Nick and his team of professionals were out of this world amazing from start to finish on the day of our Wedding. They were there on time and Nick had made me feel at ease from the moment I met him through Thumbtack. He is an amazing DJ, Entertainer, Businessman and overall wonderful person to be around! Nick made me feel so comfortable from the time we started communicating through Thumbtack that once I connected with him my decision was made to go with him and his team of professionals for my Wedding day for DJ services, Photography and Videography. Look no further ladies and gentleman!!! If you want the experience of a lifetime with someone who is going to be attentive to your needs and make you feel like the King and Queen of your day than hire Nick!!! He is professional yet warm, talented and experienced in the realm of DJ services as well as entertainment. He sang Frank Sinatra at my wedding and he was a head turner… Don’t let the most amazing experience of a lifetime be taken care of by anyone else. I truly cannot say enough to express my pleasure and amazement with Nick and his team and how they made my dream wedding come to life. Thank you Nick! You’re the best!

for me, there were several things that were important in this party. The food, obviously! but also the guidance and planning that is a part of a party. We did a casual wedding for 120 ppl at a difficult location, under very challenging conditions. Ellen and her staff were very limited for setup time, so more time would have let her set up all the grand ideas that she had. There were points during the planning where I felt Ellen was more exited about the affair than I was! she was that invested. She worked closely with me, guiding me throughout, ready with ideas, keeping me focused to give me the best value possible while developing a vision! We wanted an elegant and eclectic brunch ,with lots of variety but keeping it to a reasonable price point. I look forward to working with her again, maybe I'll cater Passover this year!!!

I hired Angel Waitress service to be staff for my wedding on 7/1/17 and I am very happy I did. Nancy was great leading up to the event, and even though she didn't staff herself to work that day, she still came to make sure everything was OK. I loved that she said she takes pride in her work and that really shows. The woman who worked the event were great and I would certainly hire this company again. I'm in the business as well, and though it was a big day for me, I could see how seamlessly they were taking care of things! Thank you Angel Waitress service for helping my special day go so smoothly!

We worked with Katherine Fonsella from DeCicco events and cuisine and she was WONDERFUL. We were planning a pre-wedding dinner for about 100 people in the Tarrytown area, but we live in Northern California. We did not know any venues or caterers or suppliers. Katherine helped us find a great, unusual loft venue, arranged all the decor, tables, lighting, and set up the catering from DeCiccos. The staff were excellent, the food was very good, everything went off perfectly. We are so appreciative of all that Katherine did to make our event wonderful!

I cannot say enough great things about Adrienn and my excellent experience. She not only tailored my gown excellently, but I also purchased another gown from her for a future event. My daughter also found 2 fabulous dresses too. Anyone who needs any alterations, dress design, wedding gowns, bridesmaid dress, etc. You cannot go wrong with Adrienn. Highly recommend!! Great style and fabulous experience.

I can not describe the quality and service of Sunflowers Catering and Event Planning. Chef Laura and her staff are very organized and personable. From the very first phone call to the last hour of my parents 70th wedding anniversary party the service was beyond our expectations. Sunflowers works with your budget and provides the 5 star service and quality at 3 star prices that they claim to provide. We will use them again no questions asked. Thank you for making my parents milestone anniversary a very memorable one.

I've had the pleasure to work with We Make Fun event company and Anastasiya for my recent wedding. Not only was Anastasiya caring, approachable and understanding she was also very professional, polished and sophisticated. This truly reflected in her work and I felt very comfortable with her style/suggestions. She's a fast thinker and multitasker yet makes it look so easy/graceful. If you're planning a wedding (or any event) she should be the first person you contact for planning and/or day of coordination. I highly recommend and suggest you get her on your team asap!

