The food was wonderful. The fruit display looked very nice. I told you 150 people but we had some surprise guest. All together we had at least 200 and still had enough food and took some home. The table was set up beautifully. I cried when I saw the reception hall. Thank you for Chef Zimmerman for catering my wedding. You have made my day remember.

Ms. Crystal is a GOD SEND. I became overwhelmed close to the end of my wedding planning, just before the wedding date, and started to lose control. Crystal brought her team in and they took over and cleaned up every issue that I had and did more in a very short period of time. She was knowledgeable, efficient, orderly, and organized. Every loophole I had, THEY FILLED. Photography, decor, and planning - she's definitely an expert in her craft. If she can't do it then she knew multiple people who could. IF you want someone who knows what they are doing, CALL CRYSTAL!!! SHE WILL GET IT DONE.

I can't say enough positive words about Soirees by Lauren! We hired them for our wedding on 9/23/2017, and to say they handled so many minor stresses we (the bride & groom) wouldn't want to deal with on our wedding day would be an understatement! We met with Ashley many months in advance, and from that moment on I knew she knew what she was doing! A couple weeks prior to our wedding day she sent me a questionnaire that was so in-depth it hit details I hadn't even thought of! At the rehearsal, we had Allie, who took control and helped make sure everything would run smoothly while still listening to my concerns (I wanted to walk from a different location so as not to be seen until right near the ceremony site, and she was very helpful in pitching ideas and making sure it was ultimately how I wanted it). The rehearsal was quick & easy! The wedding day we had Allie & Mariah, and they had our printed out questionnaire and notes and took care of so many little details I had stressed over! By the time we finished photos of the bridal party, I looked over and they had broken down and packed up all of our ceremony decorations! They set all of our favors and place cards up for us and at the end of the night, everything at our reception was carefully packed away in our family's vehicles. I would recommend this team to anyone planning a wedding - they are worth every penny for the so many things they take of prior to & during the wedding!

I had a wonderful experience with Curtis. I planned my wedding in Virginia from another state. He was great to work with. He was very efficient with contacting me before the wedding. I appreciated that he wanted to meet up before the event to meet us and to talk face to face. During the event, he was wonderful !!! He played everything to our requests and much more. Everyone at the wedding said how pleasant he was to talk to and that he did a great job with the music. I can't thank him enough for being a part of our day.

Tara did an amazing job with coordinating my wedding as a day-of planner. She kept consistent contact with me throughout the months prior to the wedding. She attended my final details appointment and the rehearsal. She was always punctual, encouraging, thoughtful, and provided lots of good ideas and positive feedback. On the day of the wedding, she went above-and-beyond with the venue set up; she doled out tasks to helpers in a useful manner, and was working diligently to make sure that everything came together on-time, and according to how I had envisioned. She rolled-with-the-punches when we had a few hiccups in our schedule, and did a great job with communicating with the vendors and keeping the events moving in a timely manner. I am grateful to Tara for all of her hard work, patience, and help. She really helped to make my wedding a success.

Kellie DJed my wedding and she was amazing! She is very personable and gave me a price I couldn't say no to. I gave her a list of a few songs that I had to have and she made an amazing playlist around those. There was never a dull moment. She kept my guests up and moving throughout the reception. I am so pleased with the way my special day turned out. Thanks Kellie!!

Curtis was amazing to work with since day one! Very good communication and follow through! He also gives amazing suggestions and is great at what he does! I couldn't be more happy with our wedding day and a large part was because of how easy he made the process and made sure it flowed well and made sure everything was on time! I strongly recommend him to anyone planning a wedding or event! You won't be disappointed!

I can not say enough about Simply D'Vine Catering. We planned a backyard spring wedding at my mother in law's house, it all sounded so perfect until it poured a couple of days before the wedding and left the yard a muddy disaster. In spite of this, the owner of this company saved our wedding. Not only did set up the most beautiful cocktail hour, but our guests still rave about the amazing food she prepared. She also helped with decorations, and set up our sand ceremony, and our beautiful cake table, all while PREGNANT! Amazing amazing amazing! We are still so grateful.

I had the privilege of working with Xclusive Creation for my wedding day. From the beginning of planning until the day I jumped the broom, she was very professional, punctual and supportive in what I wanted to do. I'm glad that I went with the company because I was stress-free and had the wedding that my husband and I envisioned. Again, thank you Cindy for everything you've done for my husband and I! --Lakia Robinson

Verified review

Our wedding was on April 28th and needless to say, it went off without a hitch! (no wedding pun intended) A wedding with two brides can get very emotional and even more hectic, BUT BNZ came in a absolutely made this day memorable for me, my wife, our families, and all of the attendees of our nuptials. From DAY 1, Nikki and the BNZ team made me and my wife a PRIORITY. Work Quality? Impeccable and incomparable. Nikki went above and beyond in EVERY step to getting our wedding complete. She is meticulous in note taking, very alert and observant in the personalities of her clients, and cognoscente of a various numbers of vendors who will cater to any and all of your needs in whatever event she is planning for you. Professionalism? Could you imagine not having to lift a finger because Nikki is there to make contact with everyone that is important to your special day? She is the one who asks every question and scrutinizes every detail to ensure that your event is to your expectation of perfection. Responsiveness? From the jump Nikki was on my phone whether via text, email, or through a call. And whether it was me or a vendor, she was more than responsive when a decision needed to be made. Nikki respected our work schedules and was very communicative if she wasn't available, even though in those times, she was still there for me to call. Nikki is invaluable! She is nonjudgmental and is a firm believer in that what you want is what you shall have. Her entire team made sure that all the portions of the wedding were smooth and even more than what we could have imagined. Punctuality is not even a worry with Nikki and her team. If she says she will be there, she's there 15 minutes ahead of time for meeting and will stay until the wee hours of the night just to make sure that there is no stone un-turned, no T not crossed, no I not dotted. BNZ was present when we couldn't be and trust and believe, her presence was known for all of the days leading up to our wedding. She is reasonably priced and exceeded any expectation I had in what a planner actually does. Anyone who hires her is finding a gem.

    This simple review cannot possibly contain enough words to completely express our appreciation for Lauren’s services. When it came time to select a wedding planner, we were very fortunate we found her. We are still in awe when we look back on everything she did for us before, during and after the wedding. Without her help our special day would not have been the picture perfect event my wife always dreamed of. Lauren’s preparation, planning and attention to detail was spectacular. We thank her so much. We appreciate her more than words can say. We definitely recommend Lauren for her wedding coordinator services!

    BHVA did an awesome job at planning my wedding day. Everything was done virtually up until the wedding rehearsal and wedding day. We corresponded via email and text message throughout the day. Their team made sure we stayed on schedule with deadlines they set ( ex. Picking flowers and blocking off rooms for guest in hotels). They assisted with picking venues by providing options for me to choose from that they already filtered through based on my needs. The day before the wedding was smooth sailing. There team made sure I was okay with the order and timeline. I would definitely use them for further events. The virtual wedding planner is perfect for those who can't meet. For example, my wedding was in Maryland and they are located in Virginia

    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.
