full service: $3,500-$8,000 or more. Here the professional handles all wedding and planning details including working on design, securing rentals, getting the venue and vendors, and handling complete execution of the event. Time commitment could be 50-150 hours or more, depending on package and pricing.
          • Consulting: $50-$150 per hour for design, vendor, reception and other wedding planning consultation.

          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.

          Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
