    That seems like an absurd estimate!  If that’s considered “reasonable” then I need get into the wedding coordinating business.  I think $500-900 is a reasonable.

    I’m currently searching for a DOC and i’ve seen prices range from $1000 to $3000 for the same services.  So while what you were quoted is not unreasonable it’s not the lowest either.  But the price also depends on the DOC’s experience level and how many hours of service she is providing as well as how many assistants she’ll bring with her the day of.

    It does sound like a lot she would be doing for you, which is a huge plus.. But some of the things (pinning on bouts, overseeing final payments) seem like things other people could very easliy do!

    And I might be biased because my wedding budget is $5K, but that amount sounds like too much to me.

    Actually when I was looking around I got prices anywhere from $800-$2500 so yes it’s high, but definitely not the most expensive I have seen. I am going to be paying $825 for two people to be there the day of. I talked her down from $1200 because I wasn’t interested in being able to contact her with questions from when I signed my contract up until the wedding day. I am now limited to contat only 2 months before. Which has been fine for me so far. Ask them if there is any adjustment in the price. How many people will you get only 1 coordinator or will they be bringing an assistant?

    @Shekema07: I know that is all I was looking for too! Mine kept trying to talk me into an additional assistant because we are having such a large wedding, so 3 people there and I said no way. Hopefully if you decide you don’t need the assistant you can talk her down a little more. Good Luck!

    I’m in Dallas and people have quoted me 700 up to 2500 for Day-of coordination with a little extra (rehearsal coverage, post-wedding things, etc.)
