Party planners are like God’s gift to parents who need to organise a party for their kids. At any age, party planning can become stressful, time-consuming and an all-out dreadful experience if anything is forgotten or overlooked. That’s why we have an enormous list of party planners in Gauteng that will assist you with the finer details, from A to clear-up or even if it’s just a few things you want them to assist you with.
What do party planners do exactly?
Well, pretty much anything you need them to do. Party planners and event coordinators offer services in a wide range which may include everything for your party from start to finish. Invitations, cakes, décor, a venue, themed accessories, party packs and party entertainers… you name it and they will organise it for you or your little princess/rock star!
What to look for in a party planner:
- Must be up to date with the latest styles and themes in parties.
- Must be willing to go the extra mile to make their clients happy
- Party planners must be organised people with a logical ‘to-do list’
- Make sure your party planner has all the important details of the party including dates, time, dress code.
- If you’re using a venue, give your party planner the contact details of the venue to enable smooth setup and arrangements between the planner and the venue.
- Be sure that the planner understands what your budget is and what exactly you require before proceeding with any payments.
- Has your party planner confirmed catering, entertainment, photographers, music and anything else you requested? What about the themed cake?
Just kids parties or other events too?
Most party planners have the experience and offer to do any small to big function including weddings, baby and bridal showers, adult birthday or celebration parties, anniversaries and so much more. If there’s a reason to celebrate, then there’s a reason to call a party planner!
Having a party planner for your wedding
is without a doubt one of the best investments for peace of mind. Planning a wedding can be challenging when you have many different people to please, aside from yourself. Party planners and event coordinators are able to assist with everything from flowers, to table settings, centre-pieces, music, a venue, a cake and perhaps even a honeymoon… ok, that’s asking too much but there’s no limit to what you can expect from your party planner. Make sure to find a planner that understands your needs and is willing to put in the effort to make your dream day beautiful and memorable.
Party planners often have a selection of party entertainers on call to entertain at your party or function. Face painters, balloon sculptors, clowns, magicians, fire acts and more, you ask for it and they will make it happen. We also have a directory of party entertainers
on our website that you may browse through should you choose to hire your own party entertainment.
Party accessories and supplies
Party planners will do the running around for all the accessories and supplies you need to complete your party. Unicorn cupcakes, pirate plates and cups, ballerina centre pieces and baby blue tablecloths for a baby shower… no problem. Party planners will source all the necessities as well as ‘must-haves’ for that glamorous or funky party! You can also find party supplies by clicking here
Photographers and party equipment
Party planners are always well connected and hooked up to the best in the industry. That’s why they can sort out a photographer, jumping castles, candy floss machines and coffee bars on your behalf. Who’ll remember the party without some amazing photos to capture the day? Ensure that you have a list of things to chat to your party planner about so that you don’t miss a thing! You can find photographers on our website too, just photographers
Once the party planner has done everything on their side, all you need to do is sit and relax at your party! Mingle and be present knowing that someone else is responsible for all the niggly bits of the party.
