When it comes time to start planning your wedding decor, you will have a few choices to make. One of those choices is should you do a lot of DIY decor or simply purchase it all. Here are some things you’ll want to consider when trying to make the decision.
Do you have time to do a lot of DIY projects in order to make your wedding look fantastic? If not, you may want to consider purchasing the items. Or, you can compromise and take on a few DIY projects so that the decor has your touch but you still have plenty of time to make sure everything comes together nicely.
Money is something you have to consider with every aspect of your wedding. If you don’t have a huge budget, you may be able to save some money by doing some DIY projects. However, you’ll really want to price the finished projects as well as the materials to create the projects, because sometimes you won’t save money by doing it yourself.
In some cases, you can use items that you have purchased for your home as decorations for the wedding. For example, you might want to have a decorative rug under your feet while you recite your vows. Buying a rug exclusively for the ceremony is somewhat cost prohibitive. If you can find a rug that not only matches the theme of your wedding, but would also look great in your home, however, the price becomes easier to stomach. Have a look at some handmade tribal rugs, as they can add culture to your wedding and, later, to your home.
There are some things that we simply can’t do, no matter how much we may want to. If you simply can’t do your own calligraphy or you just can’t arrange your own flowers, don’t beat yourself up. The professionals have trained and do these types of things every single day…you don’t! Don’t be afraid to hire a professional if you just can’t manage it yourself.
By considering these points, you will be able to determine whether to do your wedding decor yourself or hire a professional.
