  • Wedding: July 2009

Hi Erin-

I am getting married at Lionscrest as well!  I have also heard that the staff and coordinators there are EXCELLENT (from numerous vendors- in fact, that is the first thing they all say when I tell them where I am getting married).  For that reason I am not hiring a DOC.  However, I have a family friend that served as the "go-to" person at my sisters wedding in September and she graciously offered to do the same for me.  She is one of those people that LOVES to be involved in all the little details so she is perfect for the job.  Is there someone you know that you are comfortable asking to serve as the "go-to" gal (I understand if not – I would never want any of my guests to feel obligated with a job… our family friend is one of those people that would rather have something to do instead of just being a guest and that is the ONLY reason I am comfortable with the situation)? 

If not, I would suggest maybe doing a posting on Craigslist.  There has to be someone out there willing to work for nothing/next-to-nothing that is getting started in the business and needs experience and a good recommendation.

 I also can NOT believe how much most DOC cost… and like you, I can’t justify that cost when I already have coordinators at the location that will handle most of the details.

 Good Luck!  Let us know what you find!

I met with Keri Scott in the Boulder area.  She was  great and I think about $1000-$1100 for her services.  Her website is http://www.keriscott.com/.  I really enjoyed meeting with her but a DOC was not in our budget since we are getting married in Breckenridge.  I am also have 2 go to girls who will be like personal attendants during the day.  Hope this helps!

  • Wedding: April 2009

The most affordable DOCs I’ve found were Michelle with Live, Laugh, Love which is based in Littleton, but she was willing to travel to Estes Park for me (phone 303-981-6190) and Estes Park Event Planners (www.estesparkeventplanners.com) which is owned by Laurie Bien.  Her husband, ironically, owns the fly shop in Estes Park, and my Fiance loves that place.  

Both were at or below $500.   

I also got a reasonable quote from JA Special Events (www.jaspecialeventsandwedddings.com) but she was also giving me a discount because my April wedding is pre-peak season.  

The good news is this: with the economy in not-so-great shape, a lot of vendors are willing to negotiate their prices… I guess it’s better to make a little less money than to not make any at all.  Gotta look for that silver lining!

Hi!

 I would suggest Danielle from Something Classic Events. We got her for below $600 and she has helped with SO much more than just being our DOC. She’s based out of CO Springs, but does Denver weddings all the time!
