We feel it is important to share some commonly asked questions in an attempt to clear up any misconceptions or confusion about Event Planners. Hopefully, this will help to dispel any myths and shed light on the benefits of our services.
Question: What exactly does the job of an Event Planner entail?
Answer: The job of an Event Planner is quite extensive. We assist with all aspects of the planning process beginning with the overall event budget, event theme and design, locating the venue, securing vendors (caterer, florist, entertainment, etc) as well as the variety of permits required, organizing guest lists/invitations, arrange for transportation to and from event, give etiquette advice, coordinate activities of event personnel and supervise at the event site. We are equipped to handle any and every aspect of a given event.
Question: When I hear of an Event Planner, I always picture them working only on elaborate weddings for the rich and famous. How much of this is true?
The notion that Event Planners are solely for the rich and famous is simply untrue. We hear about planners in the media in connection with extravagant events and think it only applies to a certain population, which is a misconception. Our prices are affordable and we provide significant benefits to individuals across the board. With the high demands placed on working professionals today, time is scarce and our services are greatly sought after from people from all walks of life.
Question: With all of the online resources available, why do I need an Event Planner?
The wealth of information and planning resources available is wonderful and highly encouraged, however, actually organizing all aspects of the event and putting the countless details together effectively can be quite daunting, not to mention highly stressful, especially to the already busy individual. The Event Planner, being an expert in the field, provides a great deal of assistance and guidance in organizing and putting all the details together to create an event that often times exceeds expectations. In addition, our contacts and strong relationships with reputable professionals in the industry (caterers, florists, musicians, etc) give us a great deal of negotiating strength which results in saving you money on the overall event!
Question: I would really like the help of an event planner, but I’m afraid she will completely take over everything and I’ll be left out and unable to make any decisions regarding my own wedding.
The role of the Event Planner is not to take over the planning process, leaving you disconnected and in the dark. On the contrary, you are the primary decision maker, consistently in control of the entire planning process. As a knowledgeable professional, we offer assistance and guidance in the areas you request and are here to help simplify your life.
