D.I.Y. wedding vs a venue wedding

Often a choice to have a “Do It Yourself” (DIY) wedding is made to save money, however this is not always the outcome of DIY weddings, not to mention all the extra stress and hours of organizing the day all by yourself.

Of course if you want to get married on a family property for sentimental reasons, then the costs of a semi DIY wedding is the cost you will need to pay obviously. However if you are trying to save money, make sure you calculate all the various components before committing to this DIY idea. Think it all through very carefully.

For example, you might need a marquee, tables, chairs, crockery, cutlery, glass wear, alcohol, bar staff, serving staff, a catering company, Decorations, maybe fans or heating, a dance floor, toilets, one or two parking directors, music – either a DJ or band. etc. Then if this is on a private family property, there is all the cleaning, gardening, cooking (if you are taking the DIY as far as that) as well….. Oh dear! I am getting exhausted just thinking about it!

Before finally deciding on the exact wedding type you choose, It is probably well worth looking around at some venues, and just getting quotes on how much they would charge to do almost everything.

You only get one day to get married, you really want to be able to relax and thoroughly enjoy that very special day with all your nearest and dearest.

Best of wishes,
