I had a huge event for a organization I'm apart of on Saturday, May 5, 2018 in the park. K. Artisme, was simple amazing! She was on time, friendly and very patience with all the children. She had a line from the moment she open until our event was over 12-5. The children and parents were very happy with her work. I would recommend her to everyone! I can't thank you enough for such a beautiful and fun day with you. We will most definitely use you again. Thank You!!! Keep up the Great Work! :) Debbie

You NEED Hannah. You don't know it yet, but you really do need her! We hired Hannah as our day-of wedding coordinator. We orchestrated the details of our wedding ourselves, but found that we were in need of someone to be there to help bring all of those details together. I was so impressed that Hannah was sharing in my vision from the time of our first meeting! She was easy to contact throughout the weeks leading up to our wedding. She offered her insight or opinion when needed, she was there the day before our event, and was even helping us set up our lighting!!!! She was hearing me talk to her and to my family about things that needed to be done and she took those tasks upon herself and unloaded burdens from our hands one by one. Her schedule was flexible and she seemed just as invested in the success of the wedding as we were! It felt like we had a good friend there to see that our day went off without a hitch. She is confident in what she knows about weddings and came across so organized, which was very calming on the day of our wedding. I don't know what we would have done without her. HANNAH REES is who you need to help you coordinate your event!! Look no further.

Christy helped me with planning my wedding in Pennsylvania what I lived the whole way in Colorado. She was fabulous and on top of everything. When it came to the wedding day she knew exactly what I wanted and helped the day run so smoothly. I would suggest hiring them for any event planning need. They truly are amazing!

Sharrona did an amazing job planning my wedding reception. I could not ask for a better event coordinator. She explained everything clearly and honestly in regards to the look I was going for and my budget. She found a way to make all of my ideas come together tastefully. She took away the stress of my trying to plan my own wedding. I was extremely overwhelmed when I first started planning but after meeting Sharrona she took all of my anxiety away. I plan to utilize her services again in the future.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
