The Benefits of Having a Party Planner

Event Catering and Party Planning In The Bay Area

Whether your fiancée just popped the question and you’re looking for wedding catering in the Bay Area; or your startup is on the verge of having an IPO, and you need corporate catering in Silicon Valley, you may be under the impression that you need to do a lot of “stuff” yourself.

But hiring a party planner can be a huge positive. Let’s explore reasons why you should stay far away from the “DIY” (Do It Yourself) approach when planning a big event.

First of all, you will conserve time, money, and resources.

If you value your time and energy, you should lean on experts who have planned events like the one you want to put together. Once your planner knows what your budget is (and how strict you are about sticking to it) he/she can work with vendors to save you money on all kinds of things. There’s no need for you to be bothered with every single detail.

The event will go smoother and will look better.

You won’t have to stress about the venue, the flowers, the lighting, and the technical details. Professional party planners have coordinated hundreds of events and they know what to expect.

A great party planner knows others who can collaborate to produce an awesome event.

If you’re going to piece together the party yourself, you’re going to have to find individual vendors like videographers, florists, caterers, etc “by hand.” That can be a taxing experience! Professional event planners usually have “go to” teams they use to put on seamless events, minimizing drama, cost overruns, and unwelcome surprises.

Lastly, and most importantly, when you use an event planner, you can actually enjoy the event and “be there” for your guests.

If you’re throwing a big corporate event for key clients, you want to use the event to develop those relationships. If you’re getting married or throwing a family reunion or a 50th anniversary party for your parents, you likewise want to be able to eat, breathe, enjoy the event, and spend time with people you cherish.
