I am absolutely thrilled with the way Dine Schools catered my Engagement party.They really made my party perfect!!! I have friends and family that are still talking about food/party. Everything turned out better than I could've imagined and the staff was unbelievable. Now to get to the food and the set up! Delicious and stunning!!! I had no idea I was going to see any kind of set up display and when I walked into the venue I was so shocked! It looked so beautiful !! Everyone kept asking me about the caterer because they kept saying how delicious the food was! I loved the system used, the plates and silverware were so nice! Everyone was fed, with plenty extra to get seconds! I accidentally put the wrong time on my invitation but Chef Mark assured me it was o problem at all! He was well prepared, on time, attentive, and truly amazing!!! I sat back the next day so grateful on how my party went!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU CHEF MARK!!! Can't wait to see you and your staff at the wedding!!!

Corley was an amazing day-of coordinator. The week of our wedding, Corley was in communication with all the vendors and confirmed all details with them. She helped us manage communication when our hotel had to change at the last minute. She attended our rehearsal the day before the wedding. She dropped off sandwiches for the bridesmaids on the day of the wedding. She also went early to decorate the venue (and it looked incredible!) She ran the ceremony and helped us stay on schedule. She organized all of the clean up and made sure the items were repacked in the correct cars. I couldn't recommend Corley highly enough!

Lori is absolutely amazing. Her work is impeccable. Every one of our guests whose face she painted or for whom she made a balloon was thrilled with her work. She is the consummate professional- punctual, highly proficient, and full of positivity. I can't wait to refer her to everyone I know and book her for our next event. Thank you Lori for making my faughter's first birthday party so memorable!!

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.

This DJ came in to rescue my wedding. I had one dj cancel on me at the last minute and he was able to take my list and create a wonderful seamless event. His crew was professional and I cant say enough about the music choices he made to keep the dance floor packed. I would definitely recommend his services.

Karli stepped in as our wedding coordinator in the 3 weeks before our wedding. I was exhausted after Hurricane Harvey and still had a few items to wrap up and just couldn’t find the time to do it all. Karli took over and allowed me to focus on the few substantive choices left to make and then coordinated all the final details. She was great! Everything not only got done but on the actual day, we didn’t have to worry about anything. As a result, we went from stressed out to having a blast, focused on each other, our family and our friends instead of our vendors. A great experience. Thank you Karli!

I recently hired Surreal Occasion Events to plan my dream wedding and reception. Jahneiss was very prompt and professional, and made this a stress free experience. She contacted my vendors and made sure that things were getting done so that everything flowed smoothly on the day of the wedding. The decorations were very classy and fit perfect with my theme and vision. Thanks to Surreal Occasion Events I had the best wedding planning experience and my wedding was everything I wanted it to be and more.

Kari Houston was my wedding coordinator and she did an amazing job! She was attentive and provided suggestions/guidance at all of our meetings prior to the big day. Her team arrived early and ensured that everything went as planned or better. My decorator forgot some items and her team quickly found a solution that worked out better than I had originally planned. My husband loved how she interacted with him and the groomsmen, which was Important since so much attention goes to the bride. I would highly recommend her and her team if a stress free event is at the top of your list!

Jami was amazing. I hired her two days before the event to work as my day of coordinator. I really thought I could manage it on my own but the closer I got to the event the more I realized how much went in to a wedding. She got the contact information for all my vendors so I could focus on getting ready and having fun the day of the wedding. She even steamed my dress which I had no desire to do myself. Once the event started she was an extension of me making sure all the details ran smoothly. Everything was where it needed to be when it needed to be there. She even cleaned up all my stuff from the reception room and whisked it away so I could enjoy the after party. I got it the next day. Jami made sure she got all the business stuff done on the day of so I could enjoy everything else about the day. Weddings are expensive and a day of wedding coordinator is a fantastic investment.

I was looking at venues and saw that BYE was a preferred vendor for one of the locations. After reviewing the site I emailed them just to compliment them on the beatiful website. I was very impressed but convinced I could never afford anything that highend. Asha actually responded back and started a conversation about what my dream wedding would be and what kind of budget did I have. I decided from that email it was worth having a meeting. From the first meeting and viewing of the showroom I felt enchanted. I felt Like she got my vision through an email conversation. She really listened. I am having a destination wedding on Crystal Beach. My experience has been so positive through all the processes of her coordinating the logistics of being on the pennisula from the design planning, adminstrative task and coordinating with their local vendors. She has kept me on track with my budget with her creativity and realistic goals. I am now 2 months away from my wedding and I know it will be all I wished for thanks to BYE. If I could give 6 stars I would. See photos of the venue to see challenges BYE tackled without hesitation. Beachhouse is surrounded by water with access via the ferry. Can't wait to share photos of the big day!

Kate helped me plan my wedding and was wonderful. My wedding had 300 guests and Kate was on point with everything she helped me with. She was very thorough, organized, and kept me on track with details. She did everything from helping me set up a budget, to looking over my registry, to helping me paint table numbers for the reception. Whatever I needed help with, she was an expert with advice and ideas. Also, in a time with lots of emotions, she was a grounded source with realistic, reasonable, and straight forward answers and solutions... which I truly appreciated. I highly recommend Kate to help plan any event, big or small.

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.
