Day of Coordinator

Hey Ladies!  2 questions: 1) Can anyone recommend of Day of Coordinator? and 2) what is the going rate for this type of service?

As I get closer to the wedding I am starting to think that having a DOC will be very beneficial.  Do you girls think so?  Did anyone have one that wasn't really worth it?  TIA!

    I can rec mine: Amanda at LaDi Events. She is totally worth the money!!! Even though she's just a DOC for our July wedding, she's helped up secure a hotel block and has been accessible via email throughout our entire planning.
    DOCs can cost anywhere from $550 to $1500

    I highly recommend the DOC that we used.  We used Cori at Ashford Events.  I debated for a long time on deciding if we really needed one, and have to say it was one of the best decisions we made for the day.  She was $400/day when we booked her for our wedding in April this year, her but I think her rates have gone up sightly.  I highly recommend her, she was invaluable to our day.

    Kristin Cavarretta at Sweet Pea Wedding Studio. Reasonably priced. I just wrote a review about her on one of my latest posts for my vendor recs recently. I think we paid like $500 or so for DOC and she had an assistant and helped me out a few weeks leading up until the wedding and did an amazing job. She's on FB too under sweetpeaweddingstudio

    My DOC was worth her weight in gold. Absolutely worth it and her pricing is VERY REASONABLE, and she rocks.

    Definitely definitely Shannon Gail (www.shannongail.com). I met with a few planners though so let me know if you want feedback on all of them and why I picked Shannon! You'll love her - totally affordable, young, and saved my sanity! GL!
