I ended up doing it myself for many of the same reasons you talk about- I love to do it and know what I like.  The decision maker for me though was the fact that I had a Destination Wedding in a small town and there really wasn’t anyone to do it.  The cool thing though was I spent less money on some great products that I still use.  And I did “trials” on myself just like I would have if I went to someone else.  Overall it was less stressful for me and worked out perfectly.

It sounds like you have the right reasons to do it yourself. Probably the best reason to hire someone is the pamper factor. Why don’t you go best of both and schedule a mani-pedi that day, or a massage? You still get the pamper factor, but will have the look you want.

If I had the skill to get the look I want, I would do it. I do my everyday makeup well, but just don’t have the extra oomph skills.
