Reasons You Must Hire an Event Planner!

If you think event planners are only a privilege the rich can afford, think again. Well, an event planner could just be the best thing you spend your money on. Ofcourse you don’t want your D-day to be anything less than a dream come true! Read on to know why you must & should hire an event planner....

Reason #1. Everything has to be perfect on your big day!
It takes a lot of time and hard work to pull an event together perfectly. A wedding planner has organised a wedding a hundred times and with practice comes perfection. They know the right people to talk to, how to get the best prices, what should (and shouldn’t) be in a contract, and how to ensure that every single detail is best prepared for your big day.
Reason #2. Problem sticking to a budget? Here’s the solution.
Money is one of the hardest aspects of planning your wedding or any other event. Who’s paying, how much and for what? A planner is like a financial adviser who specialises in events. He gives you an idea on how much things should cost, roughly what percentage of your budget will be spent in each area like decor, flowers, lights, catering & what not!
Reason #3. The experience should be enjoyable, not stressful.
Whether your courtship is long or short, you should enjoy every moment of that special time with your family and your better half. Girls, you do not want to turn into a neurotic Bridezilla who can’t sleep, can’t eat, can’t work and is constantly stressing about how much work there is to be done. Since it’s their job, an event planner has time and the skills to deal with everything on your behalf. All you have to worry about is pampering yourself and enjoying your courtship period.
Reason #4. The nightmare of finding the suppliers!
It’s daunting to know how many suppliers are out there and how many people it takes to make an event a success. Once you find a great event planner however, the rest is much easier. They can recommend suppliers they’ve worked with before and know how to get the best prices, and the best results, from them. All you brides & grooms out there should only worry about your personal supplies- dress, shoes, accessories; a lot to do already!!
Reason #5. No more stress about forgetting to plan or pay for something.
Event checklists can be pages long, so it’s no surprise if you’re worried about forgetting something. Luckily a planner knows what needs to be done like the back of their hand! They will keep track of all your deadlines and remind you when things need to be done and decided on. Nothing will ever be missed, and there’s no danger that something won’t turn up on the day because of poor preparation.
Reason #6. Heaps of work to do!
Planning an event takes a lot of time, even more if you do everything yourself. Having a planner is like having a support whose sole responsibility is doing all the running around for your event.
Reason #7. An Event Planner is much more important than a Venue Co-ordinator.
You’ve already found your venue and you get on really well with the venue co-ordinator She’s great and has even given you a recommended list of suppliers that they work with. But keep in mind, that’s generally as far as her services extend. A planner goes beyond these tasks and can help you manage your budget, mediate disputes with your family, tell you what flowers are in season on your ceremony date, take you to meet the other suppliers, research prices, and anything else you wish for.
Reason #8. Need help making your vision a reality- You are at the right place.
No matter whether you know exactly what you want, have a vague idea, or no idea at all, a planner can help you define the look, style, mood, emotions and ambience that you want to create. They know the latest trending pertaining in the industry and can advise you perfectly. They can visualise what will work in your venue and know how to bring your desires and dreams to life for an auspicious occasion.
Reason #9. Struggling to meet the demands of your friends and family. Not anymore!
Does your family have a different idea of how your event should look? Many brides & grooms have to deal with a plethora of conflicting opinions from their friends and family about how the wedding should unfold and it can be hard to please everyone, not to mention stressful. A planner will find a mid-way to deal with your family’s expectations, show you the available options and can be relied upon to give you expert advice so you make an informed decision.
Reason #10. When a Destination Wedding is on the cards!
Planning a destination wedding has it’s pros, but it’s hard to organise suppliers that you’ve never met or imagine a space you’ve never seen in person. A wedding planner with experience in organising abroad and destination weddings has a trick or two up their sleeve for getting the job done the way you want. The truth is, planning an event takes a lot of time, energy and focus. Sure, some bits of it are fun and exciting, but then there’s the endless research, details to remember, payments to make and so on which aren’t so much fun but are very necessary. Using one of our event planners means you’re in control. It’s definitely your day, your way, but you have a specialist working on your behalf to do the legwork, reduce your stress and ensure every detail is your kind of perfect!
