Justice Gladys is a one woman army. If you want you wedding day to be special look no more. When we requested her to offciate our wedding she helped us with the venue and the food, She even sat with us for to customize the ceremony according to our story. We are from India and she was so creative that she very subtly did a fusion of Hindu and Christian marriage which each and every guest applauded as well. I am very happy and blessed that I chose Gladys to do the wedding and I am sure she is the Best :)

John and his team were very professional!! They performed duties beyond their scope because my event planner wasn't doing her job. They all-in-all were instrumental at making sure my guests, myself and husband were well taken care of, from bringing water and a platter of food out to us when pictures were being taken, communicating with our DJ in a professional manner which in turn prompted my DJ to make a public announcement on how spectacular J & L Catering was. If I hadn't mentioned, the food was fantastic. I had great reviews from my family and friends for days/weeks. I would whole heartedly recommend John of J & L Caterers for all weddings.

Belle was amazing! As an event planner, I had turned to Belle to help me bring my client's vision to a reality and she came through 100%! She listened to my needs and offered her expertise and together came up with a great design. She came early the day of the event and set up with her team and then took down afterwards....I felt spoiled as she handled everything. Will defiantly work with her again!!

On exceptionally short notice, we asked Jennifer to help is provide a painting activity for a 14 year old girl's birthday party with nine girls. Jennifer was a great communicator in the planning, developing a very good plan for the event, and did a nice job describing what she would do and what was needed. She showed up on time with all the required materials, and quickly engaged the group. The girls had a great time, completely absorbed and engaged in the activity. Jennifer had just the right approach to coaching and helping them, and they not only produced interesting paintings, but deeply enjoyed the activity. We would enthusiastically recommend her for similar situations, and I suspect she hasn't seen the last of our family.

Gigi was very nice and easy to do business with. There was a lot of communication before the event and she was very patient with me. The bouncy house was the hit of the night and all the kids loved it. The table setups were very nice and clean. Kids also enjoyed their face painting and balloon twisting service. I will definitely come back for more again and again in the future. Thanks Gigi

I wish I could choose more options because John did a fantastic job at our party. The photo booth was a hit with everyone! I’m sorry to say I forgot the woman’s name who was helping John but she was great interacting and engaging people into the event. I will definitely look to use TPF in the future! Thanks for a great evening!!

Working with Yvonne was an absolute pleasure. We hired her as a day of coordinator. She met with us twice in person before the event and was in touch via email about planning, updates, and vendors as we got closer to the day. Yvonne was also great about asking us questions about things we did not even think of. Very important questions! We had total peace of mind the day of the wedding knowing that Yvonne and her assistant Iliana were there to keep everything on schedule and to also remind us that we were married :) They helped with packing up decorations at the end of the night, so we were relieved just knowing that they were there to make sure all of our stuff was safe and put away until the next day. They also helped with setting up the room and decor. I would highly recommend working with Unique Melody Events. They are experienced and know what they are doing. And, they are nice, friendly, professional, and more affordable that other day of planners we looked into. Don't waste your time looking for other planners, go with Unique Melody Events!

Rev. Carl was FABULOUS! The wedding was a bit delayed due to "maid-of-honor forgetfulness" and the Reverend kept this bride occupied, calm and smiling through the whole wait. The service was exactly what I asked for short, sweet and yet still VERY personal. I would absolutely recommend Ocean State Event Services and Rev. Carl for your wedding!

These guys were AMAZING! We had two servers for a house warming party and I cannot believe how easy they made things. There is way to much awesomeness to cover! I cannot believe how easy they made things. I spent weeks freaking out over the party and once the crew showed up, they were on autopilot and made it such a memorable event. All of the guests were extremely impressed with the service and they were both so personable it was very sad to see them leave. We definitely need them back! Highly recommend this great service.

Everyone needs the Professional Maid of Honor at their wedding or event! Katelynn took initiative in so many ways before and on the day of my wedding. Leading up to the event, Katelynn was a great listener. She heard and understood what I envisioned for the day when other people didn't, she helped me think thorough back up plans in case of rain, and when the day came she coordinated everything seamlessly. It's true what everyone says, your wedding day flys by! Having Katelynn there allowed my husband and I to spend more time chatting with our guests. While we were enjoying ourselves, Katelynn made sure the day flowed as planned. She started the transition from cocktail hour to dinner, made sure our speakers were ready to give their toasts, transitioned us into the dance hall after dinner, and so much more. I could go on forever about all the helpful things Katelynn did on our wedding day. What I loved most about working with her was her fun and positive attitude. She took on every change or task without hesitation. Any stress or worry we had about the wedding day running smoothly disappeared once we found and talked with Katelynn. I would recommend The Professional Maid of Honor to anyone and everyone! You will not be disappointed when you hire Katelynn. She will go above and beyond to make sure your event or wedding day is everything you hoped it would be. Kristen & Matt Talbot Wellfleet Wedding May 13, 2017

I received a lot more food than I thought. It was perfect, because I didn't know how many people were going to show up to this event. I was very happy with the surprise fruit salad. I heard a lot of compliments from guests on your potato salad, one quote was "Your potato salad is the *edited* BOMB!" Then I got "Hot damn this chicken falls off the bone, that's when you know it's good!" No, Michelle, I didn't take credit. :) I did tell loads of people who had catered the event. :) Thank you...very much.

Phedora did an outstanding job at my wife 40th birthday party. I outlined my thoughts to her on what I wanted and she took care of every detail down to making sure at the end of the party our cars were packed with the gifts and sent us on our way. If anyone is looking for a event planner that you can trust with an important event, Phedora will take care of you without any issues at all. Thank you for making our party special. We will not hesitate to use you again!

Samantha was such a pleasure to work with! She is detail oriented, has great vision, and stays calm under pressure. The fundraising event she coordinated was a huge hit all around and with Samantha leading the way there was no doubt it would bring lots of people in to support the cause. She pulled together a great venue, delicious food and drinks, a wonderful silent auction, and overall a really successful night! I look forward to working with her again in the future, she is a gem!

I had an amazing experience, and so glad I decided to book EB events for my small wedding. I booked last minute, and I loved how they were understanding and accommodating to my busy timeline. My guests, loved how they were received. Just recently while talking to a friend I asked about the slippers I saw her wearing at the end of my wedding. I had seen another guest with these slippers and found it odd. It turns out they must have been given to guests by EB events after hearing some guests say their feet hurt. Totally unexpected, not something that I had thought of but thankful for having EB events look out for my guests while I was busy. Definitely did the job of taking care of details for me.

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.
