Having Aneesa and Nathan Glines as our wedding planners were definitely the best decision we made for our wedding! I am a very organized person, so I was skeptical at first if having a wedding planner would be worth while--but it was beyond worth it. Aneesa is so professional, yet friendly, energetic and sweet; as well as, super organized and flexible when things change. There were so many details to tend to and we didn't have to worry about any of it. The wedding was perfect and beautiful - she totally understood the look we were going for and made it happen. Her suggestions, ideas, and her follow-through lived up to every expectation I had and her ideas were more than I could have ever dreamed. They are absolutely the best! . If you are looking for a wedding planner - hire Aneesa! And her team - they were awesome as well! A huge thank you to Harmony Weddings and Events.

For all brides planning your wedding, the one thing I would highly recommend is hire a month of/day of coordinator. Trust me when I say this, it will be the BEST decision/gift you could give to yourself on the wedding day. My husband and I are very hands-on and organized, we wanted to plan our wedding ourselves as we wanted to incorporate every element of our personalities, our relationship, and have that reflected in our wedding. We sourced all of our own decorations (frames, glass bottles, luggage, sweetheart table, sweetheart bench, etc). However, we knew we needed help on the day of. Da’Nice helped us execute it. From our first meeting with her, she exuded so much grace, knowledge about the wedding industry, and had this wonderful calming aura about her. We met and talked for 2 hours, and she showed us what types of services she can provide for month of/day of coordination - she gave us a peak at the timeline she creates for the wedding day, and how she stays in touch with our vendors the month before. Throughout the process, she was very responsive to any questions I had leading up to the big day. The month of our wedding, she was in constant communication with us. She is quick to reply, and extremely helpful! Da’Nice is simply amazing, and I wish I could write down all the things she's helped us with! On our wedding day, she and her team were prompt, always there to field any questions from family members, friends, and vendors. They set up the reception venue so perfectly, and was able to utilize all of the decorations I had set out.

Our wedding took place Aug 9, 2014. It rained and poured all day and we just weren't sure how things where going to turn out but Cindy had a plan B ready and it was excellent. The decor of the reception hall was AMAZING. It was everything we imagined and more. She kept everything in line and organized. My wife and I had to do nothing. She had it all under control. If you're looking for a great wedding planner look no further than Cindy Harrington. She is the BEST!

OMG...is really all I can say! Derrick with Elizabethtown Florist is awesome. You won't find a better floral designer or event coordinator/planner anywhere! From the first consultation with him and his mother Ruth...I knew they were the ones for me. I told him my ideas and he basically took it from there. He would send me pics of things and it was like he knew just exactly what I wanted. I told him I considered myself...different and unique. So he suggested that we do the ceremony in the center of the building at Lu Mil Winery and then he told me about this "lounge theme" design he had for someone's wedding but had no got anyone to try it yet. He should me some pics and I was wowed! I told him I wanted to do that. It was absolutely beautiful on that day... From the canopy with material draped from it to the lounge area, the bouquets to the arrangement of the tables and the seating for the ceremony. After I walked in all I could do is smile and say OMG. I could have cried! He made my wedding day a day I will never forget! Derrick truly went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for me. He exceeded my expectations by far!!!!

    As an amateur in 2013, Lauren helped me plan my wedding. She was a natural! She was attentive to details, on task and helped to answer some questions I had about the process. She's professional, easy to get along with and can still get the job done. I'd recommend her to anyone in need of an event planner!

    Brandy is a fantastic wedding planner and designer. She was able to help us select our vendors and helped with every aspect of the wedding planning process. We were able to actually relax on the wedding day and walk into a beautiful wedding - totally worth every dollar. Would use High Cotton over and over again!

    I can not say enough about how great my experience was! I found Nicole on Thumbtack and after reviewing her website and speaking to her I KNEW it was a good fit. From the time Nicole accepted the Job the size of my party almost tripled what I originally told her. Never did she complain, never did she waiver, never did she discourage me or back out! Nicole took my disorganized vision and turned it into an amazing family fun event. Very helpful, personal, organized, detail oriented and prompt! I would use her again and recommend her to anyone :-)

      Makiba is the most upbeat, creative and organized person to work with. Her outgoing personality always renewed my excitement about my upcoming day each time I met with her. She is extremely driven and her high level of motivation only encouraged me even more to get stuff done off my never-ending check list. She stayed on top of me to get stuff done! But that was necessary because if she didn't, a lot of stuff probably would have been very last minute - or not done at all. I had a handful of DIY projects in mind to do - but I kept procrastinating. If it wasn't for Makiba, they honestly would not have gotten done at all! I'm so thankful she helped me with (or either did them herself!) my DIY projects. They added a really nice personal touch to my wedding and reception that would have been missing otherwise. I'm so thankful she helped me as much as she did. I could not imagine not having her there the day of my wedding - she handled so many behind-the-scene tasks that I was not aware of and probably would have stressed me out if I did! I cannot express how much I appreciate everything she did before and most of all, the day of my wedding. If you are a bride - you HAVE to get a planner to help you, even if it is just the day of assistance. Makiba will not let you down! Not only is she professional, but she is caring and has a personality that makes you feel like family.

      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.
