I'm sorry if this should be in another board... I looked and just wasn't sure!
Anyways, I decided to go with a DOC because the coordinator at my venue said that she will try her best to be around for the ceremony, but may not be if she gets too busy. I do not want to assign the responsibility of telling each BM or GM when to start walking down the aisle to anyone in my wedding so DOC it is!
My question is really about how long I will need this lady for. She offers a full 8 hour service for $550 OR I could get her hourly for $75. The only thing I feel like I would really need her for is right before the ceremony, during the ceremony, and immediately after. I was thinking of having her for 3 hours on the day as well as for the 1 hour rehearsal.
Do any of you think it would be wiser to just have her for the full 8 hours? Or will I be good for the 3?
My wedding budget is already tight, so even though it isn't a HUGE difference in price I'm trying to save wherever I can.
Thank you for your help!
