I am looking for suggestions for an energetic coordinator who is presentable to coordinate my Sunday evening wedding in Long Beach, CA.
I specify presentable because a friend of ours recently had a wedding and I am not sure if the person was her planner or a day of coordinator, but she dressed completely inappropriately in a clubbing style dress and sky high heels. I am quite certain male guests misunderstood and thought someone invited the stripper from the Bachelor party.

We’re getting married in LB too (The Reef)! Anyway, I JUST commented on another DOC post, so please forgive me for just copy+pasting (to save time!):
Sara from Planning Forever Memories! I seriously called like 20 planners when looking for a DOC and was impressed with her as soon as we first talked. Even though we only booked her for day of services, she has already gone above and beyond in making the planning process easier for me, and due to issues with our church has agreed to assist on TWO seperate rehearsals, basically making the problem disappear. She is very organized and has given me so many tips/advice since we booked her.
I know I sound like an informercial, but I just cant recommend her enough! Give her a call and tell her Leia sent you. (She had a great DOC special running when I booked her, so ask about those too) PM me if you want any more info.
Oh and to address your “presentability” issue, she hasnt done our wedding yet, but she did arrive to our consult meeting before us and was dressed very appropriately, in business casual clothing 🙂

Oh and check the locals board (and maybe move this post there). You will find lots of posts about DOC suggestions in our area.

We are using Julie Schreivner from her own business http://www.thebestweddingsforyou.com and her husband is our DJ. They came as a package deal :). We LOVE them so far! Our wedding is in Long Beach as well in Sept this year and she is based in SD but the price for both her and her husband as DJ as a packaged deal is AWESOME! Her husbands website is http://www.elitebritishdj.com. Good luck in your search!
