The owner at our venue was pretty much our DOC. If she weren’t there, I would have hired someone. The day before the wedding I showed her all of my stuff and told her what I wanted to do with it, and the day of the wedding it was all set up for us perfectly. She made it so easy for us, and way less stressful then if I was doing it myself.

I am a wedding planner and I am having a DOC, so I say if you can squeeze it in, get one. You won’t want to have to worry about things getting set up, broken down, etc., on your wedding day, and in my opinion, it is not really fair to delegate that task to family and friends. Your family and friends will have a much better experience, if they are able to just enjoy the day with you, and not have to worry about everything else. Also, if they don’t do something exactly to your specifications, you won’t have to worry about getting hurt feelings.

Our venue coordinator acts as the DOC but we also hired an actual DOC. I actually found her on here and best of all, she’s FREE! She’s branching out on her own so while she builds her portfolio, she’s offering a few couples free DOC services in exchange for some reviews. I met with her a few weeks ago and I am 100% confident that she will absolutely exceed my expectations. 

At first I didn’t really think that I would need a DOC since I’m kind of OCD and I figured I could handle everything myself but now that I have one, I’m really excited that I won’t have to worry about anything. I really think that having the DOC will make not only our wedding but also the week or so leading up to it, much less stressful. If you can afford it, I think you absolutely should hire someone.

I thankfully found mine on Craigslist!!! She interned with a well known Wedding Planner, and is now branching off on her own. Im thrilled to be working with her. She definitely keeps me on top of things and organized! And I know it’ll be great for the Day Of, so I can enjoy it as much as possible!

We have an event coordinator that works for the venue (and her priority is the venue, not our wedding) and I also hired a DOC once I realized I had absolutely 100% NO IDEA how to make all of the peices fit together and stay on time during the actual wedding day.

I am so happy we were able to squeeze one into the budget.
