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!

Ellen Deluise catered a wedding reception for me for 150 people. I selected a traditional menu but Ellen provided several other menu options to choose from. She was very professional, easy to work with and was quick to respond to phone calls. The quality of the food and presentation were excellent. I would definitely hire her again in the future.

Nancy is phenomenal. We wish we had Nancy 24 hours a day. She definitely made me feel at ease and went far beyond bartending duties. I under estimated all that was needed to be done for our daughters Baptism but Nancy put an "S" on her chest and handled everything. We are planning another event soon an Nancy will be our go to person. This time we want her staff as well. Love you Nancy.

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!

I'm working with Adrienn to alter my wedding dress. I'm planning to wear my Mom's dress but have the long sleeves and turtleneck turned into a jacket. Walking into the shop I knew right away Adrienn is extremely talented, the samples of her work are beautiful! But the level of creativity and enthusiasm she had when I told her what I wanted to do definitely confirmed I was in the right place! She is working hard now but I'll definitely share the finished product :)

The Bella Couture Team was outstanding. They took care of every little detail including things we would not have thought of . They absolutely were the reason our special day was so special. They were responsive to every need and concern and were constantly putting our minds at ease when the panic started to set in. Every time we had a concern they immediately addressed it and put our minds at ease. We could not have asked for a better planner for our wedding. They are truly amazing!

Brittney is the dream planner/day-of coordinator to have. She is very passionate and considerate, and has rich experience in handling all aspects of a wedding. My wedding day events could not run more smoothly with her assistance. More importantly, she is a person with a great heart who cares about and connects well with people. I will definitely recommend her to anyone.

We can't say enough great things about Stephanie. She was a true life saver from day one. Stephanie was very accessible and responded with lightening speed to emails/calls/texts at all different hours. She was always professional and friendly and gave great advice. Stephanie definitely has an eye for style and worked great with all of our wedding vendors. My wedding planning experience became stress-free once Stephanie came on board. I recommend her to any bride-to-be or anyone planning an event. We look forward to working with her in the future!

The luckiest part to have a good wedding is to find the right wedding planner. Ani is the one that you cannot miss. A good friend can try to assist you for the day and the plan, but sometimes more help or ideas you get and the busier you get because most people do not know about a wedding. Ani is the one who will turn to be your best friend and think in your shoes, at the same time, she knows what she’s doing and making everything goes as smooth as you can imagine. Ani is smart, sharp, calm, warm-hearted, and sweet. She gives you the peaceful mind that nothing will go wrong because she’s around to help you all she can. She gets things done and is always on top of her game. She’s punctuate and professional. She’s also creative to make your wedding unique and special. She’s flexible for anything you ask for the wedding. So many things could go out of expectations. And there you have Ani who comes the earliest and leaves the latest. She’s willing to listen and cover all the holes. She’s a great communicator. No matter the priest, or a huge wedding party or vendors, girls or kids, everyone loves Ani. She’s very patient. You just love her and thank God she’s there for you. She cheers for you and feels every moment of your big day. If you picture your wedding like all the movies full of romance and fairy tales, then you must have a wedding planner, you must have Ani. Because the real wedding is like a war, you have many things to do but you cannot do on your own, you don’t get enough sleep, you cannot have enough time talk to everyone you want to, there is so much crisis you have to deal with, you plan so well but everything still goes wrong. People could easier get frustrated and even a nervous breakdown for the mixed emotions of the wedding day, happiness, sadness, or you are touched, or you miss the people who cannot be there to share. The wedding day is hard, as beautiful as it could be, but I learned the lesson from my engagement party that I will have a wedding planner for my party. A year and half of preparation for this big day, it has to be perfect. Then, I have Ani and I am so thrilled I found her, she contributed so much to my perfect day. I walked into the reception and everything was exactly I wanted. She just knows, without too much explanation, without the back and forth. If you want to have regrets and more enjoyment for the biggest day of your life, then contact Ani. Her value is priceless.

