Throwing a party, wedding, or corporate event is something of a juggling act. If you are putting together an event with a large number of different contractors, freelancers, and assistants, you’ll need to make sure that they are all operating on the same schedule. In many cases, that sort of thing can snowball out of your control. For example, if you are getting your tables and table settings from one vendor but you are using a different caterer, you can easily end up in a situation where your party is on hold. If the table setting vendor is running late, the caterers can’t set up, so everything will be put on hold. There are many situations like this in party planning, where one element of the party depends on some other element.
If you are having an outdoor party and it starts to rain, you will need to have the tent put up before you can set up anything else. The list goes on. These are a few of the things that could go wrong with your party. In the wedding industry, wedding planners will tell you that at least one thing will go catastrophically awry. There is a way to avoid all of that, however.
If you want to make sure that your party goes off without a hitch, you need to hire as few vendors as possible. Ideally, you will hire only one vendor. A professional party hire can be your one-stop shop for everything you need for your party. When you choose event hire specialists, they will not only have everything you need, they will also advise you on what you might need for your party. For example, they’ll be able to provide you with a tent for an outdoor party, tables, table settings, chairs, food, dishes, and so on. They have everything you need.
Additionally, the best specialists will have flooring available for outdoor parties if you want to have a dance floor, a stage, special lighting, or anything else you can think of. When you hire from a single vendor, it is very simple to get everything you need. Also, you can avoid the snowball effect. If you order from just one vendor, everything will show up all at once, and there will be no waiting.
Hiring from one vendor can also save you some money. You often have to pay transaction fees or reservation fees from a vendor; so, if you order from five vendors, that’s five reservations fees and five transaction fees. Not to mention many vendors have minimum purchase amounts. All of that can add up, since those little charges and inconveniences are multiplied by the number of vendors. If you only have one vendor, you won’t have to pay for those little annoyances over and over.
That will save you a good deal of money on your party, and it will also save you some time. You should look for discounts as well. They are fairly common in the winter. If you find a discount for winter parties, make sure the specialist you choose provides heating.
