Because not every wedding needs a planner, but every wedding needs a plan. 

So you’re getting married....


Also: Oh. My. God. The overwhelm!

There’s certainly no shortage of information about wedding planning, which is kind of the problem. If you read even a few blogs or websites about planning, you’ll find so much conflicting advice and information. Not to mention the continually flowing advice…. from literally *everyone* around you who thinks they have the best ideas on how to make your wedding memorable/unique/affordable/elegant.

Yes – everyone has an opinion. But no one seems to be able to really show you HOW to get, or help you figure out, what YOU really want. You just can’t get that in a blog article. (Or in a conversation with your future mother-in-law.)

There’s SO much to do. SO much to plan. SO much to pay for.

You don’t know where to start and at this point, you’re not even having an ounce of fun with it. Listen – your wedding should be enjoyed in three phases: planning, experiencing and reminiscing. If you’re not enjoying the planning phase, you’re missing out big time.

Planning your wedding can be so much fun! It can be organized and manageable and exciting! We know you wanted to enjoy the process, and that you’re probably not loving it right now. But let’s get you back to the fun part.

You know the picture you had in your mind about how this would all feel? Your family being excited alongside you. Your wedding party girlfriends laughing together as you pick out dresses and jewelry and flowers. You and your fiancé having a blast putting all of this together.

Yeah, let's make it look like that again!

Your wedding. YOUR Love Story.

This is about YOU and your love story. You deserve the wedding of your dreams, and we can help you get there - without spending thousands over your budget or pulling every last hair out in the process.

The Wedding Planning DIY program isn’t just another collection of blog posts or another series of thinly veiled advertisements. Listen, I get it – the wedding industry is massive. And you can never be sure what advice is well-intentioned and which is just trying to get you to buy something WAY out of your price range.

Wedding Planning DIY is designed to get you the most customized roadmap you can get, at a fraction of the cost of an elite planning outfit. Can you continue combing the entire Internet for the best hacks, tips, and hints? Sure. But do you really have another 100+ hours to frustrate yourself that way? Our guess is no.

With access to bite-sized video tutorials, customized checklists, sample timeline PDF’s, and cheat sheets to make every last bit easy peasy, is pretty much the answer to all of your wedding questions…all tied up with a pretty bow, in one place! And at a tiny fraction of the price of hiring an a full-service wedding planner, this just might be the best investment you make for your wedding.  (And considering our founder has been planning weddings & events for over 20 years, with work featured in everything from Martha Stewart Weddings to Vogue, The Knot and Bride's, we know weddings.)

The good news here is that to "DIY" your wedding doesn’t mean you have to be lost in the “world of weddings.” You can be a highly informed Wedding DIY’er, with access to some powerful tips that will make a huge impact on both your bottom line and your timeline. Plus you can upgrade your subscription to include one or more consulting calls with an expert wedding planner from our team so that you are sure you’re taking the right steps at the right time, not to mention get advice tailored for you specifically. 

Curious? Here's a Sneak Peek of Just SOME of What's Covered: 

Vetting Your Vendors

Creating your Dream Team of Wedding Professionals doesn't happen by accident. From how to choose which pros are the right fit for you (and your budget) to understanding the contracts you'll sign, we've got you covered on all things wedding vendors. 

I'm Just Here for The Cake. 

And the hors d'oeuvres. And cocktail hour (but should it be after the ceremony, or before?) And the buffet.... unless we do stations. Or plated. Or something interactive. If donut walls are out, what's in? And what about the After Party, or Brunch the next morning....? All thing food & hospitality, from Appetizers to Zinfadel.

Flowers, Decor & Design

From knowing how to maximize your floral and decor budget, to creating a realistic "Wish List" for everything design-related, to making sure that your theme is beautiful and consistent from start to finish, coordinated seamlessly and nowhere near "overdone," we'll give you all the inside tips.

Here Comes the Beauty

What are the things you could be doing now to be ready for your close-up on your Big Day? How do you choose the right hair and make-up professionals, not just for you, but for your wedding party too? And what should you have in your Wedding Day Emergency Kit? We've got you. 

And that's just the Beginning...

With 55+ bite-sized video tutorials on all of these topics, not to mention dozens more all included, PLUS our private forum and #AMA (Ask Me Anything) calls with our planners each month, all of your wedding planning questions are just a click away from being answered!

What you'll walk away with:

·      Confidence of knowing you have a plan (and probably a back-up plan too!)

·      Knowing what to delegate and how to enlist the help of those in your inner circle

·      A timeline that is manageable for everyone

·      Knowledge of what to do, when to do it, and how to do, all to create YOUR dream wedding, not someone else's

·      Step-by-step how-to, from choosing the perfect venue to hiring the right professionals, trimming the budget, managing the guest list, and infusing your wedding with your personality 

·      An enjoyable wedding planning experience!

What Other Couples Say


Wedding Planning DIY really helped us get an understanding of what our priorities are and where to best allocate our resources. Moreover, I'm a business owner and, quite frankly, don't have a ton of extra time to spend obsessing over every single detail. Tonia's priceless knowledge and experience has allowed us to plan a kicka** event, without spending every waking minute on it. The time, money and frustration saved is well worth the extra investment of WeddingPlanningDIY, even if, like us, you also have a tight budget. 

Lauren & Cam


From my first call, I felt a sense of relief. I am someone who is always busy (like most of us!) and the thought of planning a wedding made me want to elope. I didn't even know I needed this - that's the amazing part. We live far from all of our family and we want to have our wedding in a location that isn't convenient to transportation; they had super simple, easy solutions that put my mind at ease. Working with the WeddingPlanningDIY team has taken the majority of my stress away. SO thankful -worth every penny for peace of mind and having someone in your corner!

Courtney & Sarah


What I found most helpful, already at the very beginning, was the information about hotel blocks and everything about the guest list. Tonia is extremely knowledgeable in all the stages of wedding planning - from picking out a venue to transportation for the wedding party and guests. The program also eased my stress in streamlining and organizing the guest list so it made the seating chart SO much easier to do. Having all of this figured out, my stress level has decreased and I’m excited to move onto the next step in the wedding process.
