Calling all lovers of DIY projects! If you’re going down the road of exploring destination wedding locations and Iceland is on your list… We have some amazing news for you today! Our team has crafted some thorough Do-It-Yourself Iceland Wedding Guides that will aid you in your journey! Follow us today as we share some fabulous insight into them.
DIY Iceland Wedding VS Hiring a Local Wedding Planner
There are those of us that naturally gravitate to doing things ourselves and others who feel more comfortable sourcing to experts in the industry. But there is no shame either way, each couple to their own course! However, the differences in the routes, boil down to how you two want to spend your time.
To illustrate, if you decide to venture down the path of DIY Iceland wedding planning be ready to research your brains out! Although, our Iceland Wedding Planner blog along with others out there offer some excellent resources, will it be enough? We’ve read that on average, couples spend 500+ hours (or 20+ days) researching and planning their own destination weddings. And personally, I’ve been there done that TWICE well before there were developed wedding markets for Iceland or in the Lofoten Islands, so I know it’s true!
Furthermore, in hiring a local Iceland Wedding Planner you have a resource that is live and always accessible to you. Someone who provides direct access, contacts, knows the rules, regulations, keeps you on track and planned way more weddings than you! Therefore, if you’re a person who is short on spare time and / or likes to procrastinate it is beneficial hiring a local Iceland Wedding Planner. Also, the team can provide guidance or handle bookings, scheduling, navigate through any challenges, certainly help you through the permissions and permit process too.
Now if you’re somewhere in between, where does that leave you? Maybe a combo of having DIY Iceland wedding information at your finger tips and hiring a Day of Planner?! Let’s see what’s possible!
IWP Do-It-Yourself Iceland Wedding Guides
Likely you know we are the OG’s of planning adventure weddings in Iceland. So having 10+ years of experience, photographing and planning 100’s of Iceland weddings all around the entire country it’s fair to say we are seasoned experts on this topic! But, we know our style of experience driven weddings isn’t for everyone. Nor do we want to be a company who takes on 45+ weddings a year.
On the other hand, we have a deep appreciation for you do-it-yourselfers out there! As this is one of the countless reasons Iceland Wedding Planner was formally founded back in 2012! Nevertheless, we still see the need out there for DIY Iceland wedding support. Especially if you do not have the budget to hire a local wedding planner. Or you just straight up like to do things yourself!
Therefore, we would LOVE to introduce you to our Iceland Wedding Planner Shop and it’s current contents…
