I have a wedding planner that is trying to help me, but I keep doing everything myself, so far. I know she will be awesome on the day of though.

I am planning the wedding on my own with my mom and FMIL. A wedding planner was not in my budget. Some quoted me over 6k, some 3500 but the cheapest I got was 2500.

As far as the planning goes, doing it myself cause I really enjoy it. =) We do have DOC’s for the wedding in Mexico and the at home reception here in MI so I don’t have to worry about things the day of.

I did it on my own. DH’s aunt acted as our DOC which was amazing!

@Blissful Events LLC: Because I love to do it. I am planning to be a wedding planner after my wedding. I am already in the wedding business, so it will just be an extension of what I already offer my brides.

We are hiring 2 DOC. They will be there to make sure everything gets setup properly, as well as help w/ seating arrangements. We would go absolutely bonkers w/out coordinators.

I am a doc so I don’t know if it’s fair to answer the question even though I am having an emotional breakdown right now lol.  But my best friends are wedding pros so they are always there for me to bounce my ideas off of.

eta yes… i am using a doc and i honestly think unless you have an uber organized friend or family member it’s best to have one.  unless you are having a really laid back wedding, but even then, i would give someone a list of times that you want to cut your cake etc

We are having a DOC who “comes with” our venue, but who is also kind of acting like a partial coordinator.. but we are pretty much doing it on our own!
