Why DIY Might Be A Don’t


DIY is all the craze now for events, especially with so many Pinterest boards of how you can throw the perfect wedding all by yourself.  Well, I am here to tell you that it is not always what Pinterest may show.  It takes blood, sweat, and tears to create the perfect event.  If something goes awry, you have to fix it and abandon your wedding to do so!

Here are some of the reasons events are best left to the event production, nyc professionals.

1.  Who you gonna call?  Your event planner!

When planning a large event like a wedding, there are always hiccups along the way.  If you are planning this all by yourself, or worse with family, many problems may come up.  Instead of enjoying the process or the party, you would have to deal with the complications so your guests are none the wiser.  Unless, of course, you have an event planner.  They are trained to fix these sorts of issues and usually do so without breaking a sweat.  Then you can breathe easier.

2.  When in doubt, opinions count

There are a plethora of decisions that must be made when planning an event.  Most of which are minute to the average person, but can add important details or even behind the scenes structure that allows for a perfect event.

When having to make all of these decisions without a professional it can be overwhelming and others may weight in a bit too much.  An event planner can take a lot of these little things off of your plate so you can focus on the colors, seating arrangements, and other fun stuff.

3.  Cost of not knowing

It may seem that hiring a professional would mean paying more for an event, but with their knowledge and inside deals it can actually cost much less.  Sometimes there is a cost to not knowing.

4.  Time to enjoy

When having an event, things can go wrong during the actual party.  This is where an event planner shines and gives you the time to enjoy the party and your guests.
