    Officiant, photographer, DJ, decorator (who's doing the flowers too), hair, makeup, venue, sign lady, and 2 cake ladies (one is from a gluten-free bakery because FH is GF). Oh, and my mom decided she wanted to rent a limo... So that's about 11.

    Aside from venue staff, we will have a photographer, two videographers, an officiant, and a DJ. I am still deciding if I want to hire someone to do my hair and makeup or rely on one of my girls to do it for me...

    Flowers

    Catering

    possible decor depending on cost. I really don't want to take everything down at the end of the night and would like someone else to do it.

    So far we have:
    venue/food
    photographer
    singer/dj
    cake
    officiant

    we still need to figure out flowers, but I might just do fake from Michael’s for decor and go to a simple grocery store for fresh flowers for the bouquets to save.
