We also paused our business Facebook page because our AMAZING social media intern Jorie is graduating college and moving on. She did incredible work this year managing the Facebook business page, re-designing our logo, defining our color scheme, and helping us figure out just who we are for our clients and in the greater wedding community. (If you're reading this Jorie, we miss you!!)
And we're happy to say after reflecting on all that we do and taking time to listen to what each of our clients has told us over the last year in emails, reviews, and in conversation, Brittany and I could not be more excited to continue serving DIY couples in 2016 in new, creative ways! Here's what we are doing to help couples get ready for their weddings in 2016 and beyond:
DIY Wedding Planning LOVEST
We created this new FREE Facebook group to help couples who are planning their own weddings. It's a group where couples can exchange ideas, ask questions, and know they will get answers from others who share a DIY approach to planning their weddings. It's an exciting group to be a part of, and it's growing quickly! If you're a DIY couple planning your own wedding, we'd love to have you join DIY Wedding Planning LOVEFEST.
DIY Wedding Mentor YouTube Channel
Are you interested in learning the basics about how to keep your wedding simple, affordable and authentically you? If so, then the DIY Wedding Mentor YouTube Channel is a great place to learn what the most important things are to keep in mind while planning your wedding.
DIY Wedding Planning Workshops + Webinars
We are holding regular online DIY Wedding Planning Webinars via Google Hangouts. These have been great, and have allowed us to help other couples planning their own weddings in much the same way we help our DIY Wedding Coordination clients. We also have some exciting in-person workshops in the works with some really great vendors, so stay tuned for more about those!
DIY Wedding Planner's Guide
The DIY Wedding Planner's Guide keeps growing and getting more awesome all the time. In addition to the e-book, workbook, spreadsheets and private Facebook group that have always been a part of the guide, now couples who subscribe get a FREE wedding consultation with me, FREE access to all of our DIY Wedding Planning Webinars, and opportunities to ask other wedding professionals (such as photographers, florists, DJs, etc.) their most pressing wedding planning questions. Additionally, we are now offering a FREE 1-week trial subscription (no credit card required).
We're also continuing to build partnerships with DIY wedding venues and vendors to create custom DIY Wedding Planner's Guides for them and connecting with more DIY couples that way, and look forward announcing some exciting new partnerships in 2016!
DIY Wedding Coordination + DIY Wedding Event Staff
Both these services have been hugely popular, and we received the WeddingWire's Couples' Choice Award for our work in 2015. This year, we are building on these existing services to provide more value to our clients than ever. Couples working with us can expect more personalized, wedding planning support and continued affordability when they book with us.
Phew! That was a lot to announce, but we're so excited about each of these, we wanted to make sure to include them all to keep you updated on all the help that's available for couples planning their own weddings.
So here's everyone to the start of an amazing 2016! We're looking forward to planning with you and being their every step of the way!
P.S. We also have The Ultimate DIY Wedding Planning Checklist that provides a road map for planning a DIY wedding. Check it out if you're wondering all that planning a DIY wedding really entails!
