HIRE A PLANNER
You now find yourself staying home and anxiously trying to make decisions about how to start planning your event as the world deals with the COVID-19 pandemic. Of course, as a planner myself, I’m admittedly biased when it comes to the topic. And, while I’ll never tell you that you absolutely must hire a planner, I sincerely believe in the value of professional planning. When we’re all on the other side of this, there will be no more meaningful experience than a social celebration. So start planning!
PICK YOUR DATE(S)
If you haven’t already, it’s time to figure out when you’d like to have your event and select a few alternative dates. Flexibility is critical; now more than ever. Whether you’re planning an intimate celebration for less than 50 people or upwards of 100, you could very well come across a shortage of available Saturdays in 2021. As many of you know, Saturday venue availability can be hard to come by in normal circumstances. That will be be amplified in 2021 because so many 2020 events have already had to postpone and reschedule for new 2021 dates.
The bottom line is this that those who have a full-service planner have found themselves in a much better position. The rescheduling process has been more efficient and smoother. Those who do not have a planner have had to fend for themselves or they’ve had to scramble to find someone to hire who can help them. There are many reasons to hire a full-service planner, but the most important reason is for your special day to be organized, beautiful, and stress-free.
Remember Love is not Canceled, so it’s okay to be excited and start the process. There’s no need to do it all on your own….hire a planner!
