You will never hear me say word one about the concept of wedding planners, because, well, I believe in de-professionalizing weddings. That said, I do understand the idea of Day Of Coordination. Maybe it’s the theatre producer in me, who thinks Stage Managers are the closest thing we have on this earth to God. Or maybe it it’s the event planner in me, who knows just how much hard work an event is on the day of. Either way, I’m firmly in favor of putting someone in charge of your wedding day who is not you, whether that is a friend or loved one, or a tried-and-true pro.
If you are considering hiring such a person, and you live in LA, you should look into Tiffany The Coordinator. She does what any good DOC/stage manager should do (but so many DOCs do not, grrrr):
- She lifts and carries
- She gives you unlimited time (no overtime, no hidden fees)
- Makes sure you eat
- Cleans up after the party
- And, drum roll please, she’s open to alternative weddings
Now all we need to know is if she looks sassy but firm with her clipboard. Go check her out.
