Did you have a planner? Month-of? Day-of? What things did they take care of that were vital to your sanity.
- Shana Hooker Day of coordinator handled all of the vendor arrivals, payments, time keeping, people herding, mini disasters etc. examples: someone showed up with a +1 we didn't plan for... And the DJ got hurt during set up. All things she was able to take care of without me even needing to know there was a problem.
- Jamie Morris We have a day of and she's been great lol and we're still a few months out. First she sent a list of all the usual items as a checklist and she is the go to the evening before and day of so I don't have to think. The best part is she was married in my same venue so she knows all the ins and outs!
- Kimberly Fitzpatrick I BEGGED AND BEGGED to hire a day of planner but to no avail they were too far out of our budget, but the hotel had someone there for us the whole time (thank the lord for the Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa staff!)and my sister in law helped like crazy for set up. Overall I'm proof you can do it without a planner as long as you have a few ride or die friends and family and a great venue to lend a helping hand.
