I’m pretty sure we have run out of choices for a place to have our wedding. They all have guest minimums or will allow us to have our small wedding but will charge us the price of their minimum (for ex: we will probably have around 30 guests but most places minimums are 50-75 so they’d charge us for 50 or 75!). SO I didn’t think I would want to do this but we’re most likely opting to just rent a place out of our liking (outdoor gardens fountains) and take care of the catering, flowers, dj etc. ourselves. Is anyone doing this? How is it going? What is some advice? Thanks bees!

This is what we’re doing, as well. I have to say, if you can afford it, a DOC coordinator will do soooo much to help you–a good one will, that is! We can book the vendors ourselves, but doing things day of would be crazy!
It has helped us score so SO many deals though, which is wonderful!

That’s what we’re doing! We are aiming for 75 guests. Our reception venue comes with a “coordinator” but she is so useless I am not counting on her for anything.

lol oh no Jo Jo! It’s not funny but your wording is. It’s funny, she’s getting paid to do NOTHING and you’re getting paid nothing to do EVERYTHING! *sigh* Well good luck!
We just recieved and email from a winery I’ve been eyeing and the lady is posing some pretttyyy desirable points and prices. Guess we’ll see next weekend when we go up there. I think it would def be easier with a DOC. I don’t need someone doing everything else though. My FH is the one who works so I have a lot of time to take care of anything wedding related and tons of friends and relatives who have just recently married.Don’t get me wrong though, I’m still pretty nervous! haha I’m not wedding pro!
