Wedding come up? 50th Anniversary Celebration? Big Birthday Bash? Whatever the special occasion one thing is for certain; planning a sophisticated event and coordinating all the details and things that have to happen is no easy task. That’s why you need to hire an event planner and here’s how to find a good event planner
You might think that hiring an event planner isn’t within your budget but you couldn’t be more wrong. The time you’ll save is worth a lot of money, and with an event planner you are going to save a lot of time and you’ll even keep your sanity. You’ll put your mind at ease knowing you don’t have the burden of managing all the details for your special event. You’ll just need to decide what type of planner you want.
A good event planner is a pro at planning events. That’s what they do. You’ll want to choose an event planner that is an expert in the type of event you are planning. So if your special event is a wedding hire a wedding planner. You want the event to be unforgettable and a qualified planner will do just that for you.
You’ll need to decide whether you want a planner that simply provides guidance in a passive manner or who takes charge of the entire event. A full-service planner will oversee everything from the budget to the coordinating, to hiring the vendors, to being on site to supervise the event. A passive planner will work with you and give you guidance, but at the end of the day, you will still be in charge of hiring vendors and supervising the event.
You should get several quotes from several different event planners. That way you can compare prices. Be sure to ask lots of questions so you know what you are comparing and always get your quotes in writing. You also need to find out what the fee structure is. The final payment should occur after the event is over.
Meeting with the planner is also important. Your personalities need to mesh and you need to feel comfortable with the planner. If the planner has a totally different vision of what’s fun and what’s a good event, he or she isn’t a planner for you.
A good event planner will ask you lots of questions and listen to you until they understand exactly what you are looking for. You should also ask for some recent references and be sure to contact them to see how others feel about the planner.
If you decide to hire an event planner you won’t be disappointed. Instead of stressing about your special event, you’ll be looking forward to it with anticipation knowing everyone’s going to have a great time that’s truly memorable.
