Day-of wedding planner...Thoughts?


A thought dawned on me over the weekend: is a day-of wedding planner/coordinator a good idea? What do you all think? I'm getting married at the Grand Hyatt downtown, so I need to find out from the woman I'm working with if that is her role, but if it's not, I need to consider a day-of person. I don't want myself, my mom, my future mother-in-law, or my bridesmaids running around on my wedding day.

Any opinions are appreciated!

    We got one for our day. Though we do not have a caterer to set up anything, so I wanted someone to be in charge of that. I think they can be helpful for a number of reasons. Let us know what you do.

    we had one just for peace of mind to ensure that all vendors had a person to check in with & someone to ensure that everything was executed as I'd planned.  Money well spent in my opinion! :)

    I agree with all of the other posts.  Totally worth the money!  I am using Danielle with Something Classic Events.

    I thought I might want one, however, after meeting with my catering contact I decided against hiring one.  My wedding is pretty simple, in one location, not a lot of stuff going on.  My catering "house manager"  is like an included day of coordinator making sure vendors arrive and everything is set.  She basically told me the only thing she doesn't do is bustle me and tend to personal issues.
    My sister and my MOH informed me that they could totally handle tending to personal issues and not to waste my money. 

    Your situation may be different, I think some weddings really need them.
