    budget willing, i really want a DOC.

    i think i can handle the actual planning, DIYing projects, researching and booking venues on my own ( with the help of my mom ), but whenever i picture the actual wedding day i get REALLY nervous about logistics..being on time..coordinating all the vendors…etc. A DOC would ease my mind a great deal and be worth every penny in my eyes.

    I’m using a DOC. On the day of, I don’t want to be organizing anything or stressing out over anything.

    We are meeting with one tomorrow! I didn’t think we would – we were planning on having a family member coordinate the day of, but things are really getting out of control and so we are opting to hire one. She will be a “week of” coordinator, with 4 on-site meetings and unlimited phone calls and emails. I’m sooo thrilled!!

    We didn’t need either.  Thankfully the location was able to set things up for us and since they were a restaurant, they knew what to do the food!

    Sorry to be naive but I’m not sure what the abbreivs in the poll stand for (I’m new here!). However, we get a co-ordinator on the day with most of the venues we are looking at 🙂

    Our reception facility has a person who basically acts like a coordinator – following up with musicians, photographer, etc to make sure everyone knows when to arrive.  She also handles the coordination of the day of.  I’m happy we don’t need to hire someone else!

    I HIGHLY recommend a DOC.  We loved ours and she helped make our day so easy and relaxing.  I didn’t have to worry about anything because I knew she was taking care of EVERY detail.  One of my BMs attended another wedding a couple of weeks later (who didn’t have a DOC) and said the stress level between me and the other bride was off the charts different. 

    I took care of visualizing design elements, finding and contracting with vendors, etc… but she helped to execute everything the day of, manage the timeline and vendors as well as run the rehearsal on Friday and it was worth every penny we spent.

    We have a DOC and she is already proving her she is worth her weight in gold!! (and the wedding is still 6months away!)
