Have an upcoming event? Great, now what?
Today, we’re going to discuss why all of these details should be someone else’s problem. We’re going examine why you should hire an event planner, instead of doing everything yourself. I know what you're thinking... why should you bother spending money on a professional when you can just do the job yourself. Well, just a heads-up, doing so will save you A LOT of money.
1. Hiring an event planner can save you a ton of money
Most halfway decent events planners have strong working relationships with suppliers, vendors, and venue owners. Through these relationships, a quality planner will be able to receive a considerable discount; this is then passed on to whoever they are working for. Repeat after me... "I will save time and money."
2. Event planners make your events less risky
With an event planner, you don't have to worry about the late and stressful nights searching the internet for the perfect venue or vendors. Simply, put that burden on your event planner and focus more on what you're going to wear instead. Repeat after me... "I will save time and money."
3. Event planners help you execute faster
You’ll spend a great deal less time putting everything together, meaning you’ll have a great deal more time to spend on polish; more time to spend networking and making everybody feel welcome instead of running around like a madman making everything work. There’s also the small fact that an event planner tends to know what they’re doing. They know what works and what doesn’t, they know what people want, and they know how things need to be set up in order to avoid a catastrophe .Repeat after me... "I will save time and money (and my sanity)."
There’s nothing stopping you from running your own events, of course. Some people do tend to have a knack for it, while others no matter how much they want to, don’t have the budget to hire an event planner. At the same time, it’s still worth asking yourself whether or not you strictly need to do things on your own. Hiring an event planner instead of shouldering the burden yourself can—aside from preventing a few extra gray hairs—save you time and money; both of which can be spent on making things bigger, better, and more enjoyable for everyone involved.