Novaoriginal Events was the event designer for my wedding last year. I had seen pictures of her work and decided to trust her with the most important day of my life. From the décor to the flowers to the lighting to the cake, even the dinner menus, it was more than I could have even imagined. She planned every detail which took alot of stress off me! She took my vision and turned it into such a flawless luxury event my family is still raving about it. She was very warm and professional and responsive to what I wanted. So of course I turned to her again to design my baby shower this past July. Again it was a gorgeous 5 star event beyond my expectations. I would recommend her for any event. See my pics below! I'm still in awe.

First off ours wasn't a typical event. My son was married last year in Seattle and this was the NJ celebration for all those who couldn't make the trip. Second, I contacted Marcia exactly a month prior to the date. Not much time at all. And I had never worked with a planner before so I wasn't sure what to expect. Third, other than centerpieces and favors they had no clue what they wanted and Marcia helped me pull ideas together. The number of changes that took place in the last 5 days alone - people dropping out, people deciding to attend, a change of the entire floor plan which meant moving the DJ and changing table numbers - was making me crazy but she kept telling me it would be ok. On the day of while setting up our wine bottle centerpieces she realized we hadn't sent enough flowers and still managed to improvise and make everything beatiful. Because they wanted open seating I wanted to reserve 6 tables for family. She not only greeted all our guests (because we were arriving later) but also managed to pull off the reserved tables with a list of names to seat at those tables. When we arrived everything was perfect, everyone loved it. I was able to just enjoy our friends and family and have a good time celebrating without any worries. When the party was ending she and Amanda were very quickly breaking down and packing up everything that would come back to me. This review was long because I wanted to get across how much she did in just one month. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a party planner, wedding planner, decorator. You'll be happy you did.

SO, I always dreamed of having my wedding at the Chateau Briand in long island and when i called they gave me this ridiculous price for the day. I decided to get an wedding planner because i assume they know how to talk to this venue places. I was reccommended by my friend who worked with k.f.events. When we first started speaking and meeting she gave me a few different options of venue, but my heart was set on the Chateau. I dont how she did it but they was able to give me a better price and we immediately booked the venue. my wedding was amazing. she had send me this link to write a review and with honor ill write a review.

    May I begin by saying this lady right here does it all . Not only does she organize parties, she bakes , decorates , and she is also a MC. She literally made my baby shower worth wild within a budget . She isn’t money hungry at all . I told her what my budget was, gave her my ideas, she also added her own ideas which was great and of course since I had pregnancy brain at the time her input was beyond helpful . I don’t normally believe in party planners because I always have that “ I can do it myself “ attitude but when your actually sitting down and trying to get your thoughts together and u just have a brain fart, you become discouraged and then have that” I don’t even wanna have this event anymore “ you need someone like Dawn who keeps you stress free at all times . Again Dawn thank you so much for my beautiful baby shower . I will be contacting you back again for my wedding plans ( if i ever get married 😒😒)😂😂

    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.

    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 does it cost for a wedding planner?

    Wedding planning is a full-time job — unless you hire a professional to handle the hard work for you. The cost for a wedding planner will depend on the level of service you desire. The least expensive wedding planner option is day-of coordination, then partial service, then full-service.  

    The national average cost for wedding planning is between $990 and $1,300. Costs are greatly affected by region, with rural or smaller-town wedding planners often far more affordable than planners in higher-cost cities. Here are some examples of the various levels of wedding planning and their potential average costs:

    • Day-of-wedding coordination: $800-$1,700. Day-of services can include the planner finalizing all details, creating a timeline, confirming vendors and overseeing all setup, day-of activities, and cleanup. The couple does all the front-end planning and contracts all the vendors. Time commitment could be about 15-25 hours, depending on pricing.
    • Partial service: $1,500-$3,800. Here the planner works with the couple from the beginning, helping contract vendors, creating a timeline, and overseeing all details of day-of execution. Time commitment could be about 30-60 hours, depending on package and pricing.
    • Full service: $3,500-$8,000 or more. Here the professional handles all wedding and planning details including working on design, securing rentals, getting the venue and vendors, and handling complete execution of the event. Time commitment could be 50-150 hours or more, depending on package and pricing.
    • Consulting: $50-$150 per hour for design, vendor, reception and other wedding planning consultation.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
