    I was planning a wedding out of town.  I didn’t hire a planner and definitely should have.  My cousin acted as my DOC (and GOD BLESS HER).  If you don’t want a friend or family member to do that, it is worth it to hire someone.  I don’t know about the assistants for DOC, but if your wedding is complicated, it might be needed.

    I was looking into a DOC for the same reasons – I’m having a blast doing the planning, but I don’t want to be all type-A on my wedding day, and I’d like my parents and friends to just be able to enjoy.  DOCs in my area (near a major city) were quoting me $1500 or more, so $725 sounds great to me!  Then again I guess it probably depends on how involved they decide to be in getting organized before The Day.

    …but all that’s out the window now; my mom just put the kibosh on DOC.  She *wants* to be involved in the organization, and at least two of our bridesmaids/groomsmen have happily volunteered to direct guests around and help make sure that all goes according to plan.  We have a small-ish guest list, and Mom wants to keep it intimate and family-oriented, so in my case it makes sense to have a few people who want to help.  But for larger guests lists or for people who really just want to be able to relax, enjoy, and trust the organization to someone else, a DOC sounds like a fantastic idea…