Anna was perfect. I hired her for my wedding last night as a surprise to my husband . And one of our friend hired another belly dancer for us as a surprise so we had 2 different belly dancer and Anna danced second. So i was a little nervous cause I thought it might be a little to much and boring. But she made us to forget the first dancer. She was smiling all night long. Visited all tables and took care of everyone individually. I have no idea how she did it but end off the her dance all guests were on the dance floor and having fun. She is very beautiful and talented. Everyone loved her. Definitely recommend her. Thank you Anna

Dave was amazing! We hired him for our wedding that we had at home with 40 guests. I can't believe he was able to make such an abundant buffet of appetizers that was also absolutely delicious. His crab cakes were amazing and disappeared in a flash. I was actually upset I only got the chance to have one! His hummus and eggplant was so good we were digging around for more leftovers. The meatballs stole the show and in second place was the cider braised bacon. People were eating well until 2 in the morning! He was also so helpful in helping us set up the food. I don't think that's necessarily part of his job but he saw that we were a little stressed trying to get everything ready before the ceremony. My Made of honor wasn't even dressed yet and he helped her move our kitchen table into the dining room! Really a great guy who takes pride in his food and in his services. Dave was also very good about getting back to us, answering questions and making sure we had a nice mix of appetizers to please all our guests (even the kids). He was very professional from start to finish. I highly recommend him because you will feel reassured and I feel he will only give you his best.

Marianna and her assistant were present at my wedding on October 16th at Princess Manor in Brooklyn. From many months before the wedding, Marianna has been on top of things. She had an excellent way of keep everyone calm and engaged in the wedding experience. Very pleasant. I would definitely recommend her for many more events.

Rica is definitely a professional. I had my hair and makeup trial with her last week and I am confident I am in good hands for my wedding (which is next week!!). Before the trial, I sent her pics and videos of what I was looking for so she was prepared. At the trial, she gave me her expert opinion on what would/would not work and then worked her magic. I'm always a bit weary about having a professional do my makeup because I'm of Asian descent and most non-Asian MUAs don't know how to work with Asian features. I have to say... Rica impressed me! She did some research before the trial and then we worked with each other to get the ideal look for me for the wedding. Rica is also such an honest, trustworthy person. I could tell from reading her reviews and speaking to her via email and on the phone even before we met that she takes pride in what she does and she has experience too. Can't wait to see the final hair and makeup result on my wedding day!! I will post another review after the wedding!

My husband and I decided to plan our own wedding, because we thought keeping it low key would just be super easy and doable. We were completely wrong, duh, and in dire need of help. After speaking to several Day of Coordinators, my husband found Brittney and thank goodness that he did. Brittney was not only a life saver but she transformed our raw empty venue into a magical evening. She is a visionary -- our wedding venue was Cynthia Rowley's showroom (one giant space, no rooms). We decided to have our ceremony and reception all in one place but had no idea how to go about it. Brittney's extensive experience eased our fears as she came up with a detailed concept to smoothly transition through events. If there were any issues that occurred with our vendors, we had no idea about them because Brittney took care of them from the get go. She's very detail-oriented and we love that about her! From creating spreadsheets, blueprints to emails and phone calls, she took care of absolutely everything without any issues. She also made herself available to us at all times, more than we ever expected. If you are a nervous wreck like I was, you can count on Brittney to check up on you with a smile, and towards the end of the night, with a plate of food (thank goodness for that!) We absolutely recommend Brittney and her wedding services. She's the sweetest, most efficient , professional and highly dependable to get the job the done. We loved our wedding day and would not change a single moment of it.

Even within short notice, MIZDIs staff curated my birthday gathering and coordinated all aspects. It was a incredibly successful evening. They exceeded expectations . Every attendee has a exceptional time. The party was full of jubilation and the space was transformed. I would highly recommend them. The owner , Debra has great attention to detail; I mentioned all my favorite foods, and she made lamb sliders , and she and a chef custom made a black strawberry cake. I look forward to using MIZDI for my mom's upcoming bday and retirement party.

Planning my wedding was incredibly strenuous, so I hired Ani as the day-of wedding coordinator. She took care of everything, including handling a few problems my bridesmaids had (I didn't even know about it until the next day). She made everyone feel comfortable and did a great job.

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.
