DOCed + Blogged


I'm blogging about being blogged!

It's always exciting when a fellow blogger writes about you. Miss Stiletto on Wedding Bee aka Soon to be Koo wrote a lovely post about her reasons for hiring a Day of Coordinator aka a DOC. Check out the post. It was amazing to see all of the positive comments. It looks like there are several Honey Bee Brides that are also Wedding Bee readers!!

Recently, I had a Bride that opted not to use our services. She said that her caterer will handle everything that day. I'm sorry but I have never met a Catering Manager that does my job! Catering Managers aren't going to make sure that your hair stylist and/or make-up artist arrive on time. Nor are they going to help if there your limo driver never shows up. Or worse, if there is a problem with your gown. While they may set out your favors, they aren't going to make sure that the DJ is playing your Must Play list.

Let me end this post with a photo. A picture is worth a thousand words, right?

Below is a photo of me organizing a 36 person bridal party at the rehearsal. I have my spreadsheets in hand and am calling out to the bridal party to get them organized. But don't look at me. Look at the beautiful bride-to-be, smiling and enjoying herself. That is what you get when you have a DOC.

Love it! So many people flip flop on hiring a DOC but I'm so glad that I'm going to have someone in my corner to make sure the details are all in place :)

Oh my goodness, if I think of all the oddball stuff I have done as a DOC... crawling on the ground to pin down a runner and trim the excess during a ceremony while trying not to get caught in the videographer's line of sight...playing MacGyver...soothing family members...blocking a puddle filled broken glass on the dance floor til the staff can clean it up... whew!
