Some people are on the fence about whether or not to hire an event planner. Well, I am here to tell you that there is no reason you shouldn't hire one! From the food to those last minute touch-ups, event planners have the knowledge and experience to help you plan the event of your dreams.
1. You will save money.
This is the opposite of what most people think but the truth is that you will save money. Once you have established a budget with your event planner they stick to it, or even stay under it, it's their job. Along with that, all the financial aspects will be laid out for you…there will be no hidden fees from the venue, or costs that you forgot about.
2. Planners have strong vendor relationships.
Since your event planner has been in business for years, they have established strong relationships with vendors. They understand what the vendor is looking for and what you are looking for and they act as a liaison between the two parties. Along with that, there are more and more venues that are starting to require the use of event planners because they are knowledgable and experienced.
3. You will save time.
We all know there is not enough time during the day to get everything done, especially when you are planning an event. Good news is, if you hire an event planner you won't have to worry about time, it is their job to plan the event and you can relax and let them take over.
4. Stress less.
We have all met or heard of bridezilla…she more than likely became a bridezilla because she was so stressed out when it came to planning her wedding. An event planner is here to take all the stress off your shoulders. Any mistakes or mis-haps during the process are handled by your planner, you can be stress free!
5. Enjoy the process.
Whatever event you're planning whether it be a wedding, fundraiser, or corporate party…you can sit back and enjoy the process. The event planner is there to take care of all the necessities and let you enjoy the experience. For example, if a bride is too stressed and overworked from planning her wedding she will look back and see that as a negative experience. Planners are able to take over and let YOU enjoy YOUR event.
