Have you ever wondered if it’s possible to plan a signature wedding whilst avoiding hiring professionals? If so, you’d be wise to ask this question. It no secret that hiring a wedding planner and getting someone else to do all of the work on your behalf in terms of preparations can cost a pretty penny. However, the investment is often worth it for most people as wedding planners make your entire wedding preparation phase a pleasurable experience. They come equipped with years of knowledge and experience in planning weddings. In addition, they also come with a lot of links and connections, so you may find yourself being able to get a venue at a premium or book the most exclusive caterers in all of Sydney. This is what good planners can do for you. If you’d like to enjoy these luxuries, reach out to us here at Clarence House. We’d love to help you simplify your entire wedding preparation process.
However, there are some couples that may prefer to avoid the added expense of hiring a good planner. They’ll wish to save that money and opt for a DIY wedding (Do It Yourself).
If you’d like to plan your very own DIY wedding, you may find that this may not be as easy as you’ll initially think. Unless you’ve had prior experience with wedding planning, the sheer workload that you’d have to cater for is bound to be overwhelming, if not all-out impossible for one person to do on their own. But here are a few tips
1. Organize Everything Early
Our very first tip for couples who’d prefer to host a DIY wedding is to get organized and prepare everything early and in advance. Life can often get very packed and busy during the most popular wedding seasons. As such, if you’d like to plan your weddings for these times of the year, it would be best to start getting everything in order at least 6 months in advance. If you start planning your wedding date, you may find that most caterers and venues will already be booked. And if you’re planning it DIY, you won’t have the value of the connections and links that a good professional planner has to leverage for a booking at late notice.
2. Make a Checklist
Our next tip is one that is particularly important for DIY wedding planners. This is to make a checklist at the very beginning of the wedding planning process and check it twice. Wedding planning can often get very overwhelming simply due to the sheer magnitude of work that needs to be done and coordinated all at the same time. So keeping a record of all these important tasks is a great way to say organized.
Here at Clarence House, we’d love to help you plan your wedding at a reasonable price. With us, you don’t have to consider going DIY. We’ll provide you with an expert team that will take care of all of your needs and makes your wedding days amazing, all at only the most reasonable cost.
