    I think the only benefit to having her there is if you feel like you will act personally frustrated but would prefer the buffer of having the cool professional to do your talking for you.

    Since this is her second paid wedding and you are type A you are probably as skilled as she is at handling this conversation, so it will come down to if you can emotionally handle it.

    I for one have anxiety and can be a people pleaser AND am type A, so there is a chance that if I’m already frustrated with something that I will either forget to deal with something I meant to because of my anxiety or I will shut my mouth because I don’t want to make someone angry because I’m a people pleaser… that sort of thing. In that case I’d want the professional there, to take the pressure off me.

    @Americano:  I agree with this.  It’s best for the DOC to know early what’s going on and to have as backup (and to call BS if warranted).

    @NAvery:  

    “‘Throw money at it to make it stop stressing me out’ fund…”

    BEST EVER. 

    My Fiance said that his only wish (besides a puppy stampede) for our wedding is that I’m happy and not stressed out. Which is actually hard to accomplish since I’m type A 🙂 

    We have that same fund for this purpose. Thankfully both of us and my parents, who are gifting us with the reception, are on board with that line item in our budget.
