Why should I hire an event planner?

When it comes to planning an event, the value of an event planning and design expert simply cannot be overstated. At Lily & Boothe, we have the expertise, resources, and experience to help you seamlessly plan and execute an event that exceeds your expectations.

First and foremost, hiring an event planner saves you time and stress. Planning an event can be a complex and overwhelming task, and it can be difficult to balance all the different elements that go into hosting a successful event. By hiring professionals, you can delegate all the logistical, creative, and administrative aspects of event planning to someone who has the expertise and experience to handle them with ease. This allows you to focus on what matters most—enjoying the event and making timeless memories with your guests.

In addition to saving you time and reducing your stress, an event planner can also save you money. Our team brings long-standing partnerships with vendors, which can result in cost savings for you. We also have proven experience negotiating contracts and managing costs, which ensures that your event stays within your budget while still achieving your desired outcome.

Perhaps most importantly, hiring an event planner can provide you with peace of mind. Lily & Boothe has experience handling all types of events, from intimate gatherings to large-scale events, and we know what it takes to make an event highly successful. We take care of every detail, from vendor selection and logistics to event design and management, so you can relax and enjoy your special day without worrying about anything going wrong.

In short, engaging an event planner is an invaluable investment in the success of your celebration. Our goal is to save you time, money, and stress while ensuring that every aspect of your special occasion is well-planned and executed. Contact us to learn more about how we can help make your event a success.

How do you determine the cost of your event planning services?

At Lily & Boothe, we understand that each event is unique, which is why we offer a personalized approach to pricing. For weddings, we offer various packages to choose from, but we can also customize a package that fits your specific needs and budget. We believe in being transparent and upfront about our pricing, so you can have complete confidence in the services we provide.

For other events, such as special occasions or corporate events, the pricing is based on the scope and complexity of the event. Our team will work with you to determine your event’s specific needs and provide you with a detailed, personalized quote. We’ll take the time to go over each element of the proposal with you, so you can be sure that you’re getting the services you need at a price that works for you.

At Lily & Boothe, we are committed to providing our clients with exceptional service at an affordable price. Our pricing process is designed to be clear, straightforward, and customized to your needs, so you can have confidence in the quality of our work and the value we provide. Contact us today to discuss your event and get a personalized quote. We’re always here to help!

Can I choose my own vendors, or do you work with specific vendors?

At Lily & Boothe, we are committed to making sure your event is tailored to your unique vision. While we have a network of trusted vendors that we work with regularly, we understand that you may have a specific vendor in mind that you would like to use for your event.

Rest assured, you are more than welcome to bring in your own vendors for your event. Our team will collaborate with you and your vendors to ensure that everything runs smoothly and seamlessly. We want to make sure that every detail is accounted for, and that includes coordinating with your chosen vendors.

That being said, we do encourage you to consider using our established network of vendors. They are seasoned professionals who have worked with us on numerous occasions and have a proven track record of delivering exceptional results. When you work with our vendors, you can trust that they will deliver the same level of quality and service that we pride ourselves on.

Whether you choose to work with our trusted vendors or bring in your own, our goal remains the same – to make sure that your event is a resounding success. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help bring your vision to life.

What are the benefits of hiring an event planner for my event?

Hiring an event planner can be a game-changer when it comes to saving time and money for your event. According to industry estimates, planning a wedding requires an average of 200 to 300 hours. And the studies by both the National Association of Catering and the International Association of Conference Centers found that using a professional planner saves clients up to 30% on event costs.

At Lily & Boothe, we have a team of experienced professionals who are well-connected in the industry and can leverage their relationships with vendors to secure better deals and discounts for you. We take care of all the logistics, details, and negotiations, so you can focus on savoring your celebration and making lasting memories with your guests. By working with us, you can avoid costly mistakes, streamline the planning process, and stay within your budget. Additionally, we bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table, which means we can offer creative solutions and innovative ideas that you may not have considered on your own.

Our goal is to help you create a memorable occasion that exceeds your expectations, and we will do everything in our power to make that happen.

How far in advance should I book your event planning and design services?

At Lily & Boothe, we understand that every event is unique and that timelines can vary. However, we recommend booking our services as soon as you have decided to host an event. While some clients book us a year or more in advance, we have also worked with clients who book just a few weeks before their event. We always strive to accommodate our clients’ needs, whenever possible.

Booking early allows us to secure your desired date and ensures that we have enough time to plan and execute your event to perfection. This is particularly important for events with a large guest list, complex logistics, or unique design elements that require additional time and attention. By booking early, we can also build a relationship with you and better understand your vision and goals for the event, which allows us to provide more personalized and effective event planning and design services tailored to your needs.

In the end, there is no set timeline for booking our services, but the sooner you book, the better. We are committed to making your event a success and will work with you to provide exceptional event planning and design services, regardless of when you book. Contact us today to start planning your next unforgettable event.

What factors should I consider when choosing an event planning company, and how do I determine if yours is the best fit?

When it comes to making the critical decision of choosing an event planning company, there are a number of factors to consider. You want to find a company that is reliable, experienced, and able to collaboratively bring your vision to life. We believe that we have all of these qualities and more.

To determine if the Lily & Boothe team is the best fit for you, we recommend setting up a personal consultation. During this meeting, we will get to know you and your event goals, as well as discuss our planning process and design services. This is also a chance for you to ask any and all questions you may have and determine if we are a good fit for your needs.

We understand that trust and transparency are key components of a successful client-planner relationship. That’s why we work to establish a partnership with our clients, becoming a trusted advisor and friend throughout the planning process. Our goal is to ensure that your event is a unique reflection of your personality and style.

If you ultimately decide that we are not the right fit for you, we are happy to recommend other event planning companies that may better suit your needs.

Kind Words

When our wedding coordinator had to back out three weeks before our event, I was in panic mode. You stepped in and stayed so calm and happy through it all. Somehow you managed to juggle everything we threw your way. The wedding was everything we hoped it would be and more. What would we have done without you?

Javier P.

Thank you for your hard work, dedication, and passion in making this celebration such a huge success. Our friend will always remember this milestone birthday, and we will always remember the amazing party that you planned for us.
