Having never used Thumbtack before I had no idea what to expect. Within one hour of registering my request, I had responses from three caterers. I chose the services of Personal Chef Lisa Pucci Delgado. I was interested in drop off catering for my daughter's baby shower. This was one of the best choices I've ever made. The food was delicious. Lisa was helpful and professional from start to finish. All of our guests were extremely impressed and wonderfully fed. All of my expectations were exceeded and I would definitely hire Chef Delgado again and enthusiastically recommend her for any event you have planned.

Lisa was on time and the food was great. She worked with me to create an affordable kid friendly menu for my mother and son dance. She even took time out to help me set up a few tables for my event. I would recommend Mantua Catering to others for sure! Thanks Lisa!

Jeff's awsome food.

Without a doubt the best Southern-style cooking I have ever had. Jeff was able to create a menu for my party that was delicious and plentiful. The first thing he served was the gator bites seasoned just right and fried to perfection. The main course was smoked chicken and beef brisket which was tender and moist with a mild smoke flavor. Your taste buds explode with flavor as soon as you take a bite. The chicken was great, but everyone could not get enough of the brisket. I have had brisket several times and know how difficult it is to smoke a brisket without drying it out. However, Jeff was very attentive and meticulous to ensure it came out just right. I think it is the dry rub that makes it so good. He personally creates all his seasonings and dry rubs by blending several secret ingredients. The side dish people really enjoyed was the five cheese macaroni. It was outstanding very creamy and flavorful. He also smokes a variety of seafood as well, my favorite is the Ahi tuna. I have eaten his food at many parties and events. I have always had very good service and great food. He serves at your home or brings the food to you. Jeff is very professional and has always done a tremendous job.

I would like very much to thank Jenny and Sandy from Elegantz Eventz for a perfect graduation party for my daughter. During the consultation Jenny turned to my daughter and took the time to really get to know who she is and what her passions are. As a result, we had a party that was unique and perfectly tailored to my daughter. Execution of the plan was flawless, because when we did hit speed bumps Jenny and her team were quick to find great alternatives in a helpful, positive and fun manner. This experience has made me a believer in the party planner model! Thank you again Elegantz Eventz for a once in a lifetime event.....until we meet again!❤️

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.
