there are Day of Coordinators you can hire who will set up all of your DIY stuff on the day of the wedding without being a full out wedding coordinator. I have the mothers of my bridesmaids & friends who are willing to go early & make sure things are set up, so maybe you can try that? They offered though, i didnt ask them. Just start talking about how much youre doing yourself and will have to set up and maybe someone will offer to help!

Mrs.BBQ:  We hired a planner immediately after we got engaged. I swear my planner is a god send. He has taken the stress and difficulty out of wedding planning and has made this whole experience incredibly enjoyable. Yes, they cost $$$ but he has already saved us over $14,000 by using preferred vendors, negotiating contracts, and leaning on current relationships he has with the florist, caterer, rentals, etc. Since we are not planning on getting married again, we are most likely not repeat customers but the planners are incentizing the vendors to do a great job for repeat business.
