10 Reasons You Should Hire a Wedding Planner – Essential Tips – Yorkville Special Events

Posted by on May 12, 2014 in Uncategorized |

A Special Event planner could just be the best thing you spend money on. Here’s are my top ten reasons: Reason #1. You deserve everything to be perfect on your big day. It takes a lot of time and hard work to pull a special event together perfectly. An event planner like myself has organized special events a hundred times, and with practice comes perfection. I know the right people to talk to, how to get the best prices, what should (and shouldn’t) be in a contract, and how to ensure that every single detail is prepared for your big day. Reason #2. You’re not very good at sticking to a budget. Money is one of the hardest aspects of planning your special event. Who’s paying, how much, when is your bill due and how do you ensure you don’t spend too much of it? A special event planner is like a financial adviser or an accountant who specialises in all different types of event (corporate, weddings, bar/ batmitzvah). I know how much things should cost, roughly what percentage of your budget will be spent in each area, whether, and when payments will need to be made in order to secure services or products. Reason #3. Your special event planning experience should be enjoyable, not stressful. Doesnt matter the type of event your planning, you should enjoy every moment of it. Most importantly, you do not want to turn into a neurotic person at the end of it all stressing about how much work there is to be done. Since it’s my job, a special evetn planner has time and the skills to deal with everything on your behalf. All you have to worry about is taking care of business and life.   Reason #4. You don’t want to spend hours finding suppliers and trying to figure out who is trustworthy. It’s daunting to know how many suppliers are out there (and how many people it takes to make a wedding a success). Knowing who to trust and who is right for you is one of the hardest tasks of planning an event. Once you find a great special event planner however, the rest is much easier. I can recommend suppliers I have worked with before and know how to get the best prices, and the best results, from them. “Even if I have to use a new supplier, I know how to find the best one for your style and price.” Reason #5. You don’t want to worry about forgetting to plan or pay for something. Special Event checklists can be pages long, so it’s no surprise if you’re worried about forgetting something. Luckily a Yorkville Special Events knows what needs to be done like the back of our hand! I will keep track of all your deadlines and remind you when things need to be done and...
