Here in Washington DC the going rate is between $750-1750 for DOC, depending on experience.  Hope that helps!

I’m getting married in Southern Maine- my coordinator is from New Husband so maybe this will help you!
She is charging $725 for day of coordination- which amazingly includes months of phone calls, emails, planning, everything!

I called around to a lot of different coordinators, ranging in price from $500 to $3000 all in that area.  I also talked to one coordinator who did only one package- full coordination/planning of everything- $10,000.

Yikes! Some of these quotes sound pricey! My friends do it for each other for free! Then we buy them a really nice gift afterwards. =) We asked one friend to coordinate the ceremony and another to coordinate the reception so not one person is bogged down. Maybe if you try to get quotes for just the Ceremony or just the Reception part it might be cheaper?? Dont know if that would work….

I paid $1400 for a team of 2 DOC’s in NYC.  2 pre-meetings and unlimited email and phone calls.  To echo what’s been said, WORTH EVERY PENNY.  They took care of missing tuxedos, late transportation, missing lunch delivery. forgotten tea for the tea ceremony, discovering the door I was to enter through for the ceremony locked from the outside, and probably 100 other miscellenous things I would have not accounted for.

My coordinator (in the Sacramento Valley area of California) was $1300 for her full services. I love her already!!

I asked an extremely organized and level-headed woman, a friend of mine from work whose daughter had recently got married, to do it.  She was like a second personal attendant, and considered it an honor to be asked.  Maybe you know somone like that?  Especially a mom who’s had a daughter get married so she knows what’s all happening.  It really worked out great for us.

 What she did: coordinated reception decorating (I had a picture of a mockup table for her, as well as a detailed list), made sure all our DIY flowers arrived and were placed, coordinated the entire family and wedding party and prompted them when to go down the aisle, and also she oversaw the reception teardown, making sure all the things I wanted to keep got sent with the right people.  She was AMAZING!

I’m in San Francisco and prices have been lower than what Miss Eggplant found. Our caterer will charge $800 for a DOC and one site we looked at on the peninsula (south of the city) threw it in for $600 – then offered for free a few days after our tour as an incentive to book them quickly.

Rachel Quigley ([email protected]) did my wedding last month in NYC for $500 and she was FABULOUS. Babysat the flower girl, while coordinating all the vendors, seamlessly herding the guests from the ceremony to the reception, and then even fixed the cake when we had a last minute disaster! I felt like a guest at my own wedding. If you’re in NYC I definitely reccomend her, it was worth every penny!
