For many years, hiring an event or wedding planner was only affordable for the very high end clientele. Most people felt that they could run the event themselves. Times have changed because the costs and complexity of planning any event, but most especially weddings, have many people turning to an event planner. An event professional not only saves time and emotional stress, but actually saves money. This is possible because:
What is your time worth? Think about how much you earn hourly then how many hours it will take you to plan this event. Let’s face it, we’re all busy with jobs, school, friends and family. Hiring a planner can cut down on the time consuming research needed to insure you are hiring the best vendors. Planning an event from out-of-state is another example of how we can support your needs. A local event planner knows the best vendors in the area and can represent you locally. Therefore, the event planner will take them far less time to gather the information you need to make your decisions.
