I hired a decorator for our wedding….the only reason being..we are having our wedding in my FI’s hometown which is 20 hours away from us.  i researched how much it would cost me to rent everything i wanted and then rent a truck to pick it up and return it and all the time to set up…i don’t have that kind of time, so for us it will be well worth the money, Fiance doesn’t think so, lol, but he paid it so he can’t mind that much! lol

Well, I’m in the process of interviewing some. I found a DOC + decorator who work as a pair. They have quoted me $3K (not including decorations, but will include 2 coordinators + the decorator on the big day). They each want $1500. I think it might be useful because me & my sweetie want to have a lot of activities and multiple themes that need to be coordinated. We also want to do the whole 9 as far as decorations – fabric ceiling, uplighting, tons of flowers (which I’ll buy from Sams club for super cheap!). We’re gonna try to negotiate them down, but we definitely need them to make everything flow and make sure our guests say WOW!

Btw-our budget is max $15K – including their services.
