Although many people think that an event planner is an expensive luxury, the truth is that a qualified planner can help a host save money while creating a memorable event. As party planners frequently have long-standing relationships with vendors, planners can offer the same services for less, often saving the host more than 20 percent. Similarly, the extensive contact list of a party planner can provide the host with access to top-quality decorators, entertainers, and other professionals.
Additionally, a party planner's professional experience means that he or she can often organize an event more efficiently and in less time than the host could. A planner has often handled multiple types of the same event, which lets him or her draw from detailed firsthand knowledge and avoid “beginner” mistakes. Similarly, on the day of the event, a party planner can expertly deal with the unexpected and solve problems without taking the host's attention away from his or her guests.
