So, you are thinking about having a DIY wedding? I had a very DIY wedding, and I can tell you from experience that is is a lot of hard work. Deciding to have a DIY wedding is not a decision that you should take lightly. The more items you DIY, the more time you will spend on your wedding, and the more physical space it will take up in your life too! My husband and I had boxes upon boxes of decorations, cake stands, food, beverages, etc. in our house leading up to the wedding. We filled up his pickup truck and the back of a large SUV to get everything to the venue!
But DIY weddings can be very rewarding too! For us, we were able to have the super personalized wedding we wanted at a price within our budget. So here are some things to consider when choosing to go the DIY route for your wedding.
