Looking for help with your DIY wedding?
Many DIY projects are doable if you have good instructions. Beginning with the basics, we will teach you how to do bouquets, cakes, and other projects which are the easiest to master in each category.
Take a look at what is being done by friends and the famous alike — the trend is toward a more homemade appeal and conspicuous consumption is on the decline. Wedding madness may say one thing, while your heart and your budget say something else. Go with your heart. These days, there is also a lot of wedding fatigue. Guests actually rave about the homespun wedding where they didn’t feel that the couple was trying too hard to make a big impression.
So take a look at the alternatives, and if something resonates with you, great. If not, that’s OK too. Everyone is unique. The photo on this page is of a beautiful handmade wedding dress that was created for only $100, including the veil. The bride’s bouquet of roses, miniature tulips, and carnations cost around $30 to make. For an inexpensive location for the wedding or reception, check out your local college campus and sites owned by the Parks Department. They are often very reasonable in price. A little research ahead of time makes all the difference to your bottom line.
Best of luck with your search. We wish you a joyous wedding day and a lasting marriage filled with all the love your heart can hold.
We’re here to show you how to “Do It Yourself”
Instructions are often missing from budget wedding planners. They might say that you can save a lot of money by doing your own flowers or making the cake, but they don’t tell you how to accomplish the tasks at hand.
Other wedding planners will scare you by saying that these tasks are just way too complicated. We think the truth is somewhere in the middle. Yes, an over-the-top Hollywood-style event, or a large formal wedding would be difficult if not impossible for a novice to complete. But is that really what you want?
For many couples, what they want is to have their closest friends and family witness and celebrate their good fortune in finding someone to love and to share their lives with, and they don’t want to go into debt to do it. When you adopt a DIY attitude, then it will follow that you will almost certainly save money as well. If you would like help and ongoing support in this quest, read on.
We will help you with the projects that have the biggest impact on your budget, including the flowers, the catering and cake, and even making a wedding dress. Choose the projects that appeal to you.
