When it comes to hiring an event planner, one of the objections I hear most often is that people just can’t afford it. I am a mom of 5, I home-school, and I’m a businesswoman so I know how important it is to stick to a budget. However, I also know how stressful the planning process can be especially when you are planning events for yourself. Ten years ago I planned my own wedding with very little help from anyone else. There were several times when I wished I’d had a little support or just an objective third party to bounce ideas off of. However, I just could not afford an event planner especially when everyone that I spoke to was going to charge me the same price regardless of the level of services I needed. I didn’t like it then, and I don’t like it now.
That’s why I’m so excited to tell you about a service I recently began offering. It’s virtual event planning! What is virtual event planning? It’s the best solution for someone who needs help with the logistics of event planning and doesn’t necessarily need a lot of face-time with an even planner. It’s also a great option for those of us who have to be mindful of the bottom line.
How does virtual event planning work? Thanks to all of the wonderful technology we have at our disposal, I’m able to offer many of the same services I offer my full planning clients, but at a fraction of the price. This is because you will only be paying for the services you really need and it’s all done virtually so you’re not paying to meet with someone. This also means that I am able to offer this service to you regardless of your location!
