Or for that matter, how much is your guest of honour’s happiness worth?
Planning an event may be something that you really want to do and wouldn’t give up because you know exactly how everything needs to be, to be perfect. That’s absolutely reasonable; but how are you to enjoy all the hard work you put into planning an event if you’re stressing out on the day-of, making sure appetizers are prepared and go out on time; ensuring everyone’s got a drink in hand and there are garbage and recycle bins where they’re supposed to be? Are the kids being entertained or are they destroying things? Has all the food come out yet? Are there enough chairs for everyone? Does the DJ have the right play (and DO NOT play) list? Is everyone having a good time? Am I forgetting something???
Fret not, my friends. There IS help, and it comes in the form of…..get ready for it…. an Event Planner! Yes, an Event Planner can make sure your day runs smoothly, but not necessarily plan your event.
Day-of event management is just one of the services that Carpe Diem Events offers to help eliminate the stress that inevitably falls on the party planner, especially if they’re also a guest at said party. In a nutshell, you and I meet ahead of time to familiarize myself with all the details of your party. You tell me how you want things to run and I make it go.
When you look back at your event through your photos and videos, you don’t want your only memories to be that of you stressing out and not having fun.
I will make sure that all the food and drinks are flowing and plentiful; I’ll make sure the DJ has the proper playlists and keeps the crowd grooving; I’ll ensure the kids are entertained and not running amuck; I’ll make sure the Photographer/Videographer is on schedule to capture every magical moment. Most of all, I’ll make sure everyone’s having a blast – even you!
With the help of an Event Planner, not only will you have a great time, but your guests will remember and talk about the perfection of your event for years to come! Way to go, you!
So sit back and relax – or get up and dance!!! Just enjoy yourself and let me worry about the little things.
