New to PW ( ANY ADVICE)

Hey ladies ! I am new to the website and I also wanted to know in your honest opinion which would be easier on me (bride) continuing to plan the wedding by myself or paying a wedding planner. I am about to graduate with my BA and I won't have the largest amount of money so I want to spend my wedding budget wisely.. Also how do I find good deals for the Honeymoon?

 Hi and welcome to Project Wedding!

If you're short on spare time then hiring a planner is probably the way to go, but if you are trying to keep spending low then doing it yourself is probably better!

Do you have anyone that would be able to help you with DIY projects? They definitely keep costs down.

With the honeymoon have you looked at Groupon deals? I've known of quite a few people that have got good deals - but it depends on whether you're set on a certain place or not.

Please ask as many questions as you need to - there are some amazing ladies on the forum that have great ideas xx

 Canooknic thank you for your response and I guess you could say I still have a lot of time becaue I am wanting my wedding to be in Sept 2015 and I have a good amount of siblings and a big family I am sure they would help lol Yes I am on groupon but those deals are sometime scary to commit to.

 I was pretty much going to say what krosa said...LOL.  I have done most of the planning myself along with the help of my family and friends of course.  However, I did hire a DOC and it was one of the best decisions I have made thus far.

I am also doing a lot of DIY projects but trying not to take too much on since that can get overwhelming and is sometimes easier to just pay someone to do it for you.  I think it's a personal decision and you have plenty of time to plan.  

I too had plenty of time to plan since I had to postpone my wedding for a year.  Start now though because it goes much quicker than you think.  The day will be here before you know it.  Research is key.  Do your homework on your vendors and when you choose a venue ask them for a preferred vendor list.  It helps tremendously.

Good luck and congratulations on your engagement.  Welcome to PW.
