Should You DIY or Hire A Designer?Blog
Is it in your budget?
For many wedding couples, the budget is a primary concern. An extra vendor comes with a price tag so only bring on a professional if it fits your budget.
Don’t be afraid to reach out to several designers to see if they can work within your budget. You may be surprised to find cost-effective ways to ensure you get what you want for the price you want.
Do you have experience?
One of the perks of having a professional designer is knowing that your wedding will be designed by someone with lots of experience, as well as access to elaborate software and established relationships with other vendors. In many cases, having the right resources and connections readily available can come with savings in itself.
The decision is ultimately yours! DIY really can be a rewarding project but it’s not for everyone which is why hiring a professional is always an option.
