Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions? “I’m engaged, now what do I do?” “How can I afford the wedding I really want?” “Does the budget include the wedding dress and rings?” “How can I get more for my money?” “Will we be able to afford our honeymoon?” “How do I plan a wedding without it LOOKING cheap?!”

DIY Wedding Planning was founded by me, Lori Bodkin.
After running a successful brick and mortar event planning, design and rental company for 13 years, I decided to make a change and focus on what I loves most: teaching couples to create the wedding of their dreams, regardless of the budget they have to spend.
You’ll find that my approach to online wedding information is different. I have developed a vision over the past four years after interacting with over 50,000 brides and couples on a variety of platforms.
More specifically, I use the perfect blend of insider tips, design know how and personal experience to help couples with creative and cost effective solutions so they can have their dream wedding .
