Hi Miss Empire State!

christine viola does a great job and is affordable.

she did miss canary, peony, and brooklyn bride’s doc.  she’s also doing miss martini’s wedding.

it is a big difference from a full time coordinator, but she will start working with you from about a month out. everyone only has wonderful things to say about her.

I 100% second Christine Viola and EAP. She is our DOC and so far she has been my Favorite vendor! Even though we only hired her as a DOC, she has been fabulous in responding to questions I have regarding suggestions for vendors/timeline/logistics etc. She is super sweet, professional, and always quick to respond to my emails. Definitely check her out, she has a few different DOC packages, so hopefully you will find something within your budget.

I loved my DOC – Sarah Lusardi of New York Engagements! http://www.nyengagements.com/index.htm

She was amazingly organized – really on top of every little detail the day of. I  never worried about a thing.  Plus she had two assistants with her.  She personally called every wedding party member, vendor, etc. to make sure they knew when and where to be.  I handed all my stuff over to her the night before (after she expertly ran our rehearsal!) and she got it all exactly right.  Honestly, the whole day ran smoothhly and I never had to worry about a single thing the day of.  I couldn’t recommend her more highly!! I *think* we paid around $1000?  She went beyond what she needed to do in helping us arrange a babysitter, going out and getting me fans for my guests to combat a freak heatwave, etc.  I found a few cheaper (none inspired confidence) and a LOT that were way too much.

A few of my BMs even commented on how much more organized she was than people they had seen at other weddings.  and she is really sweet too!

We’re using Cheryl Larson from Treasured Moments Special Events. She’s wonderful. I just put her in touch with another bee and they are working out a DOC package. I highly recommend her. She’s in Jersey but will travel to NYC.

Try twoteacups.com and ask for Lucia. She is doing my wedding in September and she is very detailed and awesome! I feel like she is maid of honor now because she is helping so much! 🙂 AND affordable!

We got married on the 13th and used Bash – pretty affordable, especially compared to all the other NYC vendors we met with.

Definitely ask for Allie and/or Jayme – both worked with us and were great.

Good luck and congratulations!

Since I didn’t hear back from Miss Empire State on why she didn’t select Sarah Lusardi, I just wanted to comment again on this thread how fabulous I thought Sarah was.  Please contact me if you ever have any questions – we used her for our wedding in June 2008 and hiring her was the best decision I made.  I couldn’t recommend her more highly!
