The need to help brides plan their weddings

The inspiration for Do It Yourself Wedding Guide was the team’s love for serving others. During our period of downtime in 2020, we reflected on how we can offer more to our audience. When we surveyed our audience, the results showed that most brides are planning their weddings themselves and their challenges surround accessing the necessary guidance. 

We realized that there is an increase in couples choosing the DIY option and there are limited services offered to them. We chose to write this book as we wanted to offer our DIY couples more options, so we upgraded our templates and added guidelines and tips so that our “Do It Yourself Wedding Guide” is compact and reader-friendly.

Customers show appreciation

Since our launch on August 8th, 2020, the response has been great so far, as couples appreciated this guide and expressed it as being exactly what they needed as it helped them to plan their wedding successfully. Here’s what our customers had to say:

‘Insights into issues that couples often overlook’

“This concise, 31-page book… takes the reader from getting engaged, to developing the guest list, building the budget, choosing the right vendor, determining the timelines and shows the order of a typical reception. The language is conversational and easy-to-understand, with clear explanations of any wedding-related terms used.

Natalie Orr’s background in finance shines in the section, ‘Wedding Budget Saving Tips’, with an accompanying, thorough wedding budget checklist, included in the appendix. Another section we thought would be useful for DIY couples, is the ‘Wedding Essentials’ page – where Natalie gives insights into issues that couples often overlook during wedding planning. The ‘Wedding Checklist by month’, also gives a good general guide of what couples should be looking at each month, in the lead-up to the wedding.

Overall, based on our review, this book is most suited for brides and grooms who have had no event planning experience, who want to plan their weddings on their own but need a ‘roadmap at a glance’ of how to proceed.”

Everything I needed to plan a wedding

Upon receiving my copy… I was quite taken aback. Natalie Orr was so friendly and wore a gigantic smile, which made me, a stranger, feel so comfortable being around her. After reading her bio in the guide, I got a chance to learn more about her and understand her passion for her skills and people. It was so much, that she basically handed over to me everything I needed to plan a wedding right in the palm of my hands.

This gem of a book took me on a journey from choosing a date and time to an actual wedding day timeline. She even gave expert advice on one of the most dreaded task… creating a guest list, and her methods all surround one key factor, ensuring your day is special and memorable. Her financial background is emphasized throughout the guide from preparing a budget to choosing the right vendor to suit your needs (an actual budget planner is included).

Planning your wedding can start as early as 12 months prior to your date. Thankfully, Ms Natalie has all that covered in her guide, so there’s no need to worry about when to book a florist or cake decorator, this complete guide will ease you through the process.

I love my “do it yourself wedding guide” and you will too!
