We recently catered a company family picnic for which Tammy was the event planner. I have been catering since 2005 and have catered many such events, but have yet to see one put together as nicely as the job Tammy did for this company's event. There were multiple games for families and children to participate in, along with a jumper for the kids and face painting for everyone. There were fabulous raffle prizes and the tables were very nicely decorated. She communicated her needs well; and, other than some wind, the event was spectacular. If you are looking for an outstanding event planner, Tammy of O Factor Events is your person!

    What a treat to work with DJGroovemaker! I had the most positive experience, and would recommend him 100%! The event was a wine label release party that took place on a warm August evening lit by full super moon light! The magical energy and environment was dramatically enhanced by the tent, lighting, sound and music of DJGroovemaker. During the set up of the event when I was running around putting the final touches on displays and tables, I was actually moved to tears hearing DJ Groovemakers music in the back ground and seeing the gorgeous tent set up, I had this epiphany moment, realizing that this was my vision coming together, something that couldn't have been accomplished without Terry and his beautiful partner Tamara. Every experience with them has been a good one, their smiles and positive energy are contagious, if you have the opportunity to work with these talented and genuine people, consider yourself lucky, I definitely do.

    Premium Catering Service. was used by Karly and Jose Corona June 23,2005 for their wedding. It was an out-door affair at the Overland House in Portland Or. The ceremony and reception were held in the backyard. After the ceremony the guests were escorted to the front yard and served hors doeuvres while the crew set up the reception in the back. Guests returned to a lovely sight -white clothed tables set with flowers and candles, lights twinkling in the trees, soft music - everything Karly and Jose had dreamed of. The buffet was set up and food artfully arranged - all the dishes the bride and groom had requested and it was all delicious. The caterers were all attentive, efficient and very pleasant. Given they did not have a rehearsal for this event everything went very smoothly and was so much fun thanks to all their great work. While the bride and groom enjoyed their lovely reception and their guests the caterers cleaned up impeccably and quietly stole away. I would highly recommend Premium Catering Service for any function large or small - they will do a great job. Janet Nesbitt (Karlys Grandmother).

    While MaKenna has been pursuing her wedding planning and coordination business for a year and a half at full throttle, her poise and professionalism makes it seem as though she has 20 years of experience in the business! She has a calming demeanor that is exactly what I needed as a stressed bride with a busy job and little time to plan my own wedding. We started working with her a year before our event and she was there to help coach us every step of the away as questions arose. She returns emails, texts and phone calls promptly, puts care into every bit of communication, and anticipates bride/groom needs in a way that's nothing short of impressive. Due to my husband and I's planning, we actually ran out of booze the first few hours of our wedding. But fear not! MaKenna guided our staffing team to make a Safeway run during the event, informed us (the bride/groom) of the extra purchase so it wasn't a shocker later, and our guests never even noticed. That's one of many examples of how MaKenna knows how to solve a problem without it ever turning into an issue. I also wanted to point out that she's great in handling varied bride-groom opinions. My husband and I didn't agree on some things throughout our wedding planning process and every time we had differing opinions in front of MaKenna, she calmly suggested solutions that met both of our concerns or pointed out if something didn't need to be discussed further, i.e. move on to the bigger ticket items vs. over-discussing details. I appreciated this as it helped us with momentum in our planning. I'm super confident that MaKenna's business will continue to thrive in the years to come! Thanks, MaKenna! We truly couldn't have done this without you.

    I hired Jen McNutt-Bloom as the wedding planner for my son's wedding in Eugene this July. His new bride and he live in Hong Kong, so although they were consulted on decisions regarding their wedding, most of the wedding planning fell on my shoulders. I hired Jen last summer after she was highly recommended by the wedding coordinator at Sweet Cheeks Winery, the venue for the wedding. Jen helped me every step of the way, making recommendations for caterers, florists, DJs, photographers, etc. and letting me decide what worked with our budget. She was very generous with her time, communicating with me by phone, email, and in-person meetings, and connecting with the bride and groom by Skype and email. Her knowledge and experience in planning weddings in the Eugene area were invaluable, and her creativity, enthusiasm, and warmth were also greatly appreciated. She also was extremely helpful to me in planning a Welcome Dinner at our home. I highly recommend Jen to anyone looking for a local wedding planner. She's a winner and you can't go wrong!

    We hired J29 for day-of wedding coordination, since we live in Mississippi and were getting married in Portland. Nicole was our coordinator and went above and beyond to make sure things went off without a hitch. Aside from coordinating the ceremony, which was moved inside at the last minute due to rain, she also handled all the reception details so we didn't have to worry about anything on our wedding day. She set up displays, brought us food, kept the event on schedule (cake cutting, dances, announcements, etc.). Working with Nicole was a breeze from start to finish, and I can't imagine what the day would have been like without her help. Thanks Nicole!

      This place is constantly beautifying their grounds with flattering woodwork and landscaping. The resort is family run, and they are a fun group to work with. Nicolle is a "built-in" coordinator for your event. She made sure our wedding day ran flawlessly. I recommend NCR to any of my family or friends for a scenic, woodsy event setting.

        I hired Barbara to come to my home and help me cook a weekly meal plan for me to eat throughout the week. Barbara prepared a thorough meal plan in advance and provided a compete shopping list for me to prepare the food type of my choice. Barbara worked with my schedule and was always on-time. I wanted to learn how to cook everything and participated in the food preparation. She was an excellent teacher to show me how to properly prepare the food. The included proper & thorough precautions to avoid food contamination. Barbara helped me plan health meals but yet new, out of the ordinary type of dishes which all were excellent. I've been enjoying these healthy dishes for several weeks now and will continue to use Barbara in the future to assist and teach me with my meal planning and preparation. I've never eaten so good. The pricing was very reasonable for the amount of time Barbara put into the planning, preparation, travel to my home and amount of time spent preparing meals. Barbara is very professional and has excellent cooking/baking skills. I would highly recommend Barbara for your food/desert requirements.

        Sunblossoms floral is out go-to floral designer. Shannon did our wedding in 2007 and Sunblossoms Floral has been a part of every major event in our family since then. I have recommended her for friends' weddings, each one with different taste and styles- every time, without fail, her artistry and creativity makes the event beautiful. I will continue to call Shannon when an event calls for flowers.

        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. 

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
