July 28, 2020

It felt like the rise of DIY wedding projects on Pinterest was going to be the end of us all. Although that wasn't necessarily the case, the era of DIY is slowing down. Clients are seeking out professionals to help ease the process and make their weddings as special as they dreamed of. That’s where you come in! Couples are looking, so make sure they can find you! Read on for ways to ensure that you're taking advantage of this opportunity and utilizing AP to its full capacity.



The do-it-yourself perspective is shifting. DIY is often viewed as a creative and thrifty way to save some money on your wedding but oftentimes DIYs don’t turn out as polished and beautiful as purchased products and services provided by professionals. Quality is not as good and cost can really add up! All of the items needed to create the coveted DIY often turn out to be just as expensive as our products and services. Due to this, couples are looking to us. They know our quality is essential and worth the cost from their budget.


Cost aside, having to DIY parts or all of your wedding is extremely time intensive. Couples have jobs and other responsibilities to attend to all while planning their wedding. Having to purchase and make several DIYs is stressful. All of that pressure falls on the couple’s shoulders. Planning a wedding is stressful enough. Couples are recognizing that. They understand the extensive benefits of hiring you. You're the answer to improving their mental health and smoothing over all of the rough bumps.
