DOC?

Hi Ladies,

I have been checking around for DOCs and am a little shocked at how much $$ some of them are! Can anyone give me an estimate of what they paid or are paying for their DOC?

Thank you!

    Hi There!
    I paid 500 for Karolina Warren of Weddings by Karolina. She was FANTASTIC and gets good reviews here. Another friend of mine used her and had the same experience.
    I cannot say enough about Karolina, she did a wonderful job on our wedding.
    See my review on her website: Steph and Stephen 9-11-10 --
    When you click on her "rates" page the pic is my son and I walking down the "aisle" at Mayslake Peabody Estate. The Chapel there, and our cake. The huge. lush bouquet is by KIO Kreations.
    Good Luck!

    Holy cow. I agree their services can be a lifesaver, but I had no idea they were paid that much.

    I'd ask a friend to be my right hand & let her know what my expectations are.

    I am paying $400 for my D.O.C I am using Just Ducky Events. I knew from day one I was going to have a D.O.C. I don't want all the vendors calling me, I don't want to have to deal with them on my wedding day. I could have asked a friend but I want to have someone who knows what they are doing and has experience in this sort of thing.

     I might also be looking for *affordable* DOC so keep the suggestions coming!

    Check out my Yelp review for Honeybee Weddings. We paid $1200 and DEFINITELY more than we "wanted to" or "budgeted" but it was HIGHLY worth it. http://www.yelp.com/biz/honey-bee-weddings-chicago#hrid:jb9CYThCl6r0Hv_9oGVVGg/src:self
