Honestly, I think all DOCs are different in what they offer to do.  They all might do the same general thing but be different in the little things they do.  My DOC is still starting out (has had her own coordinating business for about a year), charges based on need and I got a friend discount.  I am paying a little under $500.

She basically offers to jump in 6 – 4 weeks before the wedding, meet with all your vendors, review your vendor contracts to make sure you get what you want/need, is there the day-of to set up and shut down everything, will organize your rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, will assist with your bachelorette party & bridal shower and is there for support from you from the time you sign your contract.  There’s much more that she’ll do, but that’s what’s just coming off the top of my head.

$750 is a great deal!  make sure she does as much as the other coordinators…

Mine is $1875 and she is meeting with our vendors, making a super intense timeline for the day, coming to the rehersal, etc etc. And I LOVE her! OMG my DoC is like, my most favorite person on the wedding planet.

Glad you found someone less expensive! Just be sure to specify exactly what you want her to do. For us, we really need someone to boss people around (so we look like the good guy’s) and just peace of mind that if anything major starts to crumble, they will fix it before we notice. We are paying $1800, but getting 3 coordinators for day-of and starting 2 months out will start to organize everything. But we are still being super specific about things we NEED our DOC to take care of so there is no confusion. I’ve heard horror stories about MIA DOC’s and it’s like – that’s all you were supposed to do is coordinate the wedding and you just sat around and watched like a guest.

I personally don’t know, but I was watching Rich Bride/ Poor Bride and on each show the wedding coordinator coast $2,000.
