When planning a DIY wedding there are some important factors to consider to save your wedding from turning into an expensive, disorganized DIY dud. Whether finding the right decor at the right price, getting friends and family to help turn your special-day-vision into a reality, or menu planning; there are few important points to think about when venturing into the DIY route.
With any DIY wedding, the venue is the final canvas. Some hotels, conference centres and other locations will not allow you to put together your own wedding but will force you use their service which can be costly and confining. Make sure to check with the venue to see what is possible to DIY. Local halls, rental luxury homes and farm estates are the best when executing your DIY wedding. Also don't forget: turning a friend or family members back yard into a 5 star venue is always an option.
When choosing that mouthwatering menu for your wedding, keep in mind that it should reflect you and your partners personality and taste. Using a local favourite restaurant or choosing a trendy food truck to supply your meals can really do wonders at making your DIY wedding stand out. For example: A great choice that can keep you in your budget is to have a Pizza and Wings dinner or a potluck. But just ensure that you have enough food to feed your hungry guests.
With decor you can find some staggering deals on Facebook Marketplace with people who have already had their wedding. A benefit of utilizing the second-hand market, is that you can have access to glamorous decor for your wedding and have the benefit of selling it after your big day. If you are going with the vintage feel for your decor, don't forget to check your local thrift shops to find some phenomenal treasures that will make your wedding stand out. Creating your own decor can be tricky but with resources such as YouTube and Pintrest you can make expensive decor options affordable.
