In today’s blog, I list eleven do’s and don’ts to consider before you start planning your unique wedding. Be it a small civil ceremony or a more elaborate destination wedding for just the two of you, these elopement tips will get you prepared to say ‘I do.’

As you have seen in my last two posts (here and here), Vanessa and Nate hosted a beautiful wedding at Maritime Parc. Like me, Vanessa is a fellow crafter, and she put a lot of love into several projects that capitalized on her creativity and made her big day truly unique. The hard work was worth it, but more so for some projects than others.

Without further ado, here are some do’s and don’ts for wedding DIY projects from recent bride, Vanessa.
Vanessa and Nate’s Maritime Parc wedding offered plenty of opportunities for great photos.

One option their wedding also included was a separate portrait session at sunset. Find out how we scheduled a hassle-free sunset photo session on today’s blog post.
