Hiring Your Own Party Staff

I recently read a list of the top ten 2009 Wedding Trends according to The Knot.  The top trend listed was ” Rustic, homespun details, outdoor weddings.”

If you are planning a charming and personal wedding like this, you are probably coordinating more than less of the details yourself.  While this might take a little more effort, it undoubtedly will make the wedding that much more “yours.”  And at same time help you save a few dollars.

If you are in charge of finding your own party staff, check out Our Silver Platter.

It is an innovative website that allows you to find and hire your own local cooks, waiters and bartenders. You can post a help wanted ad and then review hourly rates, experience and user feedback of those interested.

And if you use coupon code PREOWNED (all uppercase) between now and December 31st, Our Silver Platter will waive the fee.  What could be better?
