Top 10 Reasons to Hire an Event Planner

Congratulations! You have something wonderful to celebrate. It may be a wedding, a bar or bat mitzvah, anniversary, birthday or other special event.

Celebrating life’s special moments with family and friends is one of the greatest joys for many. So where do you start?

Reasons To Hire An Event Planner

Some people love planning all the details and others are completely overwhelmed with so many decisions to be made.

Many people have a vision, but just don’t have the time to research options with the demands of everyday life.

Planning an event on your own can be one of the most stressful things you’ll do – and that is where event planners can come to the rescue.

We asked event planning experts from across the country for the top reasons why you should hire an event planner for your upcoming celebration. This is what they said:

Why You Should Hire An Event Planner

  1. Save Time
  2. Save Money
  3. Reduce Stress
  4. Have More Fun
  5. Experience
  6. Process
  7. Smile More
  8. Personal Advocate
  9. Knowledge
  10. Creativity

Save Time

“A planner will cut down the time every single step in the planning process will take you. Their relationships and industry connections will save you hours and HOURS of researching, contacting vendors, going back and forth on details and thinking of those little things that you don’t know to ask. A good planner can also save you money by connecting you with the right vendors at the right price points, as well as provide special vendor-only discounts.”

Save Money

“Many times I am able to save my clients money and time because I know where to purchase things for a better price and I can negotiate with venues and other vendors on their behalf. Also, because I work with so many vendors I know which vendors will fit their budget and vision the best.”

Reduce Stress

“Working with a planner can save a family time, money, and a lot of extra stress. We love checklists, and will go over them thoroughly to make sure that the client will have everything they need for the celebration. We are prepared to handle many different situations as they arise during the planning process and the event itself. We think on our feet, think outside of the box, and make sure the client and their guests have a truly memorable celebration experience.”

Personal Advocate

“Events should totally represent the best of a couple or host, showcasing their personalities, experiences, and extraordinary bond to one another, therefore I provide oversight and execution while being my client’s personal advocate with their vendors.”

“Working with us, or someone like us, gives peace of mind to the couples. We know the industry, the best locations, we can generally access little “extras” (working with preferred vendors has its perks). We have knowledge of venues that the couple may not know about from using Google and we know the industry well.”

Shannon Mackenzie

“Planners help come up with creative solutions and present ideas you may have never thought of. They assist in any emergencies or last minute changes. My job is to create the most inviting atmosphere with the least amount of stress and create a memory that will last a lifetime. I think anybody can plan an event however it may not go as smoothly, or have the special little touches without a planner.”

While it’s never too late to hire a planner, and many offer “day of” services, all our event planning experts agreed that it’s better to bring them into the planning process as early as possible.

If you want to enjoy your celebration and not be stressed out about the details, hiring a planner is the best way to go.
