True, it is possible to save some money when it comes to decorating your own event. However, you must think long and hard before jumping into it with both feet. Remember, this is your big day and you must manage your time wisely. As a planner, I can tell you personally that your safest bet weather you are taking on the task of decorating or not, is to create a very precise time line. This will outline all the things you need to do and the things being done by others. Making a mock time line in advance will also let you know if this is the right move for you.
There will be plenty of family and friends arriving to greet and congratulate you. This makes the day very memorable and emotional. But it does take time. If you have family members who are willing to help, fantastic! Just a note, remember to let them know how thankful you are, because they are there out of love for you, not obligation.
Most banquet halls and hotels only allow you a two hour window of time to decorate for your wedding and reception. However, never assume anything. Be sure to speak directly with your venue as to their rules about décor. When and how it can be done? So, now that you have worked out the details on your time line and you can fit at least two hours in to decorate your wedding and reception. Now you only have to decide what you want and can it be finished in that time period.
Thank you for considering my expert advice. Next to come how to pick the right colors for your wedding.
