Part 2 – The Bad
While you can easily do somethings for your wedding by yourself, other items may need to be left to the professional. Maybe you think that you can create your own centerpieces. This is ok, if you can do it. If you are not very creative and just throw something on the table, it will show. People will notice if the fake flowers are just stuck in a vase. I am not saying that you cannot do your own centerpieces, I am saying that you need to know your limits. If you are a very creative person that can look at a picture and recreate something, than great do your own centerpieces. My sister happens to not be creative (she is the first to tell you), and would have made horrible centerpieces if she did them by herself. She knew for her wedding that she could not create them, so she had me do them. Some centerpiece ideas are easy to recreate because you can purchase items already completed and just set on tables. Other centerpieces take time, effort and skill to create. If you see a picture from a celebrities wedding that you just have to have, be aware that they did not do it themself and hired someone. If you try to duplicate it yourself, be prepared that it will not look the same. If you are ok with that, great. If not, then hire a florist or wedding planner. This does not end with just centerpieces, but you get the idea. Know what you can and cannot do, and it will go a long way in preventing unneeded stress.
