    @MissTaken:  If you’re really straight forward on how you want your stuff set up, go with 1.  Afterall, theres only so many ways someone can place linens and centerpieces. 

    If you’re getting the decor from them… maybe go with 2 if you like her style better. 

    It may just be that 2 has worked with brides that bought better decor themselves.  Know what I mean?

    @MissTaken:  Well in the grand budget of things, an extra 2 or 3 hundred for the DOC you feel more comfortable with isn’t much.  I’d just get the one you like better.  The money is pretty insignificant, especially if you can afford a DOC in the first place. 

    Most of the ones I looked at were around 2grand.

    I would generally say #2 for sure. HOWEVER mine is so rude, and she doesnt respond to e-mails/phone calls quickly… she acts as if she is better than us. sorry we are only spedning about 20k not 100k geez whiz! 

    At this point I would rather work with someome sweet and caring! not someone who thinks she is better than me!

    I sware I saw as long as you have something in mind of what you want, #1 will be able to get it done and 10 hours… so much better than 8!!!!

    @MissTaken:  I’m doing the picture route too. It should work out.

    I’d go with the second, and would have to sacrifice the “sweetness” and extra few hundred dollars.

    I’d go with the first. I’d rather be around someone pleasant than abrupt… especially on my wedding day. I wouldn’t like to be around someone who intimidated me and acted like they were too good for me.

    You can always come up with your own decor ideas (use the bee!) and just give #1 very specific instructions.

    I like 1 better. She seems like shes more likely to make your day a positive experience. 2 sounds like shes going to bring you down and not be willing to go the extra mile to make sure things are right. She also just doesn’t seem invested in your wedding and your vision the way the 1 is. Personally I would provide a few visual aids to 1 and have someone around for 10 hours who is going to be excited with me. And just because shes sweet with you doesnt mean she doesnt know how to code switch to become the boss when she needs to.
