I am in the process of doing just that.  I am currently living in Omaha Ne, but having the wedding in St. Louis (its where I met and started dating my fiance).

When we got engaged in June 2011 we knew we would want to get married in St. Louis.  So we picked a date far enough away that we would have time to plan. 

I am not going to lie it is kind of tough.  One thing I really looked for in vendors were people who were willing and able to work online and by phone.  When I was calling arround I noticed that some people were cool with this and others really prefered face to face meetings. 

As for deciding to hire a planner… That is really a personal choice.  I never thought we would right up until the day we actually did. 

We hired a DOC. That decision came later when I was trying to find someone just to help with set up and tear down (I didn’t me or our families or freinds to have to). Well I ended up meeting with a DOC recomended by my venue and fell in love! She is going to pick up at the 3 month mark and handle everything. She is finalizing all the details with our vendors and going to be there that weekend to keep everything flowing smooth. 

The biggest thing I would keep in mind is that even though you can do a lot by phone and email, you still will have to make a couple of trips to the STL.  What I did was plan these way ahead of time and I packed them full of appointments. They were tiring trips, but I got tons done. 


Hope it all goes well! Have fun planning!
