Top Event Planning related questions
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 a 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.
A 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 to 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.
