Did you hire a wedding planner ot did you do it all yourself?

I am doing it all myself, only for the fact we dont have that kind of money. Our budget is 1,000 and we are having a small wedding. I have 2 folders and a notebook and of course my tusty day planner

If you can make a nice wedding for $1000.00, I give you a LOT of credit. There are great diy suggestions for centerpieces and even bouquets on youtube. If you need inexpensive invitations, I have a wide selection at great prices. Visit me at www.invitationsbydeborah.com. Have a wonderful day!

It helps to make your own wedding notebook. I just need to get a bigger one now. I have it with tabs. I have a small folder that has finalized wedding orders with receipts and invoices. I also have my trusty maid of honor to help me from going BrideZilla on everyone. we are doing all of the wedding planning ourselves. And I am still going crazy. Does anyone know where in NY we can get a videographer and a photographer in one place and not 2?

wow! Maybe I should not invite all of my co-workers. Of course some cannot make it because of our clients. I work with adults that have Traumatic Brain Injuries.Between the wedding and my job, stress is mounting! But I love what I do. As far as my attendents goes, I have a flower girl, my daughter,ringbearer,my son, my maid of honor. And I have no clue who the best man is!

Check Paper Source - they have several beautiful wedding planner binders, as does Borders and Barnes & Noble (often in the budget section), the Hallmark store too. You can look at those and design your own. As a planner, I get one for my clients and give it to them on their wedding day so they have it. I'd recommend getting a binder from Office Depot or Staples (2-3 inch D ring size) and at least 8 tabs to separate items. Use a scrapbook for other stuff (napkin, invite, etc) that you want to keep at least 1 of. Good luck and have fun!

You can certainly do this yourself, but as I tell the couple's I talk to who want to handle it or just don't have the budget is something that is so important is having someone manage the day. Does not have to be a professional planner, but someone not directly in the wedding party or immediate family who can work with your vendors, help your guests, and keep everything on track and the biggie is handle the problems that come up (and they will). Find someone you trust to do this and you are set.
