I believe that with the power of the internet, you can learn almost anything. But do you want to? … Hiring an event planner is no different than hiring any other professional service. Some people tend to think it’s more optional than other professional services, and that can be true, but don’t discount it just yet.
Can you think of the last event you attended where you had a great experience and everything seemed to run smoothly? What about the event that was not so fun, was behind schedule, and overall not a great experience?
Chances are there was an event planner or coordinator involved in one of those and not in the other.
My point here is not to “sell” you on always hiring a professional event planner, but tell you when it could make sense.
