In this world today full of DIYs and YouTube tutorials, most people would want to put things and events into their own hands. However, there is still a fine line between amateur and professional output. This not only applies to knitted sweaters or wedding cakes, but to event organizing services as well.
There are lots of life events to be celebrated – baptism, baby showers, engagements, weddings, birthdays. Some would just resort to DIY and organize their own event while some would go the extra mile and hire an event organizer. So what’s really the more practical route? Would it be easier to have a DIY event preparation or to hire a professional event organizer?
Here are some pros when it comes to hiring an event organizer:
- You can just sit back, relax and let the event organizer work through all the nitty-gritty details of the event. The most important thing is that you have a clear vision or idea of how you want the event to be and ensure that you and the event organizer are on the same page.
- Make sure that the event organizer that you hired has a good portfolio and a respectable reputation. There are some event organizers that are only good with lip service and theory but have absolutely no credibility in reality. It would be best to choose an event organizer based on referrals from family and/or friends. You can also check out online reviews, forums, and Yelp scores to guide you.
At the end of the day, it is really up to you if you will hire an event organizer or not. If the event is something intimate and would not need a lot of preparations, you might want to consider trusting your DIY skills — with a little help from the Internet. However, if you think that an event needs some major preparations and extravagant designs, it would be wiser to skip the YouTube tutorials and Pinterest pegs. Save yourself the trouble and hire a professional event organizer.
