Feel the Wedding Day Love

Being your own wedding planner... just got a whole lot easier!

Enroll & Feel the Love!

Welcome to Feel the Wedding Day Love


Let's be honest. You are definitely capable of planning your wedding, so you've decided to skip hiring a wedding planner so you can use the money toward other things in life like owning a home, paying off debt, or starting a family.

You may have thought, "What does a wedding planner do that I can't figure out?" And you start off strong, but as it turns out, it's really time consuming & confusing. You start to wonder if there are important things you're missing.

But there's a simpler way. You can plan your own wedding and have an amazing, stress-free wedding day.

Feel the Wedding Day Love teaches you how to plan your wedding & cover all the small details (just like a professional would) without sacrificing all of your time or going over budget.

No chaos. No stress. Just love.

  • IT'S STEP-BY-STEP, so you never have to waste time figuring out what to do next (because when you're planning a wedding, time is precious!)
  • IT'S INTERACTIVE with videos, group wedding planning phone calls, & a Facebook group so you're never on your own
  • IT'S CUSTOMIZABLE & can be used for any budget-friendly, laidback, or DIY wedding

"She was so organized and helpful during the planning process. There were so many important details I would have completely forgot or overlooked if it wasn't for Caitlin and her knowledge of planning a DIY wedding... Caitlin is more than a wedding planner, she truly cares about the couple and making their wedding day special." - Karah & Sam


How It Works


  • Learn all the steps to planning a wedding in a clear, time-saving, & easy-to-follow format so that your wedding goes off without a hitch
  • Follow the steps on your own or do them with your partner, a parent, or friend


  • Join the group wedding planning phone calls, & speak with a wedding professional to get all your questions answered
  • See how other couples are handling the same challenges & decide what solutions will work best for your wedding


  • Be fully prepared for your wedding day, so you, your family, & friends can enjoy the day... and not work it
  • Feel confident knowing that you've covered every detail
  • On your wedding day, sit back, relax, and watch your vision unfold

"Caitlin made me feel at ease and empowered in the wedding planning process. She was so organized, empathetic, and forward-thinking, and she made us feel so comfortable going into our wedding." - Sarah & Sam


You can absolutely plan your own wedding.

But it's so much easier & quicker when you decide to combine your vision with the experience of someone who can show you the ropes.

Like building a house, baking a cake, or working on a car for the first time... it goes much more smoothly when you have a helping hand.

That way, your vision actually does come true & you don't have to sacrifice other things (like your time & money) in the process.

  • Couples who have decided not to hire an expensive wedding planner
  • Couples who have a tight budget for their venue & vendors
  • Couples who are not having a turnkey wedding
  • Couples who know planning is much more nuanced than what's on Pinterest
  • Couples who are balancing their time and money with other life commitments
  • Couples who want their family & friends to enjoy their wedding (not work it)
  • Couples who want a chaos-free, stress-free, love-filled wedding day

"If we could do it all over again we wouldn't have changed a single thing!" - Dakota & Andy



Waking up carefree on your wedding day without last-minute details to worry about

Beaming smiles as you spend true quality time with the people you love

Being fully present with your partner, family, & friends all day

Having so much fun during the reception because everything is going smoothly

Dancing the night away surrounded by everyone you love

That's what your wedding can be like when you plan it with Feel The Wedding Day Love.


Have the Wedding You Want

I've documented my entire process as wedding profesional for covering all the details (especially, the small ones). Now you can use it, too. This process takes the guesswork out of planning so you can have the wedding you're envisioning without going over budget.

Four years ago my husband and I planned our own wedding, and I thought, "There must be an easier way for couples who are planning their own budget-friendly weddings."

This is me & my husband, Rick, on our wedding day!

So three years ago, I became a wedding coordinator to learn how to make it easier for other couples planning budget-friendly weddings.

Here's Phoebe & Ben (plus their dog, Toby!) who had an affordable DIY wedding at a small inn they rented with their close family & friends.

This is Melissa & Ian who had a seamlessly smooth, weekend-long wedding at Melissa's childhood camp.

This is Adriana & Jamie who successfully mixed professional vendors and DIY elements to pull off a casual, laidback, & fun farm wedding.

You, too, can bring it all together into a super smooth, love-filled wedding day.

Your Wedding is Unique

(and it can't be summed up in a checklist)

For that reason, Feel the Wedding Day Love includes checklists & so much more...

