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.

Debra did an amazing job decorating our wedding reception. She was super helpful with planning and coordinating with our other wedding vendors. During the ceremony, Debra made sure we were on schedule for our cake cutting and send off and adapted to different situations such as our final guest count. My wife and I were also very satisfied with the center pieces she created. She is very professional and loves what she does. My wife and I highly recommend debra to be your next event planner!

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!

    Working with Will has been a great experience! Before anything was negotiated he wanted to make sure that we had our vision and he wanted to know everything that he could do to make that vision come true. Working tirelessly at all hours, he negotiated with vendors and caterers on our behalf and was able to procure for us better deals than we could have imagined getting on our own. Planning for your wedding and reception (or any other buisness/corporate event) can be one of the most difficult things when you are not exactly sure how to find the best people for your vision. Will knows exactly how to speak with the vendors and caterers so that we can get the most out of what we put in to the budget. I highly recommend Will Bailey to anyone who is serious about wedding planning or serious about planning any other event and anyone who wants to see their dreams come true. 10/10

    Calah is a planning/spreadsheet genius. She helped me organize everything from my wedding budget to all of my ideas and choices for every detail leading up to the wedding. She also did an incredible job with putting together the bouquets for my wedding party and myself! I didn't want to deal with real flowers for us because I had dealt with oil and water getting on the dresses before, so she suggested that I used fake flowers. I don't have a creative bone in my body so I let her take the lead on this and she went and bought everything and put together the bouquets and they were beautiful! So we ended up doing the same for the boutonnières and corsages.

    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.
