When it comes to DIY for your wedding, homemade gifts, favors, and more can add a personal touch and can be made and assembled months in advance. However, there are certain aspects of your weddings where we as experienced wedding professionals here at Meadows Event Center would advise that you stick to a professional for. Here are five of them.

Hair and Makeup

Most women know how to do their hair and makeup quite well, thanks to social media apps like YouTube. For your wedding day, we suggest you book a professional as soon as you have your wedding date. This will ensure that you look your best for photographs and you also deserve to feel pampered on your special day.


Florals are one of those elements that have to be arranged a day or two before and best left to a professional. You can look around until you find a florist that you resonate with and also use a lot of greenery in place of flowers, but please hire a professional.

The Cake

Not only with the baking but also with the transportation on the wedding day. You will have way too many things doing to focus properly as you should when it comes to the baking of the wedding cake and you should not even consider transporting the cake to the venue yourself. Hire a professional baker that you can trust.


Just like with the cake, you do not have the time. And catering to a large number of people you’ll be having for your wedding is a whole different thing from the fancy meals you whip up for yourself and close friends occasionally. Hire a caterer!

The Music

No dear, your friend with the great playlist cannot handle the entertainment at your wedding. Please hire either a wedding band or a DJ well in advance. They can announce the bridal party as well as other events that need to happen on your wedding timeline.
