Top Reasons to use an Event Planner
I have wanted to work as a Event Planner for as long as I can remember! When I was a kid, I would create parties, just so I could plan and organize all the details. I have worn many hats in my years, but owning my own business and working to create unforgettable events is what I am passionate about! I read a post yesterday on Facebook that said that being an event planner was ranked as one of the top most stressful careers to have. I agree, planning events, weddings, etc… is stressful, but for me, I thrive in the chaos!
I have worked in some form of event planning for many years! I love to plan and execute all type of events, but I LOVE weddings! I meet so many different types of clients, and really enjoy helping them bring their vision to fruition.
I have realized that many are under the misconception that they can’t afford a planner, or that they just don’t need an expert around. I can tell you from experience, that I have handled many emergencies at events. I could share many entertaining stories on how if it wasn’t for myself and the team of experts that I work with… the events would have been disastrous!
So…here are some top reasons to consider using a professional event planner:
1. You should enjoy every moment of planning your wedding and the “big day!”
Your Wedding Day is by far one of the most important days in your life! Why add any stress to this all important day? Your planner can execute all of the details, handle all of the vendors, and professionally handle any problems that can easily surface! You need to be enjoying your friends, family and having the BEST DAY EVER! Many planners, including myself, will create a custom package to reflect your budget and your specific needs.
2. You are busy!
More than likely you have a job, and working every day is enough without all of the planning and details that come along with a wedding! Most couples are not readily available to make multiple meetings and phone calls that are necessary in terms of planning the details of the wedding. This is what planners do! We will set up meetings that are accommodating to your schedule. This brings me to my next point:
3. We know the best vendors!
As a planner, I know the “best of the best”! In the event industry you know who provides the best service at the best value! This can save you time and money. As a planner, I can negotiate for you, set up tastings with caterers, meetings with the florists, photographers, etc. It is my job to bring you the best!
4. I love it!
I don’t know many people who can honestly say that they LOVE what they do, and that they are PASSIONATE about it! It is exciting to meet couples and be come apart of their story and their memories! At the end of the day, when the couple is married, and they are smiling and happy…that is why I love it! Being included in such a special time of their life is so gratifying!
5. You are in good hands!
Planning a wedding is like taking on another part-time job! Let us take care of all the details, down to the minute you say, ” I DO!” This is my job! Contact HoneyBee’s Events, and we will put the “buzz” in your big day!
