We’re having a wedding with less than fifty people and we’re having a DOC. Sure, we could easily handle the set-up and details ourselves, but there’s the thing. I don’t WANT to. I want to enjoy myself on my wedding day and not worry about the details. I want someone who will take care of me and take care of things on the day, and I found a really great DOC who will do just that!

I think it would be nice, but like you, I’m having a smallish wedding of 50-65 people.  I personally don’t think a DOC is needed for a small wedding as there isn’t as much hoopla to worry about. Very simple just like the guest list in my opinion. I guess it also depends on the kind of wedding you are having. Ceremony and reception in different locations? Lots of extra stuff at the reception? Etc. I just personally feel that a DOC is not needed for a smaller wedding–also considering they charge an arm and a leg. If one is having a large wedding of 150+ and can do it then I would probably say DEFINITELY have a DOC.

We are having a small wedding, and although I’d love to splurge on a DOC, I just can’t swing it because we are hopefully building a house this Fall. I have a friend that is going to help out at the reception in getting things are setup for me! Even though its a small wedding, I am following all of the normal traiditions, it’s just on a smaller scale!

I will probably have ~80 guests and I would love to get a DOC if there’s 1 for hire within my budget. I’m still working on it. I would consider a DOC bordeline between “would be awesome to have” and “a splurge.” DOC just takes care of the logistics so that my family, friends and I can totally slack off and be carefree. That’s quite valuable to me.
