Day of Coordination Services or DOC for short are typically for the couple who wants to plan all aspects of their wedding but need some assistance towards the end of the wedding planning process. Even though its called Day of Coordination typically work begins at least one month out. Wedding vendors are contacted, a detailed wedding timeline is created and all final details regarding the wedding ceremony and reception setup are worked out.
I think that Day of Coordination Services are a necessity for a wedding. When I began planning my own wedding I adopted the following rule: that family members would not be allowed to work at my wedding….they would be guests only. I held true to this rule and enlisted the help of Christine from Ribbon & Tie. Yes, I did help with the setup for my reception but at some point I needed to get my hair and makeup done and had to relinquish control. All went excellently and I did not have to worry about a thing.
