    Lessons learned in DIY weddings?

    Hi,

    I'm getting married in December this year and my H2B wants it to be DIY. He wants to have the freedom and flexibility of doing what we want in terms of food, no. of people, etc. etc.

    While I think it's a nice idea, it's also very, very challenging given we both have day jobs and we only have four months. :\ Expected guests are around 40.

    Any tips would be appreciated!

    since you don't have much time to attend to most of your wedding needs, it would be best if you hire a wedding planner. share your DIY ideas with your planner if you want to DIY your wedding.

    Hi
    I organized a DIY wedding over 4-5 months, so if you still need tips on vendors etc send me a message. It's definitely doable (and I enjoyed it but it's not for everyone) and I can recommend all my vendors.

    I think that knowing that no wedding planned will ever be perfect, so just enjoy the process of planning and your actual day! Afterall, it's your special day

    DIY is just a fun way to be involved in your wedding. If you are busy, hire someone to help.
