Party planning can be a monumental task. What begins as excitement and fun as one considers the possibility of planning the party that they would love to attend quickly becomes the cause of much pressure and stress. Face it, if party planning were simple there would be many more parties and there wouldn’t be a whole business sector devoted to party planners.
It is possible to plan and experience less stress and still enjoy the process of party planning. Professional event planners have many suggestions as to how to accomplish a successful party and the main one is to realize your budget for the party and to stick to it. Nothing will cause more stress than seeing the budget whirl out of control.
Other suggestions are to consider what tasks you may need help with and to rank them by importance to the party and learn to delegate. If you are using a facility for your event the manager in charge of leasing the facility may be willing to take on some tasks for you such as working to ensure vendors have access to the area when needed as well as requirements are met for each of them. Assigning just a few tasks away can help you. Remember that it is better to assign tasks to dependable people and that though a facility manager may say “No”, it doesn’t hurt to ask. A professional will be much more prepared to handle responsibilities than a friend who would prefer to be getting ready for the festivities an hour before the event than opening up the door of the room to allow a vendor to set up.
Also, consider employing a party or event planner to handle tasks on the day of the party. If your budget allows it then hire one on the first day. You can interact as much or as little as you choose in the planning. If your budget is more limited consider hiring someone to handle the last 48 to 24 hours of the event. Not all planners will take on the assignment but there will be some that will. When you do find someone, it will allow you the ability to enjoy your own party and give more attention to your guests.
Because event planners have such expensive networks their involvement in your party can often involve discounts from venders not available to regular consumers. So you may end up saving a considerable amount of money making the cost of a planner less than it initially appears.
The event planners often have access to venues that consumers don’t or are completely unaware of that would be great for your party location. Florists, caterers, equipment renters, photographers, and bands will be familiar to event planners and they can recommend professional and competent vendors for your event. Should a problem arise the vendor has more to lose if they fall out of favor with an event planner than a consumer, so problems are usually solved and corrected quickly when a professional is at the helm of your party planning.
Planners are of course there to assist you in having the party you were first excited about when the vision materialized, whether it is a more intimate celebration with friends or a more lavish affair. Anniversaries, birthdays, wedding receptions, and celebrations of all types are possible for anyone to plan but having a professional event planner can help make sure the smallest detail is attended to and that you enjoy the event as much as your guest.
