Mark and Louise were great. They came out a long way for a tasting as well the day before our wedding to set up, the wedding itself, and the day after to help clean up. The service they provided was excellent, the food options were varied and of high quality.

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!

We were so happy to have Silver Star Entertainment Services for our wedding and reception. Our guests had a great time with the variety of music that was played. Our requested songs were played and guests could request throughout the night. The photo booth was a blast and we can't wait for the pictures! We had many compliments afterwards and even had a family member ask for their contact information to book their own wedding. Thank you so much for a wonderful night!

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.

DJ Darrell and his crew are the reason I am sore right now!!! My wedding was last night and they had us on the dance floor the entire time. He even was able to get my husband on the dance floor! He truly made our night and I will be recommending him to anyone looking for quality, professional, punctual entertainment. Thank you again!!

Lori was a wonderful wedding planner! She was extremely organized, knowledgeable about the venue and the various vendors, easy to work with, and careful to take the worry of the actual day and series/timing of events from us. Lori was in constant communication with us and made our daughter's dreams a reality.

This lady is very reliable and incredibly creative--the wedding cake we had ordered from Sam's was a disaster and she managed to move frosting around, re-shape some of the ugly flowers in the wrong color that they had put on, and added some others to save the day! Her centerpieces and other decorations were so cute and admired by everyone. We would definitely contact her again to work with us on other special events, whether it was wedding related or another celebration.

Chef Marcus catered my wedding 💒 a few months ago. The food was awesome. We had Prime rib served with a French onion and mushroom 🍄 sauce, herbal roasted chicken 🍗 served with creamy Alfredo and fettuccine. Wild rice 🍚 pilaf, rosemary finger ling potatoes 🍠, a vegetable medley, and garlic butter steamed broccoli. It was to die for. I would recommend you eat anything Chef Marcus cooks.

Lauren was very professional while being my wedding planner. She made sure I meet all dead lines and gave great ideas and feedback to my wedding. When I wasn’t sure of something or an idea Lauren eased my mind and made me feel relaxed and hubby with the decision I choose! Lauren on the day of my wedding handled everything! I didn’t have to think about anything! And if I forgot something she told me she had it covered and not to worry. My only job was to get married!! And I did just that! She was wonderful! And she treated my wedding as if it were her very own!

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.

    Hiring Clare as our wedding coordinator was absolutely one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. It was a special blessing to be able to spend precious time with our families before our ceremony and know that Clare was setting up and making sure every detail was in place. She helped us with some last minute fixes. We were so glad to have her there to discreetly guide us through our reception when we were in our happy zone. We wouldn’t have known what to do without her there. Clare's passion for weddings combined with her organization and attention to detail truly added value to the planning of our wedding. We would highly recommend her to any couple planning their wedding.

    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.

    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.
