Can I say INCREDIBLE ! If you are debating on whether or not a wedding planner is worth it, Natalie IS! I never understood the value of a planner until I lived the wedding process. We had a beautiful outdoor wedding for my daughter, and I honestly do not think the wedding day would have turned out as beautiful if it had not been for Natalie. She was there through the planning process, making sure no details were left undone. Last minute our makeup and hair lady backed out and of course Natalie pulled through and found us the perfect ladies to step up and they did an awesome job. Natalie handled EVERYTHING from decorations to making sure all the vendors were in place for that special day. Natalie & her husband even went in the woods to cut a tree down to make a beautiful arch at our lake for the ceremony! She is truly a gift and rare. I could go on and on how truly amazing and talented she is but if you are reading this, please contact her. You will NOT regret it. We love you Natalie and were so blessed to have you make this day so AWESOME!

Kimberly is a genius when it comes to decorations and ideas. She even pinned my hair up for my wedding when my stylist didn't show. She will definitely be my fist call for any other events I will have in the future.

Melonie at A Personal Occasion Photography was amazing! Both out engagement and wedding photos were more then we could have ever imagined. We were told our engagement photos would be about an hour long session and it was. She and her husband photograph our wedding for about 6 hours. Every photo was amazingly beautiful and I've teared up every time I have gone back to look at the proofs. She have been professional from the first day we spoke. I will recommend everyone who needs a photographer to her. An amazing lady and her skills are phenomenal.

It was a joy to have Staci plan my wedding and my daughter's first birthday celebration. She devoted the same level of professionalism and attention to detail to my intimate, milestone events as she did to her grand Pink Affair event and vendor expos. I highly recommend her services.

          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.

          What is a wedding planner?

          A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

          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.
