Weddings & Events

Many people have the vision and, with the internet, the ability to get their dream event planned, but what they fail to plan is how. How are they going to make sure every detail is taken care of and be able to relax and enjoy it? The simple answer, you can't, not without the help of a Planner. 

In this economy everyone is on a tight budget and for those planning an event a Planner seems out of the question because they often come with the stigma of being expensive. While a Planner doesn't come without a cost, in most cases, the savings an experienced Planner can get you will cover the cost of the Planner. 

A Planner will relieve your stress and let you focus on the things you want to do, leaving the tedious details to the professional. There are a lot of fun things when planning an event and many clients like to be hands on in the planning process. It is a common misconception that when you hire a Planner you miss out on all the fun, when actually just the opposite is true. Planning the average wedding, for example, takes 150 to 200 hours for the professional Planner. For a full-time worker, that's like adding a part time job in to your already busy schedule. When you decide to take on the whole event you spend most of your time on the tedious, not so fun details. When you finally get around to the fun parts, you are burnt out and exhausted. Hiring a Planner will leave you to the fun parts right away, letting you enjoy the process and the event.

Hiring a Planner keeps you focused. With so many creative magazines, blogs and websites, like Pinterest, your to do list will expand exponentially. A Planner will be able to keep you focused on what will be best for your event. A Planner will also keep your budget in check, something many people have trouble handling.

And speaking of budgets, aside from helping you stick to your budget, a Planner can help you find vendors and materials to make your event your dream. Because Planners have worked with many vendors, each Planner has a go to list of vendors for every situation. These vendors have proven themselves to the Planner in quality service and pricing. There's no guess work for you.
