When I first met Naomi I honestly was terrified- she's nothing like me at all, a very different personality, etc etc. I confessed to her that I never had a wedding scrapbook or anything and she *might* have judged me, but we planned out a basic idea and I had a good feeling, so we hired her! I was essentially looking for a wedding mentor who suggested but didn't intrude and Naomi fit that role perfectly. At this point, the wedding was about two months away out of a six-month engagement; we had the venue and people and loose ideas. Naomi really took charge at picking up my slack. I know summer has been a busy month for her, but we emailed and texted to make sure everything was in its place. When I was stressed out over details, she magically made it easy for me to decide. I had a very unconventional wedding and she made small suggestions (which I loved) and assured me that everything was going to look great. Of course, everything did turn out great! Naomi is outrageously generous with her talent and time. She didn't *just* suggest how to do bouquets and decorations - she is a florist herself (an AMAZING one) so she did all the flowers. She also sells dresses and accessories- my veil was from her shop and I got to try on various dresses. On the day of, she made sure that everything was in its right place. She missed the ceremony so she could make sure the reception was ready to go afterwards. She's an amazing asset. A very easy-to-work-with planner. I'm really happy she was on our team - our wedding went smoothly thanks to her! I attached a few pictures so you get an idea. We're still waiting on professional ones - so excuse the potato quality!

Brigett at B-Golden made our day so perfect! Brigett is kind and flexible, but also so well-organized and on top of it all. I loved her energy and creativity. She organized our wedding without a hitch. She is full of ideas and tied up any loose ends I would have never thought of. I am so glad I had her by my side. You will not be disappointed if you hire B-Golden to organize your event!

Of course, I have not scheduled an actual event through Ms. Gaines but, I work with her on the daily basis. I can say without hesitation the energy, time, dedication, community (essential) and finagling to get the best for her perspective client(s) is a priority to her. Therefore, if you are seeking a professional and eager event planner give Ms Gaines an opportunity.

Aundrea was awesome!!! I was working in Texas and wanted to have my daughters’ sweet 16 family dinner in her hometown,Nashville ,with friends and family. I didn’t know how I would pull it off being so far away. I found Aundrea online on thumbtack. She was the first to call and sounded enthusiastic to do the job. I looked at her reviews and they were all excellent. I told her my vision and she delivered 120% . We had the dinner at a restaurant and she handled all the coordinating of the events and the services relating to the restaurant staff. The decorations were exactly what I ask for!! I saw ideas online and in magazines and she put them together perfectly!!! I was nervous because I never met her in person until the day of the dinner!! I was praying it wasn’t gonna be a nightmare as I had paid her a deposit and had never done an event without meeting the person! She delivered!! I asked for a videographer and she arranged for all of that as well. Not to mention the videographer got all the memorable moments when I surprised my daughter with her first vehicle!! Those moments in action ,of her being surprised, and the excitement seen from all the quests will never be forgotten and I will have the video to cherish forever!!! I will definitely use Aundrea for ANY big or small events I plan in the future ( my 50th birthday is coming up next year -wink wink). I planned for 30 guests and they all were impressed with the decor and entire flow of the dinner party. Later I found out she recently bought a travel agency where she can come to anyone , anywhere and plan an event. Now that’s awesome!!! Aundrea, you rock!! And I will definitely recommend you to friends and family!! I’m glad you’re in Nashville as that’s my primary residence. The price was well worth every penny ! I believe in that saying “ you get what you pay for “ I wish you continued success in your business , Aundrea. GOD BLESS YOU! Annie

I am cake baker and recently had a Wedding Cake Showcase and sampling. Although i can create beauty out of fondant and buttercream i lack the creativity inarea of decorative display and design. So, i contacted C and C events and Christen was who decorate my display table at the showcasing event. I had explained i had a tight budget. And she was able to work magic. She did not disappoint, she created a beautiful display that really set my cakes a part. The colors, theme and elegant touches where perfect for the occasion. I will definitely use C and C Events in the future.

Libby is very good about listening to exactly what you are looking for and offers suggestions depending on your needs. She has dealt with many venues for an array of events and had suggestions available if you're undecided on location as well. Creativity and professional service are two key words to describe Libby' s services. I would recommend her for any upcoming event.

Our company hired Amber to plan and manage multiple corporate events for us in Austin, TX. She was referred to us by a National Television client of hers (PBS) as a 5 star service provider. She completely lived up to the reviews and exceeded our expectations every time. If you have the opportunity to hire Amber, do it! You will be happy you did. Respectfully, Vanguard Investment Group

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.
