I am getting married in late October of this and having a small wedding with no more than 50 guests (hopefully a lot less) and looking for a wedding coordinator that’s great but also doesn’t cost too much. I dont know what’s a good price for one, but I am open to newbies that are trying to get business. The ceremony will be at a park and the reception at a nearby restaurant.
I just feel sooooo overwhelmed with the amount of choices out there that I don’t even know where to start. Any leads or reccomendations are greatly appreciated!

Day of coordinator will be around 500 to 1000 in the LA area. I hired Sophia Kim Park from Spark Events consulting for my LA wedding. I think she was good for her price. She did her job, but I think some things could have gone better on my wedding day. I mean I couldn’t have done my wedding without her, there were some miscommunication and disorganization on my wedding day. I don’t think my guests noticed at all, but I knew. In fact, all of them thought my wedding was flawless. She’s good if you hired her for more than just day of coordinator. She knows a lot of vendors in the wedding industry, so she hooked us up with good vendors at discounted rates. I hired her for her price, but if I had more money to spend on my wedding planner, I actually would have hired A Good Affair Wedding & Event Production instead. They were more expensive, but I really had a good experience, talking to them and they seemed extremely professional and nice, but alas too expensive. I called about 20 wedding planners in the LA area (my venue required a planner and gave me a list of 20 coordinators that I could choose from), and I think they were the most pleasant ones. If you Yelp them, you could see that they have glowing reviews. Good luck!

I also had a small wedding (20 people) in a park, and a reception in a restaurant. We used All Things Imagined http://allimagined.com/ It’s a husband and wife team and they are great. And their rates were a deal, especially considering we got both of them. So one went on-site at the park and supervised set up while the other stayed at my home to help coordinate hair and makeup, dress, schedules, etc. It was perfect. I live in OC but they probably do LA.
