    I have a Wedding Party who is awesome. She is doing it for a steal though.

    We’re getting either a DOC or a month of, depending on how much packages run.

    Oh gosh, our budget is bursting at the seams.  No DOC or Wedding Party for me. : T

    We hired a planner.  We are both super busy, and I loved the idea of someone working along side me through the whole thing.  we have saved so much money with her – she knows the ins and outs of the industry so well and gets discounts from a ton of vendors.

    she is also doing our wedding design – she developes a design based on us as a couple and incorporates a ton of amazing little details into the design.  out wedding will look more like “us” than if we planned it our selves!  she rocks!

    I kind of have both, but they come with my venue. The staff includes wedding coordinators who keep pretty detailed notes on everything, and they provide a DOC as well. If I didn’t have either, I would want a DOC, but not a planner – I can do that myself.

    We met with our wedding coordinator today, and I am already so relieved! Figuring out the logistics of getting all our little DIY projects set up would have been such a headache. Now we can just enjoy the wedding day! I feel like, why spend all that money on your wedding but not the little extra to make sure it runs smoothly for your guests and you can enjoy it?

    Our reception venue has a coordinator and the caterer we chose has worked closely with that venue/coordinator for several years, so I am not worried.  I also plan to hire a good dj to keep things on track.

    We are using a DOC. I actually found her from Craigslist for a couple hundred dollars! I’m pretty excited because we originally didn’t have room in our budget for a coordinator at all. And she has been awesosome so far- sooo helpful. 🙂

    We didn’t have a DOC and it is LITERALLY the biggest regret of my wedding.

    The church that we are using for the ceremony and reception comes along with a DOC. That was the only reason I wanted one and for the rehearsal, because I can handle everything else. Plus, I am picky, so I didn’t want anyone in my way.
