    Successful DIY wedding

    By carmel | January 31, 2016

    I got so busy since late last year for the wedding preparation of C and J who tied the knot two weeks ago. So thankful that the wedding was a success, though most of the accessories are DIY and handmade to meet the limited budget. I got teary-eyed watching the beautiful bride at the chapel door as she started her march. The many sleepless nights of DIY tasks for the invitations, missalette and cupcake baking were finally over, and so happy to have helped our dear friends in return for the big help they gave for dad and mom’s golden wedding anniversary last 2014. Our gratefulness translated itself to time and effort indeed, not just saying our thanks to J who did a superb and elegant setup and decoration for the chapel and reception during our family affair.

    For those with an important event coming up, a good events planner is a must, but if you are on budget, you can always enlist your family and close friends for help. The venue should also be booked earlier, ideally at 3 months before the event, to reserve your slot. It is also important to discuss with their manager or staff about your setup for the room, as well as your motif for the tables and chairs. While they usually have linens ready for use, you can have many options especially with made to order items to elegantly drape over the tables and chairs such as custom fitted linen – premiertablelinens.com offering different fabrics to choose from. Having many options for tablecloths is good for your creativity, it makes you able to do more with different textures and styles.

    For the golden wedding of our parents, we reserved it months before as we know most hotels will be busy on our preferred date. Planning ahead was a challenge as all my siblings were abroad; we relied on online chats and emails as we were discussing the essentials. My friend J helped a lot with brainstorming on the decors, theme and the gold motif. I wanted it to be simple, not so extravagant, not so over the top, for the whole setup, and she delivered well. We even had a guest book tree with paper leaves for the guests to sign their messages.
