3 Great Qualities Of An Events Planner

Would you plan your event or trust a professional to do it for you instead?  If you can afford it; I’d suggest you employ the services of a professional and be guaranteed a positive and memorable experience. It’s wedding season in Zimbabwe; exciting times as we get to divert our attention to more positive things. 

“Did you know that event planning is the 5th most stressful job in the world.”

Despite that staggering statistic, it turns out it can be very rewarding when clients are happy with a job well done. I’d want you to experience a perfect and stress free event as well.  I’ll share the qualities you need to look out for when choosing a great event planner. 


1. Creativity

Bespoke Weddings mission statement  reads; Bespoke, Sophisticated, Style Conscious, Weddings and Events that Mesh Cultural Richness and Chic Glamour.

Wedding at the top of the mountain anyone?  Do you have an idea for your event you think might not materialise because maybe just maybe it sounds like such a wild idea?  BeSpoke Weddings will make sure it works.  No more worrying about where you will get the perfect venue or breaking your budget.  They can turn a completely plain space into a magical place that will take your breath away.

While we’re on the creativity topic there are a lot of options available when it comes to choosing different elements for your event.  From decoration, food, furniture, flower arrangement the works. A great event planner will introduce you to the current way of doing things. This doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with the traditional methods but why not take the leap of faith and work with someone who has cutting edge ideas and up to date with the latest trends?  


2. Interpersonal Skills

Planning an event involves interacting with different people from all walks of life.  The event planner might need to work closely with the caterer, the venue owners, the decorations team,  the in-laws, you name it.  The ability to be able to communicate with people at all levels is key.  It’s a skill that will help the planner resolve conflicts, be a confident but pleasant negotiator, and still maintain a good sense of humour.  An event planner will need a great sense of humour considering a handful of things might go wrong.  A great event planner will allow themselves to have fun, enjoy the planning process and continue to build strong relations with people they are working with and working for.


3. Excellent Communication Skills

You need an event planner who keeps you on the loop. You don’t want to pay money for a service and hardly get to know what the situation on the ground is. Your event planner should inform you when things are going both right or wrong. Unpleasant surprises that you get to find out on your own without being told beforehand by your event planner will do you no good. Clear communication skills are key for an event planner who’s going to deliver great service.
