Here is what I am most likely doing.
I have two very good friends who said they will do whatever I ask them to for this wedding. My married friends say I need a "go to" person and an "emergency" person. These two people would split the duties of coordinating our wedding day.
Go To Person
Handle vendor questions and paymnets. This person is your stand-in for authorizing or declining extra charges, changes in plan, etc.
If someone has a schedule question or can't locate this, that or so-and-so, GTP handles this.
Handles missing items and people.
Picks up forgotten items.
Has sewing kit, personal items.
Set-up wedding favors, name cards, guest book/gift tables, etc

my mom is going to be those 2 people. i am going to ask one of my younger cousins to do this, but I want to let her know what is fully expected of her before she answers. she won't have to set-up things, but make sure everything is how i want it since we are on a time constraint and i will be one of the last people at both locations!

My mom is driving for 8 hours in a car/van full of my aunts & uncle. So I don't think she needs any more stress! I want her to be able to have fun and be beautiful.
(My family is great & we love them all, but anytime you put several people in a small space and leave them there...)

my mom is my whole wedding, since I'm so far away, and she would flip out if i trusted someone else to make decisions and things, plus she has met all of the vendors (even ones I haven't) so it's just easier that way. i don't want her dealing with any of the piddly things like the guest book and such so I want a DOC for that. plus my guests can't get into the reception room until 7pm and the DOC can :)

that's good then that she wants to do that. i think getting a DOC would make her life easier.

of us 3, the youngest. but your wedding is after mine. there are a few regulars younger than me, and quite a few people getting married after me :)

yeah, i have 3 older step-sisters and the last one was married in 2003. She went all out for her wedding though! her reception was around 10,000 for 250 people, so it's hard to base anything off of her (1/2 polish wedding, BIL is olish), then the one before that had a tiny wedding not formal and no alcohol at the reception- maybe $5000 for EVERYTHING, including dress...the first one had a pretty normal cost/size wedding but it was very mexican (she's half and my BIL is completely) so they had a lot more of that influence
mine is somewhere in the middle though and it doesn't seem like I'm getting "normal" feedback from anyone. My family tree is crazy looking!