Support so you can ask questions when you have them

Videos that clearly explain each step

Templates & spreadsheets to customize & use as your own

A professional wedding coordinator to help you every step of the way

"My husband and I were lucky enough to find them after realizing our DIY camp-style weekend wedding was a bigger task than we had accounted for. I immediately loved Caitlin’s energy and knew that she had experience with weekend DIY weddings" - Anneka & Dan

For example, I took the Wedding Venues chapter to all my venue visits and it helped me know exactly what questions were important to ask. Resources like this are so much more helpful than what you'll find in a wedding magazine!" - Kelsa


Bonus #2: Access to Budget-Friendly Wedding Planning Webinars ($50 value)

Isn't it so frustrating when you can only find professional wedding planning advice from big time wedding planners who are out of touch with real-world, budget weddings?

"It was refreshing to see all the advice was tailored just for my unique needs. So much out there is for mainstream weddings and geared towards higher budgets and 'onbeat' ways of doing things.

21st Century Wedding Planning.

Traditional resources like wedding planning checklists, books, and magazines are cookie cutter, but your wedding is anything but cookie cutter.

Through videos, downloadable templates, wedding planning calls, and more, Feel the Wedding Day Love helps you connect the dots and make the best decisions for your unique wedding.

Feel the Wedding Day Love is customized, detailed, and creative - just like your wedding.

Hi, I'm Caitlin!

In 2013, I planned my own laidback, budget-friendly summer camp wedding. On the day of the wedding, there was no planner, no coordinator.

Our wedding was beautiful. It was meaningful. It was homegrown & heartfelt. But, I'll tell you, it wasn't easy. And it wasn't as relaxed as I know now it could have been. But just as it was, it made me a big believer that planning your own wedding is a totally worthy endeavor.

There's nothing like looking around your wedding, and seeing all the love that surrounds you, your partner, family & friends.

I became a wedding coordinator to support other couples planning their own budget-friendly weddings. Call me corny, but I really believe these unextravagant, love-filled weddings make the world a better place.

Whether you have a big wedding budget or not, every couple deserves the experience of soaking up all the love on your wedding day.

Feel the Wedding Day Love is my way of helping to spread love - one budget, one couple, one wedding at a time.

"I think with so many options in the wedding industry today, to me it’s all about vendors that you are comfortable with, understand your vision, fit your budget and let you plan your wedding how you see it, whether that’s lots of frills or no frills at all. This is where Caitlin steps in and is exceptional and unique. She is all about her couples seeing their vision through." - Somerby, Owner, Somerby Jones Photography

Step-by-Step Lessons


You'll walk away with a complete plan for your wedding day that is 100% customized for your unique wedding.



Professional wedding planning help is a wonderful, invaluable service for the right couples. But the truth is, it's just not in everyone's budget, and not everyone wants their hand held.

Feel the Wedding Day Love provides you with profesional wedding planning help at a fraction of the cost and gives you the freedom to plan your wedding the way you want.

Step-by-step wedding planning help has never been so affordable and flexible.

Important Note on Pricing

Included for FREE are the group phone calls, Wedding Planning Resource Library, budget-friendly webinars, and ceremony templates. They are included at no additional cost to you because each couple uses these to varying amounts. I'm a budget gal, and know how important it is only to spend money on what's absolutely necessary for your wedding (and nothing more). The resources are not sold seperately so when you enroll, you have everything needed to plan a smooth wedding day.

"It's so worth it! Julie can't stop talking about how much value there is!" - Andi & Julie

