Gorgeous wedding receptions, a garden ceremonies, amazing corporate events! Ask us a question, we will help solve your issue.
So, you wish to save on costs for your wedding by creating your own centerpiece idea and buying your own wedding decorations. ‘I can buy everything at the $2 store far cheaper than what a decorator can hire to me’ I hear you say. ‘If I buy it, then I own it, and I can sell it to someone else on eBay’.
Certainly, you have valid points, but before you go down this path, just read these few little tips and watch this video on DIY'ing your wedding, as they may save you some heartache.
WHO IS GOING TO SETUP FOR YOU? ‘Me!’ you say! All year the function centre has informed you that they have nothing booked in the day before your wedding, and so you think the coast is clear. But, they have booked in a function suddenly the day before your wedding! You scream blue murder at them, ‘who is going to setup the decorations!’? You have so much to DO on your wedding day! Arghh! Mum, bridesmaids, help! Or even more problematic - do you trust the groomsmen to setup all of your details that you have slaved over?!?
WHO IS GOING TO PACK EVERYTHING UP FOR YOU? You are being whisked away in your limo just like Cinderella. Whom is going to be the guinea pig packing everything up at the conclusion of your event? Function centres will often ask wedding stylists to make sure every item is removed at the end of the evening. Whom wants to be running up and down stairs, carrying boxes of used tealights, and bundles of chair covers, getting sweaty in their Louboutins? Isn’t this why you enlist the aid of a wedding decorator?
CENTREPIECE IS NO LONGER IN STOCK! You have purchased all the the required items, mason jars, tealights, all looking fantastic, and then your table numbers increase - you go back to the $2 shop to purchase more, but they have sold out of stock, what will you do then? Will you be faced with having to make the decision about a couple of odd tables at your wedding, or will you replace all that you have already bought with brand new centrepiece? Someone has suggested that an event decorator will buy them off you? However, a wedding stylist will often require the quantities if far larger numbers, and also they want to be guaranteed that they can purchase more of them in case of breakages - that’s one of the reason they buy wholesale.
To conclude, DIY Wedding Centrepieces can be a whole lot of fun creating, but as long as you bear in mind the above info, all should be just fine!
