DIY Wedding

The Evolution of the DIY Bride

“My mom always jokes, ‘You have it so hard planning your wedding. When I was getting married, all I had to decide was the color of our candied almonds,'” says Caitlin Frauton over the phone from Waterbury, VT. She’s the founder of DIY Wedding Mentor, a two-and-a-half-year-old business that helps soon-to-be-married couples organize and manage their wedding planning, especially if it involves an unconventional location like a working dairy farm , a restored Victorian home or in the case of Frauton’s special day in 2012, a sleepaway summer camp.
