Event Planning

As your event planner I will serve as a mediator, a consultant, a sounding board, an organizer, an artisan and a financial adviser all rolled into one. Some of the tasks that I will be responsible for include:

·        Ordering the flowers, hiring a photographer, musician and other service providers for the event. It is the job of the event planner to deal with the various vendors and see that I can get the best possible rates from different vendors for my clients.

  • I have a great sense of fashion and this helps me to ensure that everything is tasteful and color coordinated for the event. I will be responsible for ensuring that the theme of the event is reflected in all aspects of the event, right from the design on the napkins, to the place settings, and the flowers. Everything should be in sync and it is my job to ensure that.
  • The event planner manages the money and ensures that the event goes according to budget.

 

   Our party planning services a lots you 10 hours of work. You can use these planning hours for whatever services you need including venue selection, menu chooses, phone meetings, set-up and breakdown.
