DIY Weddings: It’s not difficult to create a cash-conscious alternative

Posted by Michael on May 31, 2009

A very interesting article about DIY weddings from the beginning appears in the Monterey County The Herald website. Jackie Burrell wrote it and quotes an early DIY bride who said: “the DIY movement was just in its infancy and pretty much for the micro-budget brides. It was all about saving money, finding the cheapest avenues to pull off a wedding.”

She was further quoted to say: “Martha Stewart’s approach to weddings and her stylish DIY projects were a turning point” and “Suddenly, DIY was chic. And the Internet’s exponentially expanding networks not only spread the word, they provided the expertise to make the movement successful.”

Jackie writes: Now DIY wedding blogs and discussion boards are popping up all over the Internet, and craft stores are responding to the trend. The DIY wedding aisles at Michaels (craft stores), for example, multiplied this year.

  1. Hey Judy, I just came across your blog. I really like the tips you’ve been giving out to your readers.

    Also, I could email you some information about an event we’re having. It’s to help couples plan their own weddings. If you could send me an email I would be able to send you some more information! Thanks so much and any help would be greatly appreciated.
