Sunny was great to work with! She was prompt, gave a great overview of how to work the equipment, and was flexible with pickup times the day after the event. I would definitely recommend her services.

Mr. Webb was attentive and open to our requests. He provided options and scriptures. He was able to meet with us prior to our wedding, first as a consultation, then at the Rehearsal, and finally the ceremony. During the consultation he professionally and appropriately asked about our ceremony, what our expectations were and how we wanted our ceremony. He continued to communicate with us throughout the process and provided a script for us to review and modify. He was genuinely open to changes and additions. We met for the rehearsal and he orchestrated the event, meeting our needs and requests. He made soft suggestions where he thought needed. The ceremony was harmonious and well attended. We would recommend Phillip for a traditional Christian valued wedding. My husband and I are extremely happy with him.

Kari at La Chantal events did an amazing job on both my wedding and baby shower! From finding the perfect vendors to make our chic outdoor wedding dream come true to the amazing dreamy setup for our baby shower. She’s my go-to event planner. I really can’t say enough positive things about her. In both instances, she kept the stress that so many brides and first-time moms feel, with those events, from even affecting me which allowed me to thoroughly enjoy those days, but still ensuring our vision was executed perfectly! Definitely give her a try.

Lashonda is great to work with. She took care of my party while I enjoyed. From the setup till the disposal she was there throughout. She took care of all the little details and did a wonderful job for my daughter’s first birthday! I will definitely hire her again. And recommend her. All my friends were impressed with the decorations and management of the event!

I used JC Enterprises for my college graduation in 2010, my engagement party in 2013 and my wedding in 2014. People are still talking about all three events and the service couldn't have been better! JC Enterprises is my go to for all my party planning and event needs.

    Clare helped to make both my bachelorette party and bridal shower absolutely unforgettable. For the bachelorette, she helped the group seamlessly navigate Playa del Carmen. She found us a wonderful condo in a great location, and she created an itinerary of just the right amount of scheduled activities (i.e. an amazing club crawl and an all-inclusive catamaran sail with snorkeling) as well as some down time. Her attention to detail both logistically and aesthetically made all the difference! The decor at both events was fantastic, and her calligraphy on my signage was beautiful. I would 100% trust Clare with my future events.

    One word is all you need to describe the impact Elisia from Just My Flava had on my event - "AMAZING!". Three weeks before my wedding, my candy bar vendor bailed on me. I was frantically looking for someone to still make my candy bar a reality and that's when I came across Just My Flava Candy Bars & Event Planning. Though it was short notice, Elisia was eager of take on my candy bar, which was to serve 450 guests at my reception. I was immediately put at ease during our first meeting, Her professionalism, attention to detail, and attentive nature helped make the candy bar at my event a focal point, which our guests, now a month later, continue to talk about. Elisia's warm and genuine caring nature makes her a joy to work with and I couldn't have asked for anyone better to help make my event a successful one. THANK YOU ELISIA!!!

      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.
