Day-of Coordinator? Wedding coordinators offer this, it’s usually a lot less than their full services. We’re using one; she’s going to take care of all detials day/of. If your wedding is very small (?), I’d think maybe hire someone who does personal assistant work or something… there are ads for that around where I live. Not sure how much of a pro you need, how many are attending the wedding, those would be the things I’d consider. You could also just hire college students….

A Day of Coordinator is your best, and honestly, only option if your case. How much they cost varies so much from area to area and vendor to vendor. Here, the cheapest worth while one we found was $300 for the day.

Go to the local college, put up signs; that’s what I’d do. You could check and see if they have any design programs, floral design, etc., or hospitality industry programs, anything remotely related to wedding industry. If so, I’d contact those departments with your request.

I wish I were there to help you out!  Since my wedding, I have been going through “withdrawals” and am strongly considering getting into wedding planning/coordinating on a part-time basis.  I would love the opportunity to “get my feet wet” by helping brides with the coordination of their wedding dreams!  Wink

My Maid/Matron of Honor her niece will be my DOC, maybe if you have a friend or family member who could do that?

I would check a local bridal magazine, in the back they have a lot of listings.

We have a month-of coordinator (she does both day-of and long-term coordinating too). She is a lifesaver since I’m planning long distance and has helped with almost all my vendor recommendations (because I have had to pick my people quickly). DOCs are very affordable in most areas for what they provide (namely peace of mind!). Strongly suggest looking into one. If you have a venue, they may have some recommendations of people they’ve worked with or you can search for DOCs using weddingwire.com or the reviews section on this board.
