I’m DIY-ing a bunch but I have hired a day-of coordinator to handle things on my actual wedding day.  I don’t want to be running around, setting things up, and handling vendors when I should be relaxing and enjoying the time with my family.  I can’t even contemplate how that would work.  My DOC cost 850 in Central VA, but you can search for old posts to see how much other bee’s DOC cost.  I definitely recommend a day-of person if you can work it into the budget.

We were able to hire a coordinator for just the set up and we may use her for break down too if it’s in the budget.  Each is just $250!  Our photographer’s wife is also a wedding coordinator and will likely be our 2nd photographer so she is going to do it for us!  I have friends and family who could do it but I’d rather spend that time with them and take great pictues.

We’re in Daytona Beach Florida, btw, in case you were wondering.  I’m sure prices are different everywhere.  This is her standard price, apparently; we didn’t just get a good deal bc we booked with her husband.  She’s setting up both the ceremony and complete reception.  Hope that helps!

@ValerieC:  I did a total DIY wedding.  With the internet its so easy now.  We ordered blank invitations and made our own.  I found a template I liked and we totally recreatded the programs.  I contacted my own florist, bakery, caterer etc etc etc.  I have a GREAT MOH who did a lot of this for me so I was LUCKY!   I couldn’t afford a coordinator…..and I didn’t see the need…
