Let's be honest 🙄
Some people say that you absolutely can't plan your own wedding. They'll share horror stories and may even use the hashtag #diyfail as evidence of what will happen if you try to plan your own wedding.
But that's crazy talk. If you want to plan your own wedding, you should be able to and have it be a completely amazing experience. After all, we're talking about throwing a party with your closest family & friends!
Let's be more honest 😊
Even still, planning your own wedding can be downright confusing - especially if you're planning it on a tight budget. You're likely being asked questions every step of the way by well-meaning family, friends and vendors. It can be enough to make anyone's head spin!
So how do you figure it all out without a wedding planner?
Here's what you could do...
- Scourer the internet for tips & tricks and hope whoever shared them knows what they are talking about
- Ask your friends a gazillion questions until all your conversations revolve around wedding planning

"Our wedding day was beyond
Hi, I'm Caitlin!
For the last three years I was a wedding coordinator for DIY weddings, and I'm sharing everything I've learned with YOU!
I know what it's like to feel kind of confused... and at times, overwhelmed... when planning your own wedding. In 2013 before I started coordinating weddings, my now husband and I planned our own summer camp wedding. At the time, I thought planning our own wedding was going to be a totally fun challenge.
However - despite my all my research & effort - wedding planning wasn't turning out the way I'd hoped.
First, I ordered too many invitations - turns out you only need 1 per a household, not per a person. Oops!
Then my husband ordered too much alcohol follwing the advice of an online booze calculator - of course those calculators, which are made by liquor stores, inflate the numbers!
Conversely, I didn't order enough sides for our dinner buffet even though the caterer told me it would be plenty.
Oh, there was that time I had to switch all our guests' hotel reservations to another hotel because the first hotel had a bed bug infestation (which one of our guests kindly notified us about). Ewww...
And there was the time our event staff company went MIA just two weeks before our wedding.
By the time our wedding rolled around, I realized there was a lot of practical wedding planning information that wasn't available online, in books, or by asking friends.
So as someone who always roots for the underdog, I became a wedding coordinator and learned everything I wish I had known about planning a budget-friendly wedding so I could share it with other couples like you.
And this where YOU come in...
I created the step-by-step, comprehensive wedding planning course Feel the Wedding Day Love because I want you to have the best experience planning your wedding and - most importantly - the best day of your life. Every couple - no matter their budget or why they decide to forgo a wedding planner - deserves that.

"Whenever I had a question I could look in the Wedding Planning Resource Library and find just the answer I needed. For example, I took the Wedding Venues chapter to all my venue visits and it helped me know exactly what questions were important to ask. Resources like this are so much more helpful than what you'll find in a wedding magazine!" - Kelsa
"It was refreshing to see all the advice was tailored just for my unique needs. So much out there is for mainstream weddings and geared towards higher budgets and 'onbeat' ways of doing things. In fact, I found 2 of my offbeat vendors for a killer deal with the tips, and saved around $2,000 on each." - Jessica
"There were so many important details I would have completely forgot or overlooked if it wasn't for Caitlin and her knowledge of planning a DIY wedding." - Karah
Feel the Wedding Day Love provides you with thousands of dollars worth of information that would normally be covered when working one-on-one with a wedding planner or wedding coordinator. And you can access it ALL for...
