DIY is always cheaper
When you’re working to a tighter budget, it’s temping to think that DIY is the answer to all of your problems, whether it’s doing your own bouquets, making your own stationery suite or creating your own favours. But, price things out and you may discover that by the time you factor in raw materials, timing and expertise, the DIY route may end up costing more than you would spend with a professional. That’s not to say it can’t provide lovely, and cost-effective results, just that it’s worth considering a limit on how many projects you tackle at home.

It’s worth every penny to those couples who want, or can afford, that much cash. But that doesn’t mean you are obliged to spend exactly that amount, nor, frankly, does it mean you can’t spend more if you so wish! Technically – and legally, all you need to get married is a qualified celebrant and some witnesses, as well as you and your spouse-to-be, of course. Anything above that is a nice-to-have, but not legally necessary.
At the end of the day, it’s your big day and you should spend as little or as much as you want.
