About Us and FAQ
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, we 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. And what's more is that we genuinely believe that the wedding should be enjoyed in three-parts: the planning, the day itself, and in the remembering of it all.
With access to bite-sized video tutorials, customized checklists, sample timeline PDF’s, and cheat sheets to make every last bit easy peasy, WeddingPlanningDIY.com 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.
How do I know this program is going to be a game-changer for your planning experience? Because I’ve been planning weddings of all kinds for over twenty years.
I’m Tonia Adleta – owner and Creative Director of Aribella Events – an award-winning wedding and event planning and bespoke floral design studio. I am a planner by trade, an artist by passion and a coffee-lover by circumstance.
As a wedding planner veteran, I truly believe that wedding professionals are uniquely positioned to change the world by our creativity and the power of celebration. But I also know that a full-blown wedding planner just isn’t in the budget for everyone. Based on my experience, I know that not every wedding needs a planner, but every wedding needs a plan. I’m excited to bring all of the tricks of the trade to you and your planning process so that you can benefit from what I know and apply it in order to design and implement the wedding of your dreams!
You do your research. We get that - and what's more, we appreciate it. Here are a few questions (and just as important - the answers!) we get most often, to get you started:
As much or as little as you want it to. This is a resource for you to access and utilize at your own pace. That being said, you will get out of it what you put in. Practically speaking, there are over 50 videos, ranging from 2 to 5 minutes each, in the Core program. You can watch the videos and go do to the work for each before watching the next, or devour them all at once; it’s totally up to you and how you work best.
The course is structured in 3-month subscription increments. If you put in just an hour or two per week for the full three months, you’ll be able to consume all the material included. (Of course, you’ll have to allow additional time for actual implementation and planning.) If you choose Custom or Concierge, the plans that includes One on One support, make sure to calculate that in as well. The good news is, any of the Wedding Planning DIY program options will cut down your research, planning and frustration time considerably! (And considering it takes over 250 hours to plan a wedding, according to the current average, the WeddingPlanningDIY.com course is a massive time-savings!)
None, nada, zip, zilch. All you need to know is that you’ve found “The One.” We’ll cover the rest together. :)
No - because this is a fully digital product and you get immediate access to all the material, there is no money-back guarantee.
Here’s the thing, the “DI” part of “DIY” is . . . "do it.” So you’ll have to put in some time and energy to make it work for you. This will (definitely!) make knowing what to do - and just as important, how to do it - easier, but it’s still dependent on you doing - and/or delegating.
And even if/when you opt to bring in the pros, you will be so much more educated in how to hire the right people to help you design your special day. So really, it will help you tremendously no matter what - unless you just flat out don’t do anything with WeddingPlanningDIY.com after purchasing. (We can't help much on that one.) ;)
The best way to get a taste of what WeddingPlanningDIY.com is all about is to sign up for the FREE mini-wedding planning course. (You can do so just below these FAQs.) No matter where you are in the planning process, there are things to glean from the foundational free course that give you an idea of the 50+ additional videos, workbook and monthly calls.
We LOVE our wedding partners, especially those of us who have been around the block a time or two and know first-hand how much effort, love, and laughter (ok, full-disclosure: and a little stress) go into making couples' dreams come true for their wedding days.
