22 May Why Hire an Event Planner
Why Hire an Event Planner
Let’s be real here, planning a wedding is extremely hard and there is no chance that you
can complete everything on your own. So why not hire an expert who CAN complete
everything and help you! Instead of worrying about how you’re going to do this on top of
your full time job, professional help is the best way to go. It will bring you input and tips
on how to save money, be organized, stay stress free, and know if you ended up
missing something important that could make or break your event. They also have
connections and skills to communicate with vendors and know which ones are best.
Also, nobody wants that feeling that they messed up on something or forgot to tell the
caterer about how you wanted a cake, but forgot because it was the last thing on your
1. A planner can help coordinate your entire day
Their job is to make your special day exactly as you wish for it to be. They have
been doing this for quite some time so they know exactly how to assist you. Finding the
right venue is one part of the process that may or may not be as difficult, especially if
you already have one specific place in mind, but all the other details can help be
assisted with an event planner. There are so many specific parts to planning an event,
especially a wedding and missing one little thing can make you upset or feeling a way
where you had wished you could have fixed it when it’s too late. This is why a planner
understands and knows every aspect of an event and will thoroughly plan/check off what
is done and what is needed.
2. They will keep things stress free
Planning a huge party can be a stressful task especially if you lack prior
experience in planning an event. This is typically the case if you are looking to invite a
large amount of people and having to look into a number of areas to ensure that your
party progresses smoothly. With hiring an event planner, we can lighten the burden and
anxiety of all the major and minor details when planning for your party. Knowing that an
expert is helping you to plan and make sure everything gets done early and efficiently, it
will make you feel 10 times better about the situation and it will result with more free time
and less stressin.
3. They have the connects with vendors
Not only are they good at getting in contact with different vendors from all over,
but they are also pros at negotiating. Most people assume that hiring an event planner
will add another bill to their wedding budget when in reality, it will help with money. With
negotiating skills, they can get to a mutual contract with you and the vendor. As for
discounts, sometimes they don’t appear on paper so for example, if you don’t like what
the vendor has given you, event planners can implement their skills to get you exactly
what you what without an extra charge from the vendor. Vendors aim to please the event
planner because they are the ones that keep business coming back to them.
Not saying that you can’t be organized with planning on your own, but this is
what an event planner is hired to do. They have the time to organize each specific piece
that is planned and every detail of the event to a tee. They will know what it missing and
what could be tweaked when putting everything together. They will also let you be as
involved and uninvolved as you would like to be, which means that if there is a specific
part of planning that drives you up the wall, your event planner will be flexible and take
control of that aspect so that you do not feel overwhelmed.
5. They will know what to NOT do
If you are not an expert, you might think that you know all the tricks to what you
should plan, but even the little things can slip through the cracks. An event planner will
know if you are spending too much money and overpaying for a service that could be
less costly. In that case, the planner will tell you that is what NOT to choose and will
lead you to a different service that is exactly the same as what you wanted, but better.
This will also be helpful with choosing the vendor, party favors, caterer, invitations, DJ,
and every single piece added to this event will be done the right way. If it has bad
reviews and people have not suggested it, the planner will tell you so that you can
rethink about what/where you want to invest your money in.
6. Corresponding with the theme
If you aren’t sure what designs and special details to have at your wedding to go
with the theme, an expert will direct you and give you ideas as to what will relate to the
theme and what does not match up. For example, if you are having a luau themed
party, having winter colors of different shades of white blue and grey, would not relate to
the theme. They will be honest with you, and tell you what to change to make everything
look the best that it can. Seeing something during your event that does not correspond
to the theme will look funky and your guests will notice, so to make sure that this
problem does not arise, a party planner will know exactly what will go along with your
When choosing an event planner, make sure that they actually know what they are
talking about and that they have experience from planning previous weddings before.
You do not want to hire someone and then realize that they only helped with a small
wedding knowing that yours is huge. Or if they never have helped out with a Winter
themed wedding and that is the theme of yours! In this case, they won’t know exactly
what to do and you can try to find someone who does have this experience.
