A professional event planner is an expert at helping make the day go smoothly with a sharp eye for what can go wrong and heading off any disasters before they occur. Is the bartender running low on ice? The DJ not in sync with your choice of dance music? Is the photographer taking enough pictures of his family?
No worries. Not only can they take care of any unexpected details before, during, and after your big event, in the long run they can save you big money by working within your budget, and providing valuable advice before you sign a contract with a reception hall, caterer or other outside vendor.
In fact, they often can be so indispensable that party hosts new to hiring event planners later can't imagine how they ever did without them!
