A+ The whole team was fantastic. We decided to seek help from a planner a week before the wedding because everything was getting too much for us. Paperie & Co came in and organized everything. They coordinated and chased venders, decorated beautifully, made sure the day went smoothly, tended to all the guests and cleaned up leaving us to enjoy our wonderful day. In hindsight we should have just hired them straight from the start. Very pleased with the service we received and would highly recommend.

Our 50th wedding anniversary party. It could not have been better. Travis had all the wonderful music we wanted and didn't do a lot of extra talking that some DJ's do. In fact a guest at the party wanted her music to go like ours for her wedding reception. Everyone danced the night away and had a fantastic time.

The services provided by Expressions Plus were remarkable. As a hostess, it was a wonderful feeling to see my guest full of joy as they celebrated my special occasion with me. Not only were the alcoholic drinks mixed to perfection, non alcoholic drinks were served with the same satisfaction. I will definitely use Expressions Plus again and I highly recommend the company for any one looking to make their event extra special. The services provided made my wedding day special not only for me but my guest as well. I promise if you go with Expressions Plus, you won't be disappointed!!!!!

Before I got in contact with Yuri, I had literally been told by other wedding planners that we needed to add 10k to our wedding budget. I was feeling totally defeated after that, but reached out to Yuri at the suggestion of my sister. I couldn't be happier that I did. Yuri immediately began texting me and telling me what ideas she had and vendors she had in mind for working within my budget. Her enthusiasm for what she does was so contagious it immediately lifted my spirits back up. She was available whenever I needed her, and kept me on top of deadlines. She also reminded me of all the little things that go into weddings and stuff to make sure I didn't miss a single detail. Also, she had a variety of vendors that she recommended who all did an amazing job for my wedding. She made my very vague ideas about how I wanted my wedding to be a reality. :)

I had a wonderful experience with MK Events. I needed a wedding weekend welcome bag program, koozies, and escort cards. I had a very specific vision as I am not fancy and wanted a beer and camping theme instead. MK Events worked with me to give me the perfect event. I will post pictures when I get the professional pictures back. Although they were in Texas and I was in NJ, we had zero problems communicating via email. I highly recommend this team!

I am so happy I found Southern Celebrations on Thumbtack. Not only are they amazing decorators, they are awesome people. I could not even imagine my daughter and son-in-laws wedding turning out as wonderful as it did. From our very first meeting, to the day of the wedding, they were there every step of the way. I did not have to worry about a thing. I definitely would recommend them for any special day you have coming up. You will not be sorry.

Donna from Much Obliged Events was invaluable in helping our wedding go smoothly. We used the Weekend-Of package, with a few extra additions. Donna first met with us to get an idea of our vision and was able to answer many of our basic questions with her experience in wedding and event planning. She kept in contact via email and text (my preference) and provided us a spreadsheet to organize everything. This included several things I hadn't even thought of! We met again before the wedding to go over everything, and capture any details that were missed. Once our schedule was nailed down, she created a timeline for us and vendors to use on the wedding day. Our rehearsal was challenging since our wedding party was very chatty and unfocused in their excitement, but Donna took charge and gave very clear instructions. She handled much of our venue setup for us, and had a list of where all items go after the event. The day-of, she was ready-to-go and took care of details as they came up. I'm sure there were things that did not go as planned, but everything was taken care of before the issue got to me or the groom. I think our large reception would be stressful for any coordinator, but Donna handled everything that was needed behind the scenes. Everything for our wedding seemed to magically come together thanks to Donna and it was wonderful to enjoy the day with each other and our guests without worrying about managing the details ourselves. I would highly recommend Much Obliged Events, and was very pleased with the quality of work!

We had the pleasure of working with Etheny over a seven month period in the planning of our son's wedding, rehearsal dinner, and reception and can highly recommend her without reservation. Her level of dedication and attention to detail was evident in the outstanding choice of venues and their staffs, the décor and catering and the photography. I was particularly impressed with the way she handled last minute ceremony changes that became necessary because of inclement weather. Her decisiveness and professionalism calmed all our nerves and made the day one we will remember with joy. We had a elegant affair in which our guests were lavishly entertained for far less than many of the quotes we had received ourselves. We were totally satisfied and will be using Arrow Planning for all our important future events.

If you are planning a wedding, rest assured you are in good hands with Megan. I was a nervous wreck in the days leading up to our wedding because I completely lack any sense of creativity required to decorate in general, let alone decorate a large venue for our wedding reception. I sat down with Megan and told her what I had so far (which wasn't much) and showed her pictures of the venue. After that she stepped in and took control of everything--it was like a weight was immediately lifted off my shoulders. Our wedding venue looked absolutely AMAZING thanks to Megan's creative flair and attention to detail. She was able to take the random items we purchased on our own to decorate with and transform them into a beautiful display. She also crafted unique chalkboard displays and ribbon wands for us that were just fantastic. All that being said, Megan's talents are not limited to decoration & design. She also coordinated with our florist to ensure our flowers were delivered on time and had the florist make design changes to the bouquets that significantly enhanced their appearance. She also created unique centerpieces for our reception. I cannot tell you how many compliments we've received about how stunning our reception looked and it is all thanks to Megan!

I’m that person who hates planning! I got engaged in September and wanted to get married at the end of March. At the beginning of March I had literally nothing done. When I found Lauren, I told her how important that date was to me and she just took charge and had my whole wedding planned in about 3 weeks. All I had to do was answer a string of “yes” or “no’s” to options she would give me. Not only did she do everything for me, she was very hands-on. We got to the venue late and my hairdresser had already shown up so I had to go sit and get ready with none of the decorations set up. I could see everything from the window and watched Lauren hauling tables and chairs across the lawn, down a hill, to set them up. I felt really guilty sitting there getting pampered while she was doing all the hard work. My wedding was absolutely gorgeous and looked like a storybook. None of it would have come together without Lauren!

We hired Janelle just a few days before the wedding and we were so happy that we did! Se did a custom pkg for us that ended up being perfecdt for us. She had a package for set up and clean up, and we did that but we also added a few separate services. She put together all of our centerpieces, picked up my dress and helped with some other crafts that I hadn't finished. Withoug hiring her, I don't know if I would have walked down the aisle with my hair done or not! I only wish that I had hired her sooner!

    I hired Edford Farmhouse to supply a few decor pieces for my wedding because they have beautiful stuff, and I ended up hiring their owner Dani for day of coordination. She made the event run so smoothly, I’m so glad she had everything handled and I didn’t have to worry!! I would definitely recommend them and Dani is really wonderful :)

    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.
