DIY Wedding
Most couples contemplate a “Do it Yourself” Wedding. Very few succeed in doing a full DIY wedding. Most couples succeed in doing a few items DIY to add personal touches to their day.

So, where do you start? When you are planning your wedding, discuss and decide what is important to you both and what services or items you feel require a professional to provide you with the best service and products eg. Invitations, musicians, cake, photography…
There are some services which you should definitely leave to the professionals, these are usually the highest on your priority list of what’s important.

Our Advice…

The biggest tip we could give future brides and grooms is not to leave your DIY until the last minute.

For our own wedding, we did our own invitations and gifts for our guests. After some hours, searching Pinterest, I had a great idea. Sometimes an idea that seems so simple and easy to do can be time consuming. Many, many hours later of tying little bows our guests gifts were finished. I certainly did under estimate the amount of time it took and therefore the best advice would to be plan well in advance any DIY projects for your wedding and certainly allow double the time to complete.

If you have wonderful and crafty family and friends I would also suggest delegating projects to them. Especially delegate DIY projects that can only be completed in the week leading up to the wedding or on the day of the wedding. And also, do your research before starting a DIY project as a DIY budget can easily blow out.
The last few days before your wedding are much better spent relaxing with family and friends than worrying about little bows…

Had another beautiful wedding at The Summit Restaurant and Bar on the weekend...

Our wedding last Saturday was definitely a tearjerker! The beautiful ceremony located in the Brisbane Botanic Gardens was such a perfect setting for their family and friends to witness Warren and Cate’s wedding ceremony. Warren was shedding tears of joy as Cate walked down the aisle, and also during his vows. The couple wrote their own vows, which were wonderfully honest and classical.

The Gardens were then used for classical portraits, and we then headed up to the Summitt Restaurant for their reception, overlooking the magnificent Brisbane skyline.

Congratulations guys!
