On to day number two and the second reason to hire a planner. This applies to couples, corporate executives, CEOs, associations, and anyone whose asked to plan events (and it's not part of their job title). Here's why you should hire a planner - because you need someone to take the ideas that you have, and make then actually happen. To help create a streamline plan and execute the plan seamlessly.
I met with a couple today that is getting married in June. They inspired me to write reason number two. They were very laid back, which is a nice type of client to have; except, they also had no real direction. They has Pinterest inspiration, cultural influences, family input, and fun ideas they saw at other weddings; but they needed help to bring it together in a way that was feasible and fit the budget.
I have also experienced this with corporate clients. They have an idea of what they want and absolutely no clue how to actually make it happen. Or if they can even make it happen. One of my clients always tosses the expertise angle to me. He'll tell me what he things he wants, and then says 'But you do this, so you probably know better than I do, if that can even be done'. I appreciate his recognition and think it fits nicely into the point of Reason #2.
So, what's the reason to day to have a planner? Because you need someone to bring all your ideas together, create direction, and make sure it's executed flawlessly. Tune in tomorrow. Until then, stay magnificent.
