when i was planning my wedding i realized "hey, i need help"! As most of us do in this day and age i turned to facebook lol I (jokingly) stated "can i just hire a wedding planner! Low and behold i had a response, and it said yes you can! I was given Shalamar's contact information. My initial thought was, no way! i cant afford a real wedding planner, but when i had my first meeting with Shalamar i was pleasantly surprised. The cost was within my budget for what i needed ( i only needed day of coordination) and my first impression of her was ... comfort... she put my mind at ease, very attentive to what I wanted and how i wanted everything. She asked questions, as many as she had to and took notes! I knew i was going to be ok! Most brides know we want things how we want things and when we cant be there to overlook things it is extremely stressful. Shalamar helped take that stress off my shoulders. She was there front and center for rehearsal and taking notes as to who belongs where and with who. Day of wedding she was at the church even before i was, and made sure flowers were in place and people were in place. My bouquet was wrong, wrong and wrong, well she found the flower lady and had her fix it. easy fix but for a bride its the end of the world lol. When we got to the venue, again, she was already there and everything was in its place. The last minute items i had for her were put where i wanted. She had a schedule and was on it! She made sure everything went as it should, even had her assistant to help, because as you know one person can not be in 2 places at once! She made things even easier for us when she made sure she got our gifts into our vehicle before the end of the night. All in all she was the best facebook response i ever got! I am so very glad i had the opportunity to hire her! She was on point and for a person like me, pick, she was my perfect fit! Thank you Shalamar for everything, thank you for treating my special day like it was your special day and making sure everything was perfect!

I hired Beverly for my 3/25/17 wedding in Canyon Lake. She was such a joy to work with throughout the entire process. I know nothing about flowers and she was more than willing to meet with me several times and even met me at a wholesale floral supply company to show me different flowers and to get a feel for what I liked. I told her what I liked and gave her my colors and she did the rest. She was affordable and worked within my budget, actually keeping us below our budget. My bouquet was gorgeous! I'd given her a rosary that belonged to my grandmother to wrap around my bouquet and my coordinator told me she gave it such great attention. It was perfect! I got so many compliments on the flowers, especially the gorgeous alter arrangements and the fresh flower cascade on my cake. I highly recommend Beverly and her work for any event.

If you are reading these reviews to help you decide if Dilshan is the right wedding planner for you, I want you to stop right now and call him before someone else books him. All joking aside, working with Dilshan during my brother's wedding was such an enjoyable experience. He has all of the great qualities that an elite wedding planner should have. He is quite possibly the most organized person that I have ever met and he coordinates everything with a calm and confident demeanor. Having worked with several other wedding planners in the past, I can also say that Dilshan has other qualities that make him stand apart from the rest. His warm personality and helpfulness showed that he cared about my brother's wedding and all of the people involved in it. Several times during the wedding day his gratitude went above and beyond the duties of a wedding planner. At the end of the wedding he even gave my mother and nephew a ride back to their hotel so that the rest of the wedding party could continue to celebrate. He is not a good wedding planner. He is the best. Book him now, you will not regret it.

Margaret is like my fairy God mother. I hired Margret about a year before our wedding for make up services and day of coordinating. However my grandmother was diagnosed with cancer theee months before our wedding. At that point I have Margaret complete control of the wedding. Margaret far exceeded my expectations. She not only got the job done but was a huge support throughout that time. Our entire wedding experience would not have been what it was without Margret and mad make over professionals. Margaret is very knowledgable about the industry and has a vast quantity of resources and contacts. If you ask me I think she just knows everything. She is always promt, professional , and curtious. I have continued to use her services for various life events that require hair, makeup or party planning. Margaret has become family. Choosing Mad Make Over Proffesionals will be the best descision you make about your wedding.

Wolf Weddings & Events did my Day Of Wedding Coordination. I was very impressed with the team that supported my wedding. Emily was on top of it!!! She was not only prompt and professional, but she also handled the little last minute changes without missing a beat. I was able to relax and get ready without concern. Her and her team were so helpful in managing the setup and little details that made our wedding beautiful! They made sure that everything went smoothly all the way to the very end of the evening! They were so much fun in addition! I would highly recommend Wolf Weddings to anyone!

I cannot even begin to tell you all of the ways Custom Staffing made my wedding amazing. From the initial consultation they made my new wife and I feel important and taken care of. They handled every single one of our concerns and the entire wedding went off amazing! The very few hiccups were handled professionally and quickly to the point where none of my guests were even aware of anything going wrong. I cannot wait to work with them again, I'm planning a grand opening for our small business and can't imagine using anyone else!

Tara went above and beyond for our event to make sure that everything came out excellent! We had some issues with a vendor the day of the event, and she actually assisted us in finding a resolution quickly as possible. This isn't required of her, but she wanted to make sure that the event went smoothly. She was at the venue extremely early to make sure that everything started properly. She is very punctual and tries to make sure that the schedule she creates is adhered to, but she is also flexible and able to adapt to changes very quickly. A wedding is a very stressful event for the bride, groom, and their families. Tara took the unnecessary stress out of the day and made sure that we were able to focus on the wedding and each other. If we didn't use Tara we wouldn't have known where to begin in regards to planning the day of the wedding and wouldn't have been able to have an amazing day as we ended up having! I would definitely suggest you use Tara for your wedding day coordination needs. I would also suggest using her for full planning because I believe that if we used her the wedding planning would have mainly been stress-free. Thank you Tara!!!!!!

