Why hire an Event Planner?
An Event Planner or Wedding Consultant can be a very wise investment for one of the most important days of your life. Every bride dreams of the perfect wedding…a day in which everything runs smoothly, nothing goes wrong, and everyone remembers what to do. There are so many small details that need your attention. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have someone to assist you in planning your perfect day! Planners/Consultants have a network of vendors in the area, so they are able to save you time and money.
Role of Event Planner
The Event Planners job is to implement the bride’s ideas. No matter how large or small of a wedding or budget, a consultant can assist with one simple detail or orchestrate the entire event. They have many roles: Etiquette expert, creative planner, coordinator, mediator, business manager, messenger, and even supply a shoulder to cry on. The actual investment you make will depend on the consultants form of billing. An hourly rate may be set for specific duties, a flat fee may be set for the entire planning of a wedding, or a percentage of the total wedding bill may be assessed. Establish up front the type of payment schedule that is agreeable to both parties.
