I’m stuck. I have no idea whether I should hire someone to help on our big day (or if I can even find one available and within our budget three months out). They must have some sort of Procrastinators Appreciation Discount right? 🙂
So, Side A : We hire a DOC, and Side B: We don’t. I made a list of pros/cons, and am still undecided.
Side A: We are getting married at a ”˜non-traditional’ venue, so there is no one in-house that would be in charge of me or my event. Which makes me think I need someone to be there to ensure things run smoothly.
Side B: Our event is going to have a pretty relaxed feeling, as we have invited family and close friends. If anything goes wrong I know I could ask any one of them to help out and be able to hopefully laugh about it later. Our guests won’t care that our flowers are/aren’t the perfect color, or if our DJ plays a song we asked him not to. This makes me think we don’t really need to spend more $$ to have someone there.
Side A: I have never planned an event befor. I have a good idea of what needs to happen, but I’m sure there are a ton of things I am forgetting or have no idea that I am supposed to do.
Side B: There will be a ceremony, we will end up married, and there will be alcohol at the fabulous party after”¦ how bad could it really be?
Side A: I want to be able to enjoy the day and not have my family (mom) worry about what needs to get done next.
Side B: If nothing goes wrong, I will probably feel like I wasted $$.
I have been going back on forth on this decision for six months now, and still have no conclusion. So I turn to you:
Are you hiring a DOC? Why/why not?
