Recently, at the Celebrate! Party Showcase in Old Greenwich, Conn., we met photographer Lawrence Greller of Lawrence Greller Photography and Video. Very nice man! He handed us a flyer that included details on his "stimulus package" - basically his discounted photography packages meant to help families keep costs down for their Mitzvahs. We like it!
Ask the Mitzvah Vendors you are considering hiring if they have any "stimulus packages." They may be willing to negotiate with you to help you keep your party planning costs down.
