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 could not more pleased with the food and the professionalism of Chef Emme. In planning our corporate event for 70 people, she worked with us to create the menu that we wanted within the budget that we had available. Her professionalism was also top notch. I had not been able to secure chafing trays or enough canned heat to accommodate the order that I had made, but Chef Emme came prepared with extra supplies on hand to meet a need that I did not yet know I had. She even helped us set up the event and gave us invaluable advice on how to keep the food warm and delicious throughout our event. I highly recommend Chef Emme for her food, her service, and for the ease of doing business with her. It could not have been easier to document and pay our invoice, or to work with her on late changes.

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.

Where can I begin with how amazing Britta is? We hired Britta as our day of wedding coordinator and both of my husband have been raving about her since our wedding day. I am very organized in nature and as much as I wish everything to go my way on the day of, they do not. However, Britta was there in every step and minute to remediate any of issues that came up. She remains calm but fun throughout all our entire event. Our venue was very large with 170 guests and Britta was a champ at coming to my side whenever I texted her out of panic. I have so much respect for all coordinators after watching Britta work. We 100% recommend Britta as your next coordinator and planner!

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

I contacted Joy on very short notice for a company Christmas party. She quickly furnished me with several great menus to choose from. We did a non hosted event, and I probably only had to interact with a total of 20 minutes to plan the entire event. The food was great, and the portions were very large. My employees were very happy. I absolutely recommend Joy Max Catering.

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!

Charnell has been one of the greatest professions have ever met. She has utmost quality for work and was amazed the value a she provided and her dedication for the quote she provided. She exactly delivered what we thought of with great creativity.. She travelled to venue to study the concept and she did lot of work prior to the event. She has put in many extra hours for the marvelous look that she planned and gave lot of extra goodies for the kids in addition to what she committed. Strongly recommend for all the great parties.

Ester Allen, event planning extraordinaire, sweetest wedding vendor ever and friend. How can I ever thank you enough for the wonderful wedding you helped set up and plan for me and Jeff? You were prepared at every single one of our meetings, with check-lists, forms, and a big smile. You traveled across the country just to be there for me and Jeff on our big day! You made the day go so smoothly that I had zero stress and was able to dance the night away with my now husband! Your communication was impeccable and prompt. You made the whole process joyful, full of small surprises, and reminded us why we were getting married in the first place. You were the first one to arrive and the last one to leave. You also went above and beyond to ensure that all the vendors knew the details and schedule of the day. Your lovely and charming personality made it so easy for all the vendors to work with. Without you I couldn’t have ever done it by myself. Your impressive experience in the industry is what convinced me that you were the perfect fit! I admire your work so much and can’t wait to share it with other newly engaged couples! You are so talented, and I couldn't be happier with the memories we made that day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

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!

Cassie is the queen of wedding coordinating. Because of Cassie and her expertise, the process of planning our daughter's wedding was stress free from beginning to end. Cassie provided service far beyond what we expected from a "day of" coordinator. She may be the most organized person on earth. We received timely e-mails providing monthly and weekly timelines, ideas, options. Cassie thought of everything! Some days we exchanged ten e-mails/texts. Once we had our vendor contracts, we passed them on to Cassie for managing. I never had to contact a vendor again. She made three venue visits with us and conducted the ceremony rehearsal. She coordinated absolutely every detail of the wedding day. Friends and family members remarked at how relaxed we seemed during the months of wedding planning -- again, thanks to Cassie. Her professional, no-nonsense approach kept us on track and prepared us to host the biggest party of our lives. On the wedding day Cassie brought two helpers, and they all spent at least eight hours working the event. When I arrived at the venue that morning, I asked Cassie what I can do to help. She responded with something like, "Nothing. Enjoy the day." :-) I truly don't know how families pull off something as important as a wedding without the services of a skilled coordinator. Of all the decisions to be made in the wedding planning process, our absolutely best decision was hiring Cassie!

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!

    If you're looking for beautiful venue. Maris Farm is for you. I was fortunate to be able to celebrate my 50th birthday at Maris Farms. For an outdoor space you have pumpkins and corn growing in the background and a stunning view of Mount Rainier. We had a DJ and danced Under The Lights it was truly a memorable evening. Thank you to the Maris staff for making me feel like family.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
