Sometimes, I run into brides that are interested in doing it all for themselves. There is nothing wrong with that, I myself DIY'd aspects of my wedding. The idea of DIY'ing your wedding is a personal choice. The only recommendations I have for brides when it comes to DIY'ing your wedding is to think about how they would like their day to go. If you DIY all of your favors, and are done two weeks before the wedding. Congratulations, you are an expert at knowing what 'most' people can comfortably DIY for their wedding. I have seen time after time a bride who becomes obsessed with creating the wedding of her Pinterest dreams. Well, the problem with this type of bride is that she will soon become overwhelmed and by the time her wedding rolls around, she will be exhausted and not able to enjoy the fruits of her labor. For all brides, I recommend doing as much as possible before hand and hiring someone to do the rest. A wedding planner can be an invaluable tool when it comes to accomplishing your goals. Nobody I have ever known has regretted hiring a planner. Now, that is not to say that they didn't regret the planner they chose, but people always see the value in having a point person so that each vendor does not have to come up to them regarding all of the little issues that arise. Couples, when planning your wedding, please hire a planner, they will pay for themselves 1000 times over.
