Where is My Money Going?
Event planners/stylists are a great service to all of their clients. They help make the planning easy and attempt to stick to the budget. A stylist has to use all of their creative juices to keep everything on point. Their fees explain how hard they work and how great their customer service is 110% above the rest.
A platinum event planner goes out of their way for their clients. So, couples, CEO’s and concierge, where is your money going? It goes right into your exemplary service.
First of all, a great stylist never settles for less especially in the beginning. Most event planners ask for a deposit after their initial consultation. Yes, it costs money to work! This allows them to get things together and started immediately without fear. Most may charge 10% of their total fee which is pennies in the long run.
Secondly, while you are at the spa, on the golf course, or taking a nap, your event planner is on the internet, the blackberry scheduling appoints and swinging their felt tip pin at the venue manager, caterer and DJ. A million dollars does not cover the cost of a verbal fight with vendors! (Believe me, I know!) Event planners/stylists keeps you from getting stressed by handling it ALL!
Lastly, time is never an issue. If you have a planner that is available at your beck and call, it will cost time and money for them to drop the kids, drop the spouse, and run to you. A million dollars does not cover this either! Your money is going to all of the best places to get the job done. Does this mean you HAVE to hire a planner for your next event? YES! You are crazy to take on that stress by yourself.
Put your money where your event is and hire your planner today!
