Q. Is hiring an Event Planner worth it?
Absolutely! Many people assume that hiring an event planner means wasted money, but I pride itself on providing quality service in events. By having me there by your side to manage all the details of your events, it will save you time, stress and money in the long run.
Q. How many hours are you on site the day of the event?
On the day of the event I will arrive as early as needed to set up all items, ensure I meet the very first vendor delivering or setting up to the last, and will stay after the last guest leaves to ensure all clean up has been taken care of and vendors items are squared away for pickup. A couple weeks prior to your event, you will get an in-depth timeline which will outline what time we will be arriving.
Q. Will I be active in the planning of my event?
Of course. An event consultant acts as a team member and confidant to assist you in planning the perfect event. In your initial meeting, you can communicate the level of participation you wish to have in the process.
Q. When is it too late to hire a day of coordinator?
It is never too late for me to be your day of coordinator as long as I have the availability!
Q. Many event planners only work with exclusive vendors. If I hire you, does that mean that I can’t use the ideas and vendors that I already had in mind?
While I have a list of esteemed vendors, I have no problem with working with the ones that you already have in mind.
Q. For the day of the event, will you be willing to oversee the entire event by supervising vendors, troubleshooting emergencies, and soothing nerves?
Absolutely! My job is to allow you to relax on that day. I will serve as a liaison between you and vendors and handle all the details of making your event run smoothly. I am calm, flexible and roll with the punches.
Q. What are some general tips or advice that you often give to your clients to help them in their planning?
- Plan ahead
- Develop a realistic budget
- Make out your wish list – things that you want to have at your event – certain flowers, a particular DJ, a fun theme, etc
- Select an event planner so that you can focus on other parts of the celebration – determining your guest list, promoting your event, etc
- This is NOT the time to be stressed about such a fun occasion. We are here to help guide our clients so that they can also embrace the event
Q. What type of events do you specialize in planning?
I specialize in the planning of company, non-profit and social events. This includes holiday parties, conferences, workshops, pop-ups, employee appreciation events, fundraisers, galas, weddings, birthday parties, bridal showers and more! Whether you are planning a small gathering of 10 people or the social event of the season with hundreds of people, I have fresh and creative approach to bring your dreams to a reality.
Q. Do you charge separately for your various event services?
Some of my services come standard, others are priced separately. In order to get an idea of what your event will cost, contact me to speak and get a free estimate based on your individual needs.
