Sara worked with us for an event at the Bridgewater Lord & Taylor. She was on time, incredibly professional, and ready for anything! With such a large scale event, there is no guarantee if there will be one child or one hundred. She was prepared for either! It was wonderful seeing the joy on the children's faces as they chose their face paint style from her book. This is also one of the best priced face painters I have ever worked for. I really feel as though we got a great bargain for our event. We would absolutley hire again. Thanks so much Sara!

DeCicco's recently catered an office Holiday Breakfast for us. Both Luisa DeCicco and Event Planner, Francesca Sgammato were amazing to work with. They made sure we had all we wanted (and more), worked through numerous menu changes and kept us within our budget. The food was abundant and delicious and delivered hot and on time. We will definitely use DeCicco's again.

Chef Melissa and her team provided private chef services for lunch for 15 of my private clients across a two-day retreat event in New York City. Even though it was solely lunch, it was three courses which she started with a custom beverage. She provided glasses, flatware and dinnerware. She also provided a printed menu for each person for each day's menu. A full on experience. My clients LOVED her presence. I would like to also mention, two days before the event, the venue I booked had a fire and we had to move at the last minute. Chef Melissa took it all in stride, changed the menu slightly and kept right on going - a testimony to her professionalism and experience. If you want a positive experience, pay for the best.

Peter was super professional, super nice and very easy to communicate with. From the early stages where we worked on the menu - Peter was very supportive and open minded to all my demands (10 people, lots of food allergies to handle) and through the whole event - he showed on time with all the equipment and left the kitchen tidy and cleaner then he received it ;) Thruogh the event Peter was amazing, he served and explained about all the dishes (which were AMAZING) and paid attention to all the small details such as the visibility and serving. It was HUGE success and my guests kept talking about it 2 days after the event. I would definitely use he's services again

Bella Couture helped plan my wedding and provided alot of creative ideas to make the day special. They are very well organized and dealt with all my vendors. I was always secure in knowing that all the details would be taken of. The day of the wedding we were able to really enjoy the party knowing that they were present and watching the entire flow of the event. Our guests said the wedding was "perfect."

I don’t usually dole out 5 star ratings but it is well deserved here! Eleni was a monumental part of planning my son’s first birthday party. It was a football themed party for approximately 100 people. Despite some challenges with vendors, Eleni out did herself with planning and decorating the space, in addition to making and setting up the items for the dessert table! Everyone loved it and I received so many compliments! Eleni was a pleasure to work with, she was super responsive and always kept in touch with updates (no matter what time of the day or night) I am especially grateful to have had her by my side throughout the event to give me gentle reminders to keep us on schedule with my specific timeline! Eleni’s event planning services are reasonable and I would highly recommend her for any event planning, decorating and dessert table needs! I cannot thank her enough for the excellent job! Shami

Without Brittney our wedding would not have happened! Her help as our Day Of Coordinator ensured that every detail of the wedding was handled efficiently and perfectly. Knowing that Brittney was making sure that every vendor knew where to go and how to set our things up made it so much easier for us to focus on getting ready and enjoying our day. Once the wedding was under way she continued to keep everything and everyone running smoothly and made sure that every planned event went off without a hitch. Even though she wasn't acting as our wedding planner, she was always available to help answer any of our questions and offer her advice while we solidified our arrangements in the weeks leading up to the wedding. Her fun and positive attitude was so helpful in keeping us sane as well! I can't overstate enough how integral Brittney was to making our wedding as perfect as it was!

Agnes is the best. She is very hardworking, humble , passionate about the work she does and full of innovative ideas when it comes to event decor. Me and my wife were looking for decorator for long time for her baby shower event. We were looking for someone who treat the event like if it was their own.We probably met 10 different event decorators before we met Agnes . Almost all of the decorator we met before Agnes had no new ideas and very expensive respect to what our ask was. They would all show us the booklet and ask us to choose any one of the theme which is what we hated the most. Event like baby shower comes only once in life and we wanted to make it memorable for our lifetime and it had to be unique. Agnes on the other hand is completely different with great positive energy. She listened to us on our first meeting and she virtually showed us on how she can make our dreams in to reality. She was full of unique and beautiful ideas. we decided to let her handle our event decor right on first meeting. She just didn't stop there. She came up with more unique ideas along the way and even surprised us with more on the day of baby shower. All most all of the guest that we had complemented about the decor. I personally cared more that she put a big smile of the face of my wife. Me and My wife were very happy with her work and wouldn't hesitate to trust her for any of our other event.

Michelle is the very best! Her knowledge, enthusiasm, love for her career - second to none! if you want your event done right, then you need Michelle. I am truly grateful I found her for my wedding. Without her it would not have been as successful. Her kind, uderstanding and caring heart is what I loved most. Not to mention her hard work and dedication. She is always on top of her game and knows what to do or where to turn to. She has the best vendors and they love her, which makes them love her clients. Michelle and Knot Just Weddings is a win-win - hands down! Thanks Michelle!

I had an amazing time in my baby shower thanks to RêveCraft Events. Pooja & Dhara the owners of RêveCraft Events are so nice and creative, I personally really appreciate them for being patience with me. They really made my vision come true. The theme of my party was Storybook Theme and they really had some amazing ideas too where they also helped me organize my event. I was a little worried that it would come out expensive but their rates were very reasonable. They really were so accommodating and really good with actually working with you. I would highly recommend booking your event with them.

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.

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.
