I have this posted in the OC board- but i thought the LA bees might find this info helpful since my DOC is based in LA.
I just wanted to share with you info on my DOC (day of coordinator). I had my wedding last Friday on 3/19. Because of our strict budget, our wedding was a DIY wedding. As such, I needed someone to day of the wedding to help me with doing what I wanted to do, but obviously could not do on the day of our wedding. I found my coordinator, Jen Akasaka, who helped me execute everything I had asked her to do.
I had napkins that needed to be folded, with menu cards inserted, wrapped with a paper flower for each table setting, as well as placement of forks, spoons and favors. She also helped me decorate and assemble our escort card tree; set up the guest sign in table/ gift table; during cocktail hour she grabbed the chairs we used for the ceremony and moved them into the reception room (we were trying to save the expense of having to pay for double chairs)…. AND at the end of the night, she helped us tear down the paper lanterns we had hanging, packed all our gifts into out cars, along with the decorations, AND she even packed us some food just in case we were still hungry.
I cannot recommend her enough! She was magnificent to work with and completely streamlined the wedding. There was not one thing I was stressed about– she truly helped in making the wedding PERFECT! Her prices are also realllllly affordable- which again, was nice since we were on a budget. It was welllll worth the money!!
If anyone is interested- she’s located in LA, but my wedding was in OC so I’m pretty sure she travels 🙂 – her info is as follows:
