10 Reasons Why You Should Book A Wedding Planner

Updated: Dec 3, 2018

If you do not have an Event Planner/Coordinator, YOU will be the point of contact for all vendors on the day of your event and will need to solve all problems that arise. This can be extremely stressful. You will need to answer questions such as where do you want the flowers? Why isn't the bakery here yet? Where should we put the guests who arrived last minute even after they said they could not attend? I'm sure you would much rather ENJOY your event by spending time with friends & family instead of dealing with the set up/break down. This is when an Event Planner/Coordinator comes in handy! They will be the point of contact and will make sure everything is on time and running smoothly. They will also take care of packing your valuables and any items that you wish to keep at the end of the event so you can say goodbye to guests. 


1. SAVE MONEY We are well networked with vendors, venue managers, speakers and other personnel required to make your event a success. You need to realize that hiring Gianola Events gives you tested and cost effective vendors (courtesy of our network) that will deliver.

​2. SAVES YOUR TIME  Choosing to plan your event at first might seem easy; you have this “how hard can it be” attitude, selecting the venue, hiring vendors, choosing the aso-ebi etc, but you find out as the event draws closer, little details start popping up in places you least expect and as these come up, your stress level starts to multiply. Before you know it, you are overwhelmed. We have a pretty good idea how this works down to the little details that pop up; better yet, you have less to worry about and more time to do other things and actually ENJOY your event!

​3. BUDGET MANAGEMENT Having planned different events over time, we know the value of a particular item or element of the event and can out rightly let you know if the cost of something is overpriced. Furthermore, we know your budget limit for this and that, we can draw on our experience to give you suitable options and alternatives if need be. You can be rest assured that whatever you spend, what absolutely necessary and worth it.​

4. TO HELP YOU PREVENT COSTLY MISTAKES Our attention to detail, experience and comprehensive logistics awareness is all it takes to prevent you from making costly mistakes that could jeopardize your event. The risk of something going wrong at your event is too high to not pay attention because as with anything else, if something can go wrong, it will!

5. WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE Hiring Gianola Events for your event is like having a laptop on on your desk when writing some difficult exams. The experience and knowledge base of an event planner is invaluable when planning events.​

6. SKILLFUL NEGOTIATOR When dealing with vendors and suppliers for whatever event you are putting together, the benefits of having a skillful negotiator on your side is your joker card. How many times do you negotiate the cost of speakers, event furniture and Audio-visuals? You might think you got a good deal, but we are up to date with industry practices and trends and can ultimately use our experience to ask for a better deal that will be of benefit to you.

​7. MINIMIZE STRESS AND KEEP TO YOUR TIMELINE Do you know you can actually organize an event without bothering yourself about a single detail? Yes, its your event and Yes you paid big bucks for it, but at the same time you can still be treated like those honourable guests you invited who do not worry about event logistics or any such details and yet are treated like royalty and get to taste every single delicacy on offer.  As your event planner, we take on your event stress and headaches will leave you feeling like royalty, furthermore our organizational skills ensure that your event timeline is strictly followed so you can ease up on the sweating, fussing and losing your voice screaming at vendors at your event. Indulge yourself, trust the experts.

​8. PROFESSIONAL CONSULTATION With Gianola Events as your event planner on your event, you can be sure that whatever suggestions and or recommendations we make are industry best practices that have been tested and proven to deliver successful events.

​9. THAT PROFESSIONAL TOUCH Whether you like it or not, people will talk about your event afterwards. Be it a wedding, concert, award, dinner etc people will talk and there is absolutely nothing you can do about that. Since they cannot be stopped, the most you can do is give them positive takeaways from your event to talk about. Giving your event that professional, almost like clockwork touch will see your event being the talk of town and what every other event wants to emulate.

10. RELAX There’s nothing stopping you from running your own event, of course. At the same time, it’s still worth asking yourself whether or not you strictly need to do things on your own. Hiring Gianola Events as your planner instead of shouldering the burden yourself can—aside from preventing a few extra gray hairs—save you time and money; both of which can be spent on making things bigger, better, and more enjoyable for everyone involved.
