Many couples want to plan their own weddings and hire a wedding planner/coordinator to implement the plan on the day of the wedding. Although it is called "Day Of Coordination" (or DOC for short), your wedding coordinator will become involved at least one month before your wedding.
According to BrideWorld.com, "Hiring a professional wedding coordinator just for the wedding day, to organize and manage details, can save a bride's sanity."
If you have planned out the majority of your wedding, a "day of" coordinator will serve as your total relief on your wedding day by tying up loose ends and finalizing dates and times with all vendors involved.
There are a lot of details to worry about on your wedding day, so why not let a coordinator worry about the details instead of you?
During the month leading up to your big day the coordinator will make sure that all contracts have been signed with all vendors, ensure that everything from the flower girl's dress to your dress will be ready, confirm the final itinerary with you and all of your vendors and, most important of all, take the stress off of you.
The "day of" ceremony services include making sure the flowers, decorators, cake, photographer, limousine and entertainment all arrive when they are supposed to, provide coordination for the ceremony so that it runs smoothly, acting as crowd control in between the ceremony and reception, and making sure that everything is taken care of so that you do not have to.
As you can see, the major benefit of having a "day of" coordinator is total relaxation. Wedding coordinators take pride in taking the weight off of your shoulders on your wedding day. That is what we live and breathe to do.
Consider having a "day of" coordinator for your wedding day. Because, after all, don't you deserve to have maximum relaxation on your special day?
