Pi was terrific! She handled the semi-chaotic morning at my home very well as I dealt with some last minute issues at the venue. I wanted a fairly natural bridal look, not too much makeup and she worked with me to make sure my makeup was perfect.

Theresa did a fantastic job with my bridal and engagement photo looks. She is so attentive and enthusiastic about my ideas. Theresa is very meticulous with her work, and I couldn't have been happier with her professionalism and how the makeup turned out. Love her!

Cheryl was amazing... So accommodating and professional. She spoiled us at my daughter's bridal brunch from menu planning to clean-up. By serving and clearing each course, she let me really enjoy the time with our guests and her Creme Brulee French Toast with warm syrup and vanilla scented whipped cream was to die for! I would highly recommend Cheryl's services; so efficient and so delicious!

Annie is a wonderful host/manager/event planner! Having worked with her to create both personal social events and business social events, I can attest to her warmth, professionalism, and efficiency. Not only does she do an excellent job "making it happen" for an event, but she makes helpful suggestions and offers advice in a way that is accessibly and authentic. It's like getting help from your mother except with no judgement or guilt! Annie really is a first-rate professional and one who truly cares about YOU, YOUR EVENT, and making YOU HAPPY. I highly recommend consulting with her when you plan your next event in the Raleigh area.

Ms. Davis helped in the planning and coordination of a cruise I went on in December 2014. Even though we are friends, she was very professional in her work. Since I am on a limited income she was extremely helpful in allowing me to work out the payments through an affordable monthly payment plan. I was impressed by the way she was able to bring so many of us together prior to sailing so that we would have an opportunity to bond and get to know one another. She went above and beyond by securing hotel accommodations and providing a time line for applying for passports and monies needed for expenses, etc. In the end, she was able to coordinate travelers for one cruise from three states into a cohesive and fun loving group. I would highly recommend Ms. Davis as a travel consultant, and in particular, to those of you who are first time travelers. She took care of all of the details, no matter how small, and I had a wonderful time. Overall, Ms. Davis provided excellent service and I look forward to cruising with her again in the future.

We used Alyson as a business consultant about 5 years ago, she put together a risk analysis for us, in about 2 weeks. She provided her expert opinion on our areas for opportunity. Since then she's been managing one of the stores, and running day to day business. The store always looks impeccable and is achieving its sales and customer growth goals. She runs all of the social media accounts, and handles all of the staffing and scheduling. Alyson is able to multi-task and remain focused on the bottom line.

I found Chrisabethella Catering through Thumbtack. Never having heard of the company before, I wasn't 100% sure, but after speaking with Courtney and seeing the level of professionalism and knowledge she exhibited, I chose Chrisabethella Catering to cater my wedding. Catering involved into "Catering *and* Event Rentals," once Courtney explained her capabilities to also handle our event rentals. She was extremely flexible in the items I needed (our primary color was a very tricky shade of dark purple-blue), and was always patient with me as we went through the process of coordinating the right items. We had many late-in-the-game changes to our wedding, and through it all, Courtney was patient, responsive, and took the time to consult with me and make sure all of my questions were answered -- no matter how small or trivial they seemed. The fact that Courtney acted as a trusted advisor in my wedding planning process was amazing -- she went above and beyond to meet strict budgetary requirements, yet provided her professional opinion on if cutting X or Y would result in a lower quality service, or hinder the guest experience. As someone who did most of the planning on my own and who isn't too wedding-savvy, this type of assistance was invaluable. Did I mention that all of our guests loved the food, Courtney's team did a great job delivering everything on-time, and she even followed up with me that day to make sure we had everything we needed? I am so glad to have had such a wonderful caterer/rentals vendor who cared as much about staying within budget and providing guests with a quality experience as I did! From catering, to event rentals, to the cake, and consultation -- Chrisabethella Catering definitely hit the mark!

I had a wonderful experience when going to Watkins for a floral consult for my up coming wedding. I was greeted by the owner as soon as I stepped into the shop! They have a separate area for the wedding consults and it was beautiful! I can't wait to work with them for my wedding!

I hired Kate to plan my wedding reception on relatively short notice, having a short engagement and soon realizing a reception would be too much. It's not much of a long shot to say Kate saved my wedding. She went far beyond the call of duty, put together a reception that matched perfectly with what I imagined after only a couple of conversations with me. She has an eye for the details as well as grasping the overall set-up. Her organization skills, planning abilities, and follow-through with everything was incredible, while staying well within budget. Kate went far beyond expectations.

I’ve been going to Deja for my hair needs for about 7 years now. She is by far one of the best stylists that I have ever seen. My hair texture isn’t the easiest to work with (long and very thick), and Deja makes it look beautiful every single time. She is thorough, but also efficient, and doesn't keep me in the salon for more than an hour and a half. Even during my difficult transition from relaxed to natural, I always left with soft and manageable hair. I have seen Deja for many different services, including cut, color, style, sew-in, and various others. No matter what the "do", I always receive tons of compliments when I leave her salon. One of my favorite things about Deja is that she constantly creates hairstyles that are in alignment with my vision. I have gone to other stylists who imposed their ideas on me or simply failed to achieve the look that I was hoping for. I have never had this problem with Deja. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a talented, capable, and knowledgeable stylist. You will not be disappointed.

Patty Benda has worked for me for the last five years on a part-time basis. She is now ready to "spread her wings" and go into business for herself full-time. I will miss her professionalism, organizational skills and talent as a designer with my firm. She is especially gifted at putting rooms together (accessorizing, purchasing, staging,....). She has a great eye for design and I will miss the way she can "layer" a room with both new and existing pieces, making a home feel warm and welcoming, not like everything was purchased from the same store (too matchy-matchy). She really has that eclectic touch thats hard to teach - she just has it! I would highly recommend her for any interior project.

    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.
