You know the holiday season is here when you start receiving more than the usual invitations for birthdays,weddings and end of year parties and maybe even invitations for Christmas .
If you are hosting any of these celebrations and are planning on doing everything from scratch,you may wan to reduce your stress and anxiety levels by hiring a planner-an event planner.
Hiring an event planner might seem like a luxury but you may be surprised by how much they can reduce the anxiety that comes with event planning .
On this post we thought we might give you 5 great reasons why you might need an event planner this holiday season.
1.Saves you time
A good event planner is a pro at getting things done efficiently and on time.
They will save you the time spent on looking for vendors and suppliers because along with their experience they have with them a network of trusted suppliers and vendors that they have worked with,people they know can deliver on what you need for your event.
And just incase anything unexpected happens,then an event planner will always have plan A,B,C ad infinitum.
2.Saves you money
In my time planning events ,I have found out that there is always room for negotiations and what gives an event planner leeway as well as an edge is their ability to negotiate,they can get you discounts on rack rates and this is because of the relationships they have developed over time with various suppliers and vendors.
It is easier to discuss discounts with people you have had previous business dealing with than with total strangers,leverage on these relationships event planners have when thinking of holding an event.
3.You will get the right people doing the right job
Sometimes it is very difficult to gauge a vendors or suppliers ability to get the job done if you have no experience of having worked with them before.
An event planner due to their diverse network as well as experience with vendors will point you in the right direction on whom you need on your team in order to pull of a successful event.
4.You will have a more successful event
Event planners thrive on details-the little details that everyone else overlooks is what planners get their adrenaline rushes from.Ensuring every little thing is in place and imagining all the possible things that could go wrong and ensuring contingency plans are in place is what makes for a successful event.
As the host of the event,you may not have all the time to worry about all the nitty gritty details of your event,let an event planner do the worrying for you and ensure your event is successful.
5.You can enjoy the event
There is nothing like hosting a great event and you cannot enjoy it because you are busy ensuring that behind the scenes everything flows smoothly.You event forget to eat because you are busy handling all the event details by yourself you have no time to be a great host.
It would be great to have someone that thrives on adrenaline and the little details handle all the anxiety and stress for you,right?
