Planning a wedding can feel pretty overwhelming at times (trust me, we do it for a living). While couples often hire a professional to help manage their wedding plans, there are plenty of reasons why they might also opt to take on the majority of the responsibilities on their own, too. Maybe you’re working with a tight wedding planning budget or maybe you simply love all of the DIY possibilities—in any case, it’s a lot of extra details, but it is possible to plan the wedding of your dreams on your own.

Take a look at our YouTube channel episode 3 on planning your wedding budget, the breakdown of where money should be spent and how to maximize your every dollar.
