The world has changed over the years. We have a population full of incredible DIYers. Pinterest and the web are at our hands any time we want it, and we are only moments away from millions of amazing ideas and sometimes very easy instructions.
It's a DIYer's dream come true!
But when is a DIYer supposed to step away and let someone else handle things?
The answer will be different for everyone, and for some, it may be a difficult decision to make since it involves the budget. We'd like to help you narrow it down with some great info on what Event Planners like Sulair Events do to make it all worthwhile.
Many Event Planners will have a variety of packages to choose from to help accommodate budgets and event styles, and to make their services available to many. You can hire a planner that will walk you through every step of the way, or you can hire them as a "Day-Of" consultant to come in during the final moments and just take care of the event day stresses and coordination.
An Event Planner will add cost to your budget, but many may have great ideas and industry secrets that could help you save a bit in other areas.
Event Planners do this for a living; they are knowledgable in fields like Cakes/Pastries, Meal Planning, Seating, Favors, Accommodations, Out of Town Guests, Transportation... etc. You could spend 10 hours on Pinterest to look for ideas for your event (Let's be honest.. no one goes in and out of Pinterest without getting sucked in to the craft vortex!) or you could send an email to your Planner with a list of your ideas and questions; and in a bit, you'd have solutions and choices.
What it all comes down to is time. Do you have the time to sort through and find ideas for your event, decorations, favors, invitations...? Or would it work out better for you to tell someone about your likes, your favorite styles, your ideas; and then get presented with narrowed down choices for all aspects of your event? Saving that time could help save your sanity!
Still want to DIY?
If you have the time, are crafty, and truly enjoy being a part of the preparation, then GO FOR IT!!! Even for the DIYer, a "Day Of" coordinator can be set up to come in during the last few weeks to help relieve the stresses and insanity that happen the day of the Event; so you can kick back and revel in each of your accomplishments!
