What Day of Coordination ISN’T
In our last post, we quickly outlined what day-of coordination is. It’s just as important to understand what it isn’t that a lot of folks misinterpret a DOC contract. It is not a cheap way to secure a “cheap” full-service wedding planner. Together, we set deadlines, assign tasks, and make limits clear so everyone knows what is expected.
When you choose a DOC you agree that you are the primary planner. You also agree to conscientiously adhere to the deadlines we set, providing the information we need to make your day a success with enough time that we can review, reflect on, and if necessary, correct it before the wedding. We can’t anticipate your every need and desire on your wedding day if we haven’t walked through your priorities and plans in advance.
Finally, when you contract with a DOC, you agree to communicate to your service partners, your family, your friends, and even your bossy Aunt Sally that you have chosen a professional you trust to manage the events of the wedding day. Communicating this to everyone in advance is essential, and is one of the keys to wildly successful and magical wedding days.

If you’re still unsure whether DOC fits your needs, the best thing you can do is schedule a complimentary consultation so we can discuss your unique wedding needs.
