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.

We hired 2 bartenders to serve drinks (beer, wine & 2 specialty cocktails) for a corporate happy hour. The staff was very helpful, friendly and professional. And the drinks were great! Staff was also very helpful with planning the event at the last minute. We would definitely hire them again!

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

We had a limited budget and less than a week to organize a business event for Approximately 50 people. Shawana pulled it off, providing excellent service and food in a very short window. Would highly recommend her and her company.

I honestly can't say enough great things about Mariage Blanc Designs Event Planning. With only so little time to plan my shower, Stephanie did such an amazing job. I knew an event planner was a necessity. I met with others but I couldn't afford them with my budget. Mariage Blanc Designs was the last Planner I called and I didn't even feel the need to search for more after speaking with Stephanie. All of my worries were put at ease, from that very first call. Stephanie had incredible communication skills and a way of making me feel like I was included in planning my shower like I wanted to be. She took all my ideas into consideration and made my dream/vision come true. We didnt have to worry about anything, from researching vendors to linen ideas, Stephanie handled it all. As well, listening skills, coupled with her creative eye and attention to detail, helped with turning my visions and dream baby shower into reality. My boyfriend was not so happy about hiring an event planner for our baby shower and as soon as he stepped into the location his mind completely changed and he couldn't stop talking about how beautiful everything looked. All my guests complimented me about how amazing everything look. Steph and her staff came in and turned the place into a jungle theme shower of my dreams, Literally! I am more than happy with the results in every way possible! I cannot wait to use her services again for my future events. Thank you Steph, you and your team ROCK! (:

Trisha was such a pleasure to work with. She was professional, worked with my budget, paid attention to every single detail of the event, and was there for me when I needed her. Trisha's work is excellent. Everyone at the bridal shower was impressed, especially my sister, the bride-to-be. I would love to work with Trisha again, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great event planner.

Gayle assisted me with my daughter's Bat Mitzvah. I needed her at the event site to set-up the decorations and oversee the vendors, including the caterer. She also coordinated a brunch for me at my home the next day. She supervised the caterer and the set-up for me that day so I could relax and enjoy my guests. She is reliable, creative, and a wonderful addition to my party needs! What Went Well: Gayle was extremely organized and professional. The B'nai Mitzvah set-up had a tight time schedule and she had everything ready on time. She was very responsive and everything went very smoothly. I would highly recommend Gayle for all your event planning needs.

Lori did an excellent job creating the floral arrangements for my wedding. I highly recommend her. She was professional throughout the entire process and answered any questions that we had with no problems. She even worked with my event planner to adjust the plans after we had to add additional tables the day of the wedding. God bless you.

Inger and his team were awesome! I hired him for our yearly holiday business party and it was nothing short of festive. They were attentive, creative and a pleasure to work with. It made the hassle of hosting a party so stress free. Inger took care of all of the coordinating and the decor was beautiful. Everyone loved the decorations and centerpieces. I will definitely hire him for my next event and would recommend him to anyone looking for a well rounded event coordinator.

Andrea M. Events surpassed my expectations for my baby shower this year. When I initially met with Andrea, I was very indecisive about what I wanted for my party. She turned the limited ideas I had into a blissful grand baby shower. On the day of the event, Andrea and her team was prompt for the set-up. The decor was phenomenal; it all matched perfectly for what I ultimately envisioned after our meeting. What I most enjoyed was the sweet station. You could tell that Andrea took time to find the best candies, jars and desserts to make a picture perfect set up. I would definitely use her company again for another event.

I was looking for gifts for my bridal party and sought the help of someone who had experience with creating unique items. I reached out to 2 Less Fish Events & Favors after learning they created the hair ties I wanted for my bachelorette weekend. After sending a photo of something I liked, Kristen immediately got back to me with design and color choices. She mentioned that her custom hair tie sets came with 3 per card, but when I received my package, she had added an extra to each card which was very unexpected and made my day.

I was the maid of honor for my best friend's wedding and was tasked to organize the bridal shower and I live long distance. I totally entrusted Xquizit Decor to work their magic and I am so thankful that I did! Linda and her team totally transformed the lackluster event space to everything I had imagined, bringing my vision of a Garden/Kentucky Derby themed shower to life. The decorations were fantastic and some of them were even personalized for the bride. Linda was professional, innovative, responsive, honest, and prices were very reasonable. I couldn't have been happier. I highly recommend Xquizit Decor!

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.

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. 

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.
