There are so many things in life worth celebrating. There are also so many company milestones that need to be publicized. Did one of the kids graduate college? Did the company close a huge deal? Is it the 50th Wedding Anniversary of your parents? Are you getting married soon? All moments need to be elevated to the next level– and what a better way to ease your event planning than to hire an event planner?
What Is An Event Planner?
An event planner is a professional who will help you with the tasks involved in planning your event such as picking the theme, suppliers, the venue and all other things attributed to making an event a success.
- Save Your Time And Energy
For example, it takes an average of 250 hours to plan a wedding– and that’s just the simple kind of wedding. What if your company needs you to contact 500 potential investors? While the planning process is easy at first, you have to understand that along the way, there will be mishaps and you might not be able to fully focus on the planning. It is also an energy draining in the sense that you cannot control some things that might happen. You might even forget to invite some people!
- Finding The Right Vendor
A professional who has many valuable contacts developed through the years already knows people who can deliver. A planner knows which vendors are right for you fitting both your style and budget.
- Budget Management
The event planner can help create, organize, and manage your budget. All locations, vendors, and details will be added to the sheet, and percentages will be created based on your interest towards each vendor. From your total budget, the planner will only then be able to suggest different vendors.
- Save Your Money
A planner will save you time planning your big day. In addition to that, a planner has the time to shop around in order to find you the best prices, ultimately saving you money on your overall budget.
- Lessen The Stress
If you are the type of person who get stressed easily, hiring a planner is like having your own personal secretary: this event planner will be on top of all details, can have scheduled meetings planned out for you up until the day of your event. He will also remind you of vendor payments, and the important dates.
- Keep Everything Organized
An event planner will help plan your day by developing an itinerary specific to your needs. This “run sheet” will be coordinated with all your vendors on the day of the event.
- Liability Is Key
Your planner should have the educational background to attest to his credibility. Event planning schools give off accomplishment certificates to successful students. What event planning schools teach include protecting their clients yourself, the event and the payments.
- Sit Back, And Enjoy
With nothing to worry about, you can just relax and enjoy the event.
