I think a DOC (or a friend who can act as one) is always a good ideas for the bride.  It takes a lot of stress off the bride for the wedding day. 

I find that some planners charge what they do because they think they can, not because its a reasonable amount.   Here are the options that I can think of, I’m sure others may have more.

1.  Call some local planners and tell them your amount and see if they will negotiate.

2.  Place an ad on Craigslist under Gigs>Events.   Give your date, amount and requirements.  You may get a lot of responses, just be sure to interview and talk with the candidates.  Ask for resumes or references. 

3. See if any of the local colleges who have event planning/management classes could refer students.

What month do you need a DOC for and how many hours do you think you need the DOC for?  I think a lot of times, it costs a lot because people have events on their wedding day for the entire day.  For example, I know Chinese weddings normally start really early in the morning such as 9 and probably won’t end until 10 or midnight.  If you explain how little you need done to a potential DOC, he/she may be willing to do it for that price. 

If you can’t find anyone, let me know and I’ll do it for you for that price.

Just and idea, why don’t you ask another bride.  Who else would know how to help you better than someone who is also going through the wedding planning process.  Maybe someone here would be willing to help you out in return for help at her wedding.
