A question we're asked on a regular basis is "Why should I use an event or wedding planner?". These events may be weddings, they may be birthdays and are probably going to be some the most important times in some peoples lives. So we understand that handing the responsibility to someone else can be a scary time. But using a business like ours has a number of benefits....
Contrary to popular belief, hiring a professional event planner can save you large amounts of money in proportion to the size of your event. Event planners have a network of suppliers and vendors that they deal with on a regular basis. This can attract a number of discounts in your payments. They also have good negotiation skills, that is, they are able to negotiate a mutually beneficial contract.
You can relax, knowing fully well that experts have lifted the burden of organising off your shoulders. Relieving clients of stress is one of the most important benefits of hiring an event planner. They handle all the headaches that come with organising events, leaving you to enjoy the party without worrying about ‘things that could go wrong’.
Proper organisation is a key factor in ensuring the success of any event. This is another reason why you should hire a professional event planner. Being professionals, they have a lot of experience in organising and can ensure that your event runs smoothly without any hitch.
Planning of events by an inexperienced person, is definitely going to be more time consuming when compared to hiring the services of an event planner. This is basically because, as professionals, they don’t need to start running around looking for trustworthy suppliers and vendors. They have these contacts at their fingertips. Event planners work with the time frame you give them and deliver as at when due.
Hiring an event planner gives you the option of not being involved in the planning. Some people prefer to just tell the professionals their preferences for the event, and leave them to do the work. Others like to know the details of the step by step planning of the event. Basically, when you have an event planner, you can be as involved or as uninvolved as you like.
Professional event planners know how much little things count. They cover the tiniest details of your event, even the ones you may overlook. They give you that ‘perfect’ event that leaves a lasting impression in the minds of your guests.
For professionals, creativity is necessary. If an inexperienced person should organize your event, chances are you might not get that unique theme. The theme of an event makes it memorable in the minds of the attendees. Experts do not settle for just any kind of theme, they think of ways to provide value to their clients.
Unforeseen circumstances cannot be completely disregarded. No matter the amount of planning, there’s always a chance that something could go wrong. Professionals can handle the pressure. They are skilled at thinking on their feet and can execute ‘plan B’ in time. A planner’s quick thinking can help turn a potential disaster into a positive experience.
We know that feeling when after going through a lot of stress to plan an event, you don’t get to enjoy it because you’re too busy moving all over the place, ensuring everything is in order and the event runs smoothly. Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. When you hire an event planner, you can relax and enjoy the event like every other guest, knowing fully well that everything is being taken care of. This way, you can have beautiful memories of your events, rather than memories of stress, because you were too busy running around.
