To DIY or not DIY… That is the age-old question 🙇🏼‍♀️ So let’s break it down. DIYing is definitely not for the easily overwhelmed or the time poor that for sure.

Here are a few of the reasons you need to say goodbye to DIY.


From researching and sourcing materials to coordinating logistics. This additional workload can become overwhelming. It’s crucial to evaluate whether you have the time and energy to devote to DIYing while still enjoying the journey of planning your special day.

Stylists have a keen eye for design and can often elevate your vision into something even more beautiful than you could have ever imagined!

Wedding professionals bring years of experience to the table. They have the skills to handle challenges, offer creative solutions, and ensure smooth execution both before and on the wedding day.


Unless you have experience in crafting and decorating, there’s a risk that your DIY decorations may not meet your expectations in terms of quality. Professional stylists have the expertise and experience to ensure a polished look.


Managing logistics on the day like picking up hire items, setting up décor and moving/repurposing items is an incredibly time-consuming task. while enlisting friends and family to help might seem like an easy option, in reality managing this on the day can be overwhelming and potentially affect the success of your event.


Pinterest might make the DIY process seem easy but the reality for most is that DIY projects are anything but. If you’re not already a crafty person you might be better off saving your sanity and leaving it to the professionals.

A major misconception is that DIYing is a cheaper way to go about wedding planning. While some quotes may feel like ‘too much’ the reality is that all of the small purchases add up, IN THE LONG RUN, to be a lot more than you originally thought.  Furthermore, the resale value of DIY items post-wedding is often overestimated, with many couples struggling to sell these items at a significant return. This challenge can make professional styling a more economical and stress-free choice overall.
