I'm REALLY hoping that we can squeeze in a coordinator at least for the day of.  Our venue probably will come with an event manager, but they are going to do the timing and things for the ceremony.  That is a headace that I hope I'm not having to worry about on my big day.  I even work with a wedding coordinator part time!  I know what kind of stress it is.

I'm weird about this wedding. I kind of want to be able to "control" what it looks like (though absolutely not in a bridezilla manner. I get as much input from FH as he wants to put in, because I want the wedding to reflect us). Personally, I just feel like a planner wouldn't get that. Plus everything's pretty low key so I don't think we'll really need one.

Yes @thrila, I am exactly the same! I know exactly how me and FI want things, and I feel as though no one can fully execute my vision except for me! So I will probably not have a planner, but it's not out of the question yet. Still trying to decide what kind of wedding/how big it will be. If the wedding becomes huge, I will have to get a DOC.

My nana's a wedding planner, so she's helping me, but I am so much of a control freak that there's no way I could hire anyone else.

That was the first thing I cut from my budget. I may eat my words later, but I think I can handle this with a little help from my fiancee and friends.

A dear friend of ours is kind of half-planning for us. She is doing it for free, but she does have a "day job" that comes first. She is awesome :)