Frequently Asked Questions

I love this service, but it's not in my budget. Any suggestions?
I totally know how you feel because I didn't budget for any wedding planning help when I was planning my own wedding, and couldn't imagine spending an extra nickel on anything that we didn't 100% need like food or plates. Feel the Wedding Day Love actually saves most couples money because couples who use the program don't run into costly, unexpected surprises. And I share my budget-stretching tips throughout the program. Couples who use Feel the Wedding Day Love do a better job of staying in their budget, and some couples even come in under budget! Plus, we have the 100% Happiness Guarantee. If your wedding isn't better because of it, your money will be fully refunded - so there's no risk!
Can't I find the same information online for free?
You can find some of it online. That’s where I started learning about weddings. But most of it I learned from experience and trial-and-error. What is definitely not part of free online resources is the step-by-step organization and full coverage of the smaller logistical details that are important to keeping a relaxed vibe on your wedding day. Identifying and organizing them is a unique process for each wedding, and I teach you exactly how to do that.
What if I have event planning experience? Will this help me?
Yes. It's great that you have event planning experience (that puts you ahead of the learning curve!), but if you haven't planned weddings before, it's impossible to know the small details that are specifically important to weddings. I had event planning experience before planning my own wedding, too, but realized planning corporate events, fundraisers, and other large events are definitely different than planning a wedding.
Is Feel the Wedding Day Love a substitute for a wedding planner?
No, hiring a wedding planner is definitely the easiest route to go. If you have a wedding planner (an experienced, professional with many positive reviews who helps you every step of the way), you do not need this program. If you have a day-of coordinator, this program will be a great supplement to their services (see more on this below). With that said, professional wedding planners and day-of coordinators are out of most couples' budgets. That's why Feel the Wedding Day Love was created - to make professional wedding planning affordable & accessible to all couples no matter their budget.
What if I have a day-of coordinator or someone else helping out as a point person?
If you have a day-of coordinator or someone else helping out as a point person, then Feel the Wedding Day Love will definitely work for you. It will help you cover all the small details and get super organized well in advance of your wedding. That way, when your day-of coordinator or point person steps in to help, it's incredibly easy for her or him to execute your plan.
What if I don't have a day-of coordinator or point person?
My experience has been that it's best to at least have a point person. If you don't have a day-of coordinator that's totally OK. I'll walk you through some alternative, affordable (including free) options, so you can figure out the best point person for your wedding.
How do you know Feel the Wedding Day Love works?
This is the exact, step-by-step process I use with my wedding coordination clients, and have been developing through trial and error for the last three years. It works with different couples, different venues, different vendors, etc. My wedding coordination business, DIY Wedding Mentor, uses this system for every wedding and has a 5-star rating both on WeddingWire and The Knot. I tell you this not to boast, but to let you know Feel the Wedding Day Love is the real deal.
It's still early in my planning. Can I enroll at a later date?
Yes, but the number one piece of feedback we hear is "I wish I did this sooner." Having a professional's help makes planning much easier than doing it entirely on your own, so it's helpful to enroll even if you are just getting started or have put your planning on hold for a bit.
What if it's late in my planning?
The recommended time for beginning Feel the Wedding Day Love is at least 3 months out from your wedding. It's ideal to start as soon as possible, but you can go through the program at a comfortable pace anytime up to 3 months. If your wedding is closer than 3 months, feel free to contact me, and we can see if it's possible to have you take the "fast track" for your wedding.
Will I be on my own?
Feel the Wedding Day Love is designed to make sure no couple planning their own wedding ever has to plan alone. Between the group wedding planning phone calls and a private Facebook group, I am here to support you.
How long do I have access?
You will have access to the materials and group wedding planning calls from now until your wedding.
How much time will this take?
The time it will take depends on where you are in your planning. Considering that most people spend between 200-500 hours planning their wedding, Feel the Wedding Day Love helps speed up the process by showing you exactly what you need to do and when.
Is this a cookie cutter wedding day plan?
No, you'll walk away with a completely unique wedding day plan for your specific wedding.
When will I get access to Feel the Wedding Day Love ?
As soon as you enroll, you will receive access to all the wedding planning materials.
How does the cost compare to traditional wedding coordination services?
The industry standard suggested pricing for "wedding day management" is $3,500. My in-person wedding coordination services start at $1,875, which I keep as low as possible to help couples having budget-friendly weddings. There are definitely lower-priced options, and often with lower prices, comes less experience and more risk. Feel the Wedding Day Love is not a substitute for coordination, but if you're saving money by hiring a less experienced coordinator, it's smart to use Feel the Wedding Day Love to make sure your coordinator is truly ready to go for your wedding day.
What's the risk?
Feel the Wedding Day Love has a 100% Happiness Guarantee. If you use the system and do not feel like your wedding is happier because of it, then we'll provide a 100% refund. We ask that you submit your full wedding day plan if requesting a refund. Once you submit your wedding day plan and we confirm that you used the materials as instructed, then we will issue you 100% refund.
I'm a wedding coordinator. Can I use Feel the Wedding Day Love with my clients?
Yes, you can use Feel the Wedding Day Love to supplement your services. Licenses are available for wedding coordinators who would like to use the program with their clients. Contact us at info@diyweddingmentor.com.
I own a venue, caterering, or photography company. Can my couples use Feel the Wedding Day Love?
Yes, Feel the Wedding Day Love is perfect for vendors looking to help clients who don't have wedding planners. Contact us at info@diyweddingmentor for the options available.
