We hired Shimmy Giggles for both face painting and balloon artistry for a school carnival. Carrie and her staff are simply amazing!!! They showed up ahead of schedule and set up right away. They were all enthusiastic and the kids had a great time! In addition to the above, they were so flexible with us. I had to move the ballon artists twice to different rooms. They were so accommodating and never had anything but smiles!! Carrie made sure to congratulate the children on their outstanding reading achievements (which is why they got to attend the carnival). The kids absolutely loved their painted faces and the wide array of balloon animals/swords/flowers/etc that they made! I can't say enough wonderful things about Carrie and her staff!!! At the end, she made 3 special balloons for my children (twins who had a birthday 2 days after the event). We can't wait to hire Shimmy Giggles for our next event! Thank you so much!

Even though I did not use their services, I was extremely impressed with their professionalism and willingness to work with me. Cindy took the time to get me tickets for the bridal convention and a planner. My fiancé and I are on a strict budget but they were very willing to offer a payment plan to help us. Cindy took the time to listen to my requests and was very open in working TOGETHER! As a wedding gift, a close friend offered to pay for a DJ that is a friend of his. Since we are on a budget, we accepted but I would definitely use Cindy and Steve in the future or recommend them to anyone that asks. Thank you guys for all the help!

Cathy was absolutely amazing! She not only set up our grand opening with great food, donations and drinks, she also helped us with networking and getting the word out about our party ad well as new business. Cathy goes the extra mile and makes sure that everything is set up and running properly on the day of your event. I had nothing to stress about because she was so proactive and on top of every detail. She is absolutely wonderful! She made a great impression with all of our clients and guests and will continue to be our go to for parties and events in the future. I can't imagine planning our event without her! Jessica O.

I really enjoyed working with Dayna. From the beginning she perfectly communicated everything I needed to know. She did an outstanding job putting together a very nice graduation party in less than 2 weeks. I would recommend Party On Planning to anyone that is looking for an event planner.

I can not tell you enough great things about Tiffany, she was just amazing! First off she is extremely nice. She emailed or called back almost immediately every time. She was always ahead of the game and was very organized. She was very affordable compared to many other wedding planners we looked at but still went above and beyond. She also made a short video of our wedding for us which we just loved!

Attending an "out of town" wedding is always a potential for disaster and/or unwanted stress. Not when we recently traveled to the Dallas area to see our niece get married. The planning and attention to detail was obviously well thought out and orchestrated beautifully. Details including hotel choice, maps and time schedules for group dinners for the out of town visitors both prior to the wedding as well as the actual wedding day were so helpful. The venues were perfectly layed out and the fluidity of the day made the hours fly by! All of the "extras" that were at the wedding added to the experience. The choices in food, baked items, photography, DJ and all the services that go along with a big wedding were obviously suited to the Bride and Groom rather than the wedding planner. As guests, we focused on the beautiful experience and everthing around us happened seemlessly. No one ever seemed stressed or led us to believe there was ever a problem or issue coordinating everything. Hats off to a job well done!

There are not enough words to describe how amazing Kristen was. I'm not going to lie -- my husband fought me on hiring a wedding planner. He thought we did not need one and we shouldn't worry about it. However, immediately after the wedding, as we were driving away, he said, "The best investment we made for this wedding was Kristen." Kristen made our day unforgettable. Everybody warned me that I would not remember a detail about my wedding day because I would be so preoccupied before and during the wedding. Kristen made sure to take all of the responsibility and details of the wedding into her own hand. She organized parts of the wedding that my husband and I did not know existed in a wedding. She made sure we were fed, our drinks were full, and that we were having fun. I would hire Kristen a thousand times again. She dealt with my crazy attitude, with my family, and even kept my husband's groomsmen in check. If you hire Kristen, you will be getting your moneys worth. She is amazing and I highly recommend her services!

We were trying to figure out where to go for help in planning our company outing. When I had the opportunity to speak with Shannon and A.J. we were very pleased with their ability to take our few thoughts and turn our company function into a professional outing. They gave me so many ideas I would not have thought of. Thank you to Integrity Events and Design!

I love the balloon decor that they made for my daughter's birthday. Since the day I inquired about their services up to the day of the event they were always punctual and responded promptly to my messages. The quality their service is worth the money I spent (and I didn't have to spend a lot)! Thank you very much and until next time.

For every bride who ever said to herself "I don't need a wedding planner" let me tell you "YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR MIND." These ladies should not be called wedding planners they should be called Fairy Godmothers because the work that they do goes above and beyond. First and foremost they are super organized which makes someone like me feel very at ease, there is nothing worse than a scatter-brain planner. They have so much experience and such an amazing positive attitude that planning our wedding was actually a fun experience. The day of the wedding we didn't have to worry about anything, we had an amazing time. Thank you ladies for understanding our vision, for being patient with us and for making our wedding one that our friends have yet to stop talking about. #keepintouch #chicharrones :)

Where do I begin? From the moment I walked into the store I knew was in the right place. The staff was so helpful in planning my son's birthday party. From the balloon and decoration selections to rentals like the bounce house and tables/chairs; it was definitely the best place to go. I will definitely use this party store for future events!

Thumbtack needs a 6 star rating for "Outstanding". Cynthia Denise Events was outstanding. I'm a busy professional, and Cynthia handled my engagement party with minimal input on my part (just basic input) and perfect judgement on her part. I'm not a party thrower, so I'm amazed … THAT A PARTY THAT I ACTUALLY THREW … was such a smashing success! Cynthia's selection of venue and vendors (food caterer, photographer, etcetera) was excellent. Kenney, who is Cynthia's husband and DJ, has a great knack for getting people into the spirit of going out on the dance floor (my song list of traditional country songs bombed at my party, but Kenney's versatility and feel for the audience got people into the mood really well). In conclusion, Cynthia is very organized, she has a delightful personality, and you will enjoy working with her in planning your event. But most importantly, you'll be very pleased with the results of your special event.

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.
