We used ECC&C for a company holiday party at the Estates Wine Room in Pioneer Square, and couldn't have been more please with the service we were provided. From my first contact with them, to the thank you hugs at the end of the night... these guys are great! They took the time to listen to what our vision of our event was, and planned a fantastic menu for us within our budget and desires. Not to mention... the food was FANTASTIC! I heard nothing but positive comments all night. I would, and will use them again for future events! -lcb

The Great Surprisal was hired to be our event coordinator as well as serving as our emcee. This is an annual dinner/fundraiser for a small non-profit. Amelia worked with us from the beginning finding a caterer, hiring musicians, working with venue, coordinating volunteers for our silent auction as well as other parts of our evening. We increased our net income by over 25%! We had used the venue before but with the creativity and cost conscious Great Surprisal we had a totally transformed 'gym' from years gone by. Past attendees commented on the greatly improved environment, excellent food and the overall sense of a better-planned event. We will work with The Great Surprisal again and encourage others to do so. Last year we worked with The Great Suprisal as an emcee only. Customers should definitely check out 'Gina' as an addition to a party or event. We are very pleased with The Great Surprisal's work ethic and creativity of working on a limited budget.

I hired them for a Halloween event and they OVER delivered in a huge way! The party lights, music, fog, and mc were the hit of the party! They made the event one of the best I have produced in 30 years and definitely made me look good as the event planner. I will definitely hire them again for future events and would highly recommend them.

Shelby was simply amazing from the first day we met her all the way through our wedding day. She didn’t miss a beat and helped make sure our wedding day went off without a hitch. During the planning process, she did a great job keeping us sane when issues would arise, and calmly helped develop mitigation plans to keep things on track. We would recommend her 100 times out of 100 to plan any event and are so thankful that we found her. Thanks so much Shelby for everything you did! R & K

They did a great job of bringing my vision for the reception and shades of blue & white color scheme to life. She contributed many good design ideas of her own. Affordable prices, they help us have a great event on a limited budget. Wonderful people, a joy to work with.

Mardee's Design and Consulting helped me put together my office's holiday event and it could not have gone better! Mary worked tirelessly to make sure all the details were in place and that everything fit within my budget by the end. Being a first-time event planner, I had next to no idea where to start but Mary was able to walk me through the process and create a vision of what would work best for my company within the unusual space we were using. I appreciated not only their professionalism but also their warm and generous support, which ensured that the whole process was a delight. Thank you again, Mardee's, for helping make our 2015 event a memorable one!

Melody was so helpful in the planning of our florals and in the day of set up of our garland for our wedding! Everything looked wonderful and people keep telling us how much they loved our bouquets! My favorite part was the tiny pine cones she included in the groomsmen corsages!

Christine at Urban Pantry provided catering for my son and daughter-in-law's wedding reception November 2017 and everything was absolutely amazing! The food was creative and delicious! Christine met with the bride and myself and created a custom menu that was perfect for the vision my daughter in law had for her special day! It was at a very reasonable cost , everyone who catered the event was very professional and it was an overall great experience. Thank you Christine and Urban Pantry!!! I also personally purchase the home cooked meals to help with dinners during my busy work week. The food is always top notch and delicious! I'd recommend Urban Pantry to anyone needing to Cater an event or just some help with meals during the week! Karen S - Snohomish, WA

    Bianca was exceptional to work with! She arrived extra early to our wedding, helped set up, beautifully directed and coordinated all venue staff, caterers, servers, guests, and oversaw everything! It's very hard to hand over control to someone and can trust they understand not only your high expectations but also, your vision down to every little detail and on such an important day. Bianca handled everything with such style, professionalism and grace... she made it so easy that I could focus on getting ready, knowing it was all under control. I would use her again for any event in a heartbeat! I highly recommend her to everyone. Thank you, Bianca for making our day extra Special and so seamless!

    Innovative events planned the most fabulous baby shower for me. From the decorations, the games and wonderful spread of food it was beyond what I ever could have imagined. Stephanie and Nikki were extremely personable and made every effort to work within my budget to throw the beautiful shower. They took care of all set-up/ clean up and made sure all the guests knew where to find parking, directions, etc. They are truly THE Dream Team. I will use them in the future for all of my special event planning needs.

    Katie at Cascade Event planned an event for my business party and it turned out excellent! Katie was very professional yet relaxed at the same time. The event went seamlessly, everything from the major logistics to the minute details. Everyone loved the party (particularly the decor) which I attribute mostly to Katie and her planning. I will definitely use Cascade Event Design in the future.

    About

    I am a Chinese event planner and designer. I had to pause my career when I came to the U.S. 10 years ago. My first business was for my best friend, which was free because I just did it for fun. After that, I started my career and I was doing very well because I love to design. I have been planning to resume my career for a long time here, and finally, I started last year. My goal this year is that I want to help my clients to capture their special events that they've been dreaming of.

    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.
