I think its not bad!! I put an ad to do diy unity candles and I have gotten some orders for that but instead its not renting, its theirs to keep. Put out an ad and see what you get.

Ontario? where in Ontario? mmmm…. could we be competing? LOL

That’s what I was thinking of doing once I have money saved up for the materials. I wanted something to show people to pique their interest. I was going to do some projects and set up a website and do a business card. There are stuff I sell online so my clients don’t have to be in the same city as me. 

Is that what you were thinking of doing too?

What exactly are you selling? Are these DIY projects they finish or are you providing a service?

I have a friend of a friend who does this in NYC. She made a gorgeous photo booth backdrop for our mutual friend! I’m not sure about her business model or how she prices things or finds customers, but I think she’s doing pretty well. It’s a great idea!

I think there is a real market for renting vintage stuff, providing event styling, and creating personalized things for bridges & grooms (think etsy).

Just don’t sell yourself short- DIY is a dirty word for some brides (NOT any bees though).  I would more market yourself as an event stylist and rental site for unique decor.

Good luck!

I agree with carolyn. Definitely market yourself as an event stylist/coordinator not DIY. I’ve seen so many excellent ideas on weddingbee, I’m sure that people would buy what you make. If i saw your ad and it said diy, i would think why would I pay someone to DIY my wedding when I can do that myself.
