DOC - what are the details?

What exactly are the "details" that a DOC does?  The only thing I can think of is making sure everything is set properly, the vendors are doing what they are supposed to do in a timely fashion, and setting up the name tags.  What else are they supposed to do?

I'm considering a DOC planner cuz everyone always talks about how necessary they are.  But if this is all they do, I can have a family member do this.  I would much rather save the $.

    I think booking a DOC is worth it. I'm sure your family members want to enjoy the day with you too.
