Wedding Tips | Your DIY Wedding May Not Be Ideal

For brides on a budget, a DIY wedding seems like the only option. While staying up late for months on end to save a few bucks may in hindsight seem like a great idea 😉 no one can deny that time equals money. Your time as working, creative, boss babe, mother, sister, friend is valuable! Whatever your current title in life may be, we can all agree that how we spend our time will determine our mental health and well being.

Weddings can be stressful. It is the most important day of your life and at times, putting all the pieces together may be overwhelming. While each bride wants her wedding day to be picture perfect, DIY to save money may not be the best route to go.

To give us some more insight into explaining why the DIY wedding trend is slowly fading, I’ve asked the ladies over at Social Design and Events to explain.

“DIY decor is less expensive than hiring a designer or buying / renting, right? Money isn’t the only valuable resource you invest in your wedding. When planning your wedding, choose what you spend time towards wisely! If you’re an avid crafter who loves the idea of investing hours into creating the perfect favors for your 200 guests, do it! If crafts really aren’t your thing or you don’t know where you’re going to find the time, hire an expert and get your life back. You’re welcome.”

Hiring a wedding planner instead of trying to do your DIY wedding yourself will allow you to enjoy your engagement period! Finding your perfect venue, picking out your dress, finding your wedding colors are all part of the wedding planning experience that is fun! Leave the tedious tasks to the professionals who actually enjoy doing it.

Highly recommend Roots Floral Design - absolutely beautiful!

“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”

-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond.  Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."

-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"
