No, you don’t NEED one but they are nice to have around. MY DOC pretty much made sure we were on time for things, had everything we needed, went to get anything I forgot and made sure DH didn’t see me before I was ready.

The best thing I told her was that if anything went wrong that I didn’t want to know and she just needed to fix it.

It’s FREE … take it.  you’ll be surprised at the last minute crap that people will be coming to you to answer about and you just want to hang with your girls.  IF she was charging i’d say no way but … she knows what she’s doing .. it’s free… let her

your flowers don’t show … you want to be on your cell pulling your dress over your head arguing with someone or.. have her do it?

I think it depends on how complicated your wedding is going to be. If the ceremony and reception are at different venues, there is complicated setup and no one to help, if there are a lot of elements involved, then a coordinator might be nice. But if you have a venue that does a lot of that stuff for you, a coordinator is totally unnecessary. It just depends.

I would usually say that you don’t NEED one.  However, I went to a wedding this weekend where they didn’t have one and it was a disaster.  There was no schedule as to when things were going to happen.  We found ourselves waiting for 30 minutes in front of a plate of food to eat because the bridal party should be introduced, we didn’t know where things were located.  Zero direction.

The wedding was beautiful but organization and timeliness do matter to guests and the DOC really help with that.
