When you’re hosting your first event and trying to keep costs down, hiring an event planner might seem like an unnecessary expense. But it’s not. Here are seven surprising reasons to hire an event planner:
1. You save time
Why? Because there are details you don’t have to be bothered with. An event planner knows the ins and outs of your event.
2. You save money
You’d think because you have to pay the event planner, you’re spending more money, right? Not so. Once your planner knows what your budget is (and how strict you are about sticking to it), s/he can work with vendors to save you money on all kinds of things.
3. You’ll have a better looking event.
4. You’ll host your event at the right place.Where you should host your event – what city and where in the city – depends on the kind of event you’re hosting and what your goals are in the event. Your event planner will help you choose a venue that can actually help you meet your goals for your event.
5. You’ll eat.
6. You can breathe.When you’re planning an event, doing everything yourself is a very, very big job. And it gets stressful. As soon as you hire an event planner, you can breathe. You can step back, regroup, focus on the things you know the most about, and get a lot of work done.
