Because there are some things you should leave to the professionals
1. DIY invitations – correct grammar is always optional:
2. DIY venue – just get married at the place you first met:
3. DIY cake – if you’ve ever wondered how you’d cross Jabba the Hutt with a Christmas tree:
4. DIY dress – transform your happiest day into the final scene from Carrie:
5. DIY photographer – it’s not like your photo album will be your only souvenir for the rest of your life:
6. DIY music – if you’re into jazz fusion, this’ll be right up your street:
7. DIY stag do – what could possibly go wrong?
8. DIY favours – it’s what’s inside that counts:
9. DIY wedding car – get that expensive wedding look with some shoddy Photoshop skills:
10. DIY dance tutor – you’ve seen Footloose, you know how it’s done:
Getting it right
So what do you do to dodge disaster on your special day? Kelly Hood from Boho Weddings says:
"Leave yourself plenty of time. Start early and never leave things to the last minute, otherwise you'll still be crafting the night before the wedding!
"Also, involve as many friends and family as your can - don't try and do it all yourself. By enlisting a few extra pairs of hands you'll get your DIY jobs done a lot quicker."
