Pros and Cons of a DIY Wedding

If you’re a bride on a budget, a DIY wedding could very well be a smart route to take. A complete DIY wedding could be authentic by adding a delightful, homemade touch. But it would be advised to take into consideration the time and complexity that will require. Most brides will use select elements of their wedding to DIY, however some elements are better off just being purchased or planned by a wedding planner. When choosing the wrong do-it-yourself project, you could potentially lose money in the long run to repair the damage from trying to plan for a bargain. Here are some pros and cons to consider:

Pro: You will save a ton of money.

Con: Day of wedding could be very stressful trying to put everything together as well as get ready at the same time.

Pro: Everything would be made by you which could make your wedding day even more unique and special to you.

Con: Some DIY projects aren’t as easy as they look and it could take more experience to assemble something together.

Pro: Cutting, gluing, and just crafting in general could distract you from tensions and it could be a great way to bond with friends and family.
