When it comes to planning your wedding day there are lots of routes you can take. Choosing to plan a DIY wedding is just one of them, and of course, we think it’s the best route! There are so many reasons why you should have DIY wedding and here, we tell you why…
Release Your Creativity
If you’re a creative couple, then a DIY wedding is where your thoughts and ideas can run wild! If you have a good idea of what kind of vibe you want from the day, then finding inspiration and taking it from there, without limitations, is a freeing place to be when it comes to making it your own. If you love being creative and finding solutions to things, then a DIY wedding is definitely for you!
Choosing a DIY wedding quite often means you can cut back on certain things, save money and work to a tighter budget. You have more freedom to shop around for things and try and get things within your budget.
You Have More Control
A DIY wedding definitely means you will have much more control over things. After all, you and your other half will be overseeing every aspect of the big day from start to finish, from Save The Dates to favours and decorations, you’ll be able to control it! If you’re a control freak this will be your ultimate rodeo.
If you’re ethically minded and plan to have a sustainable, eco wedding, then choosing a DIY wedding can make it easier to have control over the suppliers you use and over the products you choose. You can also choose to recycle and reuse things, so collecting things over the planning process and using them for the wedding is a great way to save money and be more sustainable.
When you choose a DIY wedding day, it means it truly is personalised to you. You can personalise every single aspect of it, from making personalised favours for each of your guests to personalising your decorations. Adding your unique ideas and your personal touches will make your wedding day different from everyone else’s. After all, the day is about the two of you.
Working with Your Loved Ones
DIY means that you can pull on support from your friends and family for things and have some fun whilst doing it. Having a favour making party with your bridesmaids/groomsmen or making table name holders with your family, it will mean you can work with them on aspects of the wedding to create something that’s perfect.
The satisfaction you will get when it comes to the big day will be even greater! Seeing all your hard work and creativity come to life will be the ultimate gift to yourself. Every single aspect of the big day will reflect the two of you as a couple. All you will have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the day you have created for yourself.
