‘Always use Professionals’ for your Home Improvements Planning a D.I.Y. Project this year? Looking to test yourself a little; try something new? Well, hold on there just a minute! Trying to complete DIY projects you don’t have the skill set for in order to save money will lead to a false economy (and probably an angry partner too!). The Yorkshire Gazette came across a shocking statistic just last week. The statistic was published by Wickes Home Improvement Report and it stated that ‘Of 2,000 householders planning DIY projects questioned, just 21 percent of people said that they would call upon experts to for their installations, painting and general decorating.’ According to one of our featured tradesmen, this is a worrying statistic. When we told him the figures he told us, ‘this is fairly typical of homeowners and we see it all the time. The problem with it is that of those 79% of people who do the work themselves – how many will end up regretting the decision? Many

of my clients come to me shortly after doing the work and wishing they’d come to me in the first place. Others put up with their own work for a while, quietly regretting it, until a year or so later they give me a call. People try to save money by doing it themselves, but it can cost much more in the long run’ It’s certainly a valid point. The problem is, DIY doesn’t always fall within the realm of reality. Realistically, you can’t always do it yourself because you don’t have the proper equipment, one of the skills required would take more than a few weekends to learn, or the cost of purchasing the necessary materials is just counterproductive when you need only a small amount. When you hit the wall of limitations on DIY, you can still DDIY, or Don’t Do It Yourself without feeling inadequate. Remember that Experts are called Experts for a reason. They have spent years practicing and training their skills in

Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and of course you want it to be special. Knowing that hundreds of newly engaged couples, all over the country, are picking up this issue of the Yorkshire Gazette, we wanted to bring to them a simple guide to planning their special day. So the first thing to know is that there are six basic areas to cover; all of which are essential to you and your guests enjoying the day. First you need to decide a date! Everything becomes real once that date is set. Once it’s done, you can then work on your budget. To do this correctly: sit down with whoever is paying for your wedding day and have an honest, frank discussion about how much you will be allowed to spend. From there you can decide what is most important to you, the priorities and what can be ignored. Once your budget is set, it is in stone. The beginning of your marriage will go much smoother if you are not arguing with your new spouse, parents, or in-laws over money.

Try not to go into debt for your wedding day; you’ll enjoy your wedding so much more if you are not worrying how you are going to make the payments on it. Now that your budget is created, you’ll need to decide who, what, and where. Who are you going to invite: close family and friends, just family, or your extended family, friends, and acquaintances? Keep in mind that the more people you invite the more expensive your wedding day will be. You will need to find a space that can accommodate the people on your guest list too, so the larger your list is, the larger the space must be, and again the amount of space you are going to rent can cost you a little or a lot. Another consideration is one venue or two; will you have your ceremony and reception together or in different locations? If you are planning on having your ceremony in your church, you will have to have your reception elsewhere; otherwise you can probably have the two on the same premises. Next you are going to want to hire the wedding vendors

and service providers will help you make your day special. Rome was not built by one person alone, and neither will your wedding day. Your budget, choice of venue(s), and the type of ceremony you have will determine who you need to help you, but a general list is: a wedding planner/coordinator, stationer, efficient, caterer, deejay/band/other entertainment, florist, wedding photographer, and a car hire company. If your budget is smaller, you will want to cut some of these people out, and/or do some of the jobs yourselves, but only you can decide which people are indispensable. And finally – PLAN! WRITE UP A SCHEDULE! Waiting to do a job until the last minute will cause you undue stress and make your wedding day seem more like a chore than a joy – something you really don’t want, right? Also, be sure to recruit help; doing a job with friends and family is always more fun than by yourself, and the work goes quicker with many hands instead of just two. Remember, what your wedding day is like is
