Self Impressions catering has been hired to cater our lunches 3 days a week. They are so friendly and try to get to know everyone while we are hanging around. They are always open to suggestions on what to make for us and are great at providing gluten free and vegetarian options. To say their food is amazing is an understatement. Try their pork tacos, pot roast, or chinese chicken salad and you can't go wrong! We have hired them for offsite events and will continue to hire them! They are always on time and have been flexible with our schedule changes. We are so happy to have found them on Thumbtack!!!

I've gotta say that Angela Thompson Cordova is one hard working woman! I can totally see why you would hire a wedding or event planner now. I watched her in action at an event that I helped her with. She kept having people come and ask her tons of questions about what was next and what people need to do. She had all the answers and kept the event running smoothly. I would hate for my day to feel overwhelmed by questions when I'm supposed to be enjoying the day. I love that she takes the hassle out of having a party and makes it so you enjoy your day. Props to Angela!

    I have worked alongside many people throughout my 8+ years in the event industry. To succeed and achieve optimal results, a planner must have a unique skill set to succeed; Kayla is one of those planners. When working with Kayla, my worries and stress is eliminated because I know I can rely on her sense of judgment, ability to follow through on projects, and stay well-under budget. She gets it! Kayla has the ability to see the whole picture from conception to clean-up. It's always a pleasure working with Kayla!

      I loved working with Emily on my daughters wedding! Emily had honest advise that gave us good direction as we planned her wedding day and reception that evening. She was so organized and enthusiastic throughout the months of planning and was always willing to help us work through any unexpected events. She also had great recommendations for other professionals such as table and chairs, caterers, even chalkboard artists. This was the first wedding we have had to plan in our family and having Emily as our wedding planner really helped make my daughters wedding special and stress free!! Thank you Emily for helping us through the process!!

        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.

        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.
