To DIY or not DIY?

Saundra over at Planning...Forever Events wrote an awesome blog post today about DIY weddings. She really hit the nail right on the head and I wanted to share it with you! While DIY-ing your wedding can be fun and a perfect way to put those personal finishing touches on your wedding, they ultimately cause a lot of stress. Here's a small tidbit of Saundra's wisdom:

What I've found through years of event planning is that there are two kinds of families who decorate their own venue.

Family A: dozens of family members/close friends show up on the wedding day and pull together to decorate the reception.

Family B: only a few of the dozen of family members/close friends who promised to show up actually do to decorate the reception on the wedding day.

So here's the million dollar question: Which family is yours?

We're all about those fun personalized details but would also love to set you up with wedding professionals who can work with you to create customized programs, place cards, menus, favors, and wedding decorations for a reasonable price. Shoot us an email for our recommendations here in the DC area!



  • Aw shucks! I just found that you blogged about this today (God love Technorati).

    Let's just say...there are several REAL weddings that prompted that blog. *smile* Thanks for the shout out.
