What is a Day-Of Coordinator?

Ok, so we’ve identified that you need a Day of Coordinator (DOC). Now let’s talk a little bit more about what these folks actually do (also listen to this interview with a real DOC).

Let me start by saying that the name “Day of” is really misleading.

A good Day of Planner will work with you for at least the month leading up to your wedding and sometimes even months in advance. Here are just a few of the important tasks they take on:

  • Make suggestions and refer you to vendors they know, like, and trust
  • Suggest wedding venues and give you guidance and feedback on your wedding weekend timeline
  • Run your rehearsal (if you don’t have a professional officiant to do it)
  • Liaison with all of your vendors and be the point of contact for everyone on wedding day
  • Ensure your wedding timeline runs smoothly and as on-time as possible

Your DOC is the person who makes sure every little detail you’ve thought of and planned for happens the way it’s supposed to. A DOC will even make sure the caterers, or people you’ve identified to set up your tables, know how to recreate your vision. The DOC will be the one to alert everyone that the wedding is about to start. They’ll cue the attendants to walk down the aisle. They’ll even make sure your dress is arranged and your lipstick is fresh (if you’re a wearing a dress and lipstick, otherwise this would be really awkward)!

Basically, your day-of wedding coordinator is there to ensure the wedding day unfolds seamlessly while you relax and enjoy every moment of the day!