Jordan was a true pro. When I first thought about hiring a "day of" coordinator for my wedding reception, to be held outdoors at a grand old home on the San Antonio river, I didn't really understand all the work that person does long before the day of the event. From our first communications on Thumbtack before I even hired her, she was friendly and knowledgable, asking plenty of questions to get a sense of what I wanted. Meeting her, she was thorough and efficient, getting contacts and following through with all my vendors. She was onsite the day before and first thing in the morning, making sure everything was set up properly and in place. I spent a blissful 5 hours not worrying about anything but visiting with guests because Jordan was making sure everything ran smoothly, including getting us in place for the cake cutting and toast. All the vendors appreciated her as well. I can't recommend her enough, and am so happy I made the investment. It was more than I was planning to spend initially, but she was worth every penny. Thank you, Jordan!

WOW! Where to even begin. Kim was absolutely amazing from the start. She worked with us throughout the whole entire process of our wedding and knew exactly what we wanted - a fall themed wedding. She is a pro at decorating, especially weddings, and had the magic touch on placement and making due with the space we had. Anytime I had any questions at all she would get back to me promptly and would relieve any stress I had. Kim truly has the vision and made my wedding a dream come true. As a bride, we want our day to be perfect, and it could not have been any more perfect than it was thanks to Kim, her assistant Elaine, and the other workers that helped set up. They also provided take down/clean up and day of coordination. I wasn't considering a wedding planner/day of coordinator until we met with Kim and I am so glad we hired her! Everything went smoothly and my husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing. We truly got to enjoy our day and have gotten handfuls of compliments on how magical and beautiful our day was. I could go on and on about this company and their employees. I am SO thankful and grateful for everything they did. I would a million times over hire them again and I recommend their services to everyone. Wonderful people, wonderful business - they are 150% there for you every step of the way. THANK YOU guys from the bottom of our hearts!!! - Shaina & Alex

    I just recently hired Becci in October 2011 for my fiance that was going crazy with trying to plan a 250 guest wedding. In just a matter of a month she has found our wedding venue,cake vendor, and DJ. Becci is still going strong with the rest of the details we are needing to have lined up before we can take a mini break. She has given my fiance lots of ideas for everything. I highly recommend Becci as your wedding planner. We are also going to have her plan out my step daughter's quincenera in 2013. Thanks Becci, Gilbert

    My beautiful wedding was coordinated by the awesome Mrs. Stephanie Lee. My wedding was Nov 20th, 2015 a destination wedding and because of the location I wasn't able to always fly from California to Texas on a daily basis. Stephanie took care of everything!! We were always in contact and she never missed an email/text or call! She was great in finding the greatest venue, DJ, florist, caters and so much more, I never had to worry about anything. And I loved that! She took all the amount of stress away even on the night before my wedding! Swear she was my "Fairy Godmother", she made my childhood dream wedding come true! So if you're in San Antonio or near by the area and plan on getting married, or having any party really, Stephanie is your go to girl!!! She gets things done and if you're a bride on a budget (like I was!) she's the best discount queen ever! She knows the best places that have excellent prices! You won't be disappointed with her work, she goes above and beyond for you! Her staff were sweet, very professional and I couldn't be more blessed to have her coordinate my wedding! My family and friends couldn't stop talking about how great everything went and how breath taking our wedding venue location was! So thank you Stephanie for creating the best memorable exciting moment my husband and I ever had!!

      Imogene at Elated Weddings made my destination wedding stress free and amazing! She worked with me through the planning stages to help me brainstorm and organize, and she was there the entire wedding weekend to make sure things stayed on track. I loved that she kept all the stress of a wedding from getting to me so that I could enjoy my special day. All my guests raved about how coordinated our wedding was and I couldn't have done it without her!

        MY STORY My passion for wedding and event planning began about 10 years ago when I would pour over ten pound of bridal magazines and dream of stunning designs for magical, whimsical, classic and elegant gatherings that I new I could create, It wasn’t until our own wedding day that my passion turned to purpose, and faith became feet to the dreams of being entrusted with a bride’s and groom’s most important day their day. My experience, skills and training I would say I gained in working in high end hotels as a banquet manager and restaurants that give me the opportunity to work wedding events and set ups this lends itself perfectly to the skills necessary for wedding and event planning – patience, planning and organization, working with people and tailoring to individual needs that I understand perfectly as a hair studio owner for 18 years you learn to cater to your guess. Thank you for your time in reading this and I hope you can share this post so hopefully it can reach a soon to be bride that might need my help. #SirVictorMGarciaweddingcoordinator

        About

        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.
