Why Hire a DOC?

by Laura Savio, ELD Founder

For the hands-on, DIY bride, the term wedding planner can be a huge turn off. You want to plan your own wedding, make your own decisions and be involved every step of the way.  But like every bride, you want to enjoy your day with as little stress and hassle as possible.  The solution? A “Day of Coordinator.”

You put so much time, energy and not to mention money into your wedding. All the little details you have been dreaming of will add up to make for one amazing day. However, between photo ops and cake cutting, dancing and saying I Do, you won’t be able to ensure everything is exactly how you dreamed it would be. So why leave those details up to chance? Having a Day of Coordinator (DOC) on hand ensures you that everything will be carried out exactly as you planned. From the rehearsal dinner to the last dance, the DOC will be your second set of eyes — and in some cases, your only set, when you are needed somewhere else on your big day.

Your ELD Coordinator will be there to:

  • Direct the rehearsal.
  • Confirm times and locations with all vendors the week before the wedding.
  • Keep a list of all vendor contacts and phone numbers in case of emergency.
  • Create a detailed timeline of events for the day.
  • Help pin on boutonnieres and corsages before the ceremony.
  • Let the DJ/band know the order to announce the bridal party and how to pronounce all names correctly.
  • Keep a copy of the seating chart and assist people who can’t find their tables.
  • Keep a copy of the photo list to make sure that the photographer doesn’t miss any must-have pictures.
  • Make sure all necessary people are readily available when needed for pictures.
  • Have on hand a wedding day emergency kit.
  • Ensure your center pieces, seating cards, favors, etc. are set up and displayed exactly how you envisioned them to be.
  • And (dare I say, most importantly) tend to every need you have on your special day. Your ELD Coordinator will be there to make sure you enjoy every aspect of this once-in-a-lifetime occasion to the max!

And so much more. Remember, while many wedding venues offer wedding coordinators, hiring your own is much more beneficial. Your ELD Coordinator will work not only with the hall, but with all your vendors, bridal party and guests. She will be your one and only “go-to-girl” from the minute you wake up til the last dance is danced! So relax and enjoy the fruits of your labor! Soak up every minute of your wedding day, knowing that your Coordinator has you covered, right down to Every Last Detail!
