Wow! Life savers. Mary and Mallory came in at the last month of planning our big day and my stress went away within a week. 1) Mary went out of her way to serve me as the bride. Not only did she do her job, but she also extended prayer for our marriage and took a real interest in getting to know our dreams. 2) All loose ends were tied for me. I did not have to talk to vendors about timing, deliveries, locations, or finalizing plans! Mary did ALL of this for me. 3) Our wedding day was a breeze! ZERO hiccups. Mallory handled our Day Of coordination. If anything unexpected happened I sure did not know about it, the day was miraculously smooth from start to finish. Both of the women we worked with were unbelievably sweet too! They have a steady manner of getting things done, but a tender and loving approach. Exactly the environment I needed!

Overall Great Experience! We hired Kendra and Grand Expectations Events to help with wedding day coordination. She also helped a ton with finalizing our contracts, navigating all the vendor conversations and provided a bunch of great perspective/experience for all the questions we asked. She really made sure we could focus on each other during our big day. Timelines, vendors, etc. she jumped on it all. Communication was excellent from the moment we first talked. Everything went very smoothly and we'd definitely recommend her if you looking for some help!

Heather was everything we were looking for in a day of wedding coordinator. When a problem arose and we didn't have enough helium for all the balloons she handled it and we never even knew there was a problem! We all were able to relax and enjoy my sisters wedding from start to finish. She carried out our instructions to the letter and even thought of some details we'd over looked. She was sweet, and professional and I would highly, HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a stress free wedding or other event.

We hired Karen super last minute for day of coordination and she did a great job pulling our details together. She worked well with our vendors and the big day was wonderful. She put together a quick solution for us when our venue could not house our guest list that went over by 40. Her quick thinking and connections helped us have the perfect wedding. Thank you so much Karen!!!

    Hiring Heidi and her team was the best wedding decision my husband and I made. 44th & Luxe exceeded our expectations on so many levels. I usually like to do everything myself but I wanted to enjoy the day, as well as my family, without stressing. When I first spoke with Heidi we instantly clicked she listened to all of my ideas and helped me with suggestions throughout the process . My only regret was not allowing her to plan the whole thing! She did the most wonderful job, a true professional from start to finish. She was organized, flexible and available when I needed her. I really appreciated her patience and kindness working with me and also my husbands quirky ideas;) I recommend her services 100% she made my dream wedding come true, you won’t regret hiring her! Thank you so much Heidi!!

    We had a small formal wedding that spanned over a fairly large area of an outdoor venue. Zach became available on very short notice after a cancellation. He did everything we asked of him and many things more that we didn't ask of him. He and his wife were true professionals and will recommend them to any and everyone I pass looking for DJ services. Thanks again guys for making our big day a HUGE success!

    Kathy made my dream wedding a reality! Her resources seem unlimited, as do her ideas and talent. I didn't want to worry about anything on my wedding day and I didn't. She had everything under control and even found an amazing work-around when rain ruined our sparkler-filled exit! I cannot recommend her her highly enough!

    I hired Debra to be a day of coordinator and I am so glad that I did! We had our first meeting and went through everything a couple months before the wedding. She as always available to answer any questions that I had and helped to smooth out the details when needed. She was there on the wedding day to let vendors in the building to get set up. During the cocktail and reception she took care of making sure everything was how it needed to be. Wedding morning my friends were wondering why I wasn't stressed or nervous at all. I know that part of my calm was knowing that Debbie knew what I wanted and was going to do her best to make sure everything went off without a problem AND IT DID!

    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.
