DIY Bride

I have recently become a huge fan of at home manicures, or DIY (do it yourself) manicures. For a few reasons actually. One, of course is a tight financial budget, two is a tight time budget (I often paint my nails late at night after my daughter is asleep :), and three is particularity. The phrase ‘particularity’ can conjure up a somewhat pompous notion of me, so allow me to be clear. Yes, if I am paying for a service I would hope to get what I expect out of said service, this by no means indicates that I stomp around like a giant brat demanding things or, ever, become rude or abrasive to someone in the service field; my early twenties were spent in retail management so I can understand the pangs of customer service! Enter DIY.

DIY can be great for a multitude of things, DIY Manicures, DIY Home Improvements and DIY Weddings.

So this is generally how it goes down; and ladies I am talking to you! Prince Charming proposes, you are now engaged, Congratulations! You are suddenly inundated with wedding plans: dress options, venue, date, registry’s, the list goes on and on.

Enter Pinterest

We have all been swept away with Pinterest at one point or another, I am guilty of this as well and I am not entirely bashing Pinterest, I think it can be a great source of inspiration. However, I will say this once, so please take note if need be:

If you are not the DIY type, Your wedding is no place to start

Pinterest Fail - DIY Bride

 Feel free to quote me on that, write it down if you need too, block and copy it, add it to your inspiration board, whatever you have to do, PLEASE DRILL THAT SENTIMENT INTO YOUR HEAD!! Hey, we all have our limitations, I can’t bake to save my life, pull apart Toll House Cookies, yes, Pinterest recipes, not so much! If you are not a DIY Bride, there is nothing wrong with that.. there’s not  If you ARE a DIY Bride, or you choose to completely ignore the above quote, stick around for my next post on avoiding the pitfalls of associated with being a DIY Bride.
