1.  Big Indian, NY (about 90 miles north of NYC- but my DoC works in NYC as well)

2.  $1000

3.  A site visit 6 weeks in advance of the wedding, running the rehearsal the night before, the DoC with her assistant for the day of (they stayed through dinner), her travel and lodging also included in the cost.  They did the decorating at the church and venue as well.

4.  I used Anh Sobo of Hudson Valley Events.  My only regret was not hiring her to do more.  She was a God-send.  Here’s the review I posted on the Hudson Valley board:

1. Live in NY, wedding in Worcester; my friendor DOC had to cancel late (6 weeks before wedding), so I had to hire last-minute and hired an NYC DOC.

2. $800, plus I covered her hotel.

3. Was supposed to include assistant, but the contract actually listed that as “complimentary” or something – asst. cancelled last minute b/c she was pregnant. (WHAT?) Included services throughout the day, 1 meeting & unlimited phone calls, week-of vendor confirmation.

4. STRONG disrecommendation; hiring someone last minute when things fell through was a bad call. In retrospect, there were some red flags when I interviewed her, but I was desperate and running out of time, and I thought that having a DOC was really important, so I overlooked it. She was horrible to my family and friends, didn’t understand the schedule, and messed up several aspects of my wedding. I am still hearing stories of her being mean, messing things up by not knowing what was going on, etc. I wish I had had the presence of mind to dismiss her after the ceremony, when it was clear that she was a hot mess. She did more harm than good by being there.

In St Louis my DOC is $500 but just raised her prices to $1000 this season.  She is there for the rehearsal and all day for the wedding.  She will do just about anything I need her to, from organizing the vendors, linign up the bridal party, and setting the tables at the reception.
