Susanna Stewart Events: A Sumptuous Soirée

Anyone who has hosted an event knows how time-consuming and labour-intensive it can be. Add in trying to create a polished and cohesive ambiance while ensuring that the evening runs without a hitch, and then endeavor to be the perfect host while still enjoying yourself— that is a pretty big ask for even the savviest entertainer.

This past week, top event planner Susanna Stewart presented a wonderfully curated long table dinner. Incorporating many of Vancouver’s top local brands, such as Our Little Flower Company and Symmetry & Grace, beverages by Lavish Liquid Bar and Sandhill Wines, and catering by innovative Boy with a Knife.

3 Reasons for Hiring an Events Planner

  • It will save you a lot of valuable time
    Having one point of contact to take over all the meetings and organization between vendors is going to save you an enormous amount of time and stress. An experienced event planner is also going to have a relationship with the all the trades you could need for your event, meaning they are going to know who to go to for your needs.  Already knowing the best people means that, unlike you, they do not have to trawl through pages of reviews making sure each company lives up to your expectations. At the event itself, you can look forward to relaxing and enjoying yourself, leaving any last-minute tweaks or wrinkles to be dealt with by your planner.
  • It will make the most of your budget
    For most people one of the biggest parameters for their event is budget, and this is often why people forgo a planner. However, a planner can be your greatest budgetary asset. Not only do they know the smart things to spend money on and where to cut back, but they also know where to get the best value for your money. Because your planner already has a relationship with many of the vendors, they can select the best ones for your budget and, if appropriate, ask vendors if there is wriggle room to work within your budget. All of this adds up to mean that in the long run, an event planner can save you money.
  • It will create a beautiful and cohesive event
    Even for the most organized and detail-oriented host, the prospect of planning a perfectly curated event can be more than a little overwhelming. Your event planner has done this many times before, so they know what makes a great event. By having a realistic understanding of cost and timeframe, an event planner can guide your event to its optimum potential. They will make sure that none of the little details get left behind or lost, and they already know what works and what doesn’t and how simple things can complete an event. Event planning is a balance between communication, costing and creativity, and a good planner is worth their weight in gold. So, let them do their job while you do yours, which is to host your fabulous event and enjoy it.
