I’ve been talking a lot this week offline about the role of vendors in your wedding. With so much DIY, budget constraints and plain creativity it’s easy to take on entire things like catering yourself. In my own experience, with my own worry wart head and a mother who worries the best thing I’ve ever done for celebrations is to hire catering for instance, mainly because if I didn’t I would be running around trying to get the food ready. If I relieved myself of that duty than you can bet my mother would be doing it or another family member and to be honest? I want her having fun and enjoying herself, not worrying about the oven timer!

So my question to you Dotties is- where do you draw the line with getting help? Did you outsource absolutely everything or did you do it yourself? How did you make sure everyone had fun?
