Event planner needed for b'day party

$200

"It was a first for both of us but Asha brought her experience as a party, wedding and event planner to arranging a post-funeral celebration of life for my mum - and made it an unqualified success. I was so busy and stressed organising the funeral and going through my own grief that I can honestly say I could not have done it without her. I did not know the area and wasn't happy with any of my Google search results - but Asha found me six great venues including some, as requested, outside 'the usual suspects'. Even my challenging catering criteria was no problem. Asha's communication exceeded my expectations, she put in more hours than I thought she would and visited the venues personally. Literally all my extended family and my mother's friends praised and congratulated me. Honestly, I'll contact Asha again in a heartbeat to plan and organise any event."

Top Event Planning related questions

What is the role of an event planner?

An event planner will plan and organise all aspects of your event, including: schedules, styling, entertainment, lighting, catering, seating, vendors, and the venue. They’ll discuss your needs and do as much as possible to minimise your stress so you can enjoy your function. 

Is an event planner the same as an event manager?

Although there is some overlap between the two roles, event planners usually focus on pre-party tasks such as theming, venue, catering, invitations, and hiring. An event manager will make sure the event runs smoothly by overseeing the event and making sure any issues are fixed quickly.

What are some common events that require a professional event planner?

You can hire an event planner for any special occasion, such as: weddings, corporate functions, or milestone birthday parties. In fact, they can help with any event that needs to be planned in advance.

Why hire an event planner instead of managing it all yourself?

Years of experience means your event planner will know what works and what doesn’t -  your event isn’t the time to consider trial and error. And their experience can save you significant time and money. You only need to speak with one person (the planner!) and they’ll coordinate with all vendors and suppliers. With everything taken care of, you can also enjoy yourself at your party instead of worrying about the little details.

What are the steps involved in event planning?

Firstly, an event planner will meet with you to talk about your event. They will find out the look and feel you’d like and start designing your ideal party. Once you’ve agreed on themes and ideas, they’ll source vendors and suppliers to bring your vision to life. They’ll negotiate pricing so you get the best deal, plus ensure vendors know what’s expected to make the event a success. They can even book security for those bigger parties to ensure a safe environment for all partygoers.

How much does an event planner cost?

You can expect to pay an average of $82 -$160 when you book your event planner through Airtasker. The cost of event planning may vary depending on the location, type, and size of your party, plus how much help you need. Prices are usually higher for wedding or corporate events, and you can expect to pay more for event management and any other add-ons.

What does event planning include?

Planning ahead (sometimes up to 12 months in advance) is important, especially for major events. Your event planner will keep everything on track and moving forward, calling on their creative vision and organising skills at every step. Most event planners regularly cover events like:

Corporate event planning

Event planners aren’t just about the glitz and glamour - they can also make sure your corporate event comes off polished and professional. Company events include conferences, seminars, product launches, award nights, and even publicity stunts. Whatever your event, your planner can make any corporate or industry event feel more special and less like work. Firstly, they will meet with you to discuss your vision, budget, and expectation for the event. Next, they’ll develop a strategy that helps bring your theme to life. From there, they’ll find appropriate suppliers who can provide everything you need for the event. Some corporate event planners can also help with destination conferences so you can be confident that everything will be ready when you arrive. 

Wedding planning

An wedding event planner can help make your dream day a reality. They’ll meet with you to talk about how you want your wedding day to look and feel, and then they’ll find a way to make your dream a reality. They’ll think of everything, so you don’t have to, like: creating a wedding budget, finding vendors, arranging transport, and styling your venue. They’ll keep you informed at every step of the way and stick to a timeline make sure it all happens just right. Engaging an event planner puts you in complete control without any of the stress and running around. Many event planners also offer event management services to help everything run smoothly on the day, so you can be involved as much or as little as you like.

Planning for special occasions and birthdays

Whether it’s your child’s themed birthday or a sophisticated soiree for adults, your event planner can help coordinate and organise a birthday party event that’ll be remembered for years. Your event planner will help lock in the venue, catering, balloons, entertainment, and birthday cake for your event. Enjoy a special event with friends and family, knowing even the smallest details have been taken care of. From setting up to cleaning up, your event planner will make your party goes off without a hitch.

All packages start with a 1 hour one on one customized consultation at the event space or home the client chooses. The consultation will cover the areas in event strategy, design, planning, budget all in detail, your ideas and what your trying to create, and which areas would be relevant to your event. From here, I design a plan covering your areas that are relevant with details on what you need and how to create the event you have brought forward. Turn around time for your one on one consulting plan is up to 3 business days(small events usually 1 business day). I deliver your plan with another 1 hour consult to discuss any areas you need to clarify. I am willing to travel to you. Event consultations are best done face to face. I like to be able to get to know the client and their needs and wants so I can deliver the perfect event for you. I have 18 years experience in Hospitality as well as a degree in Event Management. I have done events under some big names as well as VIP weddings. I like to think of myself as a hard worker and someone who loves to create special moments for the priceless look on my clients face being the reward at the end of the day.

I can send through the video of the room and what the rigging points are like, I’m just aware of the small timeframe we have to put it together The centrepieces won’t be too large or extravagant so bump out shouldn’t be too extensive Thanks Neg
