I’m so conflicted on what to do ! So I was reading some wedding planning groups and I seen a few people mention they are getting a day of wedding coordinator and how it will take some weight off their shoulders by not having to worry about things on their wedding day , which sounds really nice !!! But now I’m thinking if I Get one that more money I have to dish out !! I wondering is it worth it , is anyone else here getting one ?

    My officiant and caterer are working together to make the day go smoothly. Everyone has the event timeline and who’s doing what so maybe see if yours would do the same? I was definitely not expecting them to do it though.

    We are getting one. We’re going to factor it in our budget.

    I had one and it was the best decision. She really helped my day go smoothly, set up and cleaned up the day. Highly recommend

    Mine is a good friend, we haven’t discussed a price. I’m sure it will be reasonable.

    That’s really good I have someone who could possibly do it but they are also someone who I’m inviting to the wedding I wouldn’t want them to have to do work at an event I was going to invite them to also , of course I’ll pay the but I’m not sure

    We have ONLY a day of coordinator affiliated with the venue. I can handle booking all the vendors myself and I just keep them in the loop when I book each vendor by sending them the name and contact info. I had a DOC at my 1st wedding and it was a weight off my shoulders. She handled everything and I was free to enjoy the day.

    One of the perks of the venue we chose was that the owner acts as your day of coordinator. She came highly reviewed as being worth the cost of the venue alone.

    I’m debating between what venue to pick one option comes with a day of coordinator( all inclusive with venue) the other one I really really like doesn’t come with DOC or catering , nothing but the tables, linens and silverware so I’m weighing my options

    Read some reviews and see if the DOC is worth it. Some ladies on here have said their venues DOC are only considered about the venue and not the bride/wedding. I joined a local Facebook page and got opinions/looked through old reviews on there to confirm she actually is concerned about you and your day. I do suggest using a Facebook to find a local wedding group to get reviews as a lot of the reviews on here seem to only be positive and you aren't able to leave a negative one.


    But if it were me in your shoes, I'd go all inclusive, way less planning. 😂

    My venue provides one. I would try the thumbtack app to get a better price range.
