    I voted other because I really think it depends on the size of your wedding and how much you have planned that day.

    If you have a large wedding party and are having a large formal event, I’d think one is a sanity saver. On the other hand, if you’re having a small casual wedding, it might be a waste of money.

    I won’t know if it was a good decision until afterwards.  But I was just starting to stress and worry about whether the reception would correctly be set up when we get there.  A friend is taking a course on event planning and trying to break into the business.  She and a friend will be working together.  So I will have one in charge of the wedding party and ceremony and one overseeing the reception set up.  I’m a little more at ease now.

    No matter what you should have someone. But unless you know someone who has done it before and that you could trust to handle everything, i think you should go with a professional. A day of coordinator is the one thing that everyone keeps telling me i must to have.

    I voted that someone should be designated, but doesn’t necessarily have to be a professional. 🙂 Although I still have a month-ish to go, thus far I’ve been really happy with our decision to hire someone. Our (professional) DOC has been great in many ways, especially with networking with all of our vendors now that contracts and the nitty-gritty details are due.

    That being said, if you have a friend/family member who’s familiar with the business and is willing to direct and lead people, I’ve heard of that working out really well, too! Regardless, I gather that a “point person” is important to have so you don’t take the brunt of the questions about where to go/what to do!
