It’s funny how events with the most significance can cause the most stress. Maybe it’s because you are so desperate to get it right. Wrestling with a tight budget, a never-ending guest list and so many logistics that your head may indeed explode. For most, these logistics are boring, and yet we often overlook the fact there are professionals out there who thrive doing it. 

Special events, especially weddings, are those times you need everything to be perfect. So you pour your heart into the planning of this event, yet you’re finding it difficult to enjoy the process because you are so stressed. Yielding to the idea of hiring an event planner can be difficult, however, it could be the way to have your cake and eat it too. An event planner’s goal is to relieve the stress and make sure everything goes off without a hitch. ‘Handing over the reigns to an expert means peace of mind for a well-orchestrated event,’ says Jane from Byron Bay Luxury Weddings.

If you have a corporate or business event that involves a strategic purpose and measurable goals that must be achieved and accounted for, an event planner in your corner is a smart move. Their role is to work with you to ensure that all key business objectives for the event are met. For example, it could be that you need to raise a certain amount of money for a fundraising event, or perhaps you need to re-brand a product or service for a client. Ms Jane Magnus says sometimes it is a false economy to think that not hiring an event planner will save you money. ‘There are many benefits to employing the services of a skilled wedding planner or event manager for your event. Some people think that employing a specialist means you’ll end up paying more, but in fact, having the right person on your team could mean quite the opposite.’

An event manager will save you time and money by bringing their expertise to the table. They will facilitate decisions on how your event would best be produced, and and on finding the right services for your budget and style. An experienced events expert means they come with a wealth of knowledge about the industry, and in particular, about how to get the right ducks in a row, especially when it comes to COVID Safe health regulations for instance. 

Time management, no stress, and objectives met is only the tip of the iceberg of why it is a good idea to hire an event planner.
