Carmen Connor and her servers contributed to a lovely wedding for our daughter. Carmen was warm and personable to work with and plan the event and had many great ideas and suggestions and made the planning process enjoyable and very affordable. The food was highly praised by our wedding guests and the service her staff provided was also praised! We told her what we wanted, she prepared and delivered it above our expectations and if you have a wedding or other event you want catered efficiently, professionally, and well worth the price you will not go wrong using Carmen at An Affair to Remember!

Liane and her team were beyond amazing. Bartenders were prompt, friendly, dressed neat and tidy, and went above and beyond our expectations. Liane was very helpful and you could tell she knew her stuff after our first conversation. We met to go over the logistics and she asked every question you would hope an event coordinator would ask, she even asked about some things we hadn't thought about - which is incredibly helpful when you're planning a wedding on your own - it was a huge sigh of relief to have something taken off of your plate and know it would be handled exactly as you wanted. I had tons of things on my mind on my wedding day that I was worried about, Liane and her team were not one of those things. You'll be hard-pressed to find an event planner with the superb level of service that Liane offers. 10/10, would highly recommend.

I love to throw parties and ever since I met this young lady life has been so much easier. She has worked with me on small projects and parties and also my daughter's fairytale style wedding. We are already planning my other daughter's sweet 16th and she's only 14. She does the most creative work I've ever seen. This was our latest event on a limited budget

I cannot thank Nieves Martino enough for the fabulous job she did planning and executing our event. Not only does she have creative ideas on the front end, she pays attention to all the details in execution. I have hired event planners for a few events in the past and am very particular. Nieves far exceeded my expectations and I will use her for all my events in the future.

Amber Is amazing! She planned every aspect of our event so that all we had to do is meet with the vendors if needed. I also had her design our invitations, setup our website, handle RSVPs, and guest accommodations coming from out of town. This saved us so much time since we are both so busy with work. She also kept the pricing low so we didn't start off our new life together with losing a huge chunk of money. The month out she was even more incredible with coordinating all the vendors and making sure they were all on a timeline to walking the venue with us to ensure everything was setup how we envisioned. The day of I felt ZERO stress knowing she was handling vendor setup and guiding the wedding party. Everyone had a great time and I thank Amber for that and her amazing vendors. I am referring everyone to her and have already booked her to setup both my husband's Holiday Party and my birthday party. Cannot say enough great things about her and so happy I found her. Trust me you want to work with her!

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.
