Here at Sequel Events we believe that professional planners are essential to putting on the perfect event. We speak from experience in planning our own events and from our passion to assist our clients in planning their event. So here are our 10 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Professional Planner:
1. Saving You Time
You may be short on time normally, so when there is a major event happening that you are the planner for, things can get a little hectic. In order to enjoy the planning process and have some peace in your life, hire an event planner! They are practiced time-savers and are always figuring out the most efficient and organized way to do things.
2. Saving You Money
You probably have a budget, tight or not, for your event. The best way to stay in budget and still get everything you want is to hire someone who has experience and can tell you very accurate estimates of the cost of everything. They can also find you the best quality of service for the best price. They will know when you might be getting close to going over budget and can find ways to avoid that and still give you the event you’ve dreamed of
3. Being Able to Breathe
Amidst the hustle and bustle of planning and preparing for an event it can be easy to forget to do some important things, like taking time for ourselves. Allow an event planner to take on the details and sometimes tedious work that goes along with this process and give you space to breathe…and eat…and sleep.
4. Working with Experience
We hire professionals to do many things in life, such as a real estate agent to find your dream home, plumbers to fix the pipes. hair dressers to fix our hair up nicely…you get the picture. So why not hire a professional to plan your event? Going into the planning process people sometimes assume that it will be rather simple to pull everything together, but then little details are missed and the big day ends up turning into a mad rush to the finish line. A professional planner does this for a living and they have your best interest in mind, so trust them to save you time, keep you under budget and over all help you to enjoy your event.
5. Hiring the Right Vendors
Professional planners have solid relationships built with the best vendors for your event. On your own it can be very difficult to find the right vendors for things such as catering, linens and florals (to name a few). How do you know that their quality of work is what you are looking for? Why go through ten different catering companies before finding the right one if you don’t have to? If you have a professional planner on your team then they can listen to your needs and provide you with a few vendors that are perfectly suited to you and your event.
6. A Seamless Day-Of
On the day of your big event would you like to enjoy seeing everything come together flawlessly, be able to socialize with your guests and not worry about the little details? Of course you would, and with a professional planner that is what will happen! You will have a person in your corner who knows the ins and outs of your event and can see any bumps in the road before they even appear. A planner will look at the event in the months leading up to it and use their imagination to envision anything that could go wrong. Then they will make sure that they have a safety net in place for all of those possibilities. That will allow you to sit back, relax, and have a wonderful time.
7. Creativity at Your Fingertips
Do you have some great ideas, but don’t now how to make them happen? Or do you need some help coming up with ways to make your event achieve the ‘wow-factor’? Professional Planners are there to help you create a one-of-a-kind event and make your dreams for it tangible. They are a creative tool right at your fingertips and are full of unique and innovative ideas!
8. A Built-In Mediator
During the planning of an event there can be many different opinions involved. A professional planner can be very helpful when it comes to navigating through all the opinions and helping to make the right decision. They will be your mediator and help to keep everyone satisfied in the end!
9. Point of Contact
There are many people involved in the happenings of an event. Nearing the day-of, you may have a question or an alteration but aren’t sure who to talk to. A Professional Planner can be the one person you go to for all of your questions and then they can take it from there. Goodbye confusion! Goodbye misscommunication!
10. Creating a Timeline and Sticking to it
It is important to have a time-line for planning your event. With all the things that need to be done this can be a little overwhelming! A Professional Planner will create the time-line for you and make sure that everything follows it. This ensures that in the days leading up to your event you will not be stressed out and you will be able to look forward to the big day!
