Saying 'I Do' on a Budget

When it comes to your wedding day, you want everything to be perfect. You have probably been dreaming of your big day since you were a little girl. However, when it comes to planning the details, the cost can quickly add up. If you are trying to stick to a budget, there are some things that you should not try to DIY.

In this blog post, we will discuss some of the things that you should not skimp on when planning your wedding, so that you can enjoy your big day without any regrets!

Hiring a Professional Photographer

While it may seem like a great way to save money to ask your uncle Bob who has a nice camera to take pictures of your special day, you will likely regret not hiring a professional wedding photographer. A professional can help capture all the details and emotions that make up your wedding day. They can also give you tips for poses and shots that will make for beautiful photos.


It may be tempting to try and find an inexpensive venue for your wedding but it is important to know what is included in the wedding venue. Some venues require additional charges for linens, tables, chairs etc. Be sure to double check before signing up to any venue so that you don’t get stuck paying for something you weren’t expecting.

Hiring a Caterer

When it comes to the food, you don’t want your guests to go hungry. Trying to cook all of the dishes yourself is too much work and can take away from enjoying your big day. Hire a caterer who will be able to provide a delicious meal for you and your guests that won’t break the bank.

Wedding Planner or Coordinator

Having a wedding planner or coordinator takes a lot of stress off of you and allows you to enjoy your special day worry-free. They are an invaluable resource when it comes to planning weddings and will ensure that everything runs smoothly on the big day.

Wedding Dress

Your wedding dress is one of the most important parts of your day and is something that you will remember forever. Don’t try to skimp on this by purchasing a cheap dress online, as it likely won’t be made with the same quality materials or have the same level of craftsmanship as those from a bridal boutique.


When it comes to the entertainment, you want your guests to have a great time. If you try to save money by having someone provide music who isn’t experienced, it could become awkward and uncomfortable for everyone. Hire a professional DJ who can keep the party going all night long!

By following this list of what not to DIY for your wedding, you can ensure that your special day is perfect without breaking the bank. With careful planning and budgeting, you will be able to enjoy your big day without any regrets and create memories that will last a lifetime!
