Day Of Coordinator

We are having my September wedding ceremony at my family's farm and the reception elsewhere. I am looking for a coordinator just for the day to make sure things run smoothly. We've started by asking some friends but I figured I would throw it out there to see if any one knew of wedding planners who do this? Also, do you know the price estimate?

Re: Day Of Coordinator

  • We used Laura from Every Last Detail  http://eldplanning.com/
    She was very inexpensive, I don't remember exactly but I want to say like $300 or something around there.  I am a super organized person, so I wanted someone else that day to do everything & worry about the problems.  Luckily we only had one thing for her to deal with - a surprise guest which I was so hoping would come, but didn't hear from them.  She made sure to make a place card & got the reception hall to add a seat & place setting at the table.
    When I look back I really did not need her, but it calmed my nerves & made my husband happy since I was driving him nuts worrying... GL

    My Ovulation Chart[/url] || [url=http;//www.fertilityfriend.com]Ovulation Calendar[/url]

    Me 42, DH 34 - TTC #1 since June 2012.
    9/12 3-day testing: TSH 3.76, T4 Free 1.1, LH 6.1, FSH 7.4, Prolactin 9.0, Estradiol 56. 12/12 HSG done & my tubes are clear!! 1/22/13 3-day testing: TSH 6.2, FSH 7.7, AMH 0.86, Estradiol 54, Prolactin 10.5. Thyroid almost doubled (hmmm), started Synthroid 2/4/13 and also 15,000 of Vit D 1/wk. 2/26/13 RE says I am in great shape, but DH has MFI - extremly low count along with morphology & motility issues. RE said IUI would be a waste, that IVF with ICSI is what he thinks we should do. Insurance does not cover IVF.... :(
  • I would not ask friends. Friends should get to be guests and enjoy the day. Not be responsible for your wedding day running smoothly. If something goes wrong and they missed it, it could really be something that messes up your friemdship.

    <div>Um, why are you recommending a Florida company on the New Jersey local board?</div><div>
    </div><div>OP - I agree with Chrissy, let your friends enjoy your wedding as guests, there are plenty of affordable DOCs out there.</div>

    They never turn down a customer.....very very professional and they understand that the bride cannot and should not pay thousands of dollars on wedding planning / coordinating.

    good luck
  • I am also using Laura of Every Last Detail....PP was right, she is very affordable compared to other DOCs I spoke with.....not sure if you already took care of this, but it is worth contacting her. Her web site is www.eldplanning.com ...she has been a huge help to me so far in my planning!
