Loveland DIY Wedding Venue

What do you think Do-It-Yourself (DIY)means in the wedding industry? First, it doesn’t say you have to make every piece of the decorations, It means, you the bride and groom are in control of the who, what, when, where and how. That is what I think of when I hear someone say we are having my wedding at a Loveland DIY Wedding Venue.


Who, that means you the couple is in charge. Not your Mom, best friend or any other relative or some wedding planner. With that being said, you should not leave them out of the planning process and always should show respect to their opinion. I know many of you have spent hours and days dreaming of the big day. That is only the beginning of your DIY wedding.


What kind of wedding have you dreamed? What type of location will you say your sacred vows in front of your family and friends? In making this decision you must take into consideration the feel you want, the numbers of guest, the location of the venue, what does the site include or more importantly what they do not.

There are so many options for you to choose from; rustic venues, barn wedding, church wedding, hotel wedding, etc. when finding the right Loveland DIY Wedding Venue.

When & Where

When and where goes together; the day you decide depends on so many things; first, please don’t set a date without visiting and talking with family and touring venues, and asking all cost involved. Choosing the date and time along with the right wedding site has to be given some thought. Can family attend? Are you considering a location that is too hard and costly for family or your wedding party to attend? Are you thinking of a date during peak season but don’t have the budget? You and your fianc√© along with your families should discuss location and budget. I know this is your big day but do be considerate of other people and the people who are helping you pay for your special day.


I know the above is a lot to think about, time for you to take a big breath and you should remember never to let the DIY take over your life, it will kill the fun. We have seen couples who have called off their wedding due to overload. I know you already have a Pinterest page. Have fun with the search for the perfect colors, perfect dress, and the best food possible. Oh yes, don’t forget the fun during your reception. Enjoy the process with each other and your family.
