  • What is an All Inclusive Wedding?
    An all-inclusive wedding is an all-inclusive price that Cabin Heaven offers to cover some of the major aspects of your wedding. All-inclusive weddings typically include the rental of the venue, tent, chairs, tables, string lights, setup, and breakdown.
  • What is a DIY Wedding?
    DIY weddings, on the other hand, give brides & grooms the freedom to arrange all the aspects of the wedding themselves. We can offer some basic necessities and allow couples to design & control all elements of their own day.
  • The Pros and Cons of All-Inclusive Weddings
    All-inclusive weddings are super simple for you to organize. They make planning your wedding a lot easier as the basic necessities are all provided with one price. You don’t have to worry about juggling multiple vendors for cake, tent, chairs, and more. You can relax knowing you have the biggest pieces of your wedding in a place with one vendor (us), and you can focus on the more personalized and creative aspects of your wedding day. However, you don’t have as much control over what you spend with the venue. For example, you won’t be able to shop around for cheaper table linen as you will have to order this through the venue.
  • The Pros and Cons of DIY Weddings
    DIY weddings can be super fun, and, if you do it right, it can save you money! You have so much more freedom to create the wedding of your dreams. Maybe you want pyrotechnics, or to add some of your homemade wine to the tables as a special touch? Going DIY means you have more control over who you want to work with and how it gets put together. You can be as creative as you like, and run the day how you want to. However, you have to be a certain type of person to take on a DIY wedding. They can be a lot of hard work! There is so much you have to think about that you wouldn’t in an all-inclusive wedding. Things like bathrooms, tables, chairs, cutlery, ice to keep the beer and wine cool, and more. And that’s only a sample of what you need to consider. This is probably the biggest con with DIY weddings. You just can’t predict what might happen and it’s very likely something will. Organizing a wedding is not an easy task. That’s why it’s important to seek advice and support from a professional wedding planner if you choose this option. You could ask your bridesmaids to help, but do you really want them walking around serving canapés because you didn’t hire enough staff? Or would you prefer them by your side, relaxed and enjoying your special day?
  • All-inclusive VS DIY - Which one is better?
    There’s no set answer for this. The verdict completely depends on you as a person, the people you have around you, and how much time you have available to dedicate to the planning. If you are a bit disorganized or apprehensive in nature, I would recommend going for the all-inclusive wedding. If you are typically quite laid back and organized then either option would work well for you. But if you are quite creative, you might feel a little restricted with an all-inclusive wedding, therefore a DIY wedding could be a better fit.
