Many people dream about the day they will get married. They dream about the venue, the decor, the flowers, who they'll invite, the colour scheme and the delicious food they will have served. In all this dreaming and planning it is rare to find someone who has envisioned the vendor shopping, tastings, budgeting or even the struggle of deciding which vendor you want more when your dates don't align. Even more rare is the person who thought about who would arrange, receive, deliver and manage the details while they were enjoying their perfect wedding day. Most of the brides I have met have found themselves cast into the deep end of wedding planning searching for anything to keep them afloat as the try to get control of the situation.
Don't have the time to deal with the logistics of planning your wedding?
These days, the cost of a wedding can take years to save for and many couples are putting off their day of happiness so they can save as much as they possibly can. One of the most common ways to save money for a wedding is the DIY Wedding. Along with all the planning and logistics the bride is also creating as much as possible from scratch. I've been there myself, not only for my wedding but for my five sisters and two brothers as well. I cannot tell you how many invitations I've embossed, printed, cut out and detailed with metallic markers or custom stamps, the number of little tulle satchels I've tied shut with ribbon, the number of vases washed, dried and filled with center piece items. I could go on and on but you can be assured that if anyone knows the number of hours spent on a DIY wedding, it's me.
Save Money With DIY Decor & Specialty Items
Right about now you're thinking to yourself, "but I want to make my centerpieces, I love doing crafts and I've always wanted to make the perfect hand made gift for my guests to take home and use to remember my beautiful wedding." There are so many couples who want to be involved in, if not take charge of the overall style, decor and theme of a wedding but don't want to be bothered with the day of coordination or selecting vendors such as commissioners, DJ's, transportation providers, tent rentals and set up crews. There is a way to keep all the exciting creative side of planning to yourself while you hand off all the detailed logistics to me. I've even made it easier than you could imagine by creating DIY Packages featuring Water Valley Church Event Centre.
The exclusive DIY Packages that we created just for the absolutely charming Water Valley Church Event Centre allows for the bride and groom to have their DIY decor, hand made items and control of the theme and design. The remaining details, vendor selection and day of coordination has been bundled together into a priced wedding package. Not only will you have your DIY Wedding but you will know exactly what all the extra work and coordination will cost. There will be no surprise fees or last minute costs to consider when you select one of our Apple Pie DIY Wedding Packages.
The Water Valley Church Event Centre is the perfect location for any country DIY Wedding theme. The beautiful church was originally built in 1936 and has been lovingly restored by Kristine and Rick who with their skills and experience in restoring historical buildings have embodied the entire essence of what a DIY Wedding means. The beautiful wood and windows on the inside have created a bright and delightful atmosphere that is only enhanced by the church grounds. The spacious side yard is ready to be used for the perfect cocktail hour or reception. With an outdoor building to be used for bar service and ten perfectly rustic spool tables you can't go wrong with the decor already available at the venues location.
