The DIY Bride: Do this, Not That
Many of you Pinterest obsessed Brides-to-be may have planned out how to make your upcoming wedding an entirely "Do it Yourself" project. A word of advice, in order to save some money on your wedding day, there are some things that a crafty lady and her friends can successfully DIY, however there are some things that should ALWAYS be left to the professionals. Follow these DIY do's and don'ts and your special day will be unique and crafty without causing any unnecessary mental breakdowns.
Planning & Coordinating:
Don't Do It! Wedding planners have proven time and time again that they are worth their weight in gold, and for that reason you should always consult with an event professional for your special day. You may think, "I'm a creative person. I can come up with my own ideas.", but that isn't all planners do. Though they are highly creative, they are also detail oriented, and can pay attention to every little thing that makes a wedding perfect without batting an eye or breaking a sweat. In the months leading up to your wedding, an event planner can suggest venues and vendors that are the most reliable so that you don't have to wonder if they will come though on your big day. They can tell you what works and what does not work, given their experience, saving you the stress of finding out yourself. On the day of your wedding, the drama behind the scenes (yes there is always drama behind the scenes) will be handled by your planner so that you don't have to lose your pretty voice yelling at the caterers, or ruin your makeup crying over the wrong napkins. Instead, you can be relaxing and having fun with your frinds and family!
Wedding planners offer a variety of packages for different brides. For someone wanting to take more of an active role in the planning of their wedding, there are packages offering only day-of coordinating and timeline planning, leaving you to handle the rest. For the hands-off bride, there are packages that offer planning of the engagement, the honeymoon, and every detail in between. Whatever the level of involvement you desire, a professional wedding planner is an absolute MUST for your special day.
