What do you love most about your job?

To be able to create unforgettable moments for my clients and their guest.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Deep inside, I've always wanted to start my own business. Even going back to years as a teenager, I remember thinking of how it would feel to start and own something of my own. Like so many other teenagers, I watched my parents worked tirelessly only to come feeling half empty and joyless. They weren't working to live life but living life to work. It was during this time I developed a passion in fashion that lead to a passion in event planning and design. So after years of encouragement from friends and clients, I decided to forego my career and to go for what I love. Yes, it was time to go into the unknown and take a leap of faith to start my own business. It was a tough decision and thankful I made it.

Event & Party Planners FAQs

Expand all

Most event planners charge their clients anywhere from 10-20 percent of the total cost of the event, with 15 percent being the average.

Your professional event planner will be able to advise you on the full range of options available, helping you to choose the best one for your needs. Use Bark to find trusted event planners near you and request quotes for free!

Some of the common services your event planner can help with include:

  • Conducting research

  • Creating an event design

  • Finding a suitable venue

  • Arranging for food, decorations, and entertainment

  • Planning transportation to and from the event

  • Sending invitations to attendees

  • Arranging accommodation for attendees

  • Coordinating the activities of event staff

  • Supervision at the site

  • Conducting evaluations of the event

Following these steps will ensure that you find the right Event Planner for you:

  • Objective - Before you start your search, you need to work out the event's objective, the budget you are working with, and your reason for hiring externally. You want to be in a position to communicate the broad outline of the event and its most important goals. You will also want to decide on the budget for your event planner and what they will be expected to do. A party planner can select the venue, recommend food and beverage options, source speakers and entertainment, be on-site on the day and create the invitations.

  • Find your event planner - You want to hire someone who has expertise in creating your type of event. Word of mouth is one way to find an event planner but it's not always the most effective approach. Look out for a company with experience and a strong reputation and do your online research by reading company reviews on Bark.

  • Interview applicants - Most event planners will be eager to hear about your event. Give them brief details at first and focus on their expertise in the initial round of interviews. Reduce your list of candidates to the three strongest applicants. You should then ask each finalist about their business, their experience with past events, and how they plan for contingencies.

  • Decision time - Once you have hired a company, the event planner should be able to share a detailed plan for the event with you.

  • Budget - Many people who organise an event for the first time want a champagne event on a beer budget. You need to work together to come up with a realistic budget. Plus, do not forget to find out about the fees that will be charged by the event planner and how they will be incorporated into the budget.

  • Follow up - Make sure you stay on top of the event planning and do not force the event management expert to make major decisions without your input.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local event planners listed will give you a reliable and professional service.

There is no formal training required to be an event planner, although they usually have a degree or certificate from a university in event planning or management.

Before you choose an event planner, it's always worth checking out their customer reviews on their website and Bark profile. This ensures that they are trustworthy and reliable.

Absolutely! Whether it's finding the best DJ or getting your catering sorted, your event and party planner will be able to organise pretty much every aspect of the event online. You can even find the perfect venue through interactive virtual venue tours - pretty neat stuff!
