After birthday parties, children would often walk out with lolly bags. These bags would be completely filled with sweets and chocolate for children to indulge in on the way home from the party, even though they’d only just had cake!
Birthdays and weddings are similar in some ways. Both can be as DIY or as outsourced as you like. That means you can end up saving a lot of money, but doing a fair bit of work or you could end up blowing the budget completely without even realising it.
