There is no need to go from one vendor to the next since she can also do the task for you. Since it is her job to arrange and create weddings, she also has a vast knowledge on where she can get reliable vendors at discounted prices. Of course, you will still be the one to agree if you will hire the vendors she will recommend, but she will still have plenty of vendors for you to see and choose.
I would recommend that you hire, budget permitting, a professional photographer rather than leaving it up to one of your guests or a friend of a friend who only takes photos twice a year. You can have the photographer deliver prints or a CD of digital photographs in which case you could print just the photos you want.
If you are having a dinner party for 20 people, for example, imagine your kitchen. Do you have all of the pots and pans for the cooking process? Do you have enough oven space to manage it all? Even worse, do you have the right number of matching dishes and silverware? It’s a good idea to simply hire a professional to do this work because that company has everything that’s necessary and does not have to buy it like you would.
Be mindful of the dish choice specially when you might have visitors with specialized dietary specifications. You could have invitees having special low-carb or higher protein diets. Maybe, several may have diabetes or allergies. You have to bear this in mind when deciding on the types of food items to offer. In order to be safe, make sure to put dairy as well as gluten-free meals. You can never make a mistake with vegetarian recipes and salads to boot. Be sure to test each and every dish before you accept them.
I once attended a banquet in a quaint “50’s malt-shop-type restaurant. The party planner had not gone there to look at the room where the party was to be. She had just taken the word of a friend. True, it was a great restaurant, but their “room” had about 5 permanent booths on each wall. Guests were facing in all different directions. This made it almost impossible for the magician they had hired to perform. To further confuse the issue, it was not even a private room. Restaurant customers could not get to the restroom without disturbing the party, and the 50’s music continued to blare through the ceiling speakers throughout the evening because it was piped throughout the whole restaurant and could not be isolated from one room. A visit beforehand could have prevented this nightmare.
Portable Heaters. For outdoor events, these are a must have. While the night descends into cold temperatures, you can keep guests warm and comfy with outdoor heaters. Ask your event hire if they have mushroom heaters, area heaters, or PatioPal heaters. All these types can be used inside marquee tents and are great for any type of party. Simply enquire on their specifications so you can choose which one suits the venue most.
