We had the pleasure of having Miguel as our wedding DJ&MC. He was very thorough in the planning process for the music to play for the big event and order of events. He gives you a packet to go through and fill out which contains everything he needs to know. I really appreciated having that to help us with the process. The music was phenomenal and he was an excellent MC as well. Once we opened up the dance floor he turned on his fog machine and lights and everyone had a blast. I can't tell you how many people commented on how much fun they had and how great the music selection was. Couldn't have done it without Miguel. I highly recommend hiring him for your next event. You won't be disappointed 😊

Twists to Remember did a phenomenal job for my son's 5th birthday party! The ballon snack cups were a complete hit with the kids, and the full-body balloon costume was beyond amazing! The staff was very personable and professional; and the kids enjoyed interacting with the balloon artist as she twisted personalized creations for each of them. I would highly recommend booking Twists to Remember for your next party or event. You'll be glad you did!

Mary's help was invaluable to pull off our dream wedding. We hired her to manage several vendors at a less-than-organized venue, and she ended up going WAY above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect. Throughout the process, she was so calm and collected, always on top of it and helping us along the way. We really valued her experience and creativity when it came to solving issues that inevitably come up in event planning. Any problems that came up the on the wedding day, I didn't even know about until days afterward because everything ran so smoothly. It was clear to us that she really cared about the success of our event, and about us enjoying ourselves. In that, she succeeded for sure!

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 met Don at a memorial service in downtown Franklin, NC during the "Airing of the Quilts" festival in May of 2013. He immediately was very friendly and professional when asked to photograph our children who were performing at the festival. He was prompt in sending beautiful prints of the event. Also he was generous with our usage of the photos and presented us with a top- notch keepsake album.

P's and Q's has provided decorations and food for two birthday parties - one for my husband and one for me. The attention to detail was spot-on and the food was delicious! From the cakes to the appetizers, no detail was over-looked! I recommend P's and Q's as an exceptional event planner whether big or small.

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.

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.
