So Lucky!

I have been contemplating hiring a Day of Coordinator since we got engaged. I want to plan the wedding but the day of the wedding I don't want to worry about a thing, call vendors, or boss anyone around. I want to enjoy the day I have spent a year planning. A Day of Coordinator is an insurance policy that there will be someone to take care of everything so the bride, groom, bridal party and family don't have to worry about a thing but someone will still be making sure that all the plans are executed.

My only problem with a Day of Coordinator is that they cost money, money that is not in my budget. Not all Day of Coordinators are super expensive but when you are on a budget you are constantly thinking about if you could do something more valuable with the money. And lets face it a Day of Coordinator is not necessary. However to me it is very worthwhile because it will help keep me peaceful and stress free considering I am an anal retentive, control freak.

Over the weekend I was showing one of my friends pictures of our centerpieces. When she heard that we were going to DIY them she offered to help arrange them and to lend her help for any other day of projects that might need attention. I told her about my intentions to hire a DOC and she then offered to do the job for me instead of hiring someone else. I must have asked her at least ten times if she was sure and then gladly accepted her offer. I was concerned that she wouldn't be able to enjoy herself and just be a guest but she assures me that she will still have fun and that she wants to do it.

This friend is a planner like me and very attentive to details. If I had to ask any friend to help me out she would have been my number one pick so the fact that she wanted to help and offered thrills me! I am so lucky to have such a fabulous friend who wants to fill such an important role. I really appreciate it Heather more than you will ever know, thanks again!
