Party planning is a lot of fun, and many people take pride in their ability to juggle all of the moving parts that a successful event requires. At the same time, those moving parts are exactly the reason many people consider party planning to be overwhelming. You can power through a lot of things, but when should you delegate tasks to friends, family, caterers, servers, or party planners? Here are our top tips to know whether it’s time to ask for help.

 

WHEN YOU CAN’T FIND EXTRA TIME IN YOUR SCHEDULE TO PLAN:

Depending on how all-out you go, count on adding a minimum of 24 hours to your regularly scheduled routine. That’s an entire extra day, at the least, added to your work or free-time, depending on the event. It’s our professional event-staffing-experience opinion that the Number One Most Underestimated Aspect of Party Planning is the amount of time it takes. In addition to choosing a theme, ordering a cake, and sending out invitations, you also have to configure the guest list, choose a location, decide whether to cater or prepare food yourself, get a bar going, design invitations and keep track of rsvp’s, answer endless questions, and decorate. And get dressed, wait for the babysitter, and get out the door on time yourself.

WHEN YOU WANT A PROFESSIONAL EVENT AND YOUR PARTY PLANNING EXPERIENCE LIVES ONLINE

Even the craftiest of people don’t necessarily have an eye for interior design, and they aren’t likely to have extensive experience planning foot traffic, natural flow, and knowing which licenses you need to have on hand for any given event. Event planners come equipped with professional design skills as well as organization. If you want your corporate Christmas party, charity event, or awards banquet to look professional, hiring professionals to organize, cater, and serve your guests will provide exactly the atmosphere you want while saving you from stress. Professionals know all the tips and tricks to pulling off an event that can’t be found online. No need to worry if red wine gets spilled on white linen, if a guest forgot to mention their shellfish allergy, whether your bartenders are Smart Serve certified, or that your decorations look cheap.

 

WHEN YOU HAVE A STRICT BUDGET:

As you read this blog post you may see dollar signs dancing around while thinking, “I can do this cheaper myself.” Hiring professionals will save you money, particularly if you’re throwing a corporate party. Event planners will stick to your budget with ease while maintaining a glossy finished party because they have partnerships with decorators, caterers and serving companies that will get you the best price without sacrifice. Need some glittery centerpieces? They probably have some in their storage unit. They’re also professional problem solvers! Anxious about seating charts? Dreaming of a gourmet meal on a fixed-price budget? Wondering whether it’s tacky to disallow children?  There’s an event planner for that! 

 

Put your wedding, your work Christmas party, your athletics banquet, your family reunion in the hands of trusted professionals and get the chance to maintain your regular routine, stay on budget, and actually enjoy the event yourself.
