But what about the day of your event? Do you still want to be dealing with the details as the guests are walking through the door? Do you want to be busy paying out vendors, serving all day, and then cleaning it all up in the end? Wouldn't you rather feel like a guest at your own party?
The way to keep things affordable but be sure that they're still memorable and stress-free is to call in help on the day of your event. You can still do-it-yourself but you won't have to go-it-alone.
