You should get several quotes from several different event planners. That way you can compare prices. Be sure to ask lots of questions so you know what you are comparing and always get your quotes in writing. You also need to find out what the fee structure is. The final payment should occur after the event is over.
Meeting with the planner is also important. Your personalities need to mesh and you need to feel comfortable with the planner. If the planner has a totally different vision of what’s fun and what’s a good event, he or she isn’t the planner for you.
A good event planner will ask you lots of questions and listen to you until they understand exactly what you are looking for. You should also ask for some recent references and be sure to contact them to see how others feel about the planner.
If you decide to hire an event planner you won’t be disappointed. Instead of stressing about your special event, you’ll be looking forward to it with anticipation knowing everyone’s going to have a great time that’s truly memorable!
