What do you love most about your job?

The excitement of planning and designing memorable wedding and events , and seeing the facial expression of our clients when they see their vision before them as they walk into the room. You get such a feeling of satisfaction and an overwhelming feeling comes over you, its very exciting.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Events was always apart of me when I was in high school. I was setting up fashion show events, and busy helping design school events, and helping at home with family parties and dinners. This extended to my job where I was assigned to handle our office parties for employees birthday and company parties. When my best friend asked me to plan and design her wedding of 350 guest, I was shocked and a bit doubtful if I could of pulled it off, I did with flying colors, and my passion for event planning was in full force from there on.

Why should our clients choose you?

There are many great and creative planners in the industry and we all have one goal in mind " happy clients ". What I would like my ideal clients to take away from the answer to this question: At HazelBurgan.com we are all about you having the best time of your lives with friends and family, no matter what event it is. We love planning , designing and making sure that the guest have such a great time that they do not want to leave the venue, and our clients are very pleased with our execution.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

Yes we can and we do. Since the pandemic hit us in 2020, the industry took a great fall and business was very slow, and we started Zoom , text and phone contact with our clients and they loved it. We were able to get much accomplished and all events were amazing.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

We follow guidelines with distancing, and even all clients have to keep their mask on while consulting in person. We have not had any issues with clients not being comfortable with our decision. Presently we are doing online zoom, text and emails with all our clients.

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!
