Stardust Events is amazing! My partner and I had them DJ our wedding, and we rented a margarita machine from them for our rehearsal dinner. Juan and Corley make a great team, and we are so thankful to have found them. They are fun, professional and loving people. They are excellent communicators and do what they say they will do. Juan was the DJ at our wedding, and everyone raved about him. He was critical in ensuring that all of our guests had a fun time. We are incredibly grateful to Stardust Events and highly recommend them to anyone looking for event services. We plan to use them for other events in the future.

Pamela reached out to me, mentioning she had helped plan a wedding at the venue we chose in the past. We scheduled a phone call to discuss details. During the call, I mentioned we felt uneasy after meeting with the venue, and that we had a follow-up meeting tomorrow. She offered right then and there to attend the meeting to help us navigate our needs, after which we could make a decision about both the venue and her. I was blown away! She showed up the next day at the venue on time and hugged me and my fiancé right out, no hand shakes. She put us at ease the whole time. Afterward we were so excited about our wedding, not stressed like we had been for weeks. We signed a contract right then and there. Thanks again Pamela! We’re so looking forward to having you with us on our special day.

KNZO entertainment has done an amazing job for our wedding on 3/10/2018. We have worked with them for the past 8-10 months and it was a pretty smooth planning through out our experience working with them. They have provided easy access web tool to manage our budget and list of vendor contacts. Also - the Stacie (planner) sends out a list of to-do tasks that actually helps us keep on our toes during our wedding planning. She would provided suggestions and is willing to go an extra mile to modify any changes as needed, weeks before the wedding day. We were also recommended for preferred photography and DJ and everything worked out beautifully. They deserved a 5 star for great customer and quality services that we do not have anything negative to say but except a big hug and many thanks to her and her team. Our wedding was definitely a memorable night and we couldn't have done it without them. They are definitely and highly recommended.

We have given an event for Memorial Day weekend for the past 3 years thi's will be our 4th year. We have gotten them and are very happy with their service. The music is off the chain, whatever music you want to listen to they have it, the karokee is awesome thing that they accommodate for also. The coordination, you can't ask for anything better, they are right on point in getting it organized. We will certainly use them for all of our events.

Lori was amazing! I would definitely recommend her for your upcoming event. Lori was so well organized, communicated with me throughout the event and very friendly to all the staff. Many things changed prior to the wedding day, Lori was very flexible with the changes and even offered her assistance when I had only hired her for day of coordination. On the day of my wedding, she was on time to assist other staff with set up and preparing the venue. Having Lori made my day worry free, she made sure everything went as planned and even stayed to help my family and friends with packing up items and cleaning up. She is wonderful!

Lauren is an amazing wedding planner. I hired her as a "day of" planner because I decided late to even get a planner. She was right there by my side the moment we signed the contract and I quickly found out that a "day of" starts helping you months in advance. It was a wonderful thing because I had a lot on my plate and needed all the help I could get. There was a few things I didn't have done and she took care of them for me in stride. For example: she asked me day one "what have you not done" the biggest thing on my mind at the time was the linens for the tables. So I told her and I didn't know where to start. I thought I would get some advice and instead she sent me a list of vendors and set up appointments with them right away. It was amazing! I was out of town and her taking that sort of initiative that quick was a huge reassurance I hired the right person for the job. Everything was that easy, even on the day of the wedding. She kept in contact with me daily and had answers for everything. What was even better was when I had to connect her to other vendors. The florist, Dj, photographer, etc., they all really enjoyed working with her. Some of them even added her to their preferred vendor list! They saw right away what I got to see day in and day out, she's detail oriented, organized, to the point, friendly, professional and knows a lot about weddings. She also comes up with amazing ideas along the way to help you save money. She did all of this, planning my wedding, plus held other jobs, it surprised me she had the same 24 hours in a day that I do with how much she accomplished all of the time. The day of the wedding was just as smooth with her as the planning process. She could tell when I would get nervous about something not going according to plan, calm me down and moved forward with a new plan. She really works well under pressure!! She even brought assistants on the day of and they followed her stride accordingly with no issues. I didn't get a lot of interaction with them but I had guests ask what company she was from because they could see the professionalism. I would recommend Lauren to anyone I know who needs help plannning any sort of large event (not even just weddings, she's that good!) . I honestly can't think of any negatives which is refreshing because she is the only vendor I had that experience with and that's almost impossible to find!

I knew about of Durami Events and Rentals from a wedding I attended at La Torretta Resort and Spa in Conroe, which all guest were blown away by the decorations and coordination they provided. My fiancée insisted on using the same vendor. We set up an appointment and booked them, from beginning to the end of my wedding planning and execution they made it an amazing experience. I always recommend them to all my friends and family for events.

    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.

    Amanda did a spectacular job with my flowers for my wedding in June. I have gotten endless comments about how beautiful my floral arrangements, bouquets, and boutonnières were! I could have not have trusted a better person with the floral arrangements for my special day! She is very helpful and will go step by step with you when deciding which flowers you want to choose. She is patient and always willing to give suggestions (especially when you don't know anything about flowers like me). You can't go wrong with Amanda Bee's Floral Designs

    Do not let the appearance of a team of 3 fool you. I am confident that Amanda will make my dream day a total success! Out of all the planners that I spoke with Amanda understood my vision and is just as excited as I am to build the wedding of our dreams. On top of designing, she has a list of vendors working with The Event Group and is helping me to coordinate the entire event. We just started planning, but I refuse to do the event without Amanda by my side working through all those details that matter. Will definitely all before/after photos.

    Karmen did an amazing job as our day-of coordinator! She is organized, detail-oriented, friendly, and a great communicator with both us and the other vendors on the wedding day. She met with us about a month before the wedding to discuss the wedding day timeline and all our wedding planning to date. The meeting was both productive and fun, and we left the meeting feeling relieved that Karmen was going to help make our wedding day stress-free. The ceremony and reception were executed so well, many of our family, friends, and even the other vendors told us they had not been to such a smooth wedding. The other vendors complimented us on our choice of coordinator, saying they enjoyed working with someone as pleasant and professional as Karmen. They were also shocked to hear that our wedding was her first one to coordinate, as she is just getting her business started. I think this is high praise for Karmen, since our other vendors were experienced and of high quality as well. I would highly recommend Karmen as a day-of coordinator to anyone. After seeing her excellent work on our wedding day, we wished we had involved her more in our wedding planning. We are honored to have been her first wedding, and are sure she will be very successful in any and all future events.

    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.
