What is the difference between an ‘event planner ‘and an ‘event designer’?
This is a very common question so it's definitely worth addressing.
Any great event is thoroughly planned in all aspects, but the ones that are unforgettable are strong from a logistical standpoint as well as from a creative and design standpoint.
EVENT PLANNER - The strengths of an event planner are the organizational aspects of planning your day:
Event Planners are the foundation and backbone of managing the event itself, and ensuring that nothing is overlooked or forgotten in preparation, and most importantly, taking care of you, the client to ensure you have a wonderful wedding day
EVENT DESIGNER – A talented event designer has the ability to draw upon your inspiration, emotion, creativity, style and taste and interpret it into a personal event aesthetic that truly represents you. Event design considers all of the senses and how not only you, but also how all your guests will experience your event from start to finish – we call this the 'A6':
Thoughtfully working with you the client, your needs, your budget and taste, an event designer will beautifully bring your vision of your day to life.
When you’re considering whether or not to hire help to plan the wedding of your dreams, think about how important it is to have the day not only flow smoothly but also be as beautiful as you envision it. When you contract for planning and design, choose wisely and contract them separately.
Chances are the person who best understands your vision for the day is a completely different person than the person who can help plan all the logistics of the day. Working together, these two professionals will go above and beyond to deliver and tightly executed and thoughtfully gorgeous event that you and your guests will never forget.
