5 Reasons to DIY

You’ve seen my top 5 reasons NOT to DIY… here are my 5 reasons on why you should!

  1. You love to craft – If you are an avid crafter, I suggest you do it because it’s a great way to personalize your day and have your wedding reflect who you are as a person.
  2. You want to save money – From making your own invitations to setting up and decorating your venue, you’ll save on labour costs if you DIY. This goes for delivery charges as well… pick it up yourself or have a friend or family member help you out!
  3. You have help – If you can enlist the help of a talented friend or family to make this process easier, do it! We all know that DIY projects can take time and definitely a lot of effort… if you have helping hands that are ready and willing, you’ll be a happier bride-to-be.
  4. Your projects aren’t too difficult or take too much time - Undertaking projects that are too advanced may cause you grief, stress, and even more money so choosing the right project will help keep you from throwing everything in the trash in a fit of rage.
  5. You want the satisfaction of completing a project – I’ve done a few things myself for my wedding and there’s nothing like the feeling of pride in yourself after a job well done.

Just think how impressed your guests will be when they realize it’s your creation that they’re gawking over. It’s definitely another way to make your wedding stand out.

Tell me… what are your reasons for doing it yourself?
